Minecraft was available for purchase in 2009! Technically, it still hasn’t been released, you just get to play it in alpha/beta for a preorder!
I don’t care. Minecraft is the Game of the Year pick. 2010 was the year of Minecraft. Duh.
Besides, this is nothing compared to when I called Oblivion GotY 2 years in a row No one read this site back then. LOL
