Bayonetta 2 GOTY! Gamespot PERFECT SCORE!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bayonetta 2 GOTY! Gamespot PERFECT SCORE!

Come on the game is great but a 10 is streaching way too far. Thats just Gamespor beeing Gamespot.

what!? O_O

gamespot just gave a perfect score to a game on a Nintendo platform!! and not only that, it is an exclusive 3rd party IP, the kind of ones which are usually spin-offs for testing the waters, low-budget, rushed, un-inspired, of course this it is an extremely rare case where a Nintendo platform actually gets a proper polished, high-budget 3rd party sequel

Bayonetta 2 must be a really, really great game that not even anti-Nintendo gamespot could resist, cannot be explained otherwise!! unless they started to really feel sorry for Ninty and the WiiU, maybe they even regret for bashing the Wii way too much the last 7 years :S

judging from the reviews, it seems to be working quality wise, I hope it gets the success it deserves and it looks like an out of nowhere buy for me :D



At the moment, Bayonetta 2 is the closest game to getting GOTY.
The only other game that i can think of is Dark Souls 2.
As for other games such as Far Cry 4, COD, SSBU, LBP3, and Dragon Age. We'll have to wait for their reviews.
Funny how the most games that were advertised aren't close to being contenders. (Destiny and Watch Dogs)

Since when does gamspot decide what was an overall GOTY?

Last year, they gave TLoU an 8 and it went on to be the most rewarded entertainment product of all times with more than 50 perfect scores


It's usually given by a collection of critics among the gaming scene, gamespot happens to have two spots, as with IGN and Kotaku


No, i mean the overall GOTY count, not the crappy VGAs

Usually VGAs are the "big" GOTY awards... 

There will be a site or 2 that gives it GOTY... It really depends on their writers view on the game.

Gamespot are often over critical of Nintendo in their news articles (from my understanding, anyway), but review wise they're as frequently inconsistent with Nintendo's titles as they are with everyone else's :p

People have the bad habit of assuming any opinion that doesn't match their own is a biased one.

When they gave DK a 6/10 people were screaming about their supposed "anti-Nintendo" agenda like it was a holy truth, yet no one bats an eyelash when they give B2 a 10/10 or 3D World a 9/10. The same yet reversed effect, due to the alignment of opinions rather than contradiction.

While Bayonetta 2 seems to deserve being a GOTY contender, the OP sounds incredibly fanboy-ish to me. You say LBP3 offers nothing interesting (and "copies Sonic characters" lol) and the game's not even out. I'm not even sure if you've played the other two. Then you call Far Cry 4 a "yearly" sequel, when FC3 came out in 2012... Oh well, I digress.


Other four, you racist!! The best entry in the series isn't on PS3, so let's not turn a blind eye to it

 

And I'm also waiting for FC4. FC3 was great, Blood Dragon as well. Are there any games similar to these experiences?



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Oh boy more tears.
This is why you buy all three platforms and own a decent PC. The ability to play everything.
Gaming is my hobby.
Bring on Bayonetta 2!



It's just that simple.

Bayo 2 and fatal frame getting great scores!

Makes me wonder, has there ever been a GOTY that didn't break the 1 million barrier?


Journey and Demon's Souls on Gamespot.

Shadow of the Colossus on IGN (despite facing the fiercest competition from GTA:SA and Resident Evil 4) eventually it wouldn't just win IGN's GOTY award but also gets named "PS2's all-time best game"and the 2nd best game of the decade (2000-2009) on ANY system, only behind Half-Life 2.

I'll add Okami to IGN's list as well, which was GOTY 2006 if I remember right.
