Action Game of the Year: Crackdown (Xbox 360)

Yay. Crackdown was one of the biggest surprises of the year for me.
jvalioli said:
How much did the Orange Box beat Bioshock by? I know it was neck and neck for a while there.
Two points. Halo 3 was ahead of CoD4 by four points.

Thanks for all the hard work, Ani.
 
#14
Thanks, Ani. :) Nice job with the genres, too. My only advice for next time is to split "Sports" into separate "real sports" and "stuff like SKATE and Mario Strikers" categories. :p

Might be nice to have a "VC/XBLA/PSN" category next year, too.
 
#17
CONGRATURATION MARIO, A WINNAR IS YOU :bow

Great job and thanks for doing this tremendous labor, Anihawk.

As I said in the other thread, I just bought Crackdown seeing as it's in GAF's Top 10, no easy feat. Hope the game is as good as you guys say it is.

And yeah, the boxart is fucked up. :lol

Well done Super Mario Galaxy, deserves all the credit it gets.

Good to see some solid Metroid Prime 3 and Zack and Wiki recognition as well.

Awesome work Ani.

Great awards, agree with almost all of the choices. Nice to see Crackdown get some props.

It seems like most other sites are voting on games released in the last two months and forgetting about earlier releases like Crackdown and God of War 2.
 
#22
Though I'm disappointed that Rock Band did not make it into the top 10, I am very pleased at Mass Effect's (my GOTY) spot. Beating everything but Bioshock, SMG, and Orange Box (the overwhelming favorites, IMO) is quite a feat as is RPG of the year.

I guess all I'm saying is that after the initial reaction, I thought it would be forgotten this year, but I'm glad to see it is not.

Good for Crackdown as well.
 
#34
Huh, way back then in '04, MGS3 won with only 613 votes. GAF has come a long way! What the fuck happened with Half Life 2?

Anyways, I'm really happy GOTY went to Super Mario Galaxy. Most deserving game by far.

Great list. GAF's thought processes and decision making > every other GOTY lists, as per usual.

Thanks again to Ani for putting up with it for another year and counting the votes.

Awesome work Ani! Great to see Crackdown and Uncharted in the top 10 (finally)... and thank god COD4 isn't #1 and sits below Halo 3. All of that, and SMG taking #1, really shows that gameplay is king. As others have said, finally a GOTY/Top Ten I can really get behind. Thanks GAF, for truly having taste. Too bad Rock Band is so damn expensive though. I'm sure if more gamers had a chance with it, it would've been in the top 10.

YES!!!

TOB > BioShock

Halo 3 > CoD4

Me and Ghaleon = HAPPY!

STUPID QUESTION ANI: Why aren't BioShock, TOB etc. on the PC Games of The Year list? (I'm glad that The Witcher won, just wondering).

They aren't exclusive, so I put them in with the multiplatform thing list thing.

Last year, TP was multiplatform because it was on the GC and Wii (hold your jokes, I know, I know), so instead Wii Sports won for the Wii-specific awards, and I Baten Kaitos Origins won for Gamecube.

Anyway, last year for the GBA. Farewell, old friend. Farewell.
