PSXE Poll Update: Uncharted 2 Will Snag Game Of The Year

We put up last week's poll before any reviews for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves hit the Internet, and that game was already raking in the most votes. Yep, you guys know what you're talking about.

In what could end up being a very tight race for Game of the Year 2009, the majority of you believe Naughty Dog's unbelievably awesome sequel will bring home the ultimate prize. Not surprisingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came in second, but we're a little disappointed in the faith people have in Gran Turismo 5. If you ask us, we say that if GT5 does indeed launch this year, it's going to give Uncharted 2 a definite run for its money. And yet, more people voted for Batman: Arkham Asylum...which, despite the greatness of that game, is just plain wrong. On many different levels. But I digress; the point is, Uncharted 2 is most definitely in the driver's seat for GotY this year, and in all honesty, it comes as no surprise to those of us who have been saying it since...um...February. Oh, and let's not forget how great Killzone 2 really was; it's still the single best FPS of the generation thus far, in our opinion.

But with all the amazing games on tap for the holiday season, we're wondering how much of a hit your wallet will take. Do you plan to buy as many as you can? Are you reserving a great many for the Christmas list? Can you really only afford one or two? It's always hard to pass up fantastic games simply because we're a little low on funds, but sometimes, it's unavoidable (especially with the recent economy woes). So what's your plan? How many you gonna buy over the next three months?

3 to 5, probably 5. Good number right there

My list goes like this:

Demon's Soul
Mini Ninjas
Uncharted 2
Gran Turismo 5
Ratchet and Clank

Probably a few PSN games too. So discounting the Store games it's right on 5 hehe.

Can't believe people underestimate GT5.

Seeing as U2 looks like it has the most polish and is the best overall package of any game(I think) this year it really wouldn't be too surprising to see it win goty from most gaming outlets including psxe.My buys for this year are probably going to be Uncharted 2(no kidding),GOW collection,LBP,Rachet & Clank(maybe) and GT5.

Concerning GT5, I ain't dissing it but has a racing game ever won GOTY over something with a wider appeal?

*as a side note, I feel like GT5 isn't getting much GOTY support because there isn't much hype for it right now and no one knows if it is coming out for sure this year...if it gets officially announced i'm sure it will start to be talked about more.

Of course people voted for Batman over GT5. Rocksteady has given us a Batman game that many never even dreamed would be this good. GT5 will be great no doubt, but it does not appeal to as wide an audience as Batman does. To say it was wrong to vote for Batman is short sighted. The big picture is that gamers want awesome games based on their favorite comic book characters. Not the drizzle that's been handed out for decades to make a quick buck off of a name.

If you honestly believe Batman appeals to a wider audience than Gran Turismo...I'll have to disabuse you of that notion right now. Sales alone are good enough to prove that GT has always been a blockbuster franchise worldwide.

It mostly depends on the territory.In Europe (Maybe Japan) GT5 would out sell any game (including Batman)on any system easily, in the US not so much.You underestimated GT5 appeal;I myself haven't bough a racing game since Super Monaco for the genesis but I'm anxiously waiting for GT5(Trailer was hot).

i agree with Alienange GT5 is strictly for racing game fans.
i never have been into GT5 its to unforgiving for my liking, if your not a 100% pro and drive like a pro it punishes you out the A$$.
only the elite can pick up GT5 and enjoy it to its fullest.
where batman appeals to anyone.
anyone can pick up, play it and enjoy it.
what does sales have to do with popularity?
what because a game sells better people would vote for it more in a poll?
im sorry but that sounds like xbot mentality to me.

Batman doesn't appeal to anyone, cause am not appealed yet after trying the demo.I'd pick GT5 over these comic super hero games anyday! That Unreal Engine textures on Batman dont appeal to me and he's quite fat, I expected him to look more like the Dark Knight movie. His arms are just too short and thick! I'm even forced to bash the game just cause its being compared to the awesome GT5.

I know a lot of people who bought a GT game. I also know a lot of people who think GT is unplayable. Most of the are the same people. I think a lot of people get fooled by the superb graphics, but are quickly let down by the frustrating game play.

