They're both definitely great games, but in my opinion too similar to the past entries of the series. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs expect typos since I'm on da phone.

Even though BO2 is the most different CoD entry since MW4... did you even play it? I'm not too fond of CoD, but at least be informed about the games. --- Read the mania: http://www.fanfiction.net/~nonexistinghero In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

they're both cheap cash-in sequels to horrible games?

Yea i play black ops 2 all the time, but it was exactly what i expected. Not that it's a bad thing, but they're kinda like sports games now where there are slight refreshing new things but overall no surprises. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs expect typos since I'm on da phone.

Both games have made significant changes to their standard formula. I'm sorry they're not for you, but saying they don't deserve awards is a matter of opinion. --- 3DS Friend Code: 4871-3347-4144

The formula is a proven success in both cases, and they always improve. I see where you're coming from though. --- GT: Tommy XD001 3DS FC: 4682-8954-0442

Saying they do deserve awards is a matter of opinion too. That's why i brought it up on a message board dood. So we can talk about it. I was really surprised that ign gave best ds/3ds game to BW2 instead of kid icarus, which in my opinion is one of the best handheld games within the past 5 years. Usually their opinions are really similar to mine but lately they've been a lot different. Then i got to thinking about what BW2 is similar to in it's approach, and it felt a lot like a COD entry, where the game improves on the previous one, but not by too much. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs expect typos since I'm on da phone.

Also i definitely agree with the guy who mentioned mario, but only with the new super mario bros ones. Paper Mario and the main entries always add something substantially new to the gameplay. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs expect typos since I'm on da phone.

I haven't had the chance to play Kid Icarus yet but it is near the top of my list of games to buy. So I can't comment on whether or not it deserves game of the year. Personally I dislike game of the year awards anyway. There are tons of great games out there and labeling one as better than all the others makes the others look like they're not as good, at least in the eyes of the casual public that doesn't pay attention to these things. --- 3DS Friend Code: 4871-3347-4144
