  1. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue with your site
    in internet explorer, would check this… IE nonetheless is
    the marketplace leader and a good section of people
    will pass over your great writing due to this problem.

  2. How much cash had to be thrown around for Dishonored to win these awards? It certainly didn’t deserve any. Short, ugly, derivative. Dishonored presented nothing new or special to deserve these awards. Corruption rules in the video game industry so I know money was exchanged for these awards.

    • Can u tell us how do u know some money exchenged? U don’t even know how they choosing the game as a winner. Dishonored was on of the best action-adventure
      And plz stop being Fanboy and N00b ;)

    • “How much cash had to be thrown around for Dishonored to win these awards? It certainly didn’t deserve any”

      My favorite game didn’t win, therefore cash for favor.

      “Short, ugly, derivative”

      Yes. Depends. Every game of a same genre is such.

      “Dishonored presented nothing new or special to deserve these awards.”

      See above.

      “Corruption rules in the video game industry so I know money was exchanged for these awards.”

      An assumption that resulted from one of the cognitive biases known as confirmation bias is not knowing. Sorry.

      Next time you are still angry about the PS3, just say so.

      • Corruption in both politics and games are really bad. Just do a Google search for bribery and corruption in the vudeo game industry, it’s almost as bad as in politics.

  3. Come on! Even if the game was bad like you say give it some respect. These guys worked really hard to make this game and are proud of what they made. So please respect them because without them you wouldn’t be playing anything.

    • I have no respect for anyone who would willingly put themselves under the Zenimax/Bethesda banner, sorry. These guys could be the greatest devs in the world, but they as a studio chose to align themselves with the company known for broken games.

      And yes I do think money exchanges hands in the gaming world to win certain awards. Corruption exists in nearly every facet of business and politics, so what makes the gaming industry any different?
