    i wouldn't call it goty if pretty much all my friends are already back on retail or came back for classic and are playing retail after 10year+ breaks

    the hype was huge for sure and i enjoyed lvling in old world again but everything else is mediocre or simply bad

    i didn't even bother to play other nominated games tho (and im only interested in Borderlands once it's get properly released on pc)

    I feel like I’m missing something, I don’t get it. Am I suppose to read the twitter comments or is it that they seem to be linking sponsors who I would assume bought the spot?

    Classic is good, but game awards are trash.

    I don’t hate on Classic. People are free to enjoy what they want. I couldn’t care less. I had a blast leveling to 60 again with a few friends but I am done with it.

    But game of the year? Hell no! What a punch in the face to those who developed completely NEW games that are very good too. Sure it’s an arbitrary and subjective award that doesn’t mean anything. But it’s like giving the Nobel prize to someone who rediscovered penicillin.

    This is actually the biggest take away.
    I have no idea what this award even is, but the fact that people think of it so highly is a testament to that.
    Sadly, its not something you can build on the future with.

    If a game launched in Classic WoW's state today it would be a studio destroyer.

    A LOT of the praise is due to nostalgia, but there are positives to be learned for sure.

    None of the others you mentioned are PC exclusive.

    Lol at all the people getting angry over Classic as usual. I haven't played many new games this year so I have no idea who else to give it to, but at this point I just really appreciate a game that doesn't overwhelm me with a cash shop and microtransactions which seems to be the norm for most games these days. Classic has stayed the most pure out of most new games.

    Does exclusivity matter? Gears 5 won Xbox GOTY, and that's also on PC.

    It doesn’t. Overwatch won PC game of the year a few years ago.

    Ah, my bad then.

    Any idea how they got their nominees? Doesn't seem like there was much competition for WoW here at all.

    1.) Age of Wonder Planetfall
    2.) Anno 1800
    3.) Dicey Dungeons
    4.) F1 2019
    5.) Heaven's Vault
    6.) Slay The Spire
    7.) Sunless Skies
    8.) Teamfight Tactics
    9.) Total War 3 Kingdoms
    10.) World of Warcraft - Classic

    From Best Audio to the Ultimate Game of the Year itself, millions of votes were cast in The Golden Joysticks Awards online voting, as people worldwide showed some love to their favourite titles of the last 12 months
    This is a popular vote from millions of people, not based on reviews by game critics or on certain criteria/standards. These kind of awards are to show what games the average consumers likes and apparently a lot of people like Classic.

    It's not a free website if they're charging someone for content or user data. Duh.

    Honestly, even if you enjoy Classic you should be rolling your eyes at the notion that a 15 year old game is the 2019 Game of the Year. Just stupid.

    Sure enough, there it is. A reply within one minute of the post.

    It's actually really pathetic and sad and I don't understand it.

    clearly you dont understand that when a game wins an award its actually NOT crappy.

    the fact that YOU, which is ONE person doesn't like it means you are in the MINORITY and that YOU don't understand what good taste in games is anymore. Even if you had at all.

    Sounds to me like you're beefed up on getting shit handed to you like a little milennial...ive played every wow xpac since the end of vanilla all the way through BFA and you know what, there's a VERY good reason why the current games's because people don't have to work for shit, it has no value and they burn through content that much easier....

    when you conquer something quickly it doesnt have any has no value if there is no challenge....classic has challenge and value because it makes you WORK for your go sit down in the corner with all your participation awards and relax little boy.

    no, we really shouldn' should be rolling your eyes and then open them and look at how fucking stupid you are for realizing that older games are better and then actually ask yourself, well gee i wonder why that is.....

    but again people like you who love shit being handed to them hate when you have to actually earn something.
