As some of our users may have noticed, late last week resulted in a huge spike in the popularity of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings as seen on our Top 10 Most Nominated Games E3 page. This was primarily accomplished through a legitimate grassroots campaign on several large international gaming Web sites, but as part of our standard review process, we discovered evidence that some ballot stuffing was occurring by a handful of dedicated fans. We have since taken steps to remove these fraudulent nominations and will proceed with our Best of E3 Awards.
@lyricalsoldierb that's a common misconception and very exaggerated. all you need is a 9800GTX card which is less than 150$ to put in a less than 2 - 3 years old computer, and you are set for pretty much every game released this year. you are talking about those few that play games on a 50 inch HD TV with 3k up resolution and sets every graphics setting on maximum. i bought my laptop with a 8800GTS for a thousand dollars 2 years ago and i can still put everything on high on most games released this year. and not to mention that desktops are much cheaper
Much as I think Starcraft 2 is looking excellent it's a little like nominating Canada as best team at the World Cup.
everybody loves PC Games!! they always become big hit!! than Console titles!! Fallout series! Elder Scrolls! GTA! Crysis! Prince Of Persia! Mafia! Call Of Duty! Left4Dead! Portal! etc! etc! :D come on!! where's Half Life 3 / Diablo 3!! :)
Don't like how you setup your voting, make sure next time only one vote for each user or don't bother setting up voting. Why don't you post how many votes were deleted from each game?
If pc gaming does surpass home consoles on a financial scale it's probably because a computer cost near a thousand dollars and you gotta upgrade it every six months just to keep up with the games. unfortunately where i come from most people don't even have a computer more less one fast enough to run the latest games. so i guess you could say i'm a product of my environment.....cant wait to see how many negatives i get on this one.
dolek_17 Yeah right, EA bribed gamespot (nonsense, everyone knows that Bioware is a giant among game companies), Star Wars TOR is more than worthy to be #1
suboXeros: You're lame as hell if you think GOW 3 should be number 1. Its nothing but an unoriginal sequal. KOTOR more than deserves the number 1. I had fun with the first GOW. Kinda sucks playing the same game twice more.
@ lyricalsoldierb Maybe you live in a cave or something but so that you know the pc gaming industry is equally worth as the console ones and in some cases (not always ) surpasses it
@ lyricalsoldierb Zelda would be #1 if they would quit shoving this motion control stuff down our throats and give us the option to play zelda with a classic controller :)
I think it's hilarious that the top two nominated games are both on pc despite the fact that i haven't seen somebody play a pc game (short of WoW) in a llllooooonnnnngggggg time. Zelda should be number one and the fact that it isn't almost makes me not even wanna play videogames anymore.....what's happening to us people? And that's cause i'm PS3 all the way, but have no problem admitting what game everyone should be wanting to play. I don't even have a Wii....but come on....its zelda...so i'm sure as hell gonna buy one now.
WTF??.....How Come Star Wars:Old Rep. is the no. 1, there is better games in the list deserves to be no. 1. and they gave GoW 3 a late position............ WTF??...........
i don't believe it, Witcher 2 is actually on the list, i mean the game is great and all, i never thought it would have such a massive public acknowledgment.
Too many great games. In my opinion, Gears of War is always the best. And I'll choose GoW3! Dead Space 2, Crysis 2 and XCOM is impressive, too. But, I think Gamespot's Game of the Show will be: 1. Portal 2. 2. Skyward Sword. 3. Star Wars: The Old Republic(?!?!) 3DS owned Best Tech, huh?
Where's Portal 2? Come on guys, Starcraft 2, is amazing, but it wasn't on the E3, and Gears of War 3 and Halo Reach, it's the same as always! LBP2 looks amazing and it's not on the top! WTH is wrong?
sorry, but Witcher 2 is the best game... so what problem you have?? ps. sorry, i'm polish. don't speak english :P
What's sad about The Witcher 2 issue is that the Witcher was a great game to begin with, and the sequel won't probably need this kind of trickery at all to be successful.
@thom_maytees I agree. Limiting voting to those of a certain level is a good idea, and then we wouldn't have to worry so much about fraudulent votes.
