Vote for him on December 7! <3 :D

Also, AC3 nominated for Game of the Year, Best 360 Game, Best PS3 Game, Best Action Adventure Game and Best Graphics (but these categories are not voted by players, you can only vote for your pick but the VGA panel will decide the winners themselves anyway)

Jesus. Just.... wow. I can't even begin to describe how bloody awful that running is. Master Chief? Really? and Commander Shepard, the guy/gal who changes depending on what the PLAYER chooses? That isn't a character. Clap Trap? I just.... I don't even..... Nope, words cant express it. Anything Call of Duty in the *character* category? I'm not even gonna dignify that with an answer.

Whoever chose this "list" is a moron and awt to be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. And maybe taken out and whipped in the streets.

I'm gonna make my whole class, cousins vote for Connor and everything AC3 related! Or they'll burn in hell! Lol.
Ezio was nominated in 2010, he didn't win, hope Connor does. I mean, even though he's the newest character in the gaming world, he's very popular, it took Ezio two years to get nominated, while for Connor it was only a few months. I hope he wins, all the other characters shouldn't even be on the list.
P.S. Mods stick this thread! :D

they add up; and in time he'll have won a few more 'petty' arguments (paraphrased) and thus become well known and prove his awesomeness (Own words)

Well each of that crazy robot's dialogs are gold. Whoever wrote his lines, kudos to him. I was laughing so much while Claptrap was messing with that guy in Sanctuary, during his birthday party where he invited everyone but no one came, during that quest where he asks you to do impossible tasks to access his hidden stash.. his dialogs towards the end of the game where he "persuades" the female robot to cooperate, how he tries to "integrate" with a circuit. So yeah. I really like him, and not just because I'm a Borderlands fanboy. No other videogame character made me laugh so much. If it allowed me two votes I'd have voted for Connor for sure xD Frankly I'm a little disappointed Borderlands 2 isn't nominated for GOTY.. Its a pretty underrated game.

And LOL@Shepard. Probably EApower at play here.

47 doesn't deserve a place on that list. Absolution should be buried, never to be remembered.

Don't get me wrong, Bateson has always done a fantastic job, but the writing in Hitman Absolution is atrocious (which wouldn't matter, since Hitman's story has ALWAYS taken a back seat, and gameplay has always been prioritised, but for some reason they felt compelled to change that) I feel bad for him, and for fans of the series.

I think Connor`s Character is Genius. He was never Perfect. His Child-like view on life was so moving...He`s so Pure and tries to see the best in People. He`s so full of flaws that the whole time playing I was asking my self questions.

THAT is good Writing... Not some Viciously Cliched Character with a Cliched Story.. ( I Still liked Ezio, but compared to Connor, Ezio just fails) When People call Connor 1D, I`d think how fitting that`d be with Ezio... Because he is so 1D

I am loving the Ezio vs Connor back channel talks.....

One side thinks Ezio is a skirt chasing cliched rogue and hence overrated while the other thinks that Connor is a one note naive mowgli

Both sides fail to comprehend the character arc that the two went through and the subtleties which define the two assassins.

That said Ezio, thanks to a much more fleshed out story and a larger narrative arc is naturally more developed and multifaceted. It's unfair to compare Connor to Ezio right now. I do believe hat Connor lacks the charm and the street smarts that made Ezio so likeable but he makes up for it in terms of a different, fresher worldview and also the fact that Connor as a character has a lot of opportunities to grow...we haven't seen it yet.

I fault the games narrative structure and poor mission design for making Connor a duller character than he is and failing to infuse more life into him. They ****ed up hugely with Connor first time out but did establish am interesting protagonist whom I'd like to follow in the next game

And naive, innocent, idealistic youth disillusioned while fighting for a noble cause isn't?

every thing is cliched....it's how you define and flesh those cliches with personality quirks and choices that make a character great

Ezio was angry, vengeful, wise, sarcastic, witty, sad, introspective, regretful, passionate, compassionate, empathetic, ruthless, cruel, manipulative, lewd.....all of these flavours we have seen in several moments through out the Ezio trilogy which give meat and personality to the character over a course of several years....and we saw a natural progression of Ezio from youth to a wise and pragmatic Assassin legend.

