Today the Spike VGA's announced their nominees for all categories. The game of the year nominees include Assassins Creed 3, Dishonored, Mass Effect 3, Journey and the Walking Dead
Anyone else surprised that Halo 4 and Borderlands 2 didn't make the cut? However, all of these nominees for GOTY are extremely great games. I actually want walking dead to win this My hopes GOTY-Walking Dead Studio of the year-Gearbox Xbox 360 game- Halo 4 PS3 game- Assassins Creed 3 Wii Game- Xenoblade chronicles PC Game- Guild Wars Shooter- Borderlands 2 Action Adventure-Assassins Creed 3 RPG- Xenoblade Multiplayer- Borderlands 2 Not a fan of sports or driving games Best Song- Tears Max Payne Best Score- Journey (surprised AC3 didn't make it) Graphics- Halo 4 Independant game- Journey Handheld game- LBP vita Performance by female- Jennifer Hale as Shepard Performace by Male- Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack Adapted video game- Walking dead DLC-Mechromancer Downloadable game- Walking dead Most anticipated- Bioshock infinite Best Character- Between Connor or Claptrap... but mostly claptrap
I'm surprised PlayStation All Stars is not up there for best PS3 game. It may be because it's not out yet but, there are 2 Wii U games up there and they come out 2 days before PSASBR. GOTY- Walking Dead Studio of the year- TellTale Games Xbox 360 game- Halo 4 PS3 game- Journey Wii Game- Xenoblade chronicles PC Game- Shooter- Halo 4 Action Adventure- Sleeping Dogs (I might be alone) RPG- Multiplayer- Borderlands 2 Sports- SSX Team Sport - Madden 13 (The engine makes a difference) Driving- Forza Horizon with NFS making a close second Best Song- Journey or Sound Shapes Best Score- Journey Graphics- Assassin's Creed 3 Independant game- Fez Fighting- Tekken Tag Handheld game- Gravity Rush Performance by female- Performace by Male- Adapted video game- Walking dead DLC- Dawnguard Downloadable game- Journey Social Game - Draw Something Most anticipated- The Last Of Us Best Character-
Halo 4 didn't get nominated for GOTY? Wow, I thought at least one Xbox exclusive would win this gen. Maybe next year though. I'm voting for Assassins Creed 3.
Looking at my disagrees, compared to yours... our lists are essentially the same... except I though AC3 was the best action adventure game and PS3 game... yet I get disagreed to oblivion Why?
If Mario wins best handheld game I will not be happy. Gravity Rush deserves it for being original and amazing. LittleBigPlanet is also really good though. Also where's PS All Stars?
I saw this a while ago. And I was surprised Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and Borderlands 2 didn't make the list. Then I looked at the comments and got some of the best laughs ever......fans & fanboys you kill me. It's Spike's GOTY awards. They choose the nominees, gamers vote on them. If it was the gamers GOTY then we could include anything we wanted. That being said I'm hoping for The Walking Dead, Journey, or Dishonored. AC3 and ME3 are good, but I hoping something bold and new wins it.
Why all stars? Its should be in most anticipated.
I'm just glad to see Journey getting so much attention. It was my pick for GOTY when it came out, and is still my pick for GOTY today. Truly an amazing game. 343 is my clear pick for studio of the year... they have done a fantastic job with Halo 4. Congrats to all the nominees. I think it's interesting how there is a "Vita has no games/is dead" articles every 5 seconds on this site, but 3 or the 4 nominees in the handheld section are Vita exclusives. Put that in your pipe and smoke it naysayers.
"Studio of the year-Gearbox" "Best Character- Between Connor or Claptrap... but mostly claptrap" Please don't. "PS3 game- Assassins Creed 3" Just no. "I wouldn't want it to go to the Walking Dead, come on it's good but not that good" Just when I thought it couldn't get worse.
Oh I'm sorry I have a different opinion than you. Didn't know your opinion was the only right one... I'll remember next time @blactric below Ummm ok? I don't understand how I was presenting my opinion as a fact When I say I hope walking dead is goty, that's my opinion When a game wins it, then it is a fact
Implying that I was presenting those as facts... Wait, weren't you actually doing THAT yourself? Stay mad.
Everything else fair enough except your GOTY I wouldn't want it to go to the Walking Dead, come on it's good but not that good Journey - Mostly because as a PSN game it's stunning, it's like art packaged into a video game Dishourned - Mostly because it's a new fresh IP and it fuels hope for a sequel. For the studio I would have to go with GearBox, they made Borderlands 2 and since that didn't get nominated for GOTY it would be nice for them to win. Female Voice Actress....has to be Cortana, I'm sick of people going on about tme mo cap actress, Jen Taylor is the one who brings her to life. Dameon Clarke HAS to get best Actor, he was hillarious in Borderlands 2 as Jack....sorry Max Jeez theres a lot of Walking Dead stuff...I hope people don't just pick it based on the fact its downloadable game and it would be weird seeing a downloadable game win so many awards. TT games will just continue making point and click games then, I want to see them do other things. Claptrap has to win best character, that COD character better not win, I have no idea why he is there most COD characters are the same personality wise. Maybe one year, when Uncharted 4 comes out Nolan will FINALLY win an award. I have to admit the choices this year seem a little funny. Kind of poor in my opinion
We're at the point now where the line between downloadable games and retail games is becoming irrelevant. In the infancy of XBL and PSN, they were neat little snippets of content and nothing but simplistic fun. Today we have downloadable games that surpass retail releases in terms of graphics, gameplay, depth, but ultimately in the quality of the experience. Lets face it, the experience has always been at the core of why we love video games. Why segment that?
