i thought Zombie U was a Wii U exclusive?

It is.

I would like to see Journey win game of the year, but I think it will end up going to Dishonored

Hooray! Journey made the list!

For me, it's either Journey or Dishonored. Far Cry 3 could give it some competition, but it's not out yet, so we'll have to see if it ends up being GOTY material.

How in the world can a game that hasn't even been released yet(ZombieU) be on the list for game of the year? It might be an awesome experience, but it should be ineligible.

New to the Spike VGAs, are you?

Journey is quite possibly one of the most boring games I've ever played and one of the few where I felt like I completely wasted my time and money after I finished it. It boggles the mind that it got such rave reviews and is nominated for so many different things.

I will watch the VGAs, not because I care about the awards, and not because I enjoy their brand of "humor" but because there will probably be some announcement about Dragon Age 3 at the VGAs.

The "Best DLC" category this year is just sad.

How can AC3 be the best of anything? That game is beyond disappointing.

That's really the only reason I watch it. Game announcements. The actual awards and the show itself are so unbelievably pathetic and worthless it's not even funny.

It's really best if you don't take the Spike awards seriously. They're sort of targeted at the lowest common denominator of video game culture, and as anybody who has played online recently can tell you, the lowest common denominator is awfully low.

I mean, last year they had a repeated skit in which an actor in Halo Spartan armor would engage in live-action teabagging on stage. This is what the VGAs are.

Oh, I don't take the Spike awards, or any other VG awards seriously.

The GDC awards and the D.I.C.E. awards are worth paying attention to, but nobody else is, really.

Why exactly did you find it boring? I am curious because I still haven't played it. I don't mean this in a ridiculing way but there are very few on this board who haven't liked it.

The whole game is spent pointlessly meandering around with zero risk or challenge. You basically pay $15 to look at the graphics and listen to the music. Despite the fact that the game takes about 2 hours to complete it feels agonizingly long and I was begging it for it to be over long before the end.

Prankster says:
Did you play it online? Isn't co-op the main attraction of this game? The fact that two people are isolated in the vast desert. You could try it again. Maybe it would be a different experience.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012 12:00:21 PM PST
uncledonnie3 says:
Yeah I did. I felt the co-op, if you really want to call it that, was completely pointless and added nothing to the game. You basically get the same exact experience if someone is with you in a particular area or not.

what a mostly terrible nominated list.
