Demon's Souls is one of the most innovative and engaging games to have captured our imaginations and our spare time this year. It is also GameSpot's best RPG of 2009.
PS3 exclusive winning awards from the media. and from gamespot also? Is the world going to end soon?
Demon's Souls also won best RPG at Gametrailers. http://www.gametrailers.com...
Last year they gave Game of the Year to Metal Gear Solid 4, so it's not the newest thing for them to give awards to PS3 exclusives. But still, I'm happy to see this, because Demon's Souls is not only my RPG of the year, it's my overall Game of the Year, and it's good to see it getting recognized here!
Wow, Gamespot has gained a lot of respect back during these last few days. Their choices have been spot on. If UC2 wins GOTY, then there choices will have been the best.
If you have played that game you would know. While playing it's impossible not to get drawn right into that world.
2012 my friend... 2012...
how good this game is. ^_^
does that mean you will lose respect for them if they start giving GOTY awards to 360 or wii?
And all media KNOWS that(actually they knew this already a year ago). It is just NOT cool to hate PS3 anymore. On topic, the game deserves it! GREAT!
No, but I will loose respect if they make stupid choices or claims. I'm just saying that for the first time in a long time I agree with GameSpot and their choices are spot on. If a 360 game deserves an award then so be it, as long as it's the right choice (and this year, there's really no 360 games that deserve awards). EDIT: @Dasbunker wow, totally forgot about Forza. I think it's between it and NFS Shift. Both are pretty much on the same level so either will be fine.
im pro-sony but i think forza deserves best racing game of the year, GTA LCS DLC deserves best DLC of the year and L4D2 is a strong candidate for multiplayer game of the year, lots of people like that game despise it should've been DLC.. the rest was meh-ish i agree there werent many AAA games on 360 this year, but some could deserve one or two awards
I actually had to force myself to stop playing DS but then something inside clicks and I'm back playing it till 3 am It feels nice playing a game that requires some sort of timing, skill, and planning rather than "R1 shoot R2 Grenade." Also feels good playing something when you play it on NG+ its a lot more challenging instead of the same attack patterns, same enemy attitude, etc. By the way I'm having problems getting homeboy to sell White Arrows, if anyone knows the trick outside finding the white bow (which I found on 4-2) I'd apreciate it :/
Still would have given RPG of the year to Dragon Age, but I suppose this is a good choice.
not a ps3 exclusive, i am quite sure it is on pc too
Hell must have frozen over, lol.
@ saaking "No, but I will loose respect if they make stupid choices or claims. I'm just saying that for the first time in a long time I agree with GameSpot and their choices are spot on." so, if you dont agree with their claims and choices, you will loose respect for them. People in N4g really think they are more than what they are.
Dragon Age deserved to win. It is more of a ROLE-playing game than Demon's Souls. Demon's Souls is a great game, yes, but it isn't really that strong when it comes to, you know, ROLE-playing.
Well deserved, Game is fantastic and unique. Gamepsots respect has increased heaps for me.
@justpass: I entirely prefer Dragon Age as RPG of the year for just that reason of supplying more... RPGness... than DS. But DS of course has the graphics and online. But that's the good thing about multiple publications. A lot of different games get recognized for their different strengths. Both can claim to be RPG of the Year and both deserve it imo.
It's a toss up between Demon's Souls and Dragon Age, simply can't choose.
GameSpot has never been anti-PS3. It's only you PS3 fans who scream bias and make conspiracy theories because they don't think *insert PS3 exclusive* is as great as you all make them out.
I'm going to start building my bombshelter in my backyard the world must be coming to an end.
I lost 780,000 souls trying to clean up before beating New game+. Got so mad I put down the game for almost a month. Picked it up yesterday and was at 1,000,000 souls in 2 hours. BTW: The game is at pure white till christmas. Now's your chance to get the Friendship Ring!
I got this game on Sunday. It definitely deserves best RPG. But damn, it's really tough. @[email protected] "not a ps3 exclusive, i am quite sure it is on pc too" HAHAHA OH WOW
·HUGE ·HARD ·ADDICTIVE This game deserves all the praise possible
wonder why $ony didnt ever make the announcement about them buying up gamespot ? Let face it this game was sub par the reviews for the game average at best. Yet gamespot pick it as rpg of the year the no other way to explain it other then $ony now owns gamespot. Anyone with more then 2 brain cells know that the rpg of the year is Dragon Age
Personally, I wish FROM Software would stick to what they do best; Making dark, brooding RPGs. Some of their best work was the King's Field series on PS1/PS2. I also love their Tenchu series. Demon's Souls rules, but I'd welcome a new King's Field game. It's one of my all time favourite series.
Another PS3 exclusive winning yet another award. Nice to see that. This game is a monster!
360 only owners are having a 2009 gaming slum. Not the PS3 and multiple console and PC owners.
Gamespot is becoming worse and worse.
for the 360 camp, lol
Demon's Souls won at IGN as well. And not only is it the best RPG of the year, its also the hardest in a very, very long time. It deserves everything it gets.
So in translation that means they are becoming less biased and not applying different rules to different consoles.
