    The only reason MW2 is above all others is because it is a new released game that people remember freshly in their minds. If it was released in februari and you would ask in December 2010 it would have been on place 9.

    woah, I couldn't possibly disagree with that list more, guess it just goes to show the different direction bit-tech has been taking lately.

    How dare you put MW2 as best game of the year. It definately isn't. No dedi's, awful balance, no lean, listen servers, hacked to pieces with cheaters, etc.....

    Oh but is does have custom graphics settings and mouse and keyboard support.

    Bit-tech you make me sick.

    Ditto.
    MW I was much better than this. I also disagree with the "non appearance" of "Men of War". Warhammer is a great game, and I still have it installed in my machine. But Men of War is ten times more strategy than any other in here. GOD! You can shot the enemy vehycle in the wheels so you can repair it for you own use! Any soldier in the game can grab any kind of enemy's weapon. So if you have a machine gunner that run out of ammo, he can grab a rifle and become one rifleman. But with some penalties. You can even man AAs!

    The problem is not the list, but the voting method. I really hope that a BT staff list is on the way.

    BTW: Broken link in number 8

    The 'hardcore' PC players are a tiny percentage of MW2's market and i guess this vote by the bit tech readers reinforces that. I do find it amusing that in a vote which excluded console games the game most bit readers would classify as a console game won.

    It's funny how I hear people saying MW1 was much better than MW2 blah blah...they all seem to forget all the bugs in that game when it was first released, and some imbalances that were never fixed - like the silenced G3 knife glitch, or the chopper loops (when you get yourself killed before calling in a roflcopter, and it's kills then contribute to your new streak and get you another one in about 30 seconds) or the constant nade spam on maps like wetwork, or the proliferation of the M4/16 RDS + stopping power + deep impact combo (yawn), or the P90 run n spray noobs, or the horrible spawn system that forces everyone onto one flag in domination to be airstriked to death...

    While I do miss some aspects if dedicated servers (like being an admin and being able to kick the hackers), I don't miss the flaws with MW1, and feel that MW2 (although not quite perfectly balanced yet, 1887's or commando knife monkeys anyone?) is far more enjoyable and balanced to play. The new perk system is much better, I seldom see two people using the same kits, and the new gamemodes are very cool (demolition being my favorite). Big games I can do without as I always prefered 6v6 tactical games anyway, and the matchmaking system, although infuriating at times means that I can always just jump into a game whenever I get a chance.

    It's swings and roundabouts, and although I don't advocate that MW2 is perfect by any stretch - MW1 was not either and it seems people look back on it through rose tinted glasses...

    This list was user voted

    Also, if it's to do with the fact that it's recent then why aren't more recent games in there and why are older games in the list? Mirror's Edge, Dawn of War 2, Empire: Total War - all rank very highly. Even Batman is older than others and yet came second - by a significant margin too.

    Left 4 Dead 2 is MORE recent than Modern Warfare 2 and just as polished and good. By your logic then why isn't that number one? Why is it #3 by quite some distance?

    I've had my share of grief lately with MW2, but it honestly baffles me that you guys still don't believe that it's a very popular, actually very good game even at this point. This was a completely open, fair vote decided by you guys, not us.

    Perhaps next year BT should have a separate console and PC countdown. I can't see MW2 being many people's favourite PC game...

    This has been discussed before. We did separate console and PC ones last year and the only thing that happened was that we got less votes and people complained about having to fill in two forms. Then they complained about us having a console award when we're supposed to be a PC site. In reaction to this we did a single big GOTY award that featured only games that had seen a PC release - i.e. no console exclusives.

    It doesn't really matter though because, whether people prefer it on PC or console, it should still be representative of the average bit-tech reader (though perhaps not the average forum poster).

    People always want it to be different and always complain. You can't have it both ways.

    MW2 has a great single player, a bit re-hashed and rushed, but it was still quite the rollercoaster. I'm not surprised MW2 made it on the list either, I mean the game has the COD name attached to it, and it was a pretty decent sequel to MW1, both of which had flaws.

    The fact that Mirrors Edge made the list pretty much makes Bit-Tech a legitimate source, however I will say in defense of MW2 that it is quite polished, and although needing a patch to fix a few OP'ed weapons(and a map that is more open with less camping) it should be pretty decent.

    A good compilation seeing as there weren't as many awesome titles this year.

    As is mentioned numerous times in the article (should you choose to have a read), this list was USER VOTED. That means that you, our readers voted MW2 top - not us humble journos. Not that it's an opinion I disagree with of course.

    Sorry vocal minority, silent majority has spoken!

    That's the problem limiting to a specific platform, I think a lot of people would have voted for the games they like regardless of platform, therefore MW2 would have a lot of votes from both PC players who love it aswell as console players who love it.

    I know I voted for Batman:AA and I've only played the Xbox version, and I've only just started playing Borderlands (again on the Xbox) and would have voted for that too if I'd played it prior to voting (it really is a very good game). I've played very few PC games this year (DoW2 and Torchlight being the only 2 from the list).

    edit: link to forums doesn't take you to this thread.

    Honestly, after playing it MW2 SP was meh at best, i don't see what it is about that everyone is praising. The levels were too linear cleverly hidden tunnels. I got bored half way through the game because it was mostly run-shoot-knife repeat, just wasn't challenging at all (playing on veteran, fyi before someone claims I'm playing it on easy), just mind-numbing.

    move away from MW2 talks, not much point as it is the most played game on the planet.

    Batman AA definitely deserve to be up there, it's the best game i've ever played! a bit repetitive, but only on my second play through.

    not a fan of RPG, so didn't enjoy DoW2 a single bit. but Boarderland is pretty satisfying, once a good gun is found, otherwise it's nothing more than a RPG.

    Yes Batman was a great game, and E:TW totally deserved the award, although I'd wish it was higher, although one would sensibly argue that the game itself was(and is still) hella buggy.
