There was a tie, and there needs to be a second round of runoff voting. This time it's down to two games:
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3/XBox 360/PC)
This first “Batman Arkham” game impressed critics to the point that it received the Guiness World Record for “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever”. They weren’t joking around when they gave Batman: Arkham Asylum 91-92 review scores on Metacritic. The game has also sold over 4.3 million copies worldwide.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)
This second entry put Uncharted on the map. It received an impressive 96 on Metacritic and sold over 6 million copies.
