Spike VGX: Super Mario 3D World Up For Game Of The Year

super_mario_3d_world_cats

This year’s Spike VGX award nominations are available to view online and it’s your chance to vote for which game you think deserves Game of the Year. There’s five games you can choose from including Bioshock Infinite, Grand Theft Auto V, Super Mario 3D World, The Last of Us and Tomb Raider. It’s completely up to you which game you vote for, but it’s certainly a difficult choice as there’s been some great games released this year. The Spike VGX takes place on December 7th, so be sure to vote.

Thanks, SimplyG

    1. A retarded comment from a retarded Nintendo hater. You haters are so predictable.

      Everyone with a brain knows that every Mario adventure is completely different from each other but bubbleheads like you don’t know that.

      GTA 5 is a “rehash”, Tomb Raider is a “rehash” and The Last Of Us is not even a video game, it’s an interactive movie.

      3. Yep. it has cutscenes and the rest is just interacting. INTERACTIVE MOVIE!!!

        Dark Souls, BioShock, The Elder Scrools, Zelda, Sly Cooper, Final Fantasy, Sonic, Metroid, Shadow of the Colossus, Street Fighter, Uncharted, Pokemon are also interactive movies.

      4. You want to know what an interactive movie is? Look at any game from Quantic Dream. Yes, I guess you could say that any video game with cutscenes is an interactive movie, but still, how the hell is Pokemon an interactive movie?

      6. I meant The Last Of Us, not fucking Beyond 2 Souls. TLOU is an interactive movie whether you wanna admit it or not. The reason why TLOU scored high among reviewers was because of the great story and not because of the gameplay so therefore it’s an interactive movie.

      7. you can use different tactics in combat and use cover in fights and to stay out of sight
        the game also features a crafting and an upgrade system

        just because it has a good story it’s not automatically an interactive movie
        it’s no more an interactive movie than tomb raider is

        talk all you like, doesn’t change the fact that it’s a game and a very good one at that

      11. But those stories aren’t ASS. Not every game needs a over the top story to be great…like metal gear 4 its story is so damn over the top near 80% of the game is cutscene, asura’s wrath has one of favorite stories but its mostly cut scenes as well.

        Like

      12. Prove that those things are necessary. And using sales stats or reviews as evidence is not allowed, because those are reactions and not part of the overall makeup of the game. I want you to prove that a game is truly more fun to play when you put a good story and good “preduction values”

        Before you even begin, here are three reasons why you won’t get very far:

        1. There are many games that do not rely on good stories and are still fun. You also have to define what a good story is, which is a matter of judgment.
        2. There are many games that do not rely on good “preduction values” and are still fun. You also have to define what good “preduction values” are, which, again, is a matter of opinion. Have I hammered your mistaken spelling into you yet? Maybe I haven’t said “preduction values” enough, I think one more time should do it.
        3. It’s a matter of opinion, though many have often confused “opinion” with “conjecture.”

        Go on. take your time.

      14. I don’t think Nintendo games lack good production values (look at the Galaxy games and Skyward Sword), and I think some of them have great stories (Wind Waker, for instance).

        There is no need to define what “story” is, nor “production value.” The terms are real and have definitions–just ask any writer or producer what they are rather than some jerk on the Internet (no offense Adarazz).

        If you’re willing to pay $60 for a Nintendo title that is focused–almost entirely–on game play, than you’re getting your money’s worth. Nintendo could learn a thing or two about varying game play according to events in a script rather than, for example, themes of a world.

        Creative people know–and it really isn’t a matter of opinion at all (people study theses fields as part of their higher education)–nothing is sacrificed when an element like plot is integrated effectively, but in fact much is gained.

        Skyward Sword was a step in the right direction for Nintendo’s storytellers.

        Like

      15. Yeah, no voice acting, clunky character movement, dated graphics. Skyward Sword sure had some high production values…

        Like

      16. HOWEVER, I didn’t notice the character movements were clunky, and actually I really liked most of the animations (exceptions occur where characters were intentionally unrealistic because you can’t make that look good, c’mon Nintendo), and the graphics were the best on the Wii, so in that respect the polish was there.

        Where they nailed it–i.e. where they made a “step in the right direction”–was in the orchestral music, the controls, and cinematics.

        Like

      17. clunky character movement? seriously? show me an instance ;)

        dated graphics are something you can’t avoid when you have to manage low hardware resources but outdate graphics don’t make an outdated game (or a bad one at that)

      20. Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain are essentially point and click adventure games…just adapted for the bigger screen. Nothing wrong with putting cinematics in them. In fact, the “interactive movie” aspect of those games are hardly the most criminal offense committed by Quantic Dream. Their cardinal sin is making stories without sufficient payoff for the player..

