BurnoutParadise3072d ago


Since it's run by votes, Modern Warfare 2 will take the win

Battlefield3072d ago

Uncharted 2 all the way, modern warfare 2 was no way near my expectations.

pumal3072d ago

Killzone 2 all the way, the bots can cry me a river ahahaha there's like no good 360 games this year.

X_iGame_X3072d ago

Heh they included Killzone 2. Can't believe VGA forgot KZ2. It's will win 4 surez?

Valay3072d ago

Pretty much agree with you.

Chubear3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Hands down: Killzone motherloving 2. I've never experienced a FPS like that, ever.

Yeah, they "forgot" KZ2. >.>

Darkstorn3072d ago

Agreed, except for Best PC Game; I put Dragon Age.
It's going to be a big debate over who wins best graphics: Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2. Personally, I think Killzone 2 has the upper hand when it comes down to which game simply looks more realistic, but UC2 is undoubtedly close.

Erotic Sheep3072d ago

What exactly makes you feel that KZ2 is the best FPS you've played? Don't get me wrong, that game is gorgeous and is a solid action packed FPS title, but it doesn't come close to the likes of Half-Life or Bioshock.

I'm just wondering why some people feel KZ2 is the best FPS ever created ^^

raztad3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Why N4G doesnt run its own Game of The Year? This is a gamer site after all.


It depends on what kind of FPS you enjoy the most. I liked HL2 and its Episodes, it got some clever puzzles and awesome tools like the gravity gun but the combat is weak and boring, even when you are on a vehicle.

KZ2 gunfight is on another level. Just sublime. Incredible exciting and challenging when played on hard/Elite.

To me KZ2 is the Demons Souls of FPSes.

swiftshot933072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

I agree with 1.8. KZ2 was thrilling, gorgeous, and has awesome multiplayer. But best FPS ever? No, not even of this generation. Bioshock is blatantly superior, and IMO so is CoD4. MW2 also stands toe to toe with the game.

Darkstorn3072d ago

Bioshock was amazing, but Killzone was almost as good. Actually the only thing giving Bioshock the upper hand was its brilliant story and atmosphere. Hating on Ayn Rand never was so much fun... :p

raztad3072d ago


Thats true Bioshock is an amazing game. Bioshock is almost a genre in itself. So innovative when it came out, those perfectly integrated RPG elements and that atmosphere, oh my god the atmosphere.

I would like to see some sort of RPG elements/weapons upgradeability in KZ3. After Bioshock and Borderlands rpg elements is a must on FPSes.

FACTUAL evidence3072d ago

Soo hard to chose from uc2 and KZ2 WTH!!!! Someone call the doctor!

ThanatosDMC3072d ago

Best multiplat game is Assassin's Creed 2! Yes, it's that good. Go get it! I've been playing it for 2-3 days straight... you know, minus the bathroom breaks, food, sleep, etc.

pixelsword3072d ago

Uh, sir, you're trying to disagree with his opinion; his opinion can't be wrong or right because it's entirely up to him.


ReservoirDog3163072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

This list is missing inFamous. Besides Uncharted 2, it's my favorite game this year. Was really surprised how good it was.

Assassin's Creed 2. I'm sure it's good but I doubt it's as good as inFamous. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure.

Poor Sucker Punch. So underappreciated (as you can see from my avatar, I love Sucker Punch).

edit: Also I think Super Mario Bros. Wii be far better than CoD Reflex.

kraze073072d ago

Two words: Hell No. Dragon Age deserves the title as best PC game of the year.

sikbeta3072d ago

That's not a good idea

Multiple accounts fanboys voting ODST everywhere, even in the best wii game category lol

I hope Sony devs go to the VGAs with killzone 2 t-shirts & do thier kanye west impression when valve gets on stage.

Chubear3072d ago

HA! That would be gold! Xd but we know GG have a certain type of class to them. They'll take a subtle digg at them with stuff they're working on instead.

Reno173072d ago

Thanks for making me laugh. Good comment!

AKNAA3072d ago

Sony: yo Valve, I'm really happy for you and I'ma let you finish..
but GG had one of the best FPS of all time!!!... One of the best FPS games of all time!! **Gabe is shocked as [email protected]#Ked**

The_Devil_Hunter3072d ago

Honestly I dont know why L4D2 is there...

Madusha3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Yeah it's a bit repetitive but still a good game.

@Chubear: YourEMGN (Your Electronics, Movies and Gaming Network) nominees, not Spike TV.

Chubear3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Come on, you know why. It's Spike tv? ... MS's butt buddy?

bigrudowsky3072d ago

I dont know why its their either but valve always does a great job with their games so its a worthy candidate.

bigrudowsky3072d ago

Killzone2 best graphics hands down. uncharted2 was nice but didnt really impress me visually in comparison to killzone 2.
Game of the year however goes to Uncharted 2 one of the best games ive played this gen not the best but its up there

Myzer3072d ago

GOTY: Uncharted 2
PS3: Uncharted 2
