No Halo:Reach or GT5? Am I missing something here?
Wizziokid  +   1777d ago
I was thinking the same thing
brazilianbumpincher  +   1777d ago
thats why i prefer the official awards
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

I think everything on the 360 section
is also available on ps3. That should tell all of us something.

No GT5 or Halo: Reach is an automatic fail. GJ IGN.
kingjoker34  +   1777d ago
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.
Darkfiber  +   1777d ago
I don't care about either of those. Imagine that, people have different tastes than you. Amazing.
Jaybad54  +   1777d ago
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?
DatNJDom81  +   1777d ago
this is why I don't mess with ign anymore. They gotta stop the hate. Black is beautiful! And by black I mean PS3.

Where is reach and GT5?
How can we take this list seriously without the two biggest games ever?
HeroXIV  +   1777d ago
I hate how Bioshock Infinite has been nominated and we haven't seen any gameplay. :(
Philaroni  +   1777d ago
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.

Realistic racing sims are dying
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.

Where is gt5
I can get them not putting reach up there but not GT5....cause reach is nothing more then a rehash
Philaroni  +   1777d ago
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.
GiggMan  +   1777d ago
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...
Edito  +   1777d ago
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???
clintos59  +   1777d ago
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.
raztad  +   1777d ago
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.
