Welcome to December, duders. You survived the Fall games blitz. You survived the launch of a new console. You survived Black Friday. Did you survive the finale of The Walking Dead? Well, either way, your reward is to now debate the merits of your Game of the Year nominees with the rest of the community. Try to keep it civil. Not everyone is going to agree with you that Kinect Fun Labs: I Am Super! is the greatest thing ever made. I'm sorry. But, before you get too deep into the GOTY discussions, how about taking a look back at what happened on the site during the busy month of November.

And look at that huge cliff where video views died during the Thanksgiving break.
Number of edits made on a page may not be the best way to determine the most active wiki pages, but it's no surprise that Black Ops II would be at the top in November.
