Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb present the award for Game of the Year for G-Phoria 2008.
Did it say Halo 3 GOTY on Xbox 360 AND PS3? That can't be right
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 reward...no ?
Yea halo 3 game of the decade because french weather forecast says so
name me one game that had the same commercial impact as halo 3? And Im not even a Halo lover...
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
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.
Easy. Gran Turismo sells better than Halo. Just facts.
grand turismo=50mill halo=20mill.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. REAL GAMERS KNOW THAT THE GAME OF THE YEAR GOES TO MGS4 I DON'T CARE IF I GET DISAGREES, THIS IS MY STRONG OPINION.
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.
haters owned........but teh cell
Halo 3 isn't exactly a game that is pushing the 360
It wasn't required too. It was designed to be fun which is the most important feature in a game.
I didn't know a add on could win game of the year, Very strange indeed.
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.
lmao. wow. you literally owned every droid on this page. you are my new god.
8 million sold for this "add on" does the PS3 have anything that sold 8 million, how about 5.... Hmmmm?
"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.
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....:)
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: http://www.jason360.doyouha... 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?
<--- whistling ^^^ pwned :)
Spam for whistling while being a F*ggot :) minus a bubble too.
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.
<---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
@ 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.
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 gamer...to 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.
Welcome to the open zone, ether go back to the gamer zone, join in the open zone fun, or shut the f**k up.
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.
^^^ 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.
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?
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.
More Halo fans then MGS fans, in general.
More != better
There are also more stupid people in the world than there are smart ones.
A sad fact of life, my friend.
Actually there is about 5 more million halo fans than MGS4 fans.
Sad but true.
You would think that after 2300 comments I would know how to work the edit button..
this one is shocking!well people have different opinions and those who voted preferd halo3,if i was to vote i would have voted for mgs4.
Game of the Year 2008 is Halo 3?
Oh wait nevermind.Why did G4 pick such a strange timeline?Game of the year for what year exactly?
Yeah I saw Halo 3 and Bioshock...and I still continue to scratch my head. Didn't those games come out last year?
It just proves the blatant bias of the show. Look at this posted right here on N4G almost 1 year ago http://www.n4g.com/News-931... **2007** Game of the Year Nominees * Mass Effect * Assassin's Creed * BioShock * Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare * Halo 3 <-----2007!!!! * Super Mario Galaxy Way to go X-Play...you guys are sooo unbiased and true to gamers. F'ng Lame.
And, what PS3 games would you have expected to be GOTY at that time? The PS3 didn't have really any candidates for GOTY at that point.
MGS4,GTA4,COD4,Bioshock anything is better than this overrated piece of f ing sh!t!
everyone look at 2.24 so funny,just happen to pause it then
i can't complain, i did not vote.
Halo 3 is very overhyped, and this is the result of all that. A great, but not amazing game(definatly not much of an improvement over the first two) gets GOTY. There are better games on both the 360 and the PS3, and there are amazing GOTY quality games coming out on both systems before the end of the year. If this was done in December or January like it should of had (August? WTF) Halo 3 would not be a nominee. The list would instead probably be MGS4, LBP, Gears 2, Resistance 2, and GTA4 or COD 4. Great GOTY quality games coming out on both systems before the end of the year and they completley ignore these and decide on their GOTY in August. Stupid.
this aint official this is voters choice so for me really MGS4 is the real game of the year
the "real" goty will be between MGS4 and Geow .
Woah? Gears is out already?
All hell will break loose! *Sony Defense Force Activate*
I've always hated Adam Sessler but after this, he needs to DIE!!! Who wants to wager now that next year when they have this voter-choice award again, Halo Wars will take the top award, though just like Halo 3 it totally won't have the quality to warrant such an accolade?
adam had nothing to do with it. dummy. u should have voted
I have to agree with the PS3 fans on this one, I for one am shocked at this outcome, I expected MGS 4 to win, I actually was hoping it did, wow, Halo 3 eh? Wow. :/
I have only a 360 and havent even play MGS4 and i think, MGS4 deserved GOTY. Kojima is brilliant.
hey bud can u please explain to me how that makes any sense. how do u think a game deserves game of the year if you have not played it??? makes no sense. MGS4 is an amazing game though. one of the best single player experiences ever. halo 3 has a far better multiplayer however
i forgot we still live in 2007.
all xbots still live in 2007.
don't worry MGS4 will win movie of the year. ;)
