After MW2's poor story and gameplay. And the online which is the only good part of it not working. I think I can see AC2 winning the award now.

Kitkat, I really wish that would be true. But i have a feeling that all the non intelligent mainstream children will still make Mw2 the winner here. I strongly hope for Mw2 to die a slow and painful death that may include some kind of poisons http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'd agree if Madden and NCAA wasn't just fodder for the mindless masses. That and the fact that I cannot stand football.

So, hopefully, you're joking.

Last game of the year was Fallout 3 correct? I thought it kind of deserved the spot. But I swear to god, I dont have Mw2 btw, but if what I hear about this online crap and bad storyline then I would be shocked if it won just because it was an anticpated title. Uncharted 2 and AC2 is easy for the spot cause Uncharted 2 has the best online and good story and gameplay while AC2 has well...cause its just AC2 lol...

I think AC2 as a clear winner, but they are also gonna shoot off Left 4 dead 2, but it are also like AC1 you are just gonna do the same thing over and over again. AC2 1 place Left 4 Dead 2 2 place Modern Warfare 2 3 place :-)

You can never be so sure..

But, despite my having not played the game yet, my initial impressions say that AC2 is a likely contender.

Uncharted 2 is only for PS3 though. Usually GOTY is multi-console game. As well, despite COD's weaker storyline, it still got some solid reviews so don't doubt it. My bet is on AC 2 or MW2, unless there's a surprise twist. Those tend to sometimes happen.

Well, after playing mindless hours of MW2... I'm hooked. Story isn't... crap, it's just really really short. And I don't know what people are saying about the multiplayer, it's probably one of the best out there. Well, I think it is, minus the screaming 11 year olds.

The game I'm honestly rooting for is Dragon Age: Origins. The story is very well paced and the gameplay is incredibly satisfying especially for someone who loved KOTOR. Although, I assume game of the year will inevitably turn out to be MW2
or preferably Uncharted 2(between the two anyways). I'm curious as to how anyone could have taken that first post seriously though? I'm positive if all of anyone's posts were like that they wouldn't last more than a few days here.

First of all, Game of the Year is not a universal award. Many different agencies, companies, review sites, and award organizations have "Game of the Year" awards and different games win them from different places for different reasons. If you want to say who won the most last year, though, for example, it would be LittleBigPlanet who won like 30 Game of the Year awards + Interactive Software awards + BAFTA, etc.

This year, I think multiplayer GOTY will go to Left 4 Dead 2, single-player will go to Uncharted 2, and MW2 and AC2 will be runner-ups in those categories.

AC2's single player is not the level of polish that Uncharted 2 is at, and Left 4 Dead 2's multiplayer was already heralded last year for being absolutely incredible and addictive, so since it's even better this year I can see it winning.

Agreed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif but I think we should wait to play AC2. A lot of people thought MW2 was surely going to be a perfect game and it's got some flaws...aparently I can't really judge something I haven't played myself, maybe actually playing AC2 will surprise us, I can recall countless times I see a game with a low score and ends up being really good

MW2, AC2, Uncharted 2 or Left 4 Dead 2 (a handful of sequels, eh?).
Which one will it be is actually going to depend on the people who choose the GOTY.

Reviews are SUBJECTIVE, so it's IMPOSSIBLE that one game is going to be "the best of the best of the best". I, for example, feel no attraction to Left 4 Dead 2 (seriously, fighting hordes of zombies over and over and over and over.... and over again?) or Modern Warfare 2 (Infinity Ward doesn't deserve it, not after what they've done to the PC version), so if I was to choose the GOTY it would be either Uncharted 2 or AC 2. I haven't played AC 2 and I'm in about 40% of progress in Uncharted 2 atm so I can't decide.

The only thing that is sure is that all these games will sell in BIG numbers. Especially MW2 and AC2.

It's a cross between Uncharted and Assassin's Creed II for me. Tried UC and loved it, though I have to say... I will be addicted to ACII when it comes out, and vanish until I beat the storyline.

AC2 won't win, i'm not saying that ac2 is bad but when it is compared to uncharted i think uncharted would win, and because of the huge amount of fans and people who bought it MW2 would win. The guy above me MW2 story is not awesome as the first one's storlyline but there is alot of plot twists and there is more fun sequences like when you are in the fevela you fail to grab onto the edge of the roof and then you have to outrun the miltia and then you grab onto a helicopter ladder, very cinematic and the online is very fun. Ac2 will probably have a better story but the people care more about how much you will get for 60 bucks.

I've been thinking that MW2 would get the award, but now after hearing more about the game I really doubt it. Uncharted 2 is the most likely contestant to win, as everyone has been saying its fricken crazy awesome in so many ways. the runner up will probably be ac2. I'm hoping ac2 will get some awards in best of the genre awards, which is likely (like perhaps best soundtrack or something like that, or adventure game, or best renaissance free running assassin game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif ) If Uncharted 2 didn't come out this year ac2 would probably be the winner. but I think some other nominees will be batman: AA, Borderlands and Halo ODST. all three which I don't care too much about...

