G4TV Awards: Uncharted 2 Dominates Competition
It was Uncharted 2's night this past weekend at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, scoring the top honors with Game of the Year and also netting Best PS3 Game and Best Graphics.
Well, if it's even possible, the game fared even better in G4TV's Best of 2009 Awards. Not only did Naughty Dog's masterpiece snag another Game of the Year win, but it also won awards for Best Animation, Best Writing, and Best Action/Adventure Game (Assassin's Creed II won this category at the VGAs). We very much liked to see inFamous as a Game of the Year nominee, although we still can't agree that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a better shooter than Killzone 2, which still stands head and shoulders above any other FPS this generation, in our opinion. See what you think about the rest of the winners and feel free to comment; we can't really see how Best RPG could go to Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story when up against Dragon Age: Origins and Demon's Souls but...well, we'll remedy such mistakes when our GotY Awards go live at the end of the year. Flower got another nod with an award for Best Soundtrack, and whatever praise that game receives is probably well deserved so we aren't gonna complain there.
But Chloe, my favorite new character of the generation, lost out to Eddie Riggs from Brutal Legend again. This category wasn't for best voice but for "Best New Character," but even so...I mean, Eddie Riggs is a bad-ass and I love metal but Chloe's my girl. Well, anyway. Uncharted 2 reigns supreme once again.
