Find out which game achieves GameTrailers Game of the Year Awards 2009's Game of the Year title!
Definitely saw this one coming, not saying I agree with it, but it was extremely obvious seeing as how the always have Infinity Ward on Bonus Round.
Wasn't just included in Bonus Round all the time, they gave the damn game it's own 4-part episode. Rode that game's jock hard all year. Wore that thing out. I don't know anyone who takes their shoddy little turds of journalism seriously. Everyone I know who uses that site only does so for the trailers or marketplace.
like i said before they just want to appease the masses and go with the game that most people own just to look good... in the end true gamers know what the real GOTY is
yeah MW 2 deserves it just for the Multiplayer alone *activate energy shield*
lmao, of course GT wouldn't give to UC2. Lame. GT= fail.
Among Thieves "gathering dust"? Really? Uncharted 2 has a great multiplayer component. @ Bungie That's the problem with Modern Warfare 2. I enjoy playing it, but a game of the year should be more than just a great multiplayer experience. The campaign has good moments and spec-ops is great but overall, I don't see it "Breaking the Mold" or showing us something that hasn't been done before.
is a great game. Especially online. I've already put over 100 hours on this game, it's like sex. Very addictive. Going to 3rd prestige now.. But nowhere a Game of the Year winner.
... *lols at Bungie's energy shield*
Which mould did MW2 break exactly? It's the same as every other FPS
"1.2 - yup. like i said before they just want to appease the masses and go with the game that most people own just to look good... in the end true gamers know what the real GOTY is" The real GOTY is whatever game True Gamers choose. So yeah, you're partially right. While I don't agree with their GOTY, GT gave a justifiable reason for their choice.
Lol we know who bases it on popularity. His argument was that he played more MW than U2. What a crappy argument, probably cause he was like everyone else and liked an easy online mode doesnt make it a better game. How very sad.
It also won GOTY for PC, PS3, and 360. It's quite obvious GT is sucking the ballsack of Infinity Ward.
suprise suprise, all gt ever talk about is COD and infinityward
MW2 is hella-fun. But it's still nothing more than a fantastic expansion pack for MW1. As for best game of the year, it's not even in the top 3. UC2, Batman: AA, and Demon's Souls were all far more deserving, and that's just off the top of my half-drunk head. What a joke. Gametrailers has lost touch with the gaming community.
GT still living in denial. They know exactly what they are doing. The massive 360 brigade of fanboys on that sight would be up in arms if they had giving GOTY to Uncharted 2 (ps3 exclusive). Oh well, when our children ask "hey dad! how much GOTY awards did MW2 win compared to Uncharted 2?" we will all know the answer.
Uncharted has been Unseated.
Something is wrong with Gametrailers. They're obsessed with that game. I really only think Gametrailers is in the business for the money and nothing else.
Anyone that defends this... well it doesn't even need to be said. MW2 is the 2nd most glitch ridden game released this generation. Personally I think MW1 (COD4) is a better game and a few of my friends have already went back to it. Check my profile before claiming anything. I just got done playing 6 rounds earlier tonight on XBL. I am already losing interest in it and play it less and less with each passing week. Uncharted 2, Demons Soul, AC2, and this garbage is GT's GOTY? Please. I feel sorry for developers that actually give a damn about making quality titles to be treated like this. MW2 is over rated, over marketed, glitch ridden mediocrity and not GOTY.
@1.23 Exactly. Why should they bother doing new stuff anymore when they can pump our a rehash of the same crap and get it crowned GoTY
i play both games on a regular basis, and i would give UC2 a very close choice of 2nd place, RIGHT under .......... ....... ....... Demon's Souls being my GOY MW2 kicks ass as well, but it kicks ass in 3rd place this year imo i dont believe they gave mw2 the GOY award based off popularity... Spike's VGA's did that because the popular gamer's VOTE gave it to UC2. i think they gave it to mw2, because no other big site did, and they had to be different.... more like a political move..lol
U2 was amazing and had a better campaign, however Mw2's multiplayer is great, I've already had 7 and a half days spent in its multiplayer. For me that combined with a good single player and a fun specs mode is GOTY. Now of course this is opinion, if you don't like MW2's multiplayer, or are a PC player Mw 2 is definately not GOTY for you. *edit* They probably chose mw 2 cause they like multiplayer, and I can bet you that millions will be playing mw 2 two years in the future, its that addicting.
Well.....that was.....expected. No suprises here.
The only site fanboyish enough to actually go through with this! Well, they gotta cater to their fanbase! They had no 360 exclusive to latch onto!
I predict their 2010 GOTY right NOW... ... Mass Effect 2. Mark my words.
Uh oh...here comes the sequel! Uncharted has been Unseated 2.
That's so funny how video starts out by mentioning things like GOTY should "break the mold" or "push the envelope" yet in the end picked MW2 for their GOTY. A complete contradiction.
Do you expect anything less than hypocricy from Gametrailers?