      21. I watched someone playing Beyond Two Souls; the whole time I was scratching my head trying to figure out if it was on-rails just looked that way because the combat was so seamless.

      2. Mario games don’t come out year after year, at least not within the same series. And usually the most that can be said about a new game in relation to the last was that they were both platformers taking place in the Mario universe (exception: Mario Galaxy 2).

        That having been said, I wish we could leave behind the conventions of levels and worlds and flagpoles and stars at the ends of levels. It would be great to play a Mario game that didn’t think of itself as a video game.

      2. GTA 5 WAS a disappointment. Why? Wanted level system is broken. You can get a one star wanted level for accidentally bumping into someone on the sidewalk. You can also get one if you kill someone with a silenced pistol miles away from the nearest would-be witness. Cops are generally too difficult to take on in a gunfight = fun lost. Tank is way too easy to destroy = fun lost. You can’t aim before shooting while driving. You can’t crouch without being stuck to an object, in cover. You can’t do police missions. You can’t do ambulance missions. You can’t do fire fighter missions. Vehicle damage physics are way off, aesthetically and functionally (can’t see damage, continuous high-speed head-on collisions make little difference to your car’s “health”). Helicopter controls have gotten worse. No gang wars/acquisition of territories.

        No nitrous in vehicles. No hydraulics on vehicles. No buyable safe houses. Melee is still awful, and lacking (though I may be spoiled on Sleeping Dogs). Parkour still sucks (though, again, I may be comparing it to SD). Soundtrack isn’t near as good as it should’ve been. You get practically no reward for finding all those damned collectibles. Story sucks, mostly because I had to play as three pathetic little losers who don’t know who they want to be in life. And gawd are they fugly. Why anyone would want to play a loser in their GTA game is beyond me. Far too few heists, and too little freedom given to the player in how they want to COMPLETE said heists. Can’t set default radio stations, outfits, or vehicles for any character. No gambling in or even SEEING a beautiful casino. No jetpack! W… T… F…

      2. Very true, two of my friends both think GTA 5 is an amazing game, and far better than the last…but neither consider it to be worthy of game of the year, simply because GTA is GTA. You run around and fuck around killing old ladies and such. GTA games are quite fun, but the best GTA will never be better than the best Final Fantasy, the best Zelda, the best devil may cry, simply because it’s a game you get to fuck around in. Nobody I know has ever 100% the GTAs because it’s just not worth it. And GTA doesn’t deserve game of the year. Why? It’s a great game, but it’s based off real cities, and real interactions. It takes a whole lot of development to make a game that good, but creativity, it takes none. Pretty much everything you do in GTA you can do in real life. You might not get away with anything you attempt in real life, (and shouldn’t attempt obviously) but mostly everything in the game is taken from everyday life. It’s gonna get GOTY I’m sure, but it doesn’t deserve it. Not even Jonah Hill being in it can justify that title. Just cause you spend a lot of money on voice actors and development, doesn’t mean you deserve to have GOTY. GTA just isn’t a creative series. It is fun, but anyone who calls GTA their favorite series has never played a good RPG or adventure game most likely.

I was honestly one of those people who were pissed about the delay and said I wouldn’t get it, but I decided to get it with Wonderful 101 when target had a buy 2 get 1 free sale, and I’m so glad I gave it another chance. It’s my first Rayman game honestly, and it is honestly far better than New Super Mario U in art style, music, level design, gamepad integration WAY better, pretty much everything is better. I still love New Super Mario U, but the art style is bland, as is the music. All generic as hell compared to the classic 2D Mario games. Anyway anyone who decided not to get Rayman due to the delay, give it a chance it’s great. Only thing that sucks is getting level 11 awesomeness if anyone knows what that’s about, takes way too much time, as do the last 3 characters you unlock AFTER getting everything else in the game and beating it. Those are the only 2 things I think were bad decisions. Oh and not having the Eye of the Tiger songs on the soundtrack I bought :(

      3. Hmmm….I’m just not sure that I completely buy that. It totally looks official, I’ll admit that I’m impressed if that ends up being the case…but I have my doubts

      4. It’s cool man everybody says that when they see my work for the first time. I don’t expect anyone to just take for granted the fact that a gifted spriter like me is out there. If I were in your shoes, I’d be amazed too.

