The VGX 2013 has come and gone, and the dust has settled, leaving all the winners celebrating. If you missed the show, here’s a list of all the winners announced so far.
Glad Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch won best RPG
Good for forza 5 I'm drunk posting!!
lol what? that wasn't even nearly related to his comment.
Lalanana your drunk posting go home.
All that matters is GOTY. And GOTY goes to GTA5. Can careless about "best whatever".
Im drunk too this is awesome
GTA V deserved the win. It's a shame they didn't do it on the VGA stage with actual fans to cheer them on as Rockstar deserved. Side note. Love Turn 10 got accolades for the best next gen launch game thus far. Evil
I'm sorry, The Last of Us deserved GOTY award. GTA V was great, visually stunning and I'm still playing it now. However TLoU has been the best game I've played in a while. Quite disappointed as others on here that it didn't win anything.
Being drunk is always relevant!
@Mr Lahey You would know because you are The Liquor.
All of them deserved to win. There really wasnt a bad game on that list.
I don't think tomb raider deserved to be on that list... I enjoyed it... but seriously seriously, not GOTY. the rest were all contenders yes, but I still think GOTY went to an undeserving winner this year.
@xJumpManX that's because Tomb Raider was action and mystery while The Last of Us was gloom and doom. The Last of Us is supposed to be uncomfortable(grim outlook for everyone) while Tomb Raider is supposed to be inspirational(Lara and the survivors overcoming what seems like insurmountable odds). You're supposed to happy when The Last of Us is done because the uncomfortableness is gone. The Last of Us is like Game of Thrones. When you're reading/watching the events play out the first time you don't know who is off limits as far as being killed. SPOILERS Ned Stark and the Joel fake out END OF SPOILERS Tomb Raider is more like... I don't know ... The Hunger Games perhaps. You don't expect Lara to die ever and you know Katniss is off limits. It's unlikely tale of survival against the odds but its expected and predictable to an extent. You expect the main character to have near death experiences but to bounce back and kick ass. Hunger Games has a lot more "characters" die so it's more tragic but you get the point.
@Wolokowoh - I enjoyed your post but found the idea of comparing prose from talented authors like; George R.R. Martin J R.R Tolkein To the excrement prose produced by the game industry wrong. The story for the last of us was OK, that all, not great or even brilliant. It was just OK. However because it was aimed at gamers, it was made to become something it wasn't. Kind of like a golden turd, you know pretty but dull. Now the game was very good, as a game but the story was just DULL, just quite average... Yes it was the game equivalent of the Twiglet books, dumb, sh!te and very dull. Maybe they could turn TLOU into a film and get that crap actress to star in it. You know the one, she's the one with the emotional range of a cat turd. OK rant over. As for the rest I'm rather happy with the results of the awards
i also voted it ,and i also voted gta 5 for brst game and ac black flag for best action adventure and best shooter for bioshock infinite and best racing for forza ,i'am glad that i maked all right choises.
That was the best surprise of the show for me. I hoped for Final Fantasy XIV, because honestly Yoshida's team deserves all the credit of the world for turning that game around, but Ni No Kuni was awesome as well.
I agree but In spirit FFXIV also won in my opinion. They both are excellent games. I seriously am incredibly proud of Yoshida for what him and his team accomplished to turn that game around. I am very much looking forward to see what other games he directs in the future because have absolute faith in his abilities.
Awesome point you made there. I was hoping the same for FFXIV and echo your thoughts on Yoshida.
Hard to argue with any of the winners!
Congrats on SoTY ND! It's a tough battle for GoTY when you're an exclusive. Especially going up against GTAV, well fought.
Ni NU Kuni deserves that honor so much, rightfully won and well deserved here is hoping for more RPG's like that
How does GTA V win GOTY when Naughty Dog won studio of the year. If you win studio of the year it only makes sense that you also win GOTY. This is just more evidence that the VGX trying to be fair rather than do what's right. No wonder so many developers were tweeting out their disappointment with the show.
Gta5 was technically great and a ton of fun but the TLOU was soo good and had a great story compared to the sillyness of gta I would say most fun GTA5 and best story TLOU. If I could only have experienced one I'm not sure though. What would u guys pick if u could only play one? Gta does have a lot of replay value
Glad to see Ni no Kuni won best RPG. I really enjoyed playing that game. I really hope a spiritual successor is made for the PS4.
http://n4g.com/news/1400449... I hope its true, but a Ni no Kuni 2 is rumored for PS4
I would be so damn hype if there ni no kuni 2, I'm freaking bored with all these fps games
And we won't see it for 10 years, the first game took them 5 years to develop, then 3 years to localize in america. Personally I didn't think it was that good to wait that long for a sequel.
