Do you agree with the Spike VGX winners?

GotGame: So now that we have the full list of award winners of the Spike VGX, we beg the question: are you in agreement or not? (Industry, VGX)

-Foxtrot  +   541d ago
I think the only ones I disagree with are

Most Anticipated
Best Soundtrack and

I feel like the best Soundtrack was only given to GTAV because they were there doing a GTAV music show, how can you have the best soundtrack when your just taking real songs from different artisits and putting them together, a real game soundtrack should of won this. I also felt like this was half of the reason why it got GOTY...because people from Rockstar were there to collect it. The other reasons because of sales/brand name

As for most anticipated all those other games look more appealing then TitanFall.

Couldn't have said it better myself......
aside from the show blowing overall.

Quite honestly I wouldn't want to be associated with that show. Seriously a show that LITERALLY is between generations where the announcements should be OVERFLOWING (IT WAS A 3 HOUR EVENT!!) were surprisingly inexistent.

Probably because the companies saw how terrible it was going to turn out.

Heck I would be embarrassed to win ANYTHING from that joke. I feel bad for Naughty Dog, Irrational, Rockstar and the others who won :( Thats what is so sad :(

Edit: And OMG.....freaking Titanfall (Nothing against the game) If Geoff said Titanfall one more time I was going to smash my TV. I swear thats the one thing Joel Mchale got right. I almost assumed he was going to blow Vince just to get a fix of the game. He could NOT. SHUT. UP. ABOUT. IT.

I know this show should of been the biggest ever since they could of revealed a ton of new games for next gen...hell even tec demos would of done so instead of showing off their games they could of given us a preview of their new engines.

Dragon Age 3
Uncharted 4
Guerilla Games new IP
Mass Effect 4
Sony Santa Monica new IP
Fallout 4
Last of Us DLC
Last Guardian (unlikely but still)
Half life 3 (highly unlikely but still)
The Order 1886
Kingdom Hearts 3
Final Fantasy 15
Heavenly Sword 2 maybe
Crash Bandicoot

Any other brand new IP's

A lot of was missing in action. I expect E3 next year to be amazing and packed with games because usually E3 is just a place where they show off already announced games with new demos or bigger trailers. Since the VGX showed hardly nothing, with an indie title being the big game there I expect E3 to be AMAZING.

Don't forget that 3 people from the jury were from Polygon...
GTA V is a great game, but TLOU story is told way better (in my opinion of course)
irepbtown  +   541d ago
The Last of Us should definitely have won GOTY. GTA V was great, bags of fun, however as -Foxtrot mentioned, it was Rockstar's name that won them these awards.
Razmossis  +   541d ago
I can't complain about GOTY going to GTAV over TLOU, I personally couldn't decide for myself who should win it, imo, if they could go halfsies with the award, I'd have been okay with that, just 2 incredible games.

But. How did Assassins Creed win best action adventure???
GTAV is an (open world) action adventure game, and it was 'the best' game of the year. So if the 'best' game of the year is an action adventure title, logic dictates it is the best action adventure title too. No?
abzdine  +   541d ago
most anticipated games for me:

inFamous: SS

GOTY: The Last of Us
Best handheld game: Tearaway (haven't played Zelda yet)
Best surprise 2013: Knack

End of story
MestreRothN4G  +   541d ago
GTA V is the best game of all, they say.
But TLOU got the "best PS3 game".
And AC4 the "best action/adventure".

How on earth can this make sense?

I mean real sense, not crap VGX sense...

It's odd. Why didn't R* win studio of the year then? Personally I think it's lame GTAV won soundtrack when TLOU and others had amazing composed scores.

Also I wanted to see inFamous get a nod for most anticipated. I don't think Titanfall is the hotness it's made out to be
malokevi  +   541d ago
Didn't watch the show. Game shows are notoriously lame. I always pick up the highlights the next day. Besides... Saturday night? Who comes up with this stuff?

