GameDynamo - "Spike TV’s 2010 Video Game Awards are done and dusted. In case you’ve missed them or just want some recap, we’ve decided to highlight the most important moments as well as give you our impressions of the event."
the not for me was elder scrolls 5, i was hoping for the whole of tamriel like ES II. maybe that was too much to hope for, its was like 70,000 square miles
Elder Scrolls II (DaggerFall) doesn't encompass all of Tamriel. In fact in only includes two provinces, Hammerfall and High Rock.
My NOT went to Thor for being the worst piece of crap trailer at the VGAs. Also why didn't the 360 or Kinect show one good trailer? I mean they put out a 20sec Forza4 teaser, but come on!, that's like for the 1-2 million who play racers on the 360. They are pushing Kinect, this is an American awards show, where the hell are the hardcore games?!!! Most of it I was expecting. Anymore,, if there is a rumor, it's usually true for the most part. The actual 15secs of gameplay in action for the UC3 trailer made me crap myself. The Water and Fire in the trailer crush every other game that uses that element, and the Visuals are almost doubled on polish than UC2. This is a mixed thought, but I loved ES1-3, but Oblivion I though was way too repetative, and many of the quest weren't as thrilling or plot twisted. So i started to really like Fallout more. I am hoping this one has a larger variety of quests(My fav from IV was the Painter trappied in the painting quest...that was almost as amazing as the Tranquility Lane quest in FO3...I want quests with originality like that.) Also I hope that it doesnt used that shitty Gamebryo Engine or at least fix it please....!
Character of the Year: Ezio, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood *Winner* Kratos, God of War III Srgt. Frank Woods, Call of Duty: Black Ops John Marston, Red Dead Redemption Wrong, it went to Woods sadly
I don't know how Woods could have won because he had no character and overall Black Ops was a disappointment.
In no particular order, my favorite moments...that I can remember: Resistance 3 gameplay, ME3 trailer, Elder Scrolls, Prototype 2. My least favorite moments: The guys dancing at the beginning, most of the celeb presenters and UC3 announcement. Don't get me wrong, UC3 news is great, but shouldn't they have shown WAY more gameplay? If UC3 was the reason for MS skipping out with the Gears surprise, then MS should smack itself and consider itself punk'd. I say this because Gears could've crushed the VGAs if that was all that Naughty Dog was going to show of UC3. After Gears was cancelled to not show, UC3 was my personal reason to sit through the whole taping. What made it even worse was UC3's stuff was the last announcement for the show wasn't it? They really missed a good oppurtunity...both Naughty Dog and MS, lol. Oh well, Resistance 3 gameplay put a smile on my face, it looked good.
Active Reload - i disagree entirely with your view on UC3. it's the opening reveal for a huge game that isn't due for another 11 months..........why would they show a lot of gameplay now? i thought the opening teaser really set the tone as far as what the atmosphere of the game will be. and just curious - if your disappointed in UC3 for it's lack of gameplay - what do you feel towards gears3? - it didn't even make it for it's scheduled showing at the VGA.
"it's the opening reveal for a huge game that isn't due for another 11 months..........why would they show a lot of gameplay now?" Gears of War has that same amount of time also... "and just curious - if your disappointed in UC3 for it's lack of gameplay - what do you feel towards gears3? - it didn't even make it for it's scheduled showing at the VGA. " Here is a whole bunch of Gears 3 game play... http://www.youtube.com/resu... Gears 3 is still my most anticipated game of 2011 in every conceivable way possible. http://n4g.com/news/662906/... And look at the first comment of this article I just posted the link to, and the ones that follow. Why would MS be afraid of UC3 if that was all that was going to be shown of UC3?
Uncharted 3 - Trailer prepares for a epic journey i can't wait. Mass Effect 3 - Epic Elders Scroll 5 - EPIC Batman Arkham City - Epic Mortal Kombat Kratos - Epic Resistance 3 - Meh Forza 4 - Death Of GT Francise.
