Why Assassin’s Creed III Won’t be Game of the Year

And, in Truth, Probably Won’t Even be Game of the Month

Everyone seems very excited about the new Assassin’s Creed game, and why shouldn’t they? AC was one of the first games release for PS3, and remains one of my favourite games of all time; with its realistic atmosphere, epic freestyle climbing and challenging assassinations, it created a game that was a joy to behold. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

But Assassin's Creed Liberation will be game of the Vita for sure. Right?
Cam977  +   881d ago
Yes, it will be GOTY - AC3 that is.

No, Journey will.

O RLY, the only competition AC3 has is dishonored(new ip, and new ips hardly win GOTY), and borderlands 2 (which was okay but it seemed meh to me), i doubt halo has a chance, and we all know resident evil 6 desnt deserve it.

AC 1 was repetitive!!

Outside of AC3 the only other games I can imagine being nominated for GoTY are Borderlands 2, Mass Effect 3, Hitman: Absolution (Assuming it lives up to expectations), Dishonored, Xenoblade Chronicles, Guild Wars 2 and Halo 4.

OPM gave Absolution a 9/10, so it's safe to say that you can rest easy on that uncertainty.

Haha Lego lord of the rings and RE6 will be better? Riiiiight. Assassins creed doesn't have to be a stealth game. Id say it's definitely more action-ey than anything.
Dmd  +   881d ago
He actually have a point: the series should have had a better stealth approach, the combat should be much harder/letal and there should be a sense of danger when you fail to be stealthy and get ambushed by ten armed guards in a alley. Afterall, no matter how great your badass meter is, you are still one man against the world.
That being said, it's not a deal breaker, not even close. The series have it's flaws and/or missed opportunities, but it does shines in every other way. Those are top quality games with rich story and atmosphere and going through them all to the very end are almost always (I’m looking at you, Revelations…) a blast! Not sure if it will be goty, but I believe it will be MY goty just like AC2 were when it came out!
