Disappointed Gamespy didn't give UDF the Best Graphics award. I mean, are they blind or something.

So when the GT review said UDF was easily the best looking game on a console, they were lying.

Obvious GOTY would go to CoD4 or....SMG

CeruleanSky3620d ago

After all the sad little fanboys at gaming sites resigned themselves to the fact that Halo 3 was going to turn out to be a last gen looking graphical turd CoD4 was seized upon as a substitute.

Acknowledging that the PS3 first party games absolutely destroy anything on the gimped 360 graphics hardware would be essentially throwing in their fanboy towels.

InMyOpinion3620d ago

By UDF you mean Crysis, right?

TheIneffableBob3620d ago

It took me a while to figure out that UDF means Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Nevers3620d ago

come on GameSpy... no luv for Cane and Lynch now :D

Cop_Boy3620d ago

uncharted has the best best graphics , believe it or not its a fukin fact

Funky Town_TX3620d ago

that is why so many people purchased it. COD4 has more backgrounds so I would give it to COD4.

MK_Red3620d ago

At least they got the best developer right (IW) but overall disappointing, BioShock should have won more.
