Left 4 Dead game of the year? What the fuck Destructoid?
How could you pass on such pretentious artsy fartsy games as Braid? I mean, it had watercolors. WATERCOLORS! Left 4 Dead doesn't even color it's water, much less have a painting feel to it!
Castle Crashers was on the list too, why didn't it win? I mean, besides the fact that you really couldn't get a four player game going on line, and it would occasionally delete your save, and the promised patch has been three years coming, it was still a great game. AND it did four player multi-player while Left 4 Dead was a twinkle in Valve's shiny, trusting eyes. C'mon now.
You gave the GotY award to the worst looking game of the bunch. I mean, even my DS get's better graphics than that. There's like, four colors in that game meng. There's black, flashlight, Louis, and gray. Gears of War 2 had like, five more colors than that. Not to mention a guy in a cowboy hat. THE FUCK ELSE DO YOU NEED?
And I think we've ALL forgotten about the greatest game to ever come out. Legendary: The Box...oh, they took the box off? Well, if advertising is to be believed, it's the most "legendary" game to ever come out. C'mon, it's got werewolves!
And Metal Gear Solid 4 came out. Production value alone should have won the game of the year for it. I mean, why bother with 6 hours of Left 4 Dead when I could be watching Metal Gear? FOOOOOOOOOLS THE LOT OF YOU! I need moar sneaky sneaky. You can't even sneak past the damn witch in Left 4 Dead, much less the soldier zombies.
And don't get me started on why Halo 3 didn't win this year. Just because it came out a little prior to January doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve it. Shit, I play Left 4 Dead like Halo 3 and I die all the time. When I play like Halo 3 in Halo 3 though, I fucking win. Suck on that assholes.
Why pick a game based on how much fun you and your friends can have? I'd go outside and play a sport rather than do that shit. Hell, on Xbox Live me and my friends bitch about how MEH Left 4 Dead is instead of playing it for fun. Where's my fucking prestige, huh? How am I gonna show my e-peen off if I ain't got a symbol by my name?
It's like you just went ahead and picked this game without listening to the bitching and moaning of a bunch of avatarless trolls, and just totally ignored us! I mean, c'mon I spent like 15 seconds getting an account here so I could tell Jim Sterling he's wrong. And needs moar top hat. It's like y'all are editors or something and think you write for the site. You don't. You write so I can yell at my monitor and then frantically type away what is wrong with your argument. Forget that I can't back up mine, I'm still right. My apinion, it's grate.
So I just wanted to express how wrong you were to pick Left 4 Dead. Play with me tonight so I can show you how fast I can get through No Mercy.
