The 2008 GOTY GOTYs: The Best of the Best

Illustration for article titled The 2008 GOTY GOTYs: The Best of the Best

Last year Multiplayer came up with a great idea: sorting through all of the Game of the Year Awards to pick one conclusive winner. This year, I'm stealing that idea, and not making it better.


After scouring the internet for upwards of 45 minutes I managed to find 24 different publications that had finished drip-feeding their readers their particular choices for games of the year.

The result? A tie!

Adding up the list you come up with seven votes for Grand Theft Auto IV and seven votes for Fallout 3. Of course, I'm sure you can find other outlets I've overlooked to break or extend that tie.

What really matters is that Giant Bomb, Time Magazine and The New York Times agreed with us.
