You were right about them being nominated because they were the best games of the year? Mass Effect was amazing (minus the ending) and AC3, while I haven't played it yet, my brother has, and he says it's amazing.

Same reason Last of Us will be nominated, because it will be an amazing game. Ni No Kuni, Epic Mickey, 2D Mario are not Game of the Year caliber. They simply aren't.

Xenoblade, I could see as I've only heard good things about it. The others; no.


You know why you say no? You don't say no, because you've played the games I've mentioned. You say no, because they're not m-rated, from established 5-10 year brands called AAA titles, and they aren't gritty and realistic.

It's the problem with gamers these days. They're too insecure. They can only flock to the safe house, instead of thinking outside of the box.

My 10 year old son beat his first game when he was 9. It was Final Fantasy IV (USA II) on the Super Nintendo. He isn't biased toward graphics, games from established brands, systems, or games that are gritty and rated M. Daddy raised him to be a real gamer. He will grow up to like fun games, not judge them by their looks.


You may have raised your son to be a real gamer, but apparently you weren't raised to be able to read. I said Xenoblade could be a GotY contender and that isn't from an M-rated brand that was established 5- 10 years ago. It isn't a AAA title and it definitely isn't gritty or realistic.

The problem with fanboys is that they're too insecure. If anyone criticizes their console of choice (whether the criticism is correct or not), they vehemently defend the console.

I'm 22 and I beat my first game when I was 4 or 5. I've been replaying Shadowrun on the SNES. And then you tell me to stop judging games by their looks when you're doing the exact same thing with "gritty, modern, realistic" games. You're just full of contradictions, aren't you?

I dont see why they wouldnt show anything. depending on cost, it wouldve been smart to show up and just show something thats in the works.

I dont watch the VGA, and dont really know anybody that does, but im sure thousands maybe millions of people watch it. regardless if they are taken seriously its a big stage to make an announcement.

The gamers they try to get to watch that dribble are the same ones they gear up to buy mountain dew to get some more xp for their COD/HALO game.

Not that they should be neglected, but the polish of Nintendo is ignored by those types and it is easier to get the viral market to buy into or watch their crap.

Maybe if they had marketed to those gamers a bit more, Blops 2 on Wii U wouldn't have sold a paltry 21k.

sorry to say it bub, but you sound like one of the most biased and judgmental of games based on their looks. you seem to not care about gameplay at all, but only care if a game isnt "dark, gritty and has no color"

pretty hypocritical huh?

They sure are, TC.

^That's what you wanted, right? A bunch of mindless drones to agree with whatever crap you post. Hi, I'm Phaseblack and I post the same crap every day cause I have no life. Woo~wee, look at me! Read mah text! Cause no one pays attention to me in the real world. Boo~hoo~hoo....And now you go on the Ignore list. Tired on your mind-numbing posts. They're worse than the tired monotony of day-to-day life. I'd rather work in a coal mine for the next 20 years than have to read another one of your topics. Hopefully one day, you and your kind will stop this nonsense.
