Amazing what the hype train can do for a game. Beating out original titles(in certain categories) and just sweeping the floor because it's the most popular game there. TLOU may be a good game, it may even be an excellent game to some, but it did nothing ground breaking or revolutionary, nothing really new or different, it just did it what it did well.

Oh well, much like the Spike TV awards and other award shows, it means little when it comes down to the individual. All of that said, I think we can all agree Diablo 3 getting best RPG of year is pretty laughable. I honestly want to know who got together and decided on that one. D3 isn't the worst game ever but RPG of the year on a port from a year old game? Against actual new games? I'm not feelin' it.
