Dem title infractions! Must resist reporting......

Well deserving winners all around.

mikeslemonade2893d ago

Great list.. I agree with many of them

choujij2893d ago

I'm glad some exclusives from both Sony and Nintendo won (I:SS & SSB4).

Destiny also deserved some wins.

Gameplay Innovation
Nemesis System, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Best New IP
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Couldn't agree more!

Sorry for being a debby downer, but the nemesis System is not gameplay, it's a game feature. Mordor's gameplay is a Batman and Ass Greed's mash-up. No innovation there.

Still a good game btw.

Ikki_Phoenix2893d ago

more like orc simulator
its really not a bad game...but awesome ?
no.

antz11042893d ago

No game play innovation? The nemesis system directly affects your play style, tactics, and overall experience. And it's never been done before. I kinda thinks that's the definition of innovation.

As for a mash up good luck finding games today that don't borrow mechanics from others. I'm just glad Mordor takes them and improves on them.

Just to provide our description for the Innovation category:

"Moving a genre forward in either big ways that challenge conventional thinking or through subtle, nuanced techniques to a standard visual/gameplay/storytelling formula is what this selection is all about."

Seems to fit the bill there.

Palitera2893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

How many videos did you watch on your playthrough of SoM?
Did you play a few minutes?

The game borrows mechanics but is much more than a simple mash up. The use of magic alone already adds a completely different necessary layer.

And, to be honest, it is much more creative on its mission design than ANY AC game. (Didnt play Unity)

Excellent game, just finished playing it. 100%

BABY-JEDI2893d ago

I'm still playing it. Just over 60hrs gameplay so far. Can't help collecting stuff LoL, it's killing meeeeeee

WellyUK2893d ago

Personally thought it was nothing special, Just wasn't epic enough and i'm sorry but that ending was absolutely terrible and the game in general was far too easy. Although the Nemesis System is a great addition and deserves the award but the rest of the game was very mediocre to me.

The-Marb2893d ago

A thoroughly excellent title indeed.

The combat may be pure Arkham but the nemesis system is great and its the first time Ive played a game where it really incentivises not dying.

That sounds silly but it reality affects the way you play the game.

The List is great, but wish Alien: Isolation, Wolfenstein: The new Order and Shovel Knight got some recognition as well

daBUSHwhaka2894d ago

Wolfenstein was a superb little gem.Still got Alien Isolation in the wrapper.

Justjoined1232894d ago

You should definitely start unwrapping then, Alien Isolation is superb.

shaw982894d ago

I disagree with GOTY, dlc and multiplayer votes. Mario kart 8 was robbed of best dlc.

Unity won an award, congratulations.

Mankey2894d ago

"Fail of the Year" lol
