Has PC exclusive ever claimed GOTY yet?

All GOTYs I see so far are Sony or Nintendo exclusives or multiplatforms.

do you mean from GS only or in general?

Either way, a PC exclusive has earned a GOTY award

or does it hit a bit too close to PC fanbase insecurity for not having many AAA exclusives?

Something that no one who makes these threads has been able to answer for me is why should I care about someone else's opinion on GOTY?

Same reason you would care about those same people's opinion on game reviews, shrug*. Also, if hermits don't care about game review scores "other people's opinions" then why do they always remind everyone that PC has more AAA and AA games than other consoles?

Yeah, well fanboys only care about something when their preferred system wins that category. GOTY matters just as much, if not more than normal reviews since it involves all the staff who review games. If anyone who argues against that then they should stop trying playing the SW's game altogether.

Well, if you like something that someone else likes, then that makes you cool.

At least that's what I've been told. *takes a drag from a cigarette*

I mean, that's great, really (and I daresay a lot of PC games deserved GotY that didn't get it on this site), but the question stands for this website, not other ones.

TC please do some research before making a thread like this. I don't see why peasants believe more GOTY's equals a better platform/system it's ludicrous.

by your twisted hermit logic of what constitutes an AAA game
