Game Of The Year 2008 Awards Dominated By PS3 Trio?

It won't be long before we have to hand out our Game of the Year awards, but we'd like to know what you think beforehand. The last top-notch PlayStation 3 exclusive for 2008 has been released, and we figure now's a good time to ask: what was the best PS3 title this year?

We suppose you're free to mention a multiplatform game, like Grand Theft Auto IV, Fallout 3, or Dead Space, but it's the powerful trio of top-notch PS3 exclusives that have impressed us this year. It started with the amazing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in June, moved to the innovative and addictive LittleBigPlanet in October, and just recently, we received the gift of super fun intensity with Resistance 2. This is the trio that could very easily dominate any Game of the Year awards ceremony for any publication or event, simply because the three games all fall into separate categories. These aren't three fantastic FPSs or RPGs that have excelled and entertained; these are three titles that may appeal to the widest possible demographic of gamers out there. There's the cooperative platformer (which, in reality, probably doesn't fit any genre mold), there's the action/adventure game that some purists may wish to sub-categorize as "stealth," and there's the straight-up FPS; perhaps the most popular genre today. And yes, they're all exclusive to the PS3, which - in our minds - separates that system from the competition.

There's no doubt that GTAIV and games like Gears of War 2 are clear GoY contenders, and there's no doubt that multiplatform titles sell the best (more consoles, more owners...duh). But we consider this a unique situation: one console has three exclusives in one year, none of which falling into the same genre, and all of which are legitimate GoY nominees. The last time this happened may have been back in 2001 with the PS2...Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Gran Turismo 3. A fine, fine year. For all platforms, really. But can anyone really argue against the idea that 2008 was indeed the year of the PS3?

well i havent played LBP or resistance yet but i think mgs4 will take the crown .
even though i am new to console gaming and didnt play any mgs game in the last generation mgs4 still managed to be the best game i have ever played despite its complicated backstory which i had to read on wikipedia.

I really want MGS4 to get GoY because it truly deserves it. It is an amazing game on varies levels including graphics, sound, gameplay, replay value.... The list goes on and on.

That being said I unfortunately but quite positively believe that something like GTAIV or GoW2 is going to get it this year and that sucks. I believe this because of the marketing campaign both of these titles received and the seeming corporate and media backing they both have. GTAIV got perfect tens, a feat that no game had accomplished in over 12 years, and personally I don't believe it should have garnered such support. It was good yes but not by any means perfect, and GoW2 is enjoying its day in the sun despite bulky character builds and a shallow plot line.

Oh well let the crown go to the money makers, let the gamers know the undisputable truth.

I think that MGS4 should be GOTY.

There's no way GeoW2 will be, and if it is, will be 'cause some company drop a lot of money.

Actually I think that GeoW2 is way below the 3 Sony exclusives.

I've been playing the solo campaign of R2 and GeoW2, and IMO, R2 has been more fun.

MGS4 definitely deserves it. You cannot possibly compare the developing of that game to anything else out there. With its awesome story and its 1 billion cutscenes, along with an unbelievable quality of gameplay, and graphics, there is no comparison.

Sure R2 revamped their second installment from the first greatly, and I guess GeoW2 kinda/sorta did to an extent (with a better story) but it still cannot come close to MGS4's totally unique and revolutionizing appeal and dedication to quality. To me it's a clear winner.

LBP is great too, but I still believe MGS4 has it in the bag quite easily.

Well 360 also had Fable2,Gears2,Better Fallout3 dis year.But frankly if u look @ the ps3 list u can see bioshock,eternal sonata,Lil' big planet,MGS4,Resistance-2.So,everyone in dis universe will agree with me that this is the real big start for our Black Beast.But no game comes close to Solid Snake's last Adventure.
Ben u forgot that in 2002 we also had Kingdom Hearts-1
In 2005 we also had Kingdom Hearts-2,god of war,mgs3,burnout3,Shadow of colossus[i imported frm jp]
So,wat do u think 2002 was better than 2005?

