So if you hadn’t noticed, we kept the poll up for a bit longer this time around, as the tide seemed to change just about every other day between the games listed. The poll is definitely more spread out now though, with a clear cut winner and the other games taking their rightful places. The way the poll ended up is actually exactly how I predicted it would, with Bioshock Infinite in first place, Metro Last Light in second and Tomb Raider in third.
Bioshock was always destined to be the winner simply because the game looks utterly fantastic. The characters, setting and gameplay all look outstanding and we have yet to even see very much of the game. Of course, we could say the same for Metro Last Light, and I”m going to assume that our interviews had an impact on boosting the score, but I’m glad THQ is marketing the hell out of Metro Last Light, as 2033 was one of the best games this generation, in my opinion. There’s no other shooter like it on the market, save for Stalker, and it’s definitely a game that once you pick up, you’ll be so immersed that you can put it back down.
Tomb Raider looked great at E3 2012 this year and won multiple Game of the Show awards at outlets such as IGN. I didn’t exactly agree at first, but when Gamespot released the three videos we posted up the other day, I understood why. The latest Tomb Raider is basically Uncharted 2, but featuring a woman as the main character. After watching the gameplay demos, it gave me the feeling I had after watching Uncharted 2 for the first time, just a feeling of exploration and excitement.
This months poll is going to focus on OnlySP’s E3 reader Game of the Show. Yes, we don’t give the developers anything for winning our awards (sorry!), but we want to know which game has you the most excited. The list is only going to be a certain number of games that we felt truly deserved “Game of the Show”, so make sure you place your vote, and when we decide to end the poll, we’ll let you know what our vote was.
Thanks for checking back in today, and we hope you continue to keep following OnlySP as things are really starting to pick up around here.
