Game of the Year Simply Cannot Exist

The author postulates that there can be no true Game of the Year.

From the article: "Just in the past few months, there has been an epic traffic jam of glorious titles to play and spend money on. I've been sitting on my ass so much that even my chair has started to complain. It squeaks when my butt cheeks clench up in tense, terrorist-fragging moments."

Dissappointing gen. Last gen I had my favorite games that were just godly to me

Grand Theft Auto 3, Final Fantasy X, Silent Hill 2. Badass life changing games.

No such thing this gen, Bioshock? It's a good game but it's not in the league of those games. The characters look toyish in Bioshock. There's a lot of great games but nothing to where I can say these are my absolute cult favorites this generation.

I'm still waiting for "THE" game of this generation

Assassins Creed hahaha.

Halo 3? Rehash from last gen, and it was never one of my personaly favorites anyway.

Ass Effect? I don't think so.

Uncharted? Great but more of the popcorn action flick than a cult favorite.

Call of Duty 4? Please, how many people get put to sleep by that history lesson? Military simulators put me to sleep. I find it more like going to school.

Rockband/Guitar Hero? F*ggy games for idiots who imagine themselves rocking. okay?? But WTF does that have to do with being a gamer?

Of course it can exist.

It simply means no more or no less than any other year. Play what you like. GOTY for you doesn't have to be GOTY for anyone else. Be content (even if it is Barbie's Magical Cowmilking Farm and Hair Salon Extreme).

RadientFlux3822d ago

IMO "Barbie's Magical Cowmilking Farm" is the game of the century

Kholinar3822d ago (Edited 3822d ago )

'Course it is.

The rest would see the light too... if the cows were aliens with prehensile tails and tentacle guns... and the Barbie was a anime-influenced femme-fatale with uber-blade exploding sex pheromones/shotgun wristbands... and the milking was... TOTAL ANNIHILATION!!!!

But they're just blinded by convention.

Hello Kitty Adventure Island is easily THE GOTY. =P

Kholinar3822d ago (Edited 3822d ago )

Whatever... :(

Kate and Ashley's Fab Shopping Epic rules all.

edit: Btw, I didn't push disagree. I'm not quite that silly.

Games that change the way we look at games. Games like Final Fantasy 7 or Resident Evil 2 that started the horror trend.

Last gen it was Grand Theft Auto 3, and Halo.

No such game like that yet this generation. Maybe Gears of War is one, but then it's gonna be a weak generation.

desolationstorm3822d ago

Well maybe some games define a generation but I would say Mario 64 was way more important that RE2. FFVII Id give you that it wasnt the game who started cg movies just well will be the remembered game from that genearation of gaming.

I would also like to say that defining this generation you might have to give a nod towards wii sports simply for what it has accomplished. It will be important and remembered upon years down the road. Not saying its goty or best game ever simply saying for what its done for the industry and gaming is as important as what ffVII did for jap rpgs. mario 64 did for 3d games and GTAIII did for open world inviroments.

Game of the year EXISTS: Super Mario Galaxy. That's all folks.
