This match was hilarious in so many ways, especially when you have idiots like me picking Ike without checking to see if it was a day match. Although Ike would have lost this anyway, because day vs night isn't going to fluke a character into last place. Ike was just flat-out terrible this contest, and this match basically confirmed that.
GLaDOS may have won the poll, and easily, but the star here was Epona and T H E S T A B L E. Epona got to win a match, and then she embarrassed Ike on her way out and got to leave on a high note. You could also maaaaaaaaaaybe make the case that Epona (or even Ike) could have beaten GLaDOS 1 on 1, but more and more I'm beginning to see that 1 on 1 is a distant memory. But a guy can dream!
Lastly, it baffles me that GLaDOS did so well this year while Wheatley did so bad. I have no explanation for it, either, because I feel like both characters should have done really well. It's not like Portal 2 wasn't well-received or whatever.