      5. Sonic has(almost) NEVER been better than Mario, fixed that for you. Mario 1, better than Sonic 1. Sonic 2 I’ll give you over Mario 2 even though I like Mario 2 better, I can’t deny Sonic 2 is better. Sonic 3 is great, but let’s be clear: Super Mario Bros. 3 is far better and viewed by many as top 5 games of all time. Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 and everything after take a seat in the far back row to Super Mario 64, plain and simple. Can argue all day, and I’ll respect your opinion, but I could never agree. Super Mario 64 alone beats out ANY Sonic game EVER made, hands down. Just walking into Princess Toadstools castle and hearing that music brings me right back to middle school and makes me feel like a kid again. Ok I’m gonna cut myself off now lol getting all nostalgic and ranty lol.

      6. See, for me Sonic Adventure 2 Battle and Mario 64 are easily the most nostalgic games that I’ve ever played. (Smash Bros Melee would be a close third) Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is one of my favorite games of all time and Mario 64 is my favorite Mario game of all time. I actually do think that Mario consistantly beat Sonic back in the day. Mario 1>Sonic 1 and I actually think that he does the same with his next two sequels. In the 2D World, Mario is vastly superior to Sonic, HOWEVER, I have always greatly preferred Sonic in the 3D World. That being said, it’s always great to see another big video game fan who I can have a good discussion with and not make things personal. We can agree to disagree on Mario vs Sonic, but at least we can both agree that they’ve both had some excellent games! Have a good one, my friend

      7. Indeed sir and I loved Sonic Adventure 2 (had it on GameCube not Dreamcast but still loved it). One thing I will say, GOD DAMN did I love raising Chao in my garden lol I wish I still had it to raise some today but my apartment got robbed back on halloween in 2004 so all my GameCube games from them were stolen lol.

    1. Everyone loves a good underdog tale. But sometimes it can be just as entertaining watching that underdog thrashed and beaten within an inch of its life, slammed against the wall with blood spewing from every orifice, as it cries pitifully for a mercy killing. This will be one of those times.

  20. That’s fair, because everyone’s played the game and everything. Just goes to show what BS those awards are. At least there’s usually one or two cool announcements/trailers we get out of this shameless exploitation of video games.

  21. But it will probably lose to something retarded like Grand Theft Auto 5 or something similar. These Spike TV video game awards are always full of crap!

  22. The Mario game it will not going to win it, regardless of if it deserve it or not. Why? because I think there are more fans of the other game out there that Wii U sold out there.

  23. We all know that this game or any other Nintendo game for that matter will not win. The only games that win these days are thug and war simulators which look like someone took a shit and smeared it all over everything. Grimy, violent and sexual are the only things that win awards these days. A game that is fun and colourful is not considered art anymore!

    Oh well! Praise dysfunction!

    1. Yea it is pretty sad lol. I play video games to go into another world and explore it, I don’t really enjoy games that are overly realistic. If I wanted to shoot guns, I would buy one and go to the range. If I wanted to play sports, I would play sports, not a sports video game. I enjoy doing things I can’t do in real life in video games. Shooting people in GTA is fun for a little while (especially if you’re on acid) but it isn’t worth my money. Not saying that realistic games aren’t good, just not my taste. We old school fans have a different taste than this new breed of teens and such,

      1. Back in 80s/90s when I was a kid almost every gamer had variety and a good taste in games. Then the Xbox came out and attrated a bunch of “dudebro” gamers who only like mature shooters and sports sims. fucking microsoft.

      2. You’re clearly like 10 cause people from our time don’t waste time trolling as far as I know. That seems to be the case of the younger gens who play video games and have no friends or lives. Not all from this gen are like that, but most of the trolls I have come across are on the younger side. When I was a kid I would never think to waste my time trolling all day. Shit the only reason I am on here is cause the job I have is so easy I literally am at work now about to be finished. I’m getting paid to be here in a sense. Can’t beat that. But to be here for free and make up numerous accounts and pretend to be 3 people and such? I’d literally rather finger my own ass and cum from prostate stimulation than sit here and waste my time trying to act like 3 different people just to piss people off. At least prostate stimulation is supposed to give some sort of pleasure (actually a lot they say but no thanks) but sitting here on my free time certainly gives me none. That took balls to say but fuck it lol.

      3. Yup I hate them for it, and their take over of Rare and stuff like that. I’ve never liked microsoft because of Rare especially. Back in our day you had to play games and find out what you liked, half the time I would get a game as a present I never heard of and ended up loving it (Darius Twin for SNES comes to mind lol). No going on the internet and reading reviews and crossing off games from your list because someone else said it sucked.

      4. Reviews are a good guideline for games you’re on the fence about. But it infuriates me when people decide not to buy a game they were looking forward to because, “Oh, only a 73 on Metacritic!”

    The Last of Us was pretty great, but a huge waste of potential thanks to it being accessible (sony…stop it, Mark the Jock and Timmy the Sessler lover can fuck off, make better games, not easier to play ones).

    The others are decent, but naaah
