This week the Gamer Access crew talks about who they think will win game of the year and which game deserves game of the year. They also talk about what they think of Gears of War 2 and if it is worth the hype.
What game SHOULD win game of the year and what game WILL win game of the year are typically two different things, unfortunately. SHOULD win: - LBP - Fallout 3 - MGS4 - Left 4 Dead - Dead Space (at least it should be nominated) WILL win: - GTA4 - Gears 2 (I guarantee Spike TV will pick this as their GotY) - MGS4 - Fallout 3
That is exactly what I talk about on the podcast be sure to check it out.
Yeah I listened to the show. It was good.
Thanx man. If you want to, you can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes. Just search for Gamer Access
yea thank you for listening to the show man and im glad you liked it : D.
I'm rooting for MGS4. That game freakin' rocks. O_o
MGS4 should win... its by far the best game this year! Not only is the single-player better than anything I've played in years, but MGO is an amazing online experience, seriously nothing compares.
Should win: Metal Gear Solid 4. No other competition even exists.
If you listen to the podcast I mention things like this and I think you will agree with me so please check it out when you got some time.
I did listen to the podcast and I can't agree with you. I understand your remarks but MGS4 has gravitated to an entirely different level. I look at Gears 2, I have played some, but it doesn't reach the level of technical achievement and storytelling found in MGS4. It makes you question the human condition. There just isn't anything on it's level. And it isn't just about the technical side as you mention. MGS4 elevates gaming to an actual art form. Game of the year shouldn't be about hype, sales, or even popularity.
i agree morganfell and thank you all for listening to the podcast, you basically agreed with me when you said "technically" mgs4 is game of the year : )
You misunderstand me because it isn't just technically or for technical reasons that MGS4 should win GOTY.
metal gear solid 4 is my favorite game of all time so i'm going to have to say mgs4 if mgs4 doesn't win i will forever make up my mind and never read reviews or impressions ever again and take them seriously
Yea I honestly believe that LittleBigPlanet and MGS4 truly deserve the Game of The Year but I think Gears of War 2 will take it. Now do not get me wrong, the game is amazing but does not have the innovation of these titles.
i honestly believe as someone who has beat gears of war 2 a day before it came out that it really honestly doesn't compare to the gameplay scope or story of metal gear but knowing the politics of the gaming world gears of war 2 will win but....i stress, does not deserve to. at all
I definately agree.
i dont see how gears2 will win it no matter how one sided the media is, the GOTY clearly goes to either the most innovative or the most technically advanced, if its all about hype and sales?... then GTA4 will win it hands down. but i feel that MGS4 will win it as i said in the podcast, game on brother.
MGS4 is my favorite game ever. I don't see why it is taboo these days to say that your favorite game is less than 10 years old.
Gears of War 2,LittleBigPlanet,GTA 4,Metal Gear Solid 4,Left 4 Dead,Dead Space!Who will win,who should win?
I think Gears of War 2 will win but I truly think MGS4 should win with LBP coming in at a close second.
Gears 2 could win... But I would have to snap their necks. LBP is cute, but imagine: "And the game of the year is: This cute 2-D platformer!" Don't get me wrong, BIG BOSS would play this game 5 hours straight and not kill anybody. Which pretty much means that he loves it. GTA1v was great, but it has some issues. I would say it is 9/10. NOT up to par with my son's game. Just NO to L4D and Dead Space. Yup, my son, SOLID SNAKE deserves this final finally salute. Has a MGS game ever won before?
Although Gears2 is a good game, it doesnt really bring much to the table, LBP and MGS4 should get GOTY. LBP because it's new, innovative and anybody can play it.
I am with you on that.
i think MirrorsEDGE deserves gameoftheyear over Gears2 because like you said games should be crowned for their innovation, and its incredible that their is still some innovation left in gaming these days. but gears is just a great game, nothing more, nothing new.
Metal Gear Solid 4 Followed closely by Little Big Planet
