GameSpot's Best Games of 2007: Genre Awards

This section of the awards shines a light on the best games in specific genres, whether that includes shooters, role-playing games, strategy, or some other category. Gamespot's genre award deliberations were intended to cover the most popular and most noteworthy game genres this year, which included a blanket category for all sports (traditional and "alternative"). Surprisingly, it also included adventure games, which made something of a comeback this year. The awards were given to the best games in their class overall; not necessarily those games that best embodied the qualities of that particular genre.

Lol at the picture Seriously, what the fcuk is wrong with Gamespot? Uncharted got FIVE awards from IGN, including PS3 game of the year award, and it is not even mentioned anywhere by Lamespot. Not just Uncharted but Metroid Prime 3 and UT3 are also MIA, as if they never existed.

ha uncharted and no Heavenly Sword...both of which easily top AC imo (uncharted critically as well)...

its not so much AC winning...the finalists should have been AC, Uncharted, HS, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and GoW 2...thats tomb raider...not "another" Zelda game...and RE4 Wii edition?...what? that logic Sigma would also deserve a spot on there, which was a fresher remake of an older game...

as if anyone didn't know already...Gamespot is a terrible website with a future still pending...

They may not have won the award, but not even being nominated????

Best Action Adventure Game: Where's Uncharted
Best shooter: Where's Unreal Tournament III
Best Fighting Game: Where's Heavenly Sword
Best Driving Game: Where's Motorstorm
Best Strategy Game: Where's Eye of Judgment

I'm not saying they could have won, but not being nominated when lot of nominated games are unknown or never got the sales...

Let see, everybody here has heard about those nominees since they make the news every day:

Destination: Treasure Island
Hotel Dusk:
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure
RACE 07 - The WTCC Game
TrackMania United
Picross DS
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
Hannah Montana
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3
The Witcher
Europa Universalis III

Most people could not even tell you what platform they are coming from!

Quite interesting indeed : )

Every multi had the 360 version on there, plus Orange Box wasn't even listed as a PS3 game. Where the hell are the best PS3 games. If you scroll further and it has the best PS3 games here is the list:

Assassins Creed - Multi
COD4 - Multi
Rock Band - Multi
Oblivion - Multi
Warhawk - only exclusive

There were so many good exclusives this year and while I agree that COD4 is great, where the hell is Uncharted in these lists. It has some of the best graphics I've seen. Even my gf says that they look better than anything on my 360.

I agree. My gf walked through the living room when I was playing Uncharted and she stopped and watched me play for a few min commenting on how good the game looked. Uncharted is one of the best games out this year on any platform.

I only use the site for forums now. Their awards are ridiculous and they are 360/PC loving fanboys for the most part, especially Aaron "too much variety" Thomas
