You've probably noticed this by now, but every year, nearly everything gets repackaged in a Game of The Year Edition. And when everything is apparently a Game of The Year, does that label even mean anything anymore?
Here's a funny take on the subject by videogamedunkey, which looks at some games that got a Game of The Year edition without actually being up to snuff for the label -- at least, when compared to other games released that same year. On that note, 2001 and 2007 were great years for video games. 2011 though? Not so much.
Obviously, we need a better term that encompasses what 'Game of The Year' has actually come to mean -- repackaged games that include all pieces of DLC, as well as some updates/tweaks. 'Ultimate' edition is kind of better/less misleading, no?
