Jan 4th 2012 7:03PM @The angry pro consumer gaming ga Hahaha. Skyward Sword is the epitome of videogames for idiot manchildren who need their games idiot-proofed. What a fool.
Jan 4th 2012 7:01PM @Yuglyoshi Newsflash: not everyone loved Skyward Sword or Uncharted 3.
Jan 4th 2012 7:00PM @(Unverified) Stuff like this is way more interesting than predictable consensus votes published by large websites more concerned with popularity. Here's mine:
4. El Shaddai
2. Saints Row: The Third
1. Dark Souls (by a long way)
Honorable mentions for rereleases of God Hand, Ico, SotC, MGS 2-3, RE4, etc. Some of the best games ever given new life.
Jan 4th 2012 6:53PM @(Unverified) It's really good to see others who pay attention to the mess of flaws in hyped games like Skyrim. It's pretty, but it gets extremely dumb after the first 5-10 hours of play.
Jan 4th 2012 6:47PM Not a good list. Dark Souls is #1 of the year by far, Skyrim is an overrated mess, and Portal 2 was kind of a bore compared to the original.

Aug 17th 2009 8:07PM Burnout is probably a big cause of this.
It's definitely worth pointing out that warrior tanks were still enjoying a lot of shiny new buttons and abilities at the beginning of Wrath -- Shockwave alone was enough to make me dust mine off and feel excited about warriors again. The prot tree was pretty radically altered and I think it was enough to suddenly make all these people with warrior alts want to tank.
DKs were pretty much THE overpowered tank until the 3.2 nerfs, and they still do an excellent job, but I think there were a lot of people discouraged from even finding out if they could still tank well. Admittedly, though I really enjoy tanking with my DK, now that I can faceroll 4.5k DPS or so as Blood, well... it's tough to pick, and sometimes I just wanna see pretty numbers fly. I try to remind myself that my warlock does this just fine himself, but once you get a taste for Blood... well. That, and I just enjoy the more visceral feel of melee classes.
Could just be my server (Nordrassil US), but I see paladin tanks on the rise again.
Aug 16th 2009 4:44PM Night elf mages aren't that much stranger than troll mages, IMO.
Aug 16th 2009 4:42PM It's called a Death Knight.
Aug 4th 2009 2:14AM If you intend to tank, why not roll tauren? With DG and Strangulate it's not like you'll actually need Arcane Torrent, and that Warstomp and passive stamina boost might come in handy after the nerfs DK tanks are about to receive...
