  4. Dishonored
  5. Assassin’s Creed 3
  6. Papo & Yo
  7. The Last Story
  8. LittleBigPlanet Vita
  9. Halo 4
  10. Torchlight 2




  1. well deserved!

    Game of the year for me. you know those games that you play and finish and you feel sad and wish you lost your memory so you can play it live the experience? this is one of those games


  2. The best game for the Wii! I hope people who didn’t get a Wii and are getting a Wii U would get it!

    Getting awarded and such is great but they need sells aswell.


  3. Xenoblade and The Last Story were certainly some of my favorite titles of the year. I actually like The Last Story a bit more, but that is just my taste. Xenoblade seems a bit too expansive at times, but I still love it. Both games are truly great on their own, and masterpieces on the Wii. It is sad they came out at the bitter end, and it is also a shame some people shunned the Wii because of no HD. I love HD as much as the next guy but these games are instant classics in any genre, but especially RPG’s. Having said that, I can’t wait for Ni no Kuni! Totally my type of game.


    • While the lack of HD on the Wii was/is disappointing, I have to say that playing Xenoblade on my Wii U hooked up to HDMI definitely made the whole world look more vivid and with less jaggies than it ever did on my Wii…it just feels so much better on Wii U, and I loved it so much on my Wii…definitely my GOTY.


  4. I’m still hoping for Xenoblade to come from a Christmas gift. I will play it on Wii U most definitely, just need the game. If not, it is one of the higher priorities of games to get.


    • Not me. There were tons of other great games that came out this year. Halo 4 was way over hyped. The multiplayer was good (not the best MP game of the year) but the campaign was weak. Reach is still my favorite Halo game.


      • Really? Hmm I actually liked tthe halo 4 campaighn. I found reaches campaign(sorry I don’t want to knock on your favorite halo, as it is still a good game and its of course your opinion) kind of bland the locations were just boring most of the time. But we all have our opinions. But I found halo 4 as a breath of fresh air. And yeah there were a lot of other games that should be on this list. But I feel halo 4 belongs right where it is on that list, not the best this year. But certainlly one of the best
