About the Awards
GameSpot's Best of 2010 awards cover special achievements in the field of advancements for games, dubious honors for less-than-admirable qualities, and full awards for individual genres and every major platform. Nominations and awards are the result of rigorous debate among GameSpot's editors, who select up to five finalists and one winner for almost every category (the Game of the Year category includes up to 10 finalists). To qualify for an editorial award, games must have been reviewed by GameSpot between January 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010.
Award categories are intended to call out those games that truly deserve the attention--therefore, while each award is meaningful, it's considered an honor simply to be nominated.
Best PSP Game
The PlayStation Portable continues to offer plenty of exciting games to play while you're away from your monitor or TV set. Whether you play on your own or with friends, the Best PSP Game award recognizes the best game on the platform--and there were plenty of great games to choose from this year.

Set in the realm of Greek mythology, God of War: Ghost of Sparta is a single-player game that allows players to take on the powerful role of Spartan warrior Kratos. This new adventure picks up after God of War concludes, telling the story of Kratos' ascension to power as the God of War. In his quest to rid himself of the nightmares that haunt him, Kratos must embark on a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds, and finally answer long-awaited questions about his dark past. Armed with the deadly chained Blades of Chaos, he will have to overcome armies of mythological monsters, legions of undead soldiers, and amazingly dangerous and brutal landscapes throughout his merciless quest.

probably the most satisfying game on any platform this generation, which is sad... this played much smoother and more engagingly than MGS4 did, and has more story and game play variety over Uncharted series.
@Advanracer, I'm still in a dreaaam, snake eateeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrr! Man, that song's epic. The game's even better, right? RIGHT? @Dawnofhero, yes, they're nasty, but metal gear solid peace walker isn't the place to talk about them being nasty.
I mean seriously, why would anyone even think of using the iPhone as a substitute portable gaming device when the PSP and DS has such amazing titles like this?
ive tried sooo hard to like metal gear solid games. alot of people love them and they always get phenomenal reviews ... but they just dont do anything for me. im not into the whole "stealth" thing. i dunno. ive played every mgs since ps2 and i just havent liked any of them. nonetheless, grats on psp goty! i know mgs has ALOT of fans
god of war games are nasty. kratos isn't even a hero. he's a loser villain who tears body parts off of people. :P
It's amazing how much this game got snubbed and wasn't even considered for nomination in so many categories. I think MGSPW should've been a nominee for GOTY. But I guess since it's out on a handheld...
Can't say it wasn't expected. MGS Peace Walker was one of the better games released this year. Handheld or not. It beated many home console games in my opinion.
The most ignored AAA game in all of gamespot's voting, both by editors and fans. I suppose PSP exclusivity didn't help.
Definitely one of the best handheld games I've ever had the pleasure of playing...actually, probably the best period.
