GOTY Community Choice: Round 1 - Finish Them!
Posted on Tuesday, December 4 @ 17:00:00 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
The first half of Round 1 is over. Our nominees fought hard and scratched for your votes, but ultimately four games will move on to the next round of our Community Choice tournament. Assassin's Creed III trounced Ghost Recon: Future Soldier by 31 votes. Mass Effect 3 tore a reaper sized hole through Hotline Miami 38-11. Dishonored snuck up and stabbed Civilization V expansion Gods & Kings, defeating the PC exclusive 40-6.
The real story in the first half of Round 1 was between Borderlands 2 and Sleeping Dogs. While both games captured the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere, Gearbox Software's RPG shooter took off to an early lead in the voting. That didn't stop Sleeping Dogs from keeping in lock-step and securing the votes of grumpy old men Longo_2_guns and Green_Lantern. It was the forums that helped Square Enix's Hong Kong action game to secure a tie. Late in the voting, Canadian tall-guy Wes swooped in for the breaker: Sleeping Dogs wins!
With the first 8 nominees sorted through the first round, it's time to look to the final 8 community nominees. Remember to vote for your favorites. You don't have to have played the games to vote and you don't have to vote in all four pairings if you don't want to. Here they are:
