Remember the Game developer choice awards?

...for new studio (Crytek won) and best writing. While Chris Avellone didn't win, i find that the winner was a bit odd: Half-Life 2. I must've have missed something, what was so good about the writing in Half-Life 2?

The ending to KOTOR 2 is more than rushed... it's slightly non-existent. I've literally just finished it with darkside mastery and all I got was someone falling down a hole, and then a dodgy piece of red somethingorother in the middle of space - Half Life 2's ending was annoying in that it didn't explain anything where as KOTOR2's ending just didn't happen!

These awards are like the Oscars -> 0 relevance but it's fun to see how developers reward themselves; at least Gamespot has decent ratings with a +/- 0.5 error margin most of the times but at GDC awards Thief 4 wasn't even nominated for audio and it has imo the best sound of 2004.

Not the end of the world.

 

well crap. Does that mean I have to return these tin foiled hats and rat-poisoned kool aid fun packs now?

 

 

Either that or sell them on E-Bay, btw I like the Gandalf reference

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Good for Crytek, they really deserved it.  And like it or not, because of the way KotOR II's story fizzled out (don't bother me with reasons, I know), HL2's [almost nonexistent] story was better.

That's like saying you prefer abstinence to foreplay without sex.

 

 

...who doesn't?
