1 = tuff one this year... I guess Fulbright because they did something different
2 = the last of us
3 = Trevor
4 = the last of us (writing, acting and motion capture) combo
5 = Xbox one ups and downs, lefts and rights (or vita tv no plans outside japan!)
6 = the last of us last hour of gameplay and cut scenes
( switching to Trevor moments a close second)
7 = rust
8 = aliens
9 = man the last of us again, but GTA 5 was so good too.
10 = gta 5
11 = the last of us
12 = PS4
13 = soundtrack hmmm I loved the song from last of us. Only stand out for me.
14 = not really a dlc guy but I did purchase AC 4 black flag dlc so I pick that
15 = persona 4 golden
16 = the last of us cast
17 = star citizen if a hanger module counts lol otherwise bio shock
18 = what a year. Lots of great games. We were very lucky. In the end the game that I still think about is the last of us. So the last of us wins!

Lots of love for the legend of Zelda 3ds, fire emblem awakening, GTA 5, killzone shadow fall, beyond, black flag, sim city and all the pc projects and early access on steam. Great year. More to come.

1. Best New Studio: Compulsion Games

2. Best New IP: The Last of Us

3. Best New Video Game Character: Trevor
Even those that didn't like GTA5 liked how much Trevor was just a plain psychopath!

4. Game with Best Innovation: Contrast
The shadow mechanic is just the tip of the iceberg for what is one of the best indie games to come out this year.

5. Gaming News Story of the Year: Four way tie:
- YouTube Content ID controversy.
Messing with livelihoods by letting a machine make blanket decisions, even after several game companies have expressed enough love for the new medium that they have expressed that people like TotalBiscuit and Angry Joe are allowed to monetize their videos showing their games, is not the way to get good PR.

- Anita Sarkeesian's Tropes vs. Women in Games series.
Anyone else become as much of a lightning rod as she became? Vitriol from both sides over what she said (the simple act of her name being brought up is enough) might've given her more attention than she deserved after she was proven to not really be a gamer, plagiarizing let's play videos, being trite and misinformed while using old examples, etc. Some of her stanch supporters still don't understand why people don't think she's the right person to represent their otherwise just intentions.

- Sony PS4 shortages
Has anyone else seen the same barren store shelves that I have when trying to find someone who has PS4s in stock? Sony can't keep them in the stores long enough! Telling how much things have changed for them since last gen: no more Giant Enemy Crabs!

- PAX reopens "Dickwolves" controversy
And will some people still give them the time of day after some vowed to never go to a PAX event again after this latest round in consecutive years that they've made asses out of themselves? Unfortunately, yep!

6. Best In-Game Moment: "Let's ask him!" GTA5!
Trevor asks Johnny's blood that's still on Trevor's boot how he's feeling, while standing in front of several Lost members, which Johnny was one of.

7. Most Replayable Game: GTA5!
What, you didn't expect a game within a franchise KNOWN for it's replayability to get the nod?

8. Sequel Fail: Simcity
The Draconian DRM, servers not working, the pain to get to PLAY the game only furthered by the fact that the max city size was too small for no damn good reason? Yeah, a disaster on many fronts.

9. Best Single Player Experience: Tomb Raider
Yes, PLAY IT!

10. Best Multiplayer Experience: Hearthstone
For a FTP game that's still in beta and is simple to just pick up and play, this might be here next year, too. It's so effing ADDICTING!

11. Best Story: Tomb Raider
Lara's growth as the game goes along and how she's shown to face her fears despite her visual discomfort shows just how well thought out the story was in a very underrated game that should've gotten more sales than what it did.

12. Best Next-Gen Console: PS4
No one can find it! Sony must be doing SOMETHING right!

13. Best Soundtrack:

14. Best DLC: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
The satire alone is worth it

15. Best Handheld Game: N/A (didn't do handhelds this year)

16. Best Voice Acting: The Last Of Us

17. Best Art Direction: Contrast

18. GOTY: The Last Of Us
But just by a hair. This was a tough category, and I wish I could have more than one here.

Forgot to fill in a few, so I'll do it here:

13. Best Soundtrack: GTA5!
Was better than last installment, and the way that they added some music during the actual missions was a welcome added touch.

15. Best Handheld Game: As I have not had a handheld for some time, I don't know if I am qualified to give a nominee, but from the others here, I think it would be a tie between Pokemon X&Y and Tearaway. So those will be my picks because I'm sure I need to pick something.
coolbeans  +   597d ago
Nice to see Contrast getting a lot of love from someone. It's got a lot of minor and some big problems on the gameplay design front and a lack of polish, but I still really enjoyed it more expected from those scores.

Oh god, the Sony fanboys on this site are rooting joel for best new character. He's as bland as a wooden stake, and they showed too much emphasis towards his sadness over his daughters death TWENTY years ago! No ones gonna be that depressed for that long. And everyone's saying "joel had to go through tough survival!" Yeah right, he sits on his ass all day in a quarantine zone before having to take Ellie to the fireflies. Overly melodramatic plot. The voice acting is good, but write the summary of the story on paper- it's nothing special.

Sorry, but best new character is Trevor Philips.
Best voice acting: TLOU
Most replayablity: GTA V

Didn't play a whole lot of 2013 games yet (haven't even touched the top 3 meta-darlings). So, get ready for a bit of a doge hipster explosion for some categories.

1. Best New Studio : I-Illusions (Element4l)

Just a great, great studio going making a new way to think of platformers. This studio just beats my admiration for Compulsion Games with the great free DLC it offered (I didn't even know it was until yesterday either).

2. Best New IP : Papers, Please

Another new IP takes GOTY but I'm going with this one due to the principle of how such an unmarketable idea changed the way morality and storytelling can be done in games.

3. Best New Video Game Character : Jake Conway (RtH: Retribution)

Gets every woman he wants; has a bunch of badhiney choppers; and his mullet has a permanent shine even in the dark.

4. Best Innovation : Between Wonderful 101 and Contrast

A Wii game's done the shadow mechanic too but Contrast's nuance is in the brilliance this mechanic has in storytelling. Love the gamepad idea for Wonderful 101 too.

5. Gaming News Story of the Year: EDIT: Copyright infringement BS on TotalBiscuit for Day One: Garry's Incident video review

Forgot about that one.

6. Best In-Game Moment: The poignant ending to Proteus

7. Most Replayable Game : Injustice: Gods Among Us

8. Sequel Fail : SimCity

Maybe would've been COD: Ghosts (still decent though), but the DRM thing is just disgusting to me.

9. Best Single Player Experience : The Stanley Parable

10. Best Multiplayer Experience : Injustice: Gods Among Us

11. Best Story : The Stanley Parable

More geared towards writing than story, but still...it's like the greatest act of tearing down the 4th wall at every corner.

12. Best Next-Gen Console : Xbox One

So mainstream. What heck?

13. Best Soundtrack : Remember Me

The chaotic blend of genres found in the trailer is the thing that got me interested in this game.

14. Best DLC : The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith

Full package could be my GOTY of 2014 if they keep this up. Excellent premise, great writing, etc.

15. Best Handheld Game : Device 6

16. Best Voice Acting : Jed Kelly (The Night of the Rabbit)

17. Best Art Direction : The Night of the Rabbit

Captures the whimsy of old childhood fables perfectly. Loved it.

18. GOTY! : The Stanley Parable

It has the adventure line, after all.