Touche!

But would you not agree? Ezio has a huge display of emotions and reactions which naturally make him a more relatable character as it lends humanity...he ****s up, gets pissed off, admires women, gets a little cruel sometimes....these are indicative of a deep personality and not a cliche which is basically ONE character type with no variation...

Connor hasn't gone through this yet...so we haven't seen the other side..hence why a lot of the people think him in one note and why I also blamed the narrative. But you and I can both agree that Connor is definitely interesting and should have his own trilogy

Connor hasn't gone through this yet...so we haven't seen the other side..hence why a lot of the people think him in one note and why I also blamed the narrative. But you and I can both agree that Connor is definitely interesting and should have his own trilogy
Agreed Entirely with everything:D

Even if Connor doesn't win, I wouldn't be surprised. AC3 is his first game while all the other characters on the list have had at least 2-3 games with them. But he does have great potential and he deserves to win.
Also, when is Gamespot's Best of 2012 supposed to be?

I don't know if you guys realize this, but I would think that it would be harder to write a character that people don't like than one that people like. It would of been so easy to just take Ezio's character and tweak it a bit.

The devs actually said that it was easier to write Haytham's character than Connors in a response to a question about why Haytham was more likable than Connor.

Ha, claptrap is awesome (really all the Borderland 2 characters are great) but I'll go for Connor. He was a bad a** and had a lot of depth to his character. We got to see the many shades of him over the course of the story. People should remember that he is still young thrown into a world of death and deceit. I would like to see all of you handle some of the things he went through when you're in your twenties. We'll see him mature and grow in the next game.

As for the most anticipated game.....that choice is crazy hard. The last of Us would prob be my first choice though with GTA V at second and Bioshock third.

You`ll want to play it at least 2 more times when You initially finish it..

The amount of freedom given is just astonishing. You can literally go through the Quests using a dozen ways...

The Story is Great too

11-17-2012, 10:27 AM
Dishonored seems cool, but I am very weary of getting it because I heard there is only 2 ways for non-lethal take-downs. Granted there is a bunch of ways to do lethal take-downs, but I like to play games in a style similar to Splinter-Cell and Hitman.

Is really limited ways for non-lethal take-downs, or is it an over-exaggeration? That is the only thing keeping me from buying it.

pirate1802
11-17-2012, 10:37 AM
Hmm.. I mostly do nonlethal takedowns. Either sleepdart them from a distance or muffle them from behind xD

And the game is not short. Its only short if you gun down everyone in sight and don't do any sidequests. The amount of freedom, as M said, is astonishing. You can even spare your assassination targets, if you wish so (though I didn't) and the way you approach the missions are limitless. I really wish AC learns something off them.

The story was good, but not great. It is your generic revenge n revolt story, not saying its not good, and maybe it's just me, but I saw that twist coming miles away, always happens in such tales of rebellion. There was a lack of memorable characters. Only Edward and Emily clicked for me. Overall imma give this game a 9/10. A strong GOTY contender.

I think Ezio was not a Good Character, Really..

I think Connor was written so much better..So I think He deserves a place on that list.. (Good Characters do not have to be Flashy, Humorous, Womanizing Playboys)
That's a very good point, and I agree, The flashy, humorous womanizing playboy archetype has been way overdone. I was very fond of Altair as well, he was very direct in his demeanor, his no nonsense approach reminded me of a soldier. Connor IMHO was an interesting character as well... I appreciate the fact that his viewpoint was native American, they did not bend his demeanor to satisfy what many people wanted him to be> Ezio. He was simply Connor. And his perspective was that of a Native American. which is a very unique perspective. JMO for whatever it is worth. Should he have won Character of the year? I think he was as interesting as any of the others in the games that I have played. just maybe not as flamboyant and cliched.

Probably one of the best speeches at the VGA's so far, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. His video got the most likes and views and was featured on the VGA's front page.
In my opinion, Clap Trap shouldn't have won, I don't know who truly deserved it but it definetly shouldn't have been Clap Trap.
