Would someone please post the two Game of the Year lists? I listened to the podcast but didn't manage to catch the lists.

We're going to put up a big post with everyone's list, but in the meantime I'll go ahead and provide some references, here's the previous episode's lists:

~mod~
We generally don't post the full lists out in the open as the explanation of the list is part of the process for spoiler reasons - I've moved this off this episode as the post was for a different ep and posted it to the orginal episode. Thanks! - Amoebic

Metallic Child sounded interesting so I looked it up. They launched a game in 2021 where the main character is called "Rona." Kind of an unfortunate choice of a name for these times. The game does look fun, though.

I was also recently writing up my post for the community GOTY thread and I very much have the same type of reaction to It Takes Two than Glendon. It is one of the best co-op games I've ever played but the writing is absolutely awful. Last week, Lara made some interesting remarks about how Psychonauts 2 deals with the topic of consent and It Takes Two has some serious issues with that.

Great to hear Antichulius on the show! He sounds as kind as I imagined…

Lol. DC Super Hero Girls. I, too, bought that for my daughter so she can learn about crappy flight controls as so many before her have suffered through.

Also, is there any thoughts to bringing back the yearly predictions? Especially, intentionally bad/wrong ones?

It's so true. She's asked me to step in a few times on some particular segments after trying and failing for a while.

Yes! That's usually in Jan, looking mid-late in the month

The master list is live here.
