in my opinion what all of us think is a good game is a game that has good graphics and can play with friends that is easy to play and if this is true we're stuffed up.
Ok, so this game looks great, but I don't understand how its GOTY. It looks great from an art point of view, but why would you want to spend 2 hours flapping around the desert doing nothing...
from the gameplay in the video nothing looks fun at all. they keep saying the artwork and the music is good who cares that wont keep me interested. if this game was made by a major developer it wouldnt be praised i bet
Well, obviously if It has won GOTY on gamespot and overall best game of the year on IGN, then it must be worth checking out, I'll probs pick it up soon. Maybe the creators of Journey payed GS and IGN to feature their game best of the year....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......
The best girly game ever!
And this should have come to VITA as well, i think that it can easily handle it...
The people that don't agree with the game getting game of the year clearly haven't played it. Even if you don't feel it should be crowned king you would at least be able to understand and accept the game getting the award.
Personally I feel there were many great titles this year and others that could have taken the award. That said I can at least understand why the game is here and how it could be the winner. Having finished the game twice earlier today it was an amazing game that does merit praise.
Despite the apparent disbelief on this getting GOTY -- I can see what GS was trying to convey by giving this the same.
Suddenly hearing Jane's long lost voice again, however, was quite saddening...
bribery and favor granting... gamespot is not new on this! pleeeeaase! there are obviously great games that came out recently... GAMESPOT, why do this? Your tarnished reputation will never see the light of day...
Over the past couple off years gamespot has got worst and worst ! But this is the final straw G.O.T.Y. Really !!!!
shocking no less...ppl for art there are art basel, galleries etc....Maybe there's something about me that I'm a little cuckoo...but this??.....
If you manage to reach the mountain you can actually play Black ops 2 with Master Chief. Even Max payne does a slo-mo move to help u reach across a bridge (you just bounce off him). Eventually you have to beat Connor Kenway (AC3) as a final boss. No wonder its the GOTY. Oh im sorry *spoiler alert*.
I cannot believe it. This is game of the year on gamespot??!! Not to mention it is an exclusie......
ok this just SUX u just doing fap fap on the desert nothing else and it is the best game of 2012 damn i should be in paradise no way i survived this OMG!
why does a game that takes 2 hours to complete with no replay value get game of the year on gamespot?
And yet another reason I'm thinking about jumping ship from 360 to PS3... Looks awesome! It got overall GOTY at IGN.
@clever_inks Because this game is beautifully epic.
they Would have Made Big and Empty and Boring AND repemtive game like others with 200 man Companies and "So much money" but they are a small studio and they made a small in the name but Great hearted Masterpiece
@kenshingt2007 It seems you have been living under a rock if you haven't heard of this game.
@kenshingt2007 How dare they honor a game for being truly good.
@JMcN76 It's called an art style. Just like Minecraft is also art with his cubics.
You can't make the best looking game GOTY simply because it's best looking. Otherwise Battlefield 3 would have won last year, but it didn't.
@Stoner225 exclusives can still win game of the year
@JudgeSim Because in this day and age of mass shootings, giving it to a shooter (the only genre actually putting out quality this year) feels kinda redundant (to them, that is).
Way to cave to the media, GS.
The game is cute, clever, and pretty - but not GOTY worthy.
i wouldnt buy into the hype, this game is extremely overrated and theres little to no gameplay whatsoever
@jollyjoel23 You are right from that point of view, but I think a GOTY should be something that everybody can play with. (I don't have a problem with exclusives though. They can be really good too., like Uncharted.)
@Prats1993 @orthodox1976 wouldn't buy into the hype? Goty from ign and gamespot.... No hype. Just epic.
@Prats1993 Really? How did it get Game of the Year at IGN? It must be really good to outshine all other games of 2012?