Death of GT ?? are u serious?
ok thats a exaggeration and fanboy statement, atleast death of GT5, Surely. GT6 will learn from these mistakes and from learn from forza series and dont do dumb stuff like normal and premuim cars, ported cars from PS2 and tracks, New physics and damage, heck take some ideas from Forza the unfathomable customization. Forza 4 graphics look supreb GT6 we will have to wait for.
Death of Gran Turismo? You do know that the next forza will have even more flaws then 3 from seeing in the trailer last night there TRYING doing everything like GT5 Wonder how many disc that will be
Forza 4 - Death Of GT Francise??????????? So Forza 4 is going to be released on the PS3?
There are a lot more fanbase for Gran Turismo than Forza, your point?
'Trailer prepares for a epic journey i can't wait' Pity you won't be able to play it considering your a 360 fanboy and do not even own a PS3.
Resistance 3 only meh? I only own a 360 and even I thought it looked hott. But I do agree about Forza. GT5 didn't live up to the hype judging by the average metacritic score and sales when compared to other GT games. I honestly thought GT5 would do Halo numbers the way Sonyfans preached about that game. I could see F4 being the first game to use both controller and Kinect. Controller to race, and Kinect to customize.
nah you can add my psn id lol if you want pm me ill give it to you. ( sorry if i delete you after because i don't know you ) Just because i was hugely dissapointed in a game that was sooo looking forward too. I own both systems and i play exclusives on PS3 and Xbox 360 some exclusive multiplatform. I like PS3 as much you probably do. Oh btw Uncharted 2 Platnuim trophy done long time ago. looking forward to Forza 4 because its actually a awesome sim mind you. The customization is immense make your own car. Somthing GT5 is still dreaming off.. BTW Uncharted 2 was one of the best games i played this generation.
Regardless of whether or not GT5 was up to your standards, claiming Forza 4 will be the death of GT is ignorant to the point of retarded or trolling. Take your pick.
uncharted 3 awsome no doubt resistance 3 for some gameplay in the video looked sick would love to see more Forza 4 for fall 2011 is MS really that crazy to launch forza 4 with 8 AAA games already confirmed for fall 2011. ES5 didn't see much i am more of fallout3/ME fan last ES to me was boroing(personal tase) prototype/insane(A MAJOR MEH 2012 AND 2012 LOL) bad jokes all over that's what she said joke was funny lol but overall vga was a little better than last year MS took the day off like they did at E3 again
Very disappointed in general and wasn't at all surprised by any of the reveals. Sony should have held the heck off on the Uncharted 3 reveal, it would have been massive. The BioWare reveal was basic and honestly a waste of timing, IMHO. I was really hoping it would be a new IP rather than the expected, because we knew the expected was coming. Prototype 2 was just, bleh. It looked the same as the first game and somehow I'm supposed to feel attached to the very lackluster story from the first game? The Bethesda reveal was lackluster due to it being an announcement trailer rather than even in-game related CGI or gameplay at all. Insane was another announcement trailer. Meh. Forza Motorsport 4 was a huge slap in the face of GT5, but it looked like it was rushed out as a live-action trailer just to show that it doesn't take as long to rush out a Forza game as it does for a GT game. Deadliest Warrior and Thor? Who really gives a frak? Just really a disappointing night combined with the majority of people clearly reading off teleprompters and not having much care about what they were presenting. Edit: And who the heck wrote the jokes? Damn if every single one of those porn names for video games weren't ancient as heck and just not funny by today's standards. I got the Jewel song reference to her singing at the Oscars, but that just wasn't done well enough to really hit it home.
honestly - it sounds like you might as well quit gaming..........just WHAT would make you happy? the UC3; ME3; and resistance3 trailers left me anxious for next year. (and i loved how kratos showed up in the MK trailer) i do agree on the elderscrolls video.......not even 10 seconds of gameplay? they shouldn't have even made it.
