I am sorry to hear that. It was not my intention to offend or bother any of you. I am not an expert at Gears but i have played enough of it to know that its fucked up and what is wrong with it. According to your stats, you have not played the game online yet (you're not missing out on much though to be honest)

Anyway, sorry if i have offended anyone. I lashed out because i suppose i am a tad frustrated that every post i seem to make leads to flamming or getting flammed by someone else.

Just because you think something's wrong, doesn't mean it is. I know someone at work who loves the game, but it doesn't automatically think it's great.

For example, I trolled the ToV boards on GameFAQs because I thought ToV was a piece of shit compared to Symphonia and the Abyss, but that doesn't mean it is.

tl;dr - Your fucking opinion is not a fucking fact.

i didnt say my opinion was fact. look mate, i dont want to argue this so lets just forget about it.

back on topic: did anyone take a look at gamespot GOTY awards? they were strange to say the least...(burnout paradise was nominated for best graphics O_o) http://au.gamespot.com/best-of/year-in-review/index.html

anyway heres my GOTY awards (feel free to take my post apart)
Best Multiplayer game - Team Fortress 2 (*gasp* could it be? a balanced multiplayer shooter?!)
best graphics - Crysis Warhead
Best singleplayer campaign - dead space? maybe farcry 2

is GTA even an action game? how does it get best action game on 360 (i think ninja gaiden is the only game on that list that IS an action game) :S the others dont surprise me (except GTA4 for best graphics) and it is good to see Bad Company nominated for best shooter and best online multiplayer.

I'd probably pick something else myself, but after playing the game this is very hard to argue against.

And yes Grand Theft Auto is an action game. It's a very broad category.

I think, unfortunately, Persona 4 is going to get overlooked this year, as there doesn't seem to be any PS2 categories on any sites I've seen.

Well GameTrailers gave best PS2 game to freaking Rock Band 2 (bleck). Of course I hate those games, so that's just my hate shining through.

Rock Band is fun, and I assume it's sequel is even better (lol Australia). I don't think I'd ever buy the PS2 version of it though.

It'd be easy enough to recommend to someone who just wants to play with their friends and doesn't care to upgrade to a PS3/360/Wii any time soon, but for a best of platform award I'd rather see something that's exclusive, excels, or at least isn't inherently worse than on other platforms. I'm sure Rock Band 2 is vastly superior to 99% of the other games downported though!

It's worth keeping in mind now that I think about it that sometimes you'll have different staff covering different platforms, I'm pretty sure IGN does this anyway, so in that way you could just be seeing the favorites of a specific crew and not a universal opinion.

Oh of course, and I’m sure different websites handle their end of year awards in different ways too. 

But man, it's weird to see a toned down port getting a game of the year award, even if it's on the PS2. For me at least; I’m surprised they didn’t go for something out of the left field.

I had hoped there'd be something interesting said to justify the reasoning like with the Forces Unleashed choice by Time explaining how it was better than the recent movies, but I just got some typical stuff.

This is why sites should a category titled "Multiplatform Game of the Year". And I'd imagine Persona 4 blows any Guitar Hero/Rock Band game out of the water. Persona 3 most certainly did.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been awarded Overall Game of the Year on GameSpot. Yay!!!
