The Final Four...complete experiences matter....

So where is the Walking Dead or Journey? Nope...its Mass Effect 3, Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, and Assassin's Creed III. Reason: because they are complete games....the Walking Dead and Journey are not. Gamers want gameplay as well as the complete package, which those indie titles lack. And really, editors are overrating these games, Journey is a very short experience, its a Limbo or a Braid...it good for what it is but it does not have much value. The Walking Dead has very weak gameplay even for its genre. Its all about story while Journey is all about art. These are reaches for GOTY. Seriously, these games will be forgotten, especially when the Last of Us comes out in Walking Dead's case or the next biggest indie hit in Journey's case. Mass Effect 3 is easily the most complete game this year. Assassin's Creed III gets around its issues and also delivers a complete experience. Far Cry 3 is the best shooter of the year and a huge improvement over Far Cry 2. and Borderlands 2 has hands down the best gameplay this year. Editors jumped the gun here.....its only time to give indies GOTYs when they actually make a complete experience, not rely of gimmicks or a facet. But now, these games are more overrated than a overhyped AAA title. And as much as I call Skyrim, Red Dead Redmption, and Fallout 3 overrated, at least they are far more complete experiences than Journey or TWD.

Mass Effect 3 should lose just so we can have a great time watching texasgoldrush having a mental breakdown

Looks like its winning.....and I actually predicted Borderlands 2 to win. Funny how all the moronic hate ME3 gets, its still getting votes. Must be a vocal minority.

Yeah most of the people who are vocal about it are just crazy mad about the ending. I have to admit i was not too pleased with it but the 30+ hours before and all the other games are still amazing in my eyes unlike other people that said the while series was ruined (BS). and for me extended cut made it better. But some people just cant be pleased.

I would like to see FC3 or ME3 be GOTY. Both are great.

I don't think AC3 should be considered. It wasn't that great. I agree with the other 3. They are fantastic. I'd say put Max Payne 3 there instead of AC3, though. Max Payne is a lot of fun to play and it just has some awesome writing that made the story for me.

Bleh, all shooters :( I wish there was more variety this year.

Yeah, if you buy all the DLC, which is what dictates most of the important plot points, inb4 your disgusting apologies for BioWare and the game.

And yet Journey and The Walking Dead are stopping it left right and center when it comes to awards from critics. :lol:

Hey Texas, are you still hyped for Rapelay 2 or is ME3 filling that void nicely? :)
#9 Posted by whiskeystrike (12096 posts) -

Haven't played any of them but Borderlands 2 looks most interesting

#10 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38219 posts) -

It will be FC3 I reckon, and it would be rightly deserved. AC III and ME3 disappointed in some areas, FC3 did not.

It will be FC3 or ME3, and I really hope it's not ME3 just to see texas cry

However ME3 has faced down in the votes, much stiffer competiton, like Dishonored.

I hope Mass Effect 3 loses since it beat Dishonored.

Dishonored hadn't a chance to begin with. It's not a well rounded game at all.

Far Cry 3 will win.

I am shocked Borderlands 2 is losing....its been winning the most readers choice awards.....and its my second fave game. I think it has more replayabilty than Far Cry 3 as well.

No it won't, TWD won't be forgotten at all. Just from the VGA GOTY win alone would cement that. Never mind that gamers are all raving about it.

I have no idea why BL2 has more, maybe it's a better game? I never said anything to the contrary. Just said TWD won't be forgotten, and that still stands. Whether you care to believe it or not

It will be forgotten simply because its just not a complete game, with other games with similiar stories that will be more complete coming into play. And TLUS will overshadow TWD.

Who cares? of course a brand new game will overshadow a series of games from the previous year. GTA V will overshadow almost every game when that releases. means nothing. Get yo head out yo ass.

And who says it's not a complete game? you? have you played it? Every other person I've heard who HAS played it would disagree heavily with you

No they don't..... Thats why we remember many classics. Seriously as much as I think Deus Ex is overrated, has it been overshadowed? Nope. Its concept is the bar. And TWD doesn't raise the bar or offer a complete experience, hence its far more likely to become obscure.

Why do I take my frusteration out on TWD? Maybe because it has more to do with the fact that is NOT A COMPLETE GAME, and that its gameplay is below average for its GENRE. Because instead of trying to be the best it can be in all areas, it specializes and lets facets of the game be subpar. And its not just ME3, the other three games are all better, and I can EASILY make the case of Borderlands 2 being GOTY.
