GameSpot: The best game on the latest next-gen console.
how can Xbox One or ps4 have a game of the 'year'??? the consoles have been out a month, or am I missing something?
It makes me think twice about Gamespot. Probably only gamesite spewing this garbage...GoY after one month, come on now!
PS4/XB1 GOTY makes sense. It's of 2013, the calender year. Games that come out in November are still up for GOTY, I get that you dont have a full year's worth of games, but they just mean next gen game of 2013. It's most likely because they don't want to completely ignore next gen in their awards. And if they had these launch games in the 2014 GOTY awards you would be back out here moaning "that game technically wasnt out this year!" Jesus Christ it's just an award, and it make you think twice about Gamespot. Some people are so negative, there's nothing to complain about.
because Gamespot need hits and this is as good an excuse as any?
A bit premature dont you think? Xbox One and PS4 have no game of the year contenders. Ask the same ? same time next yr.
Personally, my favourite next gen title thus far is a pretty simple choice, Battlefield 4. Admittedly I'm an FPS guy, but issues aside, it's the game that's eaten up most of my time.
Same here. Loving the game a lot. The issues need to be sorted out though. The tension you have everytime you're having a great game and praying that it won't crash on you....its just not acceptable.
That would suck. Makes me glad I'm still terrible at the game :)
This must be GOTY for the hardcore gamer..
it hasn't even been a month and yet game sites are declaring the game of the 'year' for the next gen consoles. smh.
More like Game Of The Launch winner. But whatever the case, Assassin's Creed IV is awesome. I have it for PS4 and it would have been my pick. I only have Dead Rising 3 and Peggle 2 on Xbox One.
Yeah it seems to be AC4 and DR3 are the best non shooter games. My favorite game is NBA2K14. Even aftet drm having hard time getting rid of it. Its soo good!!
BF4 is worth getting. Never held a PS4 controller but the ONE controller compliments it really well
AC IV all the way. My only real complaint would be that there is nothing between walking and running. It makes looting crates on a sinking ship a nightmare!
I don't understand what I'm seeing here. This is goty for next gen? If so, then how'd they pick the X1 version over the 2 others? What was the thought process behind running with AC4 over the X1's exclusives, the PS4's exclusives, or the only next gen title with a meta in the 90s, SMB 3D World?
It's just for XB1. Gamespot picked a goty for each console. To all that ask how can PS4&XB1 have a goty? Are you saying that because the new systems haven't been out for a year they can't have a goty? I don't think they mean a liiteral year. Games that come out in 2013 are from the year 2013 is all they are saying.
Unless they are SURE no other games are coming out in December then they cant offer game of the year. But they are NOT sure, because two more are scheduled to come out this year for xbox one. This is why games of the year come out after the year is up. Not saying because the system is not out for a year. How is it fair to companies that release there games after this award, but before next year(2014). They cant be eligible for GOTY for 2014 because they came out in 2013, and are being ignored for 2013. Because the award is already out.
For me my game of the year has to be Pikmin 3 or Mario 3D world ive enjoyed theses two games more than any other so far this year. But tbh its each to there own to what is there game of the year. Going of sales GTA5 has to be up there even though I have never liked the GTA games I would say most people would put this as there game of the year. As for the best game on the xbox one I have only played Forza 5 KI and Fifa 14 so I would say for me Forza has been the best of the 3.
Lol funniest shyt ever they give it to a multiplat. Why they even bothered is beyond me they just make it look like they grabbing for hits.
Um I call BS on people saying ps4/ xbox one can't win game of the year. My favorite game this whole entire year is Killzone shadow fall. Same with people who think dead rising 3 is their favorite. So all this talk about ps4 / xbox one games can't get game of the year....hush.
@OhReginald I agree and you make good sense.
really gamespot really
I like ACIV but they should stop giving these awards to multiplats.
