Killzone 2 missing in Spike TV’s Video Game awards!

Posted By | On 19th, Nov. 2009 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet

Killzone 2 can very well be one of the best shooters of 2009, but Spike TV have not listed the game as a nominee in their upcoming video game awards. They recently announced their game of the year nominees and Guerrilla Games premium first person shooter is no where to be seen on the list. The list is obviously populated with critically acclaimed games like Uncharted 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2 and Left 4 Dead 2, but the much hyped Killzone 2’s absence is a bit of surprise to many gamers around the world.

Killzone 2 deserved to be on the nominee list.

Killzone 2 deserved to be on the nominee list.

Killzone 2 was first shown at E3 2005 in the form of the infamous trailer that made people drop their jaws in shock. Killzone 2 not only bettered those visuals but also proved that it had the game play to match the outstanding graphics. It also got a super 9.5 out of a possible ten from us. The inclusion of Uncharted 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 seems fine but the exclusion of one of the premium shooters is very unfortunate indeed.

I am not sure on what the award commitee had discussed amongst themselves but I strongly belive that Killzone 2 should have atleast been discussed as a possible nominee. But it is a shock to the entire PlayStaion 3 and Killzone 2 community that the game has not made the final list. Last year Grand Theft Auto 4 won over the likes of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, so it raises the question. Do gamers need to take Spike TV’s Video Game awards seriously?

    Well Killzone 2 was just a good looking game. Nothing more and nothing less.

    In the best shooter list:
    Killzone 2, third option. You see, the Killzone 2 on the list and the Killzone 2 you are thinking of are the same game.

    killzone2 is just another FPS? then what about modern warfare 2 ? thats just another short 6 hour FPS with poor graphics than killzone 2 .. stop talking bullshit when you have not played killzone 2 ..

    killzone 2 is the best shooter and it should have won in the best shooter category. most shooters are the same but killzone 2 is a different breed because of the sim like controls, cover system , realistic physics, realistic animations, realistic ai, and stunning graphics. graphics are very important because it allows a player to distinguish between objects and allows better immersion. killzone 3 screenshots look amazing and i cant wait to see it in motion on my 3d bravia tv.

    This is just outrageous. KZ2 is one of the best games of 2009. It delivered exactly what it promised (the jaw dropping graphics that many people boldly claimed were not in the actual gameplay). They should replace L4D 2 with Killzone 2.
    @dylantalon : Thumbs up to your 3D tv 😉
