I really wish Brad fought harder for Journey. Don't get me wrong -- I love Fez and think it's completely awesome. But for those that immediately didn't "get" Fez (like me), I don't think that moment of discovery was as great. And enjoying Fez for all it's worth took a lot more work and extraneous activity. That level of satisfaction was only as great as much as the amount of work you want to put into it.
Journey, on the other hand, was an amazing experience that was equal for every single player. It offered such a unique, cohesive world that was just simply stunning. And I'm also shocked that Brad didn't mention Journey's cooperative play during the Best Downloadable Game discussion. I really think Journey's ingenious coop was a huge part on why I loved Journey so much. The anonymous figures you would come across really helped create the sense that you were a small part in something so much bigger. Such a shame that Journey couldn't make it the top 3 in a year where I think it was easily the best downloadable title.
But, whatever, Fez is fucking awesome.
