View Full Version : Game of the year; so far

10-08-2004, 12:54 PM
It's no secret that if Halo 2 is at least as good as the first, it'll likely nab the prize for game of the year. But what's everyone favorite two or three games so far, and what one game releasing before christmas (besides Halo 2) do you think will be worthy?

My faves this year:
Ninja Gaiden
Star Wars Battlefront
Breakdown, or Rid****, no, Breakdown

Most hope for:
KotOR: Sith Lords

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Halo 2

My major ones I'm looking forward to other than the obvious is Everquest 2.

Burnout3, Fable, Metroid2, and KOTOR2 prob have a good chance at GOTY though as well.

All Platform Contenders for Game of the Year so Far:

-Ninja Gaiden
-Chronicles of Rid****: EfBB
-Burnout 3: Takedown
-Unreal Tournament 2004
-Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
-The Sims 2
-Rallisport Challenge 2
-Pikmin 2

Throughout the Rest of This Year:

- Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
- Prince of Persia 2: Warrior Within
- Halo 2
- Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
- World of Warcraft
- Ghost Recon 2
- Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
- Grand Turismo 4
- Half-Life 2
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andrea's

My personal favorite titles released so far are Pandora Tomorrow (Although the first remains superior), Ninja Gaiden, Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, Burnout 3, and Rid****.

Unreleased games I'm looking forward to are almost all of the games listed above, but most of all, Half-Life 2, MGS3: SE, Halo 2, and Prince of Persia 2. For the coming year, I'm anticipating Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Conker: Live & Reloaded, and Resident Evil 4.

10-09-2004, 02:08 PM
-Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
-Doom 3

10-09-2004, 04:30 PM
-Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
-Doom 3

Not trying to bash anyone or anything in particular, but, Doom 3......."Game of the Year" contender? It was an admittedly decent game, but the general consensus is that the game was rather average. It's almost impossible not to be dissapointed by the final product in some way or another.

Ninja Gaiden
and from the looks of it and upgrades from the original, Need for Speed Underground 2 is gonna be awesome, not game of the year obvisouly but i really cant wait for it

10-12-2004, 01:07 PM
What!!! are you guys crazy?? No one mentioned Espn football?? That game is the most played online game i had so far.. Also i give it to Full Spectrum warrior, and Ninja Gaiden. Espn basketball, the most fluid b-ball game out there.
And the rainbow six 3.

Since RS3 -- ESPN NFL 2k5 HAS been my main passion....RS : BA hasn't been on my list of things to do for awhile -- even when it's supposed to be what DDC is all about -- I just don't dig it.

Fable was fun for about....a week.

So far -- ESPN 2k5 does have my vote for one of the best games of the year. It has some stupid AI problems when my Defense doesn't notice the QB running -- or my OLB turning to grapple an offensive linemen instead of going for the QB

SC : PT is the chit too -- but I just couldn't get into the online aspect...

I'm looking forward to Halo2...possibly GR2. We'll see what happens -- and whether I have the money flow to even purchase them.

Looking forward to:

Halo 2
WE KNOW!!!!!
rid**** is so far the goty imho.

10-13-2004, 09:59 AM
THe only thing I have against Rid**** was how short it was. The triple max section was so short, it seems obvious they had to cut it to have it ready in time for the movie's release. Otherwise it was a great first person shooter that played like no other game I've seen. I still like Breakdown better.
