Demon souls.....hooooleeeeey ****!

Then I got kicked back to my world, no loot, and like he sent me a tell GG!" vs "me and 24 other of my close friends (or they could be complete nobodies) just ran through this epic dungion in icecrown, dude this boss with this BAD ASS axe just wails on us! We quickly put together a stratagy to follow, beat him, and got phat lewts!"

Uncharted 2 is better is so many aspects. Better story, better graphics, better "flow", more appealing to a higher number of gamers (it takes a special kind of gamer to squeeze real enjoyment out of Demon's Souls), better....hell, Uncharted 2 is probably better than Demon's Souls in nearly every way.

Demon's Souls is a better choice than Modern Warfare 2 though.
As a huge fan of the Uncharted series I can't agree with most of this statement. Uncharted 2 is definitely better looking, but beyond that I don't see anything it has over Demon's Souls that would make it GotY.

IMO "mass appeal" is exactly why Demon's Souls won't get more GotY awards, but I don't think that should have any bearing on the decision. Today's average gamer is used to dumbed down easy game play, and that so called "special" gamer of today would have just been any old gamer 10 or 15 years ago. The fact that the game isn't mass appeal is one of it's most redeeming qualities.

Demon's Souls is a throwback to when games were actually difficult. It's also one of the few games in recent years that makes your pulse race and gives you that sense of accomplishment when you finally pass that boss or area that was kicking your ass before. Never once did i feel that sense of accomplishment, get sweaty palms, yell or cheer at the television after an amazing battle, get an adrenaline rush, etc. from Uncharted 2 like I did with Demon's Souls.

Uncharted 2 is no doubt a great game, but it's one of those soon forgotten games where six months down the road when someone asks about it all you can tell them is, "it's great" or has "amazing graphics". Demon's Souls is the kind of game that brings back memories of playing it every time you hear the name, and that's the true measure of a great game IMO.

Lol, you again with comparing single player games to MMOs. And are you seriously saying that WoW should be GotY?

Get over it already.

Poor choice IMHO. Demon's Souls is decent, but far from GOTY... Dragon Age is better, Uncharted 2 is better, AC2 is better. And I'm talking mere enjoyment here. Not type etc. As a whole...

All I can think of when going back to the "great" times of Demon's Souls is annoying... That's its biggest characteristic. I think "amazing" about U2, "amazing" about AC2, "epic" for DA. "Annoying" for Demon's Souls...

Never played it, can't really comment. When I get my PS3 back I will grab it and see then, but personally I would be surprised if I like it THAT much. The kind of RPGs I like is just not the kind of RPG Demon's Souls is, from what I know about it.

I also thought Killzone 2 was very overrated, there were probably 10 FPS games I would put on that list before Killzone 2.

These GotY awards really mean nothing, it is just the opinion of one small group or even one person.

Great game. GOTY material? Probably not. But hell, I have 40+ hours in it and I am still playing it

It's only an opinion O.o

My personal GOTY would be either UC2 or Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Sorry, I'm a sucker for 2D games also).

Same here. After that review I'm interested in it but I still have games to finish.

Do it, it's an AWESOME game. I have a second character that is only about a level 32. Let me know if you get it, I will play some co-op with you.

Heh, that's interesting. I got Demon's Soul for Christmas. Hooray. Now I have to wait one more week until I get home where PS3 is at so I can play... before school starts again.

Rent it. I'm gonna rent it just from the small review in this thread. I saw this game on the shelves but never payed attention to it. I love stumbling upon good games like this.
