Here's a list of games that are supposed to be front runners for the coveted game of the year title
WTF, Terrible list. BioShock at 5th!? This game is number one chance and already has the highest MetaCritic average of 9.6. Also, I'm no Halo fan but no Halo 3 among top 10!? Zelda DS is alread getting less than superb reviews (8/10 from GameDaily).
should have been on the bottom microsoft paid off Critic. so Critic have no say here
Bioshock is good while it lasted.... but is way too short and not alot of re-play value, but it still should stay on Game of the Year list. anyway I dont think the order of the list mean anything... well for me COD4 is probably the best this year... the beta owns... But no Halo on the list ??? WHATTT!?!? also Dec 3rd Super Smash Bro's Brawl will come out, that should be on the list as well.
Halo 3 should be in that list. It is a master piece. I have played (and beat 2 times) Bioshock. I would choose Halo 3 for the online advancements as GOTY.
If Halo 3 wins GOTY. I am selling my 360. There is no way its going to better than cod4, Unreal T 3, or Mario Bros. Galaxy. And In that case since theres no halo 3? Why isn't there Heavenly Sword ;P P.S. Halo3 will win atleast best Co-op.... Unless Haze can beat it.
that "The list is however in no order of preference" My personal pick would be Mass Effect next to Bioshock. If Mass Effect can get the action down pack then it should be a easy pick. Story, Graphics, Sound, Gameplay-Ton of Customization, and Replay value.
my personal pick is Mass Effect i'm willing to bet a shiny penny. any takers? @Kulupoo i get what you're saying but were talking about a Bioware RPG
well is hard to judge RPG by how it looks...you really needs to sit down and slowly enjoy it. but from the feedback and video, its pretty promising. EDIT: ya I know I enjoy KOTOR :D
I was excited about Mass Effect but now I see it is over rated. i will at least rent it but it looks boring now that I have seen more of the game. I do think that Too Human is going to surprise when it comes out though.
How is mass effect over rated have you played it? wait till the game drops then talk.
1) God of War II (PS2) 2) Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) 3) Call of duty 4:Modern Warfare (PC, Xbox 360,PS3) 4) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (PS3) 5) Halo 3 (360) 6) Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (PS3) Next year it will go to Metal Gear Solid 4, just my prediction but if it goes to a multi-platform game it will be GTA IV
I forgot COD4:MW!!! That and I REALLY want R&CF:TofD...but I don't think it'll be in my top 5.
Great list. I have to agree nearly 95% on this one. I would however not take Bioshock ou tof the picture completely. That game was and is awesome even if it short and has little replay value.
this isn't news...just an excuse to get people worked up. you post games that aren't even released....dont post a AAA game like Halo based on reviews and put Bioshock in fifth when it has the highest reviews for any game within the last three years... who approves this sh*t?
welcome too fanboy central.
Welcome, my son. CONFORM!!! CONFORM!!! Actually...if you can find an intelligent person to talk to...this site is great for private messaging. Just look for people that have good/valid points as to why they prefer one system over another. Trust me...each system has its strong points. Find a smart gamer though. I know you usually have to be on a Counter Strike server to find someone who knows what it means to be a gamer, but I find that anyone can be a gamer if they truly appreciate what the industry has brought to them.
@leon Private messaging :/ Pffft [email protected]
the zelda game is amazing. the controls seem weird at first but are ingenious.
I myself didnt think it would work....but it has.
wtf, how did Drakes Fortune get on the list but not halo 3?
It's just someone's stupid opinion man. Wtf @ no Halo 3. Even if it's not "Game of the Year", the innovations in multiplayer alone should have made it a strong enough candidate. @ uncharted: I don't think a Naughty Dog game has ever made Game of the Year, but I think for the first time, they're pushing behind making their first mass market action adventure shooter game a big one. As far as I can see from the video's, it's in the position to take Game of the Year if it can come out strong in AI, ability to free-roam and explore, replayability and unloackables, and upmostly, outstanding technical achievement and gameplay. (The last two already look done, so Uncharted should be a strong contender)
Because Naughty Dog actually EARNS their hype. Innovations??? Name one thing on there that you CAN'T do on Counter Strike already? You can do forge...except it's actually a lot more in depth on CS. You can pause it and use the video feed too, so don't try that one. Anyone care to challenge the great Counter Strike?
