sorry but ME2 is an action RPG.
@ahlan Dragon age was last year. Best RPG (other then ME2) = New Vegas/Fable 3
God of War III is a masterpiece of a game. GOTY without a doubt.
God of War 3 deserves Oscar for its brutal fashion and best Greek mythology storyline! I was satisfied to the fullest with this only game.
I like mass effect 2 - but its a shooter as far as i'm concerned - there aint much RPG to it. Part one had a lot more rpg elements and i was expecting them to grow these elements, not cut them
WOW..it wasnt even a close vote... GoW3 deserves it!!
God of War 3, couldn`t have given it to a better game.
God Of War 3..not surprised.
Most Overhyped Game of 2010 – Call of Duty: Black Ops Ding ding we have a winner xDDDD.Every year it's the same cod being overhyped and look what happened this year ps3 players got a shitty port maybe this will convince you not to buy that crap.Especially next year with uncharted 3 ,killzone 3 etc.....coming out.
These guys made good choices. Edit: WOW 5 disagrees? WTF for? Nobody has the fucking balls to reply, hide behind your disagrees children.
How I hate when people QQ about their disagrees. Do you know what disagree means? It's when somebody doesn't share the same opinion as you. So obviously, some people think they didn't make good choices. And that's the whole point of agree/disagree system on n4g, get over it.
Best Shooter of 2010 – Call of Duty: Black Ops Most Overhyped Game of 2010 – Call of Duty: Black Ops
It's like everyone ignores Bayonetta. What the hell, guys.
I'd put GT5, GOW3, Castlevania and Bayonetta without a doubt. Exclusives or not I enjoyed those games quite a lot. And I only played them on the PS3. ;)
Don't worry, man. It's the popularity contests that often do. The game is acknowledged by editors' choices of many sites/mags. Off the top of my head Ign. Not to mention the upcoming Edge magazine awards ;)
Vanquish was better than Bayonetta in my OPINION. 5 disagrees for a comment like that? F**K YOU GUYS.
So people cannot disagree with your opinion? That's funny.
Seriously, all it means is that they have a different opinion. Not like they bubbled you down. If they did, then they deserve to suck on...well, you get the idea.
the only bad thing about vanquish for me was the shortness of the game. bought it and I think renting it would have been better. The experience was simply AWESOME! Bayonetta was extremely good, just the ps3 port that sucked and since I didn't know the difference between the two version (360 ans ps3) I bought ps3 to find out a couple of days after that the 360 version looked better. If the rumors about bayonetta 2 coming out in the future are true, I hope the next one won't be port over by sega again....
Most overhyped: Black Ops. Hahaha, loved it.
ME2 all the way
Honestly, why does it matter. Whether it's God of War III or Mass Effect 2, I'll firmly stand behind either decision. Same for Heavy Rain and Bayonetta. Those four were neck and neck for me.
I will never forget the first 30 minutes of GOW3. Without a doubt the greatest start I have ever seen in a video-game. EDIT- there seems to be a serious disagree gremlin in the comment section
I think people are forgetting how gobsmacking, jaw dropping, pants wetting GoW was. The opening hour was without peer. The only thing I can think to compare it to would be maybe the first time you saw Terminator 2 or Jurrasic Park and you said to yourself, is this for real? I'm loving GT for its depth but GoW is a worthy winner. Nothing else is in its class and probably wont be till KZ3 or Uncharted 3.
Hell yeah! One of the best openings in a video game I've ever played... well, that and inFamous.
For the best game of the year Red Dead Redemption scored 2nd ! Holy hell. I really disliked that game ...boring boring boring... better graphics then GTA4 ? no way,! it seems to have because it has 10 times less stuff on the screen. Most overrated game of the year to me is indead RDR. Black ops was MUCH better then that other game. But this CoDBO was just an average game.
You are nuts. Red Dead is an epic game, deserving of it's acclaim. GTA4 was shit in comparison, lets not even mention Black Ops.
What happened with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood? It at least deserved to be somewhere on the list, not game of the year worth, but at least something..
By far the sloppiest, most half-assed GOTY article I've ever read. JPS, this is pathetic. You didn't even try and write anything.
Ummm, isn't this just liking taking a poll on N4G for game of the year. Its pretty obvious what would win... Lets remember the many polls around that said Kinect would conclusively be a failure. Then again, i guess these are what will go now, since post GT5, professional review sites like IGN and gamespot have no idea what they are talking about and are all garbage, so their GOTY awrds will mean nothing.
the only fail i see on that list is best shooter (COD BO) i would have said bfbc2 was the best shooter this year but also would of excepted reach.
God of War III game of the year?!? Please, it's good but it's not even the best game in it's genre this year (that would be Bayonetta). I personally would pick Mass Effect 2 and the fact that it isn't even in the runners up is pretty pathetic.
please bayonetta sucked. it just had a disporportional woman showing her juggs, and copy/pasted GOW and calld it a game.
GOWIII is an amazing game, it was my vote for GOTY. Must say I thought RDR which I also liked a lot would have received more votes being a multiplat.
yup GOW3 def should take many GOTY RDR was fun.. but for me it suffered the same fat as any other GTA.. you do everything and it basically becomes not fun nymore.
I somewhat agree, towards the end of RDR I was fed up with the side-missions and just powered through the main story, there was no way I could go searching for any more damn flowers! GOW however I didn't want to end, took me around 15 hours but felt so fast.
Meh! Boring choice. It was a great game while it lasted, but too anticlimactic for my taste. It was a nice weekend game. I beat it and then sold it. It's 2 days of my Year. It just doesn't have the power to sustain the whole year. It's forgettable. RDR is easily the game of the year! Anyone that clicks on Disagree. It actually means you agree with me and if you click on Agree. It means you disagree with what I just said. Yeah that's right. I just changed the rules!
I see what your saying but I doubt many people pick there GOTY choice based on how long it took to finish clock it. Games GOWIII's length take me around two weeks, it's the wow factor that counts. Gameplay, graphics, sound, those moments when your sitting going holy f*** that was awesome!
OMG 4 people disagree with me. That means they agree!
GOW3 GOTY,...no surprise! amazing graphics, no AA, Cronus vs Kratos, amazing music. what more do you want son? but i disagree with GT5 being best racer. I have yet to play the game and I know I would get bored of it so easily. Hot Pursuit is the best balanced arcade racer i've ever played
MLAA should be used in all PS3 games
lol...2 disagrees....butt hurt fanbois. Just because Reach did not make it or Mass Effect. you have to understand that ps3 is a powerful system. I love my ps3 man! Bluray is amazing! Ong Bak 2 and Iron Man 2 on BluRay:) -Ninja Gaiden 2- is sick!:)
God of War 3 really does deserve it. The only one i disagree with is Black Ops for best shooter
God of War 3 has it's own level of awesome :)
