The people have spoken

It's getting to be that time of year where gaming publications all over the world are picking their favorite games of the year. While there still has yet to be any sort of universally recognised awards, the same handful of games generally tend to pop up on different lists and there's usually not too many surprises as to which games show up. Miiverse is continuing this trend, too, and the results of votes from users all over the world have finally been tallied.

For the Wii U games, Splatoon took number one, while Super Mario Maker took second, and Xenoblade Chronicles X took third. It really isn't much of a shock that Splatoon and Super Mario Maker were at the top, though it was a rather pleasant surprise to see Xenoblade X get rated so highly.

For 3DS games, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D took the top spot, followed by The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes at number two, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate at number 3. While it was a bit disappointing to see a remake take the number one spot - especially considering how good MH4U was - Majora's Mask 3D was pretty great. As for Tri Force Heroes, we'll just pretend that the guy who tallied the votes miscounted.
