Game Of The Year Battle: All PS3 Exclusives?

As we exit summer and roll on towards the holidays, there are plenty of big-name titles scheduled, several of which should be legitimate Game of the Year contenders. But in looking at the entire year as a whole, is it possible that the three front-runners will all be exclusive to the PlayStation 3...?

Last year, it was all about Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots but this year, it might be a closer race, what with arguments for both exclusives and top-notch multiplatform games. There's no doubt that stuff like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Guitar Hero 5, Street Fighter IV, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Assassin's Creed II have a chance at taking many top honors around the Internet, but unless Halo 3: ODST really wows the crowds and critics alike, it's tough to ignore what the PS3 has to offer in 2009. First is Killzone 2, which is arguably the best FPS of the generation and undeniably a fantastic game; it had both innovation and a tremendous amount of polish, and although it has the unfortunate distinction of releasing way back in February (gamers have poor memories when it comes to this), it's still worthy of consideration.

Then comes Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which - if you hadn't already noticed - is dragging down insanely high (almost perfect) review scores everywhere. This one is almost a given. And finally, the wild card: Gran Turismo 5. I can almost guarantee you it's coming this year and if it does, I think we have our Top 3. If not, we probably shouldn't forget about Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time; it's bound to be a gem as most all entries in that franchise are, and we're plenty excited. And for the record, inFamous should qualify, too; I actually liked it more than Killzone 2 (not in terms of overall quality but in terms of personal preference). Lastly, looking into 2010, I see God of War III and Heavy Rain jumping out at me, so...

Yeah, I could be wrong. And if people want to propose other games that might climb into the Top 3 for this year, feel free. We all only want to play the best of the best, right? So bring 'em on!

I don't necessarily see Ratchet and Clank as in the running for GOTY myself, that is, of course, because of the competition it itself has with the rest of the field. I don't see Killzone 2 doing it either, simply because it came out so early on in the year. However, seeing early feedback on Uncharted 2, that's looking to be quite strong, extremely strong in the runnings. But, my hat goes to GT5 when it hits...this year. And it certainly will. TGS is just a few short days away and we're going to have a massive amount of eye-candy and hype to digest before next week is through.

Either way, great time to be a PS3 owner (then again, it's always good to be a PS3 owner).

It doesn't matter when Killzone 2 came out during the year, it's a 2009 release so it's a contender. I see either KZ2 or Uncharted 2 taking top honors.

Hm, I like GT5 and all, but am I the only one who really doesn't think it could be a GoTY contender? I'm not saying it's a bad game or anything, just that, genre wise, it doesn't seem like a racing simulator would be considered a game of the year. (And then again this is in reference to something say, the Spike VGA, on PSX I know it's all PS3 games and such)

To be honest, from the little we've heard about it. And the probability of lots we haven't heard about. I wouldn't be surprised. It's a franchise that sells extremely well, has a massive install base, and could quite literally move as many PS3's as FFXIII will.

I'm pretty faithful that Kazunori Yamauchi and the boys at PD haven't been putzing around for the last 4 years simply to add some head tracking, some new cars and a damage model. Seems like a bits missing don't you think? Anyway, as I said, TGS will reveal all. Going to be fun as hell to find out.

Of course, I don't enjoy driving in real life, so I'm probably in the minority.

Dont really care what becomes game of the year but the developer who made it should be honored( cant think of any other word right now). All i know is i'll be playing all these "game of the year" contenders. Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Gran turismo 5 are all great additions to my library. Halo ODST... I dont think it even gonna impress people that much. Its basically an add on using a different character plus map packs for halo 3 included. Its probably the same experience as halo 3 except that you cant just rush in because you dont have shields. because of that reason and no high damn jumps, im leaning towards trying it out.

Nope. It released about a year ago (Sept. on 360; Oct. on PS3), though the Wii version (not GOTY-quality) may have been this year.

GH5 may be a solid game, but I don't see it getting GOTY, since by all accounts I've seen it isn't _better_ overall than RB2.

Game of the year according to who? That subject seems to be hotly debated throughout the year. Anyways, when we get out mits on Uncharted 2 we might just see why it's scoring the way it is in the reviews. If it's anywhere as good as they say, I doubt niche games like racing or rpgs will win GotY.

No kidding. A dozen different games will win GOTY from various media outlets, followed by a handful of them being re-released with some extra content as GOTY Editions. We all know how this phony drill plays out by now. What we really need is a survivor-like contest between the GOTY's to see who really comes out on top!

