PC dominating?

All is as it is expected to be.

Domination is expected, I agree.

I just double-checked, IGN gave Diablo 3 a 9.5 and didn't even bother putting it on its GotY list! Puuuuuthetic. They basically just admitted they're Blizzard advertisers with ZERO journalistic integrity, as most of us have known for years. So glad I've never been a regular visitor there...

[QUOTE="MBirdy88"]Jesus christ FTL is such a wannabe hipster fad, it really is a glorified flash game with barely anything to it.Ravenshout

It's still fresher than the game in your avatar.

Yea, easy random pot luck flash games with about 5 different combat outcomes is sooo much better than diablo.

Because out of the whole list you can play the most of them on pc.

Guild Wars 2,FTL and Hotline Miami,so three.

And the main point is that out of the 10,7 are available on the PC,making it not only the system with more exclusives in the list but also the ability to play most of the games there.

PC has most noms, and most exclusive noms. And at the time of the thread being made it had more than half of the noms as exclusives.

They're multiplat games...you don't count them as strictly PC nominations.

But you did so innacurately,you said it has two when it has three exclusives in the nominations.

I don't really care...was simply commenting on including the other games as "pseudo" PC exclusives like somehow they all counted just because it's on PC. I couldn't care less about nominations, just the winner.

It´s the same reason as to why Hawken is gonna miss the awards or like SW ToR missed last year,coming out by the time the awards are already underway.

Hawken feels like COD with mechs. MW:O is better.

Few things are as important, as contentious, and as conversation-worthy as deciding which game deserves IGN's highest annual honor.IGN

Or, to put it another way, no one cares.

Too bad Torchlight 2 didn't get a nomination. It's more deserving than The Unfinished Swan. Max Payne 3 should also be given a nod.

Well, IGN never struck me as a place to visit for PC shindings. I'd go to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for that. Plus it has HORACE THE ENDLESS BEAR.

As far as I'm aware, today's December 5. Far Cry 3 just released. Many places already seem to be making lists and handing out awards. Can no one hold their wad for another 25 days? Someone explain to me how GotY can be in anyway credible when the goddamn year has not even finished yet. Maybe this is just me as no one else seems to have an issue with this, but it'd be great to get an explanation.

Good list, anyone saying this was a bad year is a console only gamer.

Planetside 2 should be on it however, amazing for a F2P game.

Also imo Black Mesa is up there for GOTY, but since it's a mod, i don't think it counts.

Of those games listed I would have to say Borderlands2, Halo4 and FTL are my 3 favorites of there list.

Didn't expect to see Hotline Miami on there. I'm surprised IGN even knew that game existed.

BPoole96

Or FTL.

Oh wow I didn't even see that. That and Hotline Miami are both 16-bit games. How funny would that be if they won GOTY over massively budgeted AAA games :P

Would be so awesome...and here's the thing, probably well deserved. FTL is a masterpiece of game design :).