I was pleased by all of: Titanfall, No Mans Sky, Witcher 3, Quantum Break and The Division. Even just getting glimpses of all of these was enough to keep me excited for what comes next.

I heard the show was crummy, but am happy to have seen more from some of my most anticipated. Disappointing by the lack of Halo 5... but glad that they are saving it for a more credible industry event, or maybe even a stand-alone reveal.

Overall, happy! People who are disappointed are the ones who set themselves up for it.
Goro  +   541d ago
Best soundtrack was definitely TLOU
DarthZoolu  +   541d ago
Are fanboys about to start the hate train for Titanfall? Probably. I don't get why some people hate online multiplayer, its the best challenge! A.I. just doesn't excite me as much as humans. I like single player but it is definitely second to multiplayer IMO. I crush single player in the HARDEST difficulty every time. Last time I had trouble in a single player was a single platform jump in Ninja GD Black. Also it was almost hard to beat a Handy Man with a pistol only in a small area. I think every gamers skill level plays alot into what type of games they like.
-Foxtrot  +   541d ago
So if you don't like the look of a generic looking, same old FPS with a few new things which have bee done to death in other games like Wall running in BRINK, Jetpacks in Halo Reach and Mechs in...well a few games, then your a fanboy

Please...I don't understand the the hype of this and this was BEFORE it was a Microsoft exclusive. It was like one of my first comments the second it was revealed.

The reason why most A.I suck in games is probably because those games the dev waste their time on multiplayer.
DarthZoolu  +   541d ago
@Foxtrot so what do you think is most anticipated? I thought Titanfall was the clear winner. I can't think of anything I want more right now.
-Foxtrot  +   541d ago
Destiny - Looks fun as hell and is expanding the FPS genre with this massive open world to play on with other players and even by your self if you want

South Park: The Stick of Truth - Looks hilarious and even if it wasn't south park it looks like it's a pretty good RPG.

Watch_Dogs - Looks fantastic, hacking your way round obstacles in a massive open world map, where it's not just about shooting and going in places guns blazing.

Anything but TitanFall.

I would comment on Witcher 3 but I haven't played the other two.

Why get excited for a multiplayer only game which will get old fast when you have other games which look massive and will get you entertained for weeks

wastedcells  +   540d ago
I love GTA5... A lot, but the last of us was GOTY in my opinion. With out a doubt. I also agree that titan fall was a weak choice for most anticipated considering what else is coming in 2014 and that titan fall is an online multiplayer only game.
RyanRBates  +   541d ago
I was actually surprised Destiny didn't win Most Anticipated either, though Titanfall does look fun as heck.
Ramon3MR  +   541d ago
I actually loved the GTA V soundtrack, but that kind of music, especially the older school stuff is my cup of tea.

As for Game of the Year, I feel like it should've gone to The Last of Us.

aquamala  +   541d ago
yes the best game won goty
GodGinrai  +   541d ago
TitanFall...its all that! I have played it :)..and I been counting down the days since!
WeAreLegion  +   541d ago
GOTY for me was The Last of Us. With that panel, TLoU didn't stand a chance. :/

Most anticipated for me is inFamous: Second Son. I would never be more excited for a multi-player focused game than for something with a great story. Titanfall is going to be very fun, but it won because bros are a massive chunk of the market.
king_george  +   541d ago
Agreed. The Last of Us is the true game of the year. Hell its even a contender for game of the generation in my opinion

