The problem is that I only played two games released this year, but I will answer anyway.

Most fun game: Football Manager 2005/Pro Evolution Soccer 4
Most important game: I did not play Half-Life 2, but I think that it will "change" the genre just like Half-Life did.
Best online game: Hattrick www.hattrick.org (although it was created in 1997)
Overall game: Pro Evolution Soccer 4/Football Manager 2005

Most fun game of the year ~ GIANTS: CITIZEN KABUTO
---> The gameplay is pure fun and it's got plenty of variety to it. Wonderful atmosphere and really pretty graphics. Excellent voice acting was also a big contribution to the humour in the cut scenes. (I am well aware that Giants came out 4 years ago)

Most important game of the year ~ SANDS OF TIME
---> Games like Ninja Gaiden and Tomb Raider have a LOT to learn from this one.

Overall game of the year ~ SYBERIA II
---> The best adventure game of its kind since Longest Journey!!! Combining stunning environmental graphics, wonderful music, perfect atmosphere, good voice acting, and an engaging storyline (something that lots of games today seem to lack).

Syberia is nice. But it sure isn't 'perfect'. Just another nice game.

*shrugs*

Some people might say that Relentless is just another nice game.

It all depends on how you perceive your games. Syberia 2 isn't perfect, but it's definetly light-years away from being just nice.

i just got fable, actually and i think that should be my most important game.
the overall... i think second sight had a great storyline (twas beautiful, the ending... ), but it was so short, i did it in like 10 hours!
but i haven't played much this year apart from those two and KotOR (which was also brilliant!)

anyways sorry to go on aboutmy life this year, but anyways... *ramble, ramble, ramble...*

I didn't like KoToR :/

Sure, it's pretty good for an RPG, but the plot was very plain and it really lacked character development.

I also wish it had much more adventure elements, though I know it's a Role Player.

heh yeah im a big fan of it. I didnt mention seven days cos as its a sequel to the other, if people didnt like the first wouldnt like the second.

I actually played it cos its a AGS made game, just like mine, so i play a variety of other games made with it to check whats possible to do. How you found out about that game?..

i thought it was quite cool, that you could choose whether you could be good or bad, but the combat is awful!