AC2 FTW!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If single player accounted improvement from the first game, then MW2 would be out, as the campaign was much shorter, along with the fact that the "oh crap" moments in the game are overused. Uncharted 2, while I haven't played the game as I'm a 360 guy, I've heard that it's a better game than the first. Will have to wait 5 more days to see about AC2, but from what I'm hearing, it will be a massive improvement. Ubisoft, don't let me down! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ODST, I doubt it will get anywhere beyond thinking about it, as the game was a letdown for a lot of people.

Multiplayer-wise, MW2 is a massive improvement. That game improves upon everything, but if you're a noob to the game, you're done, you're going nowhere online.

Overall, I think it will be a tie between UC2, AC2, and MW2 (apparently the 2nd game in a franchise does well). I would have to wait until AC2 comes out to cast my vote between MW2 and AC2.

Well , if you want my opinion , ACII should take the first place in GOTY because of the FREEDOM in doing ANYTHING you want with what you have , and the variety to do so. I actually don't know why people like Call of Duty ... it's a very specific game ... get your weapon go to a restricted map and do as you command. No choice to refuse , nothing compared to the FREEDOM of ACII, and for a gamer being restricted ... well i guess you could say it's not the best. I haven't played Uncharted 2 so i can't compare ACII with it , but i have a feeling that ACII will suprise us , in the good way , when it comes to GOTY.

hmmm, I see it the same way as you do, about freedom in the game, but sometimes people want to be told what to do and when in a game. I have a friend that hates open world games because he can't just continue the action when he wants too, instead he has to drive/walk/etc. to the next mission or phase of the game. call of duty puts you right in the action quickly. no waiting around. I like open world games soo much better (as long as its implemented well) but thats also just my opinion, I do enjoy Call of Duty at times though as well. so it might be obviously better to us, but the game has to be rated and compared against games of its own genre and style, so you can't compare ac2 with a fps.

11-12-2009, 07:27 AM
I absolutely understand you mate. The thing is , in my opinion and from my personal life's experience , is that people who play games like CoD because they don't like free roaming , are not even "Gamers". I know this might sound weird... and i am sure a lot would disagree (i'm always expressing my opnion) but GOTY title should be given to the game that most "Gamers" like and not just people, because they can't actually judge a game. After all , it won't be kids playing ACII but mostly teenagers and adults, but CoD will be played by anyone, like counter strike. I know a 6 year old boy who plays Counter Striker...

Well obviously this game attracts a lot of people. Although i do not agree with the small age because they are unable to understand the plot , and so they play just for "blood". Which of course is one of teh best features in this game , but it's not the point. I don't say you shouldn't play it ... just remember when you grow up a bit to replay all of AC games so that you can better understand what is really going on. We don't want people to think AC is for sikkos do we? :P

"Deserve it"??? Even if you could imagine... Assassin's Creed 1 was ok , lacked of variety and poor mission structure. In ACII they not only fixed that , but also put a LOT more stuff... in Call of Duty series especially from Modern Warfare they did nothing special , just change the storyline. NO improvements! It really deserves it only for the name and for the previous succeses, not because they did a good job on it and worked hard about it.

Wow, people in this thread talk as if MW2 is only selling because of it's name.
the majority of the hype around it (before the game was even shown) was because of the name and the majority of people reviewing it always bring up how good the franchise is.

certain games sell because of a name, CoD/MW2 is one of those game's. it doesn't sell for what is in the game as the mindless drones will go out and buy the game even if they are told nothing about it because of the last game.

for a good example of this look at the console's, the majority of the people who had a PS1 moved onto a PS2, the majority of people who had a Xbox got a 360, the majority of people who have the PS3 had a PS2. thing'from big brands sell because they liked what came before it not because the new game is good. looks at GTA or metal gear games.

With that logic you could say people will buy AC2 because of AC1. With that logic you could say that about any sequel game, or any game that came from a developer with a reputation. I'm sure mindless drones will also buy AC2 because of AC1. Hell, I would have still bought it without learning about AC2 at all.

If MW2 gets GotY I think it would deserve it. If anything, it's hype works against the GotY award, due to that fact it might not live up to all of the hype.

Actually most of the people i know AREN'T buying Assassin's Creed 2 because of the repetitiveness of the last game and they're all too lazy to go look up AC2. But they ARE buying COD MW2 because they liked the last game, even though i have pointed out to them that number 2 is just a rehash, which they have admitted.

caswallawn_2k7
11-12-2009, 05:08 PM
the point is CoD is a much bigger franchise that has been running much longer meaning it has picked up more mindless drones. they just need to make their version of the saturn/N64 to show how many people are using the franchise for anything more than it's past name.

if the CoD franchise made a rubbish game the next game would sell terrible no matter how good they could show the next game. AC may be a sequel so will take some momentum from the original, but the fact is not everywhere said AC1 was that great and it did have quite prominent fault's that would put people off.

