Today on Sessler's Soapbox, Adam goes into detail about what went into the decision making process that ultimately lead to the choosing of Fable II as X-Play's Game of the Year.
Sessler "Now i can finally marry a man in a game!" :)
he was _____ <<< fill in the blank there
I thought you had retired being the funny guy ..? had a changed of mind already..? XD
Who cares if he may be gay? Gaymers are the sh*t!
lol - I think we have a winner
this reply was full of win!
"no one changes over night. that said, nothing in this world doesn't change" - Zaka (Valkyria Chronicles) lol, i'm trying... i really am... :(
well N4G needs alot more pplz with a sense of humor like urself and Breakfast...so plz to continue..ur trolling activities..lol...^_^
HAHAHAH... that was great. But let me correct you on something. Dont you mean a "wiener"?
What a lame reason to give a game GOTY. /bitter
The game that gave the best gaming experience, despite it's flaws, to the people giving out the awards is a lame reason? I'd love to hear your definition of a "good game".
It probably has something to do with graphics... While I don't really agree with their choice, I agree with their reasoning. Experience is always the most important to me.
I've seen both xbox and playstation fans both agree that fable 2 should of not won GOTY! Anything else but fable 2 should of got it
My definition of GOTY is simple ....the game that I remember enjoying most all year. I watched that video and sessler just seemed to be trying to plead for hate mail and flaming to stop more then anything hah. They seemed to have some kind of meeting that led them astray...whatever. MGS4 wins 4 category's but we had conversations recently of how this would happen or that would happen in fable 2 and it was different for each one of us....OMG GOTY.....Mhmmm....riiiight... /facepalm
"My definition of GOTY is simple ....the game that I remember enjoying most all year." Okay, so basically you agree completely with what I said. I think some of you are forgetting that they are not giving awards based on YOUR experience, but actually theirs. Even if X-play were the only people in the whole world that liked Fable 2, their opinion would still be equally justified. It's almost as if people demand these awards to be based purely on metacritic (and the likes) scores and sales, rather than the givers opinions. Also, nowhere did I say I agree (or disagree) with their choice, I only said I agree with the reasoning behind the choice, so I have to wonder where all the disagrees come from.
because it's all based on preference. I'm sure for someone out there, Haze of Too Human is the best game of the year simply because they enjoyed that game the most. It's not our place to tell them whether or not the game sucks. If they enjoy playing it, that's all that is important. My game of the year is probably Gears 2 or GTA IV. There's still a bunch of games(Resistance 2, LBP, Fallout 3, etc.) that I will probably play over the break, though. This year has so many great games!
Shouldn't a GOTY title be able to take the crown in it's own category before being crowned King of The Hill? Using common sense logic the GAME.of.The.Year. should also be RPG of the year right? Doesn't matter if he's straight or gay he's a wackjob for picking GOTY for this reason. Sure you can use the argument. It was THEIR game of the year as they couldn't put it down and played for hours on end... But that argument fails when RPG of the Year is taken by Fallout 3. They obviously weren't playing Fable 2 as an RPG game. One could only assume Adam Sessler was fap-fapping to his in-game spouse. Must have been some GREAT times with Fable 2. If that's the case. Then just come out with it...I'd probably apologize for my statement.
"I think some of you are forgetting that they are not giving awards based on YOUR experience, but actually theirs. " That being said, then there shouldn't be the label of "GOTY" if everyone has a different opinion. They should just have Best Genre categories and leave it at that. Because let's be honest, there's not just "ONE" ultimate game that rules all.
This is probably just a conspiracy theory of mine, since Fable 2 was a good game, but I feel like they gave it GOTY just so they could have Molyneux on to talk about his next projects (even though he ended up not revealing anything). Maybe I'm just angry that LBP wasn't even nominated though. I mean wtf is that?
