Check out the full list (28 categories) of nominees, winners, and losers at the Spike TV video game awards including Game of the Year.
I'll admit I'm pleased that Uncharted 2 won Game of the Year.
Eat that MW2 !!!!
this was well deserved.
good for uc2
Well VGA atleast they aren't a bunch of moneyhats but they did manage to rig it somehow because Uncharted 2 should have won every nomination and somehow it didn't beat Assasins Creed 2 in Action/Adventure. You know full well Nathan Drake traveled more places and there's more action in Uncharted 2.
UC2 FTW. Now watch it sweep the rest of the GOTY awards including the AIAS'
The awards show as a whole was as horrible as they ever were. Why in God's name would you have Stevie Wonder show up? When he said that line about making videogames available to handicap people(if he was referring to blind folks)...I'm sorry but it's just not possible at this point and time. Unless we can bring your vision back through some sort of technology... you are screwed to fully enjoy the gaming experience. That's a fact and I do feel sorry he won't be able to enjoy the GOTY 2009 lol. Where the eff was the big awesome game trailers? Not one trailer shown had me excited. I was really hoping for Resistance 3 or Dead Space 2 trailers... and we got a goose egg. The biggest hyped one was Halo Reach and that still looks more of the same crap. 20 bucks says Reach was planned as an expansion just like ODST, but they managed to save face and call it a full game this time around. Sucks to be Microsoft right now if Reach is their biggest cash cow in 2010. I hope at GDC and E3 they can announce some actual exclusives and not this "also on PC" exclusive crap they keep pulling or exclusive for a few months till PS3 gets it too with more content. Sony is set to murder the competition in 2010 and heck even Nintendo is bringing out some of their bigger guns with Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid the other M, and hopefully Zelda. Microsoft needs more exclusives...end of story.
No to give UC2 the GOTY award would just criminal. Game is very far ahead of competition. UC2 GOTY!!
Well congratulations to the might mighty Naughty Dogs for the GOTY award. Uncharted 2 has single-handedly raised the bar so high, that 2010 may be feel with short comings until U3 in 2011...lol No I think there will be some good games coming.
I wonder if uncharted 2 sales will go up after this?
I'm going to be petty here and wonder how the heck AC2 beat out U2 for adventure game of the year after already winning game of the year? Anyway, I'm very happy to see Naughty Dog earn the accolades it honestly deserves. Please take this as a sign of how happy we gamers are to be able to play your games and that we hope you always work to put out games of the highest caliber.
I'm shocked at how Jack Black won over Nolan North for best voice acting. That was a complete spike TV BS rigging.
Mark Hamil has always impressed me as the Joker. It is a *great* performance. Jack Black winning was expected but kind of sad since he didn't really "perform" for his role of 'a guy like himself with his voice'. Also irks me a bit that GTA Chinatown Wars beat out Scribblenauts. But hey, it's a fine game too.
2009 is the first year I actually agree 100% with Spike and their choices of winners.
Killzone 2 should've won!
It seems like Spike wanted to spread the awards around so one game didn't dominate. I agree on Uncharted as GOTY, but Nolan North should have won best Male Voice. Jack Black's opening was horribly lame and once I saw that I knew the awards would spread around.
Uncharted 2 deserve all the praise possible, Absolutely Amazing Game
they chose SF4 over blazeblue. What were they smoking?
wow im glad uncharted won ..im happy 4 sony... n naughty dog..i was sooooo caught off guard thought it wudve been cod mw sorry 2 b cliche but i wanna do it before nebody else does.... "it only does game of the year" lol
"It Only Does Game of the Year" lol i like that.
Why do you have my avatar? take it off!!!!
umm i had dis on 4 a while now....go change urs if ur soo sad
Uncharted 2 yo
Sony must have paid them heavily.
With what money? Sony just lost 4 billion on PS3 development.
Then why didn't they win the other awards? Steven, Sony doesn't have only 4 billion dollars.
lol you think they care about this lame @ss awards show for the awards?
Like MS payed 50 million for DLC? Because they suck so they have to bribe a good studio to make stuff? No, Sony got their own studio to make an amazing game, they didnt need to bribe anyone
"With what money? Sony just lost 4 billion on PS3 development" Not only PS3 development many more things what you don't know ;) and it's 5 Billion loss from development and not 4 Billion;) Second, Sony has more than 75 Billion :)
You can just pick out the user names that are mad.... lol. Hate more, hate more.
how's your ass feeling xb!tches? PS1: call 1 800 COLLECTEARS PS2: jason360 and the xbutt-hurt-brigade: "what is uncharted2?" the rest of the world: "it's GOTY 2009 morons!" PS3: most anticipated game for 2010: GOW3 ouch again!
I wish you could get paid to STFU!! :)
"When will thou realise that the only superiority worth naturally ascertaining is that which cometh on the PS3?" (A quote by an enigmatic great Sony philosopher of legendary status) ~PLAY B3YOND~
Uncharted Fckin 2! _O_
Lol at first I was like oh god, AC2 wins adventure DA wins RPG and MW2 wins shooter. Its a popularity contest and they give it only to Multi Plats. But then they earn back a shred of respect by giving their largest award to UC2.
It felt like they rigged the show and didn't want to show one game/platform favoratism. Uncharted 2 should have won more awards, especially Best Action-Adventure of 2009. I mean while Assassins Creed 2 is a great game it still wasn't as good as Uncharted 2. I think Naughty Dog should have also won studio of the year. I agree with Dragon Age winning RPG of the year that game is just bad ass. Demon Souls is awesome, but DA was better to me atleast. And who didn't know MW2 was going to win Shooter of the year. On a side note; SW: TFU2, Arkham Asylum 2 and Spec Ops all looked pretty bad ass.
