DAMN! Journey took almost every award it was nominated for except for 2.

PSASBR being best fighting game is surprising.

Dont get how paper mario won best handheld when it was up against Uncharted:GA,Gravity rush,RE:REV and Sound shapes.

God damn it... I made a vow to only play journey once since I believed another playthrough would cheapen the experience.. but I want to play it again now

It doesn't cheapen it, don't worry.

majie, I wouldn't say it's surprising, it's one of the best fighting games released in the past few years.

I love PSASBR, but I think Persona 4 Arena should have won fighting goty, hands down (and NO it's not because i'm an obvious Persona fan (my avatar), but because it's a great fighter. The storytelling was weak, so as a persona fan it disappointed in the category. But as a fighter, I was hooked!)

The comment section from the live feed was hilarious. Everyone couldn't believe Journey was taking home so many awards. Congrats to thatgamecompany for their work on Journey. It truly is an amazing experience that should not go unnoticed in the gaming community.

Also a big thank you to Sony Santa Monica studios for backing Journey and actually wanting to see this project come alive and see its full potential.

Congrats to all the other titles that were nominated and awarded. Cheers! :D

I didn't watch it, but have seen quite a few complaints about it on twitter, about it being a bit MTV-like. How was it?

Journey winning awards was not surprising, its a very creatively good game. And yay for Superbot, their awesome game won an award :D I guess this will be me being biased but I really feel like Gravity Rush should've won the handheld category :L

agreed Gravity Rush should have won best game i played on handheld last year, and a refreshing breath of air it was.
r21  +   1023d ago
Exactly. A game thats not like any other I've played and yet it lost to a Mario sequel :L

Maybe DICE did not want people to tag them as pro-Sony even if Sony had the best know politics.

just ordered the journey collectors edition lets see how good this game is =)

I want to tell you that before you play the game you should clear your mind of all expectations. With all this praise you kind of asume things about the game and thats no a great way to go about Journey. Journey is best when you just let it take you into its world.

Wait, how can Walking Dead win downloadable GOTY ahead of Journey, yet Journey wins GOTY ahead of Walking Dead?
WeAreLegion  +   1023d ago
These were votes from over 20,000 people in the industry. So, it's possible for related awards to go to two completely different games. Ridiculous, I know...
grailly  +   1023d ago
awards always do this. it looks dumb but otherwise the same game would get every award. for example, if a multiplat wins game of the year, logically it should also be ps3 and 360 game of the year, but in those categories they tend to favor the exclusives.
Aceman18  +   1023d ago
hahaha yea i was scratching my head at that also.
WeAreLegion  +   1023d ago
My only upsets were Gravity Rush not winning Portable GOTY and The Unfinished Swan not winning Innovative GOTY.
black911  +   1023d ago
Journey Cleaned Up. Just like the Raiders Are gonna Do Next Year!
SAE  +   1023d ago
Far cry 3 was amazing. Why it didn't won anything ?. lol
Mocat  +   1023d ago
because they are full of crap.

check this out : PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale wins best fighter when the the other nominees were Persona 4 Arena, Soul Calibur V, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Street Fighter X Tekken.

Yeah right.

Journey has destroyed almost all of the games ! congrats to thatgamecompany !
TuxedoMoon  +   1023d ago
Journey wins game of the year, but not Downloadable game of the year....what?
Wrightylfc88  +   1023d ago
These are a farce these awards, the walking dead is by far the city! Journey doesn't even compare to it an how can journey win online multiplayer when the online just lets U join someone elses game?? Didn't deserve to win all of them!
Wrightylfc88  +   1023d ago
walking dead is by far the best I meant lol
BanBrother  +   1023d ago
Some of these awards were stupid, just stupid. A game like Mass Effect winning best RPG is unfair to the primarily RPG based games. So basically, if your game is an RPG, Hack n slash, action, adventure, horror, racing, online multiplayer simulator all in one, it can win limitless awards.

Stupid, some games should just be put into the category they belong in. Is visual engineering best graphics? If so, how the f*** did CoD get nominated lol?

God Blasted I love XCom
