All you have to do is examine the history of the franchise and the review scores these games typically pull down, and you’ll discover the obvious.
No one has played the game yet so I think it's too early to say, but I also hold a lot of optimism for it. ND hasn't let me down yet. :D
They intend to produce the best product possible so it is definitely possible.
Halo 5 will be my favorite game of the year, but I am sure Uncharted will be GOTY in 2015, really no doubt
Cool story bro
How can anyone know what their favorite game of the year will be?
Wait , I'll guess a game not yet announced being my favorite game of the year , Red Dead 3 xD
Well if Halo 5 turns out to be another Halo 4 then bad stuff will happen
Halo 4 was my favorite, so ya.
It's a possibility ND hasn't let people down yet, but lets not forget there's still couple games coming out next year and games we don't know yet that could give UC a good run for its money. One game in particular is The Witcher 3.
Mass Effect 4 or The Witcher 3 or Batman Arkham Knight.
Love Uncharted, but come on now. ND has a great track record so there's lots of reason for optimism, but "a lock for Game of the Year 2015" is pushing it severely when we're only halfway through 2014 and it will be a long time before anyone gets to play UC4 at all.
It's either this or Arkham Knight for GOTY.
Definitely possible. However The Witcher 3, Halo 5, The Division, Mass Effect 4, Barman AK, MGS V and other games will have something to say about that.
I want to play barman ak, sounds awesome
Lets not go nuts with the pressure guys. I mean ND keep raising the bar and raising the bar, but eventually you have to hit a ceiling. Thats just a given. Let just let them get the best game out that they can without all this, future GotY, future GotG crap. I know it will be great, and we'll all love it, if we just keep our expectations realistic.
Game of the Year with only a tech demo, okay...
That was not a tech demo
nope Zelda Wii U will
My most hyped Zelda game in a lot of time. This new game will take risks that previous entries haven't taken. And the art style is gorgeous. Can't wait to see more.
Uncharted 4 may look nice in a tech demo but maybe it would be time to choose something great, complex and game worth of >1000h. https://www.paradoxplaza.co... UC4 could be GOTY for PS4 of course.
Haha good to see a fellow HOI player on here. I doubt many on N4G would agree.
Half way through 2014 and we're already starting with this.
Quantum Break and Halo 5 will be better games. Look I know N4G users think Naughty Dog are the best developers of all time but they simply are not. Top 10 yes, number 1.. no. There are a lot of strong developers. Heck CD Projekt Red might win with Witcher 3. Rocksteady could take it with Arkham Knight.
LOL. Just LOL. Plenty of bitterness in mentioning Xbox exclusives that 1) haven't won GOTY awards ever and 2) haven't won GOTY awards since Bungie were at the helm nearly 8 years ago. Meanwhile, Uncharted 2 was the most awarded video game ever until The Last of Us. And the same people who were working on both of those games in a huge capacity (Druckmann and Straley) are now helming UC4. They've earned their place in the pantheon of legendary developers whilst Remedy (even though Max Payne WAS awesome) and 343i haven't yet.
LOL, this is clickbait.... But no, its not a lock. Zelda is going open world...that could be game of the year. Xenoblade Chronicles X, Star Fox, Halo 5, BloodBorne....a lot of good games coming in 2015. Uncharted is not a lock to win anything.
Exactly. The huge among of AAA games releasing next year is insane to make such a claim this early. Previous uncharted games didn't have this much competition but 2015 is loaded. Zelda, batman, halo 5, Mgs5, the order 1886, quantum break, mortal kombat, and many more. Next year gamers are going to go broke. And that's great news for the gaming industry by having so much to choose from. Hardware and software sales should see huge increases in 2015 and beyond.
Im just hoping Rockstar would announce Red Dead 3 in Nov and actually bring it out next year , that would be awesome especially that Rockstar San Diego are in the works so yah , I can dream I guess...
It's gonna come down to Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3, and Arkham Knight I think. There's a lot of competition next year. But Naughty God is in another whole class then most studios. I wouldn't be surprised if they win.
I am confident The Witcher 3 will be the GOTY.
if the division comes out next year then I don't think this will be "locked" for GOTY
I don't know how you can predict a game of year when that said year hasn't happened yet. 2015 is absolutely stacked with games. I don't see any game being a lock for anything.
I think the game that will win goty will be something new that tries different things or takes risks on something thats never been done before. Not to say a game with a 4 at the end of it wont make goty uc3 just felt like more of the same and tbhimo the story in uc2 was better and more memorable. I honestly think there is only so much you can do without changing the core ga.e drastically. But really at the end of the day it comes down to who got more 10s and goty accomidations. And if they did it I wouldnt be suprised. But they got a stiff competition. Heck some revived rpgs from ps1 ps2 days could come out late 15 and blow your freaking socks completely off synging your freakin toe hairs. Im hopeful its something new and refreshing.
I am thinking Quantum Break if done correctly, could be that new and refreshing thing. Or UC4, or Maybe Arkham Knight, or.... who really knows? All I know is that calling it now is retarded. Plain and simple, and shows the confidence some people have in the 2014 line-up if they are trying to jump ahead to next year already. I think focusing on GOTY is stupid anyway, I have played GOTYs that I didn't much like at all, so there's that. And I have played games that everyone said sucked, and I enjoyed them... so no matter how we slice it, it's pretty dumb to care about what "Everybody" likes, and even dumber to be predicting such a far away event lol. It's better to focus on the games WE individually like.... Whatever they may be.
Only a Sith deals in absolutes. Ive always wanted a reason to say that. I do agree though. I'm sure the Witcher 3 and Halo and a bunch of other games will give it a run for its money, but of everything thats been announced, I don't see any other game winning that spot. Of course, lets not forget about all the 1st party studios with as yet unannounced projects.
Well, Uncharted 3 was a huge letdown (that excruciatingly long sequence trudging through the desert was hackish and boring as hell), so I'd hold off on crowning 4 the GOTY just yet. There's a TON of competition in 2015, thanks to the wholesale delays so far this gen, so I really don't think there will be a clear GOTY winner, overall.
"All you have to do is examine the history of the franchise and the review scores these games typically pull down, and you’ll discover the obvious. " *goes to metacritic, looks at home console Zelda scores vs Uncharted scores* Oh.. umm
Maybe MGSPP or especially a Bethesda game,the undisputed game of the year king of last gen would take it but nothing's been confirmed for 2015
Witcher 3 should steal this one away, if it does not then it is a crime against gaming.
I am expecting this one to slip into end of 2016.
There is a lot of good games set to release in 2015.so it's to far out at this point to say uncharted will take goty hell what about mg and halo,the division and mint more good games.it's wishful thinking on the part of the author that's all..no one knows what's going to happen a year from now!
Witcher 3 easily wins GOTY
I think HIdeo Kojima and Metal Gear Solid V have something to say about this...there is no way in hell that a watered down version of Uncharted is going to topple the Metal Gear franchise....no way in hell
Halo 5 will offer no competition for GOTY. Only Metal Gear Solid 5 and Arkham Knight can do that
It's a little to early to say this.Naughty Dog have really only released two great games.Uncharted 2 and TLOU were fab but Uncharted was decent and 3 was just a mess.
