Not necessarily the most technically sophisticated, or the highest paper specifications, but the title that delivers the biggest overall “wow” factor

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Ratchet & Clank takes a very close second place.

Best Pioneer

The game that did the most to push the field of video game entertainment forward?

Rock Band. Unreal Tournament 3 takes a very close second place.

Multiplayer

This covers competitive play, co-op, and social networking features. Which is the best overall?

Call of Duty 4 Warhawk was a single vote behind.

Best “Other”

This covers areas not included by the other categories.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

Most Overrated/Overhyped

Lair In hindsight, overrated and overhyped should be separate categories.

Most Underrated/Underhyped

Folklore. This was a quality game with good reviews, but this has gotten very little buzz.

Biggest Surprise of the Year

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune

Biggest Disappointment of the Year

Lair

Best PS2 Game Compatible with PS3

God of War 2 by a landslide. This was the only near unanimous category with only two people voting for something else.

Game of the Year

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune

Summary

Many very close votes, but no ties. Uncharted won four separate categories! No other game won more than one.

    Can’t disagree with that really. Uncharted is a stellar game.

    Am I supposed to say “Woo! First post!” or something now? ;-p

    I haven’t played the full game yet, but from the demo, Uncharted looks a little boring. I will definitely give it a shot but I’m skeptical.

    And did no one else like Manhunt 2? Or Kane & Lynch?

    I was never interested in Manhunt 2, since the first game bored me after a while. Kane & Lynch had many flaws, as pointed out in OPM (as well as PS2-grade graphics), so I didn’t bother with that either.

    Uncharted is anything but boring! It’s great to play, tells an awesome story, and has a hell of a plot twist for the last part of the game. I’m currently on my 4th play through, it’s that good. I started gaming at 8, I’m 36 now, and I’ve never previously played a game through more than twice.

    Did you play K&L or are you just going off of the reviews? I rented it and had to force myself to try it. I really expected a terrible game based on the buzz, but I actually really liked it. The graphics aren’t anything mind blowing, but PS2 level? Come on, that’s silly.

    OK, fine, I’ll buy Uncharted and check out the full game. Based on the demo I was going to hold out for a rental, but you’ve pushed me over the edge. I’m convinced it’s good enough that I won’t regret buying.
