Game of the Year Award Thing 2012: Other and Game of the Year

This is it. The final episode of the Disembodied Voices Game of the Year Award Thing 2012. You can soon let out that breath you've been holding since early January, but not before two more hours of riveting entertainment that just might send chills down your spine. All the awards that couldn't find a home among previous categories congregate in the Other segment as one, big party before stepping aside for the second phase: Game of the Year itself. This intense discussion quickly begins to resemble the interrogation scene from The Dark Knight as two games in particular are grilled under the spotlight of destiny. Which game will take away this grand honor? Don't scroll down to not find out! [audio]
