Most sites are bankrolled by major publishers and thus are loathe to downrate their games.
    I know I've been frustrated with all of the GotYs and other awards for the past ten years as well. They need to organize one official ceremony like the Academy Awards for games so that there's a panel of legitimate critics without any industry pressure and a official Game of the Year, instead of a different one on every other site and award ceremony.

    And please god don't let it be the Spike Awards. I think an entirely new award ceremony would be best.

    I think that's the stupidest idea I've heard on the issue. Yes, let us make the pool even moar convoluted.

    A better idea is to get rid of all the stupid, pointless awards. IE. all of them.

    As a side note, DAO was awesome. Bioware has yet to fail me.

    The best solution is to just let them live on with all their crazy awards and ignore them.

    It was about freaking out over an almost 2 year old previs which is yet to have it's own music and lip syncing. But apparantly we've gotten over it and have turned it into a general discussion topic.

    Umm Hurt Locker winning with almost the lowest budget and an incredibly new director? (Not to mention while Avatar was in the run, so I don't see much industry pressure there?)

    Actually it wouldn't convolute anymore at all if you read my suggestion, which WAS to get rid of all the other pointless awards and make a more universal one.

    Back on thread topic... err....

    Ah, I misread. I thought you were talking about creating a new "legit" one on top of the others. My bad.

    It's actually more like 6-7 months old.

    Meh, then let's say pressured by political correctiveness. Say, letting a woman win...

    The Academy Awards have been a political corrective manurespreader the last couple of years.
    Many critics, critisized The Hurt locker in the first place to be a bad nominee due to it's lack of wholeness a film deemed an oscar worthy should have.
    Yes, many films sucked, but you can't say the tendency isn't biased in the oscar awarding. Take the year all black people suddenly got oscars...

    Awards and awardsshows are just crap once you start making them a certain size. They should be kept for up and coming stuff, not BEST of BESTEST... That's just too much gravy.
