Metacritic rates Batman Arkham City and Elder Scrolls V Skyrim as the ones to look out for, but more often than not the game with the highest score doesn't always get the vote.
Only one of those is actually a nominee for spike GOTY and that's Uncharted 3 and his right is a good games but the 2nd felt better.
I completely and respectfully disagree. The third was my favorite and the improved combat really made it better. Also the stealth missions didn't suck like the one in UC2 where it felt tacked on(the one in the dark with security guards) albeit the guards weren't that much smarter in this one. Although they are both better than 98% of games out there. As far as GOTY awards go, I don't give a crap. Great games at the beginning of the year don't have a chance and almost always give way to hype of games at the end of the year(or worse games that have not even been released when they decide who wins it).
There is not a single moment in UC3 that even comes close to the quality of writing seen in UC2 - http://www.youtube.com/watc... I just miss these moments so much in UC3. Hope ND learn from their mistakes and make an amazing game which genuinely beats UC2. UC2 was the much better game IMO and will forever remain one of if not the best game of this generation.
^Shut up, troll. Fyi, stop stating opinion as a fact. On that note, I liked the story in UC3 better as well not to mention I thought it started off so much better. UC2's story didn't start off well to me which is why I put the first over it in terms of story also.
1. Dead Space 2 2. LA Noire 3. Portal 2 4. Forza 4 ...................... Even though Xenoblade more than deserves the award, it will probably be ignored by most people................... So the real competition lies between: 1. Skyrim 2. Arkham City 3. Skyward Sword
Haven't played Uncharted 3, but I'm willing to bet it deserves GOTY consideration, and I KNOW that Gears of Mother F'N' War 3 deserves it. But my game of the year, despite a few bugs, is of coure, Skyrim. When an Elder Scrolls game comes out, everything else is second. I can't wait to see what a next gen Elder Scrolls game will be like!
whoever says Uncharted 2 is better than Uncharted 3 must be on some powerful crystal meth. Not only were the grafix an improvement, but so were the animation, the level design, the action, the feeling of accomplishment, the urge to replay the campaign again, the multiplayer. Uncharted 3 is going to win GOTY on many sites and win many awards. I could care less who spike gives game of the year to. what the hell is a spike tv video game awards show anyway? its so predictable that I can name who they will give it to. Batman Arkham City. I'm not taking anything away from the game by the way. from all the games I played this year, Uncharted 3 is hands down the best. Now please disagree away. Also, just an FYI, its another trash article from the msxbox site. lol. dont even bother reading it. basically they said that these following games shouldnt win game of the year: MW3, UC3, gears 3, Zelda, minecraft. Yea lets add gears 3 and minecraft so that we can downplay UC and Zelda. so amateurish, its LOL worthy!
UC2 seemed better to a lot of people and part of that was that we'd never seen a game of that level of quality and polish before. UC3 would have had to have been miles ahead of UC2 to have the same impact, and that's asking quite a lot.
But for many, including myself, Uncharted 3 WAS miles ahead of Uncharted 2. Just because a sequel is "better" than a predecessor, doesn't always mean a higher Meta anyway. I mean, would most people argue that Gears of War 2 is better than 3, probably not.
Its the same KZ2 was better than 3 BS some fanboys came with. KZ3 is better than 2 and U3 is better than 2 no matter the score. Theres always something to complain... you cant pleased a whore!!!
Uncharted 3 divided fans ..many think its a good game others feel like it took a step back. I for one prefer Among thieves but each to their own opinion
Both UC3 and KZ3 improved in many areas over their predecessors, but I can't think of any area in which the improvement was a huge leap. I for one preferred KZ2 over KZ3 because I liked the dark gritty feel of war as portrayed in KZ2. But that is entirely subjective and has nothing to do with the quality of either game.
