Stop arguing people, this is one hell of an awesome line-up. Braid, Gta 4, Fallout 3, MGS 4, NHL 09, Left 4 Dead, No More Heroes... Thats not even all of them. If those where the only games to have come out that year it would have been a success.
i really dont know why the console company is so eager to move to next generation console because of its graphics then tell me why they cannot make a game just good as this its not about the graphics its about the gameplay just like this
totally love this game! maybe MGS4 is my the best gaming experience in this generation, Hope Kojima is making MGS5 right now... forget about the psp games and bring a PS3 game!
I HAVE to get this game! I've beat the first three games, in a row, and I'm just . . . dying to finish the series! I don't really care about the handheld MGS games, because i think they're more of just something extra, that they decided to add to it all. But the consoles games are the most incredible video games ever made!
Its a must have Dark... Ive played through it 5 times. One of the greatest games EVER....if you're into Metal Gear
Personally, I think Grand Theft Auto IV should've won. Well, that's just me. I have a 360, so I can't & haven't played Metal Gear Solid 4... It actually looks pretty good... I should've bought a Playstation 3!
The Consoles Fanboy see something too high, in my opinion, MGS4 just fine in the story, but the gameplay sucks, and didn't have replay value,,,, & BTW exclusive games, also not always good, just the Consoles Fanboy who always say like that. Please open your eyes,, yes your eyes,, morons..
I was soo angry when they basically neglected Brawl in this whole thing! Brawl was simply unmatched, and one of my favourite games that year.
@ Carminesqueez how can argue that mgs4 didnt deserve being GOTY because it was an exclusive than you off mentioning L4D. You're just going back on your logic. And GTA IV wasn't great. I didnt care about it until last month to finish it and i got that game day one. It was like every other gta. and it actually took out a lot. it was boring
I knew once I saw MGS4 on the list it would win due to its outstanding game series history and graphics. If you haven't played 1 to 3 don't bother with it because you will be confused with the story. It's a story from 1 to 4. And not just individual gamestory telling.
i start this game like 8 months ago....but only advance at laughing octupus boss...i stop playing there...is a fantastic game...i dont want to finish im....its ridiculous...but true---I LOVE MGS4
I think MGS4 deserved it.....I've never played it...but it looks really, really good. From what they've said and what I've heard, it just sounds amazing. The Japanese make some good games don't they :)
Carminesqueez This isn't the "Game that Everyone played" award. This is the "Best game of the year" award. The one that was the best, no matter how many people played it. MGS4 won because it was the best game of the year.
gta 4 should of won i dont have ps3 like carmensqueez said and cause u can jack lots of cars and its fun
This game deserved the award, easily. It's not just an accomplishment when it comes to video games, it's a landmark title simply in terms of how a story can be told. I never felt that I was taken out of MGS4's world, or that what I was experiencing at any given moment in the game wasn't downright incredible. MGS4 is the best title of 2008, and one of the best games ever made.
imo, GTA IV > MGS.. nothing against MGS but the reason i said GTA IV is it was available on all 3 platforms. MGS was just out there for PS3. yes it was a great game. but how can it be game of the year, when other gamers didn't had the chance to play it because they don't have PS3... so it should be GTA imo. if they wouldnt agree for GTA due to problems it had, then i guess L4D maybe. The point is, you cant pick a game as game of the year when most gamers did not had the chance to play it.
