E4G: Here at E4G we have put together all of our votes and brought it down to four games that are fit for the Game Of The Year award.
UNCHARTED 2 FTW!! No matter what happens, it's still my game of the year.
It is a great game, definitely worth the price tag.
Yeah I'm buyin Uncharted 2 on Amazon 2morrow, it just dropped ta 40 bucks! I told everyone ta wait, guess they couldn't help themselves =) My GOTY is the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 beta since I've had more fun with that than any other game this year, including Killzone 2. It'll proly change to Uncharted 2 when I play it.
sorry to say this but that video wasn't very good. Why did you use "the fort" footage with absolutely no gameplay??
So many good games. I'm not quite sure anymore which one is my fav. I was blown away by KZ2, then came inFAMOUS, VC, Demons Souls is unbelievable, now UC2 (this game got everything and more to be GOTY, I hope it's not robbed), R&C:ACiT is a lot of fun as well. I've been playing a lot of MAG beta. Game is something else. All I'm gonna say is MAG wasnt in my must buy list before the beta. Now, I got $60 reserved for it. Day one. @dead Taking advantage of Best Buy 2 +1, my copy of UC2 cost me $43 including taxes, quite a good deal.
NO MATTER WHAT
All FPS games except Uncharted? That's kind of sad. So many great titles in other genres this year. And Halo ODST doesn't deserve to be there. Come on, so many other games were more deserving than that. How could so many people vote for that in the face of tons of brilliant games this year?
Forza 3 is GOTY. Too bad driving simulators aren't appreciated as much as shooters, that's why MW2 will be GOTY.
UC2 or bust
I agree with you on that one. MW2 game of the year.....=[ MW2 fanboys are worser than 360 and PS3 fanboys, seriously.
they didnt include assassins creed 2? what the...
ODST WTF. Its an effin expansion! Assassins Creed 2 or Infamous are both way better, suppose they had to have at least one 360 exclusive on there or they would be tears
I don't get the big deal about game of the year really.. I mean it's nice from a developer point of view but why do some consumers get so excited about it? I mean its a subjective thing just like reviews, everybody has thier own favourites!
Showed gameplay footage for odst and MW2 but not kz2 or uc2? i guess their visuals would make the others look bad.
even if they release uncharted 3 tomorrow?
I dunno if I agree entirely with the article... Uncharted 2 should defo be on that list.... Modern Warfare 2 defo on that list... But the other two? Killzone 2 was good, almost great, same with ODST, but neither are on a par with MW2/UC2....
@ z-hayden I agree, The video was terrible! Not really read a lot from this site yet, but I am put off by the name E4G (wonder where they got that idea from?) and quality of video, it all stinks of lack of professionalism, hopefully there reviews & opinions make up for this.
ODST, should be replaced with either, Batman, inFamous, or Assassin's Creed 2. Uncharted 2 Game of the Year!
or GTFO. ;)
killzone 2 hands on.
Killzone 2 is an amazing game, it's more of a mix of stay back and shoot with your team mates like in a real battle and a little run n gun, not stick your face into enemy lines like in COD cause if you do that in Killzone 2 you're F***ed
Out of that list I would say Uncharted 2, followed closely by Killzone 2. Though I would personally put Assassins Creed II down for the title.
It was a great game but we could only pick 4 this year.
Halo ODLC? Are you kidding. It's game of the year not overpriced DLC of the year. Assassin's Creed 2 & Infamous are way more deserving and superior games. This website should be ashamed of themselves.
So you picked ODST instead?
Guess since they had a PS3 exclusive they HAD to have a 360 exclusive.
Imho, having ODST on that list is a joke. These people are suppose to be gaming enthusiasts and industry specialists? How can anyone possibly think ODST is better then DSs or AC2 or even Forza3. The only explanation is these people are delusional fanboys. Call me arrogant I honestly think it's true. I know it's not you personally that made this list, but for the people in your office that voted for ODST (and MW2 quite frankly) they have no idea what quality is and after this should definitely not be qualified for making future votes.
2009 was miserable for Xbox exclusives. They got practically NOTHING. ODST, Forza, Halo Wars, and GTA4 expansion packs... That's it. ...Out of the 4 exclusives that came out... 2 of them were expansion packs. That kinda says a lot.
