You can watch IGN, live, annouce their Game of the year nominations with little itnerviews with the developers and such.

Game of the Year. Few things are as important, as contentious, and as conversation-worthy as deciding which game deserves IGN's highest annual honor.IGN

So far we have,

1. Mass Effect 3

2. Guild Wars 2

3. The Unfinished Swan

4. Borderlands 2

5. Hotline Miami

6. FTL

7. Halo 4

8. The Walking Dead: The Game

9. Journey

10. Dishonored

(I think they said there were 10 nominations coming, so I'll update when they come in.)

Good list so far? Terrible? Why is the PC so good?

I think all this list shows is how bad this year has been.

#3 Posted by biggest_loser (24057 posts) -
Is it even worth following this year?! lol
#4 Posted by PCgameruk (1425 posts) -

Did consoles have any games this year other than Halo 4?

Max Payne 3, Sleeping Dogs, Planetside 2 should be in the list.

Uh, yeah...

I think the reason is most of Sony's and MSs studios are working on next gen titles now. PS3 and 360 will be replaced soon I hope.

Yes, most likely.

Didn't expect to see Hotline Miami on there. I'm surprised IGN even knew that game existed.

Or FTL.
#13 Posted by Big_Pecks (5350 posts) -

I'll be surprised if Black/White 2 don't show up, since it got 9.6.

"3. The Unfinished Swan" Wow.

Oh wow I didn't even see that. That and Hotline Miami are both 16-bit games. How funny would that be if they won GOTY over massively budgeted AAA games :P

Damn IGN is giving a lot of nominaitons to smaller games. I wonder if Mark of the Ninja will grab seat #10

IGN has been quite vocal that they thought it was a disappointment.

lol how does a game achieve to be a disapointment after all the crap games that preceded it?

that turd doesn't deserve anything.

lack of Max Payne 3 and Far Cry 3 is a bit glaring but not a bad list otherwise from the games i've played.

Calling it, Journey's gonna win.

I still cannot believe that the PS3 got that many. Unfinished Swan seems to be a pretty tough sell even as a candidate.
#35 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11916 posts) -

How is FTL anyway? It looks good from the videos I've seen.

I still can't believe people don't like 2012.

I hate to be "that guy" who give a game he hasn't played a bad rep (which I'm not trying to), but it just seems like there are more worthy games this year. Reviews from both critics and users seem to point out the game's flaws (although it does plenty of things right as well). So yeah, I'd agree with you. Miller has been going through chemo recently so that could have affected his argument in some way.

There's just not enough genre pushers and there's a general lack of games in the more popular genres. Sure, some people could legitimately say that this year didn't have that many good games, but I think it still did. Not as many as 2011, but still a lot.

Jesus christ FTL is such a wannabe hipster fad, it really is a glorified flash game with barely anything to it.

It's still fresher than the game in your avatar.

PC dominates the list, and has the best version of nearly everything on it.

#44 Posted by Goyoshi12 (9687 posts) -

Considering the score they gave it, I'm rather surprised Black Ops 2 is not up there.

/thread one-and-done...

At least they had enough dignity not to put Diablo 3 on there, despite scoring it AAA (9.5!)

I'd love to hear what's not the best on it

No. As TC, I'm ordering you to leave.
#48 Posted by trollop_scat (2653 posts) -

I just double-checked, IGN gave Diablo 3 a 9.5 and didn't even bother putting it on its GotY list! Puuuuuthetic. They basically just admitted they're Blizzard advertisers with ZERO journalistic integrity, as most of us have known for years. So glad I've never been a regular visitor there...

Same thing with Black Ops 2 scoring a 9.3

PC dominating?

All is as it is expected to be.
