Shadow Hearts: Covenant  Yahoo! Best JRPG that no one ever played. Probably my favorite game of all time. And it has to go up against one of my other favs in VTM: Bloodlines. The first Shadow Hearts was near FF7 quality, although the combat system and story are far better. The second improves in every way possible and dials up the weird Japanese humor to Persona levels.

I would give up a toe for an HD remaster.

Shadow Hearts Covenant was a gem. The old man collecting porno magazines was weird though.

Perfect, you mean perfect.

The only part of Covenant that was weaker than the first was the first area. SH starts dark af. Covenant less so.

A PS4 remaster of the series would be a dream. Or even a new one.

And KOTOR2 came out the year after KOTOR?  Crazypants.

KOTOR was Bioware and KOTOR2 was Obsidian so there was a bit of overlap in that early work on KOTOR2 started before the original released. Also KOTOR2 got rushed out early and had a bunch of stuff cut from it.

Yeah, I know, which is why I didn't say "no wonder it was so buggy".  It simply hadn't occurred to me that they were so close.  Still great games, I still occasionally take one or the other for a spin.  I think the gameplay and style holds up just fine...I wish they would make another one with nothing more than a graphical overhaul.

VTM-Bloodlines: I still go back and play it from time to time. Plus one of the greatest soundtracks in gaming history. God do I love that game, despite all its bugs and jankiness.
I replay it every few years as well. The haunted hotel level was the first time I remember a game honestly scaring me. The way that they made the different clans, especially the Malkavian and Nosferatu clans play so differently still impresses me.

I present to you, 2009. The only year that mattered. To me, at least.



I made some threats around Demon's Souls losing, but they were ignored. People played the odds I wouldn't follow through. Now we'll never know.

New Vegas takes it and it's not even really close.

This is likely the last we'll see of Mass Effect since Origin came out.

12 to 10 is pretty close.

We wont see anymore Mass Effect because this is where the series ended.   awesome, for real

Even I agree with New Vegas for that one.

Wasn't ME3 the one with the good multiplayer? As someone who completely shuns multiplayer, I liked it. I'm not saying it's Best Game for its year, but it's not automatically out of contention.

So I let this one run long to see if Minecraft would somehow sneak into a win even though I didn't give a shit about the results of 2011. Turns out it wasn't even a race between Minecraft and anything else. It was Portal 2 and Skyrim to the end. Wild.

Minecraft didn't surprise me because none of us was ten when it came out. I'm more surprised that Dark Souls ranks so low. Even though Schild has been leading the witnesses here a bit.

It wasn't a marquee year though going by the list.

Minecraft had a pretty big following here even back when it was still in beta/early access.

Demon's Souls was the best Souls game. The other Souls games have been varying degrees of good but not to the extent of any of us pushing for them for GOTY. I don't know that schild has even finished any game in the series other than Demon's Souls.

I think I've played more Minecraft with f13ers than any other game. Except maybe 2013's winner. Ahem.

We had various f13 minecraft servers for years. It's been kind of a big deal.

Rocksmith 2014 deserves a vote from me, they fixed the latency issues of the original and cleaned up a lot of UI stuff. It's basically a band if you don't want to play adult musician babysitter sim irl.

MGS V was good once you got past the initial awkwardness.

Weird to see Soma get that many votes. I don't remember much being said about it once it released.

Witcher 3 is still a solid winner. Fantastic game.

Hex would've been a clean sweep if Cory Jones wasn't a big poopyfaced assbag.

But for real, this is a fine victory even though Firewatch was better.