Actually, if you read multiplat sites like Kotaku or Gamespot, you'll see there are many 360 players experiencing problems with Fallout 3, some on par with the PS3 game, some worse.

Resistance 2 is the only one of those three I'm not so sure about it. It's reviewing slightly lower overall than MGS4 or LBP, which is to say it's coming across as great rather than excellent. The other two are fairly guaranteed to clean up across their respective categories.

PS3 will not truly flourish until super grand JRPGs are released, like FF13, FFv13, WKC, The Last Remnant, Star Ocean 4, ICO3, plus GOW3, and plus all the rest of the RPGs, Action/Adventure, Action/RPGs from big Sony/Jap software companies, thats the root of SONY. I am waiting for that time to come, seems too long already.

I think next year will be an even better year for the PS3, Ben. With titles like God of War 3, WKC, and FFv13, three more contenders that could easily go for GoY.If theres any I'm missing, feel free to add them.

MGS4 was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Not just in terms of gameplay and story, but simply the experience of owning the game. There were groups of people at my house every weekend for a month to check it out. And I'll never forget its launch day, when I turned my system on to play the game and noticed that all 5 of my friends that were online at the time were all playing the game. I've never before felt more a part of a worldwide phenomenon. Gaming BEYOND its finest.

not wanting to rain on the ps3's parade but i don't think 2008 has been the year of the ps3. mgs4 and lbp are great (need to wait until the end of november for r2 here in euroland) but for all the hype from sony (and fanboys!) i was expecting more. more in sales, more in experience (heck we can't watch movies/tv shows via psn here...), more blow-your-mind-games. And where is home? (yes, yes i know the open beta is coming tomorrow - for a select few but i don't expect it until next year). looking in the future i'd say 2009 will be the year of the ps3, 2008 is just a fore-taste of things to come.

I'm living also in Euroland (Netherlands) and imported Resistance 2. Only wanted to say : WOW! The forest level is absolute creepy (Predators) and there is much more going on screen compared to Resistance 1. Next year ? Killzone 2, GOW 3, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5(earlier than expected they say), Ratchet & Clank sequel and hopefully Uncharted 2, Team ICO project. This year was indeed only a small taste.

The only hype I see is on the internet and among friends of mine. Sony really should advertise more. The only commercial I saw more than one or two times was the one for resistance 2. I see an xbox commercial every time I turn on the tv.

I was just reminded of the Apple commercial where the pc is putting all his money into advertising instead of fixing vista. It's the same thing with the 360.

Sony needs to advertise more, but not as much as microsoft.

LBP because it was the most unique and fun game all year even though it had multiplayer teething problems at launch. For runners up GTA4 (I am still playing it and never liked the previous games in the series just look at the Four Leaf Clover mission for the best bank heist mission in a game ever and multiplayer modes and options are plenty), Resistance 2 (The single player has a lot going on and multiplayer is phenomenal). I didn't like MGS4 gameplay. That was just not my cup of tea.

Sooooo...uhhhhh...I hear this Metal Gears thing is supposed to be pretty nifty. :D

I may actually pick that up. Only reason I didn't is because I didn't play any of the first 3 games. I bought them as a bundle and started the first one, but got sidetracked. I really would like to have the full experience instead of just jumping in on the tail end. But, with so many great NEW games, it's hard to motivate myself to pick up with MGS1.

well, to be honest and a bit of a downer. it will not surprise me to see that either Halo 3 or Gears of War 2 takes the title. most of the people out there seem to be major fan boys. Pretty sad when you think about it. but if i had to vote. i would put it all on Metal Gear Solid 4. it was one of the best games i have ever played.

Concerning LBP, which issues are you referring to? Control, online, level design?

Just curious as out of the 3 exclusive games Ben suggested, I've only had a chance to play with the sackboys. I think it's bloody brilliant, lol. Though I am eager to play the other 2 as well.

