Seeing the full list of nominees has helped me come to the conclusion that almost every website, including neoseeker, has terrible lists and the reviewers barely play anything other than typical big AAA releases

Just wondering how come you guys listed The Last of Us as your GOTY nominee which you guys seemed to dislike but games like Pokemon X/Y, Beyond:Two Souls, and CoD:Ghosts are missing from the list which reviewed higher than it. Pokemon X/Y was given a 10/10 yet it's not even on the list lol.....

Yeah, that's my profile picture, I like the Nep Nep but that doesn't have anything to do with me stating that there's an overabundance of the typical AAA releases all over this list with little to nothing else. I agree with you completely on Pokemon though, why isn't that on the list, or any of the other amazing 3DS games that came out, or any thing from the Wii U, or just anything that wasn't the same predictable, over-hyped nonsense.

For those with questions: we definitely had more games we wanted to nominate, including Pokemon, Outlast, Dead Rising 3 and others. However, we had to make some difficult choices in deciding what to include versus what to cut. It doesn't mean we didn't consider any other games to be nominee material; we just had to trim our choices down.

We do try to keep the games varied, and we do not exclude indie games by any means! However, we take care not to judge games based on budget, like AAA-status versus indie.

Gone Home and Papers Please are typical AAA releases? Also opinions.

I disagree with some things on this list, why? opinions.

Slash Short story is review scores are generally graded based on a set criteria using a complicated scale through a complicated process, while Game of the Year is a much more free-form process in which review scores play absolutely no role.

ImmoStride There is no unfortunately no perfect list apart from your own. Lydia and I try very much to be writers and critics that, while you may not agree with us, you can respect the opinions of.

We write with honesty and integrity and hope very much that, considering the close relationship we try and have with the community, you can see why both Lydia and I as people decided on these games.

To add to Bluexy's statements, review scores are honestly a funny thing. I bet that if you sat down, thought about the last ten games you played, and assigned ratings (out of ten) to them, you'd find that the scores just aren't representative to what you like best.

For instance, I'd probably give Tetris a 10 because it's quite literally a flawless puzzle game, but I can think of dozens of games I believe to be far superior than it for various reasons. I give Tetris that perfect score in a vacuum, not while comparing it to other games. At best, I'd compare it to similar games in the puzzle genre, but even that could get to be a bit difficult.

If you had gone more along the indie route, there would be people complaining that you ignored all the great AAA titles of the year. It's a vicious cycle.

Clearly you need to make a list of every game that comes out in 2014 and not announce any winners to make everyone happy next year. Might wanna get started on those articles right now...

By the way, my GOTY didn't even make the list, but do you see me complaining?

Yeah, you do, but that doesn't make it right.

I honestly just wanted to talk some smack, don't care about indie games getting recognition, just get annoyed seeing the same few big releases on every list while others get shafted. I'm glad I got the responses I did though, shows this place has a better community than most since I never got screamed at, but talked to in a rational manner.

hey dude, you see that +1 there to the right of your post? i usually don't give a lot about the anon thumb system but you officially deserved that!

anyway in my case i'm just happy to see that metro last light made it to the list. it's the only one i have played on the list of nominees so far but it was worth every buck. the dlc stories (with the exception of the spider level) didn't stand out too well though it was too fast and there was too much to tell.
