LittleBigPlanet and Killzone win Game Critics Awards


Was there any doubt that LittleBigPlanet is the most original game of E3? The Game Critics Awards have named Media Molecule's 2D wonder the "Best Original Game" of E3 this year (a week after we named it the best PS3 game; and Joystiq also named it the "Best Original Game").

In addition, Killzone earned special honors in graphics -- it didn't match the visual fidelity of the original trailer, but boy did it get close.

Finally, the Game of the Show was Rock Band ... a multiplatform release that'll find its way on PS3. Not a bad line-up of awards for the PS3, no?

1. I will have to pass on Rock Band just because those peripherals are too expensive.

Killzone 2 looks great.

LBP looks great as well.

2. KZ2 doesnt release till 08 by that time i would expect graphics even closer to the cg trailer. LBP is a most by so much artistic control with elements that actually affect the game. nice to see the ps3 is getting some respect for its graphics LBP show it off too. be prepared to have a whole bunch of anime based level design its. OMG NO MORE NARUTO GOD DAMN!!!

3. "Please dont be a dumb xbot and flame it."

Well since you put it that way....

WTF!?

I could careless about LBP. That's just me. I'm not flaming it, I'm just saying what my opinion is. I'm sure it will be an awesome game.

Also, wtf is with the childish (suppose to be funny or trying to prove something) name calling? Honestly, It's stupid. It would be ok if you're a 4 year old, but you're not! I just wish some people would grow up.

4. thanks for reminding everyone that it didnt match andrew (very fanboy of you, go hug your wii) .. i thought it was cooler .. anyone else with me?

It takes a bigger man to walk away.

Your response clearly shows you need to grow up too.

6. No suprises here... I'm sure we will see many more awards given out in Ps3's favor from here on out... Congrats tho for the good work and keep pumping out the quality games, in the end that is what makes a system #1 and if games keep coming out with this high of quality standards I really dont see PS3 ever falling behind again(not that it fell behind, but slow start, you know).

You know, I never knew expressing one's opinion of a subject is considered childish. It takes a bigger man to actually leave a comment that has no childish comment in it. Walking away doesn't solve a problem, it keeps it alive longer. Which isn't a good thing at all. Also, shouldn't you have not commented? I mean in grown up world, when someone is talking to someone else, you don't jump into it like a high school conversation. The comment wasn't even directed towards you.

9. Sorry Double post.

Posted at 3:14PM on Aug 1st 2007 by Killer

10. 4 posts too many, killer. he wasnt calling you childish, he said "if you think the game is childish or not your cup of tea, please dont flame it". re-read his post. sounds like a valid request.

just seeing how many people went crazy for modding their paint jobs in forza, i expect that the majority of gamers (360 users included) are going to absolutely love the creativity of lbp.

Posted at 3:46PM on Aug 1st 2007 by GRANTED

11. Was Echochrome not playable? That game blew my mind.

Posted at 4:49PM on Aug 1st 2007 by Heliophage

12. actually the overwhelming majority of positive reviews for lbp cite its creativity. creativity. creativity. (and the physics engine looks cool). give props to the devs for at least approaching gaming from a new perspective.


side note: i dont think kz2 looks that great either but having fully dynamic lighting is pretty cool. if pgr4 had it then... well, nevermind.

Posted at 6:27PM on Aug 1st 2007 by GRANTED

13. Actually I am more impressed with the concept of LBP rather than how great it looks.

We are talking about critics and graphics because thats what the post is about.

If it(the post) was about Sony's broad selection of genres we would talking about how Sony has more than just shooters and racers.

If it was about free online we would talk about how we don't need to pay $60 a year for advertisements.

I hope you love your ChainZaw Gunz!!!111 FtWWWWW!!!zz

15. @Killer: You prove that your lack of understanding to the actual CONTENT of the post (you were referring to) makes you sound arrogant and childish. Particularly focusing on the XBot part. If you ARE a man, as you say, you'd apologise for your knee jerk response and then tell us what you found in his post that was offensive to you. That's the ADULT way of doing things, my friend.

@GearsMaster: O_o
Quoted: **LittleBigPlanet? Childish game that all you sony fanboys would be bitching and making fun of Nintendo Wii owners IF it were coming out on the Wii.**
I still think you don't understand the concept behind the game. Sure, it looks childish, and it's a platformer (traditionally what we associate with Mario, et al), but being able to build levels and upload them into a YouTube type community where you can then hook up with others and play/build/create/rate said levels... this having never been done before, represents a player-centric view of gaming. THAT is why I'm excited about LBP. What you need to do is to realise that games don't have to have violence and tits in them to be good.

