Yeah I'm going to lock this down now. You may have genuinely intended this to be a productive GOTY related blog. But it just screams "trolling for lulz and comments!" too me.
 
The topic title is pretty provocative as it stands but the "fucking suck it" comment and the fact even though you've explained why you dislike Uncharted 2 (which is a perfectly reasonable stance to have, people need to accept it is your opinion) you've still pretty much gone out of your way to provoke people into an argument. And it seems you're enjoying watching it all unfold as well.
 
So just to clarify this isn't being locked because you aren't a big fan of Uncharted 2, this is being locked because you decided to hijack your own GOTY blog which could have been a productive topic and turn it into a thinly veiled attempt at bashing the game to rile up the fans. Had you not used such a provocative topic title and included some questionable responses and comments in this blog then I doubt people would be splitting hairs and getting angry at you. But as it stands it really does come across like you've gone out of your way to intentionally 'stir the pot' so to speak and that my good sir is not acceptable here :)
 
Locked.

I am going to explain to you guys why Uncharted 2 is the most disappointing game of this year. Through vidiot.

Yes, I'm going to fucking rip off vidiot's blog:

Ekhm. You can't do a hadouken in Uncharted 2.

AHA, is this our chance?!

Edited by NickM

Uncharted 2 is crap because of unrealistic jumping and Assassin's Creed 2 gets GOTY? Nice one, mate. 
There is a major contradiction in your statement! Now, I'm going to go back to playing Phoenix Wright.

Your opinion is wrong, Whisperkill.
 
Anyway, holy crap. I can't help but disagree with TC here. It's not like Uncharted 2 is sex in a can, but holy shit is it an improvement from the first one. I had few expectations for this UC2 due to playing UC1 and thinking it was okay, but not great.
 
It shattered my expectations.
 
Now unless TC got overhyped for UC2, I don't see why it could be a disappointment.

Uncharted 2 didn't suck, but it didn't do anything innovative either. Definitely one of the top games of 2009, but not the top (unless you are a Sony fanboy)

Posted by Whisperkill

UC2 doesn't suck, its just overrated. Still great, but definitely not the best of the year.

You wont' believe how many flags this got, oh my. They are unjustified because you are stating your opinion but, man, I am sorry....but you are wrong. Well, of course you are not wrong because it is your opinion but I really, strongly disagree. I don't buy your points at all regarding Uncharted 2 and almost feel as if your complaints were strong points for me but....to each his own, I guess.

I totally agree with you guys on UC2. I went into this game thinking HOLY SHIT IT GONNA BE AWESOME and apart from the great visuals (GREAT visuals) it just felt like a Gears/Tomb Raider hybrid, much like the first one did. Although this one is better than the first I don't get all this hype. I really don't. I think that the visuals were a huge part of the game and it made people much more forgiving to the other parts.
Posted by buzz_killington

I too was dissappointed a bit by Uncharted 2. They re-used the "supernatural-shit-will-pop-up-during-the-last-hour-of-the-game" formula from the first one, and that was my only fault with the game. Other than that, outstanding game.

Uncharted 2 clearly deserves it. The only way to not know this is to have not played it.

Posted by JokerClown88

Uncharted 2 is a great game.  Game of the Year?  Questionable.  It perfected the gameplay that was introduced in the first Uncharted and made the gunplay tighter.  The platforming is like that of Tomb raider, only less frusterating.  The enemies are not all bullet sponges like they were on the first one.  The story was better, and it continued the tradition of likeable characters.  Add in multiplayer which is akin to Gears of War on sterioids, and you have a fantastic game.  Its not my game of the year though, but it is definatly in the top ten. 
 
Did I mention the Graphics?
Edited by Jimbo

I don't know if you can really dismiss criticism of Uncharted 2 as 'being cool to hate popular things'.  I mean it's a dumb retort at the best of times, but Uncharted 2 sales aren't exactly setting the world alight.
 
For a game with a 96% metacritic to drop out of the NPD Top 20 the month after it's release, with nowhere near a million units sold in the US, speaks for itself.  It's an industry darling which most game buyers looked at and wrote off as Gears of War with some jumping - something they could live without when MW2 was right around the corner.
 
