Indie gem Papers, Please took out StarCraft, and squares off against Bioshock Infinite in Round 3.
And then there were four. Round 3 of the Reader's Choice Game of the Year will decide who faces off in the final round. Will the underdog Papers, Please come out on top, or will Bioshock Infinite finally take down the immigration simulation? The Last of Us soundly defeated Pokemon X&Y in Round 2, but does it have what it takes to take down its swashbuckling Round 3 competitor, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag?
Round 3 matches are:
Papers, Please vs Bioshock Infinite
One document simulator and one epic escort quest enter Round 3, but only one of them will make it to the final round of voting. Will the glorious nation of Arstotzka rally enough support, or will the residents of Columbia garner the necessary votes to move on to Round 4?
The Last of Us vs Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Do you like swashbuckling and plundering on the high seas, or are you more of a cross-country post-apocalyptic adventure person? Do you like hardened pirates, or do you prefer to play characters you can relate to? Black Flag took down GTA V in the last round, but you'll have to decide whether its run ends there.
Are you ready to vote? Just head to the official bracket page, and make your choices. Stay tuned for the final round, and the Reader's Choice for GotY 2013! Voting ends Tuesday, December 24th at 11:59pm EST, so you have seven days to rally your friends to vote for the game you think should be The Escapist's Reader's Choice Game of the Year 2013!
