British association for Theatrical Achievement. Something like that. Mainly movie guys.

Yes, but it's Britain's main gaming award event, so you would think that would be better at picking a good game.  Last year they picked The Last of Us, that was a no brainer.  This year they pick Destiny even over games that are just as cinematic and better.

The Last of Us and then Destiny. Before that Dishonored and Portal 2. It's almost like they choose based on hype nowadays!

Most would argue that the previously picked games are of quality and standard of being a Game of the Year.  But, yeah.  Destiny was picked purely on hype.

I don't trust "most" in an industry where critics care more about their own pay than giving quality stances, and where commercially the "best" games are chosen by mouth-breathing teenagers with no comprehension of half-decent game design and plot structure. Looking at BAFTA's selections, they've picked based on hype alone for most of the past decade. I'd say the only two exceptions to that are Mario Galaxy and Mass Effect 2, because those were just as good and simultaneously weren't as hyped as other games in those years (BioShock and Red Dead). You could've flipped a coin both those years, so I can't complain about those.

I had something written up, but here's the TL;DR version because I lost it.  There never has been a good Mass Effect, The Last of Us and Read Dead Redemption are brilliant games.  Some nominations didn't deserve to win, like Portal 2, etc.  The Last of Us is the single greatest game of all time.

And that, my friend, is why I'll never take you seriously. The gameplay needs to be up to snuff for anything close to the GOAT.

The gameplay was my favorite part of the game.  I thought it was a superb game in every aspect, aside from that I wish the control scheme was more like The Evil Within with a crouch hotkey.  That's my only complaint when it comes to that game as to where I would have multiple for other games considered the best ever.  But, hey.  We all have opinions and your opinions why I can't take you serious sometimes, so we're at a crossroads.

P.S: I'm the least of a fanboy and least nostalgia driven and most creative thinking on this website. Wink

Hey, if you even want to insinuate there's a greatest game ever at all, go right ahead. I'll sit here chuckling with everyone else.

Now let's get this back on the rails.

I'm not saying it's perfect, if I can take a notch from The Last of Us.  It would be that you can't crouch and stand freely without running and getting caught.  I liked The Evil Within more in that aspect, I thought the stealth was done better in that game.  But, that's just a very measly complaint to everything I love about the game.  I do stand by saying it's the best of all time though.

It baffles me how you can say you aren't a fanboy when all you do is kiss Sony's ass with their cinematic crap games and call everything Nintendo does awful.

Look, I prefer Nintendo. I'm a fanboy of Zelda, but even among that fanbase, I still have differing opinions than most. But at the very least, I'll never say that OoT is the greatest game of all time.

There is no such thing. At the very least, give TLOU a good 20 years before you start making that claim.
