The Game Awards is fast approaching with some of greatest games of 2014 nominated. Here are 5 games that surprisingly missed out nominations for the award.
None of those games deserve to be Nominated, If any game is being unfairly excluded its DKTF. i say unfairly because they would never let a 2D platformer win GOTY, despite being at the top of the genre.
I'm inclined to agree. Absolutely none of the games on that list deserve any kind of positive recognition. And I love the inFamous games. All of the games on that list (aside from Second Son) had some sort of controversy surrounding it so this article is just trying to be contrarian.
DKCTF is one of the best platformers of all time. It is telling that we don't even have best platformer of the year at TGA. It honestly bull****. DKCTF should have at least been nominated for best soundtrack. Shovel Knight would have also been an excellent contender for best platformer. Kieghley must have been embarrassed by the Cranky Kong announcement which is why it wasn't nominated. Along with No Man's Sky, it was the best new announcement from that trainwreck.
Most disappointing games category, I agree.
I'm sorry, but I don't agree with a single game on that list. I'm not saying that they're all bad, but I don't believe any of them are truly GOTY material.
That SHOULD HAVE been nominated for GOTY
I know what they're saying, but if a game, "Should've been", nominated for GOTY then by default that means it's GOTY material. I'm just saying that I don't feel as though any of them are GOTY material, so in turn, I don't agree that they should've been nominated. I actually enjoyed ISS and Watch Dogs, but they don't garner GOTY attention from me. This is just my opinion, though.
Nobody takes these awards seriously anyway. People just sit through the boring awards to see the premiere trailers. The "awards" are just fluff. It's best to skip the whole thing altogether because they're always bad and just watch the trailers when it's posted online. This way you can skip all of the crap and get right to the good stuff.
oh really remember GameSpot last year. Zelda A Link Between Worlds won GOTY Last of Us, GTA V, and others big games in 2013 fans rage because it didn't win.
Even Elder Scrolls Online players wouldn't say it's worthy of game of the year, even in a genre only basis
Infamous was mediocre Assassin's Creed was broken Elder Scrolls online i don't know of Rocksmith came out at an odd time Watch_Dogs was fun.
Donkey kong tropical freeze deserve a mention more then any other game on that dumb list. (Sorry for being so harsh with dumb).
Ubisoft's Madden series are generally not GOTY material. But they got kids to feed
