Game of the Year, the people’s choice

So what would happen if a large gaming website allowed it’s millions of viewers from all corners of the world to vote on what should have been voted Game of the Year?

Well you end up with a list very similar to what the journalists themselves chose, but with the big name titles doing that little bit better.

Eurogamer released their top 50 a little while back and in the end they gave their Game of the Year title to LittleBigPlanet, they then allowed the users to vote and the user top 10 looks as follows.

10. Dead Space
9. Burnout Paradise (I love this game)
8. Braid
7. Left 4 Dead
6. Fable II
5. LittleBigPlanet
4. MGS4
3. Gears of War 2
2. GTA IV

and the highly intelligent users of the world have chosen

1. Fallout 3

as their top title. I think the reason Fallout 3 is so popular is summed up perfectly by a user named Hamflank who says

“You can punch people’s heads off”

Can a game ever get any better than that?

On a sad note they did put Prince of Persia down at number 44 which is really disappointing. Click through to see all the good and bad choices made.