It was a complete waste of time. A surprise UC3 would have blown me away, not that the trailer wasn't amazing. Every trailer was up in minutes, so you would have to waste time suffering from terrible jokes and fake ass olivia munn (traitor) The only time I chuckled were at the NBA Elite R.I.P. and then the angry birds skit was alright. The VGAs are a joke
***just WHAT would make you happy? *** You do know that every single reveal that was made that... were already known games or were shown in such a manner that it's kind of hard to get excited about a reveal trailer that reveals absolutely nothing other than the title of the game. Every single one of them. I'm very happy that the games are coming, but I'm not happy that there wasn't any surprise to it. We were told there would be surprises, I wasn't at all surprised. Having to sit through some of the worst jokes and presentations just made it even worse. This has nothing to do about being a gamer, it's about wanting something that will surprise me when someone says there will be such a thing; or being worth the time I spent sitting there to see the videos shown. It just wasn't worth it, IMHO, and I would have been just as surprised if Sony had published the extended trailer on their own site.
Best announcements were uncharted 3 and elder scrolls 5 everything else was yawn Its why E3 and the tokyo gameshow are so much better @ below you think that vga is actually an award show with all the product placements? LOL, its completely corrupted by corporate sponsers. I think you went full retard. It has more credibility for just announcements which is what they promote and anyone cares about.
Comparing two conferences that base themselves on announcements and the game industry as a whole, against the MTV movie awards for videogames? You went full retard, bro. @Above That's why I said "The MTV movie awards for videogames". They both have something in common: They aren't for movies and videogames, give horrible awards, you get the idea. Why do I have to explain this? I thought I was clear enough.
Uncharted 3 announcement came before already. Best announcements were ME3, elder scrolls 5, and forza 3. Best trailers were uncharted 3 and kratos reveal in mortal kombat
Hot : Uncharted 3 (no shyt!) Not : Every game that wasnt a PS3 exclusive didnt show gameplay footage. Honorable Mentions : Mass Effect 3, Resistance 3 & Arkham City That was personally my biggest letdown from the game reveals, i wanted to see gameplay from more games. I guess that'll have to wait for a real gaming conference
isn't if funny that MS was being critical towards sony a few years ago for not having trailers that showed "real" gameplay. i didn't think the batman trailer was that great.
The VGAs were: 70% Lame Jokes and Celebrities, 20% Advertising (HURR BURGAR KING), 5% Videogames, 5% stupid awards. ...And the Videogames part wasn't worth it that much. I regret watching it, to be honest.
I regret it as much , if not more, than you do. However, I was contemplating, if I were in charge of the VGAs, that I'd have Kevin Butler, Major Nelson and 8 indie teams or representatives co-host together, but every 15 minutes, they next indie development team/rep replaces the other team/rep on stage.
best driving game and all of them have one thing in common they have weapons and explosions. disappointing the media bashes the racing sim but praise mediocre blur and spit second
Lol, have you guys forgotten Mass Effect 3. Don't get me wrong, Uncharted 3 blew the weaves off VGA but the announcements of Mass Effect 3, Resistence 3 and Elder Scrolls 5 was just as big. The fact that all these games are coming to PS3 means its going to be a damn good year 2011.
it was more like sony's night. a whole lot of multiplats and a couple of big ps3 exclusives.
"The next big reveal was Prototype 2. The first game had a lot of promise, most of which was fulfilled in the PS3 version. Disappointingly, the Xbox 360 version was crap, never letting the fledgling Activision IP take off." Are they talking about sales here? "The big mystery on everyone’s mind was where did the big Gears of War 3 gameplay demo go? Bleszinski commented via Twitter that this delay wasn't up to Epic. I guess Microsoft has some explaining to do. " WTF i thought they would show some more footage at VGA. Plus didnt they say before that the game would release early next year and that devolopment was almost complete? Then they delayed the game to the holidays. Why did they do this?
Period that game was repetitive as hell.
The hot: Uncharted 3 Forza 4 Mass Effect 3 elder scrolls 5 The not: The VGAs The stream quality The nice, but need to see more: Prototype 2 Insane (2013 release was lol!)
Forza 4(the win) Mass Effect 3, elder scrolls 5. Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Prototype 3, Batman Arkham City. . . inSANE. What is wrong with this picture? Where are the new IP's at???
