I just think that Borderlands and Demon's Souls broke so many boundaries and are something totally different and unique, unlike Uncharted 2.

Listening and reading reviews or taking the review score out of context? I'm curious to which one you mean. "  
I guess I'm just referring to games which get scores between 6-8 and people pass them off as if it were the worst peices of shit ever.

I personally thought the game was run of the mill, and very much like a Disney movie. I could see them making a film about Uncharted now with Shia LeBouf as the lead.

Huh? Disney-like how? In the shooting and snapping of people's necks or the psychopathic villain that is willing to off his own dudes without a bat of the eye? And Shia LeBouf? What? "
I can't really describe what I'm trying to say... I guess it was mostly just Nathan Drake's personality and how cinematic it was. He's too... I don't know how to put it really. Feel good? It's something along those lines, but not really feel good. Just disregard what I'm saying because I can't figure out the right words. Who says Disney can't have violence?! They've made plenty of movies with violence.  
 
I don't know, I just felt like I was watching a Jerry Bruckheimer film...
 
It's like having a word at the tip of your tongue... hmmmm

How can ToV win GOTY '09 if it came out in '08? People keep saying it's their game of the year but it's almost a year and a half old. Why the heck can't I change this boldness? :P "
In Europe, both Persona 4 and Tales of Vesperia were released this year. So for Europeans such as myself, they're totally valid picks for Game of the Year 2009. "
Oh sorry, I didn't know. The last I heard about that issue was that ToV was still waiting to go to Europe, I'm glad you guys finally got it!

" Nope. It's a good place to go for a list of reviews. Gamers who say Metacritic doesn't matter are wrong. "
Who says so? To me, all reviews don't matter. In terms of getting someone to like a game from a review, it only works for blockbusters. If I had have listened to reviews I would have missed out on a lot of really great gems that I love. 
 
If you're talking about an impact on sales, then yes I suppose it does matter. 
 
Reviewers are paid to find the negative aspects in games. Gamers use their spare time to play said games and have fun. Blindly listening to reviews and taking what they say as fact is what is wrong.

" wow too many xbots in this site, how can uncharted 2 be is so few peoples lists? lol  anyway my GOTY is between Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2... still need more time to decide. "

Dude, just because Uncharted 2 isn't on people's lists doesn't mean it's all "Xbots" as you call them... Just because it got good reviews doesn't mean everyone has to like it better than other games that came out this year. I personally thought the game was run of the mill, and very much like a Disney movie. I could see them making a film about Uncharted now with Shia LeBouf as the lead. /wrists
 
Mine would be a tie between Demon's Souls and Borderlands. Followed closely by Resident Evil 5 and InFamous.

I got mine, but I was really disappointed with how easy it was. I had hoped they would have put an achievement for maxing out a Proficiency, finding a certain amount of Orange guns, finding secret areas (like the secret chest in Rust Commons), etc. Too easy for my tastes.

" Ha, we came across someone on the 360 who was doing this. He thought he was some hard-core 'hacker', but in 15 seconds we had a walk-through on google. We continued to make fun of him, because he's no hacker, he followed a how-to on google. Jailbreaking an iphone doesn't make you a hacker. Any, he tried to convince us that "He did it first, before it was on google." Ha, ya right. Good times... "
Haha, I hate when I meet people like that on this game. Today I met this guy who said he has a "legit" Rocket launcher that shoots 50 rockets in one burst. He showed me, and it indeed did, but it most certainly wasn't legit. When I asked him where he got it he was like "New Haven". No way the game would make a gun like that. It also never needed to be reloaded and had infinite ammo. I think Gearbox should do something about these illegal guns because they're really just screwing over the people who want to actually find good gear that the game will give them.

" I've done that before. And I should never have taken days off from school to play a game. My god, look where it got me? Own house, my own car, great job.. All kinds of different stuff in the house that costs a lot.. My how it sucks "

 Yeah but correct me if I'm wrong, but your not American, right?  Because in America employers look at your school attendance, and if they find out you skipped a day (regardless of the reasoning)  they won't hire you.  Crazy country we live in, eh?    ;) "
Seriously...? How would they know, wouldn't that mean they would need some sort of attendance sheet from the school? That's really stupid. Are you talking about high school or university? And would this be for a permanent high paying job that you went to university/post secondary for or would this just be a part time job?
