THIS TIME ON V.G.A ACCORDING TO ME THE WINNER WOULD BE 1 OF THEM-

1.SAINTS ROW THE THIRD

2.UNCHARTED 3

3.GEARS OF WAR 3

4.CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS

5.INFAMOUS 2

6.DUKE NUKEM FOREVER

WHICH 1 ACCORDING TO U WILL WIN ?

A little early to tell, but Duke won't be winning many awards judging by the reviews and Black Ops came out last year. The other four sound possible though.

My vote goes to Portal 2.

Also, please turn off your CAPS LOCK key next time. Contrary to popular belief, it is not cruise control for cool, and just downright painful to read.

It's either Uncharted 3 or Gears of War 3 I assure you one of these 2 for sure

Unmentioned games in the list that also might win is : Battlefield 3 or Killzone 3

...I'm still trying to wrap my head around why Portal 2 isn't even on the list. It was an excellent sequel, and excellent game in its own right. Four years in the making, with top-notch everything. Top-notch writing, voice acting, level design, and atmosphere. I just don't even see how. OH WAIT, YOU DON'T GET TO RUN AROUND KILLING THINGS. I guess they can't nominate a game that wouldn't appeal to kiddies who would rather have a spoon-fed bloodfest than actually use their brain or have the mental capacity to appreciate some damn witty dialogue.

Except that's the problem, the VGA blokes are apparently too narrow-minded for games like Portal. Essentially, this thread is based around the nominations of a site that's anything but credible. Taking anything on Spike TV seriously? Really? (assuming this is the same "VGA" crap as the unfathomably lame and moronic awards show they throw every year)

Actually, I corrected myself in the post you replied to, heh. I think VGA (or V.G.A, whatever... the OP cited it) is the Video Game Awards on Spike friggin' TV.

Googled it and hey man they have rly good choices rly nice picks on games and studios awards and nominations . In addition, they do actually have a game of the year that isn't narrow minded, it's Resident Evil 4 for year 2005 it does have some many places in which u need to think alot

...and they're Spike TV. If we're talking about the same VGA.

95 on Metacritic. I don't see how Cawa Doody: Bwack Awps (81%) and a bunch of other cookie-cutter brown'n'bloom shooters can even compete. It's like the concept of artistry has been thrown out the window in favor of sending someone's skull and its contents in more directions at once. And this is just if we're going by Metacritic, which I'm usually against, but it's the closest thing to an objective standpoint as we're going to get on this subject.

Why you're usually against it man , they gave it a 95 and the Portal Still Alive a 90 , isn't that what you want everyone to realize? That the game deserves that score and should nominate to Game of the Year?

BTW Spike VGA did put once a game that needs a lot of thinking that is RE4 , it was Game of the Yewar 2005 , but ofcorse it doesn't need thinking as much as Portal but is a puzzled horror game...

P.S: what do u mean by"objective standpoint" ??

"Objective" as in a solid consensus and not just one particular site, magazine, TV station, or otherwise. Spike TV is about as credible as Maxim Magazine when it comes to video game judgment.
