I'll be sure to let you know once the year is over, but if you're wondering what the top contender is at the moment I'll have to give it to Arkham City. [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/326.320344-Hypnotic-reviews-Batman-Arkham-City#13084235]
I'd probably say Dark Souls so far. There aren't any more games coming out this year that I really am interested in, honestly. Portal 2 and Human Revolution are my runners up though, it's been a pretty great year.
well, i haven't played either yet, but i'm sure it'll be a toss-up between skyward sword and mw3.
i don't care if they're casual or if skyward sword looks like garbage. i am pretty sure i'm gonna love the shit out of them.
