2013: 5 Potential Game Of The Year Contenders

"2013 is looking like it could be the last year for the current generation of consoles (for PS3 and Xbox 360 at least). Next-gen consoles look like they’ll release later this year or early next year, snaring attention away from current-gen consoles." | Explosion.com (3DS, Beyond: Two Souls, BioShock: Infinite, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Total War: Rome II, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

You forget Metal Gear Solid V/Ground Zeroes dude! if that new MGS coming this year, I'm sure it will be a GOTY contender and facing GTA all over again.
Ezz2013  +   604d ago
i didn't disagree with you
but MGSGZ is not confirmed for this year
extermin8or  +   604d ago
Watch Dogs is and I think as a new IP it's up there above GTA5 maybe even worthy of 2nd place...
raytraceme  +   604d ago
Last Of Us
Beyond 2 Souls
GTA V
Pokemon X Y
Bioshock Infinite

Are my top 5 no order :D

Tearaway tbqh looks to be a sleeper hit.

Missed the "in no order" part, sorry =(

Pokemon over Bioshock Infinite?

I love Pokemon as much as the next guy and will always have a little flame for it since i grew up with it, but i find it pretty difficult as now "mature" gamer that it will be a better game that Bioshock Infinite.

Looks amazing to the extent i ordered the Songbird edition. Ken Levine is nothing short of genius and imo the wests answer to the mind of Hideo Kojima.

You never know something might be revealed at E3 for a late fall release that could be really great
doogiebear  +   604d ago
Let's not forget Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes. And Shin Megami Tesnei IV for 3ds.
Ezz2013  +   604d ago
did they confirm Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes coming out this year ??!!
FarCryLover182  +   604d ago
No, not confirmed yet.
BanBrother  +   604d ago
My list (obviously going off my preconceptions).

1. Beyond 2S
2. Ni No Kuni
3. Bioshock Infinite
4. The Last Of Us
5. Metro Last Light

All of the games I listed focus almost entirely on the single-player. Although I love playing online multiplayer, nothing beats a well crafted, amazing and unforgettable single player experience. The 5 games I listed have every chance of being some of the best games this gen IMO.

EDIT: Spelling. Also, there are many other awesome games coming out this year that I will be buying, but these are the ones that really stand out for me. Love to see more people's opinions, so share them :-)

Well said for listing Pikmin 3. Whilst Nintendo haters won't put it on their list , its definitely a contender for Game of the year. So is Pokemon X and Y for 3DS.....
contradictory  +   604d ago
if only persona 5 would be announced for release this year...
Kanzes  +   604d ago
• Metal Gear Solid V/Ground Zeroes (if this game coming this year of course)
• Grand Theft Auto V
• The Last of Us
• BioShock Infinite
• Watch Dogs or Beyond: Two Souls

I guess this year Game of the Year will be "V". It's either GTA or MGS.

From where? They already had two perfectly big black balls.
MxRBrobaFett  +   604d ago
GTA V
RustedMan  +   604d ago
another list...
JBSleek  +   604d ago
My List

1.) StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

2.) Star Wars 1313

3.) Watch Dogs

4.) Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots

5.) Command & Conquer: Generals 2
Kennytaur  +   604d ago
Generals 2 doesn't exist anymore, I'm afraid. It was turned into a more casual online micro transaction affair.
gillri  +   604d ago
lol lame PC gamer with ya lame RTS's LOL
JBSleek  +   604d ago
Because I choose games that use strategy I'm lame but if I said over hyper shooters or short action adventure titles I wouldn't be lame? Makes sense.
Norrison  +   604d ago
Lame troll with a lame brain. It's not his fault if you have no sense of strategy because you lack intelligence.
Donnieboi  +   596d ago
Terrible list. Future bargain bin potential.
Squall5005  +   604d ago
Modern Warfare 4

Of course every PS3 fanboy is gonna say TLOU. I say it's gonna be GTAV! I also want Watchdogs!
Squall5005  +   604d ago
Either way, PS3 owners will be happy. They get 'The Last of Us', 'GTA V' and 'Watchdogs'.
Hicken  +   604d ago
And even people who AREN'T PS3 fanboys will say it, as it looks to be an excellent game by an excellent developer. There's nothing wrong with the other two games you mention, but exactly what's wrong with adding The Last of Us to that list?
MysticStrummer  +   604d ago
A good chunk of the entire gaming industry would say TLoU. It's an honest contender, given what we've seen. Only a fanboy would say otherwise. GTA5 is also an honest contender. We haven't seen enough of Watchdogs to know anything other than that it has great potential, and it may not even be out this year.

lovin this gaming year already
TheOneEyedHound  +   604d ago
1) Bioshock Infinite
2) GTAV
3) The Last of us
4) Watch Dogs
5) Ni No Kuni

A close 5th place Beyond 2 Souls
A Goty award Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros if announce for this year IMO.

TheMrMalro  +   604d ago
Personally I don't think Rome II: Total War and Bioshock Infinite should be in the list. Also we have a lot more games to come especially with new consoles on the way.

Beyond Two Souls