Uncharted 2 has won game of the year from like 16 other sites and one picks modern warfare 2 and they are bias? Come on. Maybe they just thought that Mw2 was a better package? Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I enjoy MW2 greatly and it will be a game I play for years. The single player was fast paced and exciting, the spec-ops missions were unique and adrenaline pumping, and the multiplayer is addicting and rewarding. That all adds up to one heck of a game.
i have to agree with you there. U2 won so many awards, and DS as well, that its only fair MW2 gets SOMETHING =P Still, I completely agree, MW2 is far less innovative than even U2 was, but hey, who cares U2 won everything, its beyond this.
Only PS3 games must break the mold... it's ok if multiplatform and 360 games are too similar because no one likes the PS3.
Who really didn't see this coming after all that crap Shane Satterfield was talking about originality, and then MW2 gets a 9.5 anyway.
Clap... Clap ...Well Said People want Sony to fail this gen..even though majority of the games that deserve the title of "next-gen" is on that console. U2:AT puts U:DF to shame... MW2 and MW1 are the same... (back to Darksiders on X360)
You want to know what is the real problem, When some GT tool reviewed UC2 said it was anything new or something already done, or not innovative, I don't remember right now, but then MW2 comes out and GT give it a 9.5 What make MW2 better than any other game when you know is the same as MW, where is the improvement, the innovation, or whatever that make it better This is not only about UC2 not being GOTY, Is about objectivity, a site that is objective must give the GOTY award to the Game that it deserve to be, not the Most Over-Hyped game or best seller If UC2 is not GOTY, is OK, but there is a lot of good games this year, to just pick MW2, Batman AA for example
What is bullcrap is that Uncharted 2 won GOTY and GT didn't pick Killzone 2 "to be fair". GT themselves stated in this very clip that games should push the enevlope... Name ONE thing that MW2 does that's innovative? I can name several things Killzone 2 did that broke boundaries: - First Person Cover - Sixasis-enabled sniper rifle - Broke Graphical boundaries for a First Person Shooter (probably the first game to exceed it's CG trailer graphically) - Hit Recognition system - 3D bullet holes that cast shadows - Adaptable AI - quick-action knife draw (you don't have to start pushing the button before you strike, which gives you a tactical edge for drawing it over shooting or using the butt of your gun) - and even in-game the characters actually changes facial expressions if you want to get technical If you want to go on the multiplayer side, it's the first multiplayer game that's non-objective that combines game types; not to mention the first multiplayer that doesn't degrade immensely from the single player when so much was applied graphically. Okay, and Modern Warefare... ? Exactly. "...fast paced and exciting...unique and adrenaline pumping... and... addicting and rewarding" Even you couldn't name one thing that justifies GT's statement... because they sure the heck couldn't. for all of that "justification" none of those words say "innovative". But hey, go ahead, give this game undue praise while other games loop it in every way; all it will do is push some developers more and make other people think they can poop-out GOTY AAA titles when in reality they just messed themselves.
*Stands on chair and APPLAUDS* Well said pixelsword!
like always gametrailers fall for the hype and pick a overrated multiplataform game, so they do not fall in to the fan boys wars, Call of Duty is a great game but not the game of the year, maybe the most buyed, the most hyped and the one of the most casual games of the years.
Really I don't like Modern Warfare 2 I do agree it shouldn't have won but COD MW 2 one of the most casual games of the year??? really. If MW2 is casual then what do you consider Hardcore??
I'd say it is very casual in the sense that it's a noobs game IMO. You can't really separate higher and lower skilled people because of stuff like auto-aim, all the perks, overpowered side weapons, too many camping spots.. My opinion of course.
" If MW2 is casual then what do you consider Hardcore?? " Demon Souls. ;-)
facepalm for this.. Uncharted 2 is goty of 2009 absolute!!!
Hopefully now everyone will stop here will stop giving that site hits. It's obvious they are bias and not to one certain system but to whom ever lines their pockets with the most money. Geoff Keighley has lost all my respect. Not just for this but for the insane amount of hype he was hinting at before the Spike VGA's and all the announcement being absolutely underwhelming. For defending the f*cking "ho's and guidos" from "The Jersy Shore" show that he had on the VGA's. Stevie Wonder talking about videogames?! Granted it was about videogame music but f*cking Stevie Wonder?!?! And now MW2 sweeping the GOTY awards across all platforms?! It's sites like this that tell developers that it's OK to release a half-ass sequel and they would be rewarded for it. The GameTrailers awards is like winning the Spike VGA awards, it's cool to have but no one respects what they say or think.
Funny how they say to be game of the year, the game should "break the mold", but mw2 breaking the mold is as hilarious as Jesus christ playing golf with the anti christ.
First off GT knows nothing about the complexity or history dealing with video games. they just play game trailers and have an open hand to recieve money from any developer paying. Second: to say Game of the Year needs to push the envelope, break the mold, or be very well polished, then say Modern Warfare 2 is game of the year. Hell Space Invaders on the Iphone could have won Game of the Year over MW2 Modern Warfare 2 is DLC from Modern Warfare. So basically developers can sit back and relax and make the crapiest games and win awards as long as they ADVERTISE like CRAZY because that's all that MW2 is, one big commercial.
