DQXI was just so horribly disappointing. It came highly recommended, opened up with a beautiful cinematic intro, dropped you into what looked and felt like an open world kinda thing, looked and sounded gorgeous... and then I scratched the surface, and found the festering remains of a series that hasn't refreshed itself in decades.
SWH took a bit of a tumble there - what happened? That aside, not much of a year for the Moyles library either I see, bar Xenoblade. (Play2play2play2play2.)
I'm trying to think of games that might make my top ten from this year and... I dunno. I reckon it'd have to be another surprise indie gem that I don't even know exists at the moment.
