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

The walking dead game while yes it is released in 5 parts it is not episodic DLC. From the moment the first episode comes out you can buy all 5 for 20 bucks. I have no problem with it getting GOTY but im still scratching my head trying to figure out how it beat Assassins Creed III. The hype alone should have gotten enough votes for that game. But meh, my goty was not even nominated.

I think the episodes are a terrible, terrible idea. Who the hell wants to wait a month or longer to play the game they already bought? And don't tell me that you can buy the first one to try it out, because that's just a cop-out. I think it's dumb they threw the "Walking Dead" on the game too. It didn't need it, they just did it for money. Also they just jumped on the Zombie bandwagon, which I am so damn tired of.

The loading times are atrocious. Everything between starting the game up, between cutscenes, switching camera views in cutscenes, etc. You can't switch between inverted and non-inverted (huge mistake). The action sequences are terrible (QTEs are so fun! And you know it was meant for extreme first time game players because you can be incredibly far off on your reticle and you'll still hit the zombies or select a pan to look at). And the story is pretty predictable for the most part. I truly believe this should not have been GoTY, but it was because of the zombie craze and the walking dead logo. My Dad, who doesn't play very many video games called me up on the phone to teach him how to download this because he likes the show. I just don't think the game was very good ....at all.

Load times? Oh thats right, you're not using an SSD like the rest of the cool kids in the year of our lord 2012 :PCelitists:. I remember load times. How quaint those were.

This means that more zombie game next year


Sweet. Maybe someone will finally make the open world survival zombie game fans have always wanted and actually do it right. Then I can stop buying zombie games, because that game will never leave my console again. Ever.


It's coming. State of Decay.

The problem is that there should be two separate categories of awards for full retail and Arcade .
Oh well just another reason for people not to take these awful gaming award shows seriously.

And as for the DLC? well the industry is ****** no matter what , the industry does not care about the few gamers who care all they care about is milking the luxury box gamers for every dime possible.
The gamers who are annoyed by DLC milkage just ignore DLC and move on to the next toss away flavor of the week game in this over saturated market.
