When it comes time to choose the very best role-playing game of the year, which do you think will stand tall in the end? And should stability play a role?
I don't really care who wins GOTY. I have learned respect the opinion of others, but that mine is far superior. I will play them both and decide which is better, and I will be right.
I think it comes down the the type of universe you prefer. I have always been more attracted to Fantasy than Science Fiction/Anticipation so I guess that even if Fallout 4 turns out to be a masterpiece, I'd still prefer TW 3, purely based on subjective factors. But still, it's way too early to compare the two of them. Fallout 4 isn't even out yet and we have only seen like 30 minutes of the game.
No Bloodborne? Sad, that was an incredible game. This year just has too many great games.
Yep. We get borh, it doesn't matter. Fallout probably won't have as good of storytelling and questing, but the crafting and home building looks amazing. AND both will have unparalleled worlds, filled with detail in every corner. I loved TW3's combat, though it's a bit easy, I do like that enemies don't level with you as it makes progression seems real. Bit I also love Vats and the fps gunplay, while keeping 3rd person. They both win in my book.
Two totally different types of RPGs so it's tough. I am a die hard fan of the Fallout universe though. Witcher on the other hand is brilliant.
I think mgs will be better than both. But that's just my opinion.
Yeah, coz MGS is the greatest RPG series in history.
This is all IF Fallout 4 even releases before the New Year, which I still kinda doubt. If it does, Witcher 3 will have been thoroughly patched and have substantial DLC to bolster it. If the other Fallouts are any indication, we can expect at least 6 months of patching to follow 4's release.
I don't think they will delay it. It's been being worked on since I be leave 2009. So plenty of time left for bug testing.
They also said the game is pretty much done, so that leaves time to squash the bugs.
My question is why isn't all this tw3 dlc already on the game. I know it's free but must people are done with it now and will probably never play it again. And if it takes tw3 until fallout to be all patched then it shouldn't have been released till fallout.
Hey, at least the DLC is free! Not like these other blood sucking money hungry vampires of developers...right Ubisoft and EA?
From what I've seen of Fallout 4 so far it's already beaten Witcher 3 for me RPG wise. The customization is great, you can choose your own path, be whatever you want, customization, building, crafting and modding. That's the info we know so far...it's still early days.
It's gonna be hard to choose, i freaking loved Witcher 3 but i've waited 5 years for a new Fallout.
Witcher 3, but everyone is entitled to my opinion
Pillars of Eternity, because unpopular reasons.
Agreed and Bloodborne also came out,.. So don't really see my opinion change in anyway
Right..... A game which has been out for a few months now. Compared to a game which is still a few months from release. Yeah, seems like a fair face off.... NOT! Even so, I'm all for Fallout 4
I'm hoping all Fallout 4 features showcased to date are all present in the final game.
Both are fantastic franchises made by masters in the Western RPG genre so they are co-mvp of GOTY for me! You cannot never have too many RPG in a year..especially 2 great ones.
I tried fallout NV, and it's not my cup of tea. I like it when main characters actually talk for starters. Gimme witcher and read dead over those other open world games, by a mile.
Witcher 3 because it has been released.
Witcher 3 is already one of the greatest games of all time. Fallout 4 has a lot to live up to.
And Pillars of Eternity just gets left out of it all together. So sad. Such a great RPG.
It's a PC game. N4G and the scum that comment here couldnt be more anti-PC if it tried. Pathetic journalist/gaming news site.
How about wait until Fallout 4 actually releases to ask this question?
Bloodborne all the way for me. The gameplay and all the RPG mechanics in it with the Multiplayer aspec just make it perfect for me. Will have to see how Fallout 4 is though. I'm sure it will be great, but if it's too much like 3 and New Vegas in just a new setting, I will be disappointed. I want there to be a lot of new aspects to it, I want them to take risks. Playing it safe would just make it feel like it's another popular franchise not doing anything new.
Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 Got my GOTY no doubt.
Although I can say without hesitation that Witcher 3 was/is the best damn RPG (by far) I've ever had the joy of playing, I doubt it has a large enough fan base to win such a title. Bethesda and the Fallout franchise have been around for too long, and have far too many die-hard fans to not get the most votes, regardless of how empirically good (or bad) Fallout 4 turns out to be.
Jesus, Calm down. One of the games isn't even released yet!
Witcher 3 and no one played Fallout 4 yet
Bloodborne dwarfs both. Gameplay isn't an afterthought in Bloodborne, Fallout 4 still has that same clunky walking and terrible shooting and the Witcher 3's combat could've been better...Gameplay over everything as it should be. Pillars of Eternity is left out aswell, apparently people don't care about gameplay anymore.
I think these 2 games will be different enough that we don't need to do a direct VS comparison. There is 1 big question that I'm sure is on everyone's mind though. After the very high quality of the quests and sub quests in Witcher Wild Hunt, will Fallout 4 have a similar quality in terms of quests. Damn, sometimes during those dialogues I put down my controller and felt like I was watching a quality TV show. Nice writing, nice dialogue, good voice acting, these are the things that make me happy. Also, I really hope that Gamespot do a special on Fallout 4 like the 3 part video thing they did for Witcher Wild Hunt, that thing was top quality! http://is.gd/FdLfyF
I don't care about GOTY especially in 2015 , MGSV , Bloodborne , The Witcher 3 , Fallout 4 they all are great games from great studios so i'll be waiting for MGSV:TPP and Fallout 4 for now.
Yeah, forget about game of the year, this is a great year for games. Can't wait to see what's next!!
Fallout 4 > overrated Witcher and overrated Bloodborne
I can tell you now , witcher 3 , and before you say anything , I've played fallouts , loved them , but witcher is truly masterclass , character design , game play , side quests etc , incredible. Don't get me wrong I'll fully reserve my judgement till I delve into fallout. But ncharacters in witcher IMO , stay with you , especially the main protagonist , Gerald... I mean geralt. Thick as oaty shite..
I was never a big fan of RPG games, but after buying The Witcher 3, I have so much respect for these types of games. My eyes have been opened, so i'm also really excited for Fallout 4. I'm loving TW3 , so far, & can't wait to play the DLC for the game as well. In terms of The Witcher 3 vs. Fallout 4, I personally don't care which game receives GotY. As long as Fallout 4 is an amazing game, in its own unique way, i'm happy. I'll decide my RPG GotY when I finish both. I can't wait to respectfully hear & agree to disagree to the difference of opinions when Fallout 4 releases =)
For me personally The Witcher series is a staple of Western RPGs, however we don't have to choose. Play both. :)
FO4, no contest.
Btw, I only chose FO4 over TW3. Of all RPGs this year the best is FFX HD for PS4. It's the best RPG since it was created, actually, and don't see it being dethroned any time soon.
This is a hard one, but I think W3 will win by a slim margin.
ULTIMATE GOTY? Fallout? clickbait?LOL itseems somebody forgot or purposely leave MGSV behind..did anyone watch latest mgsv E3 gameplay?the freedom,the complete package of features have everyone forgot how bad reaction to fallout demo during E3?janky graphics,animation,combat ex.shooting... have everyone forget how bethesda games gameplay always be? lot of everyone love fallout,skyrim...it has impressive point of it was,but not lets easier to crown something over hype...goty was not something to give easily... we currently live in an era where bad gameplay game always sell alot,get high review,media favourite dont get me wrong..im not saying its shitty game...its not even came out...sure it great own its way..everything had pro and cons.. im also one of people waiting for it..but it was ridiculous to blindly crown something like this... "ULTIMATE" not mere words..
