Tell the VGX Advisory Council who you think should be named 2013's Game of the Year.
Same here, the storytelling is amazing, the graphics are amazing, the MP is amazing... You get the picture
Yeah, its one of the few games this gen that actually EXCEEDS the hype behind it.
Hopefully Logic will win out for the GOTY. (See what I did there?)
@Tom ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooh I see what you did there http://www.youtube.com/watc... :)
Kinda surprised that TR was on here. I mean it's a awesome game don't get me wrong but GoTY?
i just want to say what an amazing year for all gamers i'm having a blast with this huge amount of games this year guys, it doesn't matter who win GOTY TLOU is my GOTG/GOTY but if it didn't win i would care less those awards mean little and should not make TLOU or GTAV any less enjoyable to any gamer
Dang what an amazing year for games. All of those games deserve GOTY. I voted for GTA personally but TLOU and Bioshock come in at a very close second and I suspect Mario will as well.
Me too, TLOU deserves it.
The Last of Us - A beautiful, well crafted, brand new IP with fantastic graphics, great story telling and amazing characters...not to mention terrific voice acting OR GTAV - A game in my opinion which didn't live up to the hype and is a sequel to a game which is the same old stuff we've seen for years. Not saying it wasn't good but I'd rather give it to the new IP. We always go on about how this industry needs new IP's and new franchises....well we got one. Think NaughtyDog need Studio of the Year aswell, can't believe it lost out to Bethesda in 2011.....BETHESDA.... <sigh>
"GTAV - A game in my opinion which didn't live up to the hype and is a sequel to a game which is the same old stuff we've seen for years. " Lmao GTA V not only exceeded the hype but it delivered on what it promised. Although personally I would give TLOU game of the year.
@GamingFeud Not really. It was an improvment over what GTA4 promised but it still felt flat in some areas and felt too hyped up in my opinion.
The only thing GTA V fell short in imo was the MP, everything else far exceeded my hype.
none of us are qualified to vote for this goty since none of us have played Mario 3D World
well im going to go out on limb here and say mario wont beat last of us or gta 5
Ya the story in Mario 3D is so deep, and is perfectly matched with ground breaking gameplay
I'm holding out on my vote because of this, I know that my personal GotY will be the last of us or mario (or guacamelee, but it didn't make the list). @plastic the game does offer ground breaking gameplay, I don't know of any other franchise that is capable a feeling this fresh and new after so many iterations, it really remarkable. and GTA or tLoU doesn't offer hysterical fun and joy, does it? every game has it's strengths
It's pretty much a guarantee that GTA5 is gonna win. Why? Because this show is the equivalent to an MTV Movie award.
BS:I was such a mind fuck, it is my vote.
I don't even know if that game would make my top 10, I really just played through it because everybody was telling me how amazing it is. The story was really bad when you think about it, having twists just for the sake of having twists, and generally just not making sense.
There is almost no chance that GTA won't win this. It probably sold double the amount of all the other games combined. More people played it equals more people will vote for it.
I voted all Naughty Dog
Who would have thought Super Mario 3D World would get a nomination to be the Game of the Year 2013? Can't wait for this friday!
i believe the embargo lifts tomorrow so judging by the leaked IGN review and this i am expecting high praise for this game
I don't think it deserves it to be honest coming out this late in the year. I really think there should be a cut off point for the VGAs Ni No Kuni deserved a spot up there instead....it might not of won but hell it deserved a shot.
Foxtrot - it's called Game of the Year, not "As long as it comes out before November 1st Game of the Year". If the early reviews are any indication it absolutely has earned the right to be up there.
@Neonridr A game which is more or less the same then past Mario games, especial y the 3DS version OR A brand new JRPG game giving us a brand new fresh IP I think I know what I would choose to be there instead
BioShock Infinite for me, definitely my favorite game in the past year
Sorry BioShock and Irrational Games, but The Last of Us gets my vote.
I didn't like Bioshock Infinite.
I liked the story and the setting, but the gameplay was shit.
loved Infinite. Not as good as the first, but still a great installment in the franchise.
*Sigh* wish there was a Troy baker as Joker option for Best voice actor. I feel Mark Hamill left some very big shoes to fill when he departed his most famous role, but Troy Baker nailed it as the menacing Clown princes of crime and deserves recognition for it.
Agreed, the new Joker nailed it! But unfortunately the game was pretty crap so I don't see it winning anything :/
too be fair though half the list for best male voice actor is troy baker
I like Troy Baker but as the Joker he didn't live up to Mark Hamill in my opinion. The laugh was spot on but the dialogue bits you knew it was Troy and not Mark.
@-Foxtrot I disagree Troy baker has mentioned himself that his intentions before the voicing process wasn't to be "Mark Hamils" joker or any one joker in particular. As his joker was meant to be much younger take on one of comic books oldest villians spanning 60 years Troy chose to blend both 1960's Cesar Romeros Joker with present day Mark Hamil and that's what you have in Origins. I for one think he did a great job in trying to find a cross between the two whilst keeping the Jokers character intact.
