Nintendo’s Super Mario 3D World for Wii has won Game of the Year from a major outlet, that being Eurogamer. Super Mario 3D World is IMO the best Mario game in years, up with the likes of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy. Lots of people have been complaining about Eurogamer’s selection online since this was announced, but it definitely is deserving of the award IMO. We will be announcing our picks for Game of the Year per platform and overall later this week.
