Announced at the Spike TV 2010 VGA's
Well deserved. The amount of improvements made in ONE year was astounding. @Bnet343- I see no reason anyone would be "angry" about this...but thats just me. Not only did AC: B improve the formula but it added an awesome multiplayer component. Necrum- Your right..if the category was "action" alone...then GOW3 would have probably taken it. But the category was "action-adventure'..s o yeah. Btw..did you play both games? I did. Thats one of the problems on N4G. Many people here judge games that they haven't played. I can guarantee that 90% of the people who leave negative comments in this thread are people who didn't play AC: B and/or just very bitter people.
I disagree. Adventure...maybe But GOW3 was 110% action. f-cking hell this is bs
I agree. Assassin's Creed should not have won. But it is the VGA's and gametrailers has the biggest say, so multiplats will generally win the awards. We all know deep down God of War 3 should have won.
All in all, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a much better game than GoW3. It has more variety, a better story, and it's not the same game we've played over and over with only the graphics changing.
well i played both i love ACB but i liked GOW3 more.
God of War 3, I would say deserved it more. AC Brotherhood is one of the few AC games that I think should not have been made. It didn't really improve upon the formula at all. It was just as good as AC2 but it was more of the same with the multiplayer component. God of War 3 shouldn't have been forgotten.
loved them both and as long as it was one of them im happy. AC:B had more to it and more to do but gow3 had the more epic story and events worth playing a few times. My GOTYs.
LOL! Some people are going to be mad about this he he.
Not really. For what its worth its a good game but kind of seems like more AC2. I think it benefited from only coming out a couple of months ago. Doesn't change the fact that gow3 is my favourite action adventure and by critics scores they agree.
Mario Galaxy 2 is the best game you ppl know that, this doesnt prove sh!t.
Mario is a fun game, it's more of a platformer than an action adventure.
there isnt a platformer award in vga´s book...
that was a kinda stupid choice especially when you got god of war next to it
*puts sunglasses on*..............*waits for fanboy rage*
game was great,.. but GOW3 deserved it more,..
Funny will be if RDR wins as GoTY. I really hated that game and it is ...
It actually did LOL!!!
RDR was good. Im just glad it didn't go to BlackCocks.
Without castlevania getting nominated, this is the best choice they could have (GOW is pure action, I think it deserved to be there...)
Dang, Red Dead Redemption and God of War 3 lose best action adventure and Halo: Reach loses best fps. XD
bs i say.
WOW, halo loses to blak ops , GOW3 loses to ASScreed B.... fukin retards runing the vgas.... facepalm
Action Adventure??? I don't see GOW3 as an adventure game. If it was just Action than it would go to God of War 3 easily. But Action Adventure? I think they made the right choice. I would of just said Best Adventure game but I would give that to Fable 3.
Red Dead Redemption should have been best action adventure game of the year!!! It had a better single player and multiplayer than this!!! the online the community is still alive from that game. Your likely to fine a online match before AC Brotherhood. AC Brotherhood takes too long to get in a match for crying out loud LOL!!!
your right i really dont like ACB online i wish it had a free roam or wish they copied RDR online lol
Red Dead Redemption!!!! got game of the year!!!! I thought they was going to pick COD Black-ops. What a surprise!!!!
YOUR IN AN ADVENTURE! AND WHAT HAPPENS IN AN ADVENTURE? ACTION!
BS of EPIC Proportions. Assassin's creed is one of my favorite new franchises this gen but come on...GOW III is the clear winner in this category. Shame...
I think Assassin Creed deserved it, they brought something really new into the series and the Multi player is really amazing. Not to hate GOW3 wasnt as amazing as the 2 or 1 just graphics wise and tell me something really epic that was new into GOW3 other than the new Gods, maps, and weapons..still amazing game though. I am happy with both and still playing both.
god, maps, weapons... wat more do u want its awesome asscreedB is just another, "meh"
Something that is epic and new...was nothing new for me. I loved GOW2 AND GOW1 but 3 was like ohh more graphics and new weapons your done!!! And I never said GOW3 sucked or not awesome just Assassin Creed had something that was actually new to the series other than weapons.etc
