I think the writers have taken in consideration the amount of effort ArenaNet has put in to try and make GW2 standout among the other MMOs without losing too much of what is expected of the genre. I believe despite it's flaws, GW2 has pushed the genre forward. jumping puzzles, restructured skill bar, shared loot, and dynamic events in one game is a lot. I know we've seen these mechanics in other games, but not in one game. ArenaNet is pulling in ideas from other genres to make GW2 more appealing to a wider audience. I think they done that very well and deserve the praise they get for it.

As long as we're talking PC exclusives, I think GW2 handily has it. It's basically that, panda-land, diablo 3, and a bunch of decent indie titles that won't even be considered. Everything else is console port city.

Congrats to Arena Net.  In terms of value, Guild Wars 2 is the best $60 I spent in all of 2012.

Congratz to Anet!

And yes for me personal it's the best game of the year too, even with all the bugs and minor stuff I don't like. :)

:zzz: I completely disagree. It looks different... yeah. But the few pros it has are heavily outweighed by its many major flaws. GW2 doesn't deserve GOTY, instead it should be awarded... greatest "disappointment of the year."

Straight-up biased GOTY.. no doubt about it.

EDIT: I still play the game, but there's no reason it should top the other four. Err.. well I haven't played the Walking Dead series, but the other three were excellent at release..except for Mass Effect 3's use of the Origin client.
