Well, our Game of the Year 2008 was Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , but Media Molecule's innovative and immensely satisfying LittleBigPlanet was definitely in the running. And it won several of our other awards, too.
Therefore, we have absolutely no problem with a special Game of the Year edition, which is now scheduled to release later this year. According to MCV , the GotY edition will be packaged with much of the downloadable content that is currently available for LBP – and that's a lot of content – and let's not forget about the PSP version that should be on store shelves for the holiday rush. Sackboy really made an impression on the critics last year and the game was heralded as a true next-gen concept that delivered the customization and imagination goods in spades. We've heard talk about a possible sequel but with all the bonus extras that have appeared on the PSN, it's almost as if LBP is a sequel to itself…perhaps Media Molecule is working on another project that is equally worthy of our attention. As of now, LBP remains one of those games that anyone can pick up and play at any time, and is always great, family-friendly fun for multiple players, offline and online.
But if for some reason you haven't yet indulged in the creative genius that is LittleBigPlanet , you should definitely snag the Game of the Year Edition when it arrives.
