It only won it because it had Grand Theft Auto in the title. Game of the Year awards shouldn't go to games that sell the most or look the best, it should go to ones that are fun and actually work. Too many aspects of GTA V are broken and flawed, yet it still won? I guess that's how every award works nowadays, it goes to the one that's the most popular...
1) It won because it was the best game of the year, voted by the media.
2) If GOTY was based on what sold the most, then half the games that are nominated wouldn't be nominated.
3) If it was based on best looking, GTA 5 would've definitely lost.
4) Only in your fantasy world does GTA 5 not 'work' and that 95% of the game is broken.
Have a nice day. I'm sure it's always sunny for you.
Oh, and guess who won best action/adventure game? Not GTA 5.
Guess who won studio of the year? Not Rockstar North.
Guess who won best Playstaton game? Not GTA 5.
Guess who won best Xbox game? Not GTA 5.
Guess who won best voice actor? Not Ogg.
GTA 5 won 2 awards (Also won best soundtrack) compared to losing 3 directly and 2 relating to the game. They lost more than they won.
But yeah, it definitely won because it was more popular, right!?
Nope, you're just blindly hating, and it's borderline retarded.
Game. Set. Match.
