Me too and at least somebody is getting sick of it.

For you two: When was the last GOTY given to a fps game on Gamespot?

At least be somewhat familiar with the site before acting surprised.

What, you don't remember that part in Journey where you have to kill desert zombies with random machine guns left behind by that convoy of marines?

DID YOU EVEN PLAY THAT GAME?

Ehh, it's far from GoTY material to me, but it's far from a bad game. I don't really have any strong thought on this one way or the other.

It's bullcrtap and I'm glad to see a major player fighting against it.

This though.

Feels like just yesterday that people were raging hard when Gamespot and IGN named Journey their GOTY. Crap never really does change, does it?

I had fun once and it was awful.

A couple other games I'd have put ahead of it, but very deserving winner none the less and I like that a handheld game took it.

On a sidenote, I got particular enjoyment out of reading and reacting to some of the comments on the announcement video GS posted to youtube. The mad was absolutely hilarious.

Sort of off topic, but The Guardian newspaper in the UK awarded Super Mario 3D World their GOTY. The guy that does all their video game coverage is really good (he was featured in the amazing Charlie Brooker video game special a few weeks ago), so it holds a bit of weight with me, more than somewhere like IGN anyway.

Top 10:

Super Mario 3D World
The Last of Us
Gone Home
GTA V
Papers, Please
Link Between Worlds
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Proteus

Again, no FPS. People just like to say that all people care about are FPS, but only the really, really good ones actually get recognised in these lists.

I have to say I can see why Gamespot picked A Link Between Worlds as their GOTY. The more I play this game the more and more I am enjoying it. It's nice to see a game on the handheld get GOTY let alone a Nintendo handheld.
