Not a real good year for me. Black Mirror 2 not really my type of game, Gray Matter okay, Sam&Max; good, Darkstar bugged, 15 Days bad, Puzzle Agent and Puzzlebots nice, Rhem 4 unfinished, Kaptain Brawen forgettable, and The Whispered World wins hands down. Smile

Gray Matter had slightly over the top atmosphere, and the magic tricks weren’t as creative as they had the potential to be, but it was nevertheless among the best 3 adventures of the year. Black Mirror 2 is pretty good game, having that Lynch-ian feel to it (though it does break apart in the final) similar to Harvester. Still, TWW was the most complete.

A good year. Lost Horizon, 999, and The Devil’s Playhouse are all very strong contenders, but I’m going with Last Window.

I only played about half the games from this year which I didn’t think was such a bad year for games but terrible for me in terms of RL events so my judgement may be impaired here in that I enjoyed the few games I actually played during that year {others played later) with Gray Matter & Black Mirror 2 sticking in my mind but my vote goes to Art of Murder 3 as it totally transported me to another place when I most needed it!

Before last month I would have had trouble deciding, with TWW probably slightly edging it. Luckily since then I played the wonderful What Makes You Tick: A Stitch in Time, which is now my favorite of 2010.

And since it’s now free, everyone should play it (including you Karlok). CPT time? The island beckons you…

Pretty strong year. Several really good games in there, but no matter how much I liked Layton, Miles Edgeworth, Gray Matter, Last Window and especially Lost Horizon, there’s one game that stands above that for me: 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. Cool

An OK year. Whispered World and Gray matter were decent story-driven games though each with its own frustrations (I didn’t find Sadwick’s voice as annoying as many people seem to have done, but I was bothered by Gray Matter’s peculiar Oxford-as-misremembered-by-an-American-Tourist and the rather disappointing magic trick mechanic). Another Professor Layton game. A more detective-flavoured Ace Attorney game. PuzzleBots had a fun sense of scale, nicely contained puzzles and charm. But my vote goes to Sam&Max; - I haven’t finished the whole season yet, but what I have played of it had the sharpest and darkest writing, most stylish graphics and most imaginative puzzles of the series.

You can always make your own poll.

Recently this poll’s content threaded way healtier with Readers “Game of the Year” List thread:Readers “Game of the Year”
so what’s the good of this re-polling except manipulating choices and messing with people’s real choices due to author’s listing?

It is certainly not random, I resent that. 
You’re right, Heavy Rain is not there and should have been.

Timovieman, could you please remove Simon 5 and replace it with Heavy Rain?

Why do you say things like that?? I don’t manipulate anything. I post long lists of games, not just twelve options for the official poll. No, not every single game released in a particular year, that would take far too much time. I remember your old polls and they were restricted to just 15 options you chose, no extra lists, so don’t tell me I’m manipulating when everybody can vote for anything they like. Would it feel better if there was no official poll and I posted just one long list?

My vote goes to Gray Matter. It`s probably my girlfriend`s all time favorite adventure game and also quite underrated Jane Jensen game.

2010 was pretty strong year with lots of enjoyable games:
2. A New Beginning
3. Sam & Max - Season 3: The Devil`s Playhouse
4. Lost Horizon
5. Black Mirror 2

I don`t know why, but I haven`t played Whispered World and it could be in top 5 too. What Makes You Tick: A Stitch in Time looks pretty interesting too, thanks Oscar!

Gak!  These remind me of how many games I own that I haven’t yet played. Frown  My vote goes to Rhem 4 for the exploration and puzzling goodness I love.

See when you compare readers own listing with polls outcome unfortunately for you coz of poll’s limitation and your listing criteria, pool may create random results. So don’t resent the randomness, pool creates itself involuntarily.

Here is an example (similar as it happened to me)
poll choice:

chrissie - 22 January 2016 06:21 AM

.. Gray Matter & Black
Mirror 2 sticking in my mind but my vote goes to Art of Murder 3

personal choice:
