Polls should always have an other option as some people feel the need to list something like RE6. lol
Anyways I voted TWD, sure people think that because it was originally a downloadable title it should not have won, they also feel that a point and click adventure style game should not have won, thing is I don't care about that junk.
TWD had the best characters, best character development, best scenes and best voice acting. TWD evoked an emotional response from me that no game this year has done, it made me care about each character or in some cases really made me want them gone. lol
Some people seem to think it has to be all gameplay, so it could have a garbage story, garbage characters, garbage everything but really tight intuitive control's and that's enough for some? For me I need more, in this day and age I expect top notch voice acting, a good engrossing story, game play, good characters, and good audio, if it fails one category I won't dismiss the game, if it fails multiple I take it out of the running for my personal GOTY. The fact I got all this from a budget title that is an interactive drama is just outstanding, really came out of left field and surprised many people.

The Walking Dead, as much as I'm glad I played this, I want more to happen, I can't believe the ones who played this earlier had to keep waiting for the next episode to come out, that was really hard to do, because this game really kept making you wonder what happens next, I'm glad I played it later downlaoded all4 eps, then waited for ep 5 for at least 3 days and the wait was worth it, but I can't believe it was the last ep-.- but meh, I hope we get the next game, I really enjoyed it and that's why this became GOTY.
Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else. -anonymous
