I would have been surprised if the Walking Dead wouldn't have been the podcast goty, after all the gushing on previous podcasts. For me it's still a disappointment and I simply don't understand how there can be so many issues with corrupted savegames in the year 2012.
I'm pretty happy with XCom as GOTY, it's a great game and I can't wait to see with what Jake Solomon will come up next.
Other people's GOTY:

A lot of love for Journey out there it seems.
