"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."

See, the thing is that with games like Journey, Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus, you can't just "play" them, you have to experience them.

This list is atrocious. Xenoblade and Halo 4 aren't nominated....

Max Payne should be nominated for best graphics to instead of journey

One of the funny things about the nominations, besides all the arguments revolving around what should or should not be on the list, is how the voice actress for Sheppard in ME3 is nominated for Best Performance By a Human Female but the voice actor for male Sheppard isn't nominated for Best Performance By a Human Male.

After having watched Mrs. Bear play all three ME games multiple times as a female character, and having seen scenes with male Sheppard, I think this is fitting. To me whenever I think of Commander Sheppard, I always picture the character Mrs. Bear created, and that voice is in my head. It makes Sheppard more interesting as a female. There aren't enough strong female protagonists in games.

Im mostly trolling, but it was in reference to the GOTY Winner that is generally recognized for that year as the GOTY, which, Nintendo nor Halo have been recognized for this gen.

Yes, the real game of the year awards don't happen until the spring.

the voice actor for Male Sheppard isn't that bad. and honestly, while i like Jennifer Hale as a voice actor (despite the fact that from what i've heard she doesn't even like video games), her work as sheppard is not her best.

Jennifer Hale's performance as Commander Shepard is wonderful (particularly with the renegade lines.)

Mark Meer's performance as Commander Shepard is... adequate.

3 out of 4 nominees from the Best Handheld / Mobile Game category are Vita games?
I tought the Vita had none.

Anthony says:
go on and continue being proud of the vita for having more nominations on a crappy awards show that no one really respects. at all. Mario's most likely going to win anyway.

Modern Bear says:
To me I also thought the ending to ME3 just seems better as a female character too. I think I feel this way because you always see the male lead in movies or games making the big sacrifice to save the day, and rarely see a female character in such a situation. To me it makes the ending of ME3 more special.

I know that may piss off people who didn't like the ending of ME3, even after the changes, or people who think women should be getting them a sandwich instead of saving the galaxy, but too bad. Maybe this makes me some kind of video game feminist.

Agreed.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012 8:39:14 PM PST
Not bad. I do hope Nolan North wins an award.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012 8:42:35 PM PST
Jen Taylor needs to win female performance, Journey needs to win original score and song, xenoblade best rpg, Master Chief needs to win character of the year.

These are the VGAs. Nobody has to win anything. There is almost no awards show with less credibility than the VGAs have.

I mean, this happened at the VGAs last year! http://youtu.be/OYgZTsdYQlk

You almost want the things you like not to win, so as not to be associated with this!

Oh, since you were talking about experiencing things, experience this...

Possibly one of the most unholy things a human has witnessed.
