While many websites had a full roster of games on their GoTY list, Games Thirst decided that since we're about to abandon the blogspot and go to our new URL that we would not have a full roster of titles on ours, but instead pit two of 2009's biggest titles head-to-head and let our readership choose. And chose they did.
The polls were open for two months, and over the course of that time 4346 voted; an astounding number that a lot of established websites haven't attain, and a great achievement for our humble blog. But what's even greater is the sheer amount of people who voted to give Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of The Year over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Here's the breakdown:
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves: 3031 Votes or 69 percent.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: 705 votes or 16 percent.
Who cares? I'm buying both anyway: 610 votes or 14 percent.
Overwhelmingly, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves defeated its competition to win Games Thirst Game of The Year Honor! A well deserved win for Naughty Dog's stellar effort. We're not the only ones who've crowned the game with said honor, many more gaming sites, the VGAs and other gaming award events have done the same. Our hope is that Naughty Dog builds on the success of the game and bring us even better ones in the future. So we here at Games Thirst solute you! Uncharted 3 anybody?
