15. Re: Tribes Ascend Game of the Year Edition Feb 15, 2013, 03:30 Scottish Martial Arts
"Game of the Year" is meaningless and needs to go away.

Seriously. The first time it ever showed up was in a 1999 repackaging of Half-Life 1 with Team Fortress Classic. In that case, Half-Life had won something like 60+ game of the year awards, and it unanimously was the "game of the year", hence the clever bit of marketing to call it the GotY Edition, rather than a Gold Edition, or something like that. Since then, however, if a game wins a single award, no matter how minor the award, nor how irrelevant the awarding publication, then it gets repackaged and called the Game of the Year Edition.
