Unless things become strictly politics like Hollywood then it would win although this years Oscar winners went surprisingly well.

ShinFuYux3929d ago (Edited 3929d ago )

and people now predicting, saying, even betting that this will be the best game of the year. Come on. At least wait until it's out and see if it really is up to those standards!

ICUP3929d ago

MGS4 is the best picture winner so far.
The only game i expect to move ME <-------(ME)this year (emotionally)is MGS4.

... and when i say critics, i mean those 16 sites that went to Nasu Japan and actually played the game.

acetw1n3929d ago

I agree, people need to calm down about GTA 4 . Its a good game but its getting too much hype.

But when M.G.S.4:GOTP drops , it will set the standard as far nextgen movies go.

replikka3929d ago

u damn right that mgs4 will get best picture, cuz its 90% cutscenes lol
