Gamertag Radio reports: I guess Peter Moore (President of EA Sports division of Electronic Arts) isn't too happy with the recent "Top Games Of The Year" list. His first blog post of 2009 starts of with WTF? (Where The hell is FIFA 09?).
Don't really care for soccer. Might rent it or something. It's gotta be better than GTA4.
It's not soccer - it's football :), and I agree it shouldn't get GOTY cause its a sport game but it was the best one this year.
i actually agree with peter on this one. eurogamer top 50 post is very bizarre.
...you buy it. If you don't like it, save your money and don't rent it. @ Arsenal4ever- it's not football, it's futbol.
FIFA is for kids, kid games don't hit the top or near. Fifa sales are something because EA marketing, true soccer players play PES since ever.
@jromao Thats what i used to think, however i picked up FIFA 09 in the sales (first fifa game i have played since 2002) and i've been really impressed by it, Fifa 09 is better by PES 09 by some distance.
Same here, always prefered PES.. but this year Fifa takes the crown. Fifa09 is simply a lot better than PES09, there is just no comparison. Its sad though... I used to like PES a lot, hopefully they will improve next year... competition like this is a good thing, games will get better. PS: It is Futebol. ;D
Too human is better then that sh!t
I would definitely expect FIFA 09 in the top 50 games this year. It was a brilliant soccer game and it still has me hooked.
he has a point. And it isn't futbol its football. I like madden too this year. Its the best american soccer game yet.
1. it deppends where you come from if u are from america, australia, new zealand or any other country where soccer isn't the first sport its soccer if u come from any other contry it's futball 2. Pes use to have the best gameplay easily but in 09 I think they really dropped the ball and fifa has taken the crown
I don't believe any sport game should be on a game of the year list - it's just a sports game ffs. Sports games are what you play if you want to play the sport, but can't; not if you're an avid gamer looking for fresh experiences. It's like asking why an almanac isn't in the top sellers for drama in book stores.
No, it isn't.
funny i play a lot of football and im quite good yet i still play fifa or pes. Seems as if your the kid who never was any good at any sport and just needs to put everyone else down who is.
Nah, gaming press agrees with my pov, :) I've played the hell out of many football games but there's nothing fresh there. It's like re-releasing DooM for 15 years.. every year just tweaks and different names.
MGS 4 is better...
I agree with Peter Moore on this.. how can fifa not get in the top 50? For me, it's my top game at the moment. Not only does it faithfully recreate the beautiful game, it also gives you more offline and online options than any other game i've played. The adidas live season thingie is also a huge implementation and definately has set a completely new standard of what should be expected in a sports game.
Fifa 09 is a brilliant game no matter what genre you want to label it. If a sports movie can win an Oscar then maybe it's time for sports games to get some recognition. Come on gaming sites, stop being so narrow minded.
it's probably the top game in it's genre. It's called "Game of the Year", FIFA is a game, and an excellent one. Wait...Liverpool pyjamas???
So what if it is a football game. Does that mean games such as Gran Turismo should be discounted.....because racing is a sport? Most genres are replicating something....why should simulating sport be any different than simulating warfare, fighting, driving, spying, flying etc.
Why nthe hell should it be there ? While for sure , fifa "won" the year for the soccer genre , it isnt a revolution compared to the many change already started with Fifa 08 , and it's still a hot debate between PES and fifa . There have been far too many great games this year on every console to give Fifa or Madden a spot , unless it's a sport section
I agree why isn't it in there, and im also going to say why Tiger Woods ain't in there either. Fifa 09 is outstanding and has converted me back to FIFA over PES. One of my top 10 games of the year for sure.
Generic football game? Who cares
The millions who brought it perhaps? And not to mention that fact that almost all of those millions of people would rate it as one of the best games this year
Those same idiots who watch the real over paid retards kick balls about a field. How can the exact same game as the one made last year, just with an "09" at the end, possibly be any better than its predecessor...
many forgotten great games deserved to be in that top 50. Dead space is not there and Condemned 2 is something like 20th... Come one.
Im in the 2000's of Ranked Players :D
I have FIFA 09 for PSP and it is a pretty good game.
I haven't been a fan of the FIFA series, and haven't enjoyed a FIFA game in many years. But after playing in the Online Clubs game mode on Xbox Live with some friends, I became a fan of FIFA 09. It's a good football game, and the best sports game this year if you ask me. Grid being the best racing game in my opinion. People like different games, but when a game like FIFA 09 doesn't make the top 50, something is very wrong. I agree with Moore. He knows what he's talking about.
i have to agree with the man, fifa 09 is a sick game, well for the ps3 it is anyway:P
the game is full of glitches, therefore does not deserve any awards, arrogant twat
Maybe it didn't get top 50 cause they didn't like it? Ever think of that Peter...? Maybe if you make beter games instead of rehashes people will actually like your stuff? I mean it is THEIR opinion, so they're entitled to it.
When the hell did Peter Moore become so cool?!
Stuck in myt drink XDXDXDXDXDXDXD prrrpffffrprdrdpfrpr Oh yeah! viva the games's 2009 linup!jiotuyhb
but its hard to look at the whole list when you can only see 2 games per page yawn ... all you can say is to bad waaaabulance has been notified
