Hey all - I've been charged with defending the honor of Forza Horizon in a retro-active 2012 Game of the Year for the long-form gaming review website www.thewellredmage.com. As one of the very few racing fans (and Xbox owners) on the site, my choice to defend the original Forza Horizon was any easy one. It's the game that got this terrific series started, and let us tour the foothills of the Rockies in Colorado. Not only is it a viable choice for 2012's Game of the Year, but its also the game that kick started this spin-off franchise.

But here's the rub. Racing games don't get much love on our site, and folks like us are often sneered at for our love of racing and cars. The site's owner has even said he'd "Eat his hat if a racing game ever won a GoTY" on his site. For this foolishness, we need to make him eat his words (and hat) - so please take 30 seconds and let him know that racing game fans are legion, and we don't take kindly to this kind of disrespect! If we can win, I'll make sure this hat gets eaten or at least a public apology be made to those of us who love Forza and recognize its greatness within the gaming world!

Visit the site at the link below, scroll down (feel free to read about any or all the nominees, or even leave a comment) and #VoteForza !!!

Quick update: Forza Horizon is winning the poll! We're up about 12 points over Journey, and 10 over Xenoblade Chronicles. Three days of voting left... give Forza the due it deserves and VOTE!
Some of the writer's representing the other games have complained at our upsurge of our voting and lead, calling Forza Horizon a 'niche title'. OUTRAGEOUS. Let's get the win.

Last day to vote, and we're still leading by a few points in the polls (6 points up over Journey). Hopefully its enough to put us over the top, but if not... #VoteForza

Looks like Forza Horizon is a very close 2nd, and its VASTLY surpassing the 3rd.