As for progression, it took what Half-Life and Call of Duty did/do in the first person (ie. tell the story around you) and used it in the third person - that's it.  They still told more than enough of their story through cutscenes.  I personally don't think it's that much to get excited about - I don't think anybody is ever going to be talking about it in the same manner as Half Life or games of that stature, but that's the kind of critical reception it received.  In real terms it has barely caused a ripple, let alone a splash.

Posted by Lestater

Uncharted 2 was cool and all, but I just don't see what made it get so many praises, before, during, and after playing it.

@TheGamerGeek: Even though you had a problem with Uncharted 2, you gotta remember that Killzone 2 came out this year as well. The hype for Killzone 2 has been around since the first E3 that the PS3 was even announced. Unless, you can make your point on how Uncharted was more hyped than that, Killzone 2 will be the most disappointing.

The platforming is still abysmal, that's what I'll agree with. Also, Nathan Drake is a despicable character. 
Nathan Drake is a fucking psycho. Who can murder soldiers, and make one-liner jokes about that? And those stealth kills where he snaps their neck in bone-crunching fashion? MESSED UP.

Dude, whats the point of this thread? 
 
Some people love this game, some people dont.
You may as well have just posted that. And then posted it again for every game ever released.  
 
If on the other hand, you just made up your (pretty stupid, although I suspect you meant it to be) list simply to annoy people - then kudos to you! well done indeed. 
Telling people that a clearly fantastic game is awful is a sure fire way to ignite a shit fight. 
You should just interchange ths particular thread but with (halo)(Gears)(MGS)(FF) etc etc and watch the exact same response ensue.

Going to copy + paste my thoughts on Uncharted 2 from my What'cha Been Doing blog. 
 
"  Uncharted 2 had an ass face of hype, not shockingly of course. Most of the hype has probably diminished my thoughts on the game as I went into it expecting way too much. It's not that I didn't like the game and that I'm saying it's a poor game, it's that there was way too many frustrating points in the game and some annoying elements that I could see people getting over, but I just couldn't. One being the platforming. It was very beautiful, yes, but it kind of feels like the game cheats itself as it gives you certain spots where you can jump extremely far and some spots where you can't. This ends with you having absolutely no idea of how far you can jump and can't jump which means you're gonna be seeing that death screen a lot, not really realizing that you can't make that jump although you made a jump much wider earlier. The other main complaint is the combat. Not the combat in general but some of the things that happen during the combat. It's pretty well known Uncharted 1's enemies were damn bullet sponges and according to many people, Uncharted 2 had changed that. While the normal enemies do go down A LOT faster, there is plenty of enemies that are still just as dumb as the one in the previous game. They explain it by saying they have "heavy armor", I find that too be complete bullshit. So if they said that every enemy in Uncharted 1 had padding on them, it would immediately be better? No. Not at all. It would be the same complaints and I feel many people are overlooking the sheer shittiness of these enemies. Also, developers need to learn, guys that are very heavy armored and kill you in one shot ARE NOT FUCKING GOOD.

While all that is disappointing, Uncharted 2 definitely has it's high points. The sheer cinematic experience and the set pieces are just plain beautiful. I love them. Also the story, it was the thing that kept me chugging along until I finally quit at around chapter 22. As it seems to be only me and a few other people that are disappointed by Uncharted, I have no problem telling you to rent it and if you like it, buy it." 
 
Bah humbug. 
 
@Tru3_Blu3: I love you. "

You're only complaints were that you sucked at jumping and you thought enemies with armor should have been able to die quicker.
 Your rational is flawed.

@Webby: @Stephen_Von_Cloud:  I didn't say every enemy, of course if he is shooting me from far away i will use a gun. My strategy for the entire game was walk in a situation take as many people as i can with stealth kills then start shooting then, when there are 3 or 4 left i would just run up and melee one after the other letting my health regenerate if i needed it to. Also i played on regular difficulty.

This is clearly a thinly veiled attempt to bash Uncharted 2. Why else would you mention it in the title? This is about GOTY, right? And why would you tell people to fucking suck it? Had you just listed Uncharted 2 as your most disappointing game, nobody would've gave a shit.

Now THIS I would like to see footage of.  Apparently you can't aim the guns, an enemy at distance should be shot and if you tried to instead tried to run at them you would be killed.  It's that simple.

If you played on the easiest difficulty maybe but you could finish gears on casual by chainsawing most enemies, COD by knifing.
