GS: "Despite its late 2017 release date, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds early-access status prevents us from considering it as a potential Game of the Year."
wouldnt win it anyway, but good call.
Completely agree. Finish and release it as a finished game, then it can qualify for such awards.
i dont even know what most of their staff likes anymore.
If the game is really that great, it'll be a nominee for next year.
Seems like something that shouldn't even need to be explained.
Some people complained here on N4G that it wasn't nominated. "Oh it would win!" was what you heard. Yet these same people think the game should not be reviewed because it is in early access. You can't have it both ways. You are either all in or not.
And I agree with their statement, game isn't even finished.
Duhh, this should be the case for anything. If it's status is Early Access, it's like saying a Battlefield 1 beta can qualify for game of the year... That's dumb. I swear some people can act so ridiculous...
As it should be.
But they need to say this? Whats next? A demo can be goty?
Because if it was their it would win over HZD and GameSpot can't have that.
a nintendo game will probably win anyway.
definitely not game of the year, maybe demo of the year
Yeah, if some want to hand out awards for early access then just call it Early Access GOTY.
