G-Phoria Game Of The Year

Here's the winner for game of the year from X-Play's G-Phoria awards, the only video game awards show where the winners are determined by the fans.

The story is too old to be commented.

Fallout 3 was really good, but I would have gone with either Fable 2 or inFamous out of those nominees.

I bought Fallout 3 a few days ago and i am not so imressed so far.I have not gone far and only just left Megaton to look for the radio station,so maybe things will change.But for the moment i prefer Fable 2 because it drew me in immediately.

Damn, you don't like Fallout? That's rough.

I actually wasn't a big fan of Fable 2. I beat the entire game and didn't find it to be anything extraordinary. For something that was boasted for having many things to do, there really wasn't much. That being said, I enjoyed the game and had fun...but it definitley was nothing close to great.

If these are the nominees, then I'd have to go with Fallout 3 as well. Sure, the game had some setbacks to it, but I rather enjoyed the game, thought it was pretty great. To be fair though, I don't own a 360, so I never played Fable II. Gears2--shooters don't do it for me enough to ever be game of the year by my book. KZ2--the same, another shooter, looked great, was fun and all, but at the end of the day it's another shooter. SF IV? I don't know about that. It's a fun game and all, but not even Game of the Year material to me. And Infamous? No chance of being Game of the Year material either. I enjoyed the game, it was alot of fun, but it's much more a 80-range game than some 99/100 Game of the Year (contrary to what some might have you believe).

I thought Fable 2 had more variety than Fallout 3. Fallout 3 was really fun for a while, but I got bored of it MUCH quicker than I got bored of Oblivion and Fable 2. The color scheme on the game just didn't do anything for me. I was really sick of the green-tinted brown, really fast. I couldn't fully quantify what it was about the game that had me stopping after 30 hours, but I put more time into both inFamous and Fable 2. And about inFamous being an 80 game and not Game of the Year caliber... well, it all comes down to opinion. I see inFamous as a really well-focused open world action platformer, with some seriously explosive action sequences with sparks and debris flying everywhere. It's just a really fun game for me to explore and blow things up and have a good time, and I liked the story and presentation a lot as well. So, for me, it's one of the best games of this generation

I didn't like Fallout either. It was way too slow paced for me. That being said I wasn't a huge fan of Oblivion either.

Fallout 3 sucked me in immediately, from the great opening until, well, today. I'm still playing it as I haven't cleared it all and I have two more DLCs to go through!

I am very happy that they won, yet another award. They deserved it. Despite its numerous flaws, Fallout 3 feels so fleshed out, complete, and deep.

Megaton2993d ago

Hey, whatya know, there are still some X-Play viewers out there with a little taste.

shutupandplay2993d ago

Yep, fallout 3 for me too. Fable 2 in a strong second. I am STILL playing fallout 3 to this day, the game is absolutely amazing if you put some time into it. The DLC is great too.

BannedForNineYears2993d ago

Fallout 3? I mean.....Wow........In my opinion, inFamous>Killzone 2>Fallout 3...I guess I just have bad taste, but I knew a multi platform game would win.
Fallout 3 isn't a quality game, its gameplay is its strong point I guess...

JL2993d ago

I'm not sure how Fallout 3 wasn't a quality game if you're saying it's gameplay carried it. I mean, to me, gameplay is the major factor in making a game good.

For me, of those three you named, I think I might actually have to go in reverse order as you. Fallout 3 was better than Killzone 2 which was better than Infamous.

Eiffel2993d ago

Fallout 3 has more lasting appeal than Infamous and Killzone 2 can shake a dismembered leg shot in V.A.T.S at. If you're a real gamer gameplay should always go before anything else. What do you think makes the game great...graphics? Lol....
