Game of the Year was the subject of the last poll, and by the looks of things I didn’t really leave anything significant off the list. The results show that it was a pretty good year for games, since the top results are all within a few votes of each other, suggesting finding a favorite was pretty hard. It was for me. In fact, 2007 was probably the best year for games I can remember.
Personally, I picked Bioshock as the winner, especially since it’s the spiritual successor to one of my favorite games of all time – System Shock 2. I wasn’t let down by Bioshock in anyway. Other favorites for me were Mass Effect, Forza Motorsport 2, Halo 3 and The Witcher. I’ve been playing Call of Duty 4 the last few days as well, and that’s right up there too. I’m pretty tempted to buy a Wii just for Super Mario Galaxy too.
I’m slightly surprised that Halo 3 got the most votes though. I quite liked it, and any other year it would have been a contender for the best, but I though there were plenty of better games. Also, while I enjoyed Halo 3, probably more so than Halo 2, I don’t really think they did enough with the solo game, and I don’t really play much multiplayer.