AC2 has probably made more of it's sales from showing off the fact they have enhanced the parts of the game where the problems were, they are already saying the pre-orders are up 80% on the original game, also if you pay attention to the forum's there have been a number of people here asking about AC2 who never played the original game.

Some people should come out of denial.
AC2 will probably not win Game Of The Year.
It MIGHT just win 'best storyline' since MGS isn't out this year, but who knows.

As far as the ultimate game of the year:
Modern Warfare 2.
The game just hit 7 million copies on it's first day. 7 million!
I know some games that don't even sell 7 million *cough cough*.

Besides, Infinity Ward took everything from the first game and injected some PCP into it. It's a hellride front to back and despite being short and somewhat limited, the game packs a hard punch times 7 million.

yeah MW2 is a dead ring.....OH WAIT FIFA 10 is the fastest selling game in history in all countries, and thats more than 50....so booyah...its fifa 10 for sure, just based on numbers since its been released fifa 10 has sold over 25 million units.

fifa 10 had over 500,000 preorders confirmed in october, and sold 3 million first day of european release, a month later in north and south America it added another 7 million.

based on the money its fifa 10

i want AC2 to win, but MW2 i think is gonna win.
the storyline isnt too bad...it was short, but the ending was pretty sweet.

THANKS. Even if this is an AC2 forum, spoilers are still spoilers... put a spoiler tag next time when you talk about the storyline of games.

I am definitely backing AC2 now. MW2 was shockingly average for what was being billed as the game of the decade, let alone year.

Its CoD4 with a map pack and some extra guns. However I have no faith in the gaming/review community, FPS games always win.

exactly, for what it was EXPECTED to be its actually quite a disappointment for some, but its still a good shooter, just not as good as people hoped.

I have hope in AC2 but I really don't care too much if it doesn't win many awards because its still going to get "Amolang's Flippin Game of the Flippin Year Award!" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

What do you expect? FPS's only can have so much variation. The gameplay is solid, what they added only improved on MW1's greatness. Yeah its not like groundbreaking but neither is AC2. Infact AC2's graphics are looking a bit shabby, but the story and setting more than makeup for it.. AC2 is my choice but i dont think it will win.

You may be right it didnt live up to all its hype, that being said its still probably the best shooter ever made. Gameplay wise.

I find it funny that people are saying AC2 when you haven't even played the game, then saying that MW2 is crap, and only thrived due to hype. Not that I expect anything else on an AC board, but, really now?

Anyway.. I'll toss my vote in for Uncharted 2.

We are not putting MW2 down, we are just putting our opinions out there. Most of us hope AC2 will win, but we all are pretty sure it won't. (and some of us have played the game)

btw, you should expect people to say ac2 is going to win. we are on the official ac forums after all... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I would absolutely love AC2 to win GoTY, but MW2 is looking like it's going to win. I personally boycotted the game after a lot of the stunts pulled by Infinity Ward and Activision, and did sign that petition. However, if you go look at that petition now, a lot of people that signed it are playing MW2, so that petition meant absolutely nothing. The game looks so good, but I promised to boycott it, so I'm staying with it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Why do people keep insisting that # of copies sold = quality?

It's the same mindset that made Activision millions on an overhyped product. "Everyone says it's gonna be awesome, so it must be true!!"

Lesson of life: The masses are ******ed.

trust me im with you there, if you wanna go on actual content my vote still remains, none cast, as nothing this year was amazing....

but based on money, Which really, makes all the decisions....come on. Fifa put down its competition, and basically every other game this year in sales, beat madden, which is huge for an ea game, produced in over 50 different languages...so, based on that, and the fact it has recieved only praise as " the best and only authentic football simulation ever" is enough for me to call that the smart money bet.

And really whom cares what those glorified urban outfitters employees on g-4 say anyways, they are such tools they are almost transparent, what do they watch diablo cody movies before each segment for inspiration?

and everything they say tells me they would vote for dragon age or ratchet and clank.

Bah to them, go grow up, i really do detest how they have made this zeitgeist of "video gamer" into this d bag college kid smart butt stereotype....how about the oxford educated polyglots, who actually want to see someone whom is gonna content on the actual games workings than what internet video can best be used to describe their undoubted consternation when trying to form an independent thought....

People generally value fame over quality. It's part of the entire "I need to be part of a group" mentallity. Being part of something makes most people happier than being surrounded by stuff that suits their tastes. Sad, but true.

I can't believe a set number of people are boycotting L4D2. I just played the demo (Literally, JUST.) and I have to say that it's an extremely fun game. They added SO MUCH more content, that's it would be sorta ridiculous to make it DLC. I might even buy it, after I play AC2 and try to get the first L4D...

In my opinion , you are absolutely right. There soooooo many FPS games , and CoD is just the most famous out there. Assassin's Creed is one of a kind :O ...
