My (and your) Top Games by Year

Post by solidsnake78 on Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:20 am

I love lists, so I decided I would make a list of my GOTY for every year I have been alive, a lot of these would not even make my top ten which I think is interesting -

1991- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
1992- Wolfenstein 3D
1993- Zombies Ate My Neighbors (props to MYST though)
1994- Donkey Kong Country (X-COM: UFO Defense and Master of Orion are probably technically better, but I love DKC with a passion)
1995- I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream (Marathon 2: Durandal a close second)
1996- Resident Evil
1997- Age of Empires
1998- Metal Gear Solid (What a LOADED year btw, Half-Life, Resident Evil 2, Fallout 2, Ocarina of Time, Thief: The Dark Project, Falcon 4.0, wow)
1999- System Shock 2
2000- The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Thief II and Deus Ex get special mention)
2001- Metal Gear Solid 2
2002- Medieval: Total War (Another tough one, you got Morrowind and Vice City)
2003- Wind Waker (Max Payne 2 and Manhunt were this close, KOTOR a close fourth)
2004- Rome: Total War (Half Life 2 and MGS3 are amazing, but Rome is one of my top 5 favorite games of all time)
2005- Civilization IV
2006- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
2007- Mass Effect (Bioshock, any other year and it would be yours)
2008- Fallout 3 (sorry MGS4)
2009- Dragon Age: Origins
2010- Civilization V (ME2 used to hold this year, but has been surpassed by CIV5)
2011- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (This is a 2007 all over again, Human Revolution wins almost any other year. Witcher 2 aint bad either)
2012- Dishonored (First year to rival 98 IMO, Max Payne 3, Dragon's Dogma, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Endless Space, Walking Dead, Kingdoms of Amalur, and of course ME3)
2013- ATM it has to be Bioshock Infinite what a fantastic game

Well, that took an hour and a half lol.

You could've just asked for top games of all time :P

Awesome list. It's going to be difficult for me to disagree with much of that, but you can be sure I'll try my best. The hard part, as you well know, is figuring out what came out when. I'm sure wikipedia has a listing by year. At least, I hope so lol. I'll edit my list in when I get a chance.
