I agree... Journey is still my pick for GOTY. There were some brilliant games this year, but Journey was the best of the best IMO.

Journey better win everything.

And why is CoD even nominated for Goty each year?

I'm 90% sure you haven't played black ops 2's campaign, hell I'm pretty sure you don't even know what its about. Those that have played it loved the story and the huge number of changes to a franchise that was starting to feel dated. The choices you make have real effects on the world(unlike me3) and the character moments are simply amazing. Also, some people like playing with their friends(zombies) or pwning noobs(multiplayer)

... sorry, but the odds that Call of Duty's as good, all around, as the rest of the games on ANY year's list are slim at best.

JOURNEY! Happy people see what I have seen. The game is a masterpiece :)

They have a "best mobile" but no "best handheld/mobile"?

... Morgan's still there?

Lack of Dishonored for GoTY is one of the reasons why Xplay fails so hard. The people that work at that site are just awful and barely gamers.

I want The Walking Dead for GOTY. It definitely deserves it.

No Farcry 3? Thought it was doing as well or better than Hitman.

And XCOM? Really? Don't get me wrong I really like the game but it was pretty lite on content.
HarryKawkReturns  +   1009d ago
Far Cry probably didn't make their deadline of release dates. That's just my guess!
Godchild1020  +   1008d ago
Far Cry 3 is under best writing.
HarryKawkReturns  +   1009d ago
No love for Max Payne 3? I was hoping for a Best Soundtrack/Original Score nomination or even James McCaffrey as Max for best Male Performance. I CALL SHENANIGANS.
MasterD919  +   1008d ago
Hopefully Halo 4 wins big. I'll miss X-play though.

Wonder what the X-play hosts will do after G4 becomes a shallow and pathetic GQ-esque-wannabe network next year.
