Giant Bomb reached out to director John Carpenter, who they had previously interviewed about his interest in video games, and asked for a list of his favorite games of the year. He obliged.

It's pretty interesting seeing what a very well respected and talented creator thinks of another medium, and it's really interesting that several of the games on the list— Which I haven't played and have no opinion on —weren't very well received by "video game people." I especially like the fact that Dead Space 3 made his list, since scary sci-fi monsters are something he has some first hand experience with.

It's a good list, thought I'd share.
