Just kidding.

But man, there have been a lot of games released this year already:

I'd have to say Tomb Raider so far, with Bioshock Infinite a close second.

I was gonna wait for June!

Anyway, I have not GOTQ as the only one I've bought is Gears of War Judgment and the MP is so bad, I've not even bothered much with the campaign yet...though what I've played was fun.

I'll wait until I'm done with Bioshock: Infinite (hopefully this week) to decide, but it's between that and Tomb Raider so far.

Lego City Undercover is also getting a lot of my time, but there are little issues that keep it from being GotQ (but it's still heartily recommended).

Strangely enough: Luigis Mansion: Dark Moon.
Runner up: Bioshock: Infinite.

Biggest Disappointment: The Cave.

It's a very close call between Ni No Kuni and Tomb Raider.
   
If pressed, Ni No Kuni would likely get the nod.

Care to elaborate?

I was really looking forward to this after loving Bio 1 and 2.  After the initial wow of the visuals and story, I felt that the combat was really boring and repetitive.  I guess in Bio 1/2 I used the same plasmids, but for whatever reason I just couldn't find anything I liked in this one.  I felt like the baddies were always sniping me from every angle and I had to run and hide a lot to regen my shield.  Like someone mentioned in the other thread, I felt like I had to play to see what happened, instead of wanting to play.  I finally just turned the diff down to easy so I could finish the story.  The game just didn't click with me and since my prerelease expectations and the early reviews were off the charts, I consider this to be my biggest disappointment so far this year.

BioInf is a strong contender for best story in a game, but TR beats it for the overall package.  such a perfectly made game and I have no disappointments from it, except that I wish it had gone on longer. 

BioInf is good but I really wanted to see some of the early demo gameplay they hinted at back at E3 2011.  Elizabeth is a great character, but is more of a random buff in combat instead of a real participant.  I wanted to have her powers be grand in use and have that cost of potentially hurting her through over use.  instead, we get hooks and cover, turrets and med/salt kits.

I haven't played enough of Bioshock Infinite for it to be in the running yet, so I'd have to say Tomb Raider.  I was expecting it to be great, and it's exceeded my expectations.

I have not bought many games as they did not interest me enough to pay full or close to full price.

I haven't played a ton of games, but would have to go with Bioshock Infinite at this point.

Biggest disappointment would go to Ni No Kuni.  Man, I really wanted to like that game.

Tomb Raider.

But I'm firing up Bioshock Infinite tonight, and I'm a series fanboy. So my choice my change in a day or two.  icon_lol

I haven't played either of the big ones being mentioned (Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider) yet, but of the games I have bought so far this year I really enjoy LEGO City Undercover and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

Overall award would have to go to Planetside 2 even though it was released at the end of last year.  Tongue  I think I just passed 100 hours put into that one.

I want to play DMC, I want to play Tomb Raider, and I want to play BI.

Too bad I don't have the time at the moment. I'm hoping that crap slows down at work soon. :sigh:
