Borderlands never got it either. It's just a 'complete' package type thing.

I know this. A Game of the Year version should only be given really if it was GOTY.

Is it not really false advertising to say otherwise? Why not a complete or extended edition?

Unlike the original Borderlands, Borderlands 2 actually did win a GOTY. 10 of them in fact!

The Amazon deal with the season pass was pretty close. All that was missing were the 2 new character DLCs.

This is why I personally believe we only really need one unified game of the year, otherwise people do this.

It didn't hold a candle to Journey or The Walking Dead.

So you're suggesting there be some video game governing body who has the sole purpose of naming Game of the Year?

The industry could get together and form its own version of the Oscars or Emmys, but it really wouldn't benefit anyone. It would waste money and time. It's better than every Tom, Dick and Harry can pick whatever they want for GOTY so then you can tout that in marketing.

Awesome. Wonder how much it will go for on sale either this summer or in the winter sale. Some of the DLC looks good but I'm not buying more points to get it on my 360.

Someone could easily dislike both of those games and like Borderlands 2. They're boring alike

It's just a way of saying it has all the DLC, and in my opinion it was better than both actually.

Already have the game on 360 and PS3, maybe I'll get the GOTY edition on PC. And if Dead Island can get a GOTY edition, Borderlands 2 can definitely can get one.

I'd rather run it like The Eurovision Song contest. Get the votes in from reviewers and the one voted for most would win.

Seriously, it often makes me wonder why it's worth striving to achieve GOTY awards for those who care about them, when they're entirely subjective.

Point in fact, Uncharted 2 was GOTY pretty much undisputed right? But 2008 you had Grand Theft Auto IV, Metal Gear Solid IV and Gears of War 2, I'd really have struggled to choose that year.

More along the lines of the point I made in the post above yours.

It's not down to a single person but what's the point in having a non-universal one so developers can cash in on it. Imagine I start a website about games and get some readers coming to visit most days of the week and we choose that X title is game of the year. The developers then release a game of the year edition the year after. I mean, where do we draw the line here?

And it's at this point I'd like to say I bought the special edition version of Boarderlands 2 for PS3, I don't want to come off as being biased or not even having played it. (Now Colonial Marines and DNF, totally biased about.)

Barely any of the major reviewers chose Boarderlands 2 as a nominee. I think the majority was Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, Journey and The Walking Dead.

I don't see why they can't just release a complete or extended edition.

Borderlands 2 is a real game unlike The Walking Dead. The graphics are shitty, the game play mechanics are stupid, the way your character moves is ridiculous it looks infantile.


Your choices have simply no outcome on the ending. Still it was a very good experience. They should have called The Walking Dead Experience of the year. Please do not call it a game.

Of course it's a game.

Hey - I wouldn't like to class certain sports games as games, why would you when you can go outside and find more than enough people to play a game of football or cricket with. Go down to a local basketball court (not that we have many in England) and find people to play with.

I didn't want to consider text adventure games as games, they just seem like picking the right option out of whatever you were given.

You can blur the line as much as you'd like but it's still a game, so are sports games and the like. Though if they use the word simulate then they're trying to bend the rules a bit. Gran Turismo 5 - The realistic driving simulator - still a game etc.

I don't think you understand, it is the complete collection, it's just used as the Game of the Year edition because it sounds good. They're not re-releasing the same exact game that launched on its original launch date.

Well, the game was very popular, well received, and got a bunch of GOTY awards.

Where do you draw the line? Not here, that's for sure.

Subjectively, I don't know why you mentioned Ass Creed 3 for last year because that was a stinker. You also mentioned Gears 2 for 2008? Yuck.

Because Assassins Creed 3 was nominated for Game of the Year by many different reviewers... so was Gears of War 2...

Believe it or not, but I do some research before posting.

It's really not that important. And "one unified" GOTY is not possible. You couldn't even decide on one in your post asking for a unified GOTY

GOTY branding has to go away. Not saying that Borderlands is abusing it, but this packaging gives no actual information to customers. Who says that it is a GOTY game? Steam? Other customers? A single review site?

Anyway, going to wait for the sale on this one to add it to the Steam library.

Well this is good news in my eyes. While me and a couple friends have the game and most DLC on the 360, we're looking to move over to PC for it when our XBL subscriptions run out and the PS4 comes out. Something like this would make it all the easier.
