[ Game -> Article ] - More info on Game: Fallout 3

Fallout 3 has been nominated for 7 of Spike TV's Video Game Awards. The nominations are for:

Studio of the Year: Bethesda Softworks for Fallout 3

Game of the Year: Fallout 3

Big Name in the Game: Male: Liam Neeson as "Father"

Best Original Score: Fallout 3

Best Xbox 360 Game: Fallout 3

Best Graphics: Fallout 3

Best RPG: Fallout 3

You can click on any of those links to vote. I think the "Best Graphics" nomination is a bit of a stretch. Also, why isn't there a nomination for best PS3 game? ;-)

Liam fucking Neeson? Malcolm McDowell is a much bigger star than him and despite the game's problems, I thought he did a great job as the president.

Studio- I could see it, in comparison
Game- Didn't new Gta come out this year?
Big Name-He hardly lived up to it.
Original Score- most overbearing score mayhap
XBox 360-Again GTA?
Graphics- No, no,no
RPG- Why not

After some thinking, I actually agree with the basic message here. The President was the only character who seemed to be interesting to me and seemed to be the only character with an actual charisma.

Fable II. Not saying it's better, but I don't underestimate the amount of blind fanbase that Microsoft draws. Just for reference, Halo 3 won last year's "Game of the Year"....and yet lost "Best First Person Shooter." Go figure.

It's all a popularity contest. "Game of the Year" is just the public name for "Most media hyped game of the year, regardless of the end results"

Liam Neeson? He had like five minutes of dialogue stretched out across the entire game, 50% of it was the annoying demo thing where you make your character.
