Since when was there not allowed to be a sequel to the RETURN of an AMAZING series, Donkey Kong Country Returns? If there WASN'T a sequel, it would be STUPID. He says he's disappointed by the announcement of something so amazing. Screw you, Tom.
GameSpot Live - People's Choice E3 2013: Live Seeding
- Jun 19, 2013
Ahead of our E3 2013 people's choice award voting, we randomly determine the first round match-ups.
One thing I don't understand is how this is a peoples choice decision, I don't remember a vote or did I miss it?
I think if this was all staff decisions they're playing it a little loose with "peoples choice" title.
@Alvmes I don't think Final Fantasy XV was available for play at any of the booths so it wasn't included.
I just played the beta for Company of Heroes 2 and it was amazing, I don't understand why it's not here.
I bet if it was a console game it would be on here, and if my playtime was any indication I imagine it's E3 showing was impressive.
@mkeezay22 same goes for Total war... but they put in games like that Halo game -.-
Yeah, why no love for sports games. There were some incredible games shown. Oh yeah, GameSpot doesn't care about sports games.
@wantbackin It's not like it's to expect that all of a sudden FIFA becomes a golf sim...no surprises and nothing new about the sport games...just flashier graphics and newer licenses and that's it then
@LordCrash88 The excitement level and intrigue for those games isn't as high as it is for the games in the tournament.
@LordCrash88 All I'm saying is it has potential and thus a lot of people in the industry are going to be keeping an eye on it.
@LordCrash88 Nobody knows how well Halo: Spartan Assault will perform. It's possible that it could be a dud but it could also be huge. It could be that game that just explodes in popularity and introduces an entirely new group of casual gamers to the Halo series, and that alone makes it intriguing and exciting.
@LordCrash88 Yeah but Battlefield and Call of Duty are too popular to not include. They reach a much wider audience than a typical sports game would. Shooters in general are more popular and people seem to get more hyped up about the release of the next great shooter than they do of the next Madden or FIFA release.
@LordCrash88 I will agree with you that NFS should have been replaced by a different game (like Transistor) but your argument still doesn't make the other sports franchises more exciting. They are all too similar year to year... hard to get excited about that.
@bijilkif And no Company of Heroes 2.....gamespot has obviously NO interest in strategy or PC games in general....
@bijilkif Yeah, this is extremely weird decision. :/
Come on, start the machine for the last two! No matter if it makes no sense, just start the blower xD
Why no Rome II Total War or Company of Heroes 2 here? There were PS and Xbox One exclusives, WiiU exclusives, why no PC exclusives???
@LordCrash88 I think there's just generally more excitement for the consoles and their games considering that there are two new systems coming out at the end of the year.
@diskotheque @LordCrash88 Lots of these "peoples choice" games are coming to PC also and any sane gamer would rather play the PC version than a console version with lower framerate and resolution.
@LordCrash88 The whole point of this tournament is to include games that generated a lot of excitement. Obviously GameSpot isn't perfect (excluding Transistor) but they did a pretty good job overall. I own a PS3 and a PC and I play games on both, but the games I am most excited about after E3 are games arriving on consoles, especially the new ones. That's just how I feel, and I'm sure a lot of other people feel the same way, including most of the GameSpot staff.
@LordCrash88 @diskotheque good point, in most ways the PC is newer as a large amount of PC gamers have likely updated their rigs since Wii-U was released
PC is always new, thats why it's the best
@diskotheque @LordCrash88 That's maybe true for the public or console fans but it's weak if it's also true for game journalists who claim to be "multiplaform". PC fans are not that interested in the new consoles. And don't forget: even WiiU exclusives are on the list and that is NOT a new console....
@LordCrash88 It's not a weak argument... the excitement level is always much higher for consoles when new ones are released. The focus is more towards the games being released for these consoles than it is for PC games right now. In another year or two that excitement will dwindle a bit and the playing field will be much more even.
