After some technical difficulties we are back and ready to talk about the year's best and worst video games, as presented by our good friends at giantbomb.com

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG_8XHk5JDk

We have 100 pages to talk about GOTY stuff or whatever but after that the thread is going back in the box again till who knows when. So enjoy while you can and keep your internet rap beef to a minimum.

    Apparently there was some miscommunication as to whether or not a Giant Bomb thread was allowed again at first but those issues seem to have been settled.

    I've absolutely loved the GOTY videos so far. Also ranting Jeff is the best Jeff.

    my goty is *insert 2013 title*

    but actually my favourite game I played this year was Super Metroid and I'm not 100% sure what 2014 releases I played I would have to look

    I think today's Recap skits were the best since day 1

    I could watch Brad eat that green forever

    If anything his problem is that he misspelled WWE Supercard so egregiously.

    I have purchased Bayonetta 2 (and also 1 by default)

    I'm gonna play 1 first but we will see how high this will rank in my GotY

    Could it dethrone Dragon Age???

    Dragon Age is a game I feel weirdly about because if I were to make a general top 10 list, it would place very near to the top for this year.

    But I don't think I would place it very highly in any individual category.

    It's definitely a game that is greater than the sum of its parts.

    I haven't seen or heard anything regarding DA on any of the goty cast/personal goty lists. maybe because it was broken on a platform, has 2004 mmo quest design, and awful combat.

    I think the main thing with DAI is that it came out at a bad time for considering a 50+ hour game for GotY

    Then you did this to yourself.

    I could have told you what the top 2 would be months ago.

    Shoemaker as an entity was entirely subsumed into hegemonic swarm that is DOTA2 months ago, anything it mentions that is not DOTA2 is simply a smokescreen to lower your defences

    Bayonetta 2 is sounding like it might be GOTY over Mordor and that's great

    what is with alex and brad insisting that mario kart's framerate is bad

    4 player splitscreen has always been 30, and it's still unbroken 30
