Is that list a joke? How can games like Zelda and Skyrim be on the list when no one's played it yet?


Because the people actually voting for the GOTY have played them...

I still think that is ass backwards logic.

GOTY...it's not out yet but it's still GOTY, because we said so!

And then what if the game comes out and sucks and gamers don't like it? What if the game doesn't sell or there is something else that catches everyone's attention while the supposed GOTY sits on shelves not selling? What if the game has solid gameplay but is too short so it's just a rental? That is the problem I have with things like that. Awards should not be given out until said title is on the market, people have played it and either love it/ hate it, but at least have developed a sense of whether or not the game is any deserving of such a title, as opposed to just taking some guys word for it. And then what about avoiding obvious REAL GOTY contenders that everyone is/has playing/played: Gears 3, Forza 4, etc.

To quote the UFC: never leave it in the hands of the judges. Cause then you'll be seeing things like this happen:

Judge:

" Dance Central 2, GOTY because I had sooo much fun with it.."

everyone else:

"WTF????"
