Nobody gives a shit about the VGAs (or /v/GAs...Clever, by the way) anymore than anyone cares about the Oscars...But at least it got acknowledged, I guess? :lol:

Oh isn't that cute. Gamers hating on MLP fans. :roll:


So the only first prize KS actually won was for Worst Gameplay?

These guys can blow me.

A not-game had the worst gameplay. Shocker...

The lesson: All awards are shit.

There's a lot of bad choices, (Not just related to KS) that make me hate these guys with a passion even when I've been completely oblivious to their existence.

That should have been right at the top of the first post. That way I wouldn't have wasted my time reading it.

I love how ME3 got all these awards for bad shit and yet every single person who voted likely knows full well they enjoyed the game and are just overly whiny about the ending...

Eh, these awards seem to pretty tongue-in-cheek (like, there is no "best game" there's just a "least worst game"), so the negative awards don't bother me. And some of those are pretty positive. Second in best writing? KS beat out some damn fine games in that category. 4th in least worst (or best, as I'm interpreting it)? That's a pretty strong recommendation.

Also, Xanatos, I believe that's your 4,000th post there. Congratulations?

Okay, cmon. Apart from the ending Mass Effect 3 was pretty decent, War Z was just a piece of ****.

I wouldn't even say Katawa Shoujo is a game, giving a visual novel first prize for worst gameplay is just........

Not an MLP fan, but the hate is just absurd.

The biggest feels though, Walking Dead game deserves to win, the story was just magnificent. I hope Clem is alright :cry: . But unlike KS, it didn't last long because I can't relate much to Walking Dead to generate more feels (since I haven't been in a zombie apocalypse, yet).

Spec Ops: The Line, did anyone else played that? I didn't expect the game to have this kind of story at all, thought it was just another generic shooter. Absolutely brilliant, yet still underrated.

How did XCOM got 5th place for biggest feels?
