The award season is just about wrapping up, but one of the last few major events was hosted tonight. Winners for the 2018 Game Developers Choice Awards were revealed during a ceremony at the San Francisco Moscone Center.
Not surprise, but impressive work, Nintendo.
Not surprised either but I do not feel this game deserves to be worshipped this much. It is good but not great. I want to know what makes this game better than anything else last year. I think Nostalgia is the only reason it won. If it was Nani Zelda game, they would have never mean traction.
agreed. Some of the same things people bash Ubisoft for was praised in this game
Ubisoft? What.. downgrades? Lies? missing content? Pretty sure Zelda had none of that stuff..
Fully agreed. Some people tend to completely ignore its many flaws. Remember people, constructive criticism is necessary for growth!
It was a great game so much fun messing around in that universe, if you went into the game looking for faults you will find some, every game have faults but they choose Zelda because it had less faults
It won, and it deserved it. And yeah it does deserve the awards. Wanna debate? Because Sony fans who have no bias (yeah right) want to debate experts who make games for a living. Be my guest.
"Nostalgia" is just an excuse when people can't think of anything else. Maybe nothing else was that great either or had less impactful flaws than BOTW. If people aren't open minded and realistic about their expectations, and enjoy what the game provides(not what it doesn't), they may(or may not) find a great game. The prevailing positive opinion of "experts" shows much less bias than any limited view of the world we get from comment sections and message boards.
Of course... 🙄
Dude, come on.
Dude don’t...I don’t bring your comments down or make my mouth go when you say certain stuff on some articles. It’s hypocritical...it’s a comment site, deal with opinions. God imagine if I said more above when you can’t even handle two words
Go on Dr. Phil already if it's still affecting you after a full year lol
yeah we get it.. poor (insert your favorite PS4 game here) because it didn't win. You don't agree with the choice, but you weren't the one voting.
Not sure why you have to bring Sony into this. Everyone is excited that Zelda won Game of the Year at GDC. This is the first time in 15 years that a GDC GOTY winner has been playable on a Nintendo console and I think everyone, including Sony fans, are excited that Nintendo is finally making good games again.
@Gameseeker If only things were that simple round here...
LOL cause it's all PS vs Nintendo right? Just pathetic, there is more than enough to critique about this incredibly flawed game. It's a hollow game in every sense of the word. Mario odyssey is lightyears ahead of this game in terms of level design and overall pacing of the game. Mario Odyssey is a game that consistantly kept getting better as you kept playing, where as BotW you start out interested then reach huge boring spurts with nothing interesting with a few points of interest spread out here and there, only to find out those just lead you to more boring easy to beat shrines. Anyone that argues BotW is fundamentally a better game than Odyssey knows nothing about game design. Odyssey is easily one of the best in the Mario series and BotW is one of the worst in the Zelda series.
@Sono421 - are you kidding me.. people weren't griping because Mario Odyssey didn't win. It was because Horizon didn't.. you think people are actually Pro-Nintendo around here? Odyssey could have just as easily won..
It won. Deal with it.
Congrats to Zelda!!! Swept every major award show clean.
I'm very proud of nintendo. BOTW was indeed an amazing game.
I think a few years from now it will go down as one of the most over rated games out there. It doesn't really do anything new and went back a few steps in some aspects in zelda games. The story was almost non-existent. It ended up being a very polished game with an attention to detail and that's about it
To me that would be The Witcher 3. Most over rated title I mean.
Did they seriously award Best Audio to Zelda? Over Hellblade? LOL. And Nier is just an honorable mention for narrative alongside BotW. Jesus... The Audience Award went to Nier: Automata. I agree with the audience.
Another game of the year for Zelda, another comment section filled with fans saying Zelda isn't great. Go tell it to the experts and journalist who obviously disagree.
Yes. It is their view. If you don't like it. Tough. If Horizon had won. You would be praising them.
That's right - suck it Mario! Zelda FTW!
Experts? Like that clown who couldn't get through the Cuphead tutorial? I've been gaming longer than a lot of these goofball game journalists have been alive, and I see very little expertise demonstrated by them. Many of them are hacks more interested in social justice activism than gaming, and some of their gameplay footage looks like someone put a controller in a dog's mouth to chew on.
Pretend a Sony game won. Then you would sing a different tune.
95% of my gaming in the past few months has been on my rebuilt PC. I don't see a "Sony game" winning changing much for me. Nier: Automata and Hellblade are not "Sony games," either. They were not made or produced by Sony and are available on PC. I also have Breath of the Wild on WiiU.
Please ignore this individual ,they literally believe that anything you say against this game is because you like Sony, all you have to do is look at their common history....
Playing this game and exploring can be relaxing.
Until you meet a guardian and a lynel.
