PSXE Poll Update: Downloadable Games Are Entitled To GotY
Downloadable games may not have the budget and may not aspire to vast, epic greatness.
Nevertheless, the majority of PSXE readers believe digital titles have every right to be considered among the year's best. In our recent poll, most said a fantastic experience like Journey deserved to be ranked among the elite; they'd have no problem with Thatgamecompany's subtle masterpiece winning this industry's most prestigious honor: Game of the Year. We don't have any problem with it, either. It just might happen, too, unless Assassin's Creed III or other titles impress the hell out of us.
This week, it's once again time to select the best User Review for our So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest. We didn't get as many submissions this time around (not a heck of a lot of games being released this time of year), so that's why there are fewer to choose from. But for the record, no matter how many we get in the future, I'm only going to select five (at most) rather than ten for the final community poll. There are two reasons for this:
Firstly, I think it's too much to ask the community to read ten reviews to make a decision. I mean, people have lives and we should probably acknowledge that. Secondly, we want everyone to get better at writing these reviews and the longer the contest goes, the higher the quality should be. Hence, the competition should get stiffer. Gotta impress!
Also, don't forget, follow the links to see all available prizes. I'm throwing in Spec Ops: The Line as well but...uh...I wouldn't recommend it.
