Twinfinite writes, "If you notice, we had a lot of differing top 5 lists all this week counting down to this moment. We wanted to have a special, Twinfinite-wide game of the year that we all voted on so we, too, could take part in the award ceremonies that every gaming site is doing around this time. We narrowed down from about 10 games to three: Super Mario 3D World, BioShock Infinite, and The Last of Us. We were pretty much deadlocked, with BioShock Infinite being the early favorite, followed by The Last of Us as the late gainer. Super Mario 3D World emerged as a dark horse candidate, and in the end we had three games neck and neck and were faced with a decision."
