What a lame reason to give a game GOTY.

/bitter

Pebz3630d ago

The game that gave the best gaming experience, despite it's flaws, to the people giving out the awards is a lame reason?

I'd love to hear your definition of a "good game".

RebornSpy3630d ago

It probably has something to do with graphics...

While I don't really agree with their choice, I agree with their reasoning. Experience is always the most important to me.

Serjikal_Strike3630d ago

I've seen both xbox and playstation fans both agree that fable 2 should of not won GOTY!

Anything else but fable 2 should of got it

INehalemEXI3630d ago (Edited 3630d ago )

My definition of GOTY is simple ....the game that I remember enjoying most all year.

I watched that video and sessler just seemed to be trying to plead for hate mail and flaming to stop more then anything hah.

They seemed to have some kind of meeting that led them astray...whatever.

MGS4 wins 4 category's but we had conversations recently of how this would happen or that would happen in fable 2 and it was different for each one of us....OMG GOTY.....Mhmmm....riiiight...

/facepalm

"My definition of GOTY is simple ....the game that I remember enjoying most all year."

Okay, so basically you agree completely with what I said.

I think some of you are forgetting that they are not giving awards based on YOUR experience, but actually theirs. Even if X-play were the only people in the whole world that liked Fable 2, their opinion would still be equally justified.

It's almost as if people demand these awards to be based purely on metacritic (and the likes) scores and sales, rather than the givers opinions.

Also, nowhere did I say I agree (or disagree) with their choice, I only said I agree with the reasoning behind the choice, so I have to wonder where all the disagrees come from.

RebornSpy3630d ago

because it's all based on preference. I'm sure for someone out there, Haze of Too Human is the best game of the year simply because they enjoyed that game the most. It's not our place to tell them whether or not the game sucks. If they enjoy playing it, that's all that is important.

My game of the year is probably Gears 2 or GTA IV. There's still a bunch of games(Resistance 2, LBP, Fallout 3, etc.) that I will probably play over the break, though. This year has so many great games!

evrfighter3630d ago

Shouldn't a GOTY title be able to take the crown in it's own category before being crowned King of The Hill?

Using common sense logic the GAME.of.The.Year. should also be RPG of the year right? Doesn't matter if he's straight or gay he's a wackjob for picking GOTY for this reason.

Sure you can use the argument. It was THEIR game of the year as they couldn't put it down and played for hours on end...

But that argument fails when RPG of the Year is taken by Fallout 3. They obviously weren't playing Fable 2 as an RPG game. One could only assume Adam Sessler was fap-fapping to his in-game spouse. Must have been some GREAT times with Fable 2.

If that's the case. Then just come out with it...I'd probably apologize for my statement.

Sarcasm3629d ago

"I think some of you are forgetting that they are not giving awards based on YOUR experience, but actually theirs. "

That being said, then there shouldn't be the label of "GOTY" if everyone has a different opinion.

They should just have Best Genre categories and leave it at that. Because let's be honest, there's not just "ONE" ultimate game that rules all.

Cenobia3629d ago

This is probably just a conspiracy theory of mine, since Fable 2 was a good game, but I feel like they gave it GOTY just so they could have Molyneux on to talk about his next projects (even though he ended up not revealing anything).

Maybe I'm just angry that LBP wasn't even nominated though. I mean wtf is that?

It started when they all got their checks from shamesoft.

Your life is a shallow pool of self hate isnt it?

Adam must have seriously sold off his sentiments to say what he just said in this video.

Bias is never impermeable, especially with the freak, pro-360 crowd we see at N4G regularly.

They'll call a great game like Resistance 2 a "flop" just because some no-name source gave it a 4/10 and reduced its METACRITIC average down to a 8.9 from a 9.1. I bet those idiots don't know anything competent about arithmetic.

That was the most confusing explanation ever. "It's not necessarily the best game but it has that magic that put it just ahead of all the other." WTF does that mean?

bviperz3630d ago

He's talking about fairy dust.

INehalemEXI3630d ago (Edited 3630d ago )

Thats what im saying ...WTF is this non tangible crap that makes a game GOTY...He basically saying we know its crazy but its our show and this is how we decide...ugh.

The way he says...I did'nt care to quick travel...Like its a big deal thats nothing new lmao. You could of done the same thing in the first fable.

Sarcasm3629d ago

"magic that put it just ahead of all the other"

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so that's what they call it!

Microsoft's money is actually called Magic!

lol I kid I kid

Magic_The_Celt3630d ago