Give me Dark Cloud 3. Ni No Kuni's good, but dark cloud had better gameplay and catered to a more mature audience. I would be happy with either game though honestly...
That would be tops bloobi man.
Hard to choose between Ni no Kuni, Fire Emblem and Pokemon. I put so many hours into all of them. Props to Ni no Kuni though.
Where's the last of us?
I agree it's bullshit that the last of us didint get shit screw you vgx you all suck
Yeah I feel your pain. At least naughty dog got studio of the year and that says a lot about a studio, because it shows that it's one of the best around, it even beat out rockstar in this category. And actor troy baker as joel and actress ashley Johnson as Ellie both won too.
Honestly i dont think tlou is that good of a game, thats my opinion. I ayed and the story was meh, i did not even finish it. I got the game two months after release and i couldnt keep my mind on the story. Joels partner tough guy lady friend hate her. Graphics are good, and i know millions love tlou, i think its alright. But thats my op. uncharted is my fave series.
I agree. I would have picked last of us over bio shock infinity Having beat both games several times I enjoyed last of us a lot more
How did you force your way through Infinite multiple times? I had to push my way through it just the first time around...that is if it didn't put me to sleep first!
@ android Infinity wasn't a bad game. It was pretty decent But last of us beat it hands down in my opinion
GTAV was always going to win. Even if it was the crappest game around.
looking out for clickers!
Injustice beating KI.. Just wow..
Serious comment? Injustice was great.
KI was good, Injustice was better. Story-wise, Presentation, gameplay is debatable.
Totally agree. killer instinct is good and all and I enjoy it, but beyond the point of the game which is fighting, there is absolutely nothing there. It is not a whole package game at all. Injustice clearly is.
ki is crap face it already its not the good old hardcore fighting it was on nintendo
So you saying you have not played it? Noted.
KI is meh
Interesting list for vgx. Little disappointed in the world premier segment, but I think I understand why certain games wouldn't premier at it....cough cough Bethesda.
#fact injustice for ps4 it's definitive and that version is exclusive.
It's still better on PC.
Dat control scheme.
Which one? There's a large number of control schemes available for the PC :)
Hes referring to the "Fail troll control scheme"
Actually you can get it on the Vita and PC..... nice try though.
Pikmin 3 should have won the best Nintendo game award :/
He was the viewer, shitting on an already huge shit, just adding to the shit, by making a social commentary about the shit. it was shit. Geoff was about to cry at one point I swear. Joel knew it was a trainwreck and just stopped reading the teleprompter to interrupt people with insults. He certainly did not make it a better show, but nothing could save this.
LOL Forza 5 had no competition. GT6 didn't come out until yesterday so it wasn't even nominated. Xbone fans are really clingy and desperate.
You are an ignorant fanboy...
Says the guy who loves Xbox and only Xbox.
Lol..is that a fact or what you feel? My ps1, ps2 and ps3 beg to differ...lmao.
I like how when someone is being called out as a XBox fanboy and then he countered that argument by saying he own PS1, PS2, PS3 etc, as if this single statement would somehow automatically made his comments accurate. You are what you posted, period. People can see based on your post history which is nothing but singing praises for MS. A so-called "owner" of PS consoles that keeps rooting for MS? Yeah sure, cows can fly too!
@toybox "Xbone fans are really clingy and desperate" so says a sony fanboy and you rush in here to defend that? Lmao...If you went snooping through my comments, you should have tried to spend more time digging through.i respect gamers but i dont go out of my way constituting a nuisance across ps articles and bashing ps fans for no reason so if shutting biased and ignorant gamers like yourself and fantasma up makes me a fanboy then im glad im one .sorry if im not like the rest of your type...dont hate for no reason or just spill out crap cos of bias...i stick more to xbx articles cos its obvious you find more reasonable, less biased and more level headed gamers there esp here on n4g.i love reading comments from reasonable gamers(sony, nintendo and xbx fans alike)...but guys like you cant help yourselves you just keep spilling your bias across xbx articles and supporting trolls..this article gave the xbx one props and what happened? Fanboys attacked as usual..sorry bro..i dont do that crap and i will never.snoop through my comment history again if you wish.i praise sony where it is due, hell i love nd games , looking forward to infamoue and ive stated it on a number of ocassions,bottom line i give props where it is due but i always try to avoid articles which are strictly playstation related cos most fanboys there are childish, unreasonable and insultive ..but i guess you are just like fantasma.so what do you care?
