Wow. A year where CoD wasn't handed best shooter. How'd that manage to happen?

Also, has it really been that bad of a year graphically that Halo actually managed to win the graphics segment?

Oh, and i disagree with the wii/rpg goty too. Since the VGA's are pretty much an american thing, that really should have been Xenoblade Chronicles. It's better than the nsmb series, and far better than ME3 was.

Halo had an enormous budget so they can spend tons on artwork and making the best use of polygons, also ms could have paid for this prize, you never know. COD is becoming boring and predictable to a lot of players, they don't get high ratings on amazon anymore.

I hoped no one would mention this awards ceremony. It is a joke. Clearly something was wrong with the judging because The Walking Dead, game of the year? and Telltale developers of the year?
I know this is all opinion but really? would anyone say Walking Dead was game of the year?

Well, not necessarily the best of the year, but certainly among the best.

If they had waited just a week to do these awards probably Far Cry 3 would have filled several of those spots instead of the games they picked.

neither Cod nor medal of honor were good games.
But these awards arent about how good games are anyway :D

Glad that Me3 and Dishonored made it to the list.
Also no ac3? :(

Possible the delayed PC release put it off the list

but from what I've played of it so far I wouldn't vote for it

Yes! Very strange considering how popular they were once!
But i guess people dont like spending hours mining minerals and building armies. It's much esier to shoot things with auto aim :D

Still considering all starcraft is comming out soon!

The last big rts game I remember being released is Anno 2070. And that was last November I think. I don't recall any big names in that genre being released in 2012.
