Metacritic rates Batman Arkham City and Elder Scrolls V Skyrim as the ones to look out for, but more often than not the game with the highest score doesn't always get the vote.

Only one of those is actually a nominee for spike GOTY and that's Uncharted 3 and his right is a good games but the 2nd felt better.

SoapShoes2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

I completely and respectfully disagree. The third was my favorite and the improved combat really made it better. Also the stealth missions didn't suck like the one in UC2 where it felt tacked on(the one in the dark with security guards) albeit the guards weren't that much smarter in this one.

Although they are both better than 98% of games out there. As far as GOTY awards go, I don't give a crap. Great games at the beginning of the year don't have a chance and almost always give way to hype of games at the end of the year(or worse games that have not even been released when they decide who wins it).

There is not a single moment in UC3 that even comes close to the quality of writing seen in UC2 - I just miss these moments so much in UC3. Hope ND learn from their mistakes and make an amazing game which genuinely beats UC2. UC2 was the much better game IMO and will forever remain one of if not the best game of this generation.

^Shut up, troll. Fyi, stop stating opinion as a fact. On that note, I liked the story in UC3 better as well not to mention I thought it started off so much better. UC2's story didn't start off well to me which is why I put the first over it in terms of story also.

1. Dead Space 2
2. LA Noire
3. Portal 2
4. Forza 4

...................... Even though Xenoblade more than deserves the award, it will probably be ignored by most people................... So the real competition lies between:

1. Skyrim
2. Arkham City
3. Skyward Sword

AngryTypingGuy2516d ago

Haven't played Uncharted 3, but I'm willing to bet it deserves GOTY consideration, and I KNOW that Gears of Mother F'N' War 3 deserves it. But my game of the year, despite a few bugs, is of coure, Skyrim.

When an Elder Scrolls game comes out, everything else is second. I can't wait to see what a next gen Elder Scrolls game will be like!

DatNJDom812516d ago (Edited 2516d ago )

whoever says Uncharted 2 is better than Uncharted 3 must be on some powerful crystal meth. Not only were the grafix an improvement, but so were the animation, the level design, the action, the feeling of accomplishment, the urge to replay the campaign again, the multiplayer. Uncharted 3 is going to win GOTY on many sites and win many awards. I could care less who spike gives game of the year to. what the hell is a spike tv video game awards show anyway? its so predictable that I can name who they will give it to. Batman Arkham City. I'm not taking anything away from the game by the way. from all the games I played this year, Uncharted 3 is hands down the best. Now please disagree away.

Also, just an FYI, its another trash article from the msxbox site. lol. dont even bother reading it. basically they said that these following games shouldnt win game of the year:

MW3, UC3, gears 3, Zelda, minecraft.

Yea lets add gears 3 and minecraft so that we can downplay UC and Zelda. so amateurish, its LOL worthy!

UC2 seemed better to a lot of people and part of that was that we'd never seen a game of that level of quality and polish before. UC3 would have had to have been miles ahead of UC2 to have the same impact, and that's asking quite a lot.

CGI-Quality2517d ago

But for many, including myself, Uncharted 3 WAS miles ahead of Uncharted 2. Just because a sequel is "better" than a predecessor, doesn't always mean a higher Meta anyway. I mean, would most people argue that Gears of War 2 is better than 3, probably not.

ASTAROTH2517d ago

Its the same KZ2 was better than 3 BS some fanboys came with. KZ3 is better than 2 and U3 is better than 2 no matter the score. Theres always something to complain... you cant pleased a whore!!!

Thatguy-3102517d ago

Uncharted 3 divided fans ..many think its a good game others feel like it took a step back. I for one prefer Among thieves but each to their own opinion

kneon2517d ago

Both UC3 and KZ3 improved in many areas over their predecessors, but I can't think of any area in which the improvement was a huge leap.

I for one preferred KZ2 over KZ3 because I liked the dark gritty feel of war as portrayed in KZ2. But that is entirely subjective and has nothing to do with the quality of either game.

Can someone please explain to me why msxbox-world is telling us that Uncharted 3 does not deserve GOTY.

The same guys responsible for "why you should buy gears of war 3 over Uncharted 3"

Remember that fiasco?

Batman, Skyrim, Uncharted, Portal all have an equal chance.

I feel Skyrim will win even though it is broken as hell on PS3, but my vote will go to Uncharted.

It was simply the best experience I had playing a game this year

StraightPath2516d ago

Batman AC
Portal 2
Zelda Skyward Sword

Main competitors for GOTY

however there are alot of runners up for game of the week when they came out. Bronze awards such as

Uncharted 3
Gears Of War 3
Little Big Planet 2

and so on.

This is just an opinion. No need to get mad


thats true, i just like this comment about Minecraft "or delve beneath the surface (and the critics) you'll find a game which gets old fast"

Kran2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

Minecraft sort of died for me after the adventure update.

I mean hunger?! I thought that would be interesting, when actually it just made the game worse. ¬¬
