Game of the Year Announced, 2008 Pretty Much Over

That's right, we've come to the end of the road and announced our final picks for this year's awards.

Elevator Action wins again! Game of the Year for all eternity!
Elevator Action wins again! Game of the Year for all eternity!
Another reminder for those of you living a homepage-less lifestyle. As of noon today, we have announced our winners in these final Game of the Year categories:

  • Best Product From Someone We All Used to Work With
  • "Game" of the Year
  • 2008's 2007 Game of the Year
  • Game of the Year

In addition, the staff picks section has been updated to include my Top 10 list, as well as Ryan's. Brad and Vinny have lists, as well, but Brad just sent me a text message saying that the Internet is out in whatever backwoods part of the country he's visiting, and Vinny's probably too busy figuring out the best way to put chinese food on top of pizza. But they'll go up before too long here.

Also, don't forget, our podcast this week is the entirety of our deliberations for our overall Game of the Year. If you want to listen to that in its purest state, maybe you might want to avoid the final page of the text feature.

That about wraps it up for us here at Giant Bomb. We'll have a few more reviews (Crash Commando is kind of awesome) and some other stories coming along this week, but with the game industry essentially shutting down for this holiday period, there won't be too much to report. We'll be back in full force in 2009. I hope that 2008 was as good to you as it was to us, but either way, let's all strive to ensure that 2009 is even better. Thanks for making our crazy website dreams a crazy website reality.
