I only looked at the website just now. When I saw the "Games for Change" category, I really hoped it would be for games under $5.

At least that way giving an award to the "Best Game for Change of 2014" would have made any damn sense.

Around the 4th or 5th time I died in the very first game because the platforming and level design isn't so great.

Those hot Knuckles rap songs are probably the high point of the entire franchise.

A ghost tried to approach me.

He got leery.

That is the best line. In anything.

Star Wars prequels. With Jeff and, I don't know, someone else.

Movies that are anywhere near good, especially those that aren't super serious, are basically impossible to riff on. The Rifftrax of movies like Spider-Man are not funny.

The quality of games in a year is not necessarily defined by how many obvious Game of the Year picks came out. The way I remember it, there were interesting games coming out each month, and many of them were very good.

Only AAA games had a down year. That may be an indicator of a Trend towards a New Paradigm, or it may just be rotten luck. Big games flop every year.

This might be more of an omission than a bug, but I can't see why it shouldn't work. So you know how the drop-down ToC on wiki pages has links to all the sections, with unique URLs for each? Like this:

http://www.giantbomb.com/mcdonalds-treasure-land-adventure/3030-14905/#toc-0-1

That works when navigating to the URL from a different page, but when I link the same URL within the actual page, it doesn't do anything when clicked. Example (in the second paragraph, "death threat" is linked to a different section) - I've checked with Chrome 39.0, Firefox 31.0, and IE 11.0

I couldn't find any mention of this problem, at least not recently. Bit hard to search for.

EDIT: Well now the "navigate to URL from a different page" method magically doesn't work for me anymore. But it was working, and it should be.

If, hypothetically, the staff really really sucked, they would pick Destiny because it "sparked conversations" the most.

Somehow I expect them not to pick an overall Game of the Year, instead focusing more heavily on categories. If they don't expect to reach a consensus on Mordor, I think that is what happens.

Ecksthuh-trestrials.

(Atlantis is fucking boring. That Indy game should have closed the book on Atlantis forever.)
