Ooooh shit. 
 
Man I missed a lot of stuff this year. X-COM, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Syndicate (fuckin' A cyberpunk!). Need to get on that.

FC3 BAYBEE

Whoa, surprised at how long this is.

Bigger whoa: "best CoD multiplayer has been since CoD 4"? Better than MW2? Jeff loved MW2 (rightfully so).

And Europe is sad :(

Does Jeff have the best on script persona? He seems really good at doing this type of stuff. Go listen to the Raidoman Jeff stuff.

Look at Drew in the background! Great list, Jeff.

Persona! I really want Arena :C

Jeff... I mean Hurdy Gurdy.

SYNDICATE

I respect Jeff's #1a pick.

Gotta love Drew just kickin' it in the background.

I really wish FC3 was released earlier in the year. I really came out at a not great time =\

Clearly this man is the Shaquielle O'Neal of videogames. All. Units!

Nice list Jeff! Man, I really want to play P4G, but I really dont want to pay $300 to do so. :(

Posted by Geurge

There a reason Drew is sitting in the back completely still?

Posted by Puaru

No Mass Effect makes me sad.

Posted by NoobSauceG7

So surprised to see Persona 4 Golden here! Good stuff!

Posted by EvilKatarn

"Sorry Europe."

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

Posted by WaffleConed

FUCK! IS THAT DREW CREEPIN IN THE BACK!?!?

Posted by KittyVonDoom

Pinball Arcade, Black Ops 2, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Syndicate...

My favorite list so far!

Posted by gamerpigeon

okay I'm totally putting all my chips in on this as the top 3 for Giant Bombs 2012 GOTY awards

03. Far Cry 3

02. XCOM:Enemy Unknown

01. The Walking Dead

This for me seems to be the way things will shape up.

Dub Step

is this Years True Winner

Posted by zombie2011

I would have loved if Jeff just chose P4:G as goty even though he didn't play it.

Kind of like Brad said about ME3 being awarded for the trilogy, P4:G could have been awarded for the time the guys spent with the original.

Posted by amp_1986

Cool list. I'm interested to hear the GOTY deliberations seeing as how aside from a few games there hasn't been much overlap between the individual lists so far.

Posted by Phatmac

FUCK YEAH PERSONA 4 ARENA! FUCK YEAH PERSONA 4 GOLDEN!

Posted by RetroVirus

Very glad to see Persona 4 Arena on the list; it's one of my top 10 games as well.

Posted by iodizedjoe

Honestly this is the only list I'll fucking watch for because if anyone can make these bullshit lists funny it's Jeff.

Also Vinny.

Posted by Milkman

What a weird list. I like it.

Also, I'm pretty sure everyone at Giant Bomb has a different game of the year. The final deliberations should be...interesting.

Posted by shishkebab09

Persona 4 the Golden has been out a month and I still haven't gotten to bed before 5am since its release. It is SO DAMN GOOD, even to someone who's already played through the PS2 version.

Posted by sirdesmond

Wow, I never would have expected that to be Jeff's #1 even a month ago. Craziness.

Also, I still really, really, really want to play Persona 4 (but don't think I have the time).

Posted by DazzHardy

I CALL SHENANIGANS!  
This is only a top 9, Persona 4 Arena is not a game that was released in 2012! 
*Not a bitter European Persona fan* 

Posted by Larsa

That "sorry Europe" really hurts man :(

Posted by kerse

Damn, surprising stuff. I'm real happy to see P4 Golden up there.

Posted by Mezmero

As per usual Jeff has an awesome list for GOTY. The crazy 1a twist for P4: The Golden was completely unexpected but extremely thoughtful to include. Man I love that PS2 game but I'm not going to buy a Vita just to play it again. I loved Syndicate as well Jeff but I feel bad that I purchased it after a price cut because I genuinely believe that was a $60 game. I'm becoming increasingly convinced that this was a pretty awesome year for games. Keep up the great work you guys.

Posted by Terjay

I'd really like to play Persona 4 Golden, but I have no other use for a Vita. Bummer.

Posted by madmanmaple89

Jeff liked 10 games this year? Get outta here.

No way Far Cry 3 beats TWD. Everyone but Jeff likes TWD more. Well, we don't know about Vinny but I bet he does.

Posted by Flappy

I've played a ton of P4G and I'm going to continue to do so. Looking forward to another 100+ hours of handheld gaming.

Posted by JZ

Wooooo golden!!!!!

Posted by Colourful_Hippie

Looks like Jeff is going to be a negative nancy then about the walking dead for the GoTY podcast but then again I remember him saying that he didn't finish it yet.

Given Jeff doesn't even give TWD a shout in his top 11 I have a feeling it's not going to get much traction with him.

I'm pretty surprised I haven't heard anything about Need For Speed: Most Wanted. Not even in the best-looking category. Ouch, baby. Very ouch.
