Uncharted 2 all the way.
You cant beat perfection.

oh and inb4 alpha male lecturing why Uncharted 2 is not perfect and it has it's flaws yada yada yada.. shut up.

ImpartialMan3291d ago

but Uncharted 2 is close.

from gameplay to graphics, physics, story telling and etc.

@Shanks- With that comment, you just proved your immaturity. So, according to your logic, no one is allowed to believe that GOW, Batman, or Red Dead are better games?

I've played UC2, Batman, GOW3, AC2, Bayonetta and there ALL deserving of any recognition and awards they get.

However, since were talking ACTION game of the year...that honor IMO should go to Bayonetta.

bangoskank3291d ago

I'd go with Bayonetta if it had a cohesive story. The gameplay was the most fun imo though.

Crazyglues3291d ago (Edited 3291d ago )

Are like a tie in my book, both games had amazing visuals great story telling and really drove the character in a full of action and suspense..

-But this is for the best Action Game, I am going to say Uncharted 2 takes it by a slight margin, because some of the scenes are done so well, like when you on the trucks driving near the edge of the cliff in the snow, jumping from truck to truck while shooting...

Come on' that's like as epic as it get's for some Action in a video game, I get chills just thinking about how awesome that scene was, too much fun.. Full of Action.. hands down...

Uncharted 2 takes you on a roller coaster and just as you get to the top and think you know what to expect, they attach a rocket to your kart... right before it goes down the hill... LoL

Uncharted 2 - This is for Action Game Of the Year -Key words
And nothing had more action at times then Uncharted 2 baby.. That game was all over the place, Guns Blazing..

Since it's Action of the Year I vote God of War 3. No other game this year was a pure dispenser of brutal non stop action. Plus it's 2010. Although there are other 2009 games in the list, UC2, Batman, AC2 all have a variety of gameplay styles that's gives them a more adventure title than just Action. GOW3 is gore and violence, sex, death, love, and 100million galons of blood. It's 110% action and nothing but pure action. There are puzzles and platforming, but it's all in the action theme.

number473291d ago (Edited 3291d ago )

in this order.

1. Uncharted
2. God Of War 3
3. Batman -- if rocksteady delivers again. Arkham asylum is the best multiplatform game ilve played in my life.
#90. RDR..

Read dead redemption sucks, its buggy, and its boring. But of course if its all you had to play -- missing out on 1 & 2, well of course you're going to think its amazing. Just like GTA4, after all the zomg hype dies. People will finally admit how ass it was.

vickers5003291d ago (Edited 3291d ago )

Boring? Maybe to an ADD addled 13 year old who doesn't give two shits about a storyline or good characters. Buggy? I ran into only 3-4 bugs throughout my entire playthrough, and half of them were entertaining. Also, if you don't like westerns, then you have no business judging them.

Red Dead is nothing like GTA4. Red Dead Redemption is a masterpiece, and is the best western game there is. Don't blame the game just because you're too immature and uneducated to get why the game is so good, blame yourself, because that's your problem.

The Wood3291d ago (Edited 3291d ago )

my self included

Uncharted 2.. You can go back and still be pleasured playing single or multi. It really was a complete of a package you could get in a game. God of war 3 had tons of polish but the lack of multiplayer doesnt make it as complete as U2. I love single player only games so please dont mistake what im saying. Graphically gow had more was dumb Seems like its that 'infighting time' again;) Batman AA was easily the best multiplatform game and easily the best action game on the 360.

NastyLeftHook13291d ago

uncharted 2 game of the decade

avengers19783291d ago

Uncharted 2 wins in any category you can rightfully put it in.
I really enjoyed Batman and God of War 3 as well...
IMO Red Dead Redemption doesn't deserve all the high prase that it gets. I played the game to the end and found it to be okay, but I didn't care for the multiplayer, or co-op, and the extra stuff you can do in the game is mostly a waste of time.(IMO)

I'll go with Red Dead Redemption. I love how open the game is but there is still lots of excitment in the most of the games missions.

r0gueZA3291d ago

I dont hey - for me its Uncharted or Batman?
Ill vote tomorrow after I give them both another go:/

Da Ill One3291d ago (Edited 3291d ago )

Tough Choice between Red Dead, God of War, and Uncharted, But Since Uncharted came out last year i'll give this years nod to Red Dead, just for the simple fact more stuff to do then just killing people, although Kratos made it look so sexy.

Fishy Fingers3291d ago

It doesnt quite work like that though, it basically, say when considering 2010, includes games from sept/oct 2009 to sept/oct 2010.
