Lineup looks good, and stupid casual fans can't bog the awards down with their votes!

The only thing I disagree with out of nominees is that MK8 didn't get nominated for soundtrack. Good for Boris, getting nominated for SSO though. Well, I also don't agree with Hearthstone getting a GotY nomination, but there's almost no chance it wins, so no harm there. 

I also appreciate the "Best Remaster" category, so that there's no question about where they should be.

This reminds me: Expect Domey nomination threads soon. Probably two weeks or so.

It's industry-based voting. CoD and Destiny both have little chance if we focus on mechanics alone. Far Cry has a decent shot but most reviews have noted that it's just FC3 in the mountains. I'd put it between Titanfall and Wolfenstein because of this. Probably Titanfall. So if that's what you meant, I agree lol.
