What game will be GOTY?

19030 Views 149 Posts MMGN.com
For the first time in a very long time, we actually seem to have some GREAT games coming out, and we can't forget earlier this years Portal 2.

I think we can rule Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 out, as they both don't seem to be doing anything TOO new, or even too well :/
I'm sure they'll both be good shooters, but I doubt we'll be going back to them in a few years, which is what I think really makes a great game.

So, I think the candidates we have, and please tell me if I'm forgetting any.

Portal 2
Batman Arkham City
Uncharted 3
Zelda: Skyward Sword
Skyrim

I haven't played Batman yet, but I absolutely loved Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 1 and 2, the Zelda series and Oblivion, so, I just can't wait for exams to finish so I can play all of these games :P

What do you think will be the best from those few, or if you think one I haven't mentioned will be better?

I think probably Zelda, the Nintendo magazine already called it the best Zelda game to date, though they could just be throwing that around :P
It really does look great though, hell, all of these games look great.

It's gonna be an amazing next few months regardless :D

(apologies if there's already a thread like this, I couldn't find it)
As much as I wish Zelda would, I would have to say Skyrim.
It's so ground-breaking on so many levels, and considering Oblivion also won GOTY, as long as they improve on the story with Skyrim then I reckon it will win.

I want the following to be 2011 GOTY...

Arkham City has my vote up to this current date. Could change.

I dont think Unchartered will get it. The developers have said the improvement from the sequel to the third is nowhere near as large as the improvement from the original to the second.

None of them are groundbreaking. I know exactly what to expect from all of them except Zelda. I think that could have a few surprises. I don't see how Skyrim can move past the Oblivion formula by too much.

And for UC3 the developers were specifically talking GRAPHICALLY.
Have you played Uncharted 2? It looks spectacular, I don't care at all that Uncharted 3 isn't much better than that :P
I don't think Arkham City will be GOTY since there's nuthin ground breaking or new just different story. A good GOTY is sumthing that is unique or change the video game culture it doesn't need to have a 10/10 review score just a game that stands out in that year. This year will be hard to tell since so many great titles r coming out.
IMHO, Dark Souls should be in contention too.
I read something like that on Kotaku as well. I haven't seen/ready anything about that game.
Sucks for it, coming out in this time when all the big franchises are dominating.

and LMA0, I'd agree with you most of the time, but I feel that it's different with UC3 and Batman, because a lot of it relies on the storyline, because the gameplays already been established.

If UC3 had the most compelling, hilarious and action packed story ever, I'd happily slap GOTY on it.

I also gotta say, I love how none of those games are really in direct competition, we really have something for everyone this year :D
Skyrim is all that needs to be said here.
I don't think you can rule out LA Noire. I know it was hit and miss with gamers, but the critics loved it and loved the new ground it broke.

i think skyrim will be goty
I'm going to +1 all the rimmers in this thread~

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim FTW!!! (*) (*) (*) [MOG] [MOG] [MOG] *_* *_* *_*
Considering the track-record Bethesda have with these things, Skyrim.

Fallout New Vegas didn't even work and still has a million game breaking bugs.

Fallout New Vegas wasn't developed by Bethesda....

And Ben, I've got LA Noire sitting right next to me lol, never even touched it.
I thought I'd love it, but I never bothered because I thought it was panned all across the board.

Maybe I'll give it a shot :P
PORTAL 2
i pleyed portal 2 for two hours and havent touched it since
It's too early call, it's much better to play them first when they're out to judge.

Has a 89 on Metacritic - www.metacritic.com/...

Doesn't sound like a panning to me :P

That's kind of the point of predicting isn't it...?

And yeah, I dunno why I thought it was bad, do you think I'd like it?
Here are my contenders

Skyrim
Uncharted 3
Gears of War 3
Batman Arkham City
Dark Souls
Zelda Skyward Sword

But I think Skyrim will win GOTY, cause it's something that players have been wanting for a long time.

Personally id like to see Uncharted 3 win GOTY, but I think Skyrim will take it.
Blob
+
Skyward Sword! :D
Skyrim's gonna be the easiest game to disappoint everyone though :P

Already good reviews flying in for Batman, Uncharted and Zelda.
No word at all on Skyrim yet.
