Then the novelty wore off. Samuel Jackson is still the best tho. Better to stick with the longer time outlets that are more established, whichever you prefer. (GT, IGN, GameSpot, GI etc.)

So their awesome committee, over the likes of AC3, ME3, or Dishonored, pick WALKING DEAD as GOTY? Sorry. Not into that overrated, even more linear and illusion-of-choice than ME, downloadable, XBLA arcade, poorly acted, cartoony bull****.

But just read a post that GameInformer gave ME3 GOTY. Not interested in that, but I'm now curious what did the other sites give their award to, if they did yet? Did IGN, GameTrailers, or GameSpot have their awards yet?
Because in 2011, those 3 gave GOTY to different games, so I'm curious to see if they'll be split again =)

^^^ I can respect that. Just not my cup of tea ;).

The other nominees above, I enjoy much more. AC3 had a very engrossing story (on Connors side, not Desmond)

The fact that people think any type of VGA show or GOTY award means anything is pretty funny.

I seriously had no idea they were on for ten years.

I didn't even realize the Spike Channel was even that old.

I am glad walking dead won. Game made me tear up a few times.

I liked AC3 but desmonds side was terrible and no game that ends on a cliffhanger should win anything in my opinion.

As a matter of fact, sequels should be in their own category. Only original games can win

I would have been happy if dishonored or Sleeping dogs won GOTY as well.

As long as ME3 didn't win. I can still believe the gaming world isn't judged by complete m*****

It is a joke, but it's always fun to soak in the hypocrisy found within our fanbase at times lol. I think the Walking Dead GotY wasn't the best choice, but good for them.

XPLAY did theirs ^_^: http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/729580/x-plays-best-of-2012-awards-results-2012-game-of-the-year-and-more/
BL2 for GOTY
our the Witcher 2 GOTY 2011 for Best RPG

I'm happy for TWD, probably my pick out of those (too bad Far Cry 3 was too late in the year to get a nom), and its win hopefully paved the way for future digital only games to be considered more often. Then Shadowrun Returns will be nominated next year at somewhere more reputable @_@

Walking Dead was a subpar game through and through that dragged on and had such terrible writing and utterly limited mechanics that there was no room for any sense of growth. You got what you paid for: mediocrity. The only reason the game would be deserving of any awards is for its fairly innovative episodic release schedule.
