PSXE Poll Update: God Of War III Will Be Last One Standing

It's a tough question, to be sure. What will win our coveted Game of the Year Award when all is said and done in 2010?

Well, although Gran Turismo 5 put up a good fight, the majority believe we'll give our highest honor to the unbelievable God of War III. It's not a bad pick, either, as it certainly holds the highest review score for the year thus far, and only GT5 has a realistic shot of equaling or surpassing that number, right? Well, we have high hopes for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, too, don't forget... Behind GT5 was Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar's awesome GTA-in-the-Wild-West blockbuster that we just loved. Lagging behind in fourth but still making a solid showing was Quantic Dream's evolutionary Heavy Rain, which, at the very least, deserves to be nominated. Of course, we haven't made up our minds yet, especially with several huge titles on the immediate horizon. As for Call of Duty: Black Ops...well, who knows?

Speaking of the Treyarch/Activision mega-blockbuster, it comes out this week and we'd like you to make another prediction- what are we gonna give it? Let's just rule out anything below a 6 right now; while we never count our chickens before they've hatched, we just refuse to believe Black Ops is a poor product from an objective standpoint. That being said, we do try to be as accurate and as in-depth as possible, as all our loyal readers well know by now. You can trust us not to be blinded by the CoD lovefest but you can also trust that we'll give quality its just due. So...what say you?

But if you know that CoD doesn't cater to the sp gamer, why would you buy it? If you won't buy it, then why complain?

How about this BikerSaint? How about you buy Black Ops and look me up. We'll go online together and have a blast. Then you'll see what makes it fun for me and maybe, just maybe, I'll see why you hate it. Or better yet. You'll come to enjoy it too.

Win win no?

Good post Alien.
Guys, you gotta understand that this is a multiplayer game. It's the online gaming that *is* cod. You may like it or not, but at least try to understand the concept of the genre.
Your whining is like me saying "Awww I bet there's hardly ANY shooting in Heavy Rain 2 either. You can't even run in that damn game".

Regarding the review I predict that psx is gonna give the game approximately 50% of the praise they would give the exact same game was it platform exclusive.

GoW3 was spectacular.

I'm curious what the criteria is for GotY at PSXe.Does GotY represent a mixture of gaming innovation and elite components that broadens our definition of what video gaming is today?

Or is it more of an indicator of a game's total value and excellence despite it being less than a truly breakthrough title in game design. If it's the former, than I'd suggest Heavy Rain or Red Dead (gathered from my impressions from people's responses and reviews in general). But if it's the latter I'd suggest Gran Turismo 5 or possibly GoW3.

As for the current poll. I voted 8.0-8.4
It's not IW this time, which works against it because the B-team hasn't proved itself as the trailblazer for the series. Plus, it's a franchise that has been milked, what? 7x now?
I'm sure what's there will be quality overall, but I don't think it's going to change the way we think about the series.

That's probably for the best.

I just like to maintain that when it comes to GotY the game that is most noteworthy in design is also the most respectable and the healthiest for the gaming industry.
That is, I look at something like CoD and think, sure it's high quality but is having a year after year cookie-cutter game format that scores well in it's conventions going to stagnate consumer interests into thinking that the best in gaming entertainment is still a military online shooter that hasn't deviated much from it's original formula over the years?

To semi-liken this to GoW3. It's presentation is unbelievable and I think it should get high marks for that. So unlike CoD, I think GoW3 is more of a worthy contender for GotY because there's nothing out there this year of it's type that matches it in that department. But it's the format of the game that stays my hand from vouching for it. It's a very solid well designed action game, but it doesn't venture too far outside of the norm of it's genre class. Basically, I think GoW3 will be remembered most for it's visceral presentation and amazing attention to visual detail rather than broadening the understanding of what quality game design is today. For this reason, I'm more inclined to think that the prestigious goty title may land on a game other than GoW3.


This fuels into a growing suspicion of mine that if games that continue to get elite recognition, even goty, mostly for having amazing graphics and expensive presentational prowess, the industry may be rewarding most the very thing that will pigeon hole the industry of PS3 and 360 gamer into redundant safe bets that use recycled gameplay conventions under the guise of a new sparkling dress.

Just a concern which may, or may not, be true.

