2005 Reader Awards

PSX Extreme's
2005 Reader Awards

Who says the awards season drags on too long? We've only managed to draw it out a week! To bring our yearly awards to a close we turn the floor over to you, the reader. We asked for your top PS2 and PSP games of 2005, and proving that great minds think alike, you mostly agreed with our selections. Without further ado, let's see what your favorite games from last year were.

PS2 Game of the Year:
God of War (SCEA)
PSX Extreme Review Score: 9.1

It wasn't unanimous by any means, but for the most part the members of our forum agreed that God of War was the best game of 2005. Here's what they had to say about David Jaffe's masterpiece:

Ryan H: God of War was easily the best PS2 game to come out this year, one of the best action games ever made and one of the best PS2 games of all time. The combination of stunning graphics, compelling music and exciting combat and puzzle solving gameplay, set in the world of ancient, mythological Greece, created a unique and amazing experience that has set a new benchmark for action-adventure games.

Voice: Most definitely the best PS2 game I played all year has to be God of War. It was like Prince of Persia on steroids....and despite all the whoop-da-dee-doo surrounding GTA:San Andreas and its hidden sex game....God Of War had one that wasn't hidden....and no one even MENTIONED IT!!! Aside from that, the controls are spot on, the graphics are some of the best I've seen on any system, and you just feel like an all around BADASS playing that game.

Linkin Park 47: You know, I only played the hydra level of God of War (came in a demo) and I am already ready to say that it is the game of the year. It was so flipping smooth and well done! I am going to buy the game ASAP.

Mista: God of War does deserve that honor on EVERY GAME SITE & MAGAZINE OUT THERE!!!

So that's it. Our best and worst games of 2005 feature is now complete. Thanks to everyone that voted, sent emails, and discussed the awards in our forums. We're looking forward to a big year from Sony, not only with the release of the PS3, but we're anxious to see what second-gen PSP games are capable of as well. The PS2's final year in the spotlight should be a good one too, if games like Black and Final Fantasy XII have anything to say about it. Goodnight and goodbye!
