how did this happen? Walking dead looks like a giant cut scene. Game Of The Year is suppose to be the game that no one can miss, regardless of genre and personal preference.

seems to me that this game is aimed at fans of the Walking dead series. how is that GOTY material? Just a bunch of emotional dialogue with choice answers sprinkled in, and some hands on quick-time events.

If walking Dead was able to win then AC sure as hell should have.


Ask yourselves this: Would a non-"walking dead" fan, realistically buy the walking dead game?

EDIT: guys, this isn;t a AC3 vs Walking Dead debate. Its a Walking Dead vs ALL THE OTHER GAMES. i only put ac3 in the title so the moderators know that this is kinda AC related

your OVER-exaggerating.

not ALL of Ac3 is a cut scene and to believe and say it is, would be lying.

Walking Dead is for the most part a cut-scene

The story behind Walking Dead is not even that good in my opinion. Stuff like that has been over played and I dont see why it got GOTY. Thats disrespectful to all the other great games that could have taken that title. Not only is Walking Dead a boring premise for a show but even worse as a game. Im not saying that because it got the GOTY and AC didnt because there are other games more worthy of such a title other that Walking Dead I think it was more of a fanboy decision kinda thing rather than based on how good the actual game is

By the way. If you are a Walking Dead fan dont attack me and tell me how great the show/game was/is its my opinion thats all

i guess story is the only thing we take into account when we decide game of the year. Screw gameplay, setting, originality, reception, technology, replayability, graphics, mechanics, impact, significance, and other factors.

AC3 deserved **** all except awards for technical excellence (I mean look at Connor moving around). It was a cluster**** of a design.

Walking Dead was surprisingly good for a tie-in IP and was a fantastic narrative experiences that captivated many. It was innovative in that sense. AC3 is a stale-arse banal game.

I'm glad Walking Dead won.

Hmm... setting was interesting to those that liked it, gameplay was fun for those that liked it, originality? well there aren't any other games like it that's out. The reception was high i think. Technology meh. There multiple different ways to play the game, different endings. so the majority of it is done well. Don't be butt hurt that some other game won GOTY, i didn't play the walking dead but saw my friend play it. It looked interesting, not enough for me to buy it. But still interesting. If AC is GOTY for you then be happy with that

So from your comment you seem to have something against AC3. Yes big issues with the game and blah blah blah but you really think a POS like Walking Dead deserved the GOTY? And Im not saying AC3 did but neither did a limp game like Walking Dead

Meh, game of the year always struck me as a rather meaningless award. Seems to inspire a lot more spite than recognition, especially these days. XD The other awards acknowledge some particular strength within the game, but GOTY really doesn't give a reason, it just says "It's the best!" XD

Point is, nobody seems to agree on what the title is supposed to mean, which suggests that somehow there are people benefitting from all the arguments about it. IGN clearly gets some beneift from inciting riots on their site, but I've never heard what exactly they get from it. Do they get money based on the amount of traffic on their site or something? XD

Where do I start...

1. "Walking Dead looks like a giant cutscene" - Keyword is LOOKS. Go play it instead of prejudging.
2. It is a game no one should miss
3. Isn't AC3 geared towards fans of AC? Saying The Walking Dead game seems to be geared towards fans of the series is just idiotic.
4. "Choices sprinkled in" - At least it had some which affected other in game characters and how they react to you.
5. "Quick Time events" - COUGH AC3's hunting system was full of them and they were also "sprinkled" into cutscenes.

The Walking Dead has a better story too, and it obviously wasn't a game most people missed if it won Game of The Year.

I just think for me the reason why I cant really stand Walking Dead not just the game is because I DONT CARE ABOUT ZOMBIES. That card has been overplayed way way too much I mean we get it already dead people walking is scary and freaky. But really even the story behind Walking Dead was never really anything that got me interested. Its just another run of the mill zombiethon as far as Im concerned. So thats what turned me off on the game was the fact that the TV show is bleak and meaningless and the game is just as much. Just couldnt get into it. But I know there is a lot of fans of both the game and show which is fine Im not saying its an abomination but in my opinion its not something to be held up on a pedestal either.

Walking Dead was a media fav and got a LOT of front page time on a couple of gaming sites..IGN, Kotaku etc. And it wasn't the usual PR page either...they were proper articles indicative of how well the game was received.

Trolling? It'd be stupid to ask you to look up my post history as that wouldn't be fair for you...but I can assure you that I've put in my fair share of constructive posts and page long points which address the cause of "hate".

I've diluted all of it into as a simple summary which perfectly sums up my personal feelings towards AC3 - AC3 sucked.

The fact that many people come here to criticize, is not out of hate. It's just a desire on the part of certain individuals to see certain changes. And I think it's fair for people to come to a forum like this one - precisely where the criticism should be directed - and say whatever they want about the game. There's no reason to get sensitive, or brand others as trolls.

I`m glad AC III never won anything. Gives some thought to the developers. Had they won anything, they would`v boasted about the "Awesome" formula and kept doing much of the same **** we complained about..

AC III is not a perfect game. People do not hate it. They want it improved. That`s why they stay. some are more aggressive than others. We`re fans..

So...Get over it, really..I do not think WD deserved it, but neither did AC III

Yeah, even though AC3 sounds like it's made some advancements, I feel like Ubisoft has been overdoing it, shoving out other games so they can make AC games every single year. -__- And it DOES seem like it's gone to their heads. Personally not a fan of zombies either, but again, it seems unnecessary to support or refute a game for an award that has no real agreed upon criteria in the first place. :D

Haven't played WD, so can't comment on that. But in general it's tough for yearly franchises to win GOTY on most sites. For a game to be GOTY it should feel like it brought something really fresh, which is hard for a yearly franchise to achieve. The only comfort for Ubisoft, Treyarch and EA is that they make truckloads of money :)

Its more about your connection to characters forced upon by zombies. Its not just kill zombies. You develop relationships very well to your character and to Clementine, the child you care for.

Looking forward to playing Walking Dead. I don't normally like zombie-themed things that much, but I heard that they really make you care about certain characters and I've always enjoyed games that pull that off (Ico, Sands of Time, HL2 etc). Sounds like there are a lot of gut-wrenching choices to be made, and it's been a while since I played a good adventure game.

AdrianJacek
12-15-2012, 10:42 AM
While TWD is good I don't think it deserved the GOTY. And it's not about the game itself (okay, it kinda is) but what it represents. It's a dumbed down interactive movie with a good story. Dreamfall has never won a GOTY. In fact it has only got 75 on Metacritic. TWD is the exact same deal. I don't want dumbed-down games to win, I want the actual adventure games to get some recognition.
But I guess that's why people like it so much - gameplay-wise ANYONE can beat and experience it. Heck - remmeber Deus Ex HR? It has more adventure game elelments than TWD and it's not even one for crying out loud!

Listen right off the bat Im not arguing. But Walking Dead should have in no way won. The premise of the show is bleak and out played and its equally bleak and out played as a video game so for it to win something like the GOTY is just a little crazy. And I think that was based more off of the TV show fanboys than anything. And to whoever said AC3 story wasnt up to par with that of Walking Dead is just wrong. I think every forum would be the same 2 different opinions about 2 different games. Bottom line is Walking Dead show and game are just a little too boring for me

Telltale proved with the walking dead that you dont need a massive budget or cutting edge graphics or AAA status to make a good game. Its one of the most memorable videogame experiences ever created, and they raised the bar for storytelling in videogames (not that it was very high to begin with mind you).Thats why.

It was completley unexpected, after the hype around AC3 i thought this would be the one that really elevates the series and nets them some GOTY awards (they deserved some for AC2 and ACB) but no, although there is plenty to like about this ambitious game, they messed up, simple as.

