FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

GOTY Edition Dead Island Infecting The Summer Months [Update]

[Update] Stop the presses. Hold the phone. Turns out, I have posted a "factual inaccuracy" here about Dead Island...and it actually DID earn a single, solitary Game of the Year award from GameCritics.com (not to be confused with the Game Critics Awards) as Deep Silver PR has pointed out to me. That totally makes this Game of the Year edition legit, right? Because one person/site saying it was Game of the Year certainly means it is, to everyone.

[Original] Okay, so I got a press release this morning. It was Deep Silver telling me that a Dead Island Game of the Year Edition is arriving this Summer. Normal stuff, right? Except Dead Island wasn't near the Game of the Year category...anywhere!

I've come to expect that most of the bigger releases around the holiday season tend to relaunch the following year with a Game of the Year edition. But they've got some big balls to say that Dead Island was the Game of the Year, in anybody's mind.

The game was...how you say? Mediocre. Broken. But I guess Game of the Year Edition sounds a lot better than Dead Island Game—that was okay but needed to be patched a ton of times to work right, but we promise it works now, we swear it does, oh and there's DLC added too, please buy this—Edition. I went ahead and made the box art for them:
