Makes sense since there were so few major 360 exclusives this year.
Giant Bomb's Xbox 360-Only Game of the Year, 2009
"I was disappointed by this, definitely. Now understand, I have never played Shadow Complex, but I am still a little urked that the Xbox 360 GOTY went to a downloadable game. Forgive me if that seems old-timey, but I think a full out game should probably win the award instead of some XBLA shit. But hey. I haven't played it, maybe it's really that good. "
You are a fucking idiot, never post here again
Very cool game. I played a shit ton of it in the first week completing just about everything with the exception of hitting level 50. Totally exhausted myself of it though, and I never want to look at it again. I'm not made to marathon game.
Also, 360 had a weak ass year for exclusives.
" Well Halo 3: ODST was a pile of garbage, and Forza 3 is quite a niche title, so it had to go to Shadow Complex. Funny how a $15 XBLA download was better than an expansion pack that was priced as a full game. ODST showed how the Halo fanboys are the biggest sheeps in the gaming industry.Classy.
Didn't expect ODST to win anything here. They all thought the game was good, just nothing special. Basically, Halo all over again. Its a sound feeling. But Shadow Complex over Forza? Mind boggling... Though from their reactions in the podcasts, make sense.

So did you come to this page with the premeditated intention of letting the world know just how much you hate Halo then?
"I would play it, if it came to PC ... a perfect game for my steam collection "
Same here, I wish Epic would get over their whiney bitch thing over Unreal Tournament 3, realize the game wasn't that great and that is why sales sucked, and then release their games on PC again. It just burns when a studio made through the PC turns their back for no real reason.
good a down loadable game won now if only a game that only comes out for download wins game of the year next year i think that their will be a shift of some sort maybe alot more download able full games. AKA steam on consoles with day and day launch at retail. Now that is the world i want to live in. Also i need to go play this game.
Xbox 360 exclusives this year were terrible, I really hope 2010 will be a better year, I really want to buy a PS3 for Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank, God of War and Heavy Rain, and Killzone, and maybe Resistance...
But, Xbox has Mass Effect 2 next year, yay! But.... thats about it... I don't really want more Halo, I guess Gears 3 would be nice...
