Glad to see some big press picked up The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds as their GOTY since it was definitely mine. Is it just my opinion, or does anyone else think portable gaming is more interesting than consoles at the moment?

Also curious to see how Bioshock Infinite has lowered in people’s estimations as the year has progressed. The first half of the year saw all these gaming monkeys showering the title with 9s and 10s and producing videos and articles about how wonderful it is and now you see it barely break the top 5 of many critics. I don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface discussing how layered and remarkable that game is.

Consoles offer bigger games - as much as 50 gb and portables can’t match that.

The VITA and 3DS both max out at 4gb.

I played “The Last of Us” that game has graphics and content I’ve never seen on a portable game.

However, the ipad (the ipad mini is considered a portable gaming devise) has shipped well over 150 million units and the amount of games on it is staggering - with some of them being quite good.

I myself like the idea of playing a game at Starbucks using a touch screen - so I’ve embraced portable gaming.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Wait, The Last of Us is an adventure game? I didn’t get that impression, but I’ve never played it (don’t own a Playstation, and not a fan of horror, which it seemed like). Are they stretching a point to award it Adventure Game of the Year, or is my impression mistaken?

I was referring the the D.I.C.E. awards listed in your post higher up, where it was listed as Adventure Game of the Year, not action/adventure.

Well this site (Adv Gamers) didnt bother nominating Stanley[arable, as it wasnt just adventure and they consider gone home and papers,please as adventure sometimes putting
survival horror in AG too.

So to each his own i guess. Industry dont have standards.
Heck some people even call Dishonored shooter (FPS).
