MMGN.com selects its 'GOTY' after Community voting came to end. Read why it chose Skyrim for its 'GOTY' for 2011.
I support this decision.
Me too. This game put a stop to anything else I wanted to play this month (Even Zelda which is still in the plastic). I cannot stop thing about this game!!! I started on my Xbox 360 and at around level 35 I got the game for PC and it ran so much better I just couldn't go back the the Xbox version and be happy. I wanted the best experience I can outta this game so I started over and am now level 33. Loving the mods also. I knew it was gonna be good, but this blew away my expectations by 1000. So far my GOTY (maybe this gen) [email protected] - "guys remember this is N4G you cannot say any other game deserves GOTY instead of Uncharted 3. hence why you all are getting disagrees' Yea you are 100% correct about the fanboys here.
Skyrim is game of the year. But the top games of this generation are still COD4, Uncharted 2, Oblivion, Mass Effect 1, and then finally Skyrim. In that order.
first the obvious one. Skyrim > Oblivion also... COD4 was good but activision is doing what they do best; tarnishing the name. COD4, fun for a little while, never was the best game this generation. Hell no. Mass Effect 2 > Mass Effect 1, Mass Effect 1 has the better rpg features..... Elder Scroll games have better rpg features then Mass Effect 1. Here's the one the has gamers at each others throat. Uncharted or Elder Scrolls. ok I'll take a side, Skyrim over U3 for GOTY.
This story shows the sort of gamers that N4G has. "guys remember this is N4G you cannot say any other game deserves GOTY instead of Uncharted 3".... grow the hell up you pathetic children. Uncharted deserves GOTY awards same as GOW, LBP2, Portal 2, Skyrim, Zelda, Witcher 2... etc. Most of you havent played these games you comment on because you get moronically offended by different systems. I hope Duke Nukem wins then maybe it will shut most of you little turds up and the comment section will be readable again.
@ Mrdead Is it ok then if I have played uncharted to..Twice! and still think skyrim is the better game? any, for me personally this video sums up why skyrim is my game of the year; http://www.youtube.com/watc...
well there is no better made game this year, so I would go with Skyrim. This game has been known to have ten trillion hours of game play >:)
Great year, indeed. I still think Portal 2 is GOTY.
guys remember this is N4G you cannot say any other game deserves GOTY instead of Uncharted 3. hence why you all are getting disagrees
it seems your the only ones saying this. edit,msclmexican, peopleare making it seem like it looks like a ps1 game, i looked at the comparison screens and laughed, people exagerate stuff. and im not upset, i payed 8 bucks for skyrim brand new. @buzz7s, careful now, your talking about uncharted, a franchise with more awards than any bethesda game, or any for that matter.
Skyrim is visually stunning on both consoles... the problem is that on ps3, once you hit a save file of over 6mb, your f**ked. And it sucks to because I was really looking forward to skyrim, but the game refuses to let me play it. Thats why I voted Uncharted 3... i finished it and I loved every second of it. I love Skyrim too, but until Bethesda patches the game, I won't be able to progress anymore
He is the only one saying this, becuase all those who disagree are just being sneaky disagree-ninjas becuase they dont have any real arguments to support thier decision.
No... its because most people like my self are upset that Bethesda once again made a shoddy port of such a great game. It is so broken on PS3 that ps3 gamers refuse to let it win GOTY because we feel cheated... But yeah...uncharted 3 has my vote... the only GOTY nominee I have not played is Skyward... but I lost my wii.... ):
Other than Oblivion. Name a single Bethesda RPG that doesn't have memory issue with the PS3. This is why bought mine for the PC. After Fallout Vegas there's no way way I'm buying their game on the console ever again.
Agreed 100%. Even around the time of the whole PSN hacking scandal, I bashed on the PS3 a little and made it clear that I have a PS3 and I will be playing Uncharted 2 while the whole thing blows over... I got called a liar and an Xbox fanboy. Go figure. When Naughty Dog can produce a game which involves hundreds of hours of gameplay, then I'm sure a lot of us can say "Uncharted deserves GOTY". Until that happens, which it probably never will, PS3 fanboys need to take a seat and watch a true developer, develop a true GOTY.
ure a true troll, i can understand that u dont like it or thing goty needs to have a lot of hours to play, but saying true developer (downgrading ND), develop a true goty, makes u sound just bad.. Ure just a troll, i can buy a 360 and still be troll bashing or downgrading the 360 games, even if i play them, hiding behing a ps3 dont change that fact. U can prise all u want skyrim, but bashing Uncharted or ND shows your true colors.
