It's time at last for our fifth annual countdown of our favorite games of the year, and this one's a whopper. Clocking in at nearly 3 1/2 hours, this episode's rotating cast of guest hosts includes Tim Turi, Brett Elston, Bob Mackey, Henry Gilbert, and Matthew Jay, who drop in to give their own two cents on our picks until we finally close it out with a look at some of your GOTYs.

This is our second-to-last show of 2017, which means it's our last chance to do something holiday-themed - so as the legendary Tim Turi joins us, let's take a look at five of the angriest, most threatening takes on Santa to ever appear in video games. Then we chat about the (re)return of Okami, news from the Game Awards, and the game-inspired cereals of your dreams.

As 2017 and its new releases begin to wind down, Henry Gilbert rejoins us to start this week's show with a topic that we somehow didn't think to do until a listener suggested it: video games that your character can play within larger video games. (We went for original ones, too, so don't be disappointed if your Yakuzas or Animal Crossings don't make an appearance.) We then flop over to the Mega Man 11 reveal, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle's Versus mode, Mario's new cereal, and the exclusive games you'd want Nintendo to steal for the Switch.

Mikel isn't here this week, and it's probably because he's playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on iOS. To commemorate that, we recount the five most important Nintendo franchises that came to other platforms with the help of special guests Matthew Jay and Wes Green. After that, we discuss a dearth of game deals, a bit of PUBG news, Battle Chef Brigade, your best bargains, and our pie-in-the-sky Switch ports!
