What does Game Of The Year even mean anymore ?

"admit you got it wrong "gamespot" "Tom""

Seriously, can McShea win some type of award for this much beautiful cow tipping even six or seven months later?

With lems used to repetition (HaloGearsForza) I really doubt that :(

This game sure is getting jerked off a lot.

Might even be more than what UC2 got. Which was already impressive as f*ck.

This. Dat hipster gaming media.

Every gaming reviewer on the internet got together and made a pact that GTAV was not allowed to receive any nominations whatsoever, because its too popular. Guarrantee Gone Home, Stanley Parable, and Papers Please were the other nominees for most of them. *rollseyes*

On topic, im plaing The Last of Us multiplayer right now. Its pretty much been my go-to game for the past 3 months.

#20 Edited by Speak_Low (749 posts) -

Oh wow baby girl - great news

I also believe GTA V was the runner up with the second highest votes, but TLOU was far ahead of all of them.

Dayum, and I havent even played it yet... God damnit, it's taking too long to go down in price in my country :(

#22 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9443 posts) -

lol, are cows still mad at Tom McShea? Also...

#23 Posted by hotdiddykong (2047 posts) -

In the end, it really boils down to what game you enjoyed the most.


Last of Us Means nothing except a learning curve of story telling and tense moments between characters first started in Walking Dead.

This is what GOTY truly means, something the industry can learn.

Gamespot gave GOTY to Zelda because it expands the game series even more that we can expect more in the future, having done it right since the last 15 years of otherwise decent Zelda games that only get praise for their presentation.

Otherwise, its your own personal preference.


If you are so stuck up over other people's GOTY not being a game you like better, then you need to get your priorities and privledges in check, because nobody gives a shit.

#24 Posted by Suppaman100 (3596 posts) -

Lol, that's some weak damage control.

"bu..bu..bu..only GS scores count" LMFAO!

Meanwhile in the real world, TLOU is the best game of the gen hands down.

Poor lems :(

Can't even experience the GOAT of the year of all time.

#26 Edited by foxhound_fox (86977 posts) -

How can an opinion be wrong? Sure, you can form an opinion around incorrect information or assumptions... but giving a game an 8/10 because you don't think it's as good as other people, that can't be "wrong".

Cows are still butthurt, all this time later. Wow.

Oh, an you are committing an argumentum ad populum fallacy. You claim The Last of Us is good because a lot of people say it is. That isn't true, it's only a good game to those that think it is. The whole point of an opinion is that everyone is entitled to have one.

I don't think you understand the concept of an opinion

#28 Posted by cainetao11 (15952 posts) -

@foxhound_fox: the funny thing is calling pics of Zelda GOTY HERE, damage control. This whole thread is damage control, hence the request to admit gs got it wrong. TLOU is a great game, but cows can't accept different people have different tastes.

#29 Posted by Mkavanaugh77 (20730 posts) -

Cows still upset with that 8/10 ahhaha

But the games industry's members cannot feed their families off scores, only sales.

Best case is to look at a good mix of awards (why do you need someone else's opinion?), higher sales, and scores then.

Winner of this gen is then Super Mario Galaxy 1/2, or GTA IV/V.

#33 Posted by treedoor (7478 posts) -

Cows still damage controlling.

#34 Posted by incuensuocha (1509 posts) -

Yes it flopped on Gamespot and so for the sake of System Wars it is officially a flop. However, if some guy who knows nothing about Gamespot or any other site asks you about The Last of Us, what accomplishment and reception is more relevant to his understanding of what the game represents? That it got an 8 on Gamespot and "flopped", or that it won the most GOTY awards of any game released last year? That's the difference between System Wars and the real world.

If The Last of Us "represents" anything in the gaming industry, then boy oh boy, do we have a loooooong way to go here

8/10.

I don't find sales to be a good variable. Awards and scores are far better variables for choosing te best game of the gen.

In the end it's purely subjective of course.

If I recall correctly, TLOU won a poll here on SW and was voted best game of the gen.

SMG 2 comes close as best game of the gen imo.

201 GOTY awards for The Last of Us, that's even more than the 170 that Uncharted 2 won back in the day! ;)

SDC2014 baybee!

The Critics' Picks - 161

The Readers' Picks - 40

Total - 201

Here's a pat on the back and high five for rationality.

One for each neuron on the average xboner brain. That will leave most of them without neurons for this gen after their neurons fuse out due to the extreme butthurt.

Godny Domination Continuation

When will blab?

#44 Posted by speedfog (2868 posts) -

Only Gamespot score and GOTY count here. Sorry cows. The Last of Us was a flop.

#45 Posted by clr84651 (5285 posts) -

Bu bu but the Lems said it was a flop because GS reviewed it an 8. Lol

#46 Posted by TheEroica (13082 posts) -

Congrats to TLOU... a really great game... Whether or not gamespot got the review "right", they ended up picking the game of the year accurately as A link between worlds is pretty much perfect.

As a lifetime gamer, it is sad to see that this thread is an accurate reflection of the gaming industry today.

I remember when we used to have intelligent debates on games and the industry....

@navyguy21: Blamme the twats that funded and redesigned GS. All the legit posters just decided to either move on to Gaf, Skype or just moved the fvck on.

It was such a rash ass decision.

Ugh.

Well the rule changes are what are making me think about moving on as well. The trolls should be controlled. Im not saying we cant discuss games with passion because for most of us, it IS our passion. But to have immature fanboy and kids destroy that passion is disheartening. I think i might just move on to GiantBomb. At least the trolls are shut down often by the staff with accurate info and corrections, and the rules are different there.

Ugh.

You realise that the new site design had to make sacrifices right? while in many ways its worse, it now fits across all devices.

Though the designers seem to have failed to take into account the little features that made things easier.... but the old site was information overload, very dated looking and was not responsive web design in the slightest.