Can someone please explain to me why msxbox-world is telling us that Uncharted 3 does not deserve GOTY. The same guys responsible for "why you should buy gears of war 3 over Uncharted 3" Remember that fiasco? Batman, Skyrim, Uncharted, Portal all have an equal chance. I feel Skyrim will win even though it is broken as hell on PS3, but my vote will go to Uncharted. It was simply the best experience I had playing a game this year
Skyrim Batman AC Portal 2 Zelda Skyward Sword Main competitors for GOTY however there are alot of runners up for game of the week when they came out. Bronze awards such as Uncharted 3 Gears Of War 3 Little Big Planet 2 and so on.
This is just an opinion. No need to get mad
thats true, i just like this comment about Minecraft "or delve beneath the surface (and the critics) you'll find a game which gets old fast"
Minecraft sort of died for me after the adventure update. I mean hunger?! I thought that would be interesting, when actually it just made the game worse. ¬¬
"Minecraft encompasses everything that is right and wrong about gaming today" Somebody doesn't get it lol.
Arkham city doesnt deserve goty it does nothing new it does almost nothing better then the first game. The story is worse the boss battles are worse the stealth is still shit and combat is still lackluster the only thing they did better was semi open world. AA is the better game and AC is overrated. Also lol witcher 2 dont make me laugh the combat is so shitty.
The Witcher 2 kicked your ass huh? Don't worry bro. There's an Easy mode for people like you :3
Im with you on this one... ARKHAM CITY is by far the most overrated game this year... next to Gears 3 and MW3...
but for $28 who gives a flying foot.
Deus Ex HR is my GOTY so far. Still have to play Skyrim after exams are over.
"little progression, some refinements, and added 3D support" is apparently all UC3 has over UC2. Oh, wait, it's msxbox-world.com. Carry on.
If you hadn't noticed they included gears of war there too. And Uncharted 3s sand levels threw me off don't assume that it's a Xbox like website is why Uncharted 3 should be. Personally gears of war deserves a spot alongside uncharted and both shouldn't get it.
I'm sorry, but I disagree, as far as what games should and shouldn't be considered for game of the year. That aside, my comment was strictly referring to what they thought had changed since UC2. In fact, that's all I said, and I stand by that: they marginalized many of the things UC3 did, or rather, they refused to acknowledge them at all. I think that's important to note, since this is a discussion about a title being worthy of Game of the Year. Even more important, or, perhaps, more telling, is that it is a site that caters specifically- if not exclusively- to a 360 crowd.
Yeah that is up to the people to decide. No one really cares who you think DESERVES or doesn't deserve GOTY. In the end your single opinion won't matter. If more people think UC3 deserved GOTY it will be GOTY. Besides, many people didn't think UC2 deserved anything either and now suddenly UC2 was better and UC3 doesn't deserve it now? That shows how much people's opinions are worth.
Many people didn't think uncharted 2 deserved anything? If I remember everyone was amazed by it but thought that it would have lost to MW2 because of the popular multiplayer. Don't recall people claiming uncharted 2 didn't deserve to be nominated. FORGET all the perfect scores it got ? It's easy to say it deserved it but the question was will people support it over COD when if came to voting and eventually they did
GOTY awards are deceiving because most games that come out early in the year get the shaft. Moreover, most PC games get passed over because its the PC platform.
For me, picking a Game of the Year this year would be a tough decision, but I think Skyrim would take it, because despite many flaws and glitches no other game has drawn me in as much. Portal 2 would come in at a well deserved second on my list thanks to some fantastic writing and highly enjoyable gameplay.
Skyrim is GOTY
Top 10 articles that shouldn't be approved
Uncharted 3 was good, but I couldn't help but feel that something was missing. Anyone else feel the same?
Top contenders for GOTY. Portal 2, Arkham City, Uncharted 3 and Skyrim.
Again EVERYBODY has their opinion. Respect theirs and they will respect yours. The following are all GOTY worthy... Skyrim Witcher 2 Demon's Soul Forza 4 Batman Gears 3 Motorstorm Apocalypse. Portal 2 UC3 BF3 Mortal Kombat Dead Space 2 LA Noire Which will win? I'll say Skyrim. It's such a gaming experience. But I played them all and enjoyed them all. Who wins what award will not change my mind.
