If TLOU becomes GOTY, it means that a "flop" (not my words because its a 95% on Metacritic) on the PS3 is still better than all other games released on the PC, 360 etc this year.

I wonder if the people that kept spamming 8/10 are now going to spam GOTY???

It will still be a flop.

Will there be another requirement for posting stuff on SW? Say a certain amount of posts?

And yet it crushed all other games, even the (thought to be undefeatable) monster that is GTA V.

Gonna lol when this wins GOTY. The meta game is so stupid

#10 Posted by navyguy21 (13060 posts) -

No way TLOU wins GOTY.

I dont get the logic of "if it beat GTA5 on PS3, it must be a better game"

That logic is flawed on so many levels. You dont know the methods they used to determine that. It could be most hyped/played game on that platform for all we know, in which TLOU would win.

Doesnt mean it is better than GTA5 as a whole or on both platforms.

My guess would be either AC4 or GTA5.

TLOU is no MGS4

#11 Posted by Liquid_ (2952 posts) -

tlou or ac4 will win goty.

If a Flop gets GOTY Lemmings should be ashamed, but then again the 360 had virtually no exclusives this year or the past few so it's not like it has much to compete with besides multiplats. So, Lemmings in this thread, either way you're not in the place to talk. At least the PS3 has games like TLOU, Beyond 2 Souls solid contenders. What exclusive do you guys have? Forza 5 LMAO.

I think it's the first time in GS history where a game that got scored an 8 by a baboon became GOTY

TLOU is writing history as we speak, and we are all fortunate enough to be a part of that

still not a 9.

Being called GOTY means you are above all other games, and TLOU deserves to be called GOTY because it is above all other games

It's stupid enough people argue over this when they have the freedom of choice to have all of them. Just because mommy told them they can only have 1.

It already won GOTY?

News to me.

#21 Posted by lostrib (42179 posts) -

a flop on SW doesn't mean it was a bad game. How hard is that to understand?

#22 Edited by crimsonman1245 (4253 posts) -

Wait, so even if it wins GOTY its a flop? That's messed up.

#25 Edited by Heil68 (46825 posts) -

Still flopped here. Embrace the flop TC and the healing can begin. Doesn't detract form he game being great or GOTY worthy.

It's just a stupid scores game. Without it, It would have been as boring and dead as OT now is.

It gives people a reason to laugh and cry and to be butthurt.

I have noticed much butt hurt in my time here....and yeah....is a shame about OT.:(

#31 Posted by Pray_to_me (3059 posts) -

I mean. Does anyone take Tom MsShill seriously? His score was a joke and an obvious troll for hits. I mean giving Bioshock Infinite a 4? And frankly I didn't even enjoy infinite that much but a 4? He's mad immature and he sounds like Mike Tyson with his lisp. He's actually personally banned me a few times LMFAO!

Giving TLOU an 8 was likely the highlight of that ronery trolls life, it the only way he can get any attention LMFAO!

I never thought I'd see OT like the wasteland it is now. I've seen threads near the top of the page that haven't been touched in 24 hours. Quite sad.

Oh well, I think it'll take just a little while and SW will be dead as well. The only reason why it's a little more active now is because of the new gen.

To the TC: just accept the flop and move on.

Oh great, cause we don't have nearly enough interactive-movies slash cover based shooters yet.

What a bright future for gaming.

An 8/10 by mcshea is roughly the equivalent of 11.333/10

#37 Posted by Snugenz (12767 posts) -

"What a huge flop that GOTY game was" is what people will say.

#38 Edited by treedoor (7648 posts) -

Ummmmm, yeaaaaahhhhhh.

That 8/10 came from one reviewer. Not the whole of Gamespot's editorial staff.

It's still going to be a flop even if it got GOTY

Nah. For it to flop and then get GOTY is epic ownage. Not only that but it would crown PS3 as system of the gen.

#40 Edited by senses_fail_06 (6745 posts) -

PS3 has such high standards at this point. 8.0 is like a 11/10 on most other platforms.

#41 Posted by MBirdy88 (8999 posts) -


So let me get this straight.... the msot pointless award ever invented (GOTY) ... means that a 10 hour corridor zombie shooter.... will be better than any game on any system?

don't mind if I just laugh at the patheticness of using GOTY as ammunition. it will sit on peoples shelves collecting dust only to probably be played 1 or 2 more times for "the hell of it" later.... meanwhile people put hundreds of hours into many games that offer more.

and no, not because of time.... but because well.... they arn't just a corridor movie wannabe game... they are actual games.... with either competitive nature or are compelling enough to be played for 100s or 1000s of hours.

flop doesn't say anything about the quality of the game, it just means it didn't meet the hype.

It won't win GOTY (not with games like SM3DW and ALBW to compete against) and it will still be a flop.

#45 Edited by chessmaster1989 (29730 posts) -

It has not won yet so why make a thread about it. Nor was it a flop.

Your definition of a flop is nonsense. Why would the score on one site be more important than an aggregate?

because this is system wars, and that is a flop in system wars. But once again, flop does not mean it's a bad game
