The game that's eaten most of my time this year is Black Ops - but I'm going to disqualify that as it was released at the back end of last year.
Doritos Crash Course (xblig) was fantastic fun, in multiplayer, but I've got to rule that out for the same reason - it came out in December. Still play that every couple of weeks though.
Portal 2 was an immense but short lived experience. One of the best game I've played in years - but one play-through on solo and two on co-op and the game was ready to be traded in.
Brink was great fun for even less time - a couple of days, and then the game was put aside due to terrible lag. I hear it's better (though not perfect) now, but haven't tried it since release week. I'll hopefully give it another try soon - after all, I need to get me the free DLC.
I guess Portal 2 is game of the year for me so far. The key words there are "so far" though - as we've Arkham City, Battlefield 3, and Modern Warfare 3 to come...
Portal 2! I haven't had the chance to play many new games this year, but Portal 2 was top of my list.
L.A. Noire for me. Once Team Bondi's genre piece made it into my disc drive it didn't come out til I'd made it through to the end. And I don't often do that (unless I have to for review purposes). Gripping, engrossing, inventive and cerebral...though not sure about the ending.
I've been spending an inordinate amount of time playing Terraria and Beat Hazard Ultra. Both awesome indie games for less than a tenner.
Otherwise, I've found myself defaulting to Brink. It's not perfect, not by a long shot, but it scratches the teamwork itch that I used to rely on TF2 for.
Really enjoying LA Noire
I've been playing a lot of Dawn of War 2: Retribution. Way too much.
L.A. Noire for me so far,beating Portal 2 into a very close second place. Demanded my interest from start to finish, and unlike some, I felt the end fit the overall tone set through the whole game. I must say that the rest of the games I'm looking forward to over the next few months have a LOT to live up to!
