Gametrailers continues its Game of the Year awards, next up, best story.
Yet another thing to prove that Uncharted 2 = awesome.
Uncharted2 really came and stole everything.. no competition
Those damn thieves!
Uncharted 2 FTW :)
What made the story so great was in the way it was executed. The pacing throughout the whole game was perfect and the acting and dialogue were superb.
I agree that the story is executed perfectly. Aside from playing the game, it feels like I am watching a A rated movie at the same time.
Yep, totally agree with all of you guys. This is the only game where my family actually watched it, because they wanted to know the story. Shows how good it is, as they hate every other game.
UC2's story was fantastic. There wasn't a single moment where I got bored. One of the best stories ever told in a video game. Has any other game ever sweep so many awards like UC2 has? (I mean, it's winning most of the stuff it's nominated for on the majority of game sites).
I wonder what will be in the Uncharted 2 GOTY edition!
It's award set ups like these that make sense. Kudos to Gamespot and GT for giving the most deserving title the awards, unlike the Spike VGA's which seemed to just spread awards around. You don't see the Academy Awards judges make sure each movie receives an equal amount of Oscars, they give them to whomever deserves them most. Hopefully next year the VGA's get it right. I'd rather have it slighted towards 1 game and any of the 3 consoles if it's well deserving, than spread out to undeserving titles.
It keeps me saying... "Sh*t, WTF, Hell No, Hell Yes, OMG, Not again, Kill me god, Ufff that was close... God... this is out of control"
I must admit that there's nothing too special about the story in uncharted 2 compared to the more complex story like MGS4 but ND nails it with the execution of the plots and the fact that it is a game and players are engaged closely in progressing the well scripted storyline which I think makes the story so much more engaging! if this is a movie, there may be many of you watching, might not get as excited because there are already lots and lots of movies out there with heavy actions and CGs! ND sure know how to blend the story telling and excellent gameplay into their Uncharted series which made the ok story into a memorable GREAT story! plus with the animation and scripts of the characters which all feel so 'natural', Uncharted gives the players the feel of playing in a movie, not just playing a game! at least that is what I feel. what we can conclude with Uncharted 2 is; it's not always a really deep and complex story that we need in order to make a great game. a shallow but good story can be made into a great game as long as you know how to execute them brilliantly like Uncharted 2!
Someone is apparently hungry for bubbles or being sarcastic. Anyone with a Vague knowledge of "Bungie"'s posting history knows why.
YEAH!!! ANOTHER ONE!!!! Uncharted 2 FTW!!!
Sorry, but saying that UC2's story was the best this year isn't much. The stories in games sucked this year. In fact, they've pretty much sucked this generation of consoles. The only ones that I can think of that are any good are Metal Gear Solid 4, BioShock, and Mass Effect.
Rachet & Clank and inFamous. U2 has an incredible story, I can now officially say that U2 has the 2nd best story on PS3.
Not saying the story is bad, but i cant help to think Uncharted is wee bit too much inspired by Indiana Jones.
GT pretty much gave all awards to PS3 exclusives. Can you say domination?
now we need all those ps3 owners and gamers in general to go out and buy uc2 and support good guys like naughty dog. instead of the 10million gamers buying generic shooter 101(aka cod)
I thought they were supposed to be xbox fanboys?! And uncharted 2 has sold fine, in fact brilliant. It hasn't sold at COD levels because it simply doesn't have as many fans. Outside of sites like N4G then you can see the power of the causals in determining sales.
As I said before if Sales determine GOTY the Wii would dominate... It's funny how only fanboys in N4G think that M$ had anything but a terrible year in 2009 and it's pretty much a proving fact even when biased sites have no choice but to choose a PS3 exclusives for GOTY /s orrrrrrrrrrrr maybe it a great game and your to dam blind to see beyond your awesome M$ exclusives that are also on the PC and there SALES.
Eh...This Game Is EPIC, so who care about the sales... Gamers FTW!!!
What's that saying? Fortune favours the bold?
PS3 fanboys suddenly think the PS3 is the best just because Uncharted won game of they think PS3 is the best. Uncharted 2 is rip-off gears mult and not have Nothing innovative in this game. And everyone loves it for its graphics.
PS3 owners think PS3 is superior because a PS3 exclusive won NUMEROUS game of the year awards... countless best graphics, best story, and even being called game of the decode. Well then I'm sorry logic clearly passes you by, may god have mercy on your soul. 'Uncharted 2 is rip-off gears mult and not have Nothing innovative in this game. And everyone loves it for its graphics.' Uncharted 2 is NOTHING like Gears online, I've played both and I can honestly Uncharted 2 is far greater. We also like it for it's story, gameplay, controls, characters. I honestly can't think of something it does wrong except actually ending.
"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." Abraham Lincoln Now think about that the next time you post.
Such a butt hurt bot you are. The PS3 mopped the floor with the wii and 360 this year. It completely dominated this year. LOL UC2 being a Gears rip off. Are you kidding me? Just give up you fuking idiot!
cry moar xb!tch, you're so owned, you amuse me :)
"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." Abraham Lincoln Now think about that the next time you post." Oh he won't. I would wager $5,000 of my own money right now that the idiot box doesn't even know who Abraham Lincoln was (but he certainly knows who Barney The Dinosaur is). He removed all doubt WAAAY back when!!!
He should know who he is by now. His picture is on the $5 bill his mom gives him for school lunch everyday.
knightdarkbox, you are a complete idiot. You do know that don't you?
and Xbox fanboys think the 360 is the best because of a year head start and 2 franchises selling good. We all know Gears was nothing innovating so i dont know why you feel you need to bring it up. I guess you're just a butthurt bot over Ps3 domination this year, dont worry though you get a new power rangers game next year.
@knightdarkbox Killswitch say hi to u. Play3beyond
Uncharted 2: Among GOTY awards.
Drake does it again and deserves any award it wins. Also Last guardian won best trailer i guess it was between last and star wars. Sony is just taking awards this year for pretty much any catagory it just shows the high quality of the exclusives.
lol wait until gears of war 3 comes out. every 360 site is going to say "It's official gow 3 owns uncharted 2" LOL
u meant GeOW right ?
I love the 360, but I seriously think that it's limits have been pushed to the max. No way till Gears 3 look much better than Gears 2.
gears aint worthy of gow there is only 1 gow and thats god of war.
The great thing about the story was that it wasnt fitted around some set pieces, but rather the plot flowed naturally through the different settings. And while it has been pointed out what a down-to-earth main character Drake is, I find it surprising that most "best chicks in games" kind of articles seem to exclude Elena, because I found her to be one of the most attractive, yet realistic, video game characters ever. Neither a damsel in distress nor a politically-correct superheroine, the two games efectively portray her as not as physically adept or strong as Nate, but someone who is plucky and game for everything. Loved the interaction between these two and Scully. I was really afraid there would be no Scully in UC2, again a great character who cracks you up everytime he opens his mouth.
Uncharted 2 had a very good story and was very well told - can't argue with that at all. But I thought there was 1 game that had as good a story if not a little better because most of it was more suprising and yet it didn't even get a nomination. inFamous?
Totally agree with you. And also one of the best realised open world / sandbox environments ever
Disagree because its another PS3 game? or disagrees because PS3 owners don't think inFamous had as good a story as UC2?
AND THE ONES DISAGREEING are just extremist PS3 fanboys (mostly 12 year olds) who doesnt have money to bough games or just COD freaks that only bougth the PS3 just to play the next yearly installment of the COD series. Its a shame exclusives on the PS3 really dont sell when they are the best games available on the console. That shows you that PS3 gamers have variety in its exclusves and they can compete with each other. Doesnt Demons Souls wining the Gamespot GOTY say sometime about the great year of exclusives the PS3 had. Even the worse ones are better than 80 percent of the multiplatform games, and better than the overrated 360 exclusives. WOW! It all started with KILLZONE 2, then MLB the SHOW 09, then inFAMOUS, then Demons Souls, then UNCHARTED 2, then Ratchet and Clanck: ACIT and last but not worse the GOD OF WAR COLLECTION. If these games doesnt move you as a gamer and show you the great year the PS3 had...consider yourself the definition of a fanboy. PEACE AND GAMING!!!!!
for story, I think inFAMOUS should get at least nominated! Uncharted 2's story stands out as the best among all games this year because of the nature of 'telling' the story throughout the whole game and gamers are playing the game within the well scripted plots all the time - although linear but it keeps players 'in' the story the whole time! this is where inFAMOUS can't touch Uncharted 2. the game is a sandbox game and the nature of sandbox games where players are free to go anywhere and do whatever they want within the game are almost always interrupting the progression of the story! so, the story is not flowing for the most part and even if there are players playing only based on the story, it kinda beats the purpose of being a sandbox game. so yes, the story of inFAMOUS is very good but for the nature of the game, in terms of telling the story, nothing beats uncharted 2 this year!
Demon's Souls story was delivered better in my view
im playing Demon's Souls right now and i got to say that i love this game everything about it is just great now when it comes story wise it's a good story and yes delivered in a good way but at the end if you think of it its just good vs evil just like the old days so its has a good sotry but it dosnt bring anything new to the table (story wise) all and all i LOOOOOOVE Demon's Souls
So far from Gametrailers, Uncharted 2 has: Best Story Best Single Player Best Third-Person Shooter Best Graphics I think it has a pretty good shot at GOTY from Gametrailers, looking at MW 2 it has: Best FPS Best Multiplayer I might be missing one but that's all I remember. Does anyone know the date in which they'll announce GOTY?
giving the GoTY to MW2 will make them the joke of the year!
He's posting so much hate in PS3 articles. He's either jealous or full of rage =P
who obviously needs to spend more time playing around with Hooked On Phonics instead of playing around with Master Chief (then playing with himself in the bathtub while thinking about Master Chief).
Sony continues to show the industry how to make a video game the right way. Congrats to Sony on winning the Best Story award for Uncharted 2. This is a well deserved win.
No wonder why one of its earlier nicknames was called: Unrivaled 2: Among Itself
Grammar=Fail! My god
What'd ya do?
Wow, only a Sony exclusive can win this many awards.
Of console exclusive games with numerous awards. For example: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/g...
Back in the moron zone. Sup, guys?
The fact that you had to say console exclusive somehow makes that less potent.
Going with Infamous on this one,UC2 a close second.Either way,chalk up another award for Naughty Dog.Well done!!!
Two things: Uncharted 2 is basically a corridor shooter. You go from point A to point B and the story is expertly told as you progress. inFamous on the other hand is open world and while I think the story was at least on par with UC2, I think it's hard for that story to be conveyed as well in the open sandbox format. Secondly, inFamous was seriously overshadowed by the hype for Prototype, and the fanboy-appeasing publications that rated it just as high as infamous. inFamous took a big warm one all over prototype, but still I think it damaged the games rep enough that it wasnt a stand out success like it should have been.
Mount the disagrees on me here, guys, but it didnt have a good story. It was definitly GOTY, but the story was pretty straightforward.
I think the argument can be made-and rightfully so-that Uncharted 2 has a story that is presented almost flawlessly but one that is unremarkable. Take away the quality of it's combined affects (voice acting, music, action, visuals etc.,) and your left with something that isn't something to write home about. there are other games this past year who's story I found delivered more, Assassins Creed 2 being one of them, but that's just me.
but how its told. However I agree, it the story isn't anything you won't find in Hollywood, but like i said, its how its told that matters here.
I agree the story is nothing special but it is perfectly executed. Assassin's Creed 2 story on the other hand, although good an deep, is way too convoluted and required extensive research and knowledge of history and religion. It also leaves alot up to the imagination. "Take away the quality of it's combined affects (voice acting, music, action, visuals etc.,) and your left with something that isn't something to write home about." This right here you can say about any game. How can you take away voice acting, music, action, and visuals? It is the game! If you do that to any game then you will have nothing to right home about.
Yes, of course Uncharted copied Gears because in Uncharted you kill retarded aliens. Stop crying, face the facts, and face the greatness of Sony, PS3, and Uncharted.
Hi there guys, im new here on N4G. Its just to tell you that i am Captain Bash fon Rosenberg of Dalmasca, and i begg you guys, dont believe Ondors lies, if you believe so then youre gonna regret what youve done.
i can kinda see what you mean but the only way i can see what you're saying is comparing it to a movie like indiana jones except crystal skull (underwhelming)
