Kotaku's Game of the Year Nominations

Brian Crecente writes - "There are two ways to approach Game of the Year awards.

Either you create awards meant to be used as a sort of buying guide, a consumer-centric list that tells people who own a certain console which games they absolutely must buy for that year. That's what we did last year with our Goaties.

This year we're trying the other approach: Creating a set of awards that reward the artistry of creation. You won't go wrong if you run out to buy these games. But this year's Goaties are meant to serve as a sort of carrot, albeit an incredibly tiny one, that reward what we think is important in game development."

"Creating a set of awards that reward the artistry of creation."

First of all his writing skills are sorely lacking. Someone get that person a thesaurus.

But no MGS4 and they are rewarding artistry? L4D is artistry over MGS4? Right.

I wish no one here would post their stuff anymore. Its garbo. Same with Yahoo news. Just wishful thinking I guess.

There is a reason I don't go to Kotaku anymore.

GTAIV was barely on any of the sub categories, but still manages to get almost all the vote for GOTY?

It appears that I have forgotten to add the Wii as a tag. My bad.
