I had the most fun with x-com by far. I liked Mass Effect 3, but Mass Effect 2 ruined that series for me because of just how awesome it was.

Its still a great game refined in nearly everway, plus the multiplayer is pretty fun and Leviathan was good DLC.

I didn't have as much issue with the story as most people mainly because I saw it coming.

I could see BL2 but to some extent its just BL with better dialogue, much much more refined gameplay(which isn't easy to do), improved graphics especially on the PC end of things.

If Diablo 3 wins anything besides making a lot of money on paypal award I'll throw my computer off the golden gate bridge.

I'd be okay with that, so long as they aren't all genre based (best FPS, best RPG, best etc etc etc).

Should be best story, best gameplay mechanics, best graphics, best sound track. Stuff like that.

But I'm not gonna run the polls either so whatever you guys wanna do

Well from this year, I only played The Walking Dead, Civ 5 Gods and Kings and Halo 4.

So my vote goes for The Walking Dead game.

Even though it was the only game I bought this year, I thought Sleeping Dogs were awesome.

It was a bit too short unfortunately IMO, but still is awesome nonetheless.

I dare anyone who has played Walking Dead to argue why it isnt GOTY. Telltale did the impossible IMO, a GOTY caliber episodic game. Not only the GOTY but one of the few games that actually sticks with you long after you completed it.

It's barely a game. Should've just made it one of those choose-your-own-adventure books instead.

Sort of sad seeing something that derives virtually none of its entertainment from game play winning a "game" of the year award.

My favourites for Xbox 360:

-The Walking Dead, the Game (I absolutely loved it and purchased and played every episode almost on release date) (Nice different game feeling around all these shooter games etc)

-XCOM Enemy Unknown (Another different game experience in xbox)

December 25th 2012 will be the 30th anniversary of my first console.

Weakest year ever overall.

For a lot of reasons I hope a quality indie game wins goty.

By the way, the 10th annual VGA is on in about 15 minutes, you can watch it live via Xbox Live.

Edit: seems the actual show won't start until an hour alter, don't know what they're showing until then.
