You haven't missed a huge amount. There are so few of us now the Game of the Year vote was hung - everything got one vote each. But we gave it to Gone Home, I think.
Also, Zanbatou is finishing 50 (fifty) games this year. Currently the over/under on him is 5 (five) games.
On topic: I haven't played anything for about a week (working late, away for weekend, ennui). I'm wondering if I'll be able to blast through Metro Last Light before Dark Souls II on Friday but probably not.