List of POSSIBLE GOTY for me: -Bioshock (it was just amazing gameplay and story, no matter how you look at it) -Heavenly Sword (I've never seen acting like that in a game...and the sheer scale of it was so immersive!) -Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (Nef' sed) -Super Mario Galaxy (watch the intro on Gametrailers.com and you'll see what I mean) -Unreal Tournament III (It's Epic. They deserve it for just DESTROYING every other multi-player game out there.) -NOT HALO 3!!! Why would Halo 3 be on the list when all these other, better games are available??? What makes Halo 3 better than UTIII or even Haze? Or RFOM???
i think itll be between rock band halo3 bioshock haze uncharted ratchet unreal tournament crysis god of war 2
Or Heanvely Sword on PS3, multi player without a doubt Warhawk. but seriously im in love with HS just looking at what the GoW people are doing with the PSP version it makes me wonder what they will do to top HS and when they make GoW 3 for PS3 !!!! oh man this is so freaking exciting. Sygma is also good but HS is just another level.
Ohkay...i forgot Crysis and Rock Band also. How stupid am I? Don't answer that... EDIT: DANG IT!!! ASSASSIN'S CREED ALSO! I have it reserved! I should have thought of it! DANG!
also Assassins Creed.........my goty choice........i cant wait for that game
1080p how can you go wrong. All you need are great resolution specs.
deserves to win. that game is epic. bioshock deserves to be up there, along with heavenly sword, halo should be there too but doesn't deserve to take the top spot.
I enjoyed playing that game and the story line is so good!!
07 is not over. I will wait before I give my vote. I would have said Bioshock. Since I got Halo3 Bioshock has been on pause. I want to see how COD4 turns out. The last online by Infinity Ward in COD2 was a joke.
uh, i promise you will love CoD4. not a fan of the previous installments, but this one is amazing. the graphics, the gameplay...fvcking everything.
Mass Effect for x360 Or Uncharted for ps3 OR Mario Galaxy Wii both look amazing and both look like they play great..... but will they score (as high) or higher than Bioshock?? We'll see :) I just don't want a ps2 game to win 07....Its a sequel too D: The next years should be about the births and success of new IPs not some stupid sequel ( no offence to gow2/halo3/and ect.)
I knew someone was going to b!tch about Halo not being on the list :P Hey GOW2 is a great game!
gonna be tough to choose this year. not only are CoD4, Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed good choices, but there's several other's that should've made that list.
MASS EFFECT GOTY END OFF PS3 FAN BOY WANT U TO FORGOT MASS EFFECT DONT
Are these your 15 favorite words?
I'd like too say GOW2, but these heavy hitters its up against.... I say Bioshock, COD4, or UT3 if any of those win I wouldnt complain...or mass effect either but its still kinda up in the air until a demo or beta or somthing drops I.E. the game itself.
I think Infinity Ward has to do something stupid for Cod4 not to win game of the year, it's odds on favorite for me. If you had to judge it on sales then Halo3 would be a clear winner but it's certainly not game of the year material imo, i had my first foray into Halo3 last night and found myself very underwhelmed. However i also think if they get the gameplay right Assassins Creed could be up there with a shout as on paper it looks incredible and is something slightly different.
my list and i bet it will be true. 1.mass effect 2.bioshock 3.halo 3/assassins creed/cod4 4ut3 pc version as ps3 is delayed till next year these are the titles i think will win number 1 being the most likely i think to win mass effect then it goes down to 4the least game i think wil win ut3 but its in the list so its an aaa game.
Well for sure Halo 3, Bioshock, and Mass Effect will be on that list. All you haters can't deny that Halo 3 is one of the highest rated games of all time. For the other contenders, I don't know much about the Wii and Sony only has maybe God of War 2. I still say Mass Effect for GOTY!
i would say bioshock is the game to beat this year.
Any list that leaves out some of the biggest games of the year is faulty. At this point, you can't have a game of the year list without Halo 3 in it. Despite how you feel about how the game looks, plays, or whatever, it can not be denied that this has been the biggest game of the year. It sold millions in days. It got high marks almost completely across the board from major sites and publications. It may not win game of the year, but you darn well better believe it deserves to be on any list of nominations.