@hezzron
GT is not unplayable, it's simply a game that requires you to learn how to race, and not an arcade racer. That fact that your friends can't be bothered to learn is no reflection on the game at all. If games are about doing things that we will very likely never do in real life, then GT5 is going to be a perfect example of a video game since very few of us will ever have the time, money or talent to race cars well, and build custom tuned rides to race with.

As for Batman, yes, it's all very nice, but doesn't appeal to me at all. GT5 on the other hand is a must buy.

Monday, September 21, 2009 @ 5:14:29 PM

@ Ben - A lot of reviewers point to sales numbers as some magical reason why a game is good. Your Poll however was simply based on peoples opinions and Batman scored higher than GT5. Therefore more people who visit your site feel stronger about Batman as GotY than they do GT5. Why you call them out saying their vote was "just wrong" doesn't seem justified one bit.

@ NiteKrawler - I was talking about the years of Batman drizzle.

@ Scarecrow - Don't bet on what I know.

@ hezzron73 - The playability of GT5 is akin to that of MS Flight Simulator. More sim than game. Doesn't mean people don't like that.

I agree, I'm tired of the COD franchise its been overused and having a new one every year is very annoying. COD has become "a way to make a cheap buck" what they have upgraded just isn't enough some of the perks are cool but its still all of the same stuff. The game is in no way innovative. And imo not worth $65.

1. Demon Souls
2. Uncharted 2
3. Gran Turismo 5
4. Modern Warfare 2
5. GT psp
6. maybe Eyepet
7. maybe Batman

as you can see, if the game is an RPG, or it has a deep multiplayer mode, then it's a guaranteed purchase for me. the maybes are just probably rentals i guess.

but who knows i'll probably only afford 2 games out of the top 5 this year :(

I've played Batman:AA for 5 times now. Crazy as it may be, this is due to the fact that there is "bug" in-game that prevents me from collecting all the tape interviews. I managed to do so in my 5th try and surprisingly, the game doesn't bore me one bit. Excellent game I might add but GOTY?

As for Uncharted 2, a lot may seem skeptical but I'm pretty sure once they get their hands on it and play the game, the melody would sync up and we'll have an orchestra playing "GOTY".

MW2 (on the other hand *sigh)only has sales to match up.

I fluctuated between 6-9 and 10+, but settled on the latter, including PSN games. In actuality, I may not buy any myself, but between my upcoming birthday and Xmas, I'll be responsible for many games being purchased.

However, unlike many here, I'll be getting mostly last year's games. My list of probables:
Fallout 3 GOTY
Silent Hill: Homecoming
Valkyria Chronicles
MLB The Show (08 or 09)
LEGO Indiana Jones
Dead Space
Tomb Raider: Underworld
Fat Princess
R&C Quest For Booty
Flower

and, if I can get them at a discount:
Killzone 2
inFAMOUS
Cuboid
PJ Monsters
Siren

Oh, and I'll probably break down and get Uncharted 2 like I did last year with LBP.

This year's great games, I'll enjoy next year.

p.s. I'm really not enjoying the ODST ads, and not because it's Halo. I often listen to podcasts when I browse on my PS3 and the repetitive intrusive audio has made that impossible tonight. I know you guys need to make a buck, but your ads usually aren't aversive as on other sites.

Ben its simple, people voted for Batman AA over GT5 cause they doubt GT5 will release this year, this tempts more folks to ignore it when voting.
I voted for Uncharted 2 cause we all know it'll be out next month, so of course Uncharted wins.

One more thing after watching the new trailer on PSN, wow! Uncharted 2 I personally believe, will be better than MGS4 and will remain the best game ever across all platforms UNTIL better ones come out!

I dont necessarily doubt that GT5 will hit this year, I just seriosuly doubt that the majority of publications/gaming authourities will give it GOTY. I should add that I am a HUGE Gran Turismo fan too. I bought a PS3 instead of Xbox 2 years ago, mostly for GT5 and MGS4.

