Why do they even bother with these bullshit awards ceremonies? Everyone know W3 was the game of the year.
These aren't popularity contests, they're members of the game development industry assessing the works of their peers. You'll see Witcher 3 did win a few awards this year, just not the top spot.
It's entirely about who's buying what. That's all it ever is. If you don't understand that, you're retarded or a shill.
If you're suggesting that its quantity sold (and im pretty sure you are not), than FO4 very likely beat Witcher 3. According to VGChartz.com (and I know, they don't have 100% track record) but even if we round up/down a million units, Witcher is around 5 mil (im sure excluding Steam sales) and FO4 is at @ 10 mil. So even if we pad W3 with 2+ mil, it still isnt close.
I loved W3, and still plan to return to it when I have time. Just started playing F04 and im pleased with the presentation. Atmosphere, and even the graphics are suitable. I have very little to comment on the story as Im only a few hours in.
I respect the fact that DICE is about developers awarding developers. I feel peers often offer the most objective reviews and would carry much more weight with me than any internet game site.This comment was edited on Feb 19, 2016, 16:36.