TLOU nothing comes close.
Look at the Gaming Advisory Council Overlords of Journalism...These are basically the people who will be making the decision for Game of the Year. Andy McNamara (Editor in Chief, Game Informer Magazine) Ben Silverman (Yahoo Games) Brian Crecente (News Editor, Polygon.com) <---- Chris Grant (Editor, Polygon.com) <---- Chris Kohler (Games Editor, Wired.com) Dale North (Editor in Chief, Destructoid) Darren Franich (Staff Writer, Entertainment Weekly) Francesca Reyes (Editor in Chief, Official Xbox Magazine) <---- Geoff Keighley (Host / Executive Producer, SPIKETV) Jeff Gerstmann (Editor in Chief, Giant Bomb) Jeremy Parish (Editorial Director, usgamer.net) Jerry Holkins (Co-Creator, Penny Arcade) Justin Calvert (Executive Editor, Gamespot) Logan Decker (Editor in Chief, PC Gamer) Lou Kesten (AP) Ludwig Kietzmann (Editor in Chief, Joystiq) Mike Krahulik (Co-Creator, Penny Arcade) Mike Snider (Entertainment Reporter, USA Today) Russ Frushtick (Senior Editor, Polygon.com) <---- Sophia Tong (Editor in Chief, GamesRadar) Stephen Totilo (Deputy Editor, Kotaku.com) Tal Blevins (VP Games Content, IGN Entertainment) Tina Amini (Coordinating Editor, Kotaku.com) Three people from Polygon and a person from Official Xbox Magazine...Wow that is fucking BS. Why the hell is an Xbox Magazine having the say in what game gets GOTY, they are obviously not going to pick the TLOU and Polygon is sponsored by MS...They have 3 different people voting in it JUST from Polygon. That is fucking stupid.
Calm down, do you know how many sites do GOTY? 1 doesn't mean anything, especially considering spike's GOTY are a joke.
How are polygon still sponsored by MS after that 7.5 dead rising 3 review? Why don't MS take their money back?
kennedy was shot by ms? 9-11 paid by ms? dude get some air.
Do you really care who wins Goty? If The Last of Us doesn't win will it make the game any less enjoyable? The only reason to even watch the VGAs is the possibility of some game reveals imo.
Forza 5 is up for nominations aswel and the game isn't even out yet F-in bs
Anything but Bioshock Infinite. What a let down that was
i thought Infinite was better then the original BioShock. both really really good games.
THE LAST OF US Naughty Dog had the faith to make a BRAND new IP this late in the gen and it turned out to be a masterpiece. The reason this game is GOTY and not something like GTA V is because people KNEW GTA was going to be good! Very few people expected a 95 Metacritic from TLOU! GO NAUGHTY DOG!
After Uncharted I'm pretty sure people were expecting something good from ND.
"The reason this game is GOTY and not something like GTA V is because people KNEW GTA was going to be good!" I can't find any logic in that. GTA can't be GOTY because people knew it was going to be good? wat But yeah, I appreciate Rockstars 5 years of hard work but Naughty Dog brought a game thats going to be a classic so pretty hard one between these two..
What I mean is that it was expected whereas Last of Us people expected a good game but not a great one. Plus I think it will be better for the industry for a game like TLOU to get the attention because it will benefit from it more than GTA V would.
I know what you ment but I'm sorry it just doesn't make any sense to me :) Expectations don't change the game better or worse in my books. The game is what it is and you should judge on that.. I do agree that TLOU winning would probably benefit the industry more.
I'm with yezz on that one. I think people expected both games to be great. Don't tell me you didn't expect The Last of Us to be great. And it won't affect the industry. It's just an award. The Last of Us is a critically acclaimed game and a comercial success. That's what really matters in terms of its influence on the industry.
For me TLOU , did enjoy the others though. Looking forward to the story dlc
To hell with game of the year, that game should win overall game of the generation.
Anything but TLOU, way over rated
Well I doubt he meant for Barney the dinosaur, lol...
Go kickstart a game.
That's an insult now?
open world ftw ;)
Incredible, even after 30 years of his first appearance, Mario is stil the king of platforming. Anyway, I'm voting for BioShock Infinite for GOTY
Tomb raider? Are you freaking kidding me?? Good, but GOTY material? no
It comes close. it was basically uncharted without drake and was serious. I liked it quite a lot. still Bioshock infinite and the last of us were a step above.
I didn't choose it but I think I definitely deserves a nomination
Voted for TLOU in every category that i could.
Me too. Can't believe it wasn't nominated for best soundtrack.
I think it was.
It was, and definitely deserves to win that. One of the best soundtracks I've heard in a while.
