This wasn't nominated for GOTY by the VGA's...

All those games don't belong. The only ones that do are Dishonored and The Walking Dead.

Borderlands 2 should have been in there.

Journey was great, but it's a small game.

Max Payne 3 was pretty good. I'd nominate that over this.

While I don't agree with their selections either,
Borderlands 2 isn't goty material
It's an improvement on the first but it doesn't bring anything new that we haven't seen before like the first game did.

agreed. AC III is just not good. That is clearly a case of it getting nominated just because it is AC. I liked those games until revelations by the way. I swear I'm not a hater.

I loved Journey, but it's not GOTY material to me. Eh, maybe it is. I dont know. Borderlands is definitely my GOTY.

Not trying to argue but did any games come out this year that really did bring something new to the table? I want to play them. Is Dishonored innovative like that? I gotta play that game.

Assassin's Creed 3 is a maybe, but suffers from a terrible lack of polish. Mass Effect 3 definitely does not belong for the lack of polish and awful, awful plot and ending.

Borderlands 2 should definitely have one of their places, but this year sadly hasn;t been great for games. I'm just glad there's no Halo or Call of Duty there.

I dont understand how journey is on that list. Isnt that game only 5 hours long? If it is i think bl2 should be there instead.

Length doesn't mean a good game. And grinding can get really tedious.

I can understand why BL2 isn't in the GOTY list myself. That said, I enjoyed BL2 for what it was.
Ask me not of the future; ask me instead what fate is written in the deeds of the dead.

May not be on GOTY, but it's under best xbox game. Just gotta go through the categories.

VGA's are a joke award show. Basically the Teen Choice Awards of video games.
