My GOTY for 2012 was Far Cry 3. I loved it. For 2013, so far it's TLOU (GTA V may, may, change that). Best multiplayer was Borderlands 2 for me. Best storytelling? Hmmm..that's a toughie. I like Infinite's story a lot too. Best newcomer is TLOU for me.

I think TLOU deserves GOTY in my opinion. It's my favourite game ever. I know GTA 5 will probably be amazing too, but I've never really been a huge fan of that series.

FC3 has without a doubt the worst multiplayer this year.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   230d ago
I won't disagree with you there. But I absolutely loved the SP.
ZBlacktt  +   230d ago
Yes, FC3 was awesome! I was surprised that you could plat the game without doing all the tasks though. But man was that single player game fun!

super smash bros is 2014. If we are adding 2014, then you may as well ad X or something.

Doesn't it seem a tat premature to start with these nominees this early in?

Whats to say that GTA5 doesn't suck (of course it wont, I cannot wait!) or that one of the next gen titles doesn't blow everything else away?

In the game of the year category they have listed:

Call of Duty: Black Ops II (really!!!!)
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Saints Row IV
Splinter Cell Blacklist
Halo 4
Forza Horizon

Now in my humble opinion some of these games are simply good games but nowhere near game of the year quality and I am very hopeful that the next crop of games in the run up to Christmas will be good enough to topple those listed above.
