wtf where is AC3 and far cry 3
and remove this sh*t ( FTL and HALO 4) from the list
rezzah  +   869d ago
AC3 was good but not GOTY good.
fermcr  +   869d ago
OK list. It wouldn't exactly bee my choices for best games of the year, but it's their opinion, not mine.

I would take out of the list: Guild Wars 2, The Unfinished Swan, Hotline Miami, FTL, Journey, Mass Effect 3. Good games but not GOTY.

Include these games to the list: XCOM, Max Payne 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Torchlight 2, Sleeping Dogs.

GW2 is pretty much better than the games you listed, I would keep far cry 3 MAYBE torchlight but the other ones aren't GOTY material like GW2. I do agree with the other picks you want to kick out.

I don't think I've ever seen so many contenders for overall GOTY on any website haha. I find it hard to vote for anything as I haven't played many. Borderlands 2 was good, but not what I was expecting. I don't feel that urge to get my character to level 50, or play with the other characters any more. With the first game, I was all over that, but not in 2, idk why. Halo 4 had a good story, but I was disappointed with the multiplayer.

Mark of the Ninja should be considered for a nominee. Iam not a fan of stealth games but I love this, its my GOTY.

My personal contenders are

Planetside 2:

Reason? This game is just off the scale with hundreds of players involved in battles, a rewarding massive unlock system, battles that mean something besides k/d boosting/ score whoring. And to top if off its free to play.

Far Cry 3:

I dont even need to say it? best open world game in such a long time, graphically amazing, best characters ive experienced in a video game, sorry uncharted but your bad guys are a shadow to Vaas.

I agree.Best FPS i've played in 2012. Do you like large open maps? Ok, how about an entire planet?? So much better than Battlefield games, and its FREE. Totally worth at least trying it out.

for me GOTY is Zombi U ... so intense, so fresh!
felidae  +   869d ago
lol at the disagree for my personal game of the year.
Hasanhastam  +   869d ago
Far cry 3 without doubt
VonBraunschweigg  +   869d ago
I wasn't expecting it to be in the top 10, but good to see that my personal goty Starhawk is included in the video. The game is so much fun online.
Norrison  +   869d ago
It isn't, read the article.
VonBraunschweigg  +   868d ago
I know it isn't, but at least it's in the video, which is better than no mention at all.
Belking  +   869d ago
Halo 4 and Farcry 3.
Der_Kommandant  +   869d ago
Spec Ops The Line should win best story
omi25p  +   869d ago
Far Cry 3 had a better story, Spec Ops lost it a little half way through
Norrison  +   869d ago
I liked BL2's story more than far cry 3's story.
