Giant Bomb Game of the Year Funstravaganza Threadtacular

edited December 2015 in Social Entropy++
We are less than a hour away from the event of the year; 8 grown men sitting around a table and arguing about videogames into microphones for nearly 20 hours. REMEMBER TO PUT EACH DAYS EVENTS INTO SPOILERS, PLEASE!


Let's take a look at our participants

Giant Bomb West
maxresdefault.jpg
Jeff Gerstmann
Will Jeff be able to find love in his heart for Just Cause 3? Will he be able to overlook MGSV's terrible post-release support? Or will he put everything on Super Mario Maker?

Brad Shoemaker
Will Brad push for Destiny: The Taken King to be on the list? Will we hear the dread filibradster to keep Super Mario Maker from #1? Will he put DOTA2 as #1 again?

prUNUx7.png
"Dirty" Dan Ryckert
Will Dan be torn between his lifelong love of Metal Gear and his new flame, Super Mario Maker? Can he choose a winner, or will he be lost to indecision?

Drew Scanlon
Metal Gear Scanlon's own Drew Scanlon. Has he played enough MGSV to put his chips behind it? Or will another game find his fancy?

2743263-jasappointed.jpg
Jason Oestreicher
Resident fighting game expert and newly proud father (again) this year, Jason may not have had as much time to play games has he has still put his time in the trenches and will hopefully provide a cooler head. Or at least someone to puch Dan if he gets out of line.


Giant Bomb East

Vinny Caravella
Forever short on time, Vinny none-the-less is a valuable member in that he's probably the closest thing we have to a referee in recent years, managing to end a fillibradster last year.

2186920-alex_shop_episode_2.jpg
Alex Navarro
The Wolf himself, Alex has made a name for himself reviewing some of the worst dross in videogames, and will be a valuable resource for when the podcast turns its gaze towards the less savory entries on the battlefield.

Austin Walker i.e. Professor Videogames
Newcomer Austin Walker has the potential to shake things up this year, dropping knowledge and truth. But will he be able to defeat the likes of Ignorance and Obstinance? (You know who you are.)

    Well this is going to go fast.

    Hence why we got permission to put it into a separate thread rather than gunk up the podcasts thread.

    I hope Brad does try to get Taken King on the list, because it's great.

    2 hours of Dan and Jeff explaining why Super Mario Maker is the better than Fallout 4 and Phantom Pain

    Don't expect to see anyone fighting too hard for Fallout 4

    Austin seems to be the only one who is really enthusiastic about it, and I don't know if he's enthusiastic about the game or his dope basketball court more

    Of course I've never actually played it due to it refusing to launch on my computer so who know!

    I can see it at 5. Otherwise only thing I'm sure is at the top are MGS, Mario, and Witcher.

    I'm going to be a bit surprised with Witcher makes it on the top five considering how down everyone was on it.

    I'm really doubtful on the witcher being even in the top 10. 2 to 5

    My guess:
    10) Destiny: The Taken King
    9) Until Dawn
    8) Undertale
    7) Fallout 4
    6) Dying Light
    5) Splatoon
    4) Rise of the Tomb Raider
    3) Rocket League
    2) Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
    1) Super Mario Maker

    I don't see Undertale getting higher than 8

    If I had to guess, I'd put it in the #10 spot

    I could see that

    Vinny, Dan and Brad all really liked Dying Light when it came out though

    Not sure if they'll remember it much
