Yeah, and look at their reasoning...pathetic



gamespot is the most biased site , people talk about IGN but gamespot is the most garbage site i see



 

I cannot see any rational logic (ie not fanboyism) behind such as ludicrous decision. LBP2 is a must have inclusion at least for the PS3 catagory, and while I'm not exactly a huge fan of Uncharted, U3 should have been included. The PS3 list is simply a joke

I'm afraid I have to agree. I used to love that site a few years ago. Now it's just laughable.

Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling together is an R.P.G? I spent a month playing it under the impression that it was a turn based strategy game. I guess they know better.



i have definitely noticed a huge drop in quality and integrity in Gamespot over the past year or so. i used to go there all the time, now i cant remember the last time i went there.



I'm not usually one to bitch about GOTY awards (In fact I think they are mostly bullshit), but this selection is HIGHLY suspect.



Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted 1, inFamous Second Son, Rocket League

Dirt 3? Are they on purposely trolling or something?



Can we just start ignoring GameSpot?
