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.

Nyxus307d ago

Well yeah, I'm also disappointed by how often Yakuza 0 gets shafted, people barely talk about that game.

YodaCracker307d ago

If Horizon wins this GOTY award, it will only need 116 more GOTY awards to catch up with Zelda.


Why o why307d ago

I dont think there's a scale in existence that could measure the bitterness seeping from you.

xHeavYx307d ago

How many more for Zelda to catch up to Uncharted or The Last of Us?

Dark_Knightmare2307d ago

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 ?

leoms307d ago

bro, salt is leaking from your comment

frostypants306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

Why are some Zelda fans so insecure about this topic? Like...good for Zelda. Great. But are you trying to convince us or yourself?

Kikutaro306d ago

@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.


AKS307d ago

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.

TomatoDragon307d ago

Yeah, that is weird. Nier and Persona 5 st's were amazing.

moegooner88307d ago (Edited 307d ago )

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.

chrono1205307d ago

Shame really.
PC is getting slot of Japanese games this past year. PC getting love from publishers lately.

Travis3708307d ago

Glad to see Horizon in almost every category! If it wins any or not, I'm just happy to see it get nominated!

morganfell307d ago

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.

UCForce307d ago

I agree with both of you.

Jinger307d ago

Nah, I still think Bloodborne or even Mario Odyssey is mine. Those 2 games are just amazing.

UCForce307d ago

And yet, you still want Horizon Zero Dawn to be shunned from others. I love Bloodborne and it was my GOTY 2015.

GaboonViper307d ago

And i respect that, that is why i said "my" GOTG.

Jinger307d ago


What are you talking about?

frostypants306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

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.

GaboonViper306d ago

Agree, its great that big AAA and small games can co-exist together and deliver great gameplay.
