Hello everyone!

It's nearing the end of the year and people on forums all across the internet are starting threads asking for your best game of the year. So I thought i'd do the same.

What's your best game of the year?
Why do you think it's the best game of the year?
What great game should have an honourable mention for this year?

My choice for game of the year is Oblivion without a shadow of a doubt!

In my 20 years of gaming i've played many fantastic games, some really good games, quite a few average games and a lot of poor games.
None of these has ever immersed me and entertained me like Oblivion has.
I spent 302 hours completing the game and when I say completing I mean it. I've done every quest, side quest, shrine, cave, cavern and ruin. The game just seems to grab you and not let you go.
The graphics are very good, the sound is excellent but the gameplay is awesome!

Gameplay is king and many developers/publishers are still to work this out, even after 20 years!

My honourable mention for this year is Shadowgrounds.
An old school top down shooter much like the classic Alien Breed.
It gets a mention simply because it's a fun game to play with a truck load of weapons and lots of aliens.

My game of the year would have to be Call of Duty 2.

Though I have not had the longest time of gaming, the best game I have played in my 4 years would have to be Call of Duty 2. This game has good graphics (not the best but still good) kinda off sounds but most of all it's addictive. One other thing the gameplay is very smooth (that may just be my computer)

:whistling: Merry Christmas All!

For PC: Battlefield 2

Reason: BF2 has the best Graphic and very detail

For XBOX and PS2: Grand Theft Auto: San Andrea

Reason: Graphic, biggest map out of all other games. Also, this is the only game that contain the "N" word.

half life 2: episode 1

cod2

battlefield 2142

I judge the best games not on graphics alone, but on the story and gameplay. I haven't played oblivion myself except to try it out. I think its the game of the year.

Everyone spent their time developing the next gen game, gearing up for consoles, ect. There just wasn't the selection of outstanding games this year. Next year promises to be much different.

For me the most anticipated game is Crysis

See i haven't been totally knocked out by a game this year, there has been allot of good games, Oblivion came kinda close but the performance even on a decent computer and the fact they made you pay for tiny updates that to me whacked the whole game balance out spoiled it. So many games were spoiled for me by poor execution i hope next year we see more games that have had skill and attention like HL2, Quake and C&C games quality is the thing a game should play well and you shouldn't have to rely on patches for it to do it.

I've actually played quite a few good mods and older games this year, a couple great HL2 mods and Starshatter was a nice retro break back to the wing commander days.

Next year i have big hopes: there is the Farcry and two sequels to operation flashpoint(really looking fordward to an updated Flashpoint that game is exceptional now even with its age), Episode 2 of half life and team fortress.
A new command and conquer as well is coming and enemy territory, not to mention stalker and duke nukem. Next year is gonna be great especially after this year ive hardly had any games that have just gripped me and immersed me in the game, cant wait and if i see another half assed battlefield expansion im gonna go insane, too much too ask for a battlefield game that can work all the time.

I lost track of games the last two years.
I am an Unreal addict and I've played every single game of the Unreal Serie for pc.

I didn't play UT2K3 for long, but when UT2004 came, I was addicted to that game ever since. So I skipped a lot of other games.

When UT2007 comes out, I will play that game.

But for me, the best game of all times is Solitair.

I dont know how many loves gamin in PS2, but to me Black is one of the best. The thrill available in Black is just too good. The best part is u can fire down anythin that u see.
