As voted by you!
Through the month of November, we asked for you to vote for your favourite games of the year. You did (and in incredible numbers – thank you for that), and now it’s time to announce the finalists and the winners. Each day we’ll be revealing a new category.
How it works
The five games you’ll see below are the top five games for each category based on the reader’s votes. They are listed in no particular order. The final game is the winner.
If there are six games listed, then there was a tie for the 5th finalist in that category.
We’d love to hear what you think about each category, so please do let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Clickclickclickclickclick. Torchlight 2 is refreshingly unpretentious about what it is. It’s a grinding, looting, levelling up kind of game.
I think it’s telling that in a year when Diablo 3 was released, this is the “Diablo-style” game that won the best game gong, and not Diablo 3. That’s not to say Diablo 3 is necessarily a bad game, but Torchlight 2 understands what players want from this genre better than any game before or after.
