Voting Closes Soon - Round 2 of the Reader's Choice GOTY 2013



Papers, Please is certainly the Cinderella story of this bracket. Initially chosen as the write-in vote from the members of our Publisher's Club, the customs agent simulator faced a tough matchup against XCOM: Enemy Within in the first round before pulling out a miracle victory thanks in part to a Russian YouTuber. Now it's facing Blizzard's esports star, StarCraft 2: HotS, and doing pretty dang well, earning nearly two-thirds of the vote. Will Papers, Please win again to advance to the third round?

The results as of publishing:

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

37% (1938)

Papers, Please

62.9% (3294)

BioShock Infinite vs. Battlefield 4

There's a bit of a blowout going on in the final matchup as BioShock: Infinite is destroying Battlefield 4. I think we all know how this one is going.

The results as of publishing:

BioShock Infinite

86.4% (4610)

Battlefield 4

13.6% (728)

While I correctly guessed the final eight, it seems I was pretty off with how close some of them would be. I didn't expect GTAV and Assassins Creed to be so close, with AC in the lead. I also expected The Last of Us and Pokemon to be a little more even.

It is no surprise that Battlefield 4 is losing badly and Papers, Please was always going to beat Starcraft 2 quite badly, it is extremely popular on here after all.

A bit premature to be talking about 2103, surely?

;)
Ey, it is important we aren't late. Imagine how embarrassing that'd be, when we finally reach 2103 and the escapist does NOT have a game of the year?! It'd be horrible!

OT: I am divided on AC4 and GTA5, I am not sure which one I like the best. D:
