Do you agree with the Spike VGX winners?
So now that we have the full list of award winners of the Spike VGX, we beg the question: are you in agreement or not?
Certainly in many of the categories, the eventual winners seemed like no-brainers, but we also ended up with a few surprised, at least as far as we’re concerned.
Below, you’ll find a list of the winners, as well as some of our own thoughts, and we’d love to hear what you think and which games you feel deserved to win.
Thoughts: This one was a fun one to see develop, as you would’ve thought that Bungie’s Destiny would be leading the pack, but after more and more positive previews for Titanfall had been published since E3, the game has picked up a ton of steam and is easily one of the Xbox One’s best looking future titles.
Thoughts: We’ve played each one of these games and while Infinity Blade 3 is pretty awesome, especially on the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display, PvZ 2 is non-stop fun and it doesn’t cost you a dime!
Thoughts: This was a tough one and GTA V was easily one of the best games in 2013. But still, there’s something about The Last of Us that really gained our attention and love and was unlike anything else we played this year, which is why we feel it should’ve gotten the nod over Rockstar’s latest baby. Super Mario 3D World is also pretty damn amazing, but we’re glad it at least made it on the list of nominees.
Thoughts: Studio of the Year sounds about right, so why didn’t The Last of Us get voted best game?
Thoughts: This was a no-brainer for us, as Bioshock Infinite was bad ass. COD: Ghosts is fun, as is Battlefield 4, but both have seen their share of issues especially on next-gen so they feel unfinished.
Thoughts: We’d say GTA V and The Last of Us were both better games than AC IV, but when you take into account that we’re looking more at the adventure aspect of it, Assassin’s Creed IV does have the upper hand.
Thoughts: You really couldn’t go wrong with either game, and there shouldn’t be a loser in this category, but the gameplay, and presentation of NBA 2K14 did stand out, if only just slightly, especially on the Xbox One and PS4.
Thoughts: We’re sure the Pokemon faithful would have something to say about this one.
Thoughts: Killer Instinct is fun and looks great but doesn’t feel like a complete experience. Injustice on the other hand, is easily the sickest fighting game this year, regardless of what platform you’re playing it on.
Thoughts: This was a slam dunk for Forza 5, although NFS: Rivals is quite enjoyable.
Thoughts: When Blood Dragon released earlier this year, many of us were already calling it the best DLC in years.
Thoughts: Brothers was an under-the-radar game with a really cool story and was certainly distinct. But better than GTA V or Bioshock Infinite? Man, not sure about that one. How did you guys feel about this?
Thoughts: Another no-brainer!
Thoughts: Super Mario 3D World may be the best Mario game in years. It takes plenty of chances, looks great, plays amazingly, and lets you play how you want to without hand holding you much. For us, this is the best Wii U game and straight up Nintendo game in 2013.
Thoughts: We wholeheartedly agreed with this one as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds has become of of our most favorite Zelda games ever. It was challenging, touched on the nostalgic feelings of A Link to the Past, and offered up some unique puzzles while remaining charming.
Thoughts: Slam dunk!
Now we want to hear who you thought deserved each of these awards, or if there’s a particular game that you think got shafted.
