Great list, even if AC3 doesn't win GOTY, I hope it wins at least something!
As for character of the year, I believe Raul from COD will win because of the huge COD fanbase. :/

12-07-2012, 10:14 PM
That's a good list, but i would change best xbox 360 game- halo 4 and leave best ps3 game AC 3. These are just predictions though, i don't care for how it turns out, i only watch for the premieres :o

Original score may go to Journey. It has a grammy nomination for its soundtrack. For a game soundtrack to be up with John Williams, Hans Zimmer and Howard Shore is amazing

I really hope The Walking Dead gets goty. That game was so awesome.. It had an excellent story, gameplay was fun, and the ending was very good, a sad ending, but good.
The graphics were a bit off, but I didn't really pay much attention to the graphics.

I could not care less about the graphic in that game. It's just something you don't pay attention to in a game that good.

12-08-2012, 05:51 AM
I'm actually glad that The Walking Dead won game of the year because it is a great game. One of my favorite story lines. Walking Dead had my vote but AC3 was my second choice.

n97e
12-08-2012, 05:54 AM
I've yet to play any of the others nominated for GOTY, but all of them were games I wanted to play. Would still of like AC3 to of won best graphics or action/adventure. Not to upset about the GOTY outcome though, all the nominees looked like great games.

AdrianJacek
12-08-2012, 06:31 AM
titYeah... the choice is kinda suprising. Cause I never saw games like Dreamfall or Heavy Rain become A GOTY. Design wise it's pretty much a copy of Dreamfall - a good story mixed with lackluster gameplay. I personally think Yelltale's previous titles had better adventure-like gameplay. Nut I guess this way more people will actually finish the game. Kinda sad.
On one had it's nice an adventure game won GOTY.. on the other it's way to simplified. And on the thrid hand AC3 came out this year, come on! :P

AC3 was nominated? Really?

They expect people to buy dlc before they fix things like, twin holsters, quivers, and the other sh*t-ton of glitches? Really?

I wonder if you can actually assassinate Washington here, and not just a lame-*** fight and then "press square" on a cutscene...

I'm actually a huge fan of the Walking Dead comic and the show (to a lesser degree). I didn't really have any interest in this game, but I guess I'll have to check it out...

Kinda bummed that AC3 didn't win anything, though. Still, it was nice to see Balfe up there conducting, and the Connor bit was neat.

I like series because of the characters...without them, it'd just seem like another zombie-survival game cashing in on a brand name. Apparently, this is not the case. xD
