Game of the Year: No Uncharted but they included Mass Effect , Halo 3 and Assassins Creed..?

Most Original Game: Portal

Best Gameplay Innovation:COD4...everything was done for you in Assassins Creed when it came to climbing and jumping..too easily executed

Best Multiplayer Game: No Warhawk..ehh..?

Best Action/Adventure Game: GOW2

Best Shooter:COD4

Best New Character: no Nathan Drake..so King Bohan

Best Animation:Uncharted

I skipped on the others because either I haven't played those games..or it doesn't interest me..!

ktchong3331d ago

Seriously, it's a good game, but no one outside the PS3 fanboys community think of it as particularly remarkable or innovative.

Violater3331d ago

which is why after i showed my buddy who already owns a 360 an uncharted video he finally bought a PS3 as well.
Wow your right

no

Danja3331d ago (Edited 3331d ago )

UMM how about you stick to just posting news..and not commenting..?

so Halo 3 wasn't overhyped..?? and wasn't it a dissapointment with nothing remarkable/innovative about it just a rehash of Halo 2 with shinny cartoony graphics..?

Mass Effect and Assassins Creed was also over hyped and failed to deliver and is also riddled with glitches..dumb A.I..and what not but they get nominated..hmm....

lonestarmt3331d ago

I know! warhawk and uncharted totally got screwed. the best RPG section is a joke. Only mass effect and final fantasy advance VI belong there, but I forgot unless its a jap rpg with final fantasy in it, it doesn't exist for some people. sigh...

ktchong3331d ago

You don't get to censor me.

What are you gonna do about it?

What CAN you do about it?

Nothing. Nada.

Irving3331d ago

Wow xbot talking about overhyped games, what an irony !!

WOW!....This list is SOOOOO biased!!

Uncharted got $hafted by X-Play, aka XBOT universe....AHAHAHHAHA

Who gives a crap what the BABOON XBOTS think. They can continue spreading their propaganda all year long. In the end we'll have the last laugh cause they'll all just look like dumb asses in the eyes of the world.

Biased list.

lonestarmt3331d ago

I don't agree with most of this, they should have called this how many awards can we give halo 3, bioshock, mass effect, and call of duty 4 awards. geez jap games get scrubbed again :(

iNcRiMiNaTi3331d ago

dunno if youv seen some of the reviews but theyr not really big fans of japanese rpgs games. they bomb every anime related game, and they make fun of how characters look in alot of japanese rpgs. the ones that usually wont get bombed are games like metal gear solid, resident evil, and devil may cry

ktchong3331d ago (Edited 3331d ago )

.

The Japs are snubbing Western games as well. So it's all fair game.

mighty_douche3331d ago

f*ck me, your dad at pearl harbor or something?

P4KY B3331d ago

Jap games are not where its at this year.
Next year there will be more with GT5, MGS and FF (although i personally think JRPGs are a big pile of steaming turn based fighting by numbers sh!t)

MGS will be big.
But its GT5 that i think will take the lion share of awards next year.

lonestarmt3331d ago (Edited 3331d ago )

oh yeah, I forgot how x-play review games. Thanks for reminding me why I stopped giving a crap on what they think of video games. lol
