SSB will definitely have its supporters, BUT for me the choice is clear:

MARIO KART 8

It is a glorious edition to this storied franchise (and my personal favorite). Ever since it's arrival in May, my Wii U has been getting like 98.5% of my console gaming time. Mario Kart 8 is just so darn FUN. IMHO, it has literally not only saved the Wii U, but made it extremely relevant. And that was before DLC #1, which was a true gift from the Big N.

Of course, I would be remiss not to mention my other 2 favorite GoTY, those being Bayonetta 1 and 2. I never had a chance to play the original release, but B1 is a fantastic ride from start to finish (and this from a mostly retro gamer). Bayonetta 2 is visually even more arresting, and the throttled down difficulty level certainly makes it a more enjoyable experience, one that I look forward to completing.

I've had some great times with gaming this year. So far my tops games have been Far Cry 4 which I have just finished and The Last of Us Remastered.

But this year I am going to go with Mario Kart 8. I played this game to death when it came out and have had many hours of racing with a mate when he would come to round to hang out.

Its been a bad year for me, not because the games haven't been great but because I haven't really snapped up anything new this year. So my nomination goes for the game I'm currently taking in: Far Cry 4. I loved Far Cry 3 so much that it would have been my game of 2012 if not for The Walking Dead Season 1 and Far Cry 4 is just more of the greatness that was it's predecessor.

Mario Kart 8. So beautiful. And a game I've had more fun playing with people than any other game in a long, long time.

Well I didn't get many games released this year for home consoles and the first one that popped into my head was Mario Kart 8, so I'm going with that. Not that I mind. It's easily my most played Wii U game.