. ' ' Adam goes into detail about what went into the decision making process that ultimately lead to the choosing of Fable II as X-Play's Game of the Year. ' ' It started when they all got their checks from shamesoft.
Your life is a shallow pool of self hate isnt it?
Adam must have seriously sold off his sentiments to say what he just said in this video. Bias is never impermeable, especially with the freak, pro-360 crowd we see at N4G regularly. They'll call a great game like Resistance 2 a "flop" just because some no-name source gave it a 4/10 and reduced its METACRITIC average down to a 8.9 from a 9.1. I bet those idiots don't know anything competent about arithmetic.
"... the decision making process that ultimately lead to the choosing of Fable II as X-Play's Game of the Year. " AKA which developer payed him the most money
That was the most confusing explanation ever. "It's not necessarily the best game but it has that magic that put it just ahead of all the other." WTF does that mean?
He's talking about fairy dust.
Thats what im saying ...WTF is this non tangible crap that makes a game GOTY...He basically saying we know its crazy but its our show and this is how we decide...ugh. The way he says...I did'nt care to quick travel...Like its a big deal thats nothing new lmao. You could of done the same thing in the first fable.
"magic that put it just ahead of all the other" Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so that's what they call it! Microsoft's money is actually called Magic! lol I kid I kid
LOL Comment of the day.
Yah well done, isnt GOTY worthy imo but its a great game.
how did that game get GOTY from x-play but didnt win best RPG in that category makes you say hmmmmm
This is not even close to being GOTY material.
I hope you guys don't take this crap serious. Most people that talk about reviews and scores don't even play every game they brag about. I bought 23 PS3 games so far, so I can't complain about the PS3. I have bought 12 xbox 360 games, to each his own and I never buy game based on a review, because the best games i have played have average less than 8 and guess what that didn't stop me from enjoying them
Whatever dude just shut up already. You go ahead and enjoy those 8's, 7's, sixes while I enjoy my AAA's and at least get what I paid for. If any of you serious thought PS3 had a game of the year it's clear your noting more then tards.
"You go ahead and enjoy those 8's, 7's, sixes" LOL http://ps3.ign.com/index/ch...
I really like to play fable 2 now to see the hype is all about... not. Screw fable 2 Metal gear solid IMO is the best project of 2008. Mgs4 is a gdamn masterpiece and to be honest Id rather play haze than fable 2.
everybody will get a piece of the pie. So quit yer whining you crybaby Sonytards.
Where the hell is MGS4, rapes every other game this year by miles.
Some of you have to understand that Fable II was chosen for it what it does for gaming and for its own genre.But remember that this does not mean that LBP,MGS4,Gears 2,and Left 4 Dead sucked and like Sessler said,they are each phenomenal games in their own might.It was the choice of Xplay to choose Fable 2,it was the choice of Game Reactor to select LBP,and it was the choice of GOONL!NE to select MGS4.That is how you know that gaming is doing well.Last year Play Mag gave GOTY to Ratchet and Clank Future,VGA gave it to Bioshock,and Game Pro gave it to Call of Duty 4.I expect many different games to be chosen GOTY this year and some might surprise you. However I rule out GTA4 but I guess I can't stop that from happening.
But have you ever seen both sides(ps&xbox) agree on the same thing ..that fable didnt deserve GOTY
fable its unique, now go on and chew on a long beefy meet and without bone, but long enough to give you a vibrant disaster.
It's a Ps3 exclusive,G4/X-Play is an American program. There really isn't much more to say really,this generation of gaming is just the most pathetic generation of gaming I've ever participated in and witnessed,and this is coming from a Ps360PsPC gamer
"this generation of gaming is just the most pathetic generation of gaming I've ever participated in and witnessed" i agree, only on the journalism/marketing side though. thanks to microsoft! i don't trust any source. even ign can be shady at times. but this generation is young. and it has already brought some great games along with it.. on all fronts ps3, 360, even wii..
