Is BOII being unfairly shafted out of GOTY awards?

Borderlands 2 a lesser game? I can't quite take this seriously. There are plenty of games more deserving than black ops 2 for goty. Even assassins creed 3, with all the glitches, is more deserving albeit barely. I enjoy playing black ops 2, I really do. But I can clearly see this isnt going to be goty.

its not a popularity contest. its an award given to the game that was done best. GOTY = valedictorian. GOTY =/= prom king and queen.


Perfect analogy.

No. Black Ops 2 does absolutely nothing to earn Game of The Year.

That's not to say that it's bad. But it's plain. It's not game of the year contender.

What I find more shocking, and not that I think it deserves to win, but I haven't seen Diablo 3 mentioned once. Not as a Runner Up, not as a contender, not as a "best of the rest," not as anything. Ever.


Diablo 3 is godawful. Editors and gamers hated the direction blizzard took it. Even Diablos creator said the game isnt good, which of course the D3 devs went and blasted him on twitter and fb for the truth.

Torchlight 2 is infinitely better then D3

you got to remember, borderlands 2, has very good dlc compared to most of the cod games, most of the maps coming out suck ass. farcry has a oblivion like storyline, can do anything can goof off, plus a map editor and multiplayer, and halo is just meh.

Halo4s campaign was amazing. Second only to CEs.

The MP is on par with CoDs imo.

All of those games were made with more care than BO2 was.

Halo 4: my favorite of the Halo sequels, they really went all out on the visuals and story and refreshed the MP.

Far Cry 3: A great single player experience. Jungle sandbox, variety of ways to play it...it's a great experience. Dunno about MP, haven't tried it, didn't buy the game for it.

Borderlands 2: The first one was great fun, this one is too. Some changes are bad but others are good. It certainly lasts a while if you do every mission available, and it's addictive trying to level up and find awesome gear. Has lots of genuine comedy.

BO2: The single player was extremely forgettable, focused more on making cool explosions and first-person-cutscenes than on making an interesting story. MP is pretty awful, it's only slightly better than the crapfest that was MW3.

The first three games are all worthy additions to their franchises, BO2 falls far below its predecessor. A game like that shouldn't be GOTY.

I'd be surprised if this game was nominated for GOTY. It's failed in a few fields that are key to making a game great. The multiplayer doesn't work. I mean, flatout, there' s an issue with the spine of the game that every member of the CoD community acknowledges. Does it mean it's not a fun ADD game? no, it can still be fun, but it's not GOTY.

I think I'm going to buy Borderlands 2, but can someone convince me? It looks like Skyrim with guns, and I love me some skyrim. I also love RPG's with customization, so it sounds like the perfect game for me, plus I love the art style but I've never played the first and not sure if there's any replay value.

^^ wow alot of trolls on here tonight. can the mods please do their job


Not even trolling. This series hasn't gotten better in the past 3 years.


^ this...BO, MW3 & BO II are garbage. This does however come down to opinion. I'd much rather play WaW, CoD4, MW2 or BF3 than either of the past 3 CoD games. I wish I would have played WaW , CoD4 or BF3 sooner than I had because I feel they are better games.

I'm sure there are some that feel the clunky gameplay and dated graphics of BOII , cartoon graphics &sounds of BLOPS ,and terrible maps of MW3 (not to mention the spawns..oh the spawns) are what made those games great (how I don't know..but different strokes for different folks) . Personally I prefer MW2, WaW & BF3.

How is it being unfairly shafted? It's not a good game. Every game you listed is better. For once, the COD campaign is better than the multiplayer. It is not worthy of any GOTY award. Everything this game does, another game does better. It's simple.
