To be fair though, INSM's was funny. Alchemistrpm's was downright f*cking hilarious.

I don't see why a thread was needed, I thought this was taken for granted.
Of course people are overreacting, this is the internet after all

4th thread on the topic! I claim dibs on the first one

Yeah, people are overeacting, its a trend here.

People post things, other people get really mad/upset/disturbed = circle of TA's forum life! (cue lion king theme song!)

If by "overreacting to GotY" we mean overreacting to Aralon, then yes, somewhat.

And yes, this is teh interwebz people. Where the knee-jerk reactionary has equal say-so to those capable of coherent discourse. Some people are afraid to hear criticism of their favorite game. Such are the forums, anywhere you go.

One of those threads was a spoof. Give you a hint - the one that you copied the poll from.

It uhm, let's see, how do you say this tactfully, was a reaction to the overreactions and actually lightened the mood of all these threads a bit. Funnier than the OP (sorry IMNS not stealing your thunder) were the people who took it seriously.

So that logically just means that a thread about a funny thread (with a copy cat poll no less) is the funniest!

Not really - people should laugh if they don't agree with all these SUBJECTIVE opinions rather than make polls and threads and try to discount articles.

At first I was bewildered at why someone thought their opinion mattered more than someone else's and then suddenly it exploded into comedy. It's the only way to look at it at this point!

And did anyone notice it is the "unofficial" game of the year? Perhaps the REAL game of the year has yet to be announced? (oh no - here we go again)
