PXoD Game of the Year

Well it’s that time of the year again, where we have to sort through the proverbial mountain of new games we’ve amassed throughout the last twelve months, and decide which one of them was arguably the best that we’ve played.  And we at Press X or Die have come up with our own way of doing things.

Over the next few days, we’ll each be putting forward our personal favourite games from the past 50-odd weeks and making a case as to why it should be given our Game Of The Year award. After we’ve all thrown our own nominees out there, we’re going to stir it up between ourselves and come to a decision to narrow it down to one; with each of us scrutinising the others’ choices and weighing the pros against the cons to see which one stands the tallest.  Once that’s all done, we’ll post up a collective article on the winner and why we chose it.

So stick around for a walk down memory lane of all the best games of 2010.

Update: Read the entries as they go up:

Ethan is gunning for Red Dead Redemption to take top spot.

James is thinking outside of the (cardboard) box with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Gregg hopes to sway your ‘effections’ with his bid for Mass Effect 2.

Dean goes all in on Fallout: New Vegas.

Mason puts Call of Duty: Black Ops out in the open.

David T enters the fold (it’s an origami pun, OK?!) with Heavy Rain.
