2008 The year of favoritism?

An article on GamesOnSmash reads "GameTrailers has done it again. Is it us or do you notice that all these big gaming sites are showing favoritism to systems and franchises that don't deserve it. The latest, was GameTrailers announcement of Game of the year."

Meh, people are givinig too much importance to this. Who cares really what GT did? This is what THEY think, not GT community.
I really don't care about GOTY awards, it ain't gonna change anything in my mind or make me go buy some crappy game that they hype.

GT love GTA4, omg big deal. Let's move on

Online communities this information is useless. But for the consumer who doesn't read reviews or know much about games the media tells them this is the must have game to have. Look at the Wii. That system has nothing much in terms of games but the media will say it the greatest system ever (Note: I said "Greatest" because I have heard some people say that crap.) On another note its a big slap in the face of the PS3 because it says that the 360 has games GTAVI which are better then MGS4.

OK GT Has proven to the gaming community how unreliable it its but at least it took them longer then gamespot and know, but that all set and done now we have the privilege of watching kokaku destroy its self, so who cares about GT, lets just watch kotaku fall and burn now

Another day, another crybaby PS3 fanboy writes an article and submits it to N4G. Yeah, don't listen to the professionals, read my amateur blog for the TRUE Playstation news(sarcasm). Sounds alot like a Jonestown scenario. It's just a matter of time til that "kool-aid" kicks in.

Oh.... Boo-Hoo!!! Sounds like another whinny fanboy with some small space out in cybernet didn't have his game or system win GOTY.

What, Who made all 3 of you Chief of the "Online Community" you guys so speak for? I'm sure if it was "Metal Gear Solid 4" it would bring a tear to your eyes..

That's right, too many Indians trying to play Chief, on N4G.

Ahah, no it doesn't you might wanna read the internet's fine print a bit more closely.

GT shows the performance differences between the 360 and PS3, that is why fanatics try to make them look bad all the time(just one of a few).

This goes back to what I was saying in repsonse to PS3 fans saying the media is bashing PS3. I said the media simply no longer fears the backlash from PS3 fans because they sense the 360 pulling away. This allows them to take hits(telling the truth, not ignoring PS3 blunders etc) because the 360 fanbase will be the primary one, not the smaller PS3 one(little to no reputation damage from a much smaller niche of fanatics)).

Graphics Whore3516d ago

Power of green, you ARE one of those intolerable niche fanatics lol.

Before GTA4, I only beat GTA3, I did not beat GTA San Andreas, or GTA Vice City, I got tired of the game and would trade it in for something else. But, when I got GTA 4, I really enjoyed it, I beat it once and now I am playing it again. I really enjoyed the more realistic approach to the series without all the extra stuff like rampage, firetruck mini games, etc. GTA 4, had the best virtual city than any game ever, every time I play it I see a different person I never seen before or find an area I did not see in previous play throughs. The story and characters was the best in the serious, the other GTA stories and characters was loosely base on tv shows, movies, and stereotypes. But this GTA, had an original story that I could really get into. I think GTA 4 was the best in the serious and I can not wait until for DLC ( bikers FTW, it would be the first time a game is focus being in a biker gang, should be interesting). So I can see why this game receive a lot of GOTY awards. Because the game industry see what I see when I played the game. Now I admit the online suck, but that was not the companies main focus. But they definitely delivered one of the best single player experience in gaming history. Now do not miss quote me I said one of, not the best.
