    IGN Awards - Best PC game and more

    It seems IGN has given GW2 a few awards in its 2012 roundup, no overall GOTY but still a pretty good haul for Arenanet!

    Best PC Game
    Best MMO Game
    Best PC Graphics

    war z?

    Trololol?

    You have to be kidding?

    OT: Grats Anet, I agree that its the best PC game and MMO of the year, graphics i would not really know, but i love the world and visuals in gw2 as well.
    "From the first to the end of the Sixth Generation of consoles, for THIRTY FOUR YEARS, this is what gaming was and it was FANTASTIC! You enjoyed the experience and gaming was what it was supposed to be FUN, COMPLETE, no DLC back then the new content was called a sequel and we waited eagerly for it."

    Nah but a consolidated "I'm here to whine about a game I no longer play" would be quite brilliant, then you and bovinity and the few vocal other ones could easily navigate to a section perfect for you and the rest of us wouldn't need to see you guys repeat yourself for the 1000th time.
    When in doubt, mumble...

    Isn't that the entire point of appreciating graphics? The idea that the best-looking graphics should go to the game with the highest fidelity, with no consideration for aesthetic appeal, is arguably one of the biggest downfalls in the gaming industry. Not saying their opinion is correct, but what constitutes a best-looking game should consider more than just how powerful the engine is.

    How about a, "Rushes to the rescue every time someone says something negative about my Holiest of Holies game." section? <3

    2012 was a terrible year. But I really dont agree with GW2 being GOTY, not that ide agree with any game being GOTY. Ive played it extensively and while its good its not as revolutionary as people made it out to be. It has ALOT of things they need to iron out and change.

    Just going to jump in here early, don't start bickering about things, chaps. People have their own opinions, and as long as they're posting constructively and not attacking others, that's fine.

    How would that work if you guys are still there? logic isn't big with you is it?

    There was a warning to stop this kind of bickering and stay on topic. Infracted. -Edge

    Even more impressive is how many media outlets are giving The Walking Dead honorable nods. Looking at IGN alone The Walking Dead appears in almost every category as winner or runner-up.

    Looking at The Walking Dead across many of these EOYs it might be the most critically acclaimed game of the year.

    That's interesting.

    I agree with IGN's opinion on GW2 for all 3 catagories. If you have the machine to run it on very high settings, the game world and attention to details is remarkable. And on my modest I7 2600, Radeon 6850 it looks awesome and runs very smooth. Even with a lot of other players on the sceen at once. I cannot remember it ever crashing...not even once. And I been playing sence early Sept. It is revolutionary to me in many ways. From the way they do PVP and keep it seperate from the open world PVE ( perfect ) to no mob or resource stealing to worry about. And they way the inventory and instant sorting and such is done for crafting mats is very well done. The way questing is handled is done great too.

    I think it's well-deserved though. Telltale has done some awesome stuff and they should be awarded for it.

    As for GW2, for me it was the best in all 3 categories, especially aesthetics. The attention to detail in the environments is staggering. There are definitely some gameplay issues to be worked out, but they have a really solid, really promising game.

    How the heck can GW2 win best PC graphics? IGN should read up on the definition of graphics

    careful it's graphics not aesthetics, don't mess with the professionals

    Meh, it's obvious the name is wrong, not the criteria. On graphics alone, generic shooter #543 would probably win, but MMO's can't possibly have graphics as advanced a those games. GW2 beats them when it comes to aesthetics, though.

    I would assume they're not specifically referring to graphical fidelity, but to visuals as a whole (since the overwhelming majority of people don't make a hard distinction between art style/aesthetic, and visual fidelity). If it's talking about visuals as a whole, I can see it winning the category as it scores pretty high in both style/aesthetic and the visual fidelity category. It doesn't top either, but I think it's a very strong choice overall.

    GW2, graphics, good? :S

    I really wouldn't vote gw2 as the best game, the best graphics or the best mmo of 2012.

    And I would vote it a best game (becouse **** *** Diablo 3 RMAH and **** *** Mass Effect 3 ending) and best MMO (becouse **** *** World of Dailycraft). Best graphics? I dont know, on this one I am not sure, didnt seen enough games this year myself to judge but I like the art style of GW2. IMO GW2 graphics is good. Relevant? Irrelevant? Opinions.

    I cant say I agree with all of it, but GW2 is definitely better than a few titles to release and live into 2012. I think Rift deserves a bit of credit for SL, probably one of the better games Ive played this year.
