You linked to studio of the year instead of just the awards. But I guess ND for that

GOTY for me I chose TLOU. I was edging towards GTA V but I went against it in the end.

Couldn't really care for others, I voted Troy Baker in anything he was nominated for

Super Mario 3D World is my pick from their list. I'd have chosen Pikmin 3, but they didn't nominate it for GOTY.

Most Anticipated: Titanfall (My personal choice: Monolith Soft's X)

Best Mobile: Who cares?

Game of the Year: Tomb Raider (My personal choice: Fire Emblem Awakening) TLOU and GTAV nom.

Best Action Adventure: Tomb Raider (My personal choice) TLOU and GTAV nom.

Best RPG: Fire Emblem Awakening (My personal choice) No Shin Megami Tensei IV nomination??

Best DLC: Who cares?

Best Nintendo: Super Mario 3D World (My personal choice: Pokemon X/Y)

Best Casual: Animal Crossing: New Leaf (My personal choice)

Best Soundtrack: Ni No Kuni (My personal choice: Fire Emblem Awakening) TLOU and GTAV nom.

Studio of Year: Irrational games (My personal choice: Monolith Soft) TLOU and GTAV nom

Best Sports: Who cares?

Best Fighting: Injustice (My personal choice: Aquapazza)

Best Xbox: Bioshock Infinite (My personal choice: Battlefield 4) GTAV nom

Best PC: not PC gamer

Best Voice Actor: Willem Dafoe (My personal choice: Tales of Xillia, Alvin) TLOU and GTAV nom

Best Song: Sleepwalking GTAV nom

Best Shooter: Bioshock Infinite (My personal choice)

Best Independent: Papers Please (My personal choice: Hate Plus)

Best Driving: n/a

Best Playstation: Tomb Raider (My personal choice: Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn) TLOU and GTAV nom

Best Handheld: Pokemon X/Y (My personal choice)

Best Voice Actress: Camilla Luddington, as Lara Croft (My personal choice) TLOU nom

TLOU nominations: 7/22 - 12 not applicable nominations =7/10 possible nominations among all possible categories. And GOTY nominee.
GTAV nominations: 8/22 - 10 not applicable nominations =8/12 possible nominations among all possible categories. And GOTY nominee.

If this isn't proof that these people only play bandwagon games, I don't know what is. There were tons and tons of great games released this year, and these 2 inflated the nominations.

Hmmmm..not sure what my favorite game this year was. Its between GTAV, Bioshock and TLOU.

I voted for Bioshock since its probably getting no love now since it came out earlier in the year.

Also, how the f*** is Gone Home nominated for best indie game but not Rogue Legacy? Im calling bullshit

Also, how the f*** is Animal Crossing nominated for best handheld game and not Fire Emblem???????

Man, Ashley Johnson vs Courtnee Draper, that might have been harder to choose than GOTY for me.

I didn't pick anything, that would mean giving the VGA's some of credibility and lowering myself as a human being.
