Those of you that haven't played PlayStation 3's biggest exclusive of this year should check out this amazing deal. (Other great deals for Mass Effect 2 and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves as well)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes that was my point. You stated it better.
Can't we wait till like October or November after certain games have come out?
Mafia 2? From what I've heard that game is supposed to be freaking amazing :)
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.
this will shock some, but my pick is bayonetta.
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?
Nothing personal, but you have a bad taste in games with super low standards if Bayonetta is your GOTY.
booni3...so you enjoy incomprehensible stories, horrible dialog and butchered Frank Sinatra songs?
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
Nice list. I agree with most of your picks.
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?
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.
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.
From what I've played this year, GOWIII is my pick. Most disappointing game goes to FFXIII.
think about the things you can do in lbp2, its a revolution in gaming.
Play the game first before you make a judgment.
I agree with LBP2 being the innovation of Gaming.
Ehh Mass Effect 2 was allright, but the whole thing is basically just gathering up teammates and the suicide mission wasn't all that great. Personally I don't think the plot was as good as the first one.
FFXIII was fantastic, and much better than mass effect and gow iii
Definitely isnt better than gow3, FF story was extremely boring and game doesnt pick up until midway. I think FF shouldve been a co-op game though definitely wouldve made it a better game with the system they used.
you must be dreaming, FFXIII was my biggest dissapointing of all time, I hate to remember this game, I used to hype this game, but now im big hater. (P.S I completed the game and its avearge at best)
While FFXIII is definitely an amazing game, my favorite Final Fantasy no less, I still think both Mass Effect 2 and God of War III were better-ish. It's a close call though. It really comes down to direction and presentation. The latter of which I feel surpasses FFXIII, barely. @ 10.2 - lol, I find that hard to believe. If anybody has made it as far as Palumpolum and still hates the game, I'd find it hard to take that person seriously.
I doubt that any other game due out this year will effect me the same way Mass Effect 2 did. Definitely my GOTY choice, which is the only I care about.
Contenders will be: ME2 Mario Galaxy GoW3 Either LBP2/HeavyRain for innovation Starcraft2
God of War III
