Did it say Halo 3 GOTY on Xbox 360 AND PS3?

That can't be right

La Chance3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

Halo 3 wasnt the game of the year when it comes to quality but it was the game of the decade in everything else.Myabe thats why they put it anyway.

In France we even got Master Chief...yes , Im not joking Master Chief (well some one in a master chief suit) to present the weather forecast... (one of the most watched programs)

Thats how crazy it was...

It should recieve some kind of ?

sonarus3726d ago

Yea halo 3 game of the decade because french weather forecast says so

La Chance3726d ago

name me one game that had the same commercial impact as halo 3?

And Im not even a Halo lover...

sonarus3726d ago

Name on game that had as much money poured into marketing and advertising like Halo 3?. Msoft overhyped the hell out of that game but that doesn't make it the game of the decade. A month later COD4 came out and despite selling less than Halo 3 on 360 still managed to take the top spot for most played on live for almost a yr.

Lets have a big hand for the game of the decade

jwatt3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

I'm a Sony fan but I have to say Halo is one of my most favorite games So I can't argue with that. I would give it to MGS4 for single player and Halo for the online. I know how big Halo is and for MGS4 to go 40 votes shy of Halo even with smaller sales I think that's good. You also can't leave out COD4 but I think what this really came down to was console exclusive and it would have been hard for a multiplatform game to get game of the year.

Harry1903726d ago

Easy. Gran Turismo sells better than Halo. Just facts.

silverchode3726d ago

grand turismo=50mill halo=20mill.

Kaneda3726d ago

I thought COD4 would win easily! Best story.. best game play... best online.. Wow, I am shocked! I think Infinity Ward got screw on this one... RECOUNT please!

MikeGdaGod3726d ago

there's no way this game should have beaten MGS4 or CoD4

i don't care about any of the other awards, this is total bs

Adamalicious3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

This is an abomination. I voted MGS4 but I would have been happy with anything but Halo 3 (or Brawl, seriously WTC? Clearly appeasing the fanboys). I played all of them and Halo 3 was the only one that I found disappointing.

bpac1234567893726d ago

CALL ME CRAZY but i really (no seriously) cant understand how you can have a game of the year, 3/4 of the way into a year. YOUR NOT CONSIDERING THE OTHER GREAT GAMES that will be coming like, resistance 2, FALLOUT 3, LITTLE BIG PLANET, and gears of war 2. Those games "might not have won game of the year but a couple of them would have definitely received a nomination.

ALSO: WOW!! that was close halo 3 won by 40 votes! IN ALL HONESTY IT THINK MGS4 SHOULD HAVE WON. it had better GRAPHICS, SOUND, story (debatable if your new to metal gear, on second thought scratch that even someone new cant deny mgs4's superior story), gameplay (also debatable if your new), diversity (not debatable), and an overall unmatched POLISH (absolutely not debatable).

but its still interesting that mgs4 came within 40 votes when theres 4 million people who own mgs4 and 9 million that own halo 3.

SaiyanFury3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

I can't speak about online play because I don't play games online. But I have played Bioshock, COD4, MGS4, but have never played HALO. I've watched my friends play it and I can't see anything I'm overly impressed with. The online is good, but so is the original Resistance with it's large capacity online player count. It seems to me HALO was hyped beyond it's real strengths. I play a game for it's single player experience. In that capacity, I say MGS4 had the most superior experience. It had the best story and gameplay of any single player game available on any platform. Online GOTY may belong to COD4 or HALO, but as a single player game, MGS4 takes the cake. It has a complicated storyline, no denial there, and it takes an almost 3 dimensional mind to wrap your brain around the complex Metal Gear universe. But that is why Konami provided PS3 users the FREE MGS Database which explains the MGS universe/timeline/character relations/everything else. Also it seems MG Online has also received positive reviews. Regarding every aspect of MGS4, including the positive online support by Konami, it wins '08 game of the year from me. And additional kudos to Konami for the free MGS database explaining EVERYTHING in the MG universe.

Nope. Bioshock, COD4, MGS4, and GTA4 are all better then that overrated pile of crap.

solidt123726d ago

Agreed all the other games were better but I am surprised that Metal Gear Solid 4(my favorite franchise of all) came in second by only 40 votes. I am amazed because Halo 3 has sold so much more and MGS4 came in second. It makes me feel good that people are appreciating MGS4 so much. To me MGS 4 is my game of the year followed by Bioshock and Call of Duty 4 and GTA 4.

Adamalicious3726d ago

MGS4 is 100 times the game Halo 3 is. No matter how much money is dumped into marketing Halo it's not going to change that.

bpac1234567893726d ago

i wouldn't call halo 3 crap but its definitely not game of the year. it should have received an honorable mention at best. Halo 3 is a good game but there isn't enough new and exciting features to it. its a polish of halo 2 and therefore has a lack of inovation, its just slightly improving on a successfull formula.


dktxx23726d ago

Your right its not crap but its not that great either. For a game that was in development 2-3 years you'd think it would have been better than what it came out to be though. It really feels like Halo 2 with some graphic polish. And for a game with "Finish the Fight" as a slogan, the campaign itself was pretty meh. Not bad, but it could have left a bigger impact. One the other hand, MGS4's story was powerful, emotional, and overall excellent (although maybe a bit confusing, but we have brains). Act 4 is what really amazed me. , have never played a metal gear game other than MGS3. I didn't know the story behind Shadow Moses. But when I got to the heliport in act 4, I knew that it was a powerful moment. It was one of those unique feelings that you get while playing a game that you know you will remember for a long time, and that you won't get for a long time. I can only imagine what a lifelong fan of the series must of felt. Halo 3 didn't have that, or anything close. That's why MGS4 is not only GOTY, but maybe the best game ever.

RawPowah3726d ago

Halo 3 isn't exactly a game that is pushing the 360

mboojigga3726d ago

It wasn't required too. It was designed to be fun which is the most important feature in a game.

Thoas3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

I didn't know a add on could win game of the year, Very strange indeed.

mboojigga3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

If you believe that then actually your comment is an insult to games like MGS4 if it couldn't even beat it by the peoples choice. I agree then very strange indeed.

PoorDroids3726d ago

lmao. wow. you literally owned every droid on this page. you are my new god.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3726d ago

8 million sold for this "add on" does the PS3 have anything that sold 8 million, how about 5.... Hmmmm?

pwnsause3726d ago

"8 million sold for this "add on" does the PS3 have anything that sold 8 million, how about 5.... Hmmmm?"

well if you make Halo3 sweatshirts and Halo 3 Mountain Dew Drinks, and Halo 3 underwear, of course the game is going to sell. Hype sells games. 8 million people brought the game and half of the 8 million are playing it right now, cause the other half saw it as a disapointment.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

Hmmm... have seen many ads on TV, in the sunday paper, magazines from Stuff, FHM, Gamepro, EGM, cardboard cutouts at Blockbuster and various game shops, and a PS3 bundle about MGS4. It's has only sold 2 million, whats your excuse for that one?

<--- walks away whistling the tune in the video below....:)

pwnsause3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

lol you are showing me a video about me getting owned, the same video that I showed to you with your name embedded on it instead of "you". Talk about originality, is that what you do? man, you should get a job with Microsoft, they can definately take you in and rip other people off.

you are ignoring the fact that Halo 3 has had more advertising than a Mike Tyson fight. and trust me, i live in NYC, a city of 8,000,000 citizens (basically people in NYC are always targeted for ads) and those ads are all over the city. not to mention a Mountain Dew Drink for Halo 3. stop the spinning Jason. at least be proud that Microsoft did this to get 8 million people to buy Halo 3.

