In the description above the nominees, it said: "Two finalists also achieved 10 out of 10 scores when we reviewed them earlier this year, but don't think that automatically makes one of them the winner." Well, in MGS4's case, it does.
Best PS3 Game
In what has arguably been the best-ever year for games, the PlayStation 3 has undoubtedly had its strongest showing to date. Finalizing a top five was tough, not because we couldn't think of five games worthy of being nominated, but because we could very easily have made it a top 10. One of the arguments we often hear leveled against the PS3 is that it doesn't have as many great exclusive games as the competition, but the fact that only two of our top five PS3 games of the year can be played elsewhere makes a compelling case to the contrary. Two finalists also achieved scores of 10 out of 10 when we reviewed them earlier this year, but don't think that that automatically makes one of them the winner.
Voting Results:Best PS3 Game
|Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots|

Readers' Choice Winner
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots features an aging and exhausted Solid Snake in the middle of a futuristic battlefield. In spite of his failing body, Snake is equipped with a crucial new device tentatively known as "OctoCamo," a high-tech suit that dynamically transforms its texture based on Snake's surroundings. This revolutionary new gameplay mechanic allows him to seamlessly blend into the environment, providing him with the means to stalk his enemies like never before. This latest chapter in Hideo Kojima's legendary tactical espionage action series marks the return of several characters from previous Metal Gear Solid games including Revolver Ocelot, Meryl Silverburgh, Naomi Hunter and Raiden, and features an unforgettable story that depicts the desperate state of the future as seen through the eyes of an older Solid Snake.
mgs4 has opened my eyes. changed the way i look at games. it is the best game i ever played and I'm a pro gamer. i really recommend this game to Ev3ry 1. truly the best game ever. I'm afraid there wont be any games like it. i really wish they wouldn't had made it now so that i could have this feeling inside me some other aspect of my life. that is all. ( pro: pc gamer/ ps3 gamer / xbox360 gamer )
This is a no-brainer. Whoever dosen't say MGS4 is the best PS3 game must be stripped of every game and console he/she has. The game is the most award-winning and highest rated PS3 game. There is no way it can't win. (Just look at the polls)
@Glenngodfather Wow, you sure like to bash MGS4 (and I like commenting on your drivel). Anyway, I agree with minimme.
man the 360 only had one exclusive game as a nominee the ps3 had 3 not fair again and the nominees for 360 where all lame
Oh my god i think i Hideo Kojima is a genius. He put in zero effort to make a woeful game and he gets critical acclaim for it. He definately has a few tips he can share with the rest of us. Best game of the year is Call Of Duty 5
Who the F*** is voting for little big planet for ANYTHING positive?? That game makes me ashamed to have ever called myself a gamer. After having played that game, I am now dumber, uglier, and an overall worse person than I was before I played that game. I would rather build a $5000 PC and only see a blue-screen-of-death than play that game. I now have to go shower as I feel violated by the malware you call big planet. Ick.
For sure MGS4 is a fantastic game and I myself started playing it all over again once I completed it, but I am also surprised that GTA IV didn't poll more votes.......I also began playing that once again after completing it and in it's own right that is a great game too!
ha most good 360 games blend in with other good 360 games. but those few great PS3 games are EPIC. interesting... the EPIC games for PS3 to me (gran turismo and MGS) the ones people will drop $$$$ for an hd tv and a ps3 arnt made in this country...when the do something they do it right
again MGS 4 :P can't it stop :lol: but now when I look at the "Best PC game" it had 19238 votes, the "Best PS3 game" has 19220 votes and the "Best X360 game" has 18680" votes and I laways thought that X360 pool will have at least 2000 votes more and PC pool 2000 less votes but it showed other :lol: my vote got LBP :D
Point well taken sigma, I was more referring to the non-award coverage, i.e. the hype, the freakin '10' score it didn't deserve in my opinion. I see that MGS4 is kickin az in these awards.
adamrich81:"While MGS4 is a great game, I would expect GS to be all over GTA" Really? Every (non-dubious) category that MGS4 has been in, it's won. How can you be shocked at this?
Hm. GS and I actually picked the same game that time. While MGS4 is a great game, I would expect GS to be all over GTA nuts like they have been, or the amazing ingenuity of LBP. That was a hard field to pick I admit though.
notice how xbox games are all third party for that award where ps3 are mostly all exclusives show how much better ps3 is
my best games metal gears solid4 and grand theft auto 4 and resistance 2 that what i know metal gear solid 4 design character is great there outfit enemy is cool that be best of 2008 winner of PS3
What the hell are Burnout and GTA4 doig here. Shouldn't the nominees in this category be PS3 exclusives?
Disappointed to see that Valkyria Chronicles didn't make the list but I'm a huge MGS4 fan so I'm happy nontheless
i cant believ it mgs 4 is peace of shet it should of been resistance 2 or littile big planet or burnout paradise i mean come on mgs 4 sucks
