Oh the 9th reason is there's really no other AAA games this year. Just a few

No other AAA titles? AC3, Borderlands 2, Dishonored, Halo 4 and the critics will undoubtedly praise Black Ops 2. Its much better then last year when all we had was Skyrim.

lol wut?

"Its much better then last year when all we had was Skyrim." - and thank god for that.

It was a fun bugfest but a bugfest nonetheless.

Uncharted 3, Zelda, LittleBIGPlanet 2, and Batman: Arkham City would all disagree that Skyrim was alone. In fact, it was one of the biggest battles for GOTY this gen has seen.

OT: For all intents and purposes, an 89 on Metacritic probably won't Halo 4's chances at all. I expect it to be a substantial contender.

Game Critics Awards decide game of the year, not Metacritic and they utilized the review from 40 publications recognize by Game Critics. The only one of those to have given Halo 4 a mediocre review was EGM. I've been saying for years Metacritic should only use reviews from publications recognized by Game Critics to offer more transparency.

Triple A game from a triple A developer. This is what happens when you have a passion for your product. It really shows.

I've seen footage of this game and it looks outstanding. Great and engaging campaign, solid graphics, and excellent online. The game screams quality.

I'd really be happy if it was ported to the PC. I think Microsoft has sold enough XBox360s by now with their console exclusive Halo 3, ODST, and Reach. What about the fans that were there from the start?
