EDGE magazine's winners for "Best Game" (of 2010), "Best Audio/Visual Design," "Best Hardware," "Best Developer/Publisher," and more.
Meh at least Red Dead picked up some awards.
I find it difficult to believe Super Mario Galaxy 2 hasn't received more Game of the Year recognition. It's the highest rated game this year and along with it's predecessor, the highest rated game this gen. It's like the core gaming press has decided to no longer acknowledge the Wii as a gaming console. Kudos for Edge for the nod to a great game.
I still haven't finished SMG2. I loved 1 and finished it completely. But 2 feels too same-y so far. It's like 1 never happened. I know Mario games aren't made for story but I don't feel it's as good as 1. And the hub world, that purple star thing and general same-y-ness just didn't rub me the right way. Made me not want to finish the levels cause I'd have to go through all the annoying stuff. Very* good game in terms of level design and fun but bogged down by annoying stuff.
I agree SMG2 is for real gamers. Awesome gameplay. Where its shuts the fanboys who argue about games with great graphics but are medicore in gameplay.
Don't compare wii scores with next gens scores... cod has 9 on wii, and it's just a joke for a real gamer.
Congrats to SMG2! Well deserved! :) @Stan Lee..Destructoid and Gamereactor awarded SMG2 GOTY, as well as ONM. :)
Nice to see that Platinum Games won best developer. Vanquish and Bayonetta are my two favorite games of the year.
I'm glad Minecraft won best indie. It is amazing.
EDGE, at least one magazine i respect.
That sucks. They are probably the worst reviewer of all time.
haha I'm saying EDGE in Brazil, not in the the US People are disagreeing but they probably never been on Brazil and never read the EDGE from here ¬¬
Edge is a British publication and the Brazilian copy mostly includes articles translated from the UK magazine. There is no US copy unless imported.
god of war 3 single player and starcraft 2 multiplayer goty for me!!!
Edge is a joke. coming soon, top 10 reasons Edge is a joke. but first I gotta walk the dog.
"Edge is a joke" Why is that little man? Because they gave KZ2 and Gt5 only a 7 out of 10? Need lotion for that butthurt? Edge is a superb publication that are very fair with their reviews and dont buy into the hype BS that comes with games like KZ and GT. Their word is almost gospel within the gaming world, its just Sony fan N4g users that dont like them. Google vaseline butthurt bum lube if you need help.
edge is a beautifully produced magazine with many interesting articles but it can't be denied that they have treated the ps3 differently at least with the scores, but we are all used to this now and have learnt to add a point or two.
No they don't, The only games they do actually give a bit higher scores are the british ones. All those fanboy blogs with ludicrous stats and ironically biased analysis are sickening. It's some people who are looking way too much into it, to the point of being paranoid. Edge are being harsh and they use the whole spectrum of scores, which leads to whiny zealots and conspiracy theories.
Terror b and others stupid fanboyz, like some biased mags, because they downplay the best games.. pathetic :)
Hey terror_Barbie, I googled "Vaseline butthurt burn lube" and teh #1 pick was http://www.okcupid.com/foru... now Terror_baby ...2 things come up...1. I don't think any of those people on there ever had sex before, and 2. are you one of them? lol I mean why else would you send me to OKcupid.... hey lets look at a few of your last posts "LOL, Kinect sports sold more than GT5, Sony must be ashamed." "Sublime? No chance. Well at least maybe it is for N4G users. GT5 is so bland i found it hard to stay awake so i decided to sell it and went back to playing the best racing game this gen and maybe of all time, Forza 3." "The Xbox 360 is without doubt, the best console this gen. Thank you MS" Terror_bird whos really the fanboy? lol and uhm you've just been added to the "____ is a joke" list congratz ;D
@thehardware LOL did you seriously use one of your alt accounts to agree with your own last statement!?!?!? You are such a loser!
"Their word is almost gospel within the gaming world" the sheer stupidity in that statement is beyond human belief lol well done Terror_B you've outdone yourself this time for sure.
ME2 won none of the awards.Is it a joke???And sega on best publisher top 3.You gotta be kiddin' me.Their bads far outweighs their goods.
Sega = Bayonetta (Best New IP of the Year) and 1 of my personal GOTY- Vanquish ( Great 3rd person shooter that does a lot of cool things another great New IP) - Resonance of Fate ( a cult hit that blends turn based, strategy, and action all into 1 great package, reviewers dismissed it cause it was really difficult to play) I think the good out weighs the bad easily!
SEGA publishes Platinum Games' titles plus games like Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles. They don't just publish crappy Sonic games; just look at their library of games. Vanquish, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Bayonetta, and Yakuza 3 (and more in Japan) all came from SEGA this year.
The only one i disagree with is best visual design. If by that they mean graphics than God of War 3 beats Red Dead Hands down. The art in God of War 3 was better than in Red Dead. But if they mean enviroment than Red Dead does a better job than God of War 3 (but thats because its meant 2 its an open world game)
That is officially the worst list so far, typical EDGE trash. Props for SMG2 though, quality.
Wow, it's the worst award list i've ever seen.... i agree only about SMG2, it deserves it.
Starcraft 2 and Minecraft are amazing games. Good choice there. Edit: HAHA and iPhone destroys both Kinect and Move as best hardware, even though it's almost 4 years old.
Wheres gt5? :P