What about Need For Speed Rivals? And how are Xbox One fans being clingy? Are they the ones who made it racing game f the year? Also, GT6 is gonna bottom out at sub 80 scores, hardly game of the year material.
200 cars, 14 tracks, no day/night cycle, and no dynamic weather(I wont even get into the down graded visuals over the E3 presentation) isn't racing game of the year material.. GT6 got snubbed because of its release date nothing more. I know Forza fans love to throw that "Highest rated" label around alot but honestly GT is rated lower because its a game made for enthusiasts and only enthusiasts.. Polyphony doesn't make this game so a non racing fan(looks at IGN) reviews this game high. PD makes GT because they love cars and the fans of the series are perfectly content with the game and whatever Kazunori decided to do with the series. There's a reason GT sales blow Forza sales out of the water..
The "score and rating" strategy is just desperate.
Kinda like your "Dat control scheme" comment further up....
CoD sales blow Killzone sales out of the water, I suppose that means it is the definitive shooter then? "200 cars, 14 tracks, no day/night cycle, and no dynamic weather(I wont even get into the down graded visuals over the E3 presentation) isn't racing game of the year material.." Actually everything Forza Motorsport 5 does from now on IS racing goty material, since it won racing goty and GT6 didn't.
@Evil_Abed Why did you even bring COD into this? COD sells so well because its accessible. Its easy for beginners or casuals to pick up a controller get some kills and have fun with it. Forza is the more accessible game in this scenario, has features like the rewind button and auto braking for people that don't know anything about racing lines, apexing, corner braking etc. Yet Gran Turismo is more beloved and outsells Forza in spades.. Wonder why that is? Because for racing enthusiasts that want a true to life racing experience GT is the gold standard.. Like I stated before GT gets reviewed lower because sites like IGN let someone who knows nor cares anything about racing review the game. Just like Polygon allowed someone who knowingly despises the Killzone franchise review Shadow Fall and gave it a terrible score. Kazunori Yamauchi couldn't care less about the mainstream's desire to add body kits to their cars and plaster it with Tenzo R, Billstein, or any custom graphics.. He makes GT for purists and it is often reviewed or looked at from the perspective of casuals.. But I will adamantly stand by my statement that from a techincal standpoint GT is superior. Physics, handling, car behavior under braking or on the throttle etc is a step above in GT games and always has been.. You can keep your "Racing Game of the Year" award because I am playing and loving GT6 on my PS3 and when GT7 releases next year on the PS4 I and millions of others will gladly give Sony our $60. Just to give perspective I'm not just a pure Sony fanboy that automatically writes off anything Xbox.. In fact I Bought a 360 just to try Forza 4 and I wont lie I had fun with it but the game never came close to scratching that itch that only Gran Turismo has been able to over the years.
The only thing i disagree is Gone Home & GTA V. Should had swap to The Last Of Us and The Stanley Parable or Paper Please
I honestly think Gone Home is like an inside joke from the developers or something. $20 for a 2 hour game about some runaway lesbian = best indie game of the year? Especially over the great games you listed...it's gotta be a joke!
I still don't see what's so special about GTA V... Played it, beated it, 100% it for the sake of being a completionist... But it's not like I still remembered much from it a week after playing... Seriously, this is more forgetable than summer romantical commedy flicks (specially Franklin stuff). Also there's only so many types of missions that you keep repeating agaisnt a new meningless character over a plot you'll forget before completing the mission itself. Unique missions are good but few (specially Heists, should had been way more). It's still a fun game for the single player, but it fails at being remarkable (or at least in being remarkable by itself, it just goes with the GTA tide), hence missing out on what, for me, it the very thing that makes a game of the year in the first place. And multiplayer... Wow, R* should be thanking EA to push DICE around, because BF4 multiplayer just saved GTA Online from being the worst multiplayer experience this year. Seriously, the thing I remember the most about GTA Online is not being able to play it or getting random disconnected or whatever, just to be kicked back into single player and the car radio was giving this ad on cloud computing being the future. Yeah right. And that's not even really fixed, people still get randomly disconnected all the time. And beyond the technical problems, what about content? Missions (of all kinds) are so uninspiring that there's basically no incentive to play beyond being a jackass on free roam (even more so because they can't fix the damn glitches and exploits, so everyone simply go take a tank into their garage and go nuts). And the worst part is that I'm pretty sure almost everyone would trade all the free roam crap for some heists (which were heavily talked about since announcement, yet they had not released). I wouldn't give this game a GOTY award even if it was the only game out there... I would never reward an unremarkable half broken game.
