G4's G-Phoria 2008 Awards name Halo 3 as GOTY, I die a little inside

From Destructoid:

"Around the time of the Oscars every year, I often hear people say things like, "Who picks the winners, anyway?" When I explain that it's the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, an organization with 6,000+ "motion picture professionals," a few people say, "They should let the people pick 'em." Frankly, I think it's a good thing that life doesn't work that way, as the general populace often doesn't know what the hell it's doing (e.g., American Idol).

Here's some more evidence of that. Last night, X-Play aired an hour-long special on its "G-Phoria 2008" Awards, which are purposely set during the summer so "gamers can find respite from the heat and take advantage of time off to engage in their passion." To be eligible, a game had to have been released between July 31, 2007, and July 31, 2008. All 19 awards were selected by viewer votes (online at G4tv.com and via text message), so I guess it's not entirely fair for me to bitch since I didn't voice my opinion. Whatever, I'm going to do it anyway.

You'd think that, with the window shifted to include the first seven months of this year and the last five of last year, people would've gotten over the whole "ZOMG Halo 3 IS THE BEST GAME EVAR!" thing -- but apparently not. So they picked it as the best game released in the past twelve months. *Sigh* Personally, I could name at least five games that are better in my opinion..."

sucks now. actually it started sucking a long time ago. Heck how much you wanna bet there is a show on right now on G4 but has nothing to do with gaming?

Gphoria was pathetic.

I remember when it was a big spectacle with crappy performers (The Bravery) and presenters (Wilmer Valderrama). Now it's just a filler episode on X-Play behind Morgan Webb's monolithic forehead

If Halo 3 wins, then apparently quality doesn't matter anymore and games now-a-days only need updated graphics, new weapons, and hype to be called "worthy sequels" and win GOTY.

G4 sucks for that.

BULLSH!T. Everyone knows MGS4 deserves it, I even voted for it =/
MGS4 storyline/graphics/gameplay take a HUGE dump on everything Halo3 stands for. N00BZ!

uie4rhig3393d ago

then CoD4 should have been... i mean its MGS4 > CoD4 > ALL !! tbh, Halo 3 was the worse in its series, sure it has a few new stuff, but the majority of stuff is a step backwards >.>

Im A Stupid Xbot, I am embarrassed to be with my fellow xbots to think that HALO 3 is GOTY. We definetely now know G4 are xbots.

You should consider that MGS4 lost by 40 votes yet has a significantly smaller base of players.

Viktor E3394d ago

I agree with the Author,and all five of the games are Playstation 3 Exclusives

You have no room to talk, especially when you believe there's a microsoft handheld!!!!!!

-Direct quote from nasism...er...um...I mean Victor on G-Phoria's Best Handheld Game-

"As expected,nothing for the Xbox platform
No wonder Xbox 360 owners are depressed all the time,being on the losing team must suck very much"

Simply stunning, not to mention you seem to think you make a good name for Ps3 users(oh wait, I did mention that).

Admit it! You've only been playing games since 06'!!! How else would you think that MS had a handheld (and never advertised for it)?

Admit your wrong and maybe we will consider you to be older than 11.
