VGW’s first annual E.T. Awards (aka Worst games of 2012)

Yes, NeverDead appears on the list a few times, and yes, you’ll have to tune into the podcast to see which of these nominations we feel were truly the worst of the worst this year.

[Warning: some plot spoilers below in regards to Worst Plot Twist]
