Vote for your Favorite Games of the Year

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Dec 04, 2007 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Like a lot of people, I tend to get wrapped up in the annual end-of-the-year list-making madness. December always finds me laughing at The Soup’s Best of the Worst Countdown, agonizing over my top 10 albums (probably Peter, Bjorn, & John’s “Writer’s Block” at the top. Probably.), or seeing if I agree with the many Games of the Year features. In the spirit of convenience, sometimes it’s nice to just be able to look at a list and vote.

1UP has just such a setup with their 2007 1UP Awards. PlayStation titles are well represented through 13 categories, so let your voices be heard, Sony fans! The voting runs until Dec. 31, 2007, with award winners to be announced in February.

Among my personal selections: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune for Best Adventure Game, Jeanne d’Arc for Best Role Playing Game, Rock Band for Best Multiplayer Game (that was a tough one!), and Warhawk for Best Console Downloadable Game. Make sure you vote… and tell your friends to do the same!

Call of Duty 4 is truly stellar. Its multiplayer component still has me playing.

Already taken care of, but that place is swarmed by fanboys of the other system so I’m sure the voting will be very lopsided.

Already voted. Uncharted GoTY in my opinion. I wasn’t sure what downloadable game to vote for since I don’t have a credit card or a Playstation Card to buy any of those games. So uhhh where are the Playstation Cards?

The system aimed for little kids or the one that breaks and gives you the red middle finger?

Nothing made or ported from EA should ever be on the list for game of the year.

+ Traziun on December 4th, 2007 at 3:23 pm said:

So many great games this year! I picked Uncharted for best Adventure game and Persona 3 for best RPG. GOTY for me was Assassin’s Creed.

Why don’t they ever add a “Who plays this crap?” or “None of the above” selection and subtract those votes from the total by category? Just because some prepubescent fourth grader at 1up thinks a game belongs on a “best of” doesn’t mean it does. Conversely; I suppose… just because some crotchety old curmudgeon thinks a game doesn’t belong on a “best of” list doesn’t mean it doesn’t, even if it doesn’t.

Equal Opportunity Annoyer

1up.com is a terrible biased site, but I voted for Uncharted as my overall Game of the Year, it’s a true classic.

Voted for Uncharted as GOTY. :)

Jeff, on a side note, Remote Play is still not working correctly. If Remote Start is activated on the PS3, it switches on all the time while the PSP is totally off. This should have been fixed with the 2.01 Firmware, but unfortunately it isn’t.

God of War 2 all the way, it’s not only game of the year in my books but my favorite game ever. Also I just checked the playstation site and i love the new tech videos and the new look, great job Sony.

The 1up game of the year award is voted by viewers not game reviewers, i would rather watch Spikes VGA or wait for IGN to come out with their awards.

I definatley think God of War 2 should be game of the year, and warhawk be best multiplayer of the year. Other’s like Uncharted, Motorstorm and Ratchet all have a good chance for an award.

One last thing, this is to Jeff or a Sony person. I regret buying a gamecube i wish i bought a PS2, but i can’t change the past. But once i bought a 60gb i was able to play PS2 games, like God of War. Now if i were to buy a 40gb i would have never gotten the chance to play such an amazing PS2 game. So i do think BC is important. At least i think it is.

+ Lp47 on December 4th, 2007 at 5:48 pm said:

I forgot i just bought Killzone for PS2, but wait i dont have a PS2, how will i play it? O ya i was lucky to get a 60gb which supports BC, but to bad others who buy the new 40gb will be out of luck.

Just putting that out there Sony.

Uncharted for GOTY!

So so underrated. I never felt a game satisfy me like this game since the old 2D Sonic the Hedgehog’s and Super Mario’s.

Platforming was a constant thrill, the puzzles were good, and the shooting was plain fun.

Thanks for this post. Yea, let us Playstation fans be heard!!

+ Aluc on December 4th, 2007 at 6:16 pm said:

I haven’t played much of uncharted but that or Ratchet should be GOTY. That’s just my opinion.

+ robbigdog on December 4th, 2007 at 6:56 pm said:

Okay, so I know that I’m an idiot. I didn’t read the fine print. I also know that my issues have nothing to do with the game per se.

That having all been said, I’m not voting for Warhawk for anything. The DRM restrictions on my downloaded version proved to be ridiculous. My kid couldn’t even play it on the same physical machine under a sub-account.

I think that it’s better not to release a title as downloadable than to release something that’s just going to infuriate customers.

I’m also boycotting future big $$ PSN purchases, but that’s just me.

+ PsychoEddie on December 4th, 2007 at 7:21 pm said:

@robbigdog

It cares? What error does it give you? Lemme see if I understand you. You’ve installed it under your/master account and your son is trying to play the same installation while logged on to a sub account and it won’t let him.

Both.

GOW2 certainly deserves GOTY, it got my vote.


35

+ Manmonkey on December 4th, 2007 at 7:31 pm said:

Definitely Uncharted for GOTY.

i’ll have to UNCHARTED only because COD4 online has so many problems….. laggy, and buddy system $ux. and it shuts down a room when a person quits…

without a doubt CALL OF DUTY 4 !,
the graphic, sound, online game depth.

perfect game, must buy.

also assisians creed, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune…

GOTY I had to give to Mass Effect. I’m sorry . . . Uncharted is great, but it wasn’t ground-breaking.

Warhawk is a close second.

@PsychoEddie

That’s correct. A subaccount on the same machine as the game was purchased on is not allowed to play. That actually IS in the fine print. When I called the PS Help line, the representative quoted the terms of service to me, and he reminded me that I did agree to those terms of service. Helpful, huh? I was extremely PO’d.

Check it out, Sony swapped the last ad company after 13 years for a new one. I guess they own the licence for the black octopus. Maybe to give Sony a small stitch in the back for a farewell thanks they kept it for themselves. Bit sad, because they where pretty cool. Would you mind to bring that on Jeff? Still try to get those ads on PS Store?