Quoted: **KillZone 2 doesn't look any better than the best looking games on the 360 so all this hype surrounding the graphics is beyond stupid.**
So, you've seen it in HD and you're not impressed with the graphics? I suppose that's your opinion, but what about the gameplay? Looks like it plays decent, right? So, your point is, what? Get Gears of War or Halo?... Ok. Write to Microsoft and DEMAND they port it to the PS3... Erm, you DO know that's the system we're talking about here, right?...

@Rock Band Too Expensive: o.O Are you F'N joking with me??? You bought the most expensive console on the market - don't whine about how much the game WITH peripherals cost! The game itself is $60 and will take GH3 to school! I am so SHOCKED ( =O ) with all of you guys!!! So, what if the bundle costs the same as a Wii?? You don't have to buy the whole BUNDLE! =S
Sheesh!... it's almost like no one can afford a Big Mac around here!... =P

16. Mistake: this having never been done before, represents a player-centric view of gaming.

I meant to say: this having never been done before, represents a player-centric view of game design.

Sorry about that! =D

17. @ console cwby
I couldnt agree with you more, I don't think alot of xbox and wii fanboys who flame in ps3 forums know much about these games, know why they are important or impressive, or understand the concepts behind them. Sometimes I think they have only seen one trailer in low-res once and had a knee jerk biased reaction to it and are flaming this thread in a response to there disappointment that these games are being recognized with awards and are also exclusive to the console they don't own, and they are seemingly filled with the "all to cool" anti-sony hatred.

LBP is a great example of how PS3 is taking gaming in a new innovative "game 3.0" direction, with the tools in hand, gamers will create and share there own content, thus creating endless playability. This is why this is cool guys? its never been done before, and its being done, in a very cool way indeed.

KZ2 needs to get props for delievering on that infamous trailer they showed 2 years ago. The graphics ARE amazing, and truly "next next gen" or whatever you want to call it. The animations and ragdoll physics were said and reviewed after E3 to be amazing, the lighting, phenomenal, the destructable enviroments (albeit not crysis destructable, but destructable all the same. The game looks great, and I think they are upset that they won't get to play it.

Quote "gearsmaster"


"Critics"....LMAO

So we should all base our decisions on what the critics say huh?

"

critics are critics because they are good at what they do, they have good judgement and experience and unlike "SOME" they are relatively (arguable with some sites like gametrailers) unbiased. They add interesting perspective and most importantly have played the game, unlike anyone in this thread, and unlike yourself gearmaster of gears and such. I personally take value in their opinions because they bring valuable input into my buying decisions. Your statment here shows that you are a biased GoW MSBOT because you are unwilling to look at "experts" opinions that show sony in a positive light, all you are interested in hearing is that XBOX has more shooters and PS3 has no shooters, the mere idea that PS3 is getting exclusives and positive reviews has driven you to flame-off in a totally non-xbox related forum. good-luck with your frustration when sony gets even more praise this holiday season, when killer titles start pumping out and sony enters a 40Gb PS3 at 399.99 and sales pile like an avalanche overshadowing xbox360 completely and overtake market share, wii overtakes xbox360 as well , and your precious microsoft moneymaker doesnt look so hot anymore. please place that thing under an icepack or else you will become a 50% failure rate statistic.

18. wow, holy, i just read this guy gearmasters posts in other threads, he sounds manic. Like bizzarely "anti-sony" (because thats whats cool right now) completely over-the-top hostile and completely ignorant on the facts. This guy won't consider any opinion that doesnt coincide with his own derranged nightmare. I think he has a teddybear named sony that he stabs at night while rocking back and fourth. I find his obsession with posting in these threads very disturbing, he needs to get a life, or silkscreen antisony t-shirts with his bloody "sonybear" on the front and sell them to other MSBOTS at a premium. Seems to be enough of them. Hope he has a fun weekend smashing blurays and spending 18 hrs a day posting in playstation forums on topics he knows nothing about. Why does this boy have so much time on his hand? Is his xbox in the shop for the 3rd time? soooo bizzzzare, just so wierd. probably wears xbox360 jammies while stabbbing that poor sonybear. what a freak.

I couldn’t agree with you more.
I’ve been reading ps3fanboy for 4 months now and have noticed quite a few posters on this site, and some really stand out from the norm.
People like gearsmaster aka johnyboy or whoever he is are complete tossers! I have all the consoles and while I can’t stand MS I’m not going to be aggorant and dislike the games I want on their console. Namely Bioshock and Blue Dragon. BUT I don’t go to Xboxfanboy and flame them about how defective the system is… Just not kewl… So here’s to you gearsmaster and all the others that are xbot fanboys… Take you bias comments and stick to the site that you so rightfully deserve. (People like you give Xbox a bad name and its people like you that make others and I dislike your favored console even more)

Act like a jerk and you’ll be forever titled as one…

Cheers
