An online retailer has listed a Game of the Year Edition, with a possible release date, for the first-person survival-horror game from Techland, Dead Island.
Wow I guess any game can have a GotY Edition these days. I experienced far more bug problems with this game than with Skyrim, and even without them it's not a great game. I'm a huge fan of zombie related entertainment and I felt pretty let down by Dead Island.
It shouldn't have a GOTY edition, but Dead Island is a good game.
It was good but the problem i had was that the developers released the game knowing it had problems and online play was basically unplayable for a while which some people only bought the game to co-op with a friend.
I picked up the game a couple months after launch fro $30, so I missed all the bugs I guess. It may not be GOTY, but it's damn fun. Probably the most fun I've had killing zombies... and this gen I've killed a lot of f#@king zombies :D
I didn't say it wouldn't be good if it was bug free, just not great. It's pretty repetitive and the controls didn't feel quite right, especially when driving. I just expected better, and the bugs definitely ruined the experience for me. Buggiest game I've ever played by far.
Dead island is a good game? I have to disagree with that statement completely, but i'll chalk it up to a difference in tastes/your a dead rising fan. Which didn't like. @guitared Try burn zombie burn or dead nation, 2 of the better zombie games to me.
Angry Birds GOTY EDITION! YEAH!
I haven't experienced any bugs.
Dead island won gotys..... For its trailer, lol.
Dead Island was a GOTY? Wow that game was so glitchy and annoying with online play.
Hm... If it comes with more content, I'm on it. :) I loved this game! Sure, it had a lot of glitches...but it was very ambitious and an amazing first try at a "blockbuster title". Maybe include a better story and I'm sold on a second game. :)
GOTY Edition? Yeah right,like a broken,unplayable mess of a game would ever win GOTY. *Bethesda puts on a trollface* Yep,it would never happen.
Broken? Absolutely. Unplayable? Millions of people disagree. Best game of the year? Absolutely.
we have very different definitions of "broken" and "unplayable"
You guys do realize that a game can have a GOTY edition if it won Game of the Year from someone, correct? That's kind of the point...
I hear-by christen Amy Game of the Year 2012. Now where is my GOTY edition?
Have you played AMY after the "Title Update".
@Kalowest You think that little title update is enough to warrant it a GOTY award? Nonsense!
I think the point is having one blog or magazine say GotY doesnt make it so, and its a bit conceited of them to think it is. The overwhelming majority agrees its not. If they were honest they would call it the "All the DLC and bug fixes that should have on the disc on release" Edition.
....I thought April Fools was in the beginning of the month
This is game of the year material? Shit that was a piss ass poor year for gaming then. Nevermind it's just that game. Regardless of what you define as game of the year, dead island is not even remotely a contender. Now generic game of the year, sounds much more fitting, nothing in the game that i played was noteworthy. Maybe if your a huge dead rising fan, dead island is a good game, after playing the hell out of fallout's, borderlands and skyrim di was a bland as hell to me. Btw anyone who states di is anything like borderlands, you should be slapped for being stupid.
GOTY what the heck, more like Game to Be Forgotten...
