    Bored, so here's my thoughts.

    GotY: I don't know. It'll probably go to GTAV (which I don't want it to) but none of the other candidates really seem worthy. Give it to Super Mario 3D World, just to mess with people's heads.
    Studio: NONE OF THEM.
    Most Anticipated: South Park, zoddammit.
    Best Shooter: -sigh- Metro: Last Light.
    Best Indie: This one's hard. The Stanley Parable had the best story, but Papers, Please had that addictive quality... gah! TSP.
    Action/Adventure: I had the most fun with Tomb Raider, so it gets my vote.
    Sports: Man, f--k sports games.
    RPG: Ni No Kuni. Everything else is a bloody sequel.
    Fighting: Don't like the genre, couldn't care less.
    Driving: Ditto.
    DLC: Far Cry: Blood Dragon. A game made because people wanted to make it - not for money, but because it was an awesome idea and they wanted to do it. It shows.
    XBox: Really? Shouldn't multi-platform games be excluded? 'cause I'm going Tomb Raider again.
    PS3: ...and again.
    Nintendo: Rayman Legends. Mario doesn't count 'cause it's not out yet. But even if it was... it's 'freakin RAYMAN.
    PC: Papers, Please. Just so I've voted for each once.
    Handheld: Tearaway. Never heard of it, but I don't care - it's not a freakin' sequel.
    Casual: Plants vs. Zombies 2. Because it's the only one on a bloody phone.
    Voice Actor: Troy Baker. For nailing the Joker. See this video:

    Voice Actress: Courtnee Draper. Camilla comes in close though!
    Soundtrack: Bioshock Infinite
    Best Song: A.D.H.D.
