This is a question that is difficult to answer to. While Journey is the most praised game of this year, or atleast seems to be, P4G is the highest scoring game of this year, but does not get as much praise as Journey does.
I thought about this for awhile, but didnot come to a definite conclusion, so I wanted to share my problem with you. Which deserves the GOTY?
I added a 3rd option, Walking Dead, that won the "official" VGA goty, it came as a surprise however.
