sigh..... skyrim....

Everytime I see that overrated piece of crap nominated for Game of the year, Im disappointed.....

When it wins.... I want to blow my brains out....

Im sickened by the fact that people still support them for releasing an unfinished game to the masses (ps3) and still get critical acclaim.

I pray it does not win a thing...

Dark Souls, Batman, Uncharted, El Shaddai, Zelda or Portal.... please game devs make the right decision

I so agree with you, bro.
I was REALLY disappointed with how Skyrim was given to the PS3 players. Amazing game but because of so many problems, I just can't get myself to play it again.
And then it won GoTY? Why? GoTY should be a game that shouldn't have THAT many gltiches. Uncharted 3 or Portal 2 would've been perfect. Both awesome games and both don't have such disgusting glitches.

Disagree with you on skyrim......
Uncharted 3 and Dark souls devs had their jobs easy to meet the demands on only two specs......skyrim,portal had to satisfy people on all platforms with millions of specs..........
Skyrim could be a game only with all the quests in one city only and people could have bought it as it would still deliver more value than most games out there.....
We shout for innovation but still praise the people who releases the same game time after time and bash those who challenge the limits a
game can achieve.......
And isn't it a bit too much for a device 5 year's old with little RAM to want to run a game that need to store a lot of data every moment......

Ok.... here is the difference between Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Dark Souls and Skyrim.

Those first 3 games when a person plays the game, irregardless of platform will still get the same experience. Sure Uncharted is an exclusive (hell the game dev's did not vote it for GOTY because they I guess they wanted more innovation)

When I played Uncharted, they refined the tech and narrative. I found the gamplay perfect in 2 so I did not complain. Game dev's look for a change in pace, which is why Im excited for the Last of Us...

but anyway back to the point

I do not care how "ambitious" a game is. I do not care how much content a game has. The minimum requirement is that the game MUST WORK!

I mean if you fail that basic requirement, how the hell is your game nominated for GOTY? Sure you can complain a game like Uncharted did not change much.... BUT IT STILL WORKED and was an incredible game, my personal GOTY.

Look at Portal 2. It was advertised that the PS3 version would be the best version out there...

Does that mean 360 and PC owners were left in the dust?

NO!! They still crafted a great game for all consoles!

Zelda had the changes... it took them 5 years

Batman showed how Rocksteady has grown as a dev... and I would be proud if they took the award home even though I had problems with the games story

El Shaddai.. beautiful game

Dark Souls..... the game became a cult classic... and proves that devs dont have to make a game easy to be acsessable

Now what did Bethesda do?

They made a big game with a lot of content

AND IT DOES NOT F**KING WORK ON ONE CONSOLE!

How the hell can you keep doing this for 5 years?

HOW THE HELL CAN YOU NOT HAVE THE BALLS TO SAY OK.... WE MESSED UP?

WE DON'T EVEN GET AN APOLOGY BECAUSE GAMERS aAND THE PRESS ARE BUSY SUCKING BETHESDA'S D**K ALL THE TIME!

Look at Platinum Games and Rockstar.... on their first attempt on making games for the console they screwed up BUT THEY ACCEPTED THEIR MISTAKES !

PLATINUM NOW USES THE PS3 AS ITS LEAD PLATFORM AFTER BAYONETTA (vanquish and MGR(even though im not excited for it)

AND ROCKSTAR LEARNED HOW TO USE THE PS3 TECH AFTER GTA 4 (red dead, LA NOIRE)

NOW WHAT HAS BETHESDA DONE?

NOTHING!

Im not denying Skyrim is a good game.... BUT WHEN THE GAME DOES NOT WORK IT DOES ME NOTHING

I SPENT 60 BUCKS FOR SKYRIM ON PS3... THE SAME PRICE AS SOMEONE WHO BOUGHT IT FOR XBOX.... AND WHEN YOU TELL ME I GET A BROKEN GAME... AND THEY GET A LEGITIMATE GOTY CONTENDOR FOR THE SAME PRICE I SPENT FOR A BROKEN ONE....

THE XBOX 360 IS OLDER THAN THE PS3! THE AGE OF THE CONSOLE DOES NOT MATTER... ITS THE PEOPLE MAKING THE GAMES.

For all the other GOTY nommines did you ever see "Unbelievable Batman Lag on 360?" or "Portal 2 unplayable on PS3?"

OF COURSE IM PISSED!

HELL PEOPLE WHO TORRENTED THE GAME CAN PLAY IT BETTER THAN ME... WHO BOUGHT IT FOR PS3

SO THATS WHY I RAISE 2 MIDDLE FINGERS IN THE AIR AND YELL

FUCK YOU TODD HOWARD!

FUCK YOU BETHESDA!

LEARN HOW TO FUCKING DEVELOP FOR PS3

I DONT CARE IF THIS GETS FLAGGED FOR BAD LANGUAGE

That is why I hope the game dev's make the right decision... if not I give up all hope for gaming and its future

All the other games deserve those awards they have won...

Skyrim deserves none but Best xbox, best pc or best rpg...

That is all

No comment on skyrim but it will be nice to see bastion or portal 2 win game of the year. If not how about Uncharted 3. All in all hopefully the winners are not based on their popularity and hype but on their merits.
