    Best online experience: Dark Souls?

    What.

    I mean it's a nice way to do it, but I wouldn't say it's the best online experience by a long shot!

    You know, Edge have never scored a Halo FPS less than a 9.

    Also, wtf at 'Studio of the Year'?

    cue the hate.... :)

    Best online dark souls?! it never worked while i was playing!

    similarly audio design? it was atmospheric but didn't strike me as being crafted incredibly well on the whole. I would have given that to Battlefield 3.

    For once I agree with Edge: DS was indeed the best online experience. It was highly unique and made a change from the usual shooter death match/coop games.

    Guess they really liked Deus Ex:HR. As did a lot of people, to be fair.

    Nintendo put out 3 titles on that list, so I can understand them winning that category.

    Why did they give the new Saints Row a low-ish score?

    Man, they've got a real boner for Zelda this year. I can't wait to play it and see if I agree.

    They always give Nintendo publisher of the year. I suspect they would do so even if Nintendo didn't release any games at all one year.

    Ignore the Edge review, it is a little silly and hyperbolic. Game itself is still fantastic though, much better structured and more variety than Twilight Princess.

    Also, remember that iirc Nintendo also published Xenoblade here, so that probably helped with the publisher category.

    Nintendo made Super Metroid. That alone ensures that they should win "Publisher of the Year" every year for the rest of time.
  • Deleted user 16 December 2011 15:26:25
    Well it is a first party game, they also publish capcom and other developers games on their systems.

    They really need to make another 2D metroid. Good list, I haven't finished Zelda yet but its a fantastic game and it deserves praise.

    I'm playing Super Metroid on the Wii VC these days and it has never been equalled by any videogame in the years since.