I've downloaded the demo for MGS4 and I'm gonna dive into that later tonight, but I'm fearful that it might make me rush out and buy the full copy and I was hoping to wait till it went on sale which would give me a chance to buy MGS3 and play that one as I missed it the first time around. (MGS1 and 2 were fantastic!)

Thank you for trolling. It is such a nice change from the mostly polite and non-instigating comments from the other people here. Jerks in my opinion for not trying to start a flame war all the time.

But really, do you really believe that GTAIV is a superb game? I have played all the GTA titles and I mean all of them and one thing is blindingly apparent, the games never really change, a few features are added and a few are subtracted between each iteration, and the graphics are upped a bit. But, underneath the hood they are the same thing over and over and once all the islands are opened the real appeal of the game crashes and burns.

Do you like it because the main character is Russian? If in MGS4 you got to play as Volgen (I think that was the boss from 3)would you have fallen in love with it? Oh well to each their own I suppose. I have to admit though that I was not as wholly impressed with R2 as most seem to be but it was a good game with a much better story and better graphics than GTAIV.

For me it's just a happy time in general to be a gamer. PS3 is doing great, PSP is finally getting games. 360, though showing some age, has GeoW 2 and Fable 2. Wii....doesn't have any hardcore games but it has some of the best pick up and go games around. but GotY just has to go to MGS4. It's by far the most polished and intense out of any of those.

MGS4, definitely best game of the year. LBP should win its category too. Unfortunately, I don't think resistance will win best shooter. Don'T get me wrong, I love the game and think it should win, but all those Xbots out there will probably get gears 2 to win.

There is no way R2 will get GOTY, anywhere. While it's fun, it's nothing to go out and buy a PS3 for.

MGS4 WAS my pick in June, but I don't think the looooong cut scenes appeal to everyone, and I can't forget about the damn 3rd act...I hated it.

Act 3 is my favorite in the entire game. Classic film-noir themes set in a dark, humid European city, with tense stealth action without the aid of technology, topped off with the most intense chase/action sequence EVER in a video game...

Yeah, Act 3 was the best.

Of course cut scenes don't appeal to anyone, but if you don't pay attention to those cut scenes then you won't be able to grasp MGS4's messages and storyline to it's fullest.

When it comes to video games, music or art in general you can't satisfy everyone, but on the other side MGS4 is just one of those games that I'm sure 90% or of the gamers who played it, liked it.

While Fallout 3's replay value is insane, LittleBigPlanet's creativity is amazing, Resistance 2's action leave's you speachless, I have a 6th sense Guns of the Patriots will take the game of year award in most websites/shows/etc. There is no Ocarina of Time this time around to contend with Metal Gear Solid 4.

It seems I'm the only one that wasn't seduced at all by MGS4, its the only ps3 game out of a dozen now that I've traded in. Everybody keeps saying what a profound story it has but I couldn't wait for it to be over. I have an attention span mind you, I'm in the middle of Wheel of Time and I did beat it just because, but I just don't find anything about it at all that impressive, the graphics are nice and consistent but there's better and they don't make the story any better. Not that I have a problem with people liking what they will but I just don't get what's made so many latch on to it as some kind of holy grail of gaming. If I were to brag about the PS3 it's the last game I'd bring up, much more excited about the upcoming WKC and GoW3, oh and Rise of the Argonauts but that doesn't promote fanboyism.

PS MGS4 and R2 aren't that different genre-wise, ones a FPS ones a 3rdPS, subgenres sure but the vast majority of their gameplay revolves around guns.

R2 was wicked, haven't played LBP, and tried the demo for MGS4. I seem to very much dislike stealth games because you don't really get to do much shooting, and the view is awkward for shooting in MGS4 to increase the view for stealth. I guess that's just me, cuz everyone else likes it.

GTA IV is a lot better coz the grad theft autos are always the best games ever since GTA III came out. Saints Row is good coz its the same. On any GTA u can do wot u want drive, shoot, fly, swim, take over turfs, you name it,anything!!!!!
