DAY 5 GOTY'S GO!

Posted by MThand3d

Hey good job there ghost

Posted by Afroman269

Wow, I expected heavy rain.

Posted by Ghost407

I mean, finally its day five :)

Posted by zombie2011

3 p.m this week has been the best time everyday.

Edited by CornBREDX

I'm confused by their PS3-only GOTY choice, as they didnt really seem to like it way back when it came out, but i guess in comparison maybe to other PS3 exclusives its the best? I don't know, it's not a terrible game but it was a little disappointing- especially the ending.
 
Edit: oh and the Northies I thought was supposed to be the best performance by Nolan North. It's not really the best performance if you know it's him and he's everywhere. Just sayin, that seems a bit odd.

Good choices for day 5.

Now don't get me wrong, Vinny's awesome.  But boy does he suck at God of War 3. LOL I still love ya Vinny.  It's what makes him so lovable.

Is that Vinny making out with Brad at 00:33?  >_<

It's not his fault you're apparently the best and go to person in God of War playing.

Truly the breast PS3 game of the year. What a titanic release.

@CornBREDX: It wasn't a great year for PS3 or 360 exclusives.

So much anger on day 5.

why didn't this win best looking? LMAO

I skipped out on GOW3, but seeing it played made me regret that. 

Posted by whatisdelicious

 Wow, take a little while to prep and refresh yourselves on controls and make a couple good checkpoints before immediately jumping into the video demonstration of your PS3 GotY pick. Really shortchanged God of War III by fumbling around like this and making fun of it the entire time.

Not a massive RDR fan, but that 'Red Dead Redeemed' final shot before the credits hit proper was one of my favourite moments of the year. Visual impact over narrative interest perhaps but whatever.

 HAHA don't get testy dude.  I was just messing around.  It's just funny to see him fumble with controls and stuff.  I'm not saying I'm the best, I'm just saying Vinny's not that good.  It's what make my Vinny poo so adorable.

That GoW3 gameplay was pretty painful.

Posted by TheCrushader

Do an Endurance Run of this!!!

Posted by dezvous

Hahah, seeing this makes me understand why everyone on the GiantBomb staff has pretty much no interest in Devil May Cry and why they would prefer Bayonetta. Bayonetta is an awesome game but pulling off spectacular kills in it is much easier and in that sense less fun if you're looking to find a game that requires you to actually master. That being said, once you've mastered a DMC or GoW you can pull off some badass moves and it makes you feel like one as you're doing it. 
 
It's all good though. I can totally see why in their occupation they'd be less prone to enjoying a game like DMC unless it was on easy automatic, and I'd assume they would play at normal. Those games can be quite unforgiving.

I agree. Final Fantasy needs to take a break. Well, at least that's how we on the west sees it.

Posted by MagikGimp

Poor Vinny, lots of back-seat gaming in this one. 

As for this game, looks great but I get this twisted disturbing feeling when I watch it. Sure, I can watch dogs getting their skulls ripped open all day but the perversity of dismembering classical gods of the earth that represent nature and purity and suchlike and then having her plunge to her doom is just, well, I think perverse is the best word to describe it I think. And that's just one of many atrocities on the ancient world, not that I'm being overly serious about the whole thing but it makes me think of going into the British library and pissing on some 1000 year old papyrus (while being really pissed at the time of course).

Posted by Ventilaator

Aw come on. I understand why you want to be like this during a Quick Look, but in this case you should actually prepare the video like...even a little. This felt like they had chosen 2010's best game for the Sega Nomad or something, as in doing it for laughs.

This videos shows completely why I don't enjoy god of war at all. 
1.  An angry emo 13 yr old fantasy character/Women who are supposed to be sexy that look Grotesque
2.  Simplistic puzzling to the point they are made artificially long after you know how to finish it. 
3. XXYYYXXXXXYYXXXXXYXXXYXXX  Combat 
4.  Mediocre platforming, often with a garbage semi fixed camera position. 
  
Even though the art sucks the animation/fidelity of the graphics are great at least.

Shows what you know, there are no Ys on a PS3 controller and Square is light attack not X.