I agree, inFamous was a great game. I just want to see what they do with an inFamous 2, because developers usually push their second game harder. It would be nice for this game to improve to the point where Sucker Punch makes the same lame claim that Naughty Dog made about pushing the PS3 to the limits.

It's not as much a lame claim as it is a misunderstood one. By utilizing the ps3 to 100% as opposed to 30% in the prequel, ND has figured out to use all seven active SPU's in the Cell for U2, instead of just 2 or 3 of them at a time. It does not mean that code has been optimized, on the software side, or that this is as good as things are gonna get, because software optimization is full of surprises, and hardly a measurable thing, especially when it comes to the complex hardware of the ps3. Besides, Sony would censor ND for saying any thing that might indicate a premature end of their 10 year commitment to the life of the ps3.

Saying that the GOTY's this year will all be Ps3 exclusives is just stupid. Maybe next year with Agent, GOW III and The Last Guardian, but this year only 2 will likely make it, while things like Assassins Creed 2 and Brutal Legend will likely flesh it out. There's no doubt that there will not be a great game this year thats not on the Ps3, but saying they will all be exclusives? No chance

It will be have to be Modern Warfare 2
1) its multiplatform
2) its a sequel to a game of the year.

why is ODST on there? isn't it a add-on or spin off or something like that? 360 has to have something better than that for GoTY consideration.

I believe its gonna sell more than any game but game of the year, i dont think so. However there are many media outlets that picks game of the year because of popularity so its got a good chance as any other game. but as an overall game of the year, it doesnt hold a candle to killzone 2 and uncharted 2 in quality. I will be getting modern warfare 2 so i'll see you then but only getting the regular version. Prestige is too expensive and harcore is too. It does come with cod1 but i got into cod because of modern warfare so i dont care about it.

MW2 at E3:
"Here's your big moment. Show us what you got!"

"uh ok, here's some ice climbing."

If that wasn't an epic fail I don't know what is.
MW2 was embarrassing compared to what Uncharted 2 pulled out at E3. I repeat, MW2 won't be as good as some hope. The xbots will vote for it as game of the year though so they can still claim their box handles the best games.

i don't know.. for me it's a three way tie between killzone 2, uncharted 2, and gran turismo 5 (if it's released)

my runner-ups would be inFamous and Demon Souls. inFamous is not really GOTY material for me because when i was playing it, there was a certain point when i get fed up of it and i play killzone 2 instead. on the other hand, in killzone 2, i still have to unlock the last rank and some of the ribbons... plus, i didn't even beat the story mode.

The posters name is Wipeout and although funny as hell, what he shows you and says is the truth. I loved it. And here is another...

XBOX 360 IS WORTHLESS (Pt.1).. There is a part 2 and many more on this guy. He's a PS3 god man. check it out..

And lastly their is a poster named Elpresador who is a comedian in his own right and a PS3 supporter. He is drop dead funny and type in this search for his vid...

WHY MICROSOFT LIED

RROD

LMFAO!!!

As for Goty contender my baby is GT5, but in all honesty I will have all 3 of those titles and love them all. And Infamous is up there too. Sony just has too many dam good exclusives, and the train is just starting to really fly down the tracks now. Sony FTW all the way from here on out.

Obviously you must be a Xbox fan which is fine in you're own right, me I was a 360 sucker as well. First next gen system on the market. Had to have it. RROD twice, and went out and bought a 20gb unlimited Halo machine. Still have one, selling the other. Once this one goes cause my warranty will soon run out, THAT'S IT!! No more Microsoft for me. Mine just sits and is quiet like it should be. Will fire it up and hope it doesn't catch on fire or something to try this so called Definitive Racing game called FM3.

But sorry that Elpresador is rough around the edges, but 99% of the time he is right about the 360. I can relate totally to his comments. Dam you have no sense of humour even, the guy is incredibly funny. Lol's.

Uncharted 2 is definitely the top contender for GOTY. Gran Turismo 5 can take "Definitive simulation game" of the year. Killzone 2 "most defnitive FPS this year (unless Dragon Rising tops that)". But all can unanimously agree Uncharted 2 set the bar so high other developers may reconsider their stance on the PS3.

