Community Votes


The community voted on both Indie and AAA titles and in both cases the winner won by a landslide.  On the indie front, Torchlight 2 from Runic Games was the clear community favorite gathering almost 50% of the total vote.  Offering an action/RPG experience for 6 players online with plenty of style and replayability, it was easy to see why our community chose this over other greats like Orcs Must Die! 2 and Journey.


The AAA vote was even more of a landslide, with Borderlands 2 garnering almost 60% of the votes.  The game, quite simply, is damn near perfect from a co-op features perspective.  Whether you want to play online, offline, LAN, or any mix of them - Borderlands 2 supports it and supports it well.   The game is hilariously written, features a load of content, and is just damn fun.
