****Hawk's annual GOTY Thread: 2010 edition****

3 replies 236 views Edited Dec 16, 2010

Intro) Well, here it is folks. My annual end of the year Game of the year thread. With the Holidays upon us and no new decent releases coming this month, this is a good time for us to pick our GOTY selections. Once again, if you've picked your GOTM selections from my previous thread and have at least completed a top 50 list, this should be easier to do. Just remember to take your time and that you have until the 1st weeks in Janaury to fill in your catagories.

OK, here are the catagories:

BTW, feel free to add any new catagories to this list. I left out the technical catagories, but someone else can do those if you wish. Just remember, your picks have to be Playstation games only that were released this year.

Thank you and have a Happy Holidays.

Yes, any PS1 classic that you bought this year counts as Retro GOTY. Also retro classic arcade games like Pacman CE DX, Mega man 10 and even Sonic 4:Ep 1 counts as a retro game. Sly collection almost counts as a reto game, but since it's more of a port and a remake from the PS2, it would be Port or remake GOTY. There will be a number of those types of games coming out next year, so the port/remake catagory certainly will work next year as well. 

Also, remember Multiplatform means 3rd best game in a given catagory and best game that's on multiplatforms. Sequal of the year simply means best game that's a sequel and PSN GOTY just means best arcade game. Because DLC and full arcade games are completely different and should be in seperate catagories IMO.

 

That's just a last minute reminder for anyone else that maybe confused about what some of the extra catagories mean.
