I don't think it is even a fair way actually. Both are structured so differently, that simply going season by season doesn't make a lot of sense. Looking at it that way, I think Game of Thrones and The Wire are much more comparable. Season 1 of Game of Thrones basically completes an entire main character's story (yes, I know there are several other "main" characters), whereas in Breaking Bad, it's just the tip of the Heisenberg.
But you're right about it not being entirely fair to vote Breaking Bad now, but it makes a lot more sense than what you said.
This i assuming I can't take into context the completion of a single character arc (the importance of which you are vastly overstating) in one show and adjust my evaluation based on that. But I have done so and therefore my point remains. But seriously are you suggesting that Game of Thrones completion of a single main character (out of a dozen of them) and merely one of 8 point of view characters represents a bigger wrapping up point when both 1st seasons end with clear carry overs to the following season?
