No surprises really. Horizon Zero Dawn is a beautiful Masterpiece and will surely win some GOTY awards

This year will be competitive for goty
With the potential of:
Persona 5
God of war (if it comes this year)
And mario...competition will be stiff.
So far horizon is my goty slightly edging zelda.....but we shall see.
It will be a stellar year for ps4 and the switch.

I actually think god of war 4 and persona 5 will be my favorites for playstation...especially persona 5

Red Dead if it indeed comes out this year as well as Shadow Of War. Its going to be a CRAZY year of GOTY! I know many outlets will give many of the games you listed GOTY.

Folks need to remember......The Last Of Us...AS A NEW IP, got more awards then Zelda LBW and GTAV.....

If someone told me such a thing would happen during a year where we would receive literally 2 of the BEST GAMES IN THOSE IP's HISTORIES AT THE TIME, yet a new IP would get more awards, I would have not believed you.

Yet The Last Of Us was the little game that could lol.

Don't sleep on new IPs folks. I think Zelda and Horizon will challenge many outlets on what they think goes into a GOTY.

GameSpot gave Zelda GOTY in 2013 and I actually really liked LBW, but actually felt The Last Of Us deserved it more.

Gameinformer gave 2013 to The Last Of Us.

Well see how every thing packs up in the fall.

@Erik- I hope God Of War makes it this year, as for PS titles, I know I'll like P5, but Horizon will likely have the biggest impact for me on the PS4 front.

New concept, creative world, amazing story. For how unique and different it is, I'd side with HZD for me.

God Of War even with a new setting and mythology might come down to more of the same, I heard they want more RPG elements in the game and the world is larger, but they are not really to call it open world. I'd still be playing GOW for the same reasons I played the last, level up my move set, kill stuff, epic story. If its anything more...MIND BLOWN! lol

GOW will not be out this year, and i am sure Mario will be delayed lke all other major Mario episodes.
Holiday 17 is a placeholder like we see so many this year.

Horizon is great, but we have also NieR, NioH and Gravity Rush 2.
Couldn't be any better for a gamer.
This is a year to remember!
