Seems like a fine choice to me. As always, pure game design over all else.

The comments on that article are hilarious as fuck to read.

The comments are hilarious! People are idiots, the game is well worthy of GotY awards.

They got to pick up those Wii U sales somehow. :)

J/K although I personally can't stand the game at least it's not battlefield four. And then Battlefiled 4 being racist then getting banned in china.

One of the few places left that actually waits till the year is practically over before announcing the winner.

A respectable choice

From the article, succinctly summarized:

3D World is not destined to rank among my all-time favourite Mario games; it's almost too quickfire, the levels too succinctly articulated. I like it when the series stretches its legs a little and really starts to warm to a theme, as it did in the incomparable World, 64 and Galaxy. I also prefer the elastic momentum of the fully analogue controls of previous 3D Marios to the more taut eight-way directional controls used here so the game could support the Wii remote's d-pad. A fair compromise to allow easy local multiplayer, perhaps, but it still stings.

But just look at what else was compromised in Super Mario 3D World: nothing at all. Raw invention and fun, delivered at an inviolable 60 frames per second, without a single glitch, stutter or lull. In a very real sense, there's not another game released this year than can match that.

Awesome choice.I really hope the final level in the game is not brutal.

It is the best game available on any platform right now, so I am not surprised.

None of these Game Sites have made bad choices this year. then again I can't really say much about this one since I haven't played 3D World yet and can only assume it's better than 3D Land.

You know, TLOU won 99 GOTY awards, but I'll actually spend the time reading a site's like Eurogamer's opinion and take it seriously because they have earned respect over the years with consistent and quality reviews.

Agreed.

People still use VGChartz? Their sales numbers have been consistently proven wrong for the past half decade.

Mario 3D World only sold around 215k during it's first week; it would be unusual for the game to suddenly jump to a million a few weeks later; even with Christmas.

The last mario game I had a good time with was super paper mario for wii and that was mainly cause the tale was enjoyable. I even tried galaxy and that just put me to sleep.but hey congrats I guess.
