IGN's WiiU Game of the Year Nominees

IGN announced their Game of the Year nominees for various categories, including WiiU, yesterday. Since my work's web filter blocks IGN but not Polygon (yet - fingers crossed), I'm going to bring them up and complain about them here.

The nominees are:


To me, the glaring omission is ZombiU. I know Greg Miller gave it a relatively low review score, so I'm not sure if there's some IGN rule that would then preclude it from nomination. But I would easily nominate it over Scribblenauts and Blops2. Not just for the game itself, which is great, but for being the game that to me best illustrates smart use of the Wii U's unique capabilities.

I would also nominate Assassin's Creed 3 over Scribblenauts, Blops 2 and Nintendo Land.
