Top Contenders for GOTY 2013 Award, Including GTA V

2013 has started on a pretty slow note for gaming industry, apart from revealed of new brand IP from CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 nothing astonishing has happened so far. However with each passing day things will change dramatically, and 2013 will be a moster year for video game industry as the release of some most anticipated games (GTA V, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite and more) are just around the corner. (Beyond: Two Souls, BioShock: Infinite, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360)

Why not make a list for GOTY 2014 Contenders ?

Why not make a list for GOTY 2015 Contenders ?

Honestly it's quite stupid to make a GOTY 2013 contenders with so many games to be announced and released.

Yeah, basically it's just Hype contenders of the year 2013.
WeskerChildReborned  +   927d ago
We have no idea what games are coming out in 2014 or 2015, we've already got a announced list for games in 2013 and their are already a few you can say look "GOTY worthy" and that would be Last of Us and GTA V, don't know if Watch Dogs or MGS GZ are coming out in 2013 though.

Regardless of whether or not we know their release date, it's pointless to nominate 'Contendors' for 2013 GOTY when absolutely none of these games has even been released yet.
dboyc310  +   927d ago
I agree though the top 3 on the list are for sure nominees. Doubt anything bigger will come out towards the end of the yr. I honestly don't see anyone announcing something amazing that no one has heard of and release it in Q3 or Q4. Things need time to build hype.

Please, we all know it will be Call of Duty: The Next Version.

Sigh.

If somehow all that is good in the world prevails and CoD isn't GOTY, i'd expect GTAV to win.
calis  +   927d ago
I would not be surprised if GTAV hasn't already won it in the minds of many.
Persistantthug  +   927d ago
Well.....to be fair and honest, in spite of your sentiment that I've heard before,
A Call Of Duty game hasn't won an AIAS Game Of The Year since CALL OF DUTY 4 (2007).

It does tend to win the "ACTION" catagory quite a bit though.....but almost never overall GOTY.
Hicken  +   927d ago
As Persistantthug above notes, it's been quite some time since Call of Duty has won GOTY.

Does that mean all that's good in the world has already prevailed?
dboyc310  +   927d ago
COD hardly wins any GOTY awards. I have no idea why you even bring it up. I swear people just like hating on the poor thing.
showtimefolks  +   927d ago
We don't even know what fall 2013 holds so lets wat and see

But I do believe 2013 GOTy will come from one of the earlier games

GTA5
Bioshock
last of us

Tomb raider could be on the list but now have heard mixed things, one thing though tomb raider went gold in November so from November till it comes out its more time for bugs/glitches fixing and more time for polish so hopefully it will be a quality games)

What if uncharted 4 launches with ps4 or alan wake 2 with next Xbox so there are a lot of unknowns for us to even say this game will be GOTY

Pokemon X and Y , Pikmin 3 will be contenders.
NoTheMama  +   927d ago
who would disagree with those fine choices?!
oh yeah, its N4G.....
Kingofwiiu  +   927d ago
The number of 10 year old Xbots and Sony drones on this site is frightening.
Tontus  +   927d ago
I don't care for anyone else's opinion, God of War: Ascension will be MY GOTY 2013 and that's all that matters.
urwifeminder  +   927d ago
Arma 3 will be my fave.
TheSaint  +   927d ago
There are so many different GoTY's these days it's become meaningless.
NoTheMama  +   927d ago
lol im gonna be different and actually play the games first
AKS  +   927d ago
How useful would this type of thing have been for 2012? Did many pick Journey and The Walking Dead to win a bunch of these awards?
Ezz2013  +   927d ago
out of the last of us/gtav/bioshock/god of war/beyond/ni no kuni
i can't choose one
all of them are a must buy and will get goty awards
