Spoilers for the ending of Bioshock Infinite in the "best character" section.
Bad taste signature goes here

We held the awards at a such a date that we believe everyone has played the games they really care about, and therefore any potential spoilers  won't be grievous. For example, Bioshock has been out for nearly a year. 

That said, I'll see if DF can make a tweak in that category.

I thought it might be a good substitute for her full name.

... but the spoiler occurs even before the 'Best Character' nomination, since Elizabeth is in 'Best Voice Acting' category too.

I just realized 7 of the 8 nominees for Best Gaming Moment are from the same two games. That seems really lopsided. Also, did the giraffes hit people that hard? I must have missed something.

I mentioned in the comments below that "best innovation" isn't exactly the best word to use for that criteria.  It's meant to not focus on which new innovation made the greatest leap forward but rather which idea, big or small, seemed to be the most interesting to the voter.


As for Art Direction...yeah, that choice kind of reeks.  Between Contrast, Ni No Kuni, Tearaway, and Bioshock: Infinite there, I'd figure it would've been a toss-up between those.

Post-apocalyptic drama story. Pretty sure Fallout 3 did that five years ago, and probably many others before it. Which just supports any other nomination of being more deserving. To me it just seems like a nomination that wasn't warranted for that category, a victim caught in the hive mind whirlwind that plagued this from the start. Unless we're being ironic and N4G is the Razzie of game awards, which given these results it may as well be. 




I was suggesting the gameplay, not story.  I'm guessing most just found the nuances to the already-established Uncharted template to be the most interesting innovation.  It's another that doesn't seem like a front-runner in my mind--and I think I AM Alive's gameplay concept clicked better with its post-apocalyptic setting than here, but I don't see it as big of an offender as the art direction category.

I think I should get around to playing TLoU.

TLOU winning, I saw it coming and I'm sure others saw it coming too.
... and I've never been sure if a stand-alone DLC should fight with other DLCs, or should it fight other downloadable-only games...

... but the only thing I didn't see happening was Battlefield4 winning best multiplayer experience?
Just, wow. The people on this site have set a new low on my respect-o-meter by voting for such a broken game.

In case you're wondering what the punchline is: I voted for Battlefield 4.
