Get Warp Zoned!
As the year slowly winds to a close, everyone is picking their games of the year and Time Magazine is no different. The venerable newsmag always has a few surprises in their year-end top ten, but not this year. Sticking to safe subjects, they awarded spots to Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City and other games that’ll grace countless GOTY lists this month. And their number one pick went to Minecraft, which I have a feeling will be this year’s big winner.

Hit the jump for the rest of the Weekly Warp-Up.
