    Game of the Year (Console): Shovel Knight
    One Paragraph Explanation:
    It is, in my eyes, a perfect game. The controls are tight, the writing is funny, the levels are creative, the graphics are simple but not limited by their 8-bit style, all of the songs get stuck in your head... and it's short. This is a good thing - upon beating it, I wanted to play it again. Heck, I wanna play it right now. And the free DLC coming later is awesome too!

    Game of the Year (Handheld): The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    One Paragraph Explanation:
    This game starts off the complete opposite of 3D Zelda's - you are dropped into a world with barely a tutorial and told to adventure. This is what I've always wanted, really. It's old and new in complete harmony. I can only hope Zelda U follows suit.

    Game of the Year (PC): Dynasty Warriors 8: Extreme Legends Complete Edition
    One Paragraph Explanation:
    This one's a bit weird cause I don't PC game really at all. This one I did play at work quite a bit and man was it fun. There's a primal joy to just ripping through thousands with a fan or a cute anime girl throwing boats at people. If not for the release date being pushed back, however, this one would go to Dragon Age: Inquisition. I played that at work as well, and while I can't say anything about it specifically, I will say it's one of the most amazing games I've ever played. Pick it up when you can.
