The way we picked the list of games the community could vote on this year was driven by the staff. Basically there were 20 slots for games. 20 possible choices to be on the list. Each staff member nominated two games and those got put on the total list of possible games for the year. The end result for both AAA and Indie were less than ten games each. It's obvious there were fewer memorable co-op experiences this year than previous.
AAA Community Vote Winner
It was a close one but Diablo 3 edged out PAYDAY 2.
Indie Community Winner
This was another close one, but Monaco edged out Risk or Rain for the community pick.
