PC gaming is primarily console ports, it makes logical sense not to win any awards.

@m3dude1: is that really the best you got? So you're not denying PC had, or has, the most AAA rated exclusives ?

thats really all that needs to be said. games like divinity are reviewed with astronomically lower standards than games like uncharted 4 will be

@m3dude1: please, link me to your source

Speaking of GS reviews of course since that's how AAA is determined on SW

Every year up to 2005. After that all of them are multiplats except for Super Mario Galaxy and MGS 4.

Something that no one who makes these threads has been able to answer for me is why should I care about someone else's opinion on GOTY?

Same reason you would care about those same people's opinion on game reviews, shrug*. Also, if hermits don't care about game review scores "other people's opinions" then why do they always remind everyone that PC has more AAA and AA games than other consoles?

Yeah, well fanboys only care about something when their preferred system wins that category. GOTY matters just as much, if not more than normal reviews since it involves all the staff who review games. If anyone who argues against that then they should stop trying playing the SW's game altogether.

well pointing out a fact and actually caring are two different things

Get ready your bodyarmor LR, super angry casharmy is coming with a butthurt response.

I don't get the suggestion.

Why would I be butthurt about peoples desperate hypocritical mind frame? I simply answered soulitane's question in a way that everyone could apply for themselves. A person could have different reasons why they care about scores, I left it up to everyone else to insert their own reasons why they care or don't care about game scores, thus also answering why they would care about GOTY.

I am not the one making excuses or lying to myself or others about my stance on scores vs GOTY or how much I "care" or don't care about them.

Since as I have seen both soulitane and lostrib quote GS game scores to make or support arguments they have here in system wars, this knee-jerk reaction to my post about GOTY's having the same "care" factor as someone would have for scores, and suddenly acting like they don't care about scores anymore is quite funny and revealing about their flimsy and whimsical argument mentality.

refer back to this portion of my original response for any further questions:

"Yeah, well fanboys only care about something when their preferred system wins that category."

Because they have almost nothing left to brag about against PC.

First, it was that pc didn't have high scoring, quality games. Then last year, it got more AA/AAA games.

This year, now, Divinity OS gets a 9, and 87 on MC. PC is probably going to get more high scoring games again. So, time to pull out the GOTY move.

Honestly, considering the TC is a cow, does the PS4 have any GOTY games or high quality exclusives that aren't more of the same?

You know, besides another Uncharted or Naughty Dog game? Or another Little Big Planet? Not that i mind them, just that, it seems only Bloodborne has a change of getting those awards and scores.

Edit: Journey got some in 2012, i believe. But that's the rare case.

Now that we answered OP's question,time for a lock?

why lock? people can let it die, if there's no further discussion

queue cows circle jerks for a never ending thread

or does it hit a bit too close to PC fanbase insecurity for not having many AAA exclusives?

And PS4 has 0 AAA exclusives so far.

This goes for everybody, incidentally.

I have a question for you.

Why is it we need to edit out the quote chain ourselfs, when the old Gamespot did that by itself before ? You guys need to re-implement this.

#84 Edited by deactivated-5920bf77daa85 (3270 posts) -

I own a PC to play online rpgs, strategy games, and building games (simcity, sims, black and white). I own consoles to play fighting games, driving games, and the occasional jRPG. I do not own any machine to play GOTY games because the award is not a nobel prize in physics, and actually tells me more about the editors than the games.

While I rarely use a controller to play games, it does work well for fighting games and driving games, and some other games like Dungeon Siege 3. Apparently, however, others feel that the true worth of a controller is to use the thumbsticks to walk somewhere and trigger a cutscene, then press a button to skip the cutscene after you've seen it once, or you get bored and want to watch another cutscene.

They might be intimidated by the fact the PC gets more A, AA and AAA exclusive games than all three console platforms combined each and every generation.

@foxhound_fox: I think it's more like desperation, up until last year they were getting destroyed left and right in terms of exclusives, when the last of us won GOTY, they decided to latch onto that hoping to finally hold something against the PC, wich is honestly not much when you think about it, lol

I think that's the problem I encountered. I played TLOU first and then played UC1 and 2. And I just didn't get what all the hoopla was about. Not that the Uncharted games were bad or anything

PC had the most of those last gen and this gen.....

Actually, when you factor in AA scoring titles, it has this gen and last gen more exclusives than all 3 major systems combined.....think about that for a second.

@m3dude1 : Even you can't defend against that. No amount of bullshit baby whining about what genres count will save you on this.

What defines AAA? EA marketing bugdet? Ubisoft telling you they didn't downgrade their crap? Sony hawking it like fish that is about to go bad?

When I look for meaningful GOTY titles, I would look at the GDC. Here are the 13 GDC GOTY awards:

2000 The Sims (Maxis) - PC


2001 GRAND THEFT AUTO III (DMA Design/Rockstar Games) -PC

2002 METROID PRIME (Retro Studios)

2003 STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC (BioWare Corp.) -PC

2004 Half-Life 2 (Valve Software / Vivendi Universal Games) -PC, unless you count a console port 8 years later

2005 Shadow of the Colossus (Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.)

2006 Gears of War (Epic Games / Microsoft Game Studios)

2007 Portal (Valve) -PC (later ported to console along with HL2)

2008 Fallout 3 (Bethesda Game Studios) -PC, with a later port to PS3/Xbox 360

2009 Uncharted 2 (Naughty Dog)

2010 Red Dead Redemption (Rockstar San Diego)

2011 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda Game Studios) - PC, unless you count a stripped down port to PS3 and Xbox 360

2012 Journey (Thatgamecompany/Sony Computer Entertainment)

2013 The Last Of Us (Naughty Dog)
