oh wait those are flop games 80% at meta LOL as opposed to 96 for UC2 -highest rated exclusive game on HD consoles best racing game -dirt 2 oh wait flopza3 is the definitive flop of 2009 .it didnt even reach 250k in US
would have been more than 96 at meta.. thanks to sites that wanted to see PS3 game fail. but thankfully the whole media thought it was a great game.
Not surprised about Uncharted 2 picking up another Game of the Year award - It's well deserved.
Best Fighting Game: Street Fighter IV Best Strategy Game: Empire: Total War Best Handheld Game: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Best Downloadable Game: Battlefield 1943 Best Puzzle Game: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box Best Racing Game: DiRT 2 Best Sports Game: NHL 10 Game of the Year: Uncharted 2 Best Action Game: Uncharted 2 Best PS3 Game: Uncharted 2 Best Music/Rhythm Game: DJ Hero Best Role-Playing Game: Dragon Age: Origins Best PC Game: Dragon Age: Origins Best Shooter Game: Modern Warfare 2 Best Competitive Multiplayer Game: Modern Warfare 2 Best Wii Game: New Super Mario Brothers Wii Best 360 Game: Assassin’s Creed 2 good list
I still say if KZ had released later in the year and been still fresh in everyones mind, it would be getting alot more credit. MW cant hold KZ's ammobelt.
I totally agree. KZ2 is a phenomenal game; both the campaign & multiplayer is so unbelievably fun. Sure, KZ2 doesn't receive loads of awards, but that doesn't mean it's a bad game. It's easy for people to forget about the games released earlier in the year. It's the burden 1st quarter games must bare I guess. *shrug*
Call of duty is the same game we played 2 years ago with a few new features. It's still a game for noobs that requires little skill, but now caters for campers too. The singleplayer campaign is rediculously short also. Killzone 2 offers and unbeatable FPS experience. The shooting gameplay demands a lot more skill and is so much more fun. The singleplayer is amazing and the multiplayer wasn't full of glitches.
Didn't they get the memo? Forza 3 is the definitive racing game...
it's a way better game then MW2! oh well, being popular does warrant some awards too I think!
Great. List, to the guy that says where's ODST, it wasn't anything new.
but I really don't agree with their best racer - forza 3 should have got it.
Open zone is that way >>>>
Assassins Creed 2 That's not a 360 game that's also on PS3, lol.
360 haz no games :)
Game informer is possibly the worst gaming publication since EDGE. Lazy, stupid people one and all. Their opinions do not effect me. My game of the year is still Punch-out and I stand by that... because, I CAN THINK FOR MYSELF!
My fellow Sony gamers, this is another accolade for the PS3 and its games made for the classy, mature, and intelligent gamers.
I didn't start playing Uncharted 2 until last night. Wasn't really falling for the hype. But damn, I can't stop playing it now. Definitely GOTY. One of the best games I have played this generation.
No one fell for hype. We simply like amazing games.
I know what you mean, I played through first 30% when released and due to a few circumstances did not return to the game until yesterday evening..... I played the game till 3:30am and finished it. Absolutely loved it, this time I could not put the controller down until I completed the game. Very tired at work today!
Ride the Amazing game wave my friend not the hype wave.
Uncharted 2 really deserves goty award. its just i couldnt never confidently say which game is my all time favourite (and i have played a lot of them, since the era of nes), but after playing Uncharted 2 i was stunned. not only because of its visuals, but also superb audio, smoother gameplay (compared to original), best voice acting and overall acting performance (thanks to motion capture) and other things, its just, the attention put to details is outstanding. add to that the addictive multiplayer coop and then you have it, near perfect game!
Finally someone pick the right racing game
It's a shame that arkham asylum and ratchet and clank future: a crack in time didn't get as much recognition as they should have. Those are probably my two favorite games that released this year. Also, dragon quest V on the ds, that game is incredible. Not a bad list from GI though.
Replace MW2 with KZ2 and Dirt 2 with Forza 3 and the list would've been good.
