There are many qualities necessary for a game to qualify as one well-worth playing or a heralded ‘must-have’: its graphics, plot, music, not forgetting the all-important gameplay. A good game can do one of these partially well, a great game should arguably do this and more, potentially excelling or doing that which few others have.… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Sonic Generations
With all of the high profile titles that released throughout this year, and 2011 coming to a close, it’s easy to forget that Dead Space 2 came out in January. The astounding volume of games has made it feel like ages since players stepped into the boots of Isaac Clarke, so conversations often turn to… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Dead Space 2
As the year now draws to a close, I’m forced (through the use of whips and canes) to choose my Game of the Year. After much thought and the sacrifice of two hens to the gods of decision-making, I can think of no better game to receive my nomination than The Witcher 2.
A clarion blast of magnificence!
It’s that time of year again, folks. Twelve months have passed. Hundreds of games have been released. But which of the cream of the crop will become the Press X or Die Game of the Year 2011? There’s only one way to find out.
All our individual nominations for Game of the Year are in. You’ve read our views on and reasoning for each of these titles. In the background, we have wrestled, wrangled and had a vote on which game gets our collective stamp of approval as Game of the Year. And this year, that game is…after the… Continue reading The Press X or Die Game of the Year 2010
The choice for me was hard, there’s many games I’ve played this year all great in their own way, Mass Effect 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Red Dead Redemption to name a few but after thinking about it for a while, I finally decided on Heavy Rain.
I’ll be honest here. Unlike a few of the other editors who had an easy time choosing their GOTY, this was a very tough decision for me. So much so that I considered not writing a piece and am still not sure this is the right pick. That’s not to say that Black Ops isn’t… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Call of Duty: Black Ops
After a good week of thinking it through between Mass Effect 2 and New Vegas, I settled on the latter as my Game of the Year. They’re both very good games (which is why they were both possible options) but, on reflection, I realised that Mass Effect 2 had a bit too many issues… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Fallout New Vegas
I can’t really say this was a difficult choice. I’ve played a fair few games this year, but nothing was able to top a release seen in its very first month. While I absolutely loved GTA IV, I couldn’t help feeling disappointed with Red Dead Redemption. And even though Rock Band 2 is one… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Mass Effect 2
While some of the others have sounded off on their nominations for our Press X Or Die Game Of The Year, I find myself next up in the panel of judges. And while my choice of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will have some of you baffled, others will see that in a grander scheme… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Metal Gear Solid – Peace Walker
I’m going to be honest, this wasn’t even a contest. The only other games I even considered putting forward were Fallout: New Vegas and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and that was for all of about 30 seconds. From the moment I heard “open world cowboy game” there really could be no doubt what my favorite game… Continue reading My Game of the Year: Red Dead Redemption
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… Continue reading PXoD Game of the Year
A surprise hit from last year, Gearbox Software’s Borderlands launched its Game Of The Year Edition today, but not without its fair share of problems and issues.
