Goty edition of Ryse confirmed!
It does cheapen the term GOTY when there's 50-11 games with GOTY editions. Especially when a game is poorly reviewed in the press.
U guys got nothing to do instead of bashing Xbox one ?
@Hardcore_shill Not the XBOne. Just Ryse. Go play Titanfall.
Lol It seems like Microsoft is making people believe that their games are Goty and that they have more games in total
it may be a maketing ploy, but not the first time this has been done to games that didn't win GOTY. This trolling of RYSE is detracting from the fact that this is a great deal for people who may be just getting the X1. Ryse has a lot of DLC for the co-op arena battles. If you are interested in this type of game, it is the only of its kind on this gen consoles. I completely enjoy the game and still play it more than any other game i own. There are people who hate the game because it is not on their system of choice and a few whoh might have played it and didn't get into the game play. That all fine (I couldn't get into assasin's Creed, but this is the firsting I mentioned it. I had the game for six months and never left Cuba. That game is failing to hold my attention and it got great review scores. I am not disputing the quality of AC. I am just making the point that Ryse just might be GOTY for some people over games the cretics prefer. I kwon I prefer it over AC by a mile.
I dont remember any X1 game getting/deserving GOTY edition yet.
problem is its not first party ?
I just think that they slap GOTY on anything to get it to sell more. I've seen some pretty horrible games with that label. I'm talking in general here.
It could be worse. It could be GOTY KNACK!
I thought GOTY stood for Game of the Year editions. Shouldn't only games that won those awards get it. Everything else should be bronze editions lol. Nah for real Goty editions really should be only for games that got that acclaim. Its just fooling the people that don't follow gaming like us gamers. Its the goty edition, you know I have to get that. The game has to be good if it the game of the year. For my next trick I'm gonna sell bronze and call it the diamand edition of the year as my sloggo.
I guess people don't remember Sony's cheaper Platinum/Essential editions of games, witch basicly is the same thing. They bash Microsoft, but Sony does something similar. Fanboys really are dumb as door knobs. * shakes head *
A GOTY edition for Ryse? http://24.media.tumblr.com/... The average rating for Ryse is a 6. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Don't worry Killzone will also have a GOTY edition even though that game sucks ass too.
Killzone Shadowfall shouldn't have a GOTY edition either, IMO.
Killzone 3 didn't have it so why would Shadow Fall have it
^ GG needs to end Killzone's downhill slide and and stop making them... I don't think it's in the same category of awful as Ryse, but it is still very generic.
Rik_Mayall getting upset, needs something to say, brings up "killsone" in a despret try to hit PlaySatation4 with something negative. LOL........."slave"
Killzone: Mercenary was great... it's a shame that shadow fall wasn't up to par. I enjoyed Ryse AND KZ:SF, and I also think NEITHER should get a GOTY... REGARDLESS OF WHICH I THINK IS BETTER. while, at the same time, I liked them both enough... they were good, not great, not amazing, etc
shadow fall is defo not even close to "goty" but its better than people say imo,i enjoyed it
Lol at you thinking you were clever
I think Sony uses the term Greatest Hits, which I guess doesn't apply to misses either...zing!
really? you probably say it sucks because it's slower paced, you know, realistic weight and there's no aim assist that you desperately need. Killzone is very fun
Sorry but KZ is a great game that only men with there balls dropped likes. Graphics are better than anything on X1, theres even more people playing KZ SF that there is on Titanfall lol. Nevermind, I just read some of your previous comments, you haven't even played KZ and are just a butt hurt Xbot. FYI Halo sucks because I never played any of them cause it was never on the consols ive owned since I started gaming. Mainly because the PS has brought me so many great games over the yers I don't need any other gaming machine cause PS has always met my demand and gave me some killer experiences I'll never forget.
@geddesmond No offence but KZ:SF is not in the same league as halo or titanfall. You obviously havent played many FPS if you think KZ is anything other than average. "Graphics are better than anything on X1" Does it even matter, when KZ is such a bland game?
Sucks so bad it's the best selling next gen game to date on either system right? Look it up chump before you run your mouth with idiocy as your tool.
You're right. I own a PS4 and killzone does suck. So does Ryse. Neither deserve to labeled GOTY just be honest and admit it.
@nextlevel lmfao thats what my face must have looked liked when i read it.
@ Next I believe Killzone got a rating of a 73. http://www.metacritic.com/g... 13 more points higher isn't anything to brag about especially considering its a proven BlockBuster Ip. You'd expect at least 85 score from it. Ryse is a new Ip so low score isn't nearly as damaging.
Idk if being a new ip or not really matters in this case tho :/ Both games were not as good as they could have been
I would actually argue that it's more damaging to a new franchise, because a known franchise can get away with more, having established fans already. Even though Killzone SF wasn't a complete disaster like some other games, I still feel it has run it's course.
Wait how does user rating work on that? I saw a positive of 219 Mix was 22 And negative was 19 How does that turns into a 5.9 user review?
Don't pay attention to user reviews on Meta. Just the website ones. The user reviews are either 10 or 0.
Yeah, user reviews for launch exclusives were fanboys only... 10s if the fanboys liked the system and 0s if not.
That Ryan Reynolds GIF pretty much describes what I was thinking and feeling after I read that article. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-E... http://www.asianjunkie.com/...
