I was thinking about the odds and probabilities. Since the pc has "the most games," you'd think it would stand the chance of snatching the most goty awards. But they didn't even nail one. Does this mean that pc, while having the largest library of games, has also the largest library of non goty worthy games?

PC - 0

360 - 1 (at the time of winning, Gears was exclusive)

Wii - 1

PS3 - 3

No, PC is just held up at a higher standard than console games. Greg Kasavin was talking about this a while back, which was why there were no 10.0 PC games at the time.

Not having a game worth of goty is being held to a higher standard?

We all know that all the multiplatform titles were best on PC. I mean who really enjoyed Skyrim an ounce not on PC?

Ok. Let's ignore the fact that most of GOTIES are on PC.

Your question doesn't have any sense. You ask

"'Does this mean that pc, while having the largest library of games, has also the largest library of non goty worthy games?"'

The answer is no, as most GOTIES are available on PC.

The title is very clear.

Why didn't the pc have a goty exclusive gen 7?

why it should ? Amount of Goties doesn't determine the quality of the entire game library.

Why would I be insecure about the best handheld gaming device? :-/

You still haven't answered the question. No one has.

Only conclusion we can come to is, pc has the quantity, but not the quality.

Lol. Using your logic, if a basket is full of coal, but has a few golden coins, then the basket is full of gold. Do you see a logical fallacy here ?

I see someone who decided to post in a thread discussion about pc lack of goty exclusives, and prefers to dance instead of answer the question.

Because you keep avoiding posts about them with your stupid "jelly" and you don't answer

Or post something completely unrelated to the topic about something else to avoid answering

Will be the gaming event that changed gaming. Steam Machines little too late. MS and Ninty really haven't brought anything innovative. Sony has now got gaming locked down.

Thank you Sony, and Lord Kaz.

How's that innovation exactly?

And Nintendo didn't bring anything innovative?That's why they tried to copy them and failed with Move?

Jelly confirmed.

My answer is no. Here you have. You are welcome.

Because PC has a weak exclusive library for the type of games that gets the vast majority of GOTYs. Singleplayer, storydriven, third/first-person, high production values, RPG/Action-adventure types of games.

PC is more about MP, strategy, MMO, top down view, indie and so on.

#32 Posted by Basinboy (11087 posts) -

It probably should have for either LoL or Dota2, although they're flagrantly similar.

#33 Posted by DonnaTroy (232 posts) -

@Sushiglutton:

Wow. An actual, honest answer. Thanks for that. I was starting to lose hope.

Yeah but for whatever reason competetive games never win GOTY. Racers, sport, MOBA, FPS MP etc, they all have zero chance.

I disagree. Goties are like Oscars. Not all Oscars films are fun to watch though. If Goties were determined by popularity, then Dota 2 or Lol would win.

Too many good games to play, that last more than 10 hours.

#42 Edited by jhonMalcovich (4634 posts) -

I wonder, if PC wins a GOTY this year, for example, Star Citizen, then it would be totally legit if I make a thread on SW

Why didn't the consoles have a single GOTY Exclusive this gen?

And then I will be yelling at consolites, "Answer the fucking question !!!" XD

OP hits the nail on the head.

PC peasant race: "bu..bu..bu.. we have the most indi...games!"

LMFAO, PC is the true indie station.

And it'll take a while for them to get a GOTY.

Let me know when GOTY stops TLOU from sitting on a shelf collecting dust then inevitable traded in for the next big fad that lasts 10 hours.

I wonder how many people will be playing LoL and doTA 2 in 5 years time? probably more.

GOTY... much casual, such hype, wow.

Any proof of that?

My first, of four play throughs lasted 25 hours. :-/

Calling something casual doesn't make it so.

Winning over 200 goty awards says and speaks volumes, whether you want to accept it or not.

I wouldn't brag about winning a goty from a website called "G33KPRON"

And tons of websites no one ever heard of
