Why Far Cry 3 Should Be Game of the Year

Kotaku - Far Cry 3 should not be my nomination for 2012 game of the year. I'm not a huge fan of first-person shooters. While I appreciate the technical accomplishment of the first two games in the series I've not felt compelled to complete either. I felt absolutely no excitement leading up to the third installment's late November release. I expected a visually pleasing shooter that would keep me occupied for an hour or so before I moved on to more compelling things. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Platinum'ed it.

To be it was by far the best FPS of 2012, but not the GOTY.

IMO one of the best story's I have played for a long time.

I disagree;
Trapped in island with full of pirates and rescuing friends.
It just didn't do it for me.

I got teh platinum aswel, its an easy 20hour platinum, almost as easy as the Hitman platinum

I enjoyed FC3, it was a big improvement over FC2, not my goty personally, I think that goes to Dishonored

Glad to hear someone else mention Dishonored for GOTY. Far Cry 3 was good yeh but gameplay-wise it didn't do anything that hasn't already been done 100 times already.

The final main missions being perfect examples...

Got it on Xbox. Sold it today to buy one on PC :)

Journey all day.

But Far Cry 3 was a lot of fun though. It was like a Rambo simulator.

Next they should do Far Cry 4 with dinosaurs.

I just hope the Co-Op is better in the next game and a lot less buggy.

YES. jeeeeezus i've never seen such bad net code

Just difficult to have such an open game of that level run smooth in co-op across all platforms. Hopefully next gen systems will be up to the task.

I agree with the writer, I actually found myself caring about Jason Brody's friends, hell I even cared in the beginning when Grant died, and when I found out about Riley, I don't know but few games these days really make you care about the characters. Now as an open world it is awesome, trying to hunt a black panther or setting a tiger at an outpost loose in order to make your job of liberating it easier. It's an awesome game, almost at the platinum, and it is my GOTY.

Really felt the connect Jason and Riley had. Specially the interrogation scene. It just felt so real and actually made me think what I would do if my brother and I were in the same situation.
Nes_Daze  +   1059d ago
I felt the same way having a younger brother and all, really touching stuff throughout the storyline.

Far Cry 3 was one of, if not, the best game I have played in my life and VASS is the most interesting character ive seen in gaming history
urwifeminder  +   1059d ago
I like 2 more just for location rather then the same jungle art style from crysis and far cry1 .
