Looks like another GotY for the Mass Effect series. This one isn't even close given the other nominees

God forbid that people actually enjoy different types of games, and thus the games actually get some credit they deserve.

XCOM should have been on that list.

Spike deserves major credit for choosing Dishonored. Past GOTY nominees have typically been just popularity contests but Dishonored is more of a hidden gem. A very inspired choice.

Journey and Walking dead made the list and games like Borderlands 2 didnt.. This game has the second highest metacritic this year right behind ME3.... Journey and Walking dead are great games but small psn games should never make GOTY.

I always knew they where a joke but really, lmao...

Walking Dead deserves to be a nominee IMHO anyways. That is the only game to come out this year that held my attention, made me anticipate and get excited for the next episode, it was the only game that actually got an emotional reaction from me. Everything about it held onto me, each consequence based on my actions pulled at me and made me actually think about what I was going to do and say to the characters. I cannot wait for the last episode as I have every character possible with me ready for its release.

As far a GOTY goes my personal one is Borderlands 2 and its a shame it didn't get nominated. I didn't like Journey at all and TBH I am pretty shocked its actually a nominee, I know people love it and its art direction but it never sat well with me, come to think of it none of the games from that developer interested me at all.

I gotta say it surprised me. Dishonored even though i did not like it much is nice to see it in there. Walking Dead and Journey seem like really odd choices. ACIII was a given. Halo 4 and Borderlands absence seem really odd. Mass Effect being in with all the flak it got seems weird too even though it was great.

I am glad P4 Arena got nominated for best fighting game, though i have a feeling Tekken Tag will take that one.

Don't see how it's a hidden gem, its commercial comes almost as much as Black Ops 2. Spike VGA have always been about stuff like that.
