Are you looking for Zachnorn's B8 Contest that ran from 2007 to 2009? See Game of the Year (Zachnorn's contest). There's also TimJab's version from 2010: Game of the Year (TimJab's contest)

Game of the Year awards are handed out by a number of gaming publications and websites each January, and GameFAQs is no exception. There has been a user-voted GotY handed out each year since 2001 in a series of main page polls whose results can be seen below.

(There was no poll held in 2000, so the win was awarded to Crono Cross. Probably a fair decision, as it dominated for most FAQ hits that year.)
