These podcasts are my favourite part of the winter break each year. Love to listen to them while I relax with some games. Cheers!

I am oddly satisfied by the list editing.

I also think this is one of very few instances where a video-specific thing doesn't alter the way the audio podcast plays. Smart move, duders! It helps viewers keep track of what's happening to the lists (always a bit of a mentally gymnastic challenge in past years) while adding something audio listeners aren't going to miss specifically.

As someone who has only just started making his way through The Witcher 3 and for whom (who?) it is the best game played this year, I was kind of disappointed by its selection as Old Game of the Year. It feels like you chose it because you were concerned about the response from the community. If you didn't play it, choose something else.

Is it the right choice? Almost certainly but I'm not here for the community's opinion. I'm here for yours.

Hello. First time visiting this site. Came here because GameSpot is becoming more and more garbagey. Would like to say that I couldn't make it through this video because of the insane amount of talking over each other. At any one point there seemed to be three people trying to say something.

@computernoises: that doesn't happen in regular podcasts too much. I haven't listened to this yet but there are some team members who will talk over each other if not reigned in.GOTY becomes a bit of a fun free for all.