I voted GOWIII as well, I had my reservations but I know it blew you guys away. Then again, you are both car nuts and GT5 is likely to shine through more, not because you are biased but because you are in a position to appreciate all the effort behind the production.

I think The CoD will get between 8.5 and 8.9. The franchise is aging and is really lagging behind more up-to-date titles.

Heavy Rain got my vote. Definitely the best story and best looking game of the year. What it may have lacking in actual gameplay it more than made up for with the emotional rollercoaster ride it took you on.

And I'm not even going to talk about CoD. That franchise just needs to hurry and go away. A new one every year is just way too much.

A lot of sites like IGN give it inflated scores to keep those publishers happy.

In return they get exclusive interviews, news, teasers, etc.

One's experience of the game counts more than any review.

Metacritic and gamestats are always spot on and very equal in average score. You can't argue facts, a high score on those sites means you have made a good game. period.

You can argue about being the best, but search for any the game of the year in whatever year and look it up in metacritic and gamestats highscores, you will see that particular game also is top notch there.

definetly should be heavy rain.
not only did it create its own genre.
not only was it the first game ive played this gen where i can say ive never played this before.
its also the most emotional roller coaster ride you will ever go through!
nothing has ever sucked me into the story so much, not even MGS4, assassins creed or infamous, nothing sucked me into the story as much as heavy rain!
if that, and that alone, ignoring everything else, does not deserve GOTY than nothing does!

GOW3 certainly should not be GOTY, and i doubt many places will give it GOTY.
technological masterpieces do not make GOTY contenders, fun gripping games do.
GOW3 did neither of those!
hell im enjoying ghost of sparta a sh*t load more than i did GOW3!
when you find yourself saying your enjoying a PSP game more than a ps3 game theres a serious problem!

I voted Heavy Rain. The game had it all: Innovation, Story, Graphics, Immersion, Replay Value, Production Values. Barring that, I'll say that it has to go to another exclusive. I can't deny GoW III's magnificence, but GT5 seems like it will wind up being the more polished production. If not, it would have to be AC:Brotherhood.

As for the new poll, I'm going to guess that you are actually going to rate it more highly than you did MW2, simply because of murmurs that it is longer, the story seems more mind-bending, and from what I gather, the online portion can't exactly be any more broken. So, maybe about a 9.2. Conversely, the engine has aged, and it doesn't appear to be doing anything much different in terms of the gameplay, so maybe 8.7... No, I'll vote higher.
Peace.

When considering GotY, don't forget about how Rockstar has been supporting Red Dead Redemption through DLC as well as just being a standout game! So far they have released FIVE pieces of DLC, two of which were free, and one that added more to the single-player experience with Undead Nightmare (Ben, we know how much you enjoy seeing SP DLC).

I really hope GT5 will blow me away and will drop my jaw to the floor. I am really desperate for a new top notch racer since Dirt 2.

If GT5 really turns out to be sex on a disc then I cannot see any game take GOTY away from it. I hope so, I really hope it will be that good.

Really enjoyed GoW3, so much so that I felt had to put the time in to Platinum it :)

As for COD:BO, I'm anticipating just shy of a 9 (similar to last years MW2 review).

Yes, I'm buying it (managed to nab it for just under £30), but again I'll reserve judgment for it until I've played it. I'm hoping that I enjoy it more than MW2 (though since I've read that it's been glitched already I hope it's not another 1 patch-per-week title).

As usual, I'll come here for an unbiased, straight-up review as opposed to all other sites that will do doubt sing it's praises from up high.

As far as that Black Op's thing, I don't care what score you give it, or even if you review it at all. Wasn't the last one so glitched up that they had to re-launch it a couple weeks after it came out, yet everybody still gave it 9's and 9.5's? Whatever.

Heavy Rain or God of War 3 should be the leading contenders for GOTY everywhere, and that's including multiplatform.

Heavy Rain deserves it in my book based it's genre creating experience.

God of War III was a really good game but in all honestly forgotten after it was played and finished.

Til this day Red Dead Redemption is being spoken about, and highly since it came out. I never played the game; I have it on it's way as I type. My votes on Red Dead Redemption.

I would give the award to Gran Turismo 5 though, that is if it steals the win in the very last minutes of the 4th quarter...literally.

