Giant Bomb Awards Dead Space Best Debut
I think the correct name for this award is best Original IP. Dead Space is a great choice.I would have gone with Valkyria Chronicles or Mirrors Edge but to each his own.
the metal gear pack with paintguns..is a blast
shocked the world of gaming when nobody expects it.
Are we talking about the same Dead Space here? It didn't really shock anyone; anyone who saw the game at events, saw its numerous commercials, or read previews expected it to be awesome. It's not like it came out of no where without any previous coverage or hype.
I might have to give it to LittleBigPlanet, but if there were any two games I'd have to choose between, it would be LBP and Dead Space. Both were very good, and Dead Space wasn't on my radar at all until after it came out.
I just finished Dead Space and my god the game is really good. Cant wait for the sequel.
I havnt played Lbp yet but i will
Ditto. Dead Space gave me hope that EA isn't just a money hog. That game has one of the best atmospheres I've ever seen in a game. I guess it also helps that I'm a Doom nut, and it's such a similar environment to Doom 3.
dead space is my game of the year ! i have LBP and its a great game, but not quite my type of game. i also have mgs4 and its an amazing game.. but there is just something about dead space thati enjoyed more. it was a big supprise. sure there were vids and all that, but this was still an EA game and i know quite a few people still didn't think it would turn out good. All the vids and reviews of GTA4 were great but look at what the gamers thought about it. what supprised about dead space was it realy was that great. not only that, but the production values were top of the line. then add the fact that there were hardley any bugs.. no patch. and the free download content was quite cool. anyway, my most enjoyed game this year. and graphically, it was one of the best looking games this year. lighting, textures..
Yeah I heard of DeadSpace 1 day before it came out. Then I bought it and didn't stop playing till I got Platinum.
