It is my Game of the year, but everyone seems to forget how good it was of just that it even came out.

I hope Brad makes a strong case for it as it was an amazing game, I hate to see great things get ignored.

Edited by awesomeusername

It's not being ignored, just forgotten. Remember, it came out in January and a lot of people forget about all the earlier games once Fall comes.

Edit: You also forgot the space in between Dead and Space.

Mass Effect 2 does not agree with you.

Hardcore mode kind of made me hate that game so yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh

I haven't. These threads. Stop them all.

Only games that came out in the last 3 months count.

@Little_Socrates: It's a blog post.

I was thinking about DS2 last night and every time I thought of something amazing that happened in it I was reminded of something else and ended up with a long list of reasons why it is easily one of the best games of the year. The games biggest problem is that it ditched a lot of the creepy atmosphere for cheap jumps and only ever comes close when you return to the Ishimura... and then five minutes later you're back to blasting the shit out of everything.

That bit where you get chased down the hallway and end up fighting the monster in space is one of the most awesome moments in any game I have ever played.

I am sure they will choose an adequate game for GOTY.

YES, just let them be. Enough dumb speculation, it is all fun and good until people inevitably complain and insult the staff and other users.

Edited by TwoLines

Yep, It was a good game. But it's not on my personal GOTY list. Felt kind of... flat. Fun gameplay, cool setpieces, but I thought most of the game was kind of forgettable. But hey, that's my opinion.

I still vote on Skyrim in terms of GoTY, but man I do love Dead Space 2. Personally I had a better experience with Dead Space 2 than Portal 2 as far as sequels are concerned. This is even considering the fact that it's hardly much of a horror game anymore as the setpieces are simply fantastically executed in my opinion. Also "PEW PEW PEW!".

I can hear the snow under their daedric boots already.

Dead Space 2 is probably my GOTY or my number 2. It's between that or Mortal Kombat. I played through the entire story mode as soon as I could. The way it just went from cut scene to fight, the anticipation of who I'd be playing as next and the oh shit moments that were either from the old MK games or how they diverted from them was just incredible for me. On top of that it's a fun fighter with a laundry list of modes.

Skyrim is good, but I'm not getting way it is getting so much praise, it's far from perfect.

It's on my list but there are other games I have enjoyed more so far.

Posted by Blackout62

Oh believe me sir it will be sitting rather high on my personal list for this year but yeah I don't see it as a big GOTY contender.

Posted by Little_Socrates

@big_jon: Not if you attach it to the forums and only type two sentences. Also, it says "Blog Post" in parentheses when it's a blog post, so it's not a blog post.

They will cover the games they feel the need to cover. Literally earlier today I saw the exact same thread in reference to ilomilo, only the actual content of the first post was "January 5TH." I don't want to see this exact format all month.

@Little_Socrates: My point was made in my post, I don't need to write a fucking thesis to please your forum requirements, sorry duder.

Posted by Little_Socrates

@big_jon: I'm not banning you or anything, I'm requesting that people not make these threads. If your argument for "it's okay" was "it's a blog post", then I'm pointing out that it's not a blog post. If your argument for "it's okay" is "I made my point," by all means you did, but please don't do it again. I'm going to treat everyone who does the same just as shitty as you, as these threads cropping up on December 4th is already annoying and I really don't want it to continue until the first GOTY podcast.

This is a poor way to forum for two weeks straight, maybe longer.

You have a point there but I'm sure it was because people were still playing ME2 when Fall came!

Posted by AhmadMetallic

It's on my top 10 list, don't worry! 
 
Nothing even comes close to Portal 2 in the top spot, though.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

It didn't resonate with me the way the first game did. Though, in it's defense, I only played it for 3-4 hours. With that said, it mainly just felt like more of the same to me.

Posted by Crash_Happy

Gosh darn I liked Dead Space 2.

Posted by Gabriel

Word, Dead Space 2 is amazing kinda a bummer no one remembers it came out.

That's just Mumbo Jumbo.

Skyrim, Saints Row and Dead Space 2 are definitely my fav games of the year for sure. But I can't say its better than Skyrim.

Posted by Wuddel

I am totally with you. Skyrim is still my number 1 since it is so unique in its nonlinearity, but Dead Space 2 is probably a close second tied with Portal 2. It made me play a genre (survival horror or horror in general) I usually never play.

The harcore trophy haunts me. Something I will attempt after my thesis.

Posted by MEATBALL

'Twas a good game, but I preferred its predecessor to be honest, and I'm pretty sure I can think of ten games I enjoyed more.

Posted by mylifeforAiur

I felt like the pacing was a little incongruous at times, but generally speaking, the game is solid fun.

Posted by N7

The only thing I liked about Dead Space 2 was the story, the BEAUTIFUL lighting and how Isaac was pretty cool this time around.
 
What I didn't like about Dead Space 2, was how completely non-scary it was. Once you figure out that EVERY SINGLE TIME you see a Necromorph, there's one behind you, the surprise is gone.
 
That said, I still can't believe this game came out this year.

Posted by Winternet

@big_jon: Don't worry. I won't forget it.

Posted by NTM

Yeah, it was my favorite game this year as well. Although I think the only game to be just as good if I were to play it would be Arkham City. I also want to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but as it stands, Dead Space 2 is my favorite game this year.

Really I thought it was super boring.
Posted by pweidman

Fantastic game agreed.  In my top three this year.  The GB guys won't forget it, Jeff even mentioned earlier this year that it would be in the convo of GOTY.
Posted by TooWalrus

...that explains why it's game number 7 on my GOTY list!

@sarge1445: Maybe you have bad taste?
