Deja Vu: Looks Like 2011 Will be Another Uncharted Year - GOTY Written all Over it

TQcast writes: Did you see the Uncharted 3 trailer? Well if you haven’t, look below. Uncharted 3 simply looked amazing! This looked very familiar to 2008, when the new Uncharted 2 trailer premiered on the VGAs. Just as Uncharted 2 became arguably the best game in existence and 2009 Game of the Year, Uncharted 3 is on its similar path and nothing can stop it. Or can it? (PS3)

True, we still don't know if all these games are set in stone though for 2011.

After the Little Big Planet 2 delay I will remain skeptical =\
LORD-PHOENIX  +   1728d ago
personally when all the fillers are removed the only two i can see it being between is...
the last guardian and uncharted 3

I still have that tingly about RAGE setting a new bar in gaming.

Why do people put TLG in every fucking list even though there's yet any gameplay footage?

Edit: oops, there is, but it's still a bit overhyped IMO.

What are you talking about there's plenty TLG gameplay footage.
-X-  +   1727d ago
Crazy amount of games coming out next year, but if I REALLY had to cut down the list to 5...it would be...

The Elder Scrolls V
The Last Guardian
LittleBigPlanet 2
Uncharted 3
Portal 2

I choose REALLY hard....but I have a feeling that Elder Scrolls might get pushed back. So If it does get pushed back replace it with.......................... ............................... .....ummm.......*tries to pick really hard*..............Batman: Arkham City.

Also is a Assassins Creed game coming out in 2011?? because im pretty sure there is.
gaffyh  +   1727d ago
@1.1.3 - If you've played SOTC and ICO, you'd know why. Those games were pretty much the best games last generation and make it into most gamers' top 10 lists, so it isn't hard to see why everyone thinks TLG will be just as good.

Although you have a great point and great list, the same thing was said about it in 2008 and no other game could deliver what Uncharted 2 did.
-Alpha  +   1727d ago
While it wiped many awards, Arkham Asylum & Demon's Souls were also favorites by many.

UC3 has way too much competition, 2011 is heavily populated and there is no way UC3 will win so easily this time with games like LBP2, Elder Scrolls, TLG, etc.

It's got as good as a chance as those titles
spektical  +   1727d ago
uncharted 3 can walk away with just as many awards as in 09, if the same quality with even more additions and huge upgrades.. then u3 should be the clear cut winner, no question.
-Alpha  +   1727d ago
Of course it can walk away with just as many awards, no one is stopping them from doing that, but that doesn't stop the fact that there is heavy competition.

2011 will have GOTY going left and right to numerous games, there really wont be any clear cut winner when numerous other games will do something different for audiences.

I'm willing to bet TLG will have a better story and be a better SP game as a result for me, and I know that there are so many other games that will have great gameplay. Demon's Souls IMO had much more rewarding and fun gameplay than UC2 did.

UC isn't a clear cut winner for 2011 just because 2009 was. It most definitely will win GOTY-- but that doesn't mean much when so many other games are likely to be just as great.

My money is on The Last Guardian and LittleBigPlanet 2.

As much as I love the Uncharted series, I have to agree with Alpha that it's gonna face tough competition next year.....which means that there are tons of great games for us to play next year. That is in no way negative and it makes me thrilled what I get to play next year. If these games can give Uncharted 3 a run for its money then it's gonna be a great year for us gamers and really bad for our wallets!

@jack burton

I really cant see 18,19,20,21,and 23 to be GOTY worthy.

Maybe 19 but I haven't seen enough to make a decision. Everything else seems like good competition to me.
Legacy_Killa  +   1727d ago
No offence man but if u have ratchet and clank all 4 one on that list i know you just talking out your ass now lolz Only 10 of those games got a shot at GOTY!!

