I pick the vastly underrated Mark of Kri.

Why?
Just because it is cool and no one else will :P

no, GTA3 was amazing when it came out last year. no one had ever seen a 3d game with such freedom and originality then. Vice City is good, but not game of the year worthy.

Eww. TS2 is mediocre at best, IMO.
Timesplitters 2 rocks! What the hell are you shooting up in your veins? :wink:
My vote for Game of the Year: Timesplitters 2.

I find Timesplitters 2 's gameplay ... Pretty meh. Nothing out of the ordinary to me..

And I think Doom 3 will be better on the computer, while Halo 2 is better on the box ...

I'm with Jeeba as well, though I've never played or even seen Halo. But I must because I haven't done anything stalker-ish to Jeeba lately and I don't want you people to think I'm slacking.

So the game of the year is Mar... err... Halo!!! HALO IS GAME OF YEAR!!! YAY!!! HOORAY!!! :D

Mafia for PC. One of the best games I've ever played. If you haven't played it I highly reccomend buying it.

I am half tempted to say Ikaruga. Why? Because I just flat out do not like shooters, and the only shooter I've ever remotely like was Lifeforce for NES. Yet, for some unexplainable reason, I cannot put this game down. It is way too addictive for my own good. :wink:

I am also half tempted to say Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island. It is as good now as it was back in the day and still stands as one of my all time favorite SNES games. However, since it is a mere port from the SNES game, I don't feel it's right to put it down as a game of 2002 since it was technically released a long time ago.

In the end, though, I'm going to have to pick Kingdom Hearts. I've enjoyed this game so much, and am already working on my third time through the game. It's just a masterpiece in so many ways. I still can't believe Squaresoft did such a flawless job of combining characters and putting them together in such an interesting way. This was no small feat, and for them to pull it off so well deserves my vote for game of 2002.

BTW, I noticed people voting for Halo, yet didn't it come out in 2001?

I would have to say Animal Crossing, because the game stands in a league of its own. The game was brilliantly developed by Nintendo.
