    Congratulations Darsithis, Elyaan, and Skelington!

    Thread of the Year
    And now for the only category people care about because as you know in all awards shows, all of the categories before the final one are fillers for time, the final one is all that matters, so here are the nominees for the Best Thread of 2012!

    Congratulations to all of our winners, and our nominees because remember just being nominated is an honor, it was my pleasure to do these again for 2012 and if all goes well for me I hope to do it again next year for the best of 2013!

    And apparently the game of the year, which was an mmo, wasn't the mmo of the year.

    It's community vote based, so it doesn't really have to make sense.

    Grats to the winners and thanks to Markluzz for the competition. I actually happened to like the spoiler tags because it made this thread more interactive :P MMO-Champion Ultimate Showdown not winning best thread is a travesty. A travesty I tell you!

    I was just trying it out so it seems more like a reveal like a live awards show would do.

    Should have done commercial breaks then. Post the runner-up, wait a while, then post the winner, repeat.

    Very cool, I'm mostly possitive about the winners, The Hobbit winning Movie of the Year is awesome. I can't believe Guild Wars 2 won both Most Overrated Game and Game of the Year, that's pretty crazy. We should definatly have another thread like this next year, it was great fun to follow .

    Meh, I prefer it this way to be honest, it would be annoying if all the runner-ups and winners were posted seperately so you had to look trough them all, better to have them in one long post.

    Or maybe your opinions are just inferior?
    Jk, but democracy is democracy, it's majority rules, nothing you can do about it.
