Why is a 2 hour game in the running for GOTY?

No Resident Evil Revelations or Kid Icarus Uprising for best handheld? At least put Revelations on there.

Wow this list sucks... Need proof? Linkin Park is actually nominated for best song in a game and everyone knows anything they produce can't be the best of anything because they suck.

My personal nomination for "best song in a game" for the last year would be: http://youtu.be/x5JvbD2Zc9I

I loved Mass Effect 3's sound track. Hell I loved the sound track from all three games.

You can tell that category is just to get some celebrities in the audience. If Linkin Park wins then you know this whole thing is BS because the game sucked that their song was in and their music is just awful. In no universe should Linkin Park ever beat out Beck.

The VGAs is just a reveal show with bits of awkward award show in the middle. DVR it and fast forward past the parts where people are talking. VGAs have had one non-reveal cool moment, and that's when the guy who did the song for Red Dead sang live.

Why is the walking dead there? we have HAD to have good enough games to edge out that 1/5th of an actual game

(It is 1/5th right?)

Journey does some excellent things artistically (it's perhaps the most interesting implementation of "The Hero's Journey" in the history of the medium) but beyond it's artistic merit (and whatever benefit people get from that) it's not actually very fun

I mean, what are you are moved by is intensely personal. So I understand both that there are people who adore Journey (because they were moved by it) and people who really don't care for it at all (because they were not.)

XCOM should be up there much more than just best PC game. I'm talking GOTY even.

You mean Linkin Park, the same group that writes anti-war songs, then turns around and puts a song in decidedly pro-war game?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012, 6:26:12 PM PST
Wait, what? Beck is horrible. I could throw random words into a song, too. It doesn't make me a good artist.

Anthony says:
yeah, i took another look at the list. what screwed me up was i just skimmed it and there isn't a little divider between the ps3 and wii u games.

Anthony says:
makes me think of the futurama episode. of course, the fact that i'm watching futurama right now doesn't hurt, lol.

I think someone needs to listen to more Beck...

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012, 6:31:58 PM PST
I despise Beck's music.

Glad to see Journey got nominated more than any other game - it's well deserved, for sure.

As others have said, though, I care about the Spike Awards for the game announcements and nothing else.

I'll keep that in mind, and be sure to leave it in my note. "Why this album, you ask? Simply because DVvM said so!"

Edit: My note will also reveal what the letters in your screen name on Amazon stand for.

If you intend to kill yourself, do not listen to Sea Change. You should watch a Muppet Movie or something instead. Best not to cultivate that feeling.

Um, thanks for the advice?
