UC3 definetly get best graphics because VGA's are retarded and didnt nominate Crysis 2 or Battlefield 3 which are the best looking games in existance...

Original score, don't even know why Portal 2 was nominated, definetly doesnt deserve it.

DA_SHREDDER2974d ago

battlefield on pc maybe, but on consoles, i think Killzone 3, Dead Space 2, Rage, and Uncharted 3 should have been nominees for graphics. GOTY, I've played everything besides Batman, and from that its about a Tie between, Skyrim, Dead Space 2, and Killzone 3.

in my opinion Crysis 2 wasn't so pretty and BF3 has sooooo many bugs and glitches only fanboys would nominated it

Derekvinyard132974d ago

"How the heck is Dark Souls not nominated for game of the year or best ps3 game...??? I get it not making game of the year because they can only have so many games nominated and there are some great games but how can anyone argue Killzone 3 as a better game than Dark Souls....ugh"

That is the rage of a fan boy.

Whats that!? We couldn't hear you over the sound of SKYRIM.

Personally I think the VGA's are always going to be a joke, the best way to sum up the game are; "these are the game we have played" which should not be the mentality of the people who pick the nominees, they are meant to choose titles which are meant to be chosen.

Where is Ace Combat: Assasult Horizon in the soundtrack/music section?
Where is Dark Souls?
Why do games that were not even released get nominated?

VGA's are sill young but no one is going to take them seriously if they keep making some stupid mistakes.

People don't seem to understand that VGA voters are people in the industry who play advance builds of the games that are not yet released. If this award show wants your game nominated, you bet your ass the publishers are going to co-operate to make the public more aware of their product. Sure it's possible that the builds given to the judges could reflect more positively or negatively than the final copy, but for the purpose of nomination, I think it is a fair enough representation.
