5 Reasons Cabela's Latest Insane Hunting Game Looks Like A Surefire Game Of The Year Candidate

Cabela's latest hunting/horror hybrid is here and I'm not sure I even have words to describe it. I'll just go with amazing. Here's 5 reasons it's a GOTY candidate... (Activision, Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013, Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

I love these type games!
SwiderMan  +   1207d ago
I'm a big fan of Big Buck Hunter Pro on the Wii, so this should be interesting.
Nocturne147  +   1207d ago
Agreed, these games are fun to play.
ZBlacktt  +   1206d ago
Yep, I've played them all. The only part I get bugged about is tryng to use a controller in th arcade section. It always stop me from the Plat trophy. Unless I go buy that gun....awh no.

I just can not find it in me to shoot that mountain lion - I know its just a game but I would feel guilty shooting that creature when all she is trying to do is hunt for food for her starving cubs :(

I also skipped the No russians level in COD cause I did not feel right shooting those people.

Then you are just a pussy.
Rettom  +   1206d ago
No, it's just you guys judging people for their beliefs. I'm fine will killing something that's trying to kill me, that's not a pussy. Calling people names is being a pussy lol.
PockyKing  +   1207d ago
Lol, I hope this is satire because a Cabela's game will NEVER reach GOTY status. Fun games yes, but the last game felt like Call of Duty with animals.
bubblebeam  +   1207d ago
lol. The last one a played was years ago on the ps2 (probably like 7 years ago). I had a lot of fun.

But I know there arew plenty of others, and the graphics are really dated, like they don't even try.
It wuld be sooo easy if they put the money from al the games they made into one awesome one, and sell much more.

Stupid game....Animals should be honored instead of killed.
smokey_vols  +   1207d ago
Muffins1223  +   1207d ago
In other words....your the guy who thinks we should honor virtual animals... -_-
BillyCostigan  +   1207d ago
lol...shouldn't human lives be honored as well? More so than animals, arguably?
iamgoatman  +   1207d ago
Ok... but these aren't animals, they're pixels made to look like animals, so you can go ahead and kill as many as you like.
bubblebeam  +   1207d ago
I would honour animals, but when I look at my dog, licking his mud and crap covered testicles, I cannot feel anything but pity and or shame.

Maybe you think your in the Lion King or something.
ALLWRONG  +   1206d ago
How do you have 5 bubbles with statements like that?
iamgoatman  +   1206d ago
He's been here over 3 years and made 6 comments, thats how.
specialguest  +   1206d ago
oh shut up!!
Yes, because you've never killed living creatures/animals in any games you've played in the past. /s

If you play RPGs, you would've killed countless innocent creatures who were minding their own business until you came along and slayed them for their dropped items and gold.

In platform games, you would've mercilessly stomped on them, shot them, torched them, etc.

In fps/tps, you would've shot them just to see if its possible.

Reminds me of Afrika/Hakuna Matata. Except you shoot pictures.
FinaLXiii  +   1207d ago
MW3 Chaos mode with animals.
Letros  +   1206d ago
"Remember, no barking"
DanielBryan  +   1207d ago
I think I'll hold off for Activisions Baby Seal Clubbing game instead./s
MysticStrummer  +   1207d ago
The only way this could possibly be GotY is if Cabela's catalog names it so.
NeoTribe  +   1207d ago
Umm no. Not happening now or ever. These games are always crap.
Skate-AK  +   1207d ago
Visually the environment looks wayyy better and more varied than 2012.
XGN_Alex  +   1207d ago
It'll be good to see if there's been any improvements. Games like this have been getting a bit stale of late.
SolidDuck  +   1207d ago
Blueknife is a dumbass
HeavenlySnipes  +   1207d ago
Hopefully Halo doesn't release on the same day again lol
ExCest  +   1206d ago
O dear god. Someone is gonna die.
ajax17  +   1206d ago
From the trailer they definitely seem to be going in the right direction; still it isn't enough to be a game of the year nominee. I'm more interested with how a game such as this will look on next-gen consoles. Now THAT will be something!
Shotcalm  +   1206d ago
Fat chance! LOL
Instigator  +   1206d ago
The sarcasm is strong with this one.
OmniSlashPT  +   1206d ago
GOTY candidate? looks like a 6/10 to me lmao gimmicks aside it could be a 7/10.
ALLWRONG  +   1206d ago
Lets execute some animals like closet serial killers and pretend it's sport.

I prefer human hunting games
PS3Freak  +   1206d ago
This entire article is absolutely overflowing with sarcasm. Its done rather well.

That trailer is awful.
Philoctetes  +   1206d ago
Agree. The 2nd page of the article was quite funny. Better order two copies of the game in case you wear your first one out.
slaton24  +   1206d ago
this isnt even hunting where are the tree stands the decoys the bait and other equipment all it is now is u walking press a button shows location to walk to and than shows the animals dude that isnt hunting that is like here i am just shoot me and get it over with...deer hunter 3 for the pc years ago was a hunting game
MattyG  +   1206d ago