Somebody mentioned a yr when a publication gave a GT game the GOTY award. I think those days are past. Nowadays I dont think a racer will sweep GOTY. It'll have to be a FPS or an actiony game. It'll go to MW 2, and some people will give it to U2.

Systemax (Tiger Direct), who also bought up the remainder of CompUSA when it gave up the ghost, bought up the Circuit City properties to run as another online store (I guess because Tiger Direct has such a cruddy reputation???). I don't think they're planning to re-open any physical CCs like they did a few CompUSAs, though.

I have the beta & I must say this is shaping up to be GOTY easily. That's not to say there aren't any other contenders, but I think it's a game that has GREAT potential!

this is a race between MW2 and Uncharted 2. if you match the review criteria with these games uncharted 2 would win hands down it really is that good. i know some sites have leaked reviews and other have embargo's but this could be the higgest scoring game on metacritic full stop. i luved the way gameradars review could only pick to bad things. Some enemys were a bit hard but still fun and that the game had to end. flawless in delivery and monsterous. i kinda expected IGN to give 9.5 as they probably marked it down for those 2 issues. I really dont like the modern warfare 2 UI it looks crowed and from the videos seen of recent events it seem that the screen is so much crowded with information it makes it hard to see what your doing. Give me drake goodness anyday besides i could speand decades in the cinema mode alone. just ask en how many awesome screenshots i sent him to enter the MAG beta competition.

by the way tanner 1 trine is pretty awesome. i got my batman platinum on saturday. plat no 20. yay!!!!. those combat challenges took awhile. it just nailing it down to that perfect run i just pressing square and triangle and tried to keep track of bad guy movement. also use your special takedown combos moves as soon as to hit you 5x,10x,15x multiplyer. it worked a treat for me. and dont forget to double tap R2 for quick shot ultra bat claw as it help stun guys straight from the off.

U2 is shaping up amazingly, It has a tremendous chance for game of the year. I have too many games I really want for Q4 like, BorderLands, Uncharted2, Tekken6, Assassins Creed 2, R&C, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, GT5, Katamari Forever, and a used MW2. I'm a bit excited closer to Xmas because my brother is importing the Jap version on FFXIII so I'll get to see that in action much earlier.

This year is a seriously difficult year for games, there are far too many good ones coming....

GT PSP,
GT5,
Uncharted 2,
Ratchet & Clank - A Crack in Time,
Afrika,
Eyepet,
LBP for PSP
Tekken 6 (probably on PS3),
Motor Storm Arctic...for PSP,
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (probably),

...and just to continue into next year (note how RPG heavy the list becomes)...

Tales of Vesperia,
Star Ocean 4
Final Fantasy XIII,
Heavy Rain,
Valkyria Chronicles for PSP (unless it arrives during 2009, in which case I'll get it this year),
Resonance of Fate,

...and a few catch up purchases...

Crimson Gem Saga,
Wipeout Pulse,
Monster Hunter Freedom etc...

I am going to be broke, but busy.

Nobody's planning on picking up Brutal Legend? Poor Tim Schafer.

Edit: only one person?

i dont think Unchrtd2 will do. Think. the amount of hype modern warfare 2 will surely take home goty. although, i will love unchrtd2 over mw2, U2 just wont beat mw2. it will however, be awesome, and possibly the second best officially.

Uncharted 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (X360)
God of War Collection

Considering all of the games I still have in my backlog, these games will be the only ones I'll be buying. I might even hold off on MW2 if Uncharted's multiplayer is as good as I think it will be. Might wait for MAG and compare it to MW2 before making my choice.

Hype can be one thing but the question is can MW2 deliver, I know all of you COD geeks will already say yes without knowing but the true deserved GOTY is Uncharted2. Of course the critics are more inclined to make a multiplat game GOTY. COD games are just recycling the same mechanics, new little tweaks is not going to cut it here. They need to evolve as a game and I don't see that happening anytime soon. So be satisfied every year with basically the same game over and over and over and over again, that's fine but you will get bored of it. That's how COD works.