I Don't understand why ODST Is there either, There is nothing at all that is unique that I've seen. DS is Unique, HARD but Unique, Great Graphics, Interesting online play yet It's not there either. But ODST? ok maybe It's FUN, but does that alone give it the right to be on the list for GOTY? many games are FUN. DS to name one. but Honestly though I think ODST is there because of the name and not the game. UC2 Should win, but I think MW2 might win because It's multiplat. We'll see though, Goodluck to all the games on the list.
LOL and you put MW2 for PS3 (Multiplatform game) of course no Demon's Souls BS!
uncharted 2 deserves it, but mine would be demons soul
PS3 - Uncharted 2 360 - Halo 3 ODST Wii - New Super Mario Bros Multi - CoD: Modern Warfare 2 PC - Dragon Age: Origins
GOTY goes to Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, or Modern Warfare 2 for me
How can DLC be game of the year.. That is like saying fallout 3 the pitt could be game of the year. Use the same engine and slap together some new features. It is the same with MW2. Lazy devs making millions off of people willing to buy the same rehashed game.
Who's talking about DLC?
between mw2 and uncharted 2 odst was very good on legendray in coop and one underrated\underapreciated game,Red Faction gurella,it was big fun forza 3 is good,Im not big racing sim fan,still have to purchase new super mario bros on wii,borderland and left4dead 2 this year was very very good,I just get chills down my spine just looking at 2010 2010=OMMMMMMMGGGGGGG
Uncharted 2 gets my vote. Simply put its an epic stunning game
Uncharted 2 is my vote BTW. KZ2 was great, MW2 is fun (but the campers killed it for me) but Uncharted 2 is the beast. Its such a beast that it should get GOTY twice.
What the Fu(k is ODST doing on the list for GOTY.
honestly the single player was very bland and boring for me, but only during walking around the dark city
because it was a good game? Eitherway I still want Uncharted 2 to win these GOTY awards, I do not want Modern Warfare 2 winning any because it did nothing new or groundbreaking.
Good game =/= GOTY
ODST was really short. Without the boring walks through the city, the game is only about 4 hours long, if that.
I'm asking myself the same question
What kind of message does this give to developers when your incentive is to pass off dlc masquerading as a full title, with a short campaign and sub hd visuals and you are rewarded with game of the year nominations? (ODST) This is like putting Rosie O'Donnell forward to represent Miss World. UC2 gets my vote.
WTF is MW2 doing there? I'd rather be Ac2 or Batman at that spot. Definitely U2.
I have all of these games besides ODST (waste of money). Uncharted was great but doesn't have the replayability of MW2 imo. I don't know why people trash MW2 so much, I know Activision screwed the PC users, but you can't argue that MW2 doesn't have the best multiplayer ever.
I can very easily argue that MW2 doesn't have the best multiplayer ever. I think Halo and Killzone 2 both beat it easily. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying MW2 immensely, but its not GOTY material.
DS's did allot of new things and brought back an old style that worked and yet It's not there, Great Graphics, Great Enviroment that really makes you feel like your there, Unique and Interesting online play, GREAT Challenge, Rewards versus Risk setup is awesome. UC2 Has done much more then MW2 or ODST, people say: yeah but UC2 was a sequal to, and Yeah UC2 looks even better then UC1 plus it had a full multiplayer mode. Also UC1 Came out THIS Generation and UC2 is not a sequal of a sequal that's part of another Sequal like MW2 and ODST are. I See it this way GOTY List 1. UC2 2. DS 3. D.O or Assasins Creed 2(because you need a multiplat on the list to) 4. Forza 3(mostly because you have to put at least 1 360 Exclusive game on the list, It's an unofficial rule) GOTY Either DS or UC2.
WTH is Uncharted 2 doing there? It doesn't belong on that list of Nominees. It IS Game of the Year. :) And who made this website? It's sooo... n/m
Killzone 2 was an amazing game and all but I think Uncharted 2 deserves it. It's crazy how amazing that game is.
I give GOY to Uncharted 2 but runner up goes to Assassin's Creed 2. Both are great games.
has to be there not necessarily winning goty but it has to be mentioned oh yeah, where's flopza 3 - the definitive racer? LMAO!!1!
5.undecided between Modern Warfare 2 and Dragon Age Origins (360) 4.Batman Arkham Asylum (360) 3.Infamous (PS3) 2.Resident Evil 5 (360) 1.Uncharted 2 (PS3) I got both a 360 and a PS3, so this is the opinion of an honest gamer, not a fanboy. I still can't help but believe that Sony fanboys were bashing on MW2 solely because it poses a big threat to Uncharted 2 for game of the year awards. If MW2 came out January 2010 I doubt it would have received the amount of hate/bashing that it got.
