that boxart looks very nice.
I'd pick this up, but I've already bought everything already (all the dlc), so it'd be a waste to buy this.
Though it could make good for a present.

The game didnt get a single GOTY award.

Seriously what the fuck lol

This is Borderlands 1 all over again

It didn't win the VGA GOTY, but it did win the VGA Best 360 game. I'm sure it won some other obscure site's GOTY awards as well.

So, it's not "THE" GOTY, but it was somewhere, so it's not completely idiotic to call it a GOTY version.

Yea how come every game has a GOTY edition without actually being that.

That is like giving yourself a nick name.

Yeah since Uncharted 2 started that trend (I think.)
Everyone wants to not call it anything but "GOTY edition"
Y_5150  +   770d ago
My bad it was Half Life was the original GOTY. :P

Much better deal than the limited edition I bought for $100 at launch :/

No regrets though, love the game.

"GOTY" certainly gets thrown around like it's nothing these days.

I was surprised to read this as I didn't see Halo 4 receive any GOTY awards. I saw it pick up some accolades for best Xbox Game but no goty. After some digging though I did find that Machinima gave it goty honors. I did't know they had their own awards.

Didnt game informer too?

Game Informer gave GOTY to Mass Effect 3.

DId Halo 4 get any GOTY awards?? I think Borderlands 2 /The walking dead and XCOM: Enemy Unknown got more GOTY awards than Halo 4

This game doesn't deserve the Goty name.

I think it won several as I recalled including this GOTY from machinimas


Anyways, glad they are releasing this sweet package at a sweet price. I already have them all so I wouldn't need it but for new players, this is a great time to catch up on Halo 4 and the upcoming free Halo 3 on XBL before next year's Halo 5.

Kinda of sad how I still never beat the game yet, to be honest I'm not into Halo as much anymore. Still a fan though. Might pick this up since I traded Halo 4 months ago. Love the box art.

GOTY Editions get thrown around like nothing these days, even for games that won little or even no GOTY awards. Halo 4 is a prime example. It only got a single GOTY award from Machinima.