Heck that sh*t was advertised as Fu*k on campuses such as NYU and Columbia University, Hell, i went back to Buffalo and I see more of the same on campus + an An Xbox 360 tour bus stopping by the University at Buffalo(the college were Im that I attend) equipped with Xbox 360s running with the Halo 3 Beta, Plus a Huge ad at the student Union just for Halo.

lol and you are telling me that MGS4 got hyped the same way as halo, you're dumb.

Here is something better than that video you showed me, except that this is so you can get you're brains scrambled even more of spins:


you are obviously not going to walk away since you like problems.

Edit: how many times are you going to change your avatar

First, you had an avatar displaying Flames, possibly showing what your RROD machine can do, and I believe it because it actually burns down houses, now you are changing to too human avatars, which is possibly going to flop bad. whats the next avatar you are going to display this time?

Jackthepwnsaur3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

Spam for whistling while being a F*ggot :) minus a bubble too.

pwnsause3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

lol he cant say anything, he obviously knows that he cant say anything else. he has a smallbrain, he talks out of his a** without thinking what he is supposed to say. so all he does is whistle out of his A**hole, since that the only think he can do. what a fa**ot.

Funny how he has a too human avatar, must be PP's brother, they love flops.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3726d ago

<---whistling 8 million GOTY... la la la... ^^^ pwned again la la la... PS3's biggest game Motorstorm 3 million and it's a packaged game... la la la... What ever happened to judgment day? la la la... but... but... but... teh cell... la la la...:)

You droids are like brain eaters, starving to death trying to eat your own brain. Olympics comming up Droids, break out those bronze medals and start shining them up...XD

bpac1234567893726d ago

@ mboojigga

Mgs4 lost by 40 votes. 40 votes! there are 5million more halo owners than mgs4 owners the fact that mgs4 came so close with so fewer followers shows that it is more preffered. it can be argued that its the peoples choice, which it is, but with 5million more people its not fair competition. if mgs4 had 9million owners do you really think it would have lost to Halo BE HONEST.

Oner3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

There are down right childish immature little b!tches on here now. Seriously. How do you not feel embarrassed & ashamed when people here actually feel sorry for your sad pathetic acts? FFS. You tout Halo 3 as the be all end all of anything ever? Way to be a not be able to appreciate anything else on another system that HAS GREAT GAMES. You REALLY must be 10 years old, there is no other explanation for your behavior and if so I appologize.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3726d ago

Welcome to the open zone, ether go back to the gamer zone, join in the open zone fun, or shut the f**k up.

Oner3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

Awww the little baby throwing a temper tantrum & stomping his feet in a rage because he didn't get his way and got put in his place. Seriously, don't say anything more as you have nothing to say that will change the FACTS of your immaturity and inability to hold a proper conversation.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3726d ago

^^^ refer to comment 1.6 ^^^

Make sure you shine that 3rd place bronze medal real good now. Whats this! another GOTY award for a Halo game? that gold medal sure looks shiny. Oh my bad, I'm being insensitive... lets put your 3rd place medal on the fridge, because your special to. Don't feel to bad, look on the bright side, nowadays they give everyone ribbons just for showing up...XD

You lack pwning skills, I suggest you get a 360, go on Live and get some skills. That way you won't be such a p**sy and get ass hurt in the open zone.

Oner3726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

Unlike you I can afford anything I want and not be biased (check my proof in the picture link below)....your immaturity and ignorance is astounding. You are really sad.

It looks like I have the last word on this too (unless you are a coward and need another account)...oh and um you are the only one that truly got Owned here. Your own words/actions prove it! How does it feel that you just helped to prove me right?

KBDuB3726d ago

LMAO at your disagrees.

Just goes to show that people don't play games for fun anymore..

by 40 votes. very close call. Ah well,it's not MY game of the year. Guess there are more Halo than MGS fans that watch X-Play.

Breakfast3726d ago

More Halo fans then MGS fans, in general.

Statix3726d ago

There are also more stupid people in the world than there are smart ones.

N4M3L3553726d ago (Edited 3726d ago )

A sad fact of life, my friend.

Tarasque3726d ago

Actually there is about 5 more million halo fans than MGS4 fans.
