One COULD make the argument that SexualLobster made an original character that makes parodies.

Congrats to the winners.
Though I am saddened that Hood Episode 4 didn't make it into the Top 5....#6 is still pretty good.

Also hoping either Abobo, Dust, or SkullGirls wins for Game Of The Year.

Thanks for mentioning Abobo's Big Adventure on Destructoid! It's an honor having our flash game just listed on there considering all the other huge multi-million dollar games that are on their Game of the Year list. Feels really good to see it on a list like that after being in development for the past 10 years :) Thanks again and good luck to all the games on there!

You guys deserve all the recognition and more. The game was just proof that you don't always need a big budget studio to churn out something with excellent gameplay and can be enjoyed by all.

Yeah but look at the shitty games we were up against:

Mass Effect 3
Journey
Dishonored
Xenoblade Chronicles
Halo 4
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Far Cry 3
Persona 4 Golden

What the fuck is a Halo? Is that some kind of Christian Bible game? Sounds shitty! Good think we beat it.
