Kotaku: As the year wraps up and the last of the big games roll out it's time to start our debate, the debate about what was the single greatest game of the year.
They Have Got To Be..... Reads Article.........Ohhhh
Kotaku lost its creditability along time ago... Call of Duty: Black Ops for the "Xbox 360"(wtf?) Mass Effect 2 NBA 2K11(best sports not goty) Red Dead Redemption this is a joke. ME2 and RDR only ones that have a right to be on that list
*looks through list... doesn't see god of war 3... ALT f4*
Call of Duty: Black Ops for the Xbox 360 Mass Effect 2 NBA 2K11 Red Dead Redemption What a bunch of assholes.
They're missing three: God of War III, Heavy Rain, and Bayonetta. List is fail. How come this list seems like it came from one person. There's no way a group of people could honestly miss out on three of the best games of the year. This is downright laughable.
They simply fail as gamers, no halo reach on the 360?
I think I broke a rib from laughing too hard. Parapraxis list is all win.
Kotaku is an extremely xbox-centric site. Read the comments section, not 1 person mentioned GOW 3, GT5 or Heavy Rain. I'm wondering why they haven't officially partnered with MS yet.
Call of Duty: Black Ops for the Xbox 360 Mass Effect 2 NBA 2K11 Red Dead Redemption They might as well just call it "360 GOTY." What is the point in having a Game of the Year award if you are going to shun the PS3 and Wii?
Maybe thats the games they thought was best this year, Not all the platforms have to be represented in every finalist list....
LOl ignoring games like Heavy Rain and GOW 3, while choosing NBA 2k11. Kotaku effing sucks.
To Parapraxis, It is a odd list and one which I would disagree on but to say that a list is flawed because it doesn't feature a game from every platform is ridiculous, It is a ridiculous list because several games that are better in my opinion are missing where lesser games are represented.
hello? they're ignoring the highest rated game of the year SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2?!?!?! and of course GOWIII at least. kotaku are idiots, ignore them, I mean, they pud COD:BO in the list for GoTY but not BF:BC2...*laughs*
God of War III..Super Mario Galaxy..? Wait..didnt Kotaku slowed down a Gran Turismo 5 video when it was showing the loading screen, and said it toke 2 minutes?
Super Mario Galaxy isn't a 2010 game mate.
It doesn't take much brains to know he means Galaxy 2
Take out NBA2k11 and add SMG2/GoW3/Reach. Thoughs games deserve at the very least a nomination.
the GOTYBOX360 haters gona hate
Shooter/RPG/Sports/Action. ¬¬ @Below According to IGN: Genre: RPG Gamespot: Action Role-Playing "dude"
Mass Effect 2? An RPG? The hell you smokin', dude?
The term "RPG" is very loose this gen.
its definitely an rpg, just as much as it is a tps. its a hybrid. because you can take the sheppard from me1 and continue to use him/her in me2 makes the game a lot more personal than most other games, because that is your sheppard and you can play however you like.
I like how they specifically cite the 360 version of BO. What a poor list for GOTY. Holy fuck! I missed NBA 2K11....are they fucking high?!
They call that GOTY? Wtf? Heavy Rain? God of War 3? HALO REACH?!?!
KOOOTAAAKUUUUUUUUUUU! No Bayonetta? No Vanquish? And you dare to put Black Ops in this fu- Ah, screw this. It's not like those lists mean much anyways.
God of fucking war?
Not surprised about their list, really.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. Just ignore all the good games then. Damn Kotaku and their weird ways.
Surprised Dance Central isn't in there.
Kotaku lost credibility when they tried to play off GT5 having stupid load times by slowing down a video. They don't like PS3 and thats been proven by thier own actions in writing. Anyone can look beyond thier bs that has half a brain.
Is it April allready? WOW this has got to be a joke!
Black Ops and NBA 2K11? Haha, funny, Kotaku. Now where's the real list of nominees? ME2 and RDR deserve a place on the list, but are they seriously saying something like New Vegas for example, (even with the plethora of bugs/glitches), is less deserving than a basketball game that comes out every freaking year? "Oh, but this time you can dribble with even more precision and you can practically see every bump on the ball!"
2K11 is groundbreaking in the fact that it doesn't suck as much as annual sports games usually do... Key words being "as much"
Not just any Black Ops, has to be for the 360. LOL
Doesn't matter much what the others are... as long as ME2 or RDR win it.
NBA2k11? Really Kotaku? Really?
Outside of playstationlifestyle.com, post GT5 with review-gate, lol, when PS3 fans were up in arms reviewers didn't all give the game 10's, will you take any awards seriously? Surely it can't work both ways. Its either they are garbage or not. It can't be that they are garbage when they score a PS3 game low but great when they give a PS3 game GOTY. that would just be hypocritical...
What a terrible list. wtf is up with NBA 2k11, why would you even put that there, why not halo reach or god war 3? But out of their crap list, RDR should win, its a very original idea, theres like no western open world games (except for Gun many years back) and they did an amazing job. Mass Effect 2 is a great game but I think RDR is more deserving
??? ... Hahahahahaha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ! How that f*ckn joke of a webs..scrap that, blog still has its articles published on N4G and still manages to have 3 stars as a news source is beyond me. -_- If kotaku were a restaurant, not only would they not have a single star, they would have been closed a long time ago due to all the cockroaches which would have been found there (and them intentionally poisoning the food)
They're xbox 360 fanboys and yet they don't have Halo: Reach on the list? I'm so confused
they are 360 fanboys with no taste. COD:BO instead of Reach and BF:BC2? laughable. I'd gladly walk up to any of the kotaku staff any day of the year and laugh in their faces, not because I disrespect their opinions and taste, but because they are just so "off" when it comes to gaming.
Black Ops shouldn't even be on that list. IMO
In a year that saw GOW3, Heavy Rain, Halo Reach, AC: Brotherhood etc...they nominate NBA 2K11?! Oh oh, and Black Ops but only for the 360? That's a total fanboy comment right there. People freakin' act like the PS3 version runs on DOS or something. Would you kindly #$%& off? Speakin' of 'would you kindly', I'd even nominate BioShock 2 before that pap. NBA. Wow.
