iPad game of the year?

So it seemed that Magic was going to run away with it but Bastion has come out of nowhere. So what will it be?

A. Magic
B. Bastion
C. Something else out right now
D. Something yet to come out

I'm looking forward to IB Dungeons and Baldurs Gate. Should be a good 4th quarter.

As in iPad exclusive? Bastion by far. Doubt IB Dungeons will be an exclusive and Baldur's Gate I'm not to excited for.

Is this thread for ipad exclusive games like Mutant Storm, or for games that have hd versions / universal like Virtua Tennis?

Honestly magic is too much of a niche title to be GOTY. My vote would be bastion.

That's a good question, exclusive or universal. Mostly I was basing the poll on iPad Game forum topics, which mostly are probably exclusive titles.

If Baldur's Gate is the classic PC game Baldur's Gate, then yeah, that is a good candidate. If it's the spinoffs like the one on the PS2 (the one similar to Bard's Tale and MUA), then sadly no.

^I didnt mean to sound that Bard's Tale or MUA are bad games... Bard's Tale is good, but there are better games for a GotY title, and one of them in my opinion is the Classic Baldur's Gate game... It is, after all, the granddaddy to Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age.

I liked A Bard's tale a lot too, but I've read up on what Baldur's Gate EE will entail, and unless they mess it up with bugs somehow, it's definitely gonna be game of the year for me. By a long mile!

According to the developers, BG is the complete original game PLUS new areas, new characters, several features from BG2 incorporated, the same rule edition as BG2, zoom feature and some graphical enhancements.

I'm salivating just at the thought of playing this game...

The original game had hours and hours of unprecedented gameplay, and I don't think I'm gonna have time or nclination to play much else on my iPad once it's released...