Heavy Rain is a great game but fell under the radar fast. Especially with all the DLC being "canceled/postponed" which practically buried the thing. Damn shame too.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and COD: Black Ops I'm sure will be great games. Yet like Will Smith is a great actor but still not authentic enough to win an Oscar...neither should these games be given Game of the Year.

Black Ops gets a 9.5 in game play but a 7 in authenticity. In fact, a lot of games need to be penalized in ratings, scores, etc. if they can't come up with an original idea. Plain and simple.

Think about it. A lot of people bashed on Fallout: New Vegas because everyone felt it was just an expansion to Fallout 3. F all of you. Why isn't the same thing said about all these FPS sequels? Enough said.

Also, I think God of War III deserves a GOTY, I really enjoyed it and played it several times over.

Or you could just give Uncharted 2 another GOTY, just because it's so awesome.
Uncharted 2, so awesome it get's GOTY's the year after it got GOTY's.

Also, gametrailers' GOTY will probably go to Black Ops, so it will recieve GOTY, PS3 GOTY and XBOX GOTY... like last year with MW2...

Red Dead is the most enjoyable game, god of war was the best looking game and heavy rain was the most original game. All the shooters are just shooters and gt5 deserves its own reward for being the most delayed game (I still hope its a great game).

GoW3 was fun but not a GotY. GotY should supply gamers with a little more than 10 hours of gameplay. How can you give GotY to a game that only lasts a few hours? There's more to gaming than high-res decapitation. A great experience, but not a game that one goes back to more than once or twice. Therefore, not a GotY.

As for the next CoD, you'll definitely score it higher than MW2. For some strange reason you'll feed into the IW hate that is prevalent on this site.

Length has absolutely no bearing on quality. None.

The sooner gamers can figure this out, the sooner the first question will be, "How good is it?" as opposed to the stupid "How long is it?"

True, but in reviewing/assessing a game sure longevity has got to come into play.

Consequently, for a goty, it should have a good amount of playtime.

I suspect that's feature which is factored in to why Fallout3/demon souls have taken the title in recent years

Only quality comes into play. If the experience is too short or too long - a rushed story as opposed to meaningless scenes and actions to extend a story - it will impact the quality. In only that way does length matter.

If a game is 2 hours long and one feels satisfied and fulfilled upon completing it, and the vision of the developer is appropriately seen, the score will never be lower (at least here at PSXE) just because it didn't last longer.

Surely length (as in "size") must have *some* weight into the consideration? If not then theoretically a small psn game could (and maybe even should) win your goty-award?

As for me I'm not in the length-mafia. Simply cause I spend a ridiculous long time on all games that manages to catch my attention. BioShock was a 30+ hours (if not 40+) experience to me. I guess that says it all.

I predict an 8.6 for a score.

It's also be interesting to see how many user reviews pop up for it.

The only glitchy parts of the CoD titles seem to be in multiplayer, and it takes a while to find the exploits, so I doubt anyone will review it accurately so soon out of the gate. Same happened with MW2. If reviewers knew of half the glitchiness in MW2's multiplayer, it would have had a lower average score, I think.

If i ever get early warnings about a game's shortness, i just make sure i play it on the hardest difficulty (and no, that doesn't mean i die every two seconds). It just means that i have to master the game, and figure out and appreciate the gameplay, instead of mindlessly blowing through it.

That gave me about 12-15 hours on my initial playthrough on GOWiii. I played it again on medium and the Olympus Challenges for additional trophy collection, which gave me another 6-10 hours. And i'm sure it's a worth a couple more playthroughs in the not too distant future.

GoW3 length wasn't a problem , I take 8 hours of awesome GOW over Castlevania los any day of the week (and Castlevania los is a great game) my only problem was Zeus battle...come on! when you have a more epic brawl with Hercules you know something its wrong.

btw there's some videos of the deleted scenes (and one puzzle) of how that battle was really going to be....such a shame that not happened in the game :(.

Ben the reason this games length bothers me is because unlike other action games there is no difference (other then difficulty) in the replays so no replay value. Shams you can't play the hardest difficulty your first time through, it's locked and playing through the hardest two difficulties only took about 6 hours each. Oxvial they cut alot out of this game that would of made it goty, I felt cheated when i was finished chaos mode...