Ben, i agree with uncharted2, but there is some point i need to make.

first, a GOTY is depending on 3 element:
1: sales 2: press score 3: gamer score

it is hard to imagine a game top these 3 elements cannot be a GOTY.

second, lets face it, we all know the GOTY is going to be in between MW2 and Uncharted2, probabilities are below:

90%: MW2 and Uncharted 2
8%: GT5(if release this yr)and Assassin Creed 2
2%: other games like Killzone 2 and Forza 3 (if GT5 not release this yr, otherwise no a chance that Forza3 will outperform GT5)

if considering actual sales, there is no way U2 is going to outsell MW2, (expect U2 to sell 5m+ and MW2 to sell 12m+), if considering attach rate, 5m is second best selling game on ps3, then we might call it an even. i assure u GT5 will be announced at TGS to come out this Dec, because sony needs this to win the TGS, because sony needs GT5 to win christmas!

about ODST, it is going to be good, but a Halo 3.5 is not going to get GOTY.

i know i am making too much assumptions here, it is just really hard to see one game other than the top 4 can outperform them and get the GOTY, can anyone name one to surprise me!

8% for GT5. LOLLOLLOLLOL!! Not a racing fan I take it. The Gran Turismo series is (along with the Metal Gear Solids) were the reasons people bought Playstation products. Those games set the foundation for Playstation GREATNESS!! Take a lesson from a guy who has had every system since the Atari 2600.

Now as for Unchartered 2, one site (I forget who reviewed it), they have a 20 point game rating system, and they couldn't help give the game a 21/20. I believe that and that game is gonna recieve perfect scores from many. But GT5 selling roughly 8% of PS3 owners purchases. Not!! GT5 is one reason you buy a PS3 my friend.

Wouldn't Final Fantasy XIII be a solid contender? Even though it only comes out in Japan it is still a 2009 release.

That's a great point, but English-language websites and networks will only count those games released in the West (and most only those released in the U.S.).

"Then comes Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which - if you hadn't already noticed - is dragging down insanely high (almost perfect) review scores everywhere."

Almost perfect? Didn't it SURPASS Perfection? [21/20] =P

Anyway. Yeh. I think we're all forgetting about the wrath of Modern Warfare 2; commercialized conformist music will always gain more credit and attention over bands that create more meaningful music.

[And yes, I know: no need to argue into depth about "conformism". Just decided to type it because it sounds funny and it fits].

something tells me the new ratchet and clank will be my personal game of the year, with uncharted at a close second.

and you forgot that the xbox enthusiasts will be able to unite behind that halo game coming out. thatll be enough to shove it though to game of the year on some sites, though i hope not on any of the major ones...

Uncharted 2 but I bet it'll be robbed. No offense but if this is a "all Sony Playstation news" site.. would it matter if Halo: Original Dick Sucking Toy wins or not? We all should be more concern on what is on our own platform.

I for one hope infamous wins it.

I really don't want a shooter to win(looking at both Killzone 2 and MW2)if you used to playing shooters like resistance or call of duty(or almost any other shooter) I can assure you that trying to get used to Killzone2"s "heavy weapons" can kill a person with high blood pressure. And for Cod6, it doesn't take a gamer to know that it's going to be the same gameplay as cod4, the single player is the only reason I want it.

And if Infamous doesn't win I hope a game like Batman AA or Gran Turismo 5 take the GOTY award.

Yes, all exclusives

Though, SFIV is a big contender.
Based on the score you guys gave it I'm sure you understand

But nothing can compete with Gran Turismo 5

I've got a question in relation to the recent Uncharted 2 "beta" that I've seen people playing (as I myself didn't get a key for it). The multiplayer demo that's out at the end of the month (i believe?), is it going to be EXACTLY the same as what has been on the beta, or is it more of a "refined" version with more stuff?
Thanks. :)

It'll be most people's GOTY
Not even Uncharted can stop GT5

Dunno guys, I'll take a game with a story and some emotion over laps around a track any day.

I think Game of the Year should be something that will be remembered for years to come (i.e. Half-Life.) It should be something that moves you, hopefully even changes your idea of what a video game can be (i.e. LittleBigPlanet.)

While the Gran Tourismo's are without a doubt quality products, I'd be hard pressed to tell you the difference between GT4 and GT3 aside from slightly improved graphics and small tweaks to the physics system.

It's a good time, but there's not a lot of variation, and I can't even watch NASCAR on tv, I definitely don't need to see virtual cars covered in ads going in circles.