@buzz7s: you honestly sound like you're just trolling nd lolz i can't say anything bad about skyrim because i don't own it yet, but it sounds like its got quite a few glitchies to work out which is why i'm not getting it yet~ and why do you not think that nd is "true" developer?... they have a pretty good track record for releasing polished games, no? o.O
I haven't touched Uncharted 3 since I installed Skyrim. Its all Skyrim all the time for me now, this game just take over of everything. Life, personal hygiene, other games....are all secondary.
I have put on a bit of weight thanks to skyrim and now my sofa looks like a creator with a big dent in the middle.
Maybe for consoles. PC should go to Witcher 2.
UC3 > Skyrim!
Zelda > UC3 > Skyrim
There`s too many american teens on this site...but I`m with you:)
Skyrim GoTY? HAHA!!! Til your save file hits 6mb.Then its Slide show of the year.
Thanks god i got the 360 version.
My save file is at 8 mb and it runs fine. I have skyrim on ps3...It's easily my goty.
Just minutes ago, half sleep I accidentally deleted my main Skyrim save data from my PS3 :( I had to start from another save data 6hrs. back from where I was, and now I have to do 6hrs. of Skyrim over again... ='( ..and yet this game is still amazing even despite my major screw up. Just hope Bethesda can patch the PS3 version soon, I was trying to delete some other saved Skyrim datas to smooth the game out because of the PS3 version's bugs, but ended up erasing my main save...
It is a tough choice but I have all the games considered and I have only played one since it released...skyrim. I am sure the witcher 2 has better combat and overall production value as Bethesda never really emphasizes certain moments over others like bioware does. But, it creates the greatest open world RPG ever made. I cannot wait for the switcher on the 360. Graphics wont b as good but the gameplay and story will b the same. So for me, my goty in a phenomonal year is the one i cannot stop playing. I am sorry to everyone who bought for ps3. I buy everything for it except exclusives and ...Bethesda games. After fallout, it was easy to switch for new Vegas and skyrim (& yes i know obsidian made new Vegas, but u know what i mean.) & i am very happy w it on Xbox. No problems thus far and to me it is gorgeous, the graphics r fine. Do not install it on Xbox. Because of the heavy usage of casche, textures are not loading. When i deleted, it was great and i didn't notice any extra time for loading either.
Bug of the year.
I Agree! Skyrim full of bugs or no bugs, the game is beautiful! Skyrim GOTY hands down!
skyrim with all the bugs, freezing and locking up my console ( and I am talking about the 360 version ) is still my game of the year.
Exactly. Those problems can be fix with a single patch. Yes granted they shouldnt have been there from the get go. Still they can be fix and once they are the game will be in its perfect state.
@saint_seya - calling me a troll and hating on Naughty Dog... talk to me when you've still got a PS2 and STIL play Jak & Daxter. Maybe even after you pre-order the HD remake, which is coming in February, 2012, then you can call me a troll. Until then, hop off. Uncharted is nothing more than a rather generic action TPS game. We saw it in both Uncharted and Uncharted 2. Uncharted 3, other than its visuals, doesn't do much for the series.
for you, it means...just because you're stating your OPINION it doesn't mean that uncharted is a generic action TPS game!! just get your ideas straight dude, don't make them sound like facts..Just ask yourself why the media awarded uncharted with more than 150 prizes as GAME OF THE YEAR? maybe they're crazy right??
i wanted this game so badly until i heard about that save file slow down thingy XP when they patch that i shall get it =.= lolz x)
bethasda will probably wait for the GOTY edition to actually patch anything, i cant remember if they did anything to the fallout series on ps3 (patch and glitch fixing).
They did patch fallout 3, but it was a month or two after release, added trophies i believe. but i never really had any issues with fallout 3, from what i remember tbh. However Vegas on the other hand was pretty much broken, for at least a month and a half after release......until they fixed it!. i remember getting 3/4 of the way through the main story and my save data wouldn't load, lol.
Maybe as far as RPGs go , but Serious Sam 3 is the best FPS i've played in a long time and makes call of duty look like a little school girl because it acutally requires skill.
i love when sites say their "community" voted a game for game of the year. so basically the 3 people on the site gave it to skyrim, congrats bethesda, maybe you will get a paper mache trophy from the site
Despite the bugs and the framerate dips I would give this game GOTY. But seriously Bethesda fix the bugs especially the lag issue on the PS3. XperiaRay