Well they did say that it's all voted by the people. But I still think they manipulated certain wins too. Especially the voice acting one.
Assassin's Creed 2 is definitely a great action adventure and well deserved its spot. The majority of people who actually played it would agree. Obviously they didn't choose Uncharted for best action adventure cause they didn't want a game to win 2 categories which is totally understandable.
I disagree with you. It's not understandable. If a game wins in more than one category then it wins. If UC2 was the best action/adventure then it was and shouldn't be disqualified because it would win more than one category. Somebody please explain to m how Brutal Legend/Jack Black could have won best voice acting over UC2/Nolan North or Arkham Asylum/Mark Hamill. Who is voting on these things? Really seems like there was manipulation in the awarding. But oh well it is what it is. @MWong: I also thought TFU2 looked good. Can't wait to learn/see more of it.
I didnt agree with most of em except wii game and the awards that went to uc2 and flower.
glad that game got some recognition
GAME OF YEAR !!!!!! BEST GRAPHICS!!!!!! BEST PS3 GAME!!!!!! AND STILL NOMINATED IN LIKE 3 OTHER CATEGORIES!!!! Also it couldve easily taken best action and best studio w/ 5 awards but they had to be fair to other developers and their games. Also I think Starcraft 2 shouldve got most anticipated game I along w/ millions of others been waiting for this game 9 years almost!!!!
Agree completely with the whole list except Indy Game of the Year, should've gone to 'Splosion Man or Trails HD, in my opinion. And my personal 'Most Anticipated' game is Mass Effect 2. I was most impressed with the new "Spec Ops" game, looked really cool. Can't wait till next year.
Well your opinion can eat a wangchung because Flower is the most epic downloadable game ever. Play it. It just might make you cry. It should of been in the category for Best Downloadable Game game.
Sony won the most important categories God of War = Most anticipated game. Unchared 2 = Best graphics, game of the year, and best PS3 game
UNCHARTED 2 GOTY! When Jake Gylenhaal said "UNCHARTED 2" you could tell he loves it too. :)
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM MMMMMMMM blew up every xbox 360 exclusive game out the water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can hear the xbox360 fanboys crying outside lol.
I'm having a hard time figuring out if you're a retard or a 12 year old. ...Oh wait, you're a droid...
They couldn't even come uo with 4 exclusives to nominate? Why was Batman listed in best 360 game, but not PS3? That seems kind of crappy to me. Doesn't 360 have other exclusives that they didn't have to stick a multiplat in that category?
and you will be dealt with accordingly
I'm happy with the results.
Congratulations Naughty Dog! Good bye Guerrilla!
i still cant believe cloe's sexy ass lost to jack black,but that was obviously planned.and then ND lost to rocksteady?? and then uc2 lost to AC2??? i was like wtf is this the make underdogs feel good awards???the show should have been an uc2 congrats ceremony.
AC2 is great, but as a Action/Adventure game, the climbing and combat is very clunky and unresponsive. Between inFAMOUS, Uncharted 2, and Assasin's Creed II...AC2 is the worst when it comes to climbing. On the best studio award: Although ND lost, Rocksteady is clearly one of the best devs of 2009. Arkham Asylum is the in the top #'s of the best games of 2009 along with U2, inF, KZ2, AC2, etc.
Steve Boxer take your Guardian article proclaiming PS3 a disappointment and shove it where the sun dont shine you pug ugly b*****d. UNCHARTED 2 --- GAME OF THE YEAR.
Street Fighter IV best fighting game?! I think I'm going to be sick. Hello? Tekken 6?
it is ..... SF4 had 10x more hype behind it reason it won. I agree w/ you though... I should go play mine right now so it doesnt feel bad for losing.
uncharted 2 should have swept all categories...that game really is head and shoulders above all other games this year. next year god3 will get goty.
God of War III maybe.... I'm voting Gran Turismo 5. ;)
It should have also won the best Action / Adventure game. How could you win the Game of the year but not the award in it's own genre?
They wanted to include Assasin's Creed for marketing purposes, because for best action Adventure game, I would give it to Uncharted!!!
Best Voice - Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn - Claudia Black as Chloe Frazer - *Jack Black as Eddie Riggs* - Mark Hamill as The Joker - Nolan North as Nathan Drake are you freaking serious? Jack Black was just using his own fat f*cking voice, all he he was doing is reading out loud
Yeah when they were showing all the nominees for that category I was thinking that all of them EXCEPT Jack Black would be well-deserving of the award. Then they give it to Jack Black. Holy crap. Personally, I'd have given it to Mark Hamill, or Nolan North. Mark Hamill as the Joker is just perfection.
Mark Hamill is to cartoons and games what Heath Ledger was to the movies. Nolan North was awesome, as always. Jack Black was just Jack Black, giving him an award for that effort is laughable.
anyone of them is deserving except jack black, but the chic who did harley quinn to me was AWESOME. man but what a cast of voice actors though? except jack black of course. damn
My jaw dropped when I heard Jack Black as the winner. He won for being Jack Black!!!!! Nolan North gave what is arguably the best performance ever in a game and they hand it to Jack Black? This was bogus and pretty much killed any credibility the awards show may have had.
About the other winners. An interesting note to look at is the PS3 exclusives and were they came in. GOTY Most anticipated game Best graphics ( 2 of the 4 ) Games made JUST for the PS3 will out shine anything on the market. Just like MGS4 ( GOTY ) did last year. That and LBP.
