People's Choice: Witcher 3
>Dark Souls with a Lovecraft skin BTFO
>Fallout 3.5 BTFO
>Shit story Kojimashit BTFO
Remember when /v/ said this game was the blunder of the century because of the graphical downgrade and wouldn't win any awards or be well received?
Before Witcher 3:
Haha downgrade. Fucking CDPR polack jews!
After Witcher 3:
Le combat and gameplay!!!
Way After Witcher 3, during GOTY Season:
The Magnum Opus of this medium. This generation's Citizen Kane.
What did the general public on /v/ mean by this?
I would've picked Bloodborne, but MGS5 was fine too. I can see Fallout 4 winning since the Elder Scrolls games are insanely popular, although I really don't get it.
But Witcher 3? The story, dialog and general atmosphere are well done but the combat is just fucking atrocious. It's better than Fallout, sure, but that's like saying piss is better than shit and it's still way the fuck behind MGS5 and Bloodborne in that regard. It just plays like a poor man's Dark Souls and nothing more.
Don't get me wrong, I know there's more to a game than gameplay but if what you're doing for the vast majority of the game sucks then it's a shitty game.
oh shit, here comes the >bad combat meme
The combat is 9/10
Your beloved le souls gitgud might have a 10/10 combat system, but just because TW3 doesn't carbon-copy it doesn't make it shit
No, it's shit because the enemies telegraph themselves like retards. The lock on targeting system type of shit was popularized in Ocarina of Time but even that game had deeper and more rewarding combat.
For once I agree with IGN. It was the best in my opinion.
Fallout 4 didn't really change much and MGS V felt derivative after a while. Bloodborne is questionable but in the end it's an improvement on the Dark Souls formula but it's essentially the same game. Witcher 3 felt the most ambitious and pulled it off for the most part aside from the visuals getting fucked up the ass. My only real complaint about the game.
I love how mad this game makes Bloodborne faggots.
>fucking normies like Witcher, I'm too hardcore for that
Bloodborne was a fine game, combat-wise and improved on the combat so much. Can't wait for Dark Souls 3. Your cherry-picked webums are silly.
Witcher 3 deserves the overall GOTY though. It got everything, for the most part, right. Damn good game.
You messed up your greentexting my dude, shame it would have been such a great comment
Anyways, Witcher 3 is the best game released this year and will be remembered as a classic of this generation years from now, stay mad Kojima and Bethseda drones

No, in fact /v/ normally is more cynic, with claims that the most dumbed-down, casual, shitty games are normally the most popular
Bloodborne can be boiled down to the same thing mate.
Oh but it has le fhtagn clooloo sickdark'n'edgy theme so it's automatically GOTYAY.
I liked Bloodborne and was a forerunner on my OF THE YEAR list until Hearts of Stone but come on. The combat is nothing special there either.
