The end of the year is always a time to look back and reflect… on the best games you’ve played that year. (Personal growth? Meh. Achievements and trophies? YES.)

I'm not gonna lie, I take my games of the year list pretty seriously. So much so that we didn't have time for a guest. Instead, you get to hear Victoria mercilessly rip me for preparing way too much for the second episode of You Died, as we present our own game of the year awards -- along with a few alternative awards, like the best game to play on the toilet.

Red Dead Redemption 2 can't win that one (though if you are playing on the toilet, please tell us how), but will it beat God of War, Spider-Man and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to our little panel's top award? There's a surprise ahead... and we don't just mean wherever Victoria brings her Rubik's Cubes.

We'll be publishing this to Apple and Google's Podcast sections soon -- no really, I promise -- and I'll update this post with those links when it happens. For now, you can find the Soundcloud player embedded above or listen to it right here.
Don't forget that you can always reach out to us on Twitter! You can find me here and Victoria here. Let us know what you think, and what you'd like us to cover next!