This year was pretty bad for PS3 exclusives.

Wait a minute... was that Mafia 2 footage for real? That was so awful.

Posted by Nasar7

I like how they managed to show none of the cool parts of gow3, while repeatedly mentioning how awesome and epic the very beginning of the game is. lulz.

Exactly - what you think it would be entertaining to watch an expert play the game with everyone on the couch treating it with nothing but solemn reverence?  They like the game - which they continually mention, AND they have fun with it - much like a group of friends playing a game.  They  named it PS3 Game of the Year, and yet they shortchanged it....?  Man I hope the franchise will survive this scathing treatment!

Does anyone know what the orchestral bit is at the start in the background?

I'm not saying they need to treat it with "solemn reverence" or even be "experts" at it. But they should know the controls. They should be able to show that game off in a way that makes it look appealing. I said they shortchanged it because if I didn't already love God of War, I would've thought that that just didn't look like a fun game. They sat there and used up most of the time fumbling with controls, making fun of Kratos, and just generally not showing much knowledge of the game at all. It felt like they only picked God of War III because Ryan didn't like Heavy Rain and the other candidate was Sports Champions.

Slow year for PS3 when God of War, a game series that hasn't changed for 5 iterations now, wins the platform GotY.  Haven't listened to the deliberations yet but what else is there to choose from?  Heavy Rain and Killzone? 
 
I'd have sooner picked 3D Dot Game Heroes or Heavy Rain.  God of War has fantastic production values, but shallow combat, poor platforming (as shown by Vinny and pretty much everyone else I know double jumping to their death many times), and terrible story/character progression.  The story is the EXACT SAME throughout all the games with only the first PSP title having a moment that really resonated with me and showed some character progression within Kratos.  In GoW3, it's rage and anger, anger and rage, yelling, and... *yawn* the same thing we have seen for years. 
 
When the creator of the series claims that it is outclassed in combat by all the other major action titles (DMC, NG, Bayonetta), then why do people still praise the combat?  It took until the first PSP title to make a secondary weapon worth a damn and this one has the blades, copy of the PSP weapon, copy of the first sword in the first game, and another type of blades of chaos you get from Hades.  
 
I worked video game retail during the period it was released. Sold massively well for about 3 weeks and then died.  Price drops did not bring back the people and neither did sales on the used.  We just amassed used copies and never got rid of them.  Same with Killzone, by the way.  Heavy Rain sold less, but was still returned too. 
 
Just a boring ass year for exclusives outside of the downloadables scene. Multi-plats, however, were amazing through and through. :D

was there anything else to choose

CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES

Posted by squidracerX
@theKbob - for a guy who acts like he knows a lot about games, and says he worked in games retail... Ummm Killzone 2 came out almost 2 years ago :) Why do you mention it as a candidate for game of the year 2010? Killzone was a Feb 2009 game
 
Anyway yeah, none of the platforms had a ton of exclusives this year; but what they had was good. PS3 had Mod Nation Racers, Heavy Rain, God of War, GT5, and 3D Dot Game heroes which i bought all of and liked. Plus I just got the Sly Collection and Trinity Universe for Xmas. Xbox had Fable 3, Halo, and Splinter Cell. Those aren't bad either. Nintendo had Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby, Metroid, and DK. And you 100% forgot about whole entire launches of Move and Kinect which was worth at least 2 exclusive games for their respective platforms (they each had about 10 exclusives but some weren't so great - but again if the money hadn't been put into motion controls we would have seen budget for 2 more games easy). There wasn't a lot of exclusives sure, (like the 20 coming out next year on PS3), but that's just because so much is multiplatform now, so its still cool. Plus I cant afford many more games than that anyway!

That's Giant Bomb, that's how they roll, that's the way we like them. They are all terrible at games, which is just something you have to keep in mind when listening to them on the Bombcast or watching a Quick Look. They keep throwing wrong statements around, they spend 2 hours of TNT dying over and over, they get in all sorts of needless trouble during Endurance Runs, but we endure and manage to love them.
 
All their trouble in the video could have been solved had they just started from the beginning, but that wouldn't have been in the spirit of the Giant Bomb.
