resistance 2 should be in place of fable 2. im in the beta and u just have to play the coop to know how fun the game is;me writing about it would not help bcuz theres just too much to be said.

Keeps using the phrase Bastard Love Child of but only puts one parent. Bastard Love Child of Gears of War and ... makes Gears 2. Anyone, anyone, Beuler?

Seeing as he's the father of the original doesn't that make for a bit of a straight line family tree? Incest increases the good and the bad traits of a gene set so for this to work Gears 2 has to be more badass and have more glitches. Oh...

I think you're reading too much into it. But hey, I'm sure incest has surprised in the past!

Hmm all seem like fairly legit choices but I would have to say I think MGS 4 is the GOTY if not of all time.

Even though a lot of people didn't seem to like it, I thought GTA IV was very solid and fun so I would say that and Dead Space are making a case for second right now.

Fallout 3 and LBP still have a shot though, we will have to see how that turns out. And even if Gears of War 2 is everything its cracked up to be, I don't see it being GOTY just because it isn't really doing anything revolutionary for the industry. At least these are my impressions at the moment.

Scotracer3673d ago

And those are very fair impressions. If Gears turns out to be a cracking game, I see no reason for it not to be Game of the Year. It might not have the same innovations as LBP brought to the table but if it's a GREAT game, you can't really deny it that honour.

PistolPumptMonk3673d ago (Edited 3673d ago )

Actually if Gears 2 is everything its cracked up to be, it will be an incredibly intense and fun single player and multiplayer third person shooter with great graphics and a so-so story.

< MGS 4

It will have to TRULY break MY expectations to compete with the best.

I certainly can deny it that honor if it is only a GREAT game. GOTY does not mean a game is merely great, while that is impressive, it means it is the greatEST game of the entire year.

I think Fable needs to take the spot of GEARS. GEARS 2 doesn't seem like it's a giant leap ahead of the first. I think Resistance 2 brings a lot more compared to the first. It probably wont sell as much as GEARS, and therefore I think that's why it'll be overlooked even though it'll be just as great. Either way there's plenty of great titles out there to make any gamer happy. So far, my GOTY is MGS4. :)

Where is Resistance 2 in that list?

Surely it'll be a contender for GOTY as well.

Scotracer3673d ago

There are many games that just didn't make the cut. I feel there are too many FPS games on the market to make a single one of them GOTY. Call of Duty: World at War is up there with Resistance (going on the Betas) and I just couldn't seperate them.

gears 2 will get GOTY because fan boys hate it sooo much(maybe because they have no good games to play)
