LMAO @ Spike Video game awards GOTY nominees

I'm actually really glad that Walking Dead is getting the recognition is truly deserves.

$25 for all the episodes. More than worth it. It isn't always about challenge but often it is about the experience as a whole.

Can we all just finally agree that all awards shows are completely pointless and only about the people involved in whatever industry the award is for patting themselves on the back for two hours?


This. I agree

Borderlands 2 was one of the most anticipated games of 2012 and one of the most successful games this year. If it's not even a nominee for GotY then the award itself is a fraudulent joke.


Successful =/= good

I don't agree with Journey being on there but I can see why they picked it.

I would also add Borderlands 2 and XCOM to the GotY nominee pool.

Aww...buncha casuals and teenagers mad that their run-n-gun game didn't make the grade? That's so sad.

Xcom already won.

No need to even have the show.

Journey and The Walking Dead make sense. They're, pretty much, the only games on PS3 this year that have even an ounce of creativity behind them, rather that just being brain dead generic and required no actual thought into the game like everything else.

Good choices.

Yea the only contenders should be shooters.



shooters are overrated to me

Spike is trying to avoid the stereotype of being for dumb call of duty frat boy gamers. Either way you should never take game awards seriously.

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...

Well Journey did win runner-up place in Japan's GOTY, with Gravity Daze in first place soooo.. can't say it's a complete surprise..
