Exclusives should never be awarded GOTY.

Multiplatform should, that way, no side gets all pissed off, well, the only exception being the Wii, for it needs it's exclusive to stay ahead.

My 2 cents.

EDIT: Disagree's ? There's never pleasin' ya N4G, no matter how impartial one is.

You make it sound as though GotY is awarded to keep all fanboy territories happy. LOL!


Focker4203242d ago (Edited 3242d ago )


Saying "Exclusives should never be awarded GOTY." Is as far from impartial as you can get. Any game can win GOTY as long as its not an exclusive. STFU.

Its called Game Of The Year, not Multiplatform GOTY. If your chosen system doesn't have a game that wins GOTY, who gives a sh*t. This isn't some competition in preschool where everybody wins. Your favorite game doesn't win well then tough sh*t. Grow a pair and stfu.

If a game happens to be an exclusive, but it is the best game of the year, then it deserves to be awarded GOTY. Instead of "awww, well I really loved this one game over everything else, but I can't award it GOTY because it'll make all those little fanboys cry". Do you realise how stupid that is??

I have no clue how this game can be even considered a nomination for GOTY. Yeah it played decent but aint no way that's GOTY material.

I was literally salivating when downloading the demo then couldnt believe this was the mighty Mass Effect I've been reading on forums as the greatest RPG in years when I actually played it.

Wow it just seems standards are low when rating games that are not PS3 exclusive.

Nah, I'm not hating or trying to troll but I now see if ME1&2 were PS3 exclusives w/ the exact same content, it would have gotten a lot of 7s from the same big sties that gave it 9.5s & 10s. This is just my view point on this game.

talltony3242d ago

I comPletely agree with you. I was honest to god bored of that demo. I for one don't know what the big deal is. To each his own but rdr and this are not my kind Of games at all. My goty material seems to be on a different quality level.

Commander_TK3242d ago

Much respect to Gametrailers. They gotten a lot better over the past few years. Great descriptions of the nominees and a PC was nominated for GOTY (u don't see that a lot these days).

Honorable mentions would probably go to Alan Wake, Heavy Rain and Bad Company 2.

"Exclusives should never be awarded GOTY"

Good thing it's not an exclusive.


TBM3242d ago

if anyone is interested this website here counts all the GotY picks from critics and readers. plus overall leader for the year.


the overall leader is not who you think it is. also this site is pretty cool as whoever this guy is works hard to gather all the info he needs for this.

candystop3242d ago

ucme and talltony,

You both played a demo only so please stfu.

JohnnyBadfinger3242d ago

The Demo is only the first cutscene and first 5mins of gamplay...the fact you have come to a conclusion after that tells me your GOTY choice is simply wrong.

ME2 was the best game of 2010... just was.

thrasherv33242d ago


Completely agree. How someone can base an entire series on one demo is beyond me. And this is a RPG, not a brain-dead shooter like CoD. I do believe there is story somewhere...

Kahvipannu3242d ago (Edited 3242d ago )

You played the demo. Mass Effect 2 is way more. It continues seamesly your game from ME1, and really starts waaay after demo ends. Play the (full) games, and be critic after that.

And yeah, ME2 was my personal GOTY too. Gona revisit it once it comes out for PS3 too. And I was happy to see Starcraft 2 and Civ 5 on nominees, specially Civ 5.

Thought they were going to give it to another COD game.

Bordel_19003242d ago

ME2 is on PC, X360 and on PS3 in 19 days. What exclusive?

DFresh3242d ago

I highly disagree.
If any game does something original or offers something unique whether retail, downloadable, indie, or exclusive then that game should be noticed and rewarded for their efforts.

Also Mass Effect is not exclusive.
--Mass Effect (Xbox 360/PC) = More then one platform.
--Mass Effect 2 (PS3/Xbox 360/PC) = All 3 platforms.
--Mass Effect 3 (PS3/Xbox 360/PC) = All 3 platforms.

"Exclusives should never be awarded GOTY."

coz if that were to happen the xbox360 wouldnt have a game of the year at all since seeing for the last 3 years the ps3 exclusives absolutely dominated it.

i still think they should have 5 categories for GOTY!
xbox360 exclusive GOTY
ps3 exclusive GOTY
wii exclusive GOTY
multiplat GOTY

Oh man, I was rooting for "splosion-man" to take it all ;P

All kidding aside I pleased with the outcome. ME2 seemed the best in blending most aspects of gaming into one package (story, RPG"isk" elements, shooter, exploration, and an epic adventure). Despite the skeptical view I had about losing the RPG elements prior to launch, BioWare really did a fine job and should be proud.

neo8813242d ago

BioWare = pixar of the gaming industry they have yet to make a bad game.

TheColbertinator3242d ago

Thats great.I'm glad Mass Effect 2 is getting the recognition it deserves

neo8813242d ago

its better than the Epic fail for best PS3 game of the year first the nomines were Rock Band 3 Red Dead Redemption and Black ops then god of war I can see God of war and RD but Rock Band and Black ops esp for ps3 has beeen such a horrible fail. I would have put in Heavy Rain MLB 10 and or Grand Turismo 5

Focker4203242d ago

I guess I'll truly find out if it is when I play it in a few weeks.

FrankMcSpank3242d ago

Well the PS3 version is the GOTY Edition after all.

Vaud-Villian3242d ago

Another GOTY for ME2 makes me smile. It was my favorite game of the year and in 6 days I'll be playing it again.
