I'm finding this whole thread really strange. Are there really enough quality video game sites out there for people to not visit Kotaku/Polygon?
Am I an idiot for really liking those sites?
I do want to say though that Polygon's game of the year list got really fucked at the end. Dragon Age and Wolfenstein? What the fuck.
Game of the year without context will always seem weird. Look at all the guest GoTY threads here. Some of them are downright bizarre but it's a persons take on what THEY liked. The sites GoTY makes a bit more sense due to the process you can listen to them go through to arrive at.
