"We've scoured the halls, sourced out the hot demos and played the biggest games and now we're ready to announce IGN's Best of Gamescom 2010 awards nominees."
No Halo:Reach or GT5? Am I missing something here?
I was thinking the same thing
that is the culmination of a host of opinions from all types of various media that are at gamescom rather than the opinion of one site,especially IGN whose own self importance and arrogance disgusts me. anyway the official award ceremony is today im sure you all know results were.. Best of gamescom: Gran Turismo 5 Hardware Accessories: PlayStation Move Best Console Game: Gran Turismo 5 Best Mobile Game: Super Scribblenauts Best Online Game: Guild Wars 2 Best PC game: Crysis 2 Best of Family Entertainment: Epic Kirby's Yarn
Where did you get that list?
ceremonies today aswell
is also available on ps3. That should tell all of us something.
No GT5 or Halo: Reach is an automatic fail. GJ IGN.
Yeah for some reason IGN hasnt given any awards to GT5 all year, atleast the USA one has isnt. I like IGN and all, but they have been off the ball lately.
I don't care about either of those. Imagine that, people have different tastes than you. Amazing.
To be fair, you are in the minority if you dont care about either of those games
The two most popular games not even given a nomination is "different tastes"? This is a "professional" gaming site? Maybe they should stop being so immature and add two games that are clearly front runners for top selling games for both systems. It has nothing to do with taste. This issue is about them clearly excluding the two most popular games. It looks like Reach and GT will be the best games in their series... how can they think they can get away with excluding them and not being criticized?
this is why I don't mess with ign anymore. They gotta stop the hate. Black is beautiful! And by black I mean PS3.
How can we take this list seriously without the two biggest games ever?
I hate how Bioshock Infinite has been nominated and we haven't seen any gameplay. :(
Is it just me or is GT5 getting left out all over the place. I was watching the Bonus Round and they never said one word about it in there last episode. The game sells just as much as Halo. Its adding more content then any other racer before it. NFSHP is cool and is doing many cool new things but as is GT5. Its odd the only media it gets is hate. Just saying.
The problem is that realistic racing games are dying and in their place extreme racing games are rising. Hot Pursuit is more on the extreme side and therefore appeals to the broader audience direction.
People want to play games like Split Second, Blur, and Burnout now. People that want to race around 100 closed circuit tracks and drive 500 realistic vehicles doing it are a dying breed with too much time on their hands.
I can get them not putting reach up there but not GT5....cause reach is nothing more then a rehash
GT5 should be up there but Reach is not a rehash, they are doing lots of cool things with the online like they always do. Halo is another game that gets so much bad attention from gamers just because its successful and Bungie always does some new cool things with it. You can still applicate a good game even if its not your cup of tea.
Usually I don't chime in on these "opinion" type deals, but that list is crazy. GT5 brings stuff to the table out the box that most games would charge an arm and a leg for as DLC. And let's face, I'm not a big Halo fan but even I'm getting it day one... That's how big that game is. Sometimes I wonder about IGN, I can't wait see how they rate these games...
The GT5 avoid is called hatred they know the game will sell like hot cakes and are trying to fade the hype in every possible way thats why it like this but no matter what the game will sell for good and what do u expect from IGN and Gametrailers???
I mean they picked crysis 2 over halo reach for the 360? And then pick Need For Speed over GT5? That is just full of fail.
Looking at the PS3 section they have 3 PS3 exclusives. Adding GT5 would have been overwhelming, besides GT5 surely doesnt need IGN approval to sell.
