    I hope it wins.

    Not so much because I think it deserves it, but because it will result in the whine thread to end all whine threads.

    It's quite easy, when thinking about it:

    They've got 750 gold and now are allies. :D

    Raging? No. It's just ridiculous.

    Any honest person would have to admit that in the current state of Civ5, if there really isn't any better PC game available, then it would be more honest to state that PC games are in such bad shape that no price should be given at all.

    Oh, I agree that Civ V shouldn't receive any awards for being best PC game of the year. At the same time, I feel that most of the complaint threads are grossly over-exaggerated and sensationalized. So, going by some people's tendencies to get all drama queen about a video game, I know that somebody is breaking a keyboard over this :lol:

    I totally love the direction this thread will head into a page from now.

    Oh I totally agree. It won't beat StarCraft 2 anyhow so all of this is moot.

    I'm merely imagining the 8,000 page flamefest that would result if it did.:lol:

    It won't be Starcraft of course. The idea that the most anticipated game of the decade would lose to CiV or any game is hillarious.

    Then again, if they had released the game last year they probably would've stood a chance.

    Meh, I stopped paying attention to these things earlier this year (finally). They usually seem to only choose games by major publishers (ModDB's Game of the Year contest is actually half-decent though, as they have tonnes of mods and indie games).

    Spike VGA Awards? MTV Awards? All glorified commercials for the nominees and winners.

    Just like Obama got a Nobel Prize for what he is supposed to accomplish in his Presidency, Civ5 will get an Award for what it is supposed to achieve as a good game. :D

    I don't know what kind of presence SpikeTV has in the gaming world but this year in gaming PC/console has been lots of flash but not much else.

    Mass Effect 2 biggest EA-syndrome game loser released this year. I say released because NBA Live/ELITE/CANNED is technically the biggest under their banner this year.
    ME2 clearly is victim to EA picking apart content and creating more unnecessary micro-transactions instead of creating a base game with content equal to its predecessor pre-EA.

    No way it wins against that competition, regardless of what you think about the merits or lack thereof. Starcraft 2 wins by miles, Mass Effect 2 second, and I'd guess Fallout NV before Civ 5 (since the former has apparently brought back fans bothered by fallout 3, and the main objections are technical rather than gameplay.)

    I can see that the atmosphere bothers folks, but wishing for things because they'd annoy other people perhaps isn't the most fruitful approach.

    I think Civ5 is the best this year's game that I played (not that I played many of them ;))
