It all comes down to this.
After nearly a year of squabbling and tears, your friends The Besties settled on their sixteen finalists for the Besties Supreme. After using your votes to build a sportsball-style bracket, your podcasting pals took to Brooklyn's Barcade to film a two-hour video spectacular to decide which game would bring home all the figurative bacon.
Today we bring you the first half of the battle, during which our top sixteen will be winnowed down to a mere eight.
Brace for impact, it's time for the world's best friends to pick the year's best game.
Get the show:
