video games awards

Post by Todinho » December 13th, 2012, 8:21 pm

Well the year is almost over and at this time many websites start giving awards to the best games of the year but everytime this happens I always feel like these awards are missing the point,I mean which ps3 or 360 games were the best this year?Arent they all games why do the system they are in matter?I think there is very few awards for specific aspects of games for example where are the awards for best level design or best use of mechanic, both are crucial to make a good game but there are no awards for them that I have seen.Im just wondering if anyone feel the same and if you think these awards categories can change for the better,also just for fun if you could give awards to the games of this year what would they be?

Mine if anyone's is curious:
Game fo the year:Journey
best level design:Mark of the ninja
best art direction:Journey
best narrative:Spec ops:the line
best use of sound:botanicula
best use of game mechanic: choice in the walking dead

Game of the year: Journey
Best level design: Tokyo Jungle
Best art direction: Catherine
Best narrative: Max Payne 3/Mass Effect 3
Best use of sound: Resident Evil Revelations
