The votes are in, the accountants have verified the results, and the expensive awards ceremony we were going to hold at the Staples Center was sensibly cancelled...it's time for X-Play & G4tv.com's Best of E3 2010 Winners!
How does LBP2 not even get nominated for "Best Platformer"? Did I miss something? Oh, it's G4...
If you had a bad opinion of G4 prior to reading this article...then why did u click? The title clearly has "G4tv" in it. IMO, all their choices were spot on. I'm glad Dance Central got best motion game. From what I've seen, it deserves it. Its the only beacon of hope that has come from Kinect IMO. I see many people buying Kinect just for Dance Central. Edit: 4 disagrees already...wow, whats wrong with you people? Doesn't the constant defending of PS3 exclusives get old after a while. Look, Uncharted 2 is the best game I've played this generation..but do you see me crying when PS3 exclusives in general don't get enough attention or recognition? Time to grow up people. "The media has been doing its best to avoid the existence of LittleBigPlanet 2 on any of these "best of e3" lists, as far as I can tell. I honestly have no idea what's going on with them, because LBP 2 is on the top of my most-wanted list." So..because YOU like it, the media has to be interested in it as well. And didn't G4 give LBP1 a perfect score? What are you complaining about?
Epic Mickey beat out Infamous 2. Come on. I didn't really have a neg. impression of G4 until now.
More media bias and betrayal of the truth! Because as we all know, the news media hates the PS3. Riiiight. Gotta love n4g.
well people have shown metacritics bias on youtube I don't think it's too preposterous. we've seen glimpses even if arguable of microsoft trying to buy people like the E3 thing. Then you have the fact that microsoft partly owns mtv which owns gametrailers.com
The media has been doing its best to avoid the existence of LittleBigPlanet 2 on any of these "best of e3" lists, as far as I can tell. I honestly have no idea what's going on with them, because LBP 2 is on the top of my most-wanted list. I am a huge fan of the first game, I've got a couple of levels uploaded that I'm very proud of, and the huge amount of changes they're putting in for the sequel really has me excited. More user-friendly create tools, new thermometer and level-chaining allow for bigger levels & entire games built within the game, more versatility in the creation tools, cinematic tools, logic tools, it's taking everything that made the first game great and exponentially increasing the ease of use and variety of possibilities. And it's being completely ignored by everyone's favorites from E3. I have no issues with the nominees & winners from G4, in particular, but since you brought up LBP 2 I just thought it appropriate to respond with my thoughts on the complete absence of the game from the media's favorites at e3.
I am guessing that the best way to have your favorite games included on the "Best Of" lists is to make your own. Games like LBP2 and GT5 don't really need validation here. They will be excellent games regardless. The lesser known games need this spotlight if they are to thrive. Games like Halo, Gears of War, Gran Turismo, LBP, and Zelda/Mario are going to do well no matter what. Games like Rage on consoles, Brink, and Journey will do well with this kind of hype.
I agree with biggest to a certain extent, but I thought this was a "best of E3" list, not the "lesser know games that need the spotlight at E3 if they are to thrive" list.
Maybe it wasn't the best platformer their. Typical Fanboy. You know that Kirby Epic Yarn and Donkey Kong will be better.
THis is all over the place for their nominees and where they put games... their nomineess and winners seems equally weird. Im surprised they didnt mention best interviews and have the one where Keith Apicary interrupted them talking to the GT5 crew lol.
Best Action/Adventure Game Winner: Disney Epic Mickey Best Racing Game Winner: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit @BeaArthur yea u right
I think some of their choices may have been based off what they didn't already know. I mean how many years can GT5 win best racing game? They've been showing it at E3 for years now and it would be weird if it won every year. Besides, NFS' reboot sounds like it's going to be awesome and it was a nice surprise at the show. I don't have an issue with it. And as always, it's just one media outlets opinion don't let it ruin your day.
I can't wait to see more about Rage.
Yup, it looks amazing and being multiplatform everyone gets to join in on the fun. No bitching needed :)
NFS:HP > GT5 Didn't expect that, but none the less NFS is going to be awesome.
How could you not expect it? GT5 has been there for 3 years. Hot Pursuit is new.
GTs probably been seen at to many E3's for these guys, a little shock factor from a new title goes a long way. Edit: Seferoth75 beat me to it.
How does Need for Speed get best racing game over Gran Turismo 5?
maybe there's too much hype over GT5?
I think its because people was expecting another crappy NFS game but instead got the creators from Burnout Paradise to reinvent a classic NFS series. Where GT5 was expected to be there. Just my two cents though.
Ya GT5 has been at E3 for 3 or so years now and everyone is tired of waiting. NFS is something new and has a new take on online car multilayer and the game as a whole is quite impressive. On a side note good to see ThatGameCompanys Journey getting the attention it deserves.
Need For Speed (the most recent outing) was a treat that they reworked it but it still wasn't better than Forza 3. We all know GT5 will be a far better driving sim than Forza 3. So how is it not a better driving sim than NFS (which at best is an arcade racer with good physics)? also I'm happy I saw a different E3 where Killzone 3 and Little Big Planet 2 were shown, cause it seems G4 didn't go to that.
I met to agree.
Well that was a fail,.. but don´t worry guys,.. when the games start coming out,.. Quality will always prevail even to hatters ,.. they will have to swallow crow again,.. When like after 9 months,.. I will still have shovelware on my wii,.. no great xbox exclusive,..That kinetic dance shit,.. It doesnt even respond on what you are really doing,.. shit,.. I know Sony will flood us again with AAA till the end of the year,..
And I am not saying I am not really hyped for some other games,..but that is just what it it for now HYPE,.. wii stuff,.. was just announced,.. But some games really dont deserve to be even mentioned on the list
All those awards are given in response to hype or trying to look unbiased. Certainly, there are some well-deserved awards, but the majority are lame
I have G4 blocked from ever appearing on my TV. They pretty much define "useless"
I respectfully disagree with about 75% of the winners/nominations.
That list was so zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz only marvel vs capcom 3 they got right.
This says it all http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...
Thanx bro ! great read !
This is G4. Move along.
