      In which we also learn how Chatty's vote affected the staff list. Thank you all for participating! See you in 2015!

        Can't this be an article instead?

        The impact was fairly minor if it only switched Shadow of Mordor and Super Smash Bros around.

          I wouldn't say that. The way our points-system works, it usually takes a high vote like someone's #1 spot to impact the overall results. Shadow of Mordor was Chatty's #1, which gave it a considerable bump. Considering how big the staff is this year, one vote making any kind of difference is considerable, much less changing the make-up of our top-three.

          Chatty's vote also solidified some spots that were much closer races before, namely Dragon Age and South Park.

      Google is paying 75$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. On Sunday I bought themselves a Alfa Romeo from having made $5637 this month. Useful

      Just finished listening and, hell, the staff really didn't like South Park in there. Time to usurp.

        I think Steven was grumpier about that than most of us, and mostly because of Wasteland 2. I actually liked South Park, and it landed on the staff list in a similar spot as on my own list, I think.

          I am a huge Fallout fan and Wasteland 2 simply did not grow on me. I have to give another try but South Park was enjoyable from beginning to end.
