I think people are misunderstanding why many are upset about Walking Dead GOTY

So it's okay if the golden child Valve does it but not someone else?

You're completely forgetting the part where Half-Life was pretty much sunk by the release format.

This. Also the TC is very correct.

So without playing the game you start complaining about something you have no idea what you're talking about....

Smooth.

Play the games and you'll understand. In the mean time stop wasting your breath without educating yourself on the topic.


This was a perfect answer to this topic and should have ended the whole conversation.

No, we who are upset about the win have not played Walking Dead, and most of us probably don't watch the show. However, without playing it, we know already it is an ARCADE game, that has EPISODIC DLC, a big no-no for many of us. Not only are we against an arcade game winning GOTY over full $60 retail games, we are also against EPISODIC DLC. We are afraid if award shows start praising games that implement EPISODIC DLC, it could be detrimental to video gaming in the long term as more and more publishers jump on the bandwagon. This has nothing to do with our tastes or our intelligence being "inferior" to yours it is simply a belief that arcade games, especially those with episodic DLC should not be given GOTY awards as we fear this could set a very bad precedent for the future of gaming. Hope you understand the complaints better now and can stop insulting our perceived "inferior" brains. Thank you and good day.



They had to do it that way because they finance the game with the money they earn from the first episode. It was a brilliant plan because they have been able to revive a genre.

Now that they have won goty, maybe they will have enough investors to release a full title.

Do you not fear that in the future publishers could start exploiting this model to further milk money out of gamers?


It is already going in this direction because of "development cost"
from raising Xbox Live Arcade game prices to raising PC game costs from 50 to 60 dollars for more games. To the things they at least do not force on you but try to get you to buy like Disc Locked Content or getting you to get a season pass before the content is even finished.

I am waiting for a Disc release, but the game looks good to me, and the only thing all these GOTY awards mean for me is that hopefully i can hold off and get the game next year with all the content on disc at a cheaper price. (Read Dead Redemption, Batman, Borderlands I hopefully II)

Symby? What the hell? Have you even played the game? And don't give me the, "Well, I've seen others play it, and I was not very interested. Plus, I am not very interested in the show."

I enjoyed the crap out of The Walking Dead game and I have not even watched the show since "Finding Sophia", excuse me, "Walking Dead Season 2" ended.

I can't play XBLA games. When it does come out on discs, I will try it and tell you about it but I highly, highly doubt it deserves any GOTY award.

Comes out retail on Tuesday ^^
I think you'll like it, Dark. Before I played it, I saw my brother playing it, and I was just "Meh" as I had already played telltale's Jurassic Park and thought it was mediocre, but TWD is a beautifully made game.

You shouldn't be judging a game you have not played. And it comes out in a disc form in a couple of weeks I've heard. Play it, and then get back to me.
