Beyond: Two Souls is The Last of Us Greatest Rival for GOTY

The Last of Us is an up-coming PS3 exclusive game taking place on a post-apocalyptic world. The game is set to launch next month, and it is receiving great previews as of now. Many believe The Last of Us to be the game of the year for 2013, but there is another PS3 exclusive game called Beyond: Two Souls which is also looking just as good if not better.

Pure win for PS3 owners

it would be pretty big if one of these is GOTY 2013 because they are new IPs

EDIT: has any 360 game won GOTY trophy before?

LoveOfTheGame1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

I don't know how people finally decide what is GOTY. Most years it is way to close to call a GOTY with few exceptions here and their where it is generally believed for a game to have won it.

It would be awesome for one of these, I think Last of Us will, to win GOTY as it could inspire other companies to take chances on new IPs.

For the 360 comment I refer back to my first statement. Some people believe Gears 1, Mass Effect 1(we will count it as 360 game for now) should have been GOTY. Few times, especially since the years have gone on and games have become much closer in quality, has there been a clear GOTY winner. Just look how many games have a GOTY addition.

Edit: Just looked up a list of GOTY recipients, the years of this gen is all over the place. Not one list comes close to matching another 2006-2012.

I think a Halo game won one once, but other than that, not really.

You do realize there is no award ceremony. It's all opinion.

Unless you are talking about the Golden Joy stick. Which is a joke in it's self.

One year they literally painted the winners on top the body's of women in bikinis. If they are the "official" Judges then im not interested.

Thatguy-3101768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

Both of these games will offer a compelling narrative and that is what it will make it Stan out from the rest. Can't freaking wait to get my hands on both of them. That being said though this year has been great for gamers and honestly I don't care who wins GOTY this time around as I'm getting my hands on all these great games.

RyuCloudStrife1768d ago

yes the acting on these two games really sets the bar way up there.

Imalwaysright1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

Imo RDR narrative was much more compelling than Uncharted and Heavy Rain and I cared more about Marston than any Uncharted or Heavy Rain characters. It wouldn't be wise to understimate Rockstar as narrative goes.

Is it possible to have 2 GOTY games?

Inb4 GTAV will be GOTY...

Double_Oh_Snap1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

Was literally just about to say the same thing lol. Oh and I also think GTA V has a very high chance of GOTY status imo.

duli141768d ago

Well yes it is possible because different gaming websites have different GOTYs

wishingW3L1768d ago

is he forgetting about Bioshock Infinte and GTAV?

SolidDuck1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

I don't think bioshock infinite makes the cut. I loved it, but I still think the first bioshock was better. I know I'm going to love beyond but I'm not sure it will be up there either. I really think it will be between the last of us and gta 5. Hey It could even be something next gen, although launch games usually are not goty material. Oh and don't forget about dark souls 2. I know it will be in my personal running for goty, as long as they don't screw it up.

2 exclusives battling for GOTY award, that never happened

Jek_Porkins1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

I feel like it might be a little too early for the Game Of The Year talk, we haven't played these games yet, although they'll probably be great!

I think competition will be tough all the way around with huge new next gen titles coming out, Destiny, Watch Dogs and a ton of other games not even announced yet. There is also Bioshock Infinite which has scored very well with sales and Metacritic, and GTAV is releasing as well.

Kind of fun to speculate though!

Minato-Namikaze1768d ago

Doesnt matter its Naughty Dog, lol.

Roccetarius1768d ago

So it's a popularity contest then?

TongkatAli1768d ago

Maybe its a quality and epicness contest ?
