Like I said in the forum: Autolog. Good call on the innovative system.

As expected Call of Duty. People when you keep voting for this stuff it makes the devs think that you dont want the genre to move forward.

I massively agree on this, although it does make me notice how crap other games sfx are now.

Blops game of the year? Pff
I find it hilarious that MW2 seems to have more players than it on Steam now. Great game eh?

If all you want is multiplayer action it's not so bad. And seemingly that's all the masses want. And the game companys don't want to innovate encase the game flops, so they are more than happy to keep dishing out the same crap with a different cover.

If like me you want a solid 1-player experience like Half-Life 2 then you silently curse every COD/Battlefield type game that releases. That said, Battlefield 3 does look ffing good so far..

CODBLOPS? Nevermind the bollocks.

It will, however, be rather interesting to se this/next years contestants, now that we have some games that might actually be really good coming out this year.

F1 2010 ? really? seriously?

That game was/is such a buggy heap it's untrue.
OK somewhere deep deep down in it's heart there might be the beginning's of a decent game, but for the most part, it's a pile with bugs galore.

I certainly didn't vote for it, and I doubt many BT'ers did. Who decides this stuff anyway?

I think the audio in Amnesia The Dark Descent was better. It was critical to creating the eerie atmosphere.

Have you played it? The multiplayer was surprisingly fun, bashing around with other cars and what not.

Just a terribly empty game when you start considering the singleplayer.

played single player, the actual mechanism for deciding when the car is scrapped wasn't very good so tossed it aside.

More like Game Award for Keeping Us Out of the Recession for Black Ops

I've not played Fallout New Vegas, is it a strategy game?

Congratulations to the winners of the Ones to Watch award. I thought it looked like an interesting competition, but couldn't work out why anyone who can make a decent game in 6 weeks by themselves would be interested in the job offers that came as a prize...

Can't believe the destruction in BFBC2 didn't win it Game Of The Year instead of CODBLOPS....just another typical FPS

It's not their top prize. Top Prize was Best Game which was Mass Effect 2.

I'm glad BC2 got the audio award but why the flip did it not get the multiplayer award too?!
frontline 18th March 2011, 08:31 Quote
BC2 Audio was good, even if the different settings in game just seemed to ramp up the amount of reverb. They did a great job on the audio for Medal of Honor's multiplayer too.
leveller 18th March 2011, 08:37 Quote
Disagree on Hot Pursuit. It was a short-lived bit of fun. There was no ability to communicate with other drivers (PC version) and the game grew stale very quickly. My choice would have been BC2.

Mass Effect 2? Good show, glad they went with that.

SMG2 for gameplay? Oh dear...

These awards are pretty much a joke...not surprised black ops won because it has the most amount of players thus will get more votes, all this does is swell the heads of the suited clowns running Activision.

This just enforces their view that they can charge more for a game which delivers a lot less, release a game whenever they want even if it has problems and just release patches to fix them one by one, and just produce a clone of the same game year on year.

They need to change the title to make it realistic...game of the year without beating any other game on storyline, innovation, audio, or gameplay? hmm right

It wasn't Game of the year..

It was GAME (A UK games company) Award of 2010. In lots of award ceremonys you get the sponsors giving out awards (Such as the normal Bafta's it's Orange I believe?).

Like a people's choice award, not Game of the year.

what gets me is the fact that a lot of people were very dissapointed with cod blops but still insisted on playing it and trying to rope everyone else into getting it despite the fact that they dont like that much and then flame me for getting reach, a game that i enjoyed
