    Halo 2 didn't keep everything that was great about CE. The single player is often thought of as the worse of the trilogy. The multiplayer was so broken when released they had a quick patch to fix it. It's as if that never happened, but trust me folks upon release grenades and melee were useless. It was awful, and clearly wasn't Halo. Only after the patch did things shape up. I would say, it seems the industry has gotten a lot better since giving a movie "game of the show." One that wasn't released till after the next E3 no less.

    Personally I think Halo2 is the best in the series (until #4), and a lot of people will agree with me. It's just a matter of opinion. Besides only a few good games came out that year, i.e, Metroid Prime 2, Fable, and GTA San Andreas, so It wasn't that hard of a choice. Though I will admit, the Halo games are given a blinds eye when it comes to the ratings. People just see a Halo and go, "oh look, Halo, 9/10!!!!" And then everyone cheers.

    How is it that for 2007, you only mention Super Mario Galaxy and CoD4:MW as being standouts when Mass Effect, Halo 3, The Orange Box, BioShock, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, God of War 2, The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, The Darkness, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, and Assassin's Creed all came out the same year? And how can you say there was any clear cut winner that year as well?

    All those games are great but the point of article was comparing "Best of E3" games to the "Game of the Years" Meantions, as much as we love them all, they cant all be winners, atleast to the players they are but gamesites bother with giving a name. My opinion, The best were Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock, Metroid Prime 3, and Halo 3. I wanna say drakes fortune but i heavily believe it wasnt WOW until the second game, but thats only because i played the second first.

    But a lot of those games did get GotY from a lot of review sites/magazines/etc., and people lost their collective shit over all of them and then some (including reviewers). What bothered me is that this article makes it out to be that with all those games that came out in 2007, the only standouts were Modern Warfare and Super Mario Galaxy.

    Yeah see this is why Game Of The Year is only a namesake, it's only media claims to think they found "THE BEST GAME" when there's a ton others and shouldn't be taken seriously.

    darksouls 2 for goty 2013 if it comes out this year

    I dont know if i even care.... Can you even be "right" about something subjective, and something so limited that it has to be at e3? Just seems an....unnecessary contest, especially since it just a preview of the game and not the finished product.......say like bioshock infinite....

    RAGE was disappointing but still great fun to play. If it wasn't hyped up so much then it might not've been a let down. Bioshock Infinite will probably win game of the year awards this year, but still some great games coming, plus PS4. It didn't capture me in the same way the first Bioshock did though. Fallout 3 is the only other game on that list that I really played and it's the only one that I go back to and play frequently. I'm hoping Bethesda have a big announcement in this E3 with Fallout 4 details. Would be good 5 years on from the Fallout 3 announcement

    Nice analysis Best showing in E3 DOES NOT = Best Game of the Year, its 2 separate things Its more on the hype of the event itself.
