What game will be GOTY?

18366 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)
Ahh ok thanks. I dunno if I'll bother with the back story. I've read somewhere the story of AC is pretty good anyway

Gwizz said: I've ne'er played batman or skyrim, but
I've watched the trailers and seen gameplay, might pick them both up when I can afford them. Do I need to play the previous games to get the storyline?



I don't think so. I never played any games before Oblivion and I didn't have any issues.

Skyrim deserves GoTY imo. Second that with Arkham City
Uncharted 3 will be more of the same.
Who decides GoTY anyway?



Well gamespot gave demon souls the GOTY last year so it could happen.
Uncharted 3 or Skyrim
I kind of meant FPS's and RPG's when I was talking about PC games being superior.

And I love how this quickly became a shouting match over which franchise they love more.
Anyone who has said "definitely" in this thread is pretty ignorant :P
They're all gonna be amazing (Hopefully) Open yourself up to some new franchises if you haven't already :P
... nobody has been fighting or refuted your point ... :*O ?
Forza 4 needs to be looked at also. So much more to do offline and a online. Not saying it should or will get GOTY but it should be a contender atleast
SO MUCH YELLING AND FIGHTING IN THIS THREAD [Rage]

......kidding! escapeVektor is up there for my personal GOTY, along with Gemini Rue and Portal 2.

Lol, I didn't say that at all.
I was referring to the folk just saying THIS WILL WIN, nothing else :)

:P

I haven't played any indie games this year :/
Wait, Limbo was last year yeah?
@heller,tano,roy,ben,blabla

I hope you guys will have a seperate thing for indie game of the year. In past years did you have seperate categories? i can't remember

You forgot deus ex X_X

Don't know if it will be the GOTY, but I'd consider it a contender.

I really can't say who will win, there was some good games this year and some are still to come out.
Skyrim!
My go down to blockbuster and hire skyrim and/or batman AC to see if they are worth buying because the hype for them is unbelievable
Only one person mentioned 'Dead Space 2'. This game should be considered.
Does this forum site only have one GoTY title? Can this site also have GoTY contenders for specific categories - like 'Best Shooter', 'Best RPG', 'Best Action / Adventure', 'Best Puzzler'? If it's possible, then overlooked titles could be mentioned (eg. Dark Souls).

you might have some trouble hiring skyrim now, i'd wait till its released :P
Maybe just batman:p
How can people say skyrim for
GOTY if its not even out yet? When's release?

We didn't have an indie one but we definitely will this year. We just each chose a GOTY last year and then let the community decide.

probably skyrim because it's a multiplatform game that everybody loves. see the pattern: GOTY 2008 fallout 3; 2009: Uncharted 2; 2010: Mass Effect 2; 2011:Skyrim.

However, I'm personally looking forward to uncharted 3 the most, and that's my own favourite game to be picked for GOTY.

I think @Dicky and @Prime have both showed how Uncharted isn't quite for everyone. No game is, but maybe Skyrim being as large and varied as it is makes it more appealing on a broader scale?
How do games that aren't out yet 'deserve' anything? I'm pretty sure most people are confusing 'goty contender' with 'oo, what game am I most looking forward to?'
I just went to blockbuster and hired batman AC to see what all the fuss is
About haha
im most looking forward to saints row 3 but i know it wont get game of the year. i dont know anything about skyrim either.

but i do think uncharted 3 (i know its not out yet just judging by reviews) and batman AC are my picks to be up there for contention
Uncharted 3
Also, its important to recognise there are a million different GOTY awards out there.

Is there one which is considered the most prestigous to win?
