I never been a fan of saying this is game is better than all others that is why never like the GOTY awards how can you say one game better than all others there is no possible way of comparing them, how do you compare Halo to God Of war, Heavy Rain, Yakusa, Red Dead Redemption, GT 5, LBP 2, Socom 4, Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, Fable 3, Super Mario galaxy 2 or vice versa, how do you compare them to each other when there so different…

Poseidon3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

i love my shooters and all, but imo either gran turismo 5, or littlebigplanet 2. )edit

PoSTedUP3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

from what i played: MetalGearSolid: Peace Walker (huge game 40+hours)
runner up for me is: Persona3Portable (huge game 80-100+hours lol)

just my personal opinion. am waiting for GT5 and socom4 right now.

after mgspw and p3p... persona4!

I think this year's Goty awards are gonna be very divided between everyone unlike last year where most gave goty to either Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2. Hopefully, LBP2 gets a goty award. That game contains way too much awesomeness especially the collector edition.

gamerzBEreal173006d ago

i agree its going to be hard for a raceing sim to win GOTY but GT5 can do it and LBP2 will win alot! of goty awards thats for sure part1 was such a great game and that game got alot of GOTY awards AND it came out the same year as gears2 MGS4 GTA4 etc theres really not any huge titles this year like MGS4 are GTA so it should be easy for LBP are GT5 to win :)

mikeslemonade3006d ago

Uncharted 2 is still GOTY for 2010. Until a game surpasses the graphics of Uncharted 2 there is no true GOTY.

GWAVE3005d ago

If gamers are being honest, GotY will probably belong to a PS3 title. Or, a random multiplat game as to not cause fanboy wars.

God of War III. GT5. LBP2. Three ultra-landmark games whose previous games have all won mutliple GotY awards.

ThanatosDMC3005d ago

I like how the guy critiqued ME2. I love the game but it lost a lot of the RPG stuff that made it more RPG than a shooter.

nnotdead3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

well so far for me Mass Effect is still holding the top spot, and that wasn't on my PS3.

i agree. ME2 my GOTY so far, but i didn't like it as much as the first one. i have been saying since it came out, instead of fixing the problems in ME they just throw them out of ME2.

mikeslemonade3005d ago

If Mario Galaxy 2 wins GOTY for 2010 i'm going to be extremely pissed. Mario Galaxy 2 is an upgrade and it does more of the same stuff like an expansion would. If it wins then that critic is putting that game above the likes of God of War 3 which took the cinematic feel to the next level, Red Dead Redemption which took that genre took that genre to the next level, Mass Effect 2's polished game/presentation, Gran Turismo 5 (super realistic), and Little Big Planet 2 "innovation". GOTY for Mario Galaxy 2 just means that you're too biased or blind to consider what other games have achieved. Mario Galaxy 2 in reality doesn't belong in the top 10 games this year. I put Alan Wake above Mario Galaxy 2.

Will win the majority of goty awards because its tons of games in 1.

MikeGdaGod3005d ago


God of War 3 for me.....LBP2 for everyone else

raztad3006d ago

I dont even know why some of you guys pay attention to Gametrailers.

Which game was last year GT's GOTY? MW2. Which game was last year industry GoTY? UC2. GT's MW2 score > GT's UC2 score. OK, I know it is a matter of opinion, but I wouldnt care a single bit about GT's.

BTW, LBP2 is going to blow everybodys mind. You cant pretend to be a serious gaming website and no look forward to that revolutionary game.

gamerzBEreal173006d ago

5 bucks they say mass effect2 even tho i think its heavy rain b/c the story is so epic followed by god of war3 and then mass effect 2 ...

TheLastGuardian3005d ago

come on give it up dude. Uncharted 2 was GOTY last year. I think RDR will win the most GOTY awards.

candystop3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

It's way to early to even think of GOTY. Let's give everybody a chance before we just start picking which exclusive game will win. There are so many sleeper hits on the way I feel all the games we think will win are going to be knocked to the side. Also I hope GOTY doesn't come down to best scores.

edit: Ps3 did have some top notch games this year but to blindly ignore Reach, Fable3, and ME2 is just sad. These games compete with any PS3 game this year.

...I haven’t had the chance to play Mass Effect 2 yet... but besides that, I liked Super Mario Galaxy 2 a LOT.

KILLERAPP3006d ago

I played Mass Effect demo and it was awesome have to rent it soon, too many games so little time…

MariaHelFutura3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

I`m playing Mass Effect 2 right now and it`s definitely a contender, it`s absolutely amazing. By years end, my GOTYs will be GT5 and LBP2. But as of right now, it`s GOW3 and Mass Effect 2.

