goty 2014 IMO

No. I'm a big fan of the series but this entry lacked direction. The mechanics were amazing but the story and motivation wasn't as good as the previous entries.

Which still didn't prevent it from being one of the best releases of the year so far.

I agree but I wouldn't call it amazing also because it wasn't as challenging and as dreadful as its predecessor.

unfortunately a good but forgetful game, not the experience I was eagerly looking forward to.

@segamon If you play in the covenant of champions from the start it is just as hard, besides Demon/dark souls has always been as hard as you want it to be,

@lonelyplayer I agree its not as gd and does lack direction but that didn't stop it from being goty so far, I can't think of another game I enjoyed as much and can't see any forthcoming release topping it, but hey, i'll be open minded :)

I would give that title for 'Divinity: Original Sin' so far.

Many very promising looking games still coming like 'Elite: Dangerous' so it's a bit too early to choose GOTY ;)

Dark Souls -series is not bad in any means but personally I think that Hack 'n' Slash gets boring very fast.

I don't think you know what Hack 'n' slash is...
Potnoodle999  +   248d ago
nope
If you think its just a hack 'n' slash your playing it wrong, Its one of the most in depth, immersive and rewarding game series I've ever played.
and that's before i even get started on how much of a great rpg it is :)
But the goty argument is still your opinion that I respect. I just can't stand it when people degrade it to hack 'n' slash status, and that's coming from someone who is a huge god of war fan among many other awesome hack 'n' slashers.

ohhh man I totally forgot the DLC was coming out this week. So excited

Oh my gosh, did the game really have that many bugs? Don't these guys test the game before they release it. I can see this generation games are going to be as buggy as the last.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   250d ago
...? Not bugs, balancing.

And what a wonderful patch it was. No more Havelmonsters! Also more soul memory tiers! Buuuuut.... For some reason the monastery scimitar's super parries are back :(
