What exactly do I think Game of The Year means? Who are you, Bill Clinton? For one, with Fallout 3 being branded as one, I think it doesn't really mean anything. What it means in regard to the titles mentioned above? To sum up my views, where GTAIV and Mass Effect offer throughly enjoyable, cinematic experiences that are fresh, original, inventive, intelligent and engaging, King's Bounty offers stale nostalgic experience of a ten-year-old game that is hardly original, creative, or even seriously attractive. For me, the latter game is inferior to the former two in almost every single aspect. I'm afraid we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
