Is it me or does it seem like the Machinima staff didn’t have very many games to play? I will agree Red Dead was a great game, however, that many awards? Well, if you say so Machinima. Also, I personally would have given best indie games to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, that game shook me to the core. Another dispute of mine, Minecraft most original game? Wasn’t it based off of Dwarf Fortress and Infiniminer? What do you guys think about Machinima’s picks? What would you change? Let us know in the comments below!
