Uncharted 2 is probably one of the best titles on ps3
Best Action/Adventure: Assassin's Creed 2
How in the hell does AC2 beat UC2 in this category, lol... That is all UC2 is from the very start to the very end of the game. In fact, it's the most action nonstop game I've ever played. Something like UC2 that captures an emotional connection as you feel like your going to fall or die with all the instant situations you are put in over and over. I guess Spike TV wants everyone to win at least something... lol.
That is exactly how i felt when i watched it, lol. i think that your correct on the fact that spike wanted everyone to leave feeling like they accomplished something... that's also why rocksteady studios won Studio of the Year... bunch of bull.
Could be worse. At least Uncharted 2 got the title over Modern warfare, which surprised me because this is spike. These are the same people who picked GTA IV over MGS4.
Well Uncharted 2 got Game of the Year, so we can't complain too much. They also deserve Worst Preorder Bonus for the treasure map that only shows 6/100 treasures.
I was a bit surprised that Batman: Arkham Asylum didn't get anything other than Studio of the Year. That game is one of my favorites and I thought it was exceptionally well done.
I'm looking forward to AA2, but I'd have rathered a new setting. I'm not sure how exactly it can take place on Arkham Island again without feeling like a rehash of the first. I guess we'll see.
I'm happy to see that Sony got a lot of awards, but honestly, I think those people know as much about video games as the celebrities paid to do the annoucements...
Uncharted 2 won GOTY, that's all I wanted.. I bet Bobby Kotick is raging in his lair.