There was no screen tearing in Uncharted 2 so that just proves you haven't played it.
justinb1  +   1727d ago
No screen tearing in UC2 due to V-SYNC. A sizable amount of screen tearing in UC1 though, not too bad but still noticable. Didn't stop it from being the best looking game of that year though.
Finalfantasykid  +   1727d ago
Screen tearing was non existent in UC2. I think they even used triple buffering O_o.
Der_Kommandant  +   1727d ago
They did it again

Dont know how...
Shackdaddy836  +   1727d ago
Not tryin to start nothing but they showed you a 2 minute trailer that barely showed anything except how good the graphics look. You cant make a decision off of any game like that no matter how good it looks.
femshep  +   1727d ago
uncharted, elder scrolls,mass effect and last guardian will battle it out
...........needs to be a tie!

Iono. I love Uncharted but it got a hefty competition against Elder Scroll V.
Shackdaddy836  +   1727d ago
Don't know why people disagreed. Either ES haters or Uncharted fanboys since we have only seen a small trailer for each(barely even a trailer for ES - more like a teaser).

Try to actually wait and see some actual gameplay footage from both before making decisions people.

Elder scrolls 5
Last Gaurdian
Metal Gear Rising
Deus Ex 3

D-Lite1  +   1727d ago
For Me Its Between Infamous 2 and Uncharted 3 Both are the best ps3 exclusives this gen XD
Ninver  +   1727d ago
GOTY 2011 belongs to any of these ps3 exclusives:

Uncharted 3
Killzone 3
Infamous 2
Resistance 3
...and many more

Not only will it be goty 2011 it will most likely be the best game ever made IMHO it will replaced uncharted 2.
jdktech2010  +   1727d ago
Don't forget there's a chance BF3 might be out next year as well....scary scary scary

The Old Republic could be excellent as well...why did I have to pick such an awesome yet expensive hobby?
ironcreed  +   1727d ago
A little game called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim says hello. Uncharted 3 looks fantastic, though.

that's how big UC is, only drake, baby
ufo8mycat  +   1727d ago
Uncharted 3 will definitely win GOTY 2011.

LBP2 ? Kids games don't win GOTY awards
KZ3 another average FPS

No contest really.
distorted_reality  +   1727d ago
Lol @ this "article".

I like Uncharted 2, but I was left fairly underwhelmed by the trailer tbh. The ME3 trailer was by far more impressive to me.

Do I think either will be GOTY? Both will have chances, but realistically only slightly more than any other game that's being released.

None of us have any real clue as to what's going to happen over the next year. There are so many massive titles already penned in (admittedly some may slip to 2012) that any statements saying that one game or another is going to be GOTY a year from release is more a sign of intense fanboyism than anything else.

Personally, i'm really looking forward to a great year of gaming, hopefully starting with a bang with DXHR and powering on from there, and for once it looks like all platforms are going to put forward something special.

My "most anticipated" list -

Deus Ex - Human Revolution
Mass Effect 3
Portal 2
Diablo 3

@ metsb - you need to play more games dude.

BIG BIG claim!!

Mass Effect 3 and Uncharted 3 will get GOTY
Laeto256  +   1727d ago
i think inFAMOUS 2 should be carefully watched, considering you have such high-end UC2/3-esque graphics in a OPEN WORLD game it's a major achievement and game changer for open world gaming. I mean even AC cant achieve such high-quality and smooth visuals. Mass Effect 3 will be on GOTY b/c multiplat

so GOTY:

Uncharted 3
Mass Effect 3
KillZone 3

lbp 2 is questionable, but im 100% sure that infamous 2 and UC 3 will be there, the rest could get bumped but i see ME 3 representing 360/multiplats. and GeoW 3 getting bumped out
fooltheman  +   1727d ago
Did you see what I saw?
yogaflame  +   1727d ago
Ps3 exclusives for next year:

1. Killzone 3
2. Uncharted 3
3. Resistance 3
4. Infamous 2
5. LBP2
6. The Last Guardian
7. Twisted Metal
8. Motorstorm
9. Socom 4
10. Ratchet and Clank 4
11. FFversus13( I hope it stay exclusive and not downgraded like FF13 because of xbox 360 )

...And tons of multiplatform games.

MS can talk about there sales and Kinect all they want while we enjoy tons of exclusive while they are stuck with multi platforms and few exclusives. I don't give a damn about sales anymore as long as we are enjoying tons of exclusives.
