5 out of the 6 are available on the 360 and 3 of them being exclusives.

What exactly is your point?

COD4 should win it.

marcdz13783d ago

all the people on the X-Play program are Xbot fanboys. Every single show advertises the crapbox and only give negative reviews for the PS3. Did anyone see the one where they announce the worst games, or letdowns of the year. First one up on console bashing Lair, Nintendo, and even the pc games got mentioned. All while there was a big as logo in the back 2007 xbox 360 greates games. They did not mention one bad game for the crapbox it was followed by what games to buy for the xbox 360 this year. What a bunch of tools. X-Play is on the Xbox payroll. It's so freaking obvious its not even funny.

Bioshock should definitely win not sure why Assassins creed is there though.

xplosneer3783d ago

Hm I'm split between Bioshock and COD4(don't say I haven't played it, all my friends have 360's around me) but agreed Assassin's Creed shouldn't be on there. It innovated but wasn't the best.

socomnick3783d ago

I still say bioshock m8 I love the graphics the gameplay and man that was hands down one of the best if not the best story in a videogame.

FCOLitsjustagame3783d ago

I think it will be Bioshock again as its a bit "different" then COD4. COD4 is awesome but is essentially the same as the other CODs just with cooler weapons, cooler graphics, better AI, different story...but its still essentially COD.

Assassins creed is a good game and I think came close to being a great came but they juuuusssttt missed.

Halo3 again is Halo. Halo is great but its still Halo.

Mario Galaxy is Mario. I haven’t played it but from looking at what they showed it’s like the COD4 of Mario, but it’s still essentially Mario.

BTW I think sequels SHOULD maintain that which makes it essentially the same as its predecessors. I was quite happy with Halo and COD4 (it may even be my personal GOTY).

Oops. I forgot about Mass Effect. I can see that as a GOTY but like Assassins it has some chinks in its armor but the story really pulls you in. I have played it twice and will play it at least 2 more times…. And its “different” too so this could perhaps win.

It's amazing how delusional some people can be.

AngryTypingGuy3783d ago

" It's amazing what money can buy

Apparently, it buys better games.

Anyway, who won?

wageslave3783d ago

You pick SMG because its not on the Xbox 360.

Why dont you buy a Xbox 360 and play these games you've built an agenda to propagandize against.

Grow up.

No uncharted, R&C .And some Ps3 adherent worshippers have really being waxing lyrical about these games, We were lead to beleive and telling us how they are the best games on any console. Didnt even make the list.

Hatchetforce3784d ago (Edited 3784d ago )

You must be correct. After all you have played them too. Also let us not forget that critics are 100% correct 150% of the time. What gamers actually like is immaterial since only a TV show knows what really comprises great gaming.

wageslave3783d ago


What? No one says that every reviewer is right all the time. But, YOU are saying that they must all be wrong -- apparently, the COMBINED reviews are wrong wrong wrong in your opinion right?

The COMBINED opinion of reviewers from Metacritic:

Mario Galaxy 9.7 / 10
CoD 4 9.4 / 10
Mass Effect 9.1 / 10
Halo 3 9.4 / 10
Bioshock 9.6 / 10

See that? All have AVERAGE scores above 9.. kind of the "Best of the Year" so to speak right? Get it? There isnt a PS3 exclusive in this catagory.

Here are

Uncharted 8.9 / 10
R&C 8.9 / 10
Resistence 8.6 / 10
Warhawk 8.4 / 10
Motorstorm 8.2 / 10

Get it? Sore that there arent any exclusive PS3 games on that list of Best of The Year? I can understand you'd be upset, the PS3 library *really* is lacking, that is the collective opinion of the entire industry (again, see the average scores above).

But, no one is surprised.

Slayer OP3783d ago


Several of those games got a 8.9 yet you consider them bad. Thats is so stupid considering you never even played them. Seriously there are games out there that dont get 10/10 and are great games.

Reviewers are biased and will review what the people want to see rather then review properly so therefore review score mean nothing because they are people opinions. What matters is how good the game really is.

Hatchetforce3783d ago

Apparently you can read wageslave yet possess not an ounce of deductive ability. Stating that critics are not always right is not even close to saying they are always wrong. There is a vast chasm between those two ideas. That is quite a leap of reasoning and provides no place for you to land except squarely on your ass. Simply put, you are quite wrong.

Were you have actually engaged some sort of comprhension then you would have been able to see that with a modicum of sarcasm I was saying that critics are not always correct nor is a TV show the end all be all of what makes a Game of the Year. Do you know from where the ultimate judgement on that matter comes? With a name like slave, of course you do not. Sheeple rarely do except for blind luck.

The best judge of GOTY comes from the individual gamers themselves. No one knows better what you like than you do. Of course it is obvious you know less than nothing. The next time you decide to invoke your minimal analytical powers, engage the brain housing group first.

Slayer OP3783d ago

they are the most biased reviewers next to gamespot. Dont take them seriously.

MK_Red3783d ago (Edited 3783d ago )

Good list. Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed and BioShock are all that I want to see among main GOTY noms.
UPDATE: God of War 2, COD4, SMG, Uncharted, MP3, Crysis and few others are also great and deserve a nomination at least but those 3 are my top and fave choices.
