The lights are on
Our year-end top 50 list always engenders a lot of controversy and discussion amongst our readers, so we decided to sit down for a free-ranging discussion about the games we picked, and air out some of our own personal gripes about the list.
Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Matt Bertz, Matt Miller, Adam Biessener, and Andy Reiner for our special edition "Snubs and Grudges" edition podcast. If you don't agree with every selection on our list, here's some good news: neither do all of the Game Informer editors! Although we picked our list through a scientific and democratic system of bickering in a conference room, there were still some lingering disagreements among the editors -- although not as many as in year's past. We also discuss the reasoning behind some of our picks. We hope you find this an interesting look into the process of choosing a year-end Top 50 list.
This will also be the last Game Informer Show of 2012. We thank you for listening to the show, and all of your feedback through comments, email, and Twitter. Have a happy and safe holiday season.

Alright podcast time.
Let the games begin!
What a fantastic show! Here's to another year of amazing ones in 2013! =)
This is going to be fun
"EA really cares. They shelled out big bucks for that one" - I want an audio clip of that for every time people complain about paying off reviewers.
Great episode! As always, it was funny and informative. :)
Wow what a great episode. I love hearing how choosing between all these games goes down. I know it was prolly hell for a few days but its heaven when i get the magazine :)
That was great. Thanks GI crew for another year of awesome podcasts.
