Gears of War... Game of the Year?

According to GameRankings.com, GOW is close to being placed in the top 10 highest rated games of all time. After taking the #1 spot on Xbox Live in only a week, and accolades coming from all of the critics, has the gaming community already found its Game of the Year?

If not, what else can compete? The newly released Wii? Or the PlayStation 3...

definitely for action TPS genre, but I would say Zelda should take game of the year. It has more depth to the game.

Gears will probably take is due to the number of copies it will sell.

Lol,
Either way, each to their own. They both deserve credit, as for me, I'm happy with my GOW.

that gears of war deserves game of the year because it is an original IP... zelda is another sequel (a brilliant sequel that deserves high accolades...) If anything I simply think its important for developers to focus on new stories and new ideas rather than put together another sequel, even if the sequels exceed the prior games (resident evil 4, devil may cry 3, and really.. any final fantasy are good examples.)

I think the best example of why we as a gaming community should stand up for original IP's are "dead rising," "gears of war," and "okami.." all games are unique and original in some way and we need to show support for creativity not just say something is GOTY because it has been delayed 3 years and contains some nostalgia and an installed fan base...

What about Elder Scrolls: Oblivion? Original? I think it's groundbreaking. GOW is a good game but not as inventive as Oblivion. And not as big. Oblivion deserves it.

elder scrolls IV dude... another sequel... c'mon...

Oh forget Zelda lol, I think GOW should win for what it brings I mean come on anybody can make another Zelda game with the same gameplay, Graphics, and puzzles that every Zelda has always had. Don't get me wrong Zelda is always a sick game but honeslty GOW I think is a big jump in alot of ways, like obviously graphics, the way the cover is used etc...I don't know Zelda is probably going to win tho just for the fact that's it's Zelda and Nintendo has that new controller, oh well I certainly know GOW is my GOTY