There are no less than 15 GAME OF THE YEAR editions every fall. Can't there only be one game of the year? I guess if one publication anywhere on Earth calls your game GOTY you can release a GOTY edition. Maybe somewhere, someone declared Ryse GOTY ;)
Its why its a completely meaningless title.. Who decides goty? Highest sales are the only way to go about that.. As it stands, every magazine and website decide their own
A more fitting name would just be FINAL EDITION with all DLC and everything included. All the patches, all of it, on disc. I guess marketing wise that doesn't sound as good as OH BOY GAME OF THE YEAR! but at least it would be honest as to what it is.
As long as a game has recieved at least 1 GOTY nomination from one site they'll use it to release a GOTY Edition. They should honestly just call them Complete Editions or Final Cuts.
@n4rc That disagree came from me. If sales was the only measure then wii fit would've been a game of the year over a game like uncharted, and that's just all kinds of wrong.
I didn't say you'd get a good result.. Lol.. But its the only unbiased metric you can use.. Everything else is opinion..
Game of the Year is not a universal title. Anyone can say that something is their "Game of The Year". IGN, GameTrailers, GameSpot, Spike, a ton of places have Game of the Year games. It is really a meaningless title.
Ryse game of the year for an Xbox One game that has the company about to collapse? Only on Xbox One.
wow when you put it like that...
Kind of sums out how shitty the xbone is if Ryse is considered a GOTY.
What happened to the cheap platinum hits versions of Xbox games?
Ryse not good. Ryse suck many ass
Ryse is not that bad of a game. I actually enjoyed it, the combat was said to be repetitive I didn't feel that way, the graphics are stunning, the story was great. Only problem is that it was short imo
It's ridiculous for some games having "goty editions", even Dead Island did that, lol. The good thing about it that's cheap, but they should use a name like platinum hits, or classics.
In what planet was ryse and forza 5 GOTY games?
I think Forza won some game of the year award for driving games (not game of the year as a whole). Ryse being GOTY is new to me. Release the title but don't call it GOTY edition.
I wouldn't be opposed to Sony copying this and re-releasing "platinum" versions of Knack, Killzone: Shadowfall and Infamous: Second Son (with the new stand-alone DLC) for 20-29.99 come the holiday season.
Sony releases Greatest hits if the game sell a million or more
Greatest hits implies the must have games on a particular console. Game of the year is an award given to certain games by third organizations that are independant bodies. I wonder if Microsoft might run into legal problems with the organizations that hand out GOTY awards. I would assume they have some sort of exclusive right to the phrase, otherwise whats the point of handing out GOTY awards if anyone can just crown themselves with the honor?
I guess Sony fanboys have nothing better to do then post in x1 threads Sony comments. Np. Maybe they should re-release a compilation of indie games... call it "BRIG"... (best recycled indie games)....
Your comment insinuates that only "sony ponies" are supposed to and only allowed to read sony articles and "xbots" only read and comment on xbox one articles. Who are you to judge people for commenting on any article they want. What the hell man, jimmy didnt even make an insulting fanboy comment. He made a decent comment. You are such a troll, a salty one at that. Not appreciated, especially your last troll sentence.
@guyman... I have no problem with Sony fans reading and commenting on xb articles as long as they are relevant to the article as an xb article. If this would've of been a Sony article doing this for knack and kz retail games and the I commented MS do this for Ryse, dr3, and Forza I am sure someone would've told me I was trolling and off topic too. Its pretty pathetic that you are defending this kind of behaviour in the comments. It promotes fanboyism.
If "X" happened then "Y" happened then. . . But it didn't. The only people bringing up Sony games are the people defending the idea that Ryse could be mistaken for a Game of the Year level game. Ryse was released 22 NOV 2013. It won zero Game of the Year awards. Everyone should laugh at Microsoft for their decision to lie so blatantly.
They have. They've been calling it "Greatest Hits" since the PS1 to PS3. They've yet to do one for any PS4 game though. They'll probably introduce to the PS4 next year or the year after.
There should be an Infamous second son bestest game ever ultra Sonytologist edition.
LOL and the bots were saying sh** when TLOU was announced for the PS4 which is actually a GOTY(200+ GOTY awards) oh and did I mention 60fps LOLOLOLOLOLOL
Smart strategy on Ms' part.
Don't they call releases with DLC included GotY editions? Any excuse to bash Microsoft.
Exactly. Gotta love everyone getting their panties in a bunch over semantics.
Not exactly. Wrong. Game of the Year means that it won a Game of the Year award from someone, somewhere. There is no way to confuse Game of the Year with "There is DLC in here".
@Biggest I get that these games didn't win game of the year just like most people who read the article and have their wits about them. Last Gen the same thing was done. Label it "game of the year edition", which meant, discounted price and all the dlc. Do you guys split these many hairs when you get your big mac and it doesn't look exactly like the image on the menu. If this labeling deceives people into believing these games are in fact game of the year, then they may want to take a good look in the mirror and direct their anger at the responsible party. Ignorance is not a valid defense.
Lol Ryse and Forza 5 GOTY? Not even close. Now they're going to sucker in people with this logo thinking they're good games.
Anyone remember when GOTY meant something? Microsoft just wants to wreck everything in this industry one way or another.
