Funny how I haven't bought any of those "game of the year" and I'm a decent gamer.

None of these games deserve a "GOTY" title.

Journey won IGN GOTY. Right Choice. It's what people loved about TWD x 1000000

Ya, I would say about 2-3 hrs/episode is about right.

It's a breath of fresh air with good story telling, everyone loves the show and zombies are insanely popular, etc.

Exactly what I'm thinking. There are way too many movies, tv shows, and games about zombies out right now they just need to stop it. Seriously companies just STAHP IT!

I had never watched or played a zombie show/game before I played TWD episode 1. Since then I finished the game and watched all the episodes of the TV show. I still have no interest in zombie stuff though. The game is great (even if I did not vote for it), and well worth playing - zombies or not.

A 2 hour long indie game with minimal game play winning GOTY awards speaks to just how bad the year was.

I personally had the most fun with Halo 4, although I would also make a shout out to Crusader Kings 2. That game is epic.

About Journey..............it may be art to some, but I don't get exactly how it's a "game." I feel the GOTYs given to it is more of a statement about gaming itself than it is a genuine choice.