Sorry but there really is no story that I think is good in the Walking Dead. Once again a fanboy that helped propel a POS game to a new level for no reason. Just because there was a TV show about it. I dont know what games you play that dont have a high bar for story telling but then you have a bad choice in the games you pick to play. Once again Walking Dead is a horrible TV show and game. The whole zombie thing is just a dumb actually

Sorry but there really is no story that I think is good in the Walking Dead. Once again a fanboy that helped propel a POS game to a new level for no reason. Just because there was a TV show about it. I dont know what games you play that dont have a high bar for story telling but then you have a bad choice in the games you pick to play. Once again Walking Dead is a horrible TV show and game. The whole zombie thing is just a dumb actually

EDIT- by the way Im not saying AC3 had the story of all stories because it did not Im just saying that to say the bar for story telling in a game was set low already is a pathetic statement to make towards all great games that have deserved such an award unlike Walking Dead


You mean the same thing I have seen you do in posts? Dont be a hypocrite when you people all do the same thing.


Calm Down

I`m not into Zombies either and I thought it was an amazing game, not GOTY caliber for me, but it was definitely worth the buy..

I implore you to look past the Zombie theme. It`s far more complex than just ZOMBIEEZ..trust me

Yes I do think Assassins Creed 3 is a better game but the fanboys made the game as popular as it is

how did this happen? Walking dead looks like a giant cut scene. Game Of The Year is suppose to be the game that no one can miss, regardless of genre and personal preference.

seems to me that this game is aimed at fans of the Walking dead series. how is that GOTY material? Just a bunch of emotional dialogue with choice answers sprinkled in, and some hands on quick-time events.

If walking Dead was able to win then AC sure as hell should have.


Ask yourselves this: Would a non-"walking dead" fan, realistically buy the walking dead game?

EDIT: guys, this isn;t a AC3 vs Walking Dead debate. Its a Walking Dead vs ALL THE OTHER GAMES. i only put ac3 in the title so the moderators know that this is kinda AC related

Actually, yeah, I wasn't a fan of twd before the game, and I'm still not, only a fan to the game. Assassin's Creed lost for 2 reason's. Bugs and a unsatisfying end. They're both great games, and GOTY is only a person, or group of peoples opinion.

I completely agree with all points! TWD the game was amazing, but I hate the show. Assassin's Creed 3 could have won GOTY if it was polished up and if they made the modern day story bits worthwhile. In my opinion, the modern day story was completely neglected and ruined five years of building Desmond's story. I don't think that AC3 should've won GOTY, but I am glad a game as emotional as TWD won.

Nice post! AC3 could have won GOTY if it was way more polished and had a more conistant story (my opinion). But it didn't. The Walking Dead had an amazing story and that is due to it following the comics. If Telltale do a season 2, which they most likely are, I think it will be their own writing team? Not sure, but if they continue to make the games as emotional as the first game then they are going to get great recognition too.

Walking Dead won the award on it's story alone. It's gameplay is sure as hell not GOTY worthy.

The walking dead won because of its characters, mostly bug free game, and the amazing storytelling. Oh yeah, and its actually likeable characters! Really considering selling ac3 and buying that or a real stealth game. (Hitman)

Well mainly because it nailed characters, plot(actually LIKABLE AND GOOD characters). I cannot say AC3 was as good as I expected without being a fanboy. It felt........I cannot describe, unpolished? The core mechanics didn't feel like the core mechanics at all. The tree-running was average. Freerunning in general felt like it had no 'substance' like he was gliding instead of applying effort. Combat was pretty decent, but not challenging enough. Story had odd pacing and I think it was quite inconsistent in places. Naval was hyped but very short. The game lacked assassination targets, the homestead missions were more fleshed out.

I do like the game, but it was FAAARRRRR from GOTY material. Speaking of Far, I think Far Cry 3 could've been GOTY if it had come out a bit earlier.

TL;dr version - Two steps forward, five steps backward.

I've heard great things from a friend of mine about all the Hitman games except for the most recent one which he doesn't have, so no ida about that one. ;)

I`v been following and playing the series, Absolution disappointed me, if you`v never played a Hitman before, then I suggest Absolution Mainly because you do not have the sweet taste of Blood Money in your mouth..

Just my 2 cents

To add to that.....Absolution is more similar to the pre-BM games and does in fact stray from the BM formula due to the level design and mission structure.....it'll be very hard to adjust to Absolution if BM was your favourite.

Contracts is perhaps the only Hitman game which bridges a lot of the gaps between Absolution and C47
