@zevvion: Nah, Jeff wanted to put it on there to thumb his nose at this year's games. Nothing more.
Don't pretend you know what Jeff likes better than he does. He played an extreme amount of Destiny, considering he almost never plays games after he beats them. He's still playing it. He liked it better than most of the games on the list.
I'm pretty sure Jeff directly said on the GotY podcast that putting Destiny in the top 10 would be a fitting commentary on 2014's lackluster games. I think his exact words were "let's do this dark deed". He also played an extreme amount of WWE Supercard and he admits that game is trash too.
Yeah. He said as much.
Nah, he specifically said that he was not supporting Destiny at 10 as a statement, but that by Destiny being in the top 10 it was a statement in and of itself. It made a statement by being at number 10 - it wasn't a statement in and of itself.
Also I love the GOTY podcast for their entertainment value, which in my opinion is high, and don't ever mind much about what is included. I do remember being kinda pissed when they chose GTA IV over MGS4 though...
