#5 Battlefield 3 (21 Points) (1 first-place vote)danielrbischoff loves him some goddamned Squad Rush, providing the lone first-place vote for Battlefield 3, which goes prone and sneaks into the Top 5.
#4 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (22 Points) (2 first-place votes)
Who said the Wii was dead... or like... unplugged... and maybe just used for Netflix in the bedroom? NOT ME! Totally did not say those things. The Hero of Hyrule is back this winter on Wii and GR has spoken. #4 for you, my little elf buddy guy.
#3 Batman: Arkham City (36 Points) (2 first-place votes)
Nana nana nana nana, nana nana nana nana BAH MAN! Fans of the Dark Knight have spoken; zopping and fooping the hero into the #3 spot. Touting a miles-wide open-world city, a cast of villains just as large, and the chance to play as the sexy thief Catwoman, Arkham City looks to steal gamers' hearts... and our precious rare plants!
#2 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (37 Points) (3 first-place votes)
Anthony Severino says that the final game in the Uncharted trilogy will be even better than the last two GOTY-contenders, and GR's readers are keeping their hopes high, voting this PS3-exclusive into the #2 spot.
#1 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (45 Points) (5 first-place votes)
Receiving the most points total, as well as the most first-place votes, Bethesda's upcoming, dragon-slaying, first-person hacker/slasher/caster is the title that generated the most shock toward the Nielsen poll. Skyrim showed up at an alarming 15th place among Nielsen's polled consumers - and compelling me to do this little pet project. The GR forums have had an Official Topic on Skyrim since July, so, yeahhhhh....
