PSXE Poll Update: A No-Decision On FFXIII GotY Nomination
It's sort of difficult to analyze statistics when they're all over the place.
Technically, most voters said Final Fantasy XIII is a "great game, but not worthy" of a Game of the Year nomination but this group was separated by only 26 votes from those who said "maybe, it depends on the rest of 2010." Then the number of people saying it absolutely deserves a nomination is nearly identical to those who don't think the game is even that great, so I'm not sure what to do here. It appears to be a no-decision from my angle, but I suppose it's encouraging that the majority at least admit the game in question is great, and well worth playing. And when it comes to FFXIII, I think that's the proper viewpoint. You can't please everyone all the time, and if you simply examine Square-Enix's epic RPG for what it is, one has to admit that it's quite impressive. And of course, it's always tough to say a game deserves a GotY nomination when we're not even into the fourth month of the year... For our part, I honestly don't know how we'll feel at the end of the year.
This week, we want your take on the latest massive PlayStation 3 exclusive. The hype was massive building up to the launch of God of War III so the question is, has it lived up to the hype? Do you think it's one of the best games ever, or at least one of the best you've ever played? Is it an instant classic, as some sources have said? Or is it actually a little underwhelming? Let us know.
