It's based on the rotation of playing every NFC division along with the order of the standings from previous season.
So for example, last year NFC West and NFC East all played each other which explains last year's game and the reasoning for this year's game is b/c Giants and 49ers finished in 3rd place in their divisions last year.
All the other years going back to Harbaugh's first season w/ 49ers, the Giants either just happened to finish in same order in their division as 49ers or they were on that rotation of playing the NFC East.
Same reason, the Patriots, Colts and Broncos always been playing each other every single year for last 5 years: b/c they've all been in 1st place in their division each previous year.