Hopefully journey wins. The other nominees are good but journey was just breath taking and a great experience in the first play through. That game is a gem and shows that gaming can be art.
i'm voting Journey as best graphics, best PS3 game and overall GOTY. The Last of Us is my most anticipated game next year, i was considering GTA5 but Naughty dog is Naughty dog
The Walking Dead? They can't be bothered to master a simple technical detail like inverted aim but let's give them GOTY. No, just no.
@Morganfell We should be picking game of the year based off of the emotional connection and the enjoyment we get out of the game not based off of obscure technical details.. I've always agreed with you and had your back through the years but I feel we shouldnt scrutinize details like that when considering GOTY.. Please don't take this as an attack just voicing my opinion.. Peace :)
OMG dude, why do you care about disagrees? Only a bunch of fanboy kids downvoted/disagreed with you because...well, they're fanboys. Don't put too much esteem into the N4G community, you're better than that, bro...you're better than that.
My choices will be: Game of the Year: Dishonored (Why not Borderlands 2 or Darksiders 2 nominated?!?) Studio of the Year:Gearbox Software Best Xbox 360 Game:Halo 4 Best PlayStation 3 Game: Journey Best Wii / Wii U Game: Xenoblade Chronicles Best PC Game: XCOM: Enemy Unknown Best Shooter: Borderlands 2 Best Action Adventure Game: Darksiders II/Sleeping Dogs (Tie for me) Best RPG: Xenoblade Chronicles Best Multiplayer Game: Guild Wars 2 Best Team Sports Game:FIFA 13 Best Driving Game:F1 2012 Best Graphics:Dishonored Best Independent Game:Dust: An Elysian Tail Best Performance by a Human Male:Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack (Borderlands 2) Best Adapted Videogame: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Best Downloadable Content:Mechromancer Pack - Borderlands 2 Most Anticipate Game:Bioshock Infinite
This show is a joke. When Gears 3 wasn't nominated last year, I called Bullsh**! Sold more than all exclusives by a mile, played to death, had more options than any game period, & was absolutely fantastic! Now Halo 4! This is some lol crap here. Whatever, I can play some of the Halo 4 modes Ive yet to play because I'm still playing in the super campaign (during the show). Now playing Legendary, then on to something else.
Why isn't Borderlands 2 should be gunning for GOTY.
because it's not really goty material ?
Really im not a pc gamer?My steam ID is TheAssKicker1223 and my ps3 id is Fries1223 and my ps vita Id is TheAsskicker1223 Lets go bitch All i said that both the 360 and the ps3 where holding it back.How am i a fanboy?For saying they where equal lol? wtf Also blocking someone is the pussy way of saying "i lost the argument" :)
I'm mostly a console gamer but Guild Wars 2 shatters all the nominated GOTY games. AC3 is my most disappointed game of the year.
These are stupid... Borderlands 2, Assasins Creed, Journey, and Halo 4, and Walking Dead are just gonna win everything because there's no other options. Seriously wtf Journey is nominated for like every category i mean i loved it and voted for it but still haha. We should be able to vote for nominees xD Hell the games in the "Best PS3" category are like the exact same as the games in the "Best 360" category xD That's ridiculous. Oh well who cares lmao
I'm only watching for some new premieres/trailers.
There are some rumblings that Infamous 3 will make an appearance :)
Hiphop Gamer mentioned that in one of his videos. I'm waiting to see some new info about The Last Of Us. And any new IPs from the big three. I know it's not E3, but one game from at least one of them is good.
That better be LOGICAL!!!!!
Hot damn! This is the best post I've read from you all week.
hopefully they show fallout 4. if that game is shown it will become my most anticipated game over GTA V
YES. Trust me, I'm anticipating a new Fallout game so much. BETHESDA. DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR ONCE AND ANNOUNCE A NEW FALLOUT GAME. I DEMAND IT. See, if I don't demand it, then they don't give it. But, you know, if I, a single person on the internet, demands it, then that means they shall listen.
It's what I'm most interested in seeing too. Award shows have never been my thing but at least VGA knows what gamers want: more games ;) Looking forward to seeing both some announced titles as well as hopefully some new ones. Especially PS3 as first/second party have a lot of unannounced projects but also something from MS... other than Judgement, XBLA, or Kinect as those are really main exclusives we "know" about for '13. If they aren't waiting to announce next gen anyways, I'd like
