thoughts on the VGAs

going to discuss the ones i disagree with

GOTY - the walking dead

what a joke. for it to beat out mass effect 3 (people seem to think that the bad ending, which was fixed, negates the fact that this was an incredibly fun and great game) and dishonored is laughable and to beat out other games that werent even nominated (max payne 3, diablo 3, guild wars 2, borderlands 2) is even more so.

Best PC Game - XCOM: Enemy Unknown

extremely overrated and easily the biggest disappointment of the year. either diablo 3 or guild wars 2 should have won.

Best Shooter - Borderlands 2

i would rather classify borderlands 2 as an RPG rather than a shooter. while im fine with it winning i personally would have given this to max payne 3.

Best Song in a Game - Cities by Beck

Tears by Health should have won.

Best Independent Game - Journey

Mark of the Ninja or Dust should have won. Im also surprised that Orcs Must Die 2 didnt get a nomination. Ive put so many hours into that game and have had an absolute blast with it.

Best Performance by a Human Female - Melissa Hutchison as Clementine

Jen Taylor was robbed. She gave an amazing performance and took the character of Cortana to a new level. Melissa Hutchison only won by riding the coattails of TWD winning in every other category it was nominated in.

Best Performance by a Human Male - Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack

Im fine with this winner but again Im going to have to give it to max payne (james mccaffrey) which seems to have been snubbed in every category.

Character of the Year - Claptrap

Obvious troll winner is obvious. Considering how much love TWD recieved im surprised Lee didnt win, or even get nominated for that matter.

I read about your GOTY thing and no, fixing the ending later doesn't count. Yes, it is the best game of 2012 and TWD is a joke.

Also, D3 as best PC game? You need to play better games.

For the bolded portions of this statement, I highly recommend you watch the following youtuber's videos:

It's a guy who is analyzing the whole of Mass Effect 3; not just the ending.

And Dishonored was a decent game, but it lacked a really good complicated story like The Walking Dead delivered. Please watch the following:

Science is interesting, and if you don't agree, you can f*** off.