I hate it because its a bad game that had broken multiplayer for the first 3 days I had it, the player limits on MP are too small and it feels like a hack and slash rush job with no substance.... I think PS3 only owners rip on multiplats because they are not as good, not because they dont want other people to play good games. Too me, playing MW2 after playing Killzone 2 felt bland and amatuer. Playing prototype after playing inFamous felt cheap. Playing shift after playing GT5P felt..... well it looked decidedly average. Playing Band of brother after playing Resistance 2 felt boring and jerky.
but i'll be damned if it was as fun and addicting as modern warfare 1 or 2. judging by the sales,it would seem like most people disagree with your take on mw2. i wouldn't be surprised if its ps3 version's one day sales outsold killzone 2's entire sales figure. and it's not cause we're dumb gamers that like killing people with 3 bullets, it's just a fun and addicting game, period. killzone 2 does have a shortage of weapons, and if you've played both shooters, i don't see how you can like killzone's campaign better. but whatever, to each their own. and about broken multiplayer? uncharted 2's might not be "broken," but god, it takes forever to start a match in uncharted 2 and grenades solve everything. did an enemy melee you in the back? no problem, just throw a grenade at his feet while running away and you'll get away with the kill! i didn't bother much with killzone's multiplayer cause it DOES feel heavy. it shouldn't be a challenge to run through a doorway while sprinting, but boy do they make it one. i can almost guarantee that any current multiplat or 360 exclusive game would be held in such high regard by the sony fanboys if they were ps3 exclusives.
By the way you're talking, you would think they start you with 10 grenades. You start the game with one grenade and can only carry 2; It can hardly be called the answer to the game! They also leave the grenade restock in the most open part of the levels; It is a risk just to go after them!
considering it takes almost an entire clip to kill someone, with an AK at least. Yeah it ONLY takes around 8 actual bullets, but with the horrible accuracy of the gun and with people rolling around and taking cover, I would hardly think people don't want to get grenades simply cause they might get fired upon.
GOTY goes to Uncharted 2
Keep that milking expansion OFF the GOTY nominations. There are WAY more deserving games then that crap.
E4G still exists? Anyway, I'd replace Halo 3: ODST with Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Killzone 2 with Assassin's Creed 2. I liked ODST, especially the ambiance of the solo city sections, but it is NOT GOTY material. And while Killzone 2 lived up to, or even surpassed the graphical expectations, aside from the technical achievements, it's still just an above average shooter. I appreciate seeing it on the list of nominees though, as it seems that most outlets have completely forgotten that the game even exists. But regardless of the other nominees, Uncharted 2 is the undisputed champion. The last 2 chapters are a little disappointing, but the quality of the rest of the campaign, and the limitless replay value of the large amount of multiplayer options, make it easily the best overall package.
inFamous? Behind UC2 its my favourite game this gen....
TOP 10 games of the year as follows 1.uncharted2 2.COD:MW2 3.Assasins creed 2 4.killzone2 5.Batman AA 6.dragon age origins 7.Infamouse 8.Street fighter 4 9.Left for dead2 10.Ratchet&clank ACIT there you have it best games this year agree or disagree? just because... 11.demon souls downloadables: fat princess, shatter,shadow complex,flower
Replace odst with R&c a crack in time way better game + its longer Infamous deserves it more then odst the 360 had no games this year worthy of a goty nomination so putting odst on that list is a joke if it was up for best game that couldve been a expansion pack it would go between l4d2 and odst. Hidden gem of this year is definatly Demons souls.
Ok everyone else seems to be doing it so my list is somthing like 1. UC2 2. inFamous 3. Killzone 2 4. Ratchet and Clank ACiT 5. Flower Dont have a 360 so thats why I have no 360 exclusives on that list. I dont have any multiplatform titles on that list because I dont think any of them deserve to be there.
Why must websites add Halo in just for hits. The game was crap at $60.
they had to put some 360 exclusive in there and the best they could come up with was ODST, lmao no hesitations, 2009 belongs to: <<<<<<<& lt;<<<<< uncharted 2 >>>>>>>&g t;>>>>> runner up: <<<<<<<& lt;<<<<< killzone 2 >>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>
Hah, Modern Warfare 2 will get it now doubt, even though it isn't GOTY. Very good, but not GOTY.
