Hey everyone. We've begun posting the articles that announce the results of VGChartz's official GOTY Awards. We'll be posting 2-3 a day until the winners (and runners-up) of all 19 categories are revealed.

I'll link to each one with a post in this thread and also collect them together in this OP so you can easily find them all.

As for the methodology used for determining the winners/runners-up - it's a neat 50/50 weighting between the community and staff. The results of the community and staff polls are converted into percentages, combined, and then averaged, to give a final overall percentage.

This year's articles:
