Eurogamer's Game of the Year 2009

12 months have passed since we crowned LittleBigPlanet our writers' game of 2008, and as your mousewheel has no doubt just informed you, Sony has made it two in a row. Having compiled votes and considered pleas from over a dozen staff and contributors, we can reveal that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is Eurogamer's Game of the Year for 2009.

Thanks Naughty Dog.

Thanks Sony.

(Sorry Snake(MGS4), Drake(U2) is now my #1.) :P

Does anyone else find some of the editors' criticism ridiculous? Age-old mechanics? Are you serious?

sikbeta4839d ago

UC2 is Amazing, but I'm a MGS Fanboy so Nate and Solid will share the #1

PS3 FTW!!!

I'm surprised they gave it GOTY. After all, they're amongst the most bias websites out there. Still, they gave UC2 a 10/10 as well right? It was only obvious which game would win. UC2 really has no competition this year.

Uncharted 2, buying a PS3 at launch was worth it for this game alone. Still though, I wish inFAMOUS won some awards, that game is amazing, my top 3 games this gen are probably Uncharted 2, MGS4 and inFAMOUS. Not sure how I'd order them though.

InFamous, though repetitive, was an INCREDIBLE game and I wish it would get more recognition as such. It's really kid-in-a-candy-store type fun, you can do whatever you want, blowup as much sh!t as you want and there's no slowdown and it all looks beautiful.

Don't be pathetic. Eurogamer is one of the best sites around.

naughty dog truly need to wrangle out a huge pay rise with sony

Eric Cartman4839d ago

Dave, don't forget it's Sony's money they are spending on these big budget games in the first place.

It's not just ND that deserves praise (and a raise), but GG as well. Killzone 2 is a masterpiece too.

Kudos to Sony for giving these awesome devs lots of money and time to bring us these marvels.

Yes thumbs up to Sony and Naughty Dogs

Troll_Police4839d ago

Uncharted 2 is an unstoppable force that can't be denied. It's winning ALL of the GOTY awards from just about ALL sites and mags. No game has ever won this many GOTY awards. Great job Naughty Dog and Sony. You both deserve it.

'All the same, Simon and Kristan's criticisms elsewhere today are all valid. The mechanics are old-fashioned - flashing hidden treasure, for goodness' sake, and clumsy and shallow combat - and at times it's second only to Ubisoft's flawed but well-intentioned 2008 Prince of Persia in holding your hand through grand platform puzzles, which you just as frequently ride along with as solve.'

Old-fashioned and your example is that the tressure flashes... stuff flashes on MW2 infact I promise you it's be hard pressed to find a game that doesn't draw your attention. Clumsy and shallow combat. What is he smoking.

The gunplay is for lack of a better word PERFECT as is the hand to hand. Having completed Gears 2 and Uncharted 2 the winner in my mind is Uncharted 2 for combat because your enemies go down quickly.

I honestly don't think there's been one site that hasn't given GOTY to UC2. Well, Gamespot gave demons souls GOTY.
