What is the best game of this year as chosen by GamesPoint? Find out in our Game of the Year exclusive, in this article!
I got borderlands and while it is fun, it is definitely not GOTY. It's a matter of opinion, but most people would agree that this game is not GOTY. A great game nonetheless.
yeah borderlands was fun while it lasted. I got to lvl 50 and did all the missions and haven't touched it since. The missions were not too memorable IMO, so have not felt like replaying the game. maybe the new dlc coming out will pull me back in. Demon's Souls in the other hand has me going back all the time and im on my 3rd play-through.
No. Just no.
but I'm not clicking. Borderland is GoTY? how many other websites have you seen listed this game even as a contender? hardly, right? and somehow you chose it as GoTY over everybody else's choice Uncharted 2! nice though. I'm not saying borderland is a bad game but there are games that are way better this year overall compared to it like Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls and Batman AA!
I felt like we didn't want to follow all the others, but instead do this from the heart. After playing a lot of the big titles of the year, we decided to go with Borderlands, as it was the only one that we found was bringing us back into the game. That's also the thing about GotY though, everyone will at some point feel differently about a different game, and while it may seem scandalous, is really what any art form is all about.
Sure, I totally understand why many people would not agree with GOTY, but in our combined opinion: MW2 - Not GOTY Standard UC2 - One of our contenders AC2 - One of our contenders ODST - Not GOTY Standard inFAMOUS - One of our contenders In the end it came down to which one you could have the most fun with, including replay value, graphics/art-style, and everything that would make a gamer come back to the game, and in the end, Borderlands ticked every one of those boxes.
I'd replace inFamous with Killzone 2 and add Batman AA to the list. Anyways, Borderlands was one of my favorite games this year(certainly the most addictive) and I love to see it getting a GOTY award. Totally deserves it.
Soda, I guess you never played the addicting Demon's Souls?
Nope, I didn't. Played KZ 2 and inFamous though. =)
Yeah I totally forgot, Batman AA and Killzone 2 were also checked out for GOTY but, same thing, not enough reason to come back after your done with the main story mode. Challenge mode just isn't enough.
well Borderland surely has more replay value since it incorporates rpg elements. One big downside of the game however, is the bosses. The last boss esp is a joke. Overall I still very much enjoy the game, and I even got the zombie island dlc.
I named that boss "Monster Vagine".
Let's be honest though, the bosses weren't a major part in the game. Sure, they bring something to the game, but there not really there to get the ball rolling. The real fun in Borderlands comes from the missions and the DLCs.
And finding more guns! Borderlands is one of few games that I immediately started replaying after I finished it.
don't let it go play it
maybe its just me but after years of playing JRPG's Borderlands just didn't do it for me, I just kind of felt like i was playing Korean mmo's all over again except without vast gear customizations. Uncharted 2 would be my GOTY since i haven't finished AC2/Batman AA/ for reasons that i just keep going back to UC2 MP(lvl53) after getting platinum SP but it does comes down to preferences.
neve rheard of this site, but im glad to see someone else thinks this game is GotY material cause it is definitely mine
This isn't even in my top 10 let alone #1. The game is mad buggy, the split screen menus are a joke, the story - barely exists. It was a great first try at a somewhat new idea and I can't wait for Borderlands 2 because I think it will kick butt...but seriously in a year where we had so many AAA games they pick this? Goodbye credibility (if it ever existed).
I'm sorry that it's lost credibility for you, but everyone has their own opinion, and this game truly has more re-playability than most other AAA titles.
I would say you gain some.Anyone who takes the time to explain their decision on here is ok in my books. I dont agree with your decision,but so what :)
1. I respectfully disagree 2. Who the hell is gamespoint??
Sorry guys i disagree i've had so much fun and spent so much time in borderlands that i agree with this site, its not to everbodys taste but i love that game
Can you people STOP giving away the entire article in the main picture? What's wrong with you?
I only played it for a few hours and enjoyed it, however Uncharted 2 has to be GoTY for me. A lot of you guys are going on about Demon Souls, is it really THAT good? I'm tempted to get it but am a bit put off by some of the reviews saying how hard and punishing it is, and to be fair, I'm a very average gamer.
"A lot of you guys are going on about Demon Souls, is it really THAT good?

I played Demon Souls to the end and it's no GOTY for me. Borderlands is a game with a mix of genres never seen before and a very good 4 player co-op.The game is so good in many ways...it's also my GOTY but opinions r like @ssholes...everybody has one.
