Platform AwardsXbox 360 Game of the Year
Goddamit Gamespot this is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaSRYecKaqc
You have got to be joking. This game felt dull and uninteresting with poor graphics and gameplay mechanics
i love how Black Ops 3 wasn't mentioned on any of the 3 platforms lmao, thank god i bought Halo 4 instead. but im REALLY disappointed that it didnt win GOTY for the Xbox platform, esspecially since Dishonored is not a Xbox LIVE game and you can't play online
sorry guys i meant black ops 2, i didnt have my glasses on the day i typed this so my vision was a lil blurry
@Shalabi04 Probably since black ops 3 doesn't exist...
Only platform exclusives should be in the running for "best (insert platform) of the year" sorry GS...
Halo, Farcry, and Mass Effect are all far better in my opinion. I honestly didn't see this one coming, haha.
Im sorry, but this is getting absurd...these two categories doesnt make any sense if the same game goes onto both platforms, you should really consider using exclusives instead.
Why give Dishonored both xbox and PS3 awards. It would be better to give another game a shot at it. Dishonored is great, but I would like to hear about another game.
Back in my day only platform exclusive games could win these awards. Too bad exclusivity is very dead on a Microsoft platform
@jreezy18 If you want to play good exclusives, go and read the reviews. The editorials at Gamespot think if you have an XBOX 360 this was the best game you could play in it this year so it is indeed the XBOX 360 game of the year (at least according to Gamespot)
@isaacmj I know it's the Xbox 360 game of the year according to Gamespot, it wouldn't have the award if it wasn't. I'm just pointing that it is not an Xbox 360 exclusive game winning this award, same with the PlayStation 3. Times have changed.
@jreezy18 Dishonored also won the PS3 GOTY so quit your bitching.
hmmm weres dishonored in gamespot people choice award i dont see it in the sweet 16 round man it suppose to be the best game action, ps3, and xbox 360 game of the year right ......... http://www.gamespot.com/best-of-2012/peoples-choice/index.html?page=2
@mix_yan Why? If an exclusive title is worse than a cross-platform game, it shouldn't win by default. This isn't a poll for the best platform exclusive game but the best game of 2012 for that platform.
*facepalm , obviously GS has to pull this kind of hipster crap off every year instead of chosing the so obviously best platform's game
@Warsilver no fool it will lose to guild wars 2 other wise its just a bunch of fan boys at gs. like i've been saying DISHONORED SUCKS!!!!!!! KOOL AID DRINKERS
@mr_azim It should be the best game for that system... which may or may not be an exclusive title... obviously.
WHY ISN'T HALO 4 GETTING IT, and why not love for FC3? It should get something on platform, also on the PC one why did a multiplat game get it?
Dishonored really Gamespot? Its a great game but sure you're trolling us letting it win here, Halo 4 is my best 360 game of the year. :P
As someone who loves the Halo franchise, Halo 4 does not deserve to win. While I DID have fun playing the campaign (and this is the first time since CE), some of the emotion felt artificial and contrived, like they tried too hard, and every mission was the same in the sense that you had to press some button. Spartan OPs is a joke, multiplayer is so unbelievably catered to casuals, and the game is just REALLY laggy. 343 wanted to really make this game their own, going as far as giving this game a completely new UI that's inferior to the UI that's evolved over the years. And the medals man... WHY ARE THERE SO MANY? They mean absolutely nothing now. And why is the announcer not calm and cool in this one? Just stop trying to make Halo something it isn't. I'm not saying I want the same game from yesteryear, no Halo plays like the last, but 343 changed too much of the core gameplay in order to try and attract a casual crowd, and it just alienated people like me.Also the music is nowhere near the same standard that Marty O'Donnell laid down.
@blackened83 Nah, Halo 4 or FC3 should have won. The laggy side, never had any issues. Mine is fine. The small things you are talking about, UI which? It's fine, the only down side is the setting up of matches stuff, that's bad, just get used to it and it works great.
