The thirst for adventure is as strong as ever, and these are the games that made the grade.
Come on... MGS4 deserves this one...
you know how gametrailers is, i always think they are bias, GOTY will be GTA4. They know if they give GOTY or special awards to xbox games they will lose the ps3 fanbase. And vice versa for ps3 games that is why they are awarding multiplatform games.
I said it before and I'll say it again, Gametrailer has no credibility. Are you surprise that GTA IV is their game of the year? Were Metal Gear Solid 4 a multiplatform it would be game of the year by a landslide. GT is a joke, a bad one.
game trailer suck.. GTA4 didn't deserve this just like the picked Fallout 3 over Persona 4 as best RPG... and Rockband 2 over persona 4 for best PS2 game..
yeah i enjoyed mgs4 as a gaming experience more than gtaIV. like you said they're trying to stay neutral by awarding it to a multiplat title, if theyd given it gears2 ps3 fanboys would cry and if they gave it mgs4 360 faboys would cry. catch 22 for them. but with regards to the site they've lost credibility in alot of peoples eyes already. myself? i just enjoy their HQ videos, nothing else.
That every time a site says something against a ps3 game, or doesn't say what people personally think it's always biased towards xbox? We've heard that argument so many times that Microsoft must own all the video games sites. I would like to know what gaming sites are still reliable according to people that are accusing Microsoft of paying everyone in the business to get favorable reviews. Even ps3 owners don't find the majority games all that good because they're not buying them. I, personally have only two ( socom and moptorstorm ). The ps3 has 21 million sellers while the 360 has 58. witch is more than double, despite the fact that the 360 can be modded, so they're probably loosing a lot of software sales there. I have all 3 consoles, so I'm not a fanboy for either side but I believe that MGS 4 is not for everyone. So before claiming that a site is bias or that Microsoft is buying good review look at sales numbers. Usually sales reflects the quality of a game. But Microsoft is probably buying those also !!! ;) Rejoice, in the most disappointing category no ps3 exclusives were nominated and 2 xbox 360 were!
if you run firefox and no script you can easily see what sites are associated with what sites example cnet that is owned by microsoft
GTA 4? no way. it should have been MGS4.
they didn't give is to mgs4 because its a ps3 exclusive. everyone knows what gametrailers are nowdays They didn't give Persona 4 PS2 game of the year they gave it to RockBand2...how can they say they know a thing about gaming? This site editiors needs to get fired and get new proper one. Site is good only due to user uploaded movies.
sad but very true
Maybe they actually liked another game more than MGS4? It is possible you know...
impossible!!! Everyone's Favorite game MUST be the same game!!
Yes, but it's unlikely... ;)
merry christmas, IM OUT
hahahaha lol the haters....GTAIV was amazing and still one the most played games in XBL, nobody is playing MGO right now, that's why sony never released any PSN stats. Can't wait for the exclusive DLC for xbox 360, with this all GOTY awards for GTAIV and the good publicity, the new episode will break any sales records for DLC. GTAIV is the best game of the year, more than five GOTY awards and the best selling game of the year. The DLC will be amazing. LOL the haters, still getting owned. C'mon keep talking and bashing everyone hahaha that's funny sh** right there.
if you think GTA IV is a good game then you have very very low standards
This guy talks about GTAIV like if this game were an X360 exclusive or something...
well you loved Resistance 2, an avg shooter, so talking about low standards right? and were you one of the people that enjoyed LAIR after the control patch? I love GTAIV, i know is multiplataform but i'm not like the droids, i dont't like or hate a game just because is or isn't an exclusive, just like you, if GTAIV was a PS3 exclusive, you guys will be celebrating a lot hahaha. But something remains exclusive and that is the DLC and i can't wait for it EDIT: i'm glad i have the superior version of the best game of the year, oh well almost the superior version, my PC couldn't handle the PC version, but i prefer the exclusive DLC, i feel sad for you that you can't have it. Don't be fool, buy a xbox 360, i'll buy a PS3 when star wars saga comes in BR.
youre just glad GTA4 won because its the only thing that can stand a chance against ps3 exclusives, because no 360 exclusives can. admit it.
How do you know I even liked Resistance? But Resistance is actually a better FPS then Halo, the best Shooter this year is Crysis: Warhead. Also you do not have an -almost- superior version. the PC Version is vastly superior to console versions. DLC? Who needs DLC when you have MODS, which are the best thing in games.
Dead Space did not get nominated? Why not? It is way better than Prince Of Persia. Dead Space has great atmosphere, and outstanding sound combine to make it one of the best game released this year.
gta4 it deserve it
GTA 4 does not deserve anything GTA 3 san alot better game
what game are you talking about? there is no GTA III san. there's GTA III and GTA: San Andreas. Anyway I haven't heard any valid arguments of why gta IV is a bad game. I hear "it's not fun" or "it's boring." Geez if MGS4 magically was multiplatform the droids would say it's crap and LBP should be GOTY. Very predictable, there are a lot of websites that rate GTAIV higher than MGS4. And they say they are biased or paid off by microsoft. Whatever, the droids can live in their illusions.
a most excellent post! Quit making my PS3 fanatic N4G dorks look so bad.
GTA4... Ah well, pobody's nerfect.
Im with u onomix
GTA IV, seriously. How about the two games that I am still playing MGS4, or LBP. Lame.
for tatoburion to get his a$$ kicked and it put on youtube.
almost dude...i got my a$$ licked by your mom but youtube didn't allow me to upload the video.
the adventure with my cousin Bellic and a massively broken gun and melee combat system... the open city, the radio and the TV: that's what it deserves an award for otherwise it's 4 pussies who wanna play SIMgangsta MGS4 poops on you xb!tches
GTAIV was rubbish, why does it win awards at every site it's a complete joke.
How can you beat that? It's really just preposterous that a seemingly disappointing/good-but-not-gre at game is THE HIGHEST RATED GAME OF ALL TIME.
Highest rated game of all time my arse and R* were caught paying for reviews
I totally agree with Arsenal4Ever. GTA IV was such a disappointment. Sure it was kinda fun to play through the story and then fool around but after a while the only fun thing left to do was spawning choppers, fly really high and jump out. MGS4 is the winner in my opinion. And for those of you saying that Gametrailers isn't biased, did you see the GRID comparison video?
fallout 3 has more action than gta 4 and that is saying something.
Whats with the lube ans tissues tatotiburon ? i didnt see a single XFLOP exclusive game up for nomination in the vid. Boy you must lead a sad life to get so excited over GTA4 winning.
Actually, Ocarina of Time has an average review score of 99/100. It's 10 years old and still more fun than GTAIV. OoT is my Action/Adventure GoTY every year... it's that damn good. (Sorry MGS guys, I never really got into that series, played MGS3 at a friends that's it)
