The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences announced the nominees for the D.I.C.E. Awards, and Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn received quite a few.
Horizon certainly deserves it, but seeing only one nomination (and only for their specific genre) for Persona 5 and NieR: Automata makes me shake my head so hard. Neither of them nominated for best music but COD gets a nod? Makes you wonder what those panelists actually played.
Well yeah, I'm also disappointed by how often Yakuza 0 gets shafted, people barely talk about that game.
If Horizon wins this GOTY award, it will only need 116 more GOTY awards to catch up with Zelda. https://gotypicks.blogspot....
I dont think there's a scale in existence that could measure the bitterness seeping from you.
How many more for Zelda to catch up to Uncharted or The Last of Us?
Who cares the fact is horizon has won both critic and user goty awards and has been nominated at all the big award shows which is an achievement. Butt hurt fanboys like yourself can't change that so how about you go get a life and quit sweating how many awards horizon has won
Are you really that salty ?
bro, salt is leaking from your comment
Why are some Zelda fans so insecure about this topic? Like...good for Zelda. Great. But are you trying to convince us or yourself?
@xHeavYx according to that blog:7 more to match uncharted 4 and 100 more to match the last of us.It will probably pass both of them though,but then again,all three games are great
Such technical showcase in all areas is well deserved of the nomines. GG GG
Nier: Automata and Persona 5 each got a single nomination, and in the same category. Neither even got a nomination for soundtrack. Hmm. Highly questionable.
Yeah, that is weird. Nier and Persona 5 st's were amazing.
Star Wars BF2 got more nominations than either :/. It seems apart from the Nintendo developed ones, Japanese games are thrown a bone when it can’t be avoided, like best RPG, or best fighting game, ... etc.
Shame really. PC is getting slot of Japanese games this past year. PC getting love from publishers lately.
Glad to see Horizon in almost every category! If it wins any or not, I'm just happy to see it get nominated!
My GOTG so far.
Absolutely agree. The pinnacle of game making so far this gen. The Frozen Wilds, an add-on bests any other game on any other platform this gen as well.
I agree with both of you.
Nah, I still think Bloodborne or even Mario Odyssey is mine. Those 2 games are just amazing.
And yet, you still want Horizon Zero Dawn to be shunned from others. I love Bloodborne and it was my GOTY 2015.
And i respect that, that is why i said "my" GOTG.
@UCForce What are you talking about?
I kinda agree, but then I think about how many hours I still pour into Rocket League, even if it's a relatively simple game. HZD is certainly my favorite game of this gen across the action/adventure/RPG-ish genres (i.e. everything from Uncharted 4 to Witcher 3 to Bloodborne). And that is saying a lot, as this gen has been great.
Agree, its great that big AAA and small games can co-exist together and deliver great gameplay.
Zelda will win GOTY
Sad if true.
sorry not this time. the voting isn't done by fanboys
So Horizon definitely won't win then.
Exactly. So as i was saying. Zelda will win GOTY and many other awards.
Sorry to Zelda fans but played the new one on my brothers switch and found it to be dull . Now horizon to me was way better I guess it’s the talking between characters also cutscenes and story that got me hooked in horizon. Something Zelda never had much of in my opinion. Aloy was 1 million times more interesting than Link .
The lengthy cut scenes is what helps make horizon so crap. When I buy a game I want to play the game, if I wanted a movie to just sit back and watch then Id go on Netflix or go cinema.
@DwightSchrute01 Excuse me ? Horizon Zero Dawn is an open world action adventure/RPG.
No mention of Persona 5, Xenoblade 2, or Nier Automata for best music composition seems highly questionable when you mention CoD WWII. Mor Ardain's daytime theme by itself is better than anything in WWII's OST, lol.
Horizon deserves to win all 10 categories.
You really think Aloy was better acted then Senua? No chance.
Well, HZD and Aloy have been praised by critics and gamers. Senua is great, too.
Yeah I do . Hellblade was a great game and Senua well acted,but the game was too way boring . I mean it was the same thing over and over . Story and acting was good not excellent. The only reason it got high praise was for the mental heath topics that it depicted . At the end of the day it was a OK game nothing special
@gamesmaster We aren't talking about the game over all, we are talking about the character specifically and Senua was acted wayyyy better. But personally I enjoyed Hellblade way may anyway. Horizon just felt too familiar and open world generic.
Well deserved! Long live single player games
best videogame of 2017 hands down!. Its 2018 and I still am in awe from its awesomeness
IDK Nier Automata should have been nominated for best story and/or at least best ost. The journey leading up to ending [E] is something I'll never get to experience again.
It is a technical achievement. Game is gorgeous.
One of my favourite games ever! Great job Guerrilla, you deserve it. Also, it’s Chloe Frazer, not Frasier. Get my girl’s name right, Abriael :)
Let's hope it picks up some awards
