Such a short list of nominees, was at least expecting COD4 & TOB to make the cut.

SMG is a great game but in a year that has BioShock, Call of Duty 4, Orange Box and Mass Effect, it's really stupid to go with SMG IMO.

BloodySinner4037d ago

Super Mario Galaxy was given the award because it introduced something new and was very original.

MK_Red4037d ago

What new element did it introduce? The planet / platform traveling was a mix of Psychonauts and Ratchet & Clank's ideas. The rest was Mario 64.
If we're talking about new things then what about Assassin's Creed, Portal and many others? And what about BioShock which is essentially THE nest-gen shooter and first truly philosophical game.

You win this one, MK_Red. :-P

Round 2, Fight!

Thank goodness it wasn't Bioshock.This way overrated but beautiful FPS had very convincingly atmospheric locations and good shooting action but was unable to match the first startling few hours.The way Plasmids were incorporated meant that you really only needed the one setup of choice making the whole thing somewhat pointless.Other things like the ability to disable camera's etc were just plain stupid when all you need do is shoot them.Loads of stuff like this make the whole thing fall disapointingly short of it's hype.Good story though certainly less enguaging at around the halfway point.

It's one of the most truly gorgeous games ever created, i'll give it that.

Bioshock was equally as deserving though imo. It seems they thought Halo 3 was better though.

There was no PS3 title in the nomination, but I'm glad SMG got the award. Except for 480p graphics, it is a true next gen game and the only other reason to pick a Wii (other being Metroid Prime 3)

SonyDefenseForce4037d ago (Edited 4037d ago )

and then ported to the Wii and then that made it have crappy Graphics and stuff

My Review = 0/10

Super Mario Galaxy = FAILURE!
