GamesThirst GoTY: Out of 4346 Votes, 3031 Voted Uncharted 2 Game Of The Year

While many websites had a full roster of games on their GoTY list, Games Thirst decided that since we're about to abandon the blogspot and go to our new URL that we would not have a full roster of titles on ours, but instead pit two of 2009's biggest titles head-to-head and let our readership choose. And chose they did.

one of the best games ever made.

Skip_Bayless3218d ago

Uncharted 2 is the best game this generation.

theEnemy3218d ago

It's not a game, It's an experience.

TheDeadMetalhead3218d ago (Edited 3218d ago )

Uncharted 2 is an outstanding game, no question. But imo Killzone 2 should be GOTY, followed by Demon's Souls, THEN Uncharted 2. Of course, all three of those games deserve it.

movements3218d ago

Let's all just show Uncharted 2: Among Thieves all the love it deserves!

Such efforts should be hailed in our industry and built upon.

xbots are the most bigoted hateful group there is.


Shooting game fanboys who can't enjoy a game if the male characters don't look like they are on roids, they also hate the idea of a protagonist having a hairdo and are apparently okay with their women looking like men too (see Mass Effect 2)

I just can't say enough bad things about this group of "gamers" known as Xbots.

hatchimatchi3218d ago (Edited 3218d ago )

ditto @ op,

uncharted2 is unrivaled when it comes to it's graphics (for tps games, kz2 is just as good but a completely different style), motion capture and voice acting.

I can't wait to see what naughty dog does with uncharted3, i expect the biggest change to be the gameplay style. The cover system in uncharted2 is nothing groundbreaking and nothing we haven't played before but i predict uncharted3 will change all that.

The 360 community aren't all like that. One of the best and worse things about the 360 is that it comes with a headset. Some of the kids playing on the 360 are the most juvenile & pathetic people i've ever come across in life.

I've had bad experiences on the psn but it's usually just people calling each other noob or dropping out of games early. I've never heard anyone being racist or screaming curses at other players.

Aleusia3218d ago

Not literally ALL of them are like that, but are just as bad in their own way...or aren't Xbots, just xbox 360 owners or multiplatform gamers.

I could truthfully say that not literally all of the Nazis really hated the jews, some were just there to do a job and act as guards to their homeland.

Strange how accurate that is in this case too, when speaking of all the white supremacist rednecks that just happen to be Xbots.

If the shoe fits...I believe is the phrase.

unrealgamer583218d ago

its my favorite game......... ever

Somnipotent3218d ago

i love how people disagree with your own personal choices. i guess it's their choice to do that. damn fanboys.

JoySticksFTW3218d ago

Uncharted 1&2 (and Demon's Souls) are right up there

Man... with Mass Effect, Gears, Oblivion, inFamous, Warhawk, Dragon Age and more - and with GoWIII and other greats on the way - this generation has been a beast!

Darkfiber3218d ago

Then 3031 people would be wrong. Demon's Souls, Batman, Borderlands, Assassin's Creed 2, Killzone 2 and InFamous were all better than Uncharted 2.

Torkith3218d ago

An opinion is an opinion that's fine, if you believe all those games are greater than Uncharted 2, that's cool. But you can't say 3031 people are wrong... that's just idiotic, VOTING is A PERSONAL OPINION... god some people...

movements3218d ago

You alright? Batman better than Uncharted 2?

-Alpha3218d ago

Those games Fiber mentioned are all great, but certainly nobody is "wrong" with choosing what THEY believe to be GOTY.

If you are going to dictate a winner, then at least try to back up your extraordinary claims with extraordinary evidence.

Darkfiber3218d ago

I can say, in my opinion, those games are better than Uncharted 2, but I can't say, in my opinion, 3031 people are wrong? How is that any different? You just contradicted yourself.

Razmossis3218d ago

Yes, Batman's single player is better by far.

Uncharted 2, whilst having great graphics, camera work, and some great sequences is still cheesy, unoriginal, cliched, lacking in depth and atmosphere and variety in gameplay. Drake as a character ruins the game, people compare this game to a Hollywood blockbuster... but Hollywood blockbusters are mostly dumb as sh!t.

Batman's gameplay is varied and spot on. It's story and campaign is exactly what people have wanted for years yet totally unexpected. The voice work is fantastic, the games predator and combat arenas I'd compare to Substance! It has over 70 years worth of depth and is the most atmospheric game since MGS4.

Nathan Drake is a cheeseball whilst Batman is pop cultural icon and has been for generations.

Anyway, my single players of the year are Batman, Ass Creed, Uncharted 2. My overall GotY is still Uncharted 2

jtenma3218d ago


You know what dude/dudette, you are right. As much as I liked UC2, Batman came out of F#$%%#@ no where with its polished mechanics...and excellent atmosphere.

-Alpha3218d ago

that's a good question fiber. But, again, you are trying to dictate and superimpose your opinion as "more correct" than others, which is why it's a bit rude to say that other people are wrong. You can in your opinion you think those games are better, but to say other people are wrong in thinking the opposite of you implies that GOTY is universally true when it is in fact subjective.

Torkith3218d ago

Your opinion states that Batman: Arkham Asylum is better than Uncharted 2; fair enough, no complaints. Now you're opinion is that other people's opinion's are wrong? Just like Alpha-Male22 said, you're taking a route that your opinion is "more correct." I think all we're trying to say is, something like I THINK THEY'RE WRONG because I liked Batman more, is far better than THEY'RE WRONG because I like Batman more. Get it?

ThanatosDMC3218d ago

Borderlands was a great game but not GOTY material. I would say Demons' Souls Assassin Creed 2 were the closest.

bjornbear3218d ago

stating that they are "wrong" is disrespecting thier opinion, if anything mention that "in my opinion....." as it clarifies that, other wise you just sound dismissive

But sure, U2 wasn't the favorite by about 1400 gamers so obv some differed in opinion, including u =) and i respect that.

Somnipotent3218d ago

all great games my friend... but the experience i had personally with uncharted ranked up among a major blockbuster film. i was glued to the screen and felt personally involved in the events taking place. that's why uncharted 2 is my personal goty. your choices are awesome in their own rights though.

I agree with you, saying 3031 are wrong just sounds, well, wrong.
