Mass Effect 3 - Controversies of 2012

My main issue with Game of Thrones is that I'm tired of A Song Of Ice And Fire as a whole. I was pretty much hooked until (major spoiler):
Jon Snow got killed. Or at least most likely killed. At that point I realized every single character I care about in the series is now actually dead. Daenerys and Tyrion are somewhat interesting, but every other plot now includes a whole bunch of people that are completely uninteresting to me. Some prince pops up out of nowhere alongside some old Hand to a long dead king? Fine. Don't care. He's probably dead in a few chapters anyway.
Anyway, I'll read book 6 when it comes, but other than that my interest level will remain low unless something spectacular happens.
Other than GoT, I also played the rather similar Of Orcs And Men, Diablo 3 and a few other new games, but nothing I was too impressed by. I mostly favor games that have a lot of RPG elements, so games like D3 and Dishonored don't actually stand much of a chance as GOTYs for me. I can't even remember the last time a non-RPG was GOTY, probably Warcraft 3 or Civilization 2 or some such thing. Transport Tycoon Deluxe back in 95 maybe?
Edit: I actually looked it up. Warcraft 3 was released in 2002, same year as Morrowind, so Morrowind is the clear winner. TTD was indeed released in 95, but the actual Transport Tycoon was released in 94, so I guess GOTY 95 was the original Command & Conquer for me. So it's 17 years ago. Not bad.
This is an interesting list by the way:
Fairly easy to spot the GOTYs. Most are pretty obvious.
