Check out the list of winners from G4's Best of 2009 awards, which just aired on TV (including Game of the Year).
So the big winners were basically Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 - Not a big surprise about that. And I actually enjoyed this show much more that the VGAs. No celebrities, no performances, it was just about the games.
they said something special for christmas and new years new maps anyone?
Modern Warfare 2 won Best Multiplayer of the Year and Uncharted 2 won Game of the Year.
Another GOTY for UC2. Now watch it sweep the rest of the awards. UC2 ftw!
Very good list. I'm glad Brutal Legend got some recognition for its art direction. And it's great that Uncharted 2 got GOTY. It's the best game I've played all year.
Actually agree with all the awards, seems unbiased. Good job G4!
SO DESERVE ALL THE PRAISE...
Its a WAY superior shooter to MW2
UC2 was the best game i've played this year
Yeah, I watched it and was incredibly surprised that they actually picked Uncharted 2. Of course it's better than mw2 but I didn't see that coming.
Congrats, Naughty Dog/Sony :)
Uncharted 2 is the best game I played this generation. The 4 best games that seperate this generation are COD4, Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Uncharted 2.
Whoever decided that Mario and Luigi was a better RPG than Dragon Age or Demon Souls needs to have a word with themselves.
It deserves it. No other game compares to Uncharted 2 right now. If you do not have a PS3 you need to get one for this game alone. It is THE reason at the moment to buy a PS3 and enjoy a great console.
That should have gotten GOTY. Im just sayin....
Glad to see UC2 got goty. Also glad KZ2 got nothing. The campaign was so mediocre!
better then Mw2 short a** campaign. No game immersed you like Killzone 2's. It was light on story but high on action.
MW2 over KZ2?
surprised scribblenauts didn't win anything for innovation or originality. feel sad for that little game.
looks like a overall pretty good list
I agree, i especially like some of the more unique categories that they have. I dont agree with all of them (like borderlands losing art direction and demon souls not winning RPG) but thats ok its their list and for the most part this is is great. Honestly this is one of the better GOTY lists, who would have thought it would come from G4?
I'm glad to see Demon's Souls get some love! God I love that game, one of the best this gen!
I guess I am going to have to check that out.
It's actually a pretty cool game.
Better then Demons Soul's or Dragon Age: Origins? hell no.
Of course not, but it's still a fun game. Anyways, I've been playing Demon's Soul and it's so awesome. I never though I'd actually enjoy dying so many times lol. My vote would go to Demon's Soul.
It's a very good. All Mario RPGs are top knotch. And handheld Mario RPGs are among the best. Also congrats to Uncharted 2, you changed the standard for games forever
Yeah that one suprised me too. I still haven't played the game, but if they think it's a better game than DA:O and DS then it deserves a shot. I'll just borrow it from a friend though. I personally think Dragon Age is the top RPG of the year.
i think gta should have won that one
I agree. Broken Steel shouldn't have been dlc, at least continuing the game, and the game should have originally ended at 30. Also, Bethesda has done nothing to patch the ps3 version, except the GOTY canadian version. I will not purchase any new games from them in the future. the rest of the dlc was broken as well, and if you look at the forums, there has been complaints, but no patches.
WTF is your problem with Fallout 3 ? I played it on my PS3, unlocked all the Trophies and it didnt crash ONE time. But i have the Cut version that doesnt have gore, maybe thats the problem .
My problem is Bethesda won't patch it, because of the problems. I didn't have a problem with it until the dlc came out, and there was one patch before the first two came out, but not after the last two came out. I love Fallout 3, but jeezum crow they need to fix it.
i might be alone but i enjoyed big surf island quite a lot ...
@ darthv72 That was one of the winners that I was a little taken aback by, only because the other games are great, too. That said, Mario & Luigi is such a fun game. The series has always been fantastic.
At least Demon's Souls won something.
Apart from sound design, this was all pretty great. I would have given sound to KZ2...but only because the guns were recorded in 7.1 Dolby Digital...and it just sounds better than MW2. Also, there's an echo effect of whatever the last sound you heard was when you pause it. Genius!
isn't funny how RE 5 didn't get mention for anything. Capcom dropped the ball on one there biggest franchises. RE 5 was such a huge disappointment, it shouldn't have took them 4 yrs to release that game if the mechanics was similar to RE 4. I hope they're paying attention.
G4 in particular were not fans of RE5. They only gave it a 3 out of 5. Some people really liked it, others not so much. G4 falls into the not so much category.
I actually liked RE5. The fact that it lacked survival horror was really disappointing, but the gameplay made up for it. As a horror game it sucked, but as an action game it was pretty good.
Uncharted 2 FTW Suck on it bots
to the power of boom
It only does Game of the Year.....EVERY YEAR !! :D
Uncharted 2 for the win.
Not saying that Uncharted is good and all but man come on now . Not one Award for BatMan .G4 Award = Fail .Even a PS3 fan can see this. BatMan even sold more copy's than Uncharted and made the Book's of World Record.
yes and wii fit sold more than both of them put together with MW2 sales included and they never got GOTY but hey salez matter right
Glad to see another GOTY for Uncharted 2. It really does has the best campaign of all time.
Woo Adam Sessler wasn't kidding when he said Uncharted 2 is the best single player campaign he ever played.
I can't say Uncharted 2 has the BEST campaign I've ever played, but it's certainly in the top 3.
4 goty so far unless i missed some well done naughty dogs
the only worthy contention for GoTY is MW2 but that is majorly due to hype! MW2 is nothing special and is far inferior compared to KZ2! - which really grin my gear because with THAT hype, it manages to steal the best FPS title from KZ2! luckily no one is stupid enough (yet!) to let MW2 won GoTY over Uncharted 2!
Batman and Demon Souls are worthy to be contenders. Also AC2.
Agreed. Killzone 2 should have won for best shooter, but it's no travesty for MW2 to have won. They have to appease those poor 360 owners somehow...
I might actually have to check that out, I'm a real RPG hardcore. Finished playing through Paper Mario RPG on Gamecube about 1 year ago, if this Mario & Luigi is similar or in the same vein as Paper Mario RPG, I might have to buy a Wii this time, beside I really need to play Punch Out as well. I'm glad Demon's Souls won something for its unique multiplayer. Uncharted 2 as GOTY, undisputable ! PS3 FTW ! EDIT: Oh snap ! Thanks Oldsnake for the info, I guess I need to pay more attention to other games beside PS3, DSi LL it is then.
you know that its on the DS right ?
Uncharted 2 Game of the Year.....congrats naughty dog and thank you for making such an amazing game.
I've still yet to get Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, I might get it for the kids at Xmas. And then play it more than they do. Being a parent has its privileges.
Best RPG should be Demon's Souls, best Fighting Game should be BlazBlue Other than that, a pretty decent list.
It's not a game, It's an experience. Another GotY Trophy Unlocked! Ching!
Charted - GoTY! *ching*
Congratulations to all the winners.
Great going UC2.. of course after today PS3 fans will still complain that the media is biased.
Because they are biased and payed in the form of semen.
Not going to complain that G4TV is biased?
From what I read, I have to say G4tv did this very fairly and chose some appropriate winners. In fact, I don't even disagree with any of their decisions.
Nice for Uncharted 2.
Im glad for that.
I'm really glad they actually nominated Infamous.
Where was Tekken 6 for best fighting game!?
