Skyrim, Game of the Year?…
So Saturday at the Video Game Awards on SpikeTV, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was crowned Game of the Year.
As much as I like playing Skyrim, I questioned the award.
Well, everyone who is playing Skyrim right now will agree to this, the game is very glitchy! Sometimes it is so glitchy that it becomes able to be played. So my question is this, how does a game that is so glitchy be awarded game of the year?
Anyone of the other games would have been very acceptable. They were all AAA titles. I asked a couple people and one of the answers I got was, well, they can release patches. Yes this is true, but I just feel that the title of game of the year should have some sort of quality control. Skyrim, as big and beautiful as it is, being that glitchy, in my opinion, comes across as an unpolished product.
Another person said, hey, it’s a popularity contest. I am more app to agreeing with that reason. In that case, an unfinished, unpolished game, which could be a piece of crap, could, if enough people voted for it, be game of the year. Then it become a case of votes and not much really quality; a kind of fan camp vs. fan camp.
Am I wrong in thinking this way? Share what you think with us.
