Don't forget Blackbay Asylum. Classic example of Vinny being very generous to a very bad game.

I also really liked Police Cop: You're Under Arrest or whatever that game was called.

I only looked at the website just now. When I saw the "Games for Change" category, I really hoped it would be for games under $5.

At least that way giving an award to the "Best Game for Change of 2014" would have made any damn sense.

Around the 4th or 5th time I died in the very first game because the platforming and level design isn't so great.

Those hot Knuckles rap songs are probably the high point of the entire franchise.

A ghost tried to approach me.

He got leery.

That is the best line. In anything.

Star Wars prequels. With Jeff and, I don't know, someone else.

Movies that are anywhere near good, especially those that aren't super serious, are basically impossible to riff on. The Rifftrax of movies like Spider-Man are not funny.

The quality of games in a year is not necessarily defined by how many obvious Game of the Year picks came out. The way I remember it, there were interesting games coming out each month, and many of them were very good.

Only AAA games had a down year. That may be an indicator of a Trend towards a New Paradigm, or it may just be rotten luck. Big games flop every year.

This might be more of an omission than a bug, but I can't see why it shouldn't work. So you know how the drop-down ToC on wiki pages has links to all the sections, with unique URLs for each? Like this:

http://www.giantbomb.com/mcdonalds-treasure-land-adventure/3030-14905/#toc-0-1

That works when navigating to the URL from a different page, but when I link the same URL within the actual page, it doesn't do anything when clicked. Example (in the second paragraph, "death threat" is linked to a different section) - I've checked with Chrome 39.0, Firefox 31.0, and IE 11.0

I couldn't find any mention of this problem, at least not recently. Bit hard to search for.

EDIT: Well now the "navigate to URL from a different page" method magically doesn't work for me anymore. But it was working, and it should be.

Don't wanna break your heart

Wanna give your heart a break

(and that is the chorus of the song)

Plus:

That has 1700 likes. Puts things in perspective.

If, hypothetically, the staff really really sucked, they would pick Destiny because it "sparked conversations" the most.

Somehow I expect them not to pick an overall Game of the Year, instead focusing more heavily on categories. If they don't expect to reach a consensus on Mordor, I think that is what happens.
