End of the year snuck up on me, and I just noticed we don't have a thread for this yet so maybe it snuck up on others too. I copied last year's GOTY post below. I'm in the middle of two great 2012 games right now and want to finish them before weighing in with my picks (The Walking Dead and the much cheerier Borderlands 2). Mainstream GOTYs have been all over the place this year, and my experience has been that there isn't 1 amazing game that blew away a majority of gamers in 2012.
Reply with the following:
GOTY: Pretty self explanatory. Any game in any genre that came out this year is eligible, and if something came out late December last year that can count that to just avoid any questionable situations.
GOTY Runner-Up: The second/third best game you played this year. This is for everyone who loved too many games to list only one.
Anti GOTY: The worst game you played this year. Doesn't necessarily have to be a bad game either.
Anti GOTY Runner-Up: The second/third worst games this year. For those of us who want to dishonor even more games for being crappy!
Anything Else: Want to add your own category? Go right ahead! Anything from "GOTY that didn't come out this year" to "Most Surprising/Disappointing" is up for grabs and makes for a more interesting read.
The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.
