Horizon is going to have some big shoes to fill. I'm not worried though, all of this love should make GG excited about their new IP. I can't wait to play it.

Yeah Horizon:ZD is looking like its going to be very, very good. And I can't wait for Fallout 4…This generation looks like RPG's will take the forefront between Bloodborne, Witcher, Dragon Age, Crackdown, Horizon, Fallout 4…Can't wait to hear about more

JMaine5181175d ago

Absolutely. I've never been much of an RPG fan but this gen has changed that for me and has even gotten me to go back and play other known greats. I love it.

dirkdady1175d ago

So per ign versus gamers pick Sony and with the game critics awards, the industry reviewers pick Sony. Seems like things are in harmony.

Damn. I swear on the run up to E3 xbone fanboys where talking about how Halo 5 would wipe the floor with everything. Now it turns out Uncharted 4 won best console game.

Uncharted > Halo.

Always.

Xavior_Reigns1176d ago

Surprised Need for Speed took best racing game. I would've thought Forza 6 took it, oh well.

Letthewookiewin1175d ago

Need for Speed looks amazing though and I'm not even into racers.

Xavior_Reigns1175d ago

I just have my doubts because well it's EA and if I'm not mistaken, online only. Might turn out to be solid but some EA features might spoil it.

Rookie_Monster1175d ago (Edited 1175d ago )

I take these awards with a giant grain of salt.

Just last year, they gave the win to the Crew over Forza Horizon 2 and DC. LOL

Also, Evolve won the best console game and best of show awards last year too but does anyone real think that was the best game of the show after it is all said and done in the final product vs other games?

It is like predicting the Oscar based on trailers and watching 10 minutes of the preview. LOL

TheNew11175d ago

Yeah I completely agree.

Aloy-Boyfriend1175d ago (Edited 1175d ago )

@thenew

You agree with him yet below you are claiming bias toward Sony for the lack of MS games. Lol

Aloy-Boyfriend1175d ago (Edited 1175d ago )

The only thing that matters is what they showed which is what the awards are based on. And what they showed damn good games. Will the games hold up when it finally releases? Nobody knows but that shouldn't hold any bearing on who gets the awards.

Genuine-User1175d ago

Would you have taken it with a grain of salt if your favourite games had the mind-share?

Rookie_Monster1175d ago

@genuine user,

Is that a trick question? Of course. ;)

iceman061175d ago

The year before that was TitanFall...and before that was The Last of Us...and before that was Bioshock Infinite. Seems like they do a decent job of guessing quality.
That being said, these awards are simply an acknowledgement of what the industry insiders are most excited about after playing at E3.

Need For Speed has a much longer pedigree and is a bit more accessible than Forza for your average player. It's rare that a sim will beat out a game with more mass appeal. Plus, Need For Speed kind of had that Underground look to it and many racing fans LOVED that series of Need For Speed games.

Rimeskeem1176d ago

Uncharted 4 is gonna be epic!

CamBulls121176d ago

Fallout 4 GOTY 2015, Uncharted 4 GOTY 2016. My prediction!

MasterCornholio1175d ago (Edited 1175d ago )

Sounds like a good prediction to me.

:)

I'm happy that I'll get to play both of them.

Jaqen_Hghar1175d ago

For a man it will probably be uncharted 4, ratchet and clank or horizon

MasterCornholio1175d ago

Good choices in my opinion. I'm surprised that PlayStation has so many though.