Frankly if all I'm going to get is Naughty Bear and Darksiders.. I'd rather stick with Batman and The Elder Scrolls.
I was half paying attention to the show myself just listened up when I thought a new trailer was coming. The trailers themselves were nice everything else was just horrible
Best trailers were Uncharted 3,Resistance 2 and Mass Effect 3(Cg only but umpressive). Forza was CG,as was Batman but both were ok.Elder scrolls didn't show anything,I expected more. Prototype is meh compared to Infamous and Infamous 2 will be the bar raiser this time too. Tonight we have more PS3 stuff shown.
I Was Expecting Saints Row 3 But They Were A No Show Which Was Disappointing But Forza 4 Has Made Me Happy
is in devolpment THQ have already confirmed that. i think with all the games coming out in late 2011 expect SR3 to fall in Q1 2012 with agent,ff13 versus and hopefully starhawk. also SR3 should come out soon people are starting to get that GTA itch again lol and i fully believe we will see GTA in 2012 along with agent. rockstar North is a big enough devolper to handle 2 AAA games
Uncharted 3 GOTY 2011------- Forza 4 will still be behind GT5 in every way!!!! wait im just gonna press rewind!!!!
I hate you PS fanboys and your stupid statements. "Oh look Forza has rewind, it's not a real simulator..." Well if you don't like the rewind option you don't have to use it. I didn't use it and look I got to play a better game than GT5! Can you believe it?? A better game than GT5?? @Below, are you a little bit special? Americans write their date differently.
These guys are retarded. The release date for UC3 isn't 11/1/11 it's 1/11/11. How was the trailer a let down? It showed us some amazing gameplay footage.
For your information, Americans writes in Month/Day/Year Far East writes in Year/Day/Month almost rest of world writes in Day/Month/Year
btw, on EU Blog, admin said that its "autumn 2011" atm because they do not know the exact date yet. so dont be too disappointed that it will not come on 1st Nov. it probably will be released few days later, just like UC2
It's different for American, or do they have to spell 1 November 2011 to you since 11 January is next month?
The mass effect trailer was good , Uncharted idk it was ok
I'm probably gonna get disagrees too, but I have to agree with this guy. What WAS there to be excited about. It looked pretty, of course, but there were about five seconds of gameplay. I am eager to see how you survive that plane crash, much like the train sequence in UC2. But I don't have any reason to think it'll be as good as the first two games. UC1 starts on a boat, UC2 on a train, and UC3 on a plane. At this rate, UC4 is gonna have to take place in space.
Yea I mean it looks good no denying but The second one looked good as well so im not exactly blown away or anything
Resistance 3 will be another let down.
No GTA? Boo.
I Cant Wait For GTA V, Hopefully Saints Row 3 & La Noire Will Keep Me Occupied
People kill me with all this forza talk GT5 is already at 3million it took forza 3 a year to hit that mark!!!! Im sorry but forza will never be as big as Gran Turismo!! Fanboys can talk all they want but real gamers know GT5 is a much better game than forza. HEY xbox owners have fun playing forza 4 and gears 3 and??????? Oh i know a bunch of kinect titles!!!!! LOL
I was absolutely stunned at how bush league the VGA awards are. I was embarrassed for the celebrities reading that crap. No wonder nobody takes gaming seriously.
@ belasco i agree. vga show was kiddy and stupid. it was 95% fluff and comercials. if they were to show only game presentation trailers, the show would of been over in 20 minutes..
Does no one at Spike understand the word "awkward"?!?
alots of xbox360 fanboys !! >.<'' !!! it's annoying !!
Wait a DAMN SECOND! There was a best song in a game category, it didn't have to be recent song, and from Black Ops's excellent tracklist with the Stones and Hendrix (at least my friend says they're in there) they go with EMINEM for the nomination?! Hate... hate... hate... also, am I the only person who liked "Compass" in RDR more than "Far away?" Maybe because I was eaten by a cougar before "Far Away" could finish... Jennifer Hale was finally nominated for something. Little less pissed off now...