I also agree. Many a PC FPS gamer has tested these new waters with cod4. But inevitably went back to CS, and Cod2. As evidenced by CAL league dropping cod4 from league play and bringing back Cod2...
"It's not necessarily the best game but it has that magic that put it just ahead of all the other." WTF that one sentence raped any credibility that sessler has ever had if he ever had any to begin with.
like someone else said the unison of disagreement from both sides is the first i have ever seen.
I guess they got the memo that said Gears 3 might not be exclusive. So they went with the only half decent game that Microsoft Game Studios made this year. This is almost so biased that it's making fans from both side of the aisle angry. Following the rationale that Adam gave, I would figure that Wii Fit would be a better candidate for GOTY.
it was the worst game on the list how it won is beyond me
where did this adam is gay thing come from? For the love of god he's married!
your point being.........no i agree with you though i dont know where all of the gay stuff came from, its funny, but i dont know where it came from.
who cares if hes gay... i cant stand short guys, with big heads, that think their opinion matters (little man/napoleon syndrome).. and he has that type of face you just want to punch multiple times.
that was HILARIOUS and soooo true!
maybe in some aspects of the game its great but wen your voting and reviewing for GOTY metrial,you take in ALL aspects of the game INCLUDING the bad co-op witch he said wasnt that good at all but yet ruled it out since supossidly the single player was to good.. thats one stupid reason,if the co-op sucked then ADD that into the review for GOTY,dont rule that poop out dude. he pretty much took out the flaws of the game and only reviewed the pros.. ?? wtfudge? not kool. im an average MGS fan so imo i would go with MGS4 witch wasnt even ON THE DUMB LIST. even reviewing something like resistance 2 for example.. so you would of have to rule out the single player campeign (witch was awsome imo) and only review the multiplayer?? god damn you sessel-EVERYTHING needs to be taken into consideration [email protected],THEN you can argue back'n'forth about witch game best suits the category in 1st place. he did not justify x-plays decision AT ALL or try to tone down the fanboy flams,yet added more gasoline to the fire. oh snap! if this decision for GOTY was bad fanboy-wise,i can only imagine on december 14th at the VGA's wuts gunna happen to this HUGE ass fanboy flame-ESPECIALLY if they give GOTY to GTA4.. then HOLY BAKAKSHITS,you'll have all three sides of 360,ps3 and even wii fanboys against the currupt video game industry.... and it wont be pretty tell ya that much. if it boiles down to that then that will be the DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. gamer for life :) play beyond fools.
His reasoning can EASILY be summed up like this. It was the most memorable game for the staff at X-Play. Though he did say there was one other game that split up the votes but Fable 2 edged it out. It's basically saying that "It may not be the best game that came out this year but for our staff it was the most memorable".
well isn't that the fuzzy feel good story of the f***ing year
I have no disagreements with the reasoning. Sure my personal GOTY is LBP but i don't mind the reasoning at all. It's just one group of people's opinion on games for the year. Not really a big problem to me. Gamers opinions have always been different since i was small and some people thought Sonic was better than Mario (hell i still do) MK vs SF etc.
I bet that other game was Little Big Planet... I still say MGS4 deserves it above all else.
I can't think of any reason why they would choose Fable II that isn't entirely political. It's the only game this year that I stopped playing a few hours in and haven't picked up again - it just wasn't fun enough to hold my attention with R2 all the other great games available this Fall. IDK - I just think you have to be nuts not to pick MGS4. There are some moments in that game that nothing this year can touch - you have to go back to like Shadow of the Colossus for something on that level of brilliance.
Well deserved. One of the best gaming experiences ever. No game has ever had a living breathing world like Fable 2. Do everything possible to play this game.
Lol, that's not even fanboy, it's just troll...
Fable II is pretty lame, and bad, only fanboys will say its an AAA exclusive, it's coming to PC anyway.
For not bowing down to Kaz Hirai's tiny japanese penis.
