Gametrailers: The genre did not falter in 2010, which huge titles delivering legendary experiences, but which game dominated the genre? The GameTrailers Game of the Year Award for Best Action/Adventure is here!
Hell yes, God of War III FTW. Unmatched chaos and action. Just seeing this makes me want to take another run at the mountain.
This means it won't win game of the year now.... its a shame cause GOW3 is my personal game of the year.
It's the insurmountable lack of content. That's why GoWIII can't win GOTY and it should definitely be wrong if it did. After I had Platinum'd it, there was nothing left for me to do! And it only took a few days to accomplish that, unfortunately.
Best action game, yes, best action adventure, no way.
then what game is?
Haven't played Peace Walker, but knowing it's a Metal Gear game I assume it could be better.
but add something to the topic.
No Red Dead Redemption? Heavy Rain? Alan Wake?
you fail to understand my immature humour......
Best graphics, and best action adventure,... should be Game of the year!!!
GoTY 2010 imo. Although it's not my FAVORITE game this year, its the best game I've played..if that makes sense? No other game this year, experience wise, did what God of War III did to me. The game felt short but it was a well paced, solid package with boss fights and set pieces that few devs can say they are able to match or live up to. The games opening cutscene and gameplay sequence, leading into the Poseidon boss fight, really speaks for itself.
GOW3 FTW! This game is brutal , epic and even now when I play the cronos stage my jaw drops. How they pulled that scale with beautiful camera work, still giving you control the entire time and not even a single loading screen or even a slight stutter is beyond me. There was no competition. Although RDR was good I would not like to classify it particularly under action. Adventure yes but it was def not action packed. RDR was more about being laid back and enjoying the view and just the feeling of being in the wild west. I always hated the AB series.
This one was a toss up for me between Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and God of War III. I loved both games equally. I would have not been upset either way. Congorats to God of War III it is well deserved imo.
Win, GOW3 is pure unadulterated gaming sex.
Two God of War games nominated, that just shows how good the series is.. I hope it wins GOTY, it deserves it
For God of War 3 to win out of all those other amazing games is quite an achievement. It may very well be the centerpiece of my holiday gaming weekend, along with Battlefield Bad Company 2, etc. Happy gaming.
Gametrailers got mad respect now they kept it real.
I really liked GOW 3, but i absolutely loved Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow. There was so much more variety in that game, with enemies and locations, than GOW 3, added to that, the story was more detailed. Castlevania: LOS should certainly win action adventure game of the year.
I totally agree with you. Btw, when you write "Best Action Adventure Game is.." and then next to it there is a GOW 3 pic, it's not much of a surprise isn't it?
the pic kinda gave it away...
They often do..lol
I have to say I kind of expected GT to give it to Bayonetta citing it's edge in more available combos etc. I'm glad that gave it to GOW3 though, it was easily my favourite game of 2010 but then again I am a massive GOW fan and now feel fucking terrible that I sold my PSP and haven't played Ghost of Sparta. I think perhaps I'll need to try and pick up a cheap PSP.
they gave it best new ip if my memory is correct
best action game this year castlevania better combat ,better story,longer gameplay,more unlocks god of war 3 is just an scripted animated movie with over gore to please kids . FLAME ME ON PEOPLE
Well said brother, totally agree!
