mass effect 2 hands down goty from what weve had so far. uc2 is from last year and is not even a contender in 2010.

Persistantthug2718d ago

Afterall, it was AIAS game of the year 2 years ago.

It seems like they've really changed a whole lot of things since then.

We have a lot of time and a whole lot of games to go though....so we really should wait and see.

Oh Jackey boy, I'm pretty sure the GOTY contender being mentioned in the article quote is God of War III ;)

I hope ME2 gets it, the only title since OoT that made me replay a game 4 times. Amazing game.

Mista T2718d ago

Mass Effect 2 will win GOTY, probably the best game I've played this generation

fanboys need to shut it with their prissy disagrees

Mass Effect wont get it. We still have over 6 months left. I say this because Mass Effect buzz is at zero right now.

BeaArthur2718d ago

I would agree with you only because they seem to forget about first half of the year games when it comes time for the GOTY awards. Mass Effect 2 is well worth of the title, but so are a few other games since then.

UnwanteDreamz2718d ago

Yes that was my point. You stated it better.

Myst2718d ago

Can't we wait till like October or November after certain games have come out?

Jikla2718d ago

Mafia 2? From what I've heard that game is supposed to be freaking amazing :)

Myst2718d ago

Hmm, well that's a good choice but I was thinking more along the lines with Red Dead. I had a few others I'd say would be contenders in my opinion but not in line with others more than likely.

booni32718d ago

this will shock some, but my pick is bayonetta.

Jikla2718d ago

not at all. It's a great action game with great combat. It is actually on my top 5 list of goty contenders this year. But will it count since it was originally released in 2009?

Pennywise2718d ago

Nothing personal, but you have a bad taste in games with super low standards if Bayonetta is your GOTY.

BeaArthur2718d ago

booni3...so you enjoy incomprehensible stories, horrible dialog and butchered Frank Sinatra songs?

Pillville2718d ago

Off the top of my head, and making guessing at quality of unreleased games:

Games with a chance:
RDR
ME2
GOWIII
GT5
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Halo Reach

Games with no chance:
Heavy Rain
Alan Wake
FF XIII
Splinter Cell: Conviction

DelbertGrady2718d ago

Nice list. I agree with most of your picks.

kaveti66162718d ago

Heavy Rain has some chance, I think. It garnered enough attention and was well-received. It might be a surprise victory.

Also, which review site or award ceremony's pick are we going to go on? The VGAs?

Pillville2718d ago

I liked Heavy Rain, but it was too short and too odd to win GOTY. Probably could get some best Graphics or Most Original kind of awards, but not overall GOTY.

NeoBasch2718d ago (Edited 2718d ago )

Can't say I agree with that at all. First off, you're listing games that haven't even come out yet. We have no idea how they will perform. End of story. I'm not going to guess which games will make the list. Remember what happened with GTAIV, labeled by critics and gamers as GotY before it even came out. Now look at it.

So far, I would say the GotY contenders are:

1) God of War III
2) Mass Effect 2
3) Final Fantasy XIII
4) Heavy Rain
5) Bayonetta

And unlike most, I've actually played and beat all of those. Those are my Top 5, but there are plenty of others out there that have performed remarkably well: Darksiders, BioShock 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, etc. 2010 has been an amazing year thus far. Let's not forget the games that have helped shape it.

If you were to ask me to pick a GotY right now, out of my Top 5, I'd probably choose God of War III. While Mass Effect 2 and Heavy Rain had an impeccable direction, the fun factor coupled with the insane presentation make God of War III my personal Game of the Year thus far.