Lol. Anyone remember when GameTrailers gave the Best Graphics award to Call of Duty 4 over Crysis in 2007? Yeah. GameTrailers has lost it's vibe over the years. It's pretty clear that the publisher with the biggest pockets is gonna get the GOTY awards. I'm sorry, but I don't care what platform you're loyal to; but if Uncharted 2 doesn't win the GOTY award over some re-hashed sh1t like Modern Warfare 2, there's something wrong.
...they were riding IW jock like rhinestone cowboy (Well I said the rhinestone cowboy part. lol). "Break the mold" - I agree. It goes back to their originality criteria, which is why it doesn't surprised me that they chose...wait a minute. MW2 actually goes against that criteria. Wow GT, you're FoS. Meh, I'm not surprised.
How many people playing MW2 compared to U2? millions more......not a few, but millions mate. MW2 is what people are playing ...get over it. You may not like it but MILLIONS do mate.FACT.
Who the hell cares about how popular the game is? It's impossible to argue CODMW2 is better than a game like Uncharted 2. Just becuase COD is a 12 year old's dream game doesn't make it GOTY.
I bet you there are loads more people playing Super Mario Bro's Wii and Wii fit, does that mean THEY deserve GOTY? Man you cheerleaders are so damn delusional. We are all talking about QUALITY here, and you bring QUANTITY. Brain damaged much? Oh and for future ref. Adding the word "fact" in capital letters at the end of anything you write doesn't make right ;)
so basically what you're saying is that just because people use crack more, it's better than cocaine. Bad analogy. Popularity is not an indicator for Goty. If that's the case, Wii sports (I'm not dissing the game people) should have been GoTy, even though there isn't any online indicator of the game being played but to sell that much, people has to enjoying and playing the game. Better yet, all those pokemon games. Nothing new to them, but millions are sold everywhere. It's very popular. But don't you find it funny that based on GT, GOTY has to 'break the mold', thus establishing their criteria. It's not about popularity. Anyway, whatever, it's a wash. I'm not surprised at GT.
lol the 360 fanboys are celebrating yet over another multiplat turd. I played this game at my cousins and it left me with nothing but a bitter taste. The bloody game is the same as the first.
"if Uncharted 2 doesn't win the GOTY award over some re-hashed sh1t like Modern Warfare 2, there's something wrong." There is certainly something wrong alright. With you, and everyone who thinks like you. People like you who do not understand what an opinion is, and will never learn to respect one, because they are selfish children who think everyone should think like them.
hey, give US the real Pandamobile back! I was certaing that you are THAT Pandamobile when you're talking about Crysis and then suddenly sided with Uncharted 2! the Real panda won't do that IMO! but you're right, nothing else beats Uncharted 2 for GoTY this year!
vickers500 - You say there's something wrong with Panda and anyone that agrees with him? That's certainly something I'd expect a child to say. Oh, you also contradicted yourself a bit there, it's Panda's opinion, so you're one of those people who do not know what an opinion is and will never learn to respect one? :) Or are just as much of a child as you claim the rest of us are? Panda is a PC fan, IW screwed PC gamers over with MW2, so of course he's not going to like the game and I fully agree with him. It's not an opinion that there are no dedicated servers on PC. Respect the Panda.
Demons souls is a good example even a 7 year old can beat COD and be good in the multiplayer with a lots of kids talking trash and just killiong like crazy with no strategy and nothing just kill like crazy that is a simple example of a casual game.
Would you expect anything else from one of the most bot infested sites on the net? Of course they'd give it to a generic overhyped shooter. It's what bots like.
seems like the bots bubble raped you
Correction: A "superior" bot, if you know what I mean.....
Can MW2 players not spell properly :P (Just pulling your leg)
okay its GT i understand that but WTF is this it also won best ps3 game, okay GotY mybe but best ps3 game? no
Thats quite a fail right there
yeh but if game a beats game b as goty, game b isn't gonna beat game a in a console specific category is it! that would be as stupid as like at the VGA's where ACII was the best action game beating the goty at it's own category, but atleast the excuse there is that it's a fan voted contest
F*ck off, come back, then f*ck off again.
it got a goty award =) so cute...
I think u guys are on crack, not MW2 online.
a crappy site awarding a crappy game, this form of homocrapality is abundant in nature.
You all make me laugh. If millions of people are playing it, your trying to tell me it's no good. Great laugh. If millions buy it, again your telling me it's no good. HEHE most of the gaming population are at this moment in time playing it, and your STILL trying to say it's no good.........Well maybe we should stop enjoying this game and maybe you can tell us all what we CAN play . NO .,.....Miley Cyrus sells millions of albums, because thats what the people want, If they didn't no one would buy them, Don't you get it? People buy what they want, play what they want, And MW2 is what they want .
Look how many people buy sh1tty music? You think just because Miley Cyrus sells millions of albums that that makes her music good? Popularity =/= Quality, when are you kids going to figure that out.
