Assassin's Creed 3 Review: Declination of Independence | Joystiq

Joystiq: "I expect most players will come for Connor's story in Assassin's Creed 3, and they'll find that its well told but detrimental to player agency. It's sad to see the game lose sight of those ideals in favor of bombast, bomb blasts and pig herding. Assassin's Creed 3 is the kind of game that's just good enough to make you wish it was better. (Just don't even get me started on the ending.)" (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/5

Welp, that leaves us with Mass Effect 3, Dishonored, and Borderlands 2 (Halo 4 could be added to that list) for Game of the Year contenders. It wouldn't surprise me if each game won a few on different sites, but Dishonored and Mass Effect 3 seem to be the leaders.

Who do you think will win the most? And which game is your personal GOTY (so far)?

I'm still leaning towards Dragon's Dogma.

Reckon XCOM is in there with a shout.

Unless Halo or BLOPS2 blows everyone away (which I doubt), I think you'll see a split between the publications.

I was expecting slightly better reviews for AC3 but I'm sure it'll still be a GOTY contender. Journey is my PGOTY so far.

mine might be journey or xcom, Xcom would be at the top if it weren't for the general bugginess

My GOTY would be Dark Souls: Prepare to Die, as it released just a couple of months ago on PC. Although, runners-up for me are XCom and Hotline Miami.

Darksiders 2 > all those you just listed. except maybe borderlands.

My list isn't based off of which games I think deserve to win GOTY, but rather which games were reviewed highest this year and as such are the most likely to win. With a lot of big games getting shuffled back to 2013 this year is pretty up for grabs.

My personal GOTY is Borderlands 2, but that's because I've had the most fun with it. Playing with two of my friends online has been a lot of fun. Lots of chaos, joking around, etc.

Dishonored, Halo 4, Borderlands 2, Mass Effect 3 and Silent Hill: Downpour

Far Cry 3 will be GoTY, probably.