And LOL at the disagrees on here everytime someone says something negative about GTA5. Its a good game but alot more people (real gamers that dont care about console wars BS) say TLoU is better
Transporter47  +   541d ago
TLOU is GOTY, I played all 3 that i thought were the best ones, Bioshock Infinite, GTAV, TLOU and I can tell you out of those 3 TLOU is the one that still lingers in my brain about how amazing it was.
rashada07  +   541d ago
I think the "Best sound-track" should be split up- Best original score and best sound track.. the former being self explanatory and the latter for compilations of pop culture tracks (i.e. GTA V's music)
TheGamingArt  +   541d ago
TitanFall does not win most anticipated in my book. I know sooo many people that would agree with my statement. That's the biggest thing I disagree with.
IcicleTrepan  +   541d ago
I can't wait to see how you justify your logic when Titanfall comes out and everyone but you are playing it.
DarthZoolu  +   541d ago
So what is most anticipated? Because all the gamers I know PC AND CONSOLE want it really bad. We all play multiplayer pretty heavy tho, we are all 1.3 or higher in K/D for every multiplayer (worth playing). Destiny looks fun too, but it doesn't make my blood rise. I hope Destiny is Hard, I don't want to play a mmo thats nerfed to hell so everybody can play it. Many people play MMO's but a ton of them have never raided.
WeAreLegion  +   541d ago
Lol. This comment is going on /r/cringeworthy.
Corpser  +   541d ago
Rockstar should have won studio if the year, other than that the others are good picks
bryanm  +   541d ago
Absolutely do not agree with Grand Theft Auto winning game of the year, it was perhaps the best game of the year but it was not the greatest game of the year (if you get what I mean).
Grand Theft Auto 5 was a lot of fun, but The Last of Us was an experience and I really feel it should have won.
SeraphimBlade  +   541d ago
Gone Home taking Best Indie Game. Papers Please, Route Zero and Stanley Parable all felt like they were doing something creative to really push the medium forward. Gone Home just took the monsters and puzzles out of an Amnesia mod. Like I said in my blog, my problem's not that it didn't have typical gameplay, it's that it wasn't truly interactive.
Corpser  +   541d ago
All the nominees for best indie game are exclusive to PC, any more doubt what platform is best for indie games? :)
SonyStyled  +   541d ago
i never expected any sony game to be largely praised by spike. spike is owned by viacom, which is a close partner with microsoft. they did give the last of us best ps3 game. however i think game of the year should come down between the best ps3 game and 360 game. i just remember in 2009 killzone 2 was excluded from the goty least even though it holds a 92 on metacritic. it comes down to that whole close collaboration with microsoft thing once again
WeAreLegion  +   541d ago
Uncharted 2 won though.
CocoWolfie  +   541d ago
did anyone see how the last of us was treated? they showed killing and headchopping and it just felt like that was purposely done when you rewatch it :/
Evil_Abed  +   541d ago
Yes, very much. Esp goty, most anticipated and racing goty.

People tend to forget that most anticipated isn't decided by the gamers, not journos. But most do agree...
GDDR6_2014  +   541d ago
The only people that are not happy are the vocal minority Sony fanboys that only want their exclusive to win, but what else do you expect from them? gTA 5 will sweep these goty's
IcicleTrepan  +   541d ago
It's like watching the VMAs and wondering why Britney Spears won again. It's because it sold many units. That's all these awards shows are generally about. They give a nod to the little guy to make it look like they're balanced but in the end it's about AAA titles that sold ridiculous numbers and made people filthy rich.
king_george  +   541d ago
The Last of Us > GTA5

Im no fanboy as i play all consoles but the reason why many people are upset is because alot of them see The Last of Us as the better game. So when u say that the only people upset are fanboys ur wrong bud.
lilmetal  +   541d ago
I kinda feel like the Best Playstation/Xbox Game categories should be limited to exclusives.
Nerdmaster  +   541d ago
Gone Home is the best PC game? What?? It wasn't bad, but it was certainly far from the best game.
cell989  +   541d ago
The Last Of Us did deserve GOTY award
KratosSaveUs  +   541d ago
I disagree with most anticipated and GOTY. Goty should've been The Last of Us easily.
Pintheshadows  +   540d ago
The Stanley Parable should have won best indie. Gone Home was decent but didn't come close to what The Stanley Parable. Or Papers Please for that matter.
Section8  +   540d ago
The awards this year were a fucking joke.
SynestheticRoar  +   540d ago
Hell F@#king no. I don't agree with the VGX. That show was dog shit.
