Heh, we each sent Richard our Top 3 games in a separate e-mail; no one saw anyone else's picks. It just so happened that we all picked Walking Dead as our favorite. Each pick is assigned a point value (3 for the top pick, 2 for second, 1 for third) and the game with the highest combined score wins GOTY. No conspiracy here, just math. It's the same brilliant system that brought you Dead Island in 2011.

And since I'm not posting an official 2012 top ten anywhere else, I offer my list to you, my dear friends....

10. Super Hexagon
9. FTL
8. Asura's Wrath
7. TERA
6. Diablo III
5. Mists of Pandaria
4. XCOM Enemy Unknown
3. Borderlands 2
2. Mass Effect 3
1. The Walking Dead

Also we cut the "Nail in the Coffin" award before showtime; this is awarded to the franchise most in need of a break after its 2012 release -- my nominee was "NEW Super Mario Bros." (and not Assassin's Creed, since Ubisoft clearly hasn't listened to me the last couple years....)
