The spiritual successor to Cubivore that no one asked for, but we all desperately needed.

Fun surprise, there; wish I had seen this live. This game continues to look like it's very much not my thing, but this was a good time regardless.

Ooh, Brad SHOULD do the final challenge of 3D World. That's such a fun level, I went and did it with all five characters. Hard as hell, but worth it. If nothing else, the secret worlds leading up to it are a lot of fun to play, and as an added incentive, the final Captain Toad level is up there alongside it.

No idea why they were so incredulous about Skyward Sword; Nintendo redid WW and TP already, it only made sense that they would eventually do the same for the last of that run of Zelda games. I'm surprised it's taken them this long to get it out there, honestly.

The beginning skit with Xenoblade was a pretty good Smash reveal; I figured they were making a direct sequel, with how long that went on.

Shulk continues to be one of the worst character names I can think of.

I'd say this was a return to form for GOTY, but honestly I think it was better than a lot of the older years. There was little to no dismissive attitudes from the staff, and there was a real focus on building up the games they were putting forward, rather than just cutting down the ones they opposed. That's something they've acknowledged and clearly tried to address in the past, but I'm not sure they ever really got it until this year.

I really appreciate returning to the old format as well, but I think they really could use more categories. The four days leading up to the top ten list are full of moments where they will bring up something that isn't pertinent to the category at all, and that really just goes to show that there are arguments people want to make that they have no place to do so in.

The definitely-hangs list is a great idea, but could probably be changed a bit. Don't really see any point in ranking games for that one; seems like a great place to have all the staffers "say their piece" about various games, as opposed to gumming up the works in all the categories earlier in the week. Without any...prize in mind, like getting a game on a list, it could just be a place for them all to talk about games they thought were really great that just not enough other people on staff were willing or able to back being in consideration against the other contenders. No need to pit them against others, just give folks a chance to gush.

Great job, duders. Sorry to see you go, Ben, but your last months have been fire. The Mahjong streams, Going Rogue, GOTY; stellar work, man.

Best of luck, Ben! Great job at GOTY, and great job during these last few years altogether; you'll be missed.

This opened up some wounds for me from my mom's death that I thought were farther along the healing process than they were, but I'm glad you shared it. Thank you, Alex.
