Late night talk host Jimmy Fallon loves him some Mario Kart 8, but does he have a chance against Reggie?
MK8 is a fantastic game. I think Smash will get GOTY imo.
Agreed. I only play mk8 at drunk parties on a big ass projector in the middle of the night, its awesome! Buuut... ssb has been my favorite game since n64. I cant even imagine how much time I spent in melee. Now there is a portable version!! With shulk!
I guess it needs to be mentioned, but we're only through 8 months of the year.. GotYs should be given out in December/January, not right after August ended.
@EeJLP I doubt Fallons taking it that seriously.
Good game but not game of the year. To me it just felt like a hd upgrade of the wii version. Double dash is my favorite one at least they tried something slightly different.
I think Destiny will will most Goty, but yeah, i can see smash whit 1 or 2...
I'll get Destiny once it comes to either PC or Wii U. Otherwise I'm steering clear of it, because I refuse to pay for online and I'm afraid my poor old PS3 won't have the memory to handle it on top of all my other games.XD
@disagrees jesus, is it that outlandish to think destiny will be GOTY?
@sheed...many people aren't that impressed with it. It's nothing new. Cancelled my preorder once I saw the gameplay videos.
Idk man, it would be hard for a fighting game to get Goty. There is stiff competition this holiday season as well. That would be cool to see a nin game get Goty especially after the rough time the wii u has had. I guess well see.
he said "so far" so might change his opinion when smash comes out
This would be front page news if it were a Sony game. Unfortunately you can't get through all the recycled Sony Playstation garbage to find any decent gaming news.
I need a WiiU, holy crap MK8 looks fun.
That DLC as well *_* Link in Mario Kart!!!!11!!!1!!!one!!! And 16 extra tracks for that low price.
Nintendo is finally selling the WiiU and giving it the attention it deserves. I need to get one.
Mario Kart 8 is a damn good game and a welcome return to the Kart series. I agree, I have tons of fun with this game alone so far.
Mario Kart 8 is great if you want to race, but for people like me who enjoy battle mode more, giving it GOTY or a 10/10 is pretty insulting. They completely mutilated what is considered to be half of the "Mario Kart Experience" and it still gets 10's? It's a good game, but that's just plain wrong. And let's not pretend Jimmy actually plays video games, either. This is his PR team. Have you seen him play these games on the show? It's not a matter of skill. It's a matter of knowledge. He doesn't play games. It's publicity. At least Conan is honest about it.
Agree with everything you said 👍 I really miss the old battle mode.
I'm hoping that one of the new Cups offered has tighter battle oriented tracks. As far as Fallon, you are a little jugemental, No? It was @jimmyfallon, not the Tonight Show.. Really, PR would favour the Gamepad over asking him to promote the Pro. He likes the game :) Say..you're not really the PR team for Conan are you!?
Yeah best game hands down
how much did nintendo pay him?
No, Microsoft payed him to not pick a PlayStation game lol joke
Well, Playstation 4 was on Conan (multiple times) and Fallon. I'm assuming they must have paid them.
What game so far is better? Infamous? lol
It's my game of the year lets see. 1. Good Looking Game. 2. Free Online. 3. Active Community. 4. Fast fun and friendly gameplay. 5. A game that doesn't require patches or a patch to play it. 6. DLC that adds to the game without adding parts that should have been included. For all those complaining about the battle mode at this point you need to get over it.
I think Destiny and FryCry 4 will be GOTY I mean so many people give them out I can see both winning a few of them.
How can you give a GOTY award three and a half months before the year is over? Bed re the vast majority of contenders are launched during the busiest part of the year? Marketing stunt, that's how. They should have at least waited for Smash Bros.
GOTY for me is still DKC: Tropical Freeze :) Good challenge, great level design and an extraordinary soundtrack that sends shivers down my spine.. especially Funky Waters.
Kart or Smash this year, it's a toss up. Bayonetta 2 says hello, however. Next year, Zelda or Witcher 3.
