Area Man Selects Skyrim as The Onion's Game of the YearS

The people who brought you such fantastic headlines as "Burrito Eaten As If Someone In The Room Wasn't Crying" and "Brief Reprieve From Mariah Carey's Christmas Song Comes To Resounding End" have selected their Game of The Year, and it's not ironic at all: Bethesda's Skyrim has edged out the competition to take top honors.

More specifically, the list belongs to The Onion A.V. Club, and it is a cool list with a lot of uncommon (yet deserving) choices like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and Shadows of the Damned.

A.V. Club coordinator John Teti's game of the year? You Don't Know Jack. An inspired choice, if you ask me.