@killer app

Buy it, EBgames in Canada (atleast) has it`s on new for $29.99 (for a limited time), find out if one near you is doing the same. For that price your stupid not to own it.

m233006d ago

You guys need to play Mass Effect 2, that game right now is probably my favorite 360 game since the system came out. The story, the combat, the characters are just amazing. I just bought the Overlord DLC, which was just awesome. I can't really say anything negative about the game. Trust me and buy the game, you won't regret it.

ER-AM3006d ago

It's no longer an RPG. They dumbed down almost all of the RPG elements except for dialog trees and a morality system. The leveling up and inventory systems are horrible. Other than that, the game's fucking awesome, I just wish there was more RPG in this action RPG.

Kakihara3006d ago

It took me until my second playthrough to notice that my dialogue choices when asked to relinquish my weapons at the space prison were 'no' and 'go to hell'. I know the demo is just a small slice of the game but that along with the general TPS disguised as an RPG feel of the whole demo keep me from buying it.

ThanatosDMC3005d ago

ME2 is worth it every penny, but if you can get it at a discounted price that's even better!

clank5433006d ago

HELLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOO! LITTLE BIG PLANET 2. Not even a mention. And that guy in the middle is such an xbox fanboy. Halo:Reach looks "new" (WTF) and Alan Wake is his emotional game of the year (heavy rain says HI!). Gran Turismo 5 also barely got a mention. Absolutely despicable.

MariaHelFutura3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

If LBP2 doesn`t get GOTY, it would be a shame. I don`t know what else you could ask from a single purchase.

mrv3213006d ago

Gamespot-'Too much replayability'
Gametrailers-'Well it's clearly not that original so we take away points, but we'll give Black Ops more'

jdktech20103006d ago

Well to be fair, Halo: Reach is the LBP2 of shooters......I think it's gonna come down to the big hitters of each console....

God of War 3, Halo: Reach, COD: BO (it's obligatory to put them here), SMG2 and SC2

ChronoJoe3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

Awe. Jdk.

You think Halo Reach is the LBP of shooters? on what grounds? At the moment I'm feeling real sorry for you cause the comment just comes off as silly and suggests you haven't had the pleasure of playing LBP1. Maybe respond and justify the comment? doesn't make any sense to me.

Sure they both offer physics based 'editors' ... but Halos is just an editor, not a creator... not only that has no programming elements... doesn't change the game... just makes the map look a little different... which is kinda cool... but it's not anything like LBP.

Motorola3006d ago

i noticed they were all avoiding sony's games except the host......

demonddel3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

thats they opinion not urs or anybody else's so if they dont like what u like quit being a B!+<# about and accept it

The Almighty PS3rd3005d ago

PS3 just isnt that important. You should be used to it by now.

LordMarius3006d ago

thanks for saving my time, wont watch

D4RkNIKON3006d ago

Exactly, thanks for saving me the time watching it.

BuIIetproofish_3006d ago

Sony fanboy bitching about fanboys.

I'm getting GT5 and LBP2, but not everyone is all over Sony's dick like you are. Halo: Reach does look new, they are adding a lot to the game. You're opinion doesn't matter to everyone else.

shoddy3005d ago

even though they got ripped off and loving it.

gravesg3005d ago

that shit doesn't look new ... stop trying to find ways to blow 60$.

they tacked on a spaceship mode .. and did what optimazation could be done with the new engine on that ancient hardware, and you guys are calling it new. GTFOH

Spenok3005d ago

Hmm... I dont think these guys care much for Sony. Either that or there getting paid off. Either works i guess.

Acquiescence3005d ago

that Heavy Rain was a "close second"?

TheTeam063006d ago

What I hate about picking GOTY is how it usually plays out. The closer you are to the end of the year, the more likely you are to be a contender.

D4RkNIKON3006d ago

That's a bonus point in favor of LBP2! It will make up the rest of the points by being the most customizable creation tool of a game there has ever been.

Vojkan3005d ago

LBP1 already one a lot of GOTYs(it was record prior to Unc2 last year), doubt that sequel will have same impact and win same ammount of awards.

frankymv3006d ago

2010 has been a pretty average year for gaming IMO.

cranium3006d ago

The first half was extraordinary compared to others. Can't say the same for the second half though.
Only games I'm really looking forward to are LBP2 and New Vegas. Those 2 games alone should keep me entertained for months to go if their predecessors are anything to go by. Their replayability was mind boggling.
