This site has alot of GOTY awards don't you think ? I mean everyone has done it at this point and for that I congratulate for clicking on this instead of rolling your eyes and moving on. I've tried to do something a little different here: Instead of giving my top ten or my Game of The Year (aka telling you that Brotherhood, Red Dead, Mass Effectt or Star Craft are good games) i've made random categories that will hopefully make you laugh or anger you !
Commander Shepard (Mass Effect 2)
Killing your main character off att the beginning of the game is a bold move. But making his death extremelly painful and fun to watch ? Bravo ! Seriously, the poor guy. You'd think he'd have an awesome death, one where he sacrifices himself for mankind, saving the day. But not here. He falls into a trap and dies what I think is the most painful way to go: his suit is breached and he loses oxygen. Like a fish out of water, gamers got to watch him wretch in pain as he ran out of air and died in the cold, blackness of space. This was one of the best scenes of 2010 and in my opinion the best death.
Best use of the F-Bomb
"That was pretty fucking ninja" (Medal Of Honor)
Nothing spells patriotisme like a good F-bomb. After capturing an entire mountain, members of Tier 1 look at a beautiful sunrise while rotten bodies lay around them. Command tells them that they've captured the mountain and as the screen fades to black, your loyal soldier says something that totally summed up the entire situation: that what you had just done was "pretty fucking ninja". Hell yeah, Ameica, hell yeah.
Worst Real Life Job a Game Made Me Do
Farming (Red Dead Redemption)
When you think of Red Dead, you think of shooting bandits in the face. Sure, farming was an excellent tutorial at the beginning of the game, teaching you how to ride and break horses. But man oh man, did we really have to do it all over again during the last act of the game ? Seriously, after shooting your old desperados, you're back on the family farm, scaring crows and bonding with Jack. Seriously Rockstar, I don't give a damn about learning more about my son and playing daddy ! Have you ever heard of a montage ? That would have sped things along and got me back to shooting guys.
Shit Just Got Real Award
Running Around Naked (Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days)
What was probably one of the weirdest things I've ever played, Dog Days invented the naked shooter. You play as Lynch and you run around naked, covered in horrible cuts, shooting dudes through a mall. This happens right after a rather gruesome torture scene and is the moment where Kane realizes that all has gone to hell. Being an M rated game, you get to watch Kane's beautifully animated butt cheeks for an entire level. This was the only memoable moment of this mediocre game. This also wins sexiest moment of 2010.
Evil Achievement Award
A Monument To All Your Sins (Halo: Reach)
150g sure is tempting. And completing Reach on Legendary alone doesn't sound to bad. Yeah, the first level is easy, but then it all goes downhill. Those damned elites and your dumb team mates make the odds seem impossible at times. Your enemie's shields constantly go back up and your ammo runs out. Soon, the game's length will go from 6 hours to 20. It is a sadistic achievement that constantly laughs at you each time you look at your achievements, it's a true 150 point achievement that rewards the best.
You've Probably Forgotten This Game Exists Award
Rememb te trailers and cool premise that was Naughty Bear ? You had to kill other fluffy bears in increasingly violent ways. It was kind of llike The Club (remember that ?) meets Manhunt. I personally enjoyed it but it was destroyed by critics and had no coverage on the site. I will eat my own teddy bear if I see a sequel to this, it's too bad, there was potential.
