Back in the olden days, when everyone lived in mud huts and only had 56k internet connections, "Game of the Year Edition" was just a meagre title thrown on a game box to let you know it had probably sold eleventy gajillion copies. These days, with the futuristic magic of streaming television and 3D everything, a GOTY edition is a cause for celebration, as it usually has all kinds of fantastical free gubbins tacked on. Here are some of the highlights:

Fallout 3

After the phenomenal success of 2008's Fallout 3, developer Bethesda went on to produce five beefy add-on packs which added a significant chunk of new content to the game - including a rewritten ending. The Game of the Year disc collects this all into one convenient package.

I misread that one actually, I thought you meant the steelbook of the collectors edition. Either way it SUCKS they advertised it as having the extra maps then completely taking a dump on everyone while charging more for what is essentially a better looking front cover.

Nothing, even the disc is the same! It is just the packaging in the case that is different. Mildly annoying.

What was in that one exactly? Probably a DVD & Artbook right?

I don't why no has mentioned it yet (Or if it has, I don't see it.) but the Modern Warfare GOTY Edition only included the maps for a limited time, now it's nothing more than a fancy case.

This article made me wonder how many there actually were, pleasantly surprised you could find 10 of them.

Only other one I can think of is Burnout: Paradise, The Ultimate Box, which can now be picked up new for less than just one of its previously released DLCs.

Forza 3 Ultimate comes out tomorrow I think.
