PSXE Poll Update: Killzone 2 Squeaks Past inFamous
We actually didn't think it'd be close, but this one came down to within fifty votes or so...
We knew Killzone 2 and inFamous would duke it out for final supremacy in our latest poll, but we figured KZ2 would slip an uppercut in for the early knockout. Well, it never came, and in the end, we have to say that what continues to be PSXE's choice for Game of the Year won not by TKO, but by decision. In all honesty, we do attribute this to the fact that even the greatest experiences can fade in our minds only months after its release, especially when we're currently enamored with another game. We assume a lot of you are either still playing inFamous or have just recently finished it, which may explain the closeness of this competition. But we can't take anything away from inFamous; it's certainly my second-favorite title of 2009 thus far, and I had an absolute blast and a half playing it. Coming up a distant third was Street Fighter IV, but at least it broke a hundred votes, which the fourth place finisher, Guitar Hero: Metallica, didn't manage to do. Really, it was all about Killzone 2 and inFamous, as it should be.
Now, just so we're more aware of our reader's gaming preferences, we have a very simple question to ask this week (before we make things harder again next week). What's your favorite gaming genre? No, you can't select more than one, so just select the category that you love most. C'mon, it can't be that hard!
