    I never understood why they call these re-releases “game of the year” editions.

    Was this honestly ANYONE’S game of the year?

    • Stole the words right out of my mouth — who gave this game a GOTY award? It was mediocre at best IMHO…

    •  they should call it a “complete edition” or “gold edition” maybe.  Then again I suppose anything is better than calling it the “71% Metacritic Rating Edition.”

    • It was mine- Before I actually played it

    • James Lewis

      yea mine

        Why would you even respond to a 2 month old comment. Why.

  • In which paralel universe was Dead Island even a -good- game, let alone game of the year?

    • MrRobbyM

      Dead Island is the product of good marketing. Despite it’s long list of flaws, it sold decently due to advertisements, especially the fist trailer. Probably sold enough to warrant a GOTY edition. But that still puzzles me, even though it sold well, does it mean that many people liked it?

      • I enjoyed it. Most of it. There were a couple points in the game where all I did was run and punch zombies on their face just to progress through the story.
        It’s not a polished game, but it’s not bad. There were/are some good ideas here that could have made it more eventful.

        i didn’t like it i LOVED it

      It’s not a bad game, it’s pretty fun, especially in multiplayer.

      It can definitely set a tense mood when it wants to, but it quickly vanishes away after a while.
      That and, I keep saying it but I’m serious. I listened to the trollolol 10 hour version song on youtube each time I played the game so to cut away some of the tension from the music and dim down some of the zombie screaming without completely overpowering it.

    this better include that movie they advertised in the trailer.

  • False advertising, anyone?

  •  It had DLC?

    Did not know that.

    Should be called “Not as buggy as the first time edition”.

  • TheDarkEmpress

    When was this ever GOTY? Only thing I wanna know.

  • NetscapePizza

    Since when was Dead Island a Game of the Year.

    Thought it was considered to be pretty messy and poor.

  • James Lewis

    I loved this game can’t wait to beat it a 2nd time with a different character this time
