I understand if you don't care for the title, but surely you accept the notion that your opinion doesn't mimic nearly anyone else's regarding this game.
Depends on how you look at it.
Received a graphical downgrade and lied about it, banned users from their forums if they even spoke about it. Brought out PR that it wasn't downgraded and then admitted 2 weeks later that it was. Withheld reveiw copies and didn't let anyone see it until release and EVEN THEN it was in a piddle-poor state that no one could get higher than 30 FPS on the game lets not forget the brilliantly crap balancing between difficulty levels and massively. huge. empty "open world".
From a personal stantpoint they lied on several points including it being an "Open world game" which it's nothing more than several areas strung together with load screens, unlike truer open-world games which are one big area with several smaller maps / dungeons. I didn't find the game all that interesting, infact I thought it was some-what of a mysnomer. Playing a monster-hunter that doesn't really do much monster hunting but deals with humans more whilst not "choosing sides" but being the lap-dog of lords.
I would've thought that GTA V got the most titles as it's a much more polished game which had more effort spent on it, I can't help but feel that because this game has gratuitous T&A and was released later in the year people had forgotten about Rockstars game.
Also annoys me that they do these awards before the year is up. Games released between now and next year will be largely forgotten because people think of the year as starting in January, another feeling of "Lets praise CDPR and TW3 before Fallout hits".
I really don't think this game is deserving of the praise it gets, don't get me wrong it isn't a bad game by any stretch of the imagination but not worthy of so many awards.. than again looking down the list it is litterally nothing more than a popularity contest and probably rigged at that.
