With that being said, my vote for game of the year is orange box.

But that isn't a game, that is two games and an expansion that just came in one box. You have to consider each game seperately.  Or I'll take all the best games of this year, stick them in my Sim City Societies case and declare the GOTY.

does no one remember supcom, company of heroes or c&c3?

You right, wow I forgot those came out this year, it feels like it was longer.  C&C 3 was entertaining, but I didn't like it enough for GOTY. I really didn't like Company of Heroes.. I don't know why. And I've given Chris Taylor an earful enough times on why I don't like SupCom.

Crysis sold 80,000 units.  I'm not exactly sure anyone will be willing to front the money for a second title in the series.

Game developers need to stop planning for trilogies.  It's arrogant to believe that your game will be well received or successful enough to warrant a second.

With that being said, my vote for game of the year is orange box.

I'm not sure that the future of the crysis ip is linked with it sales figures, lets not forget that crytek are in the business of selling their 3d engine and thats where their profits are going to come from, and in that respect Cysis has done its job, it kept crytek in the spotlight throughout its development and showcased the features of the engine. If sales of the engine are good then it makes sense to continue the crysis games as they would prolong interest in the technology behind the game.

Anyway having said that i have to say that crysis is my game of the year. I normally play roleplays more than fps games and so would normally have picked oblivion, however crysis is the first fps since undying that has had me totally engrossed. it is spectacular, and despite the less than perfect AI it is both enjoyable and challenging.

Its hard to pick GOTY, if im counting PC only then Portal, TF2, Crysis, World In Conflict, COH: Opposing Front, and a coupe other are nominees. If its all systems, then... then the list is to long :)

Crysis was..ok in my opinion. It was insanely hard at some places though.

My personal GOTY would have to go to viva pinata, its a 2007 PC release, but was released in 2006 on the box, so its prolly not eligible, but it was so fresh and different, and its just such a nice relaxed pace of game comparred to everything else out there, where you must kill 50 things per minute or bust, VP took me completely by surprise :)

While spore will be good and all in the end it will prolly be the same thing all over again (another spider bipedal with his tongue as hand ?) and the same procederly generated planet and universe. All the basic blocks are the same so in the end it will be boring.

Mass Effect on the other hand has a story, has something to tell. It's like a good book that you write yourself! I love that more then anything else.

I think a game that doesn't have a story, like Spore, doesn't get boring nearly as fast as a game that does have a story, since a game with story will be the same every time you play it. Multiple endings might postpone the boredom somewhat, but not much. If there isn't any story, like in Spore or The Sims, you can tell your own stories, of which there is a near infinite amount. But to each their own, I guess. :)

Mass Effect :)

And to the other poster above: I'm a good visualizer but a bad story teller, so closed looped story games are better for me (or books) :)
