If you could own only one, it should be this.
Overhyped yes, but it was still a good game. I think Gear 2 or MGS4 deserves GOTY. And before you complain about Gear 2 MP, think of the problems in MGO. People just forgot about them since the game was released earlier than Gears 2.
Yes, but remember MGS4 is more story driven than known for its MP.
MGO doesn't have all the glitches Gears multiplayer has. And just because you don't like the gameplay style doesn't mean it's bad. Yes, I like Gears multiplayer more, but MGO is a lot of fun.
MGO is very fun. I like it as much as I do Call of Duty 4 or Resistance 2. I have NO IDEA why people think it sucks so much - it really doesn't.
Saw this comin from a mile away. Its a solid game but I definitely think MGS4 deserves game of the year. Either way, what a sweet year for gamers. I'm still swamped with goodness.
MGO is just icing on the best cake you've ever tasted. Plus am I the only one who finds Gears Single player boring? I mean the game is ok but I just feel like I'm going through the motions. Some really dull motions. And if I have to hear that FKN voice one more time, "Cmon's lets goes gets thems guys." I might play the rest of it on mute. Could you be any more grisly, generic space marine. F*k ts grating. The funny thing is, I like thew truck driver in Futurama but I cant stand it here. Dom should have been the lead so Marcus didnt have to open his yap so much.
Gametrailers is the first gamesite that unite Xbox and PS3 Fanboys under one voice: "GTA does not deserve GOTY gametrailers you SUCK!"
All GOTY best PS3 and best 360 all were GTA 4. I must play this game then.
I hope that's sarcasm I'm detecting.
I just puked at GTA IV being game of the year. PUKE
the same nominees on spike tv wow
IMO Fallout 3 and MGs4 deserve it. Loved both games. Haven't gotten to LBP yet, but I will after Fable 2. GTA4 was fun for the first week of play. Gears of War 2 was an amazing game until I got to the MP. MP killed that game IMO.
Every time I watch a LBP video I want it more, hopefully I go boxing week shopping.
Silly UK and their boxing day...
Silly america and there Black Friday lol [jk]
Your both wrong. Silly Canada.
GTA4 is boring as hell. It is fun for a while but in the end it's a bored fest. I never understand why it is overrated by the media.
They state rather clearly, why they think it's a great game...They said they streamlined the experience, had a great story, lead character and improved the mechanics of the series in every way...You may not agree, but it isn't hard to understand.
You all do know that MTV Networks owns Gametrailers and has a entertainment division with Spike TV which is owned by MTV Networks as well. Expect no difference from these nominees and winners of the VGA. This article is pointless.
HAHA GTA4 as GOTY 08! surprise surprise. Should have been MGS4
But i play it online nearly every other day im addicted to the Gta races (with weapons) it loads of fun ive met loads of friends that way I wouldnt give it Goty just for that though Dead Space is my Goty
Never finished GTA4.... ZZzzz
I would had never guessed! I though they giving to Gears2!
MGS4 would have my vote.
Funny no exclusives got GOTY on each platform.
WTF GTA IV has won again! The game was a pile of crap and i nly played it for about a week and stopped, i still think gta vice city is the best one because of the amazing 80s vibe and the brilliant soundtrack and it didnt have that crappy sim like features like san adread did!!! Happy new year gamers
gametrailers is officially gay
...Just like Spike TV, and what did I write about that? http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend... and I already said on a quote on that page GTA IV would get GOTY because of the DLC. Now I'm not saying MGS4 should or shouldn't get GOTY, but several games are more deserving and better to play, including Gears 2. The crazier it sounds the more it make sense when GOTY's are announced and by whom. And AGAIN, I'm not saying no company is innocent, but if you follow the money, you can always tell what the corrupted media will say about whom.
i mean gta4 is good but not good enough to be goty. for the most part it was boring. i still haven't finished it yet and i bought it like 6 months ago. mgs4 should have taken the crown, but knowing how gametrailers are it was not a surprising result. anyway whatever these and other sites say, for me mgs4 and lbp are the best games of the year.
I don't know about you guys but to me GTA4 deserves all the awards that it's been getting. It doesn't have as much content as the last GTA but it still offers more than anything else out there. Personally MGS4 is my game of the year.
Why is it that 70% of gamers were disappointed by GTA IV, but the industry love it? Still a good game, but there are better. IMO Should have been: GoTY: MGS4 360: Gears 2 PS3: MGS4/LBP PC: Fallout 3
70%? Where did you get that number? Do you have proof? Because everyone I know personally, loved it. So I'd like some facts to support that number please.
Out of the people I have spoken to, about 70% claim to be disappointed, no source, what real people have said.
So then the whole of who you've spoken to is all gamers?
GTA4 was "biggest letdown of the year", but nothing else. should have been fallout3 or MGS4.
HMMMMMMM n4g you post this article but refuse to tell the world about all the zunes that froze today and fail to tell consumers about microsofts faulty hardware they sell but encourage it , sometimes you even force it on people and make them believe its their only choice . I hope you and the other large media outlets get put on trial and charged for spreading Proporganda and lies to consumers on a
wtf are u talking about
Its Nasim, nothing to see here...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl wasn't even a nominee. It is way better than Fallout IMO. But MGS4 deserved it.
I loved GTAIV but for me it should have been MGS4, but this is GameTrailers...
Its not the 1st time that GTAVI was awarded best 360 i dont agree with that but oh well but this is the 1st that GTAVI won on the best PS3 which it totally a joke!!!!! GTA is boring i don't understand why it s winning so many times they must be looking at sales only for this one.
So we waited all this time for basically a recap of Spike tv? -_-
"A consoles best game is one that utilizes its strengths" Yet give the award to GTA 4? Seriously?
...Given the technical excellence that Both MGS4 and LBP did for the PS3, I can't see how a game that can fit on a DVD and is under 720p can be called any of that without anyone who knows about gaming to spit-up their milkshake in laughter.
And it is still bugged by freezing on the Ps3. =/
Ow fack off with GTAIV overhyped shiat. Best 360 game: Gears of War 2 Best PS3 game: LittleBigPlanet
Ow fack off with GTAIV overhyped shiat. Best 360 game: Fable II Best PS3 game: LittleBigPlanet Fixed :) Happy New Year MART ;)
You got to be kidding me. GTAIV? Are they high? -___-
I think they gave it to GTAIV because they didn't like the story in mgs4. Well it's just their opinion after all. On to 2009!
Yet again, the right game wins...I'm so glad that there are people with enough good taste and sense making these decisions...GTA IV IS the Game of the Year.
that a disgrace... GTA was totally undeserving.
