I actually enjoy BO2 but even I think this is ridiculous. Yes, direct streaming to TwitchTV is a great FEATURE but it isn't necessarily an innovation.

Its a sad state of affairs that COD continues to eclipse the likes of The Journey and other more innovative games not only in sales but in the accolades they receive.

Well, at least we know better right?

Yeah my reaction exactly aside me spitting out water at my screen in shock and it wasnt on accident either....

Up for what... hahahaha.. drinking alcohol and typing often produce nonsense like this. If there was an award for the best franchise for cheaters, poor hit detection etc then yes... COD takes the number 1 spot here.

Wow, that's awards out of the gaming community who don't have a clue about games just go for whats "hot" not whats actually right

I guess it's innovative in the way it has the bullets that shoot around corners lol
SkullBlade169  +   1019d ago
Nah, Resistance: Fall of Man had that earlier.

This is a sign of the end times i'm sure of it.

Black Ops 2 is a great shooter
Single player mode has multiple choice scenarios, the boss is a bad***, and there's different high tech weapons and such (remember the invisible suit, gravity gloves, and the flying squirrel suit?). They let you ride on a horse for gosh sakes (women love their ponies)!

They have bots, (which is a blessing, and I believe every shooter should have) and online play is enjoyable.

Treyarch deserves to be recognized for their efforts.

No it was a copy and paste effort at best.

wha wha di did you mean that????
Baka-akaB  +   1019d ago
Funny thing is none of the things you mentioned were new , so no they dont deserve that particular recognition

Come into the light...broaden your gaming horizons!!!
Jadedz  +   1019d ago
Alright gang
Let's agree to disagree.

I just enjoy Blk ops 2 on the Wii U a lot (mostly because of the off-TV play feature).

Wow. Black ops 2 was worst than black ops 1, and that one was bad too.
Zefros  +   1019d ago
Black ops 2 is a great game, even tough it has outdated graphics. But to call it innovative, that's not true lol. If there is a game that should get thisaward, it's journey or walking dead.

Confirmation that BAFTA haven't got a chuffin clue. #

Oh, and the author of the article wants to take a good long look at every game released in the last twelve months and then perhaps reconsider whether Black ops 2 deserved the award for innovation.

I never said it deserved the award. Only listed reasons towards why it was nominated. My pick (from the nominations) would be Fez

Fair enough, but it did come across as defensive.

Black ops 2 is a good game, it is not innovative in the slightest sense.
Ares84HU  +   1019d ago
That's a bigger surprise than the pope stepping down.....damn, COD getting an innovation award??? WOW, just wow.

Ahahahahaha! Innovation? Engine? This engine was brought by Moses along with 10 commandments,carved in stone. Enough said.
Evil_Ryu  +   1019d ago
the only COD that deserves Game innovation award is MW1
paul1974  +   1019d ago
Yeah! an award to activision for milking people out of their hard earned money, then asking for more from over priced map packs, to poor online hit detection, lag, match making, unbalanced guns etc!

No dedicated servers, broken game launched every year without fail! a company who deleted posts on their forums and bans you for complaining! David Wonderbraa ignoring the complaints and saying it our fault the game does not work and our internet connection the list goes on!

Should read: Game innovation award for making loads of cash for a game that is outdated!

Guys its been nominated it wont win
Reborn  +   1019d ago
If it wins... something is wrong. But that's what happens when you put 'randoms' in charge of awards.
Shadonic  +   1019d ago
If it wins im leaving this planet before Armageddon ill take my chances finding a second earth.
