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)

Were it so easy

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:
