After the first 6 months of the year, what are the real GOTY contenders?
1. The Last of Us 2. GTA V 3. Bioshock: Infinite
GTAV will have to do alot to beat this gem "the last of us" i hope it don't win GOTY or get great reviews just because it have "GTA" on it it have to be great game that deserve the scores and awards
Like how TLOU got great reviews because it has 'naughty dog' on it. Yeah, wouldn't like that.
I think Metro Last Light should be on that list, higher than Tomb Raider but lower than the other three
Based on reviews, TLOU already defeated Bioshock Infinite. Let's see if GTA V can surpass both games.
GTA IV still the highest rated game in metacritic (99%) I'm sure they will won GOTY again this year
Now seriously, does anyone here think that GTA 4 is a 99/100 game? It was great but it was a 9 at the very most for me.
I agree zod. It was a fun game, but GTA IV did have its flaws – like the fact that it controlled like complete ass. Oh, and... "Hey cousin! Would you like to go bowling?" hehe
shooter, shooter, and shooter. This is the problem with games these days.
None of those are purely shooters though.
bioshock would have been almost a perfect game if not for the same old shooter sections. I thought the game was so innovative at first, then i started shooting boring enemies for hours, and it went downhill from there. i wish games could innovate in storytelling with innovative gameplay mechanics on top of it. games break up the flow with forced sections of shooting countless enemies.
you're wrong if you think Bioshock is 'another FPS' same thing apply to The Last of Us and GTA V
FPS games aren't they problem. They are popular because it's easy to jump into a game and see some action for 10-30 min and have fun. The problem is when people in a position of power to make the choice to try something new....when those people decide not to and they decide to just do what everyone else is doing.... ^ That is the problem. You then get watered down versions of everything. It's not just in gaming though, it's in the real world. Watch when something gets popular or a little buzz suddenly everybody "has to do it". Those choices are made by out of touch rich arrogant idiots without a creative bone in their body. People at the top aren't creative, they live off of our creativeness and when we create something new and awesome, they are the leeches that swarm in to cash in on it.
@goldwynq, which makes them all the more half-assed.
I totally agree with the list, but GTA isn't released yet
Judging by the first half of the year, TLOU seems to take the crown. But I'm expecting a lot from GTA5, too. As of now, I think it will be between those 2 games in the end.
Ground zeroes Last of us GTAV Lords of shadows 2
Apparently the word semester is a mystery to some people...
what's up with the 'disagree'? every person got their own GOTY list. Even I think MGS V will not release this year
The Last of Us BioShock Infinite Beyond: Two Souls Tomb Raider Metro: Last Light
Shouldn't that be first "Quarter" instead of "Semester? "Semester" just sounds strange to me-- hmmm.
It's freaking June; I think that's longer than a quarter.
Agree-- bubble up for you!
The Last of Us GTA Bioshock Infinite MGS Ground Zeroes Watch Dogs Beyond Two Souls ( I Hope ) Let's see at the end of this year
(Playing Last of Us now, holding my judgement until I finished it) This is my personal Goty contenders: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Metro: Last Light Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Super Mario 3D World. Wonderful 101.
The Last of Us The Last of Us The Last of Us The Last of Us It's a tough choice.
guacamelee definitely has a place on that list.
The Last Of Us may end up being the best story, but I don't know how anyone could criticize the actual shooter aspect of Bioshock Infinite and then not criticize the terrible shooter mechanics in The Last Of Us. Literally my ONLY complaint so far with TLOU is that it's pretty clunky shooting a gun. I think if it didn't have the benefit of the doubt because of the names on the box more people would complain. Now before the Defense Force comes at me guns blazing (pun intended), I'm not saying it's the end of the world, but I don't enjoy having to shoot a gun in this game and I enjoyed it much more in Bioshock Infinite. Those are my two GOTY so far, though I have them as 1A/1B for right now.
no defence force here lol the thing is ND made the shooting tough in TLOU because Joel is not Skilled at shooting ...he's just trying to survive .....i liked it that way ...any way you can upgrade the aim ....did you upgrade your aiming ?!
I get that, but I hate being penalized for MY AIM. And I have not done that yet so maybe it will get better. Thanks for the tip.
Oh my god I just finished the Last of Us. The final mission is so intense it's epic! WOW!!!!
