Uncharted 3 will be game of the year

MMGN: It’s been a bit of a down year, with Portal 2 the only game in contention that has already been released. That’s all set to change as we near the business end of 2011, but Uncharted 3 is all the matters when talking the best of the best.

Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City will provide some completion, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Gears of War 3 will make up the numbers and Forza 4 has the distinct disadvantage of being a racing game. Nobody will consider it as best game overall.

They’re all irrelevant anyway, as the best game will be Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Uncharted 2 was game of the year because for its time it did lots of new stuff and surprised everybody with its online MP, graphics, story-telling, gameplay, etc. But UC3 looks more like a slightly updated version of UC2 and with games like Skyrim looking so epically good it's not going to be that easy to chose a GOTY.

I agree, I think this years GOTY will come down to Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, RAGE, and even Arkham Assylum.

rabidpancakeburglar2508d ago

I think you mean Arkham City and that also sounds like a porn parody to Arkham Asylum

Fez2508d ago

Skyrim sounds a bit dirty too.

J86blum2508d ago

Thank you lol I just noticed that.

starchild2508d ago

Uncharted 3 will definitely be in the running, but there are a lot of other fantastic looking games yet to come out.

In addition to the games already mentioned I would like to mention Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

@Peaceful_Jelly, there's more to a game than a minor graphical upgrade. Assuming you're judging based on the Multiplayer Beta and not the Single-player (where it counts the most).

I don't see how UC3 can be a slightly updated version of UC2 but Skyrim isn't seen as a slightly updated version of Oblivion.

A new engine is nice, but it's not going to change the overwhelming mechanics, style and themes of the game from what Oblivion did.

They're both realistically updated versions of the previous, but when you're building from great building blocks that isn't a bad thing. So really, that's a poor argument.

Would also be the same if someone was to argue it about Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3 or MW3.

I agree that u3 will battle and i wouldn't b surprised if it won. But, do not count out deus ex, rage, and even AC revelations. I do not envy those we rely on for reviews and goty awards, not this year. Imagine having to review the mentioned 5 or 6 games knowing the implications. Rage may have an advantage as a new IP, and those that add the most or improve the most. Damn, its gonna b crazy. It may b a year in which five different games get goty honors from different places. I'm just happy i get to play them all.

My picks for GOTY

Portal 2

ATi_Elite2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Obviously whoever wrote this article never played The Witcher 2 or has NO clue that Guild Wars 2 is slated to release this year.

Portal 2 and L.A. Noire are solid contenders too.

all in all though GOTY is between The Witcher 2 and Battlefield 3. Guild Wars 2 releasing in December may hurt it's chances!!

All your favorite games will win a GOTY award anyway so who cares as too many publications hand this award out now a days!!

Guild Wars 2 is releasing this year? No way, man...Give me some links or something, I'm about to die of a stroke over here.

I thought ArenaNet said "it's done when it's done."

Cmpunk2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

ohh but uncharted 3 is game of the year

every game looks shit in comparison

hamoor2508d ago

Uncharted 3 is definitely on of the contenders for GOTY but this time competition is very strong!

I think SKYRIM will eat most of GOTY awards. Even for SKYRIM it won't be easy.

uncharted 2 beat out some hella good games for goty, including assassins creed 2, and batman arkham asylum. both excellent games. uncharted 3 has a shot especially since its improving on uc2.

imho the runners up are

portal 2
uncharted 3
littlebigplanet 2

P_Bomb2508d ago

Uncharted1 was my GOTY before it even became popular. First game I played on my first HDTV back in '07. I knew Uncharted2 would be my GOTY before it was even released. Needless to say, I have faith that Uncharted3 can complete the hat-trick.

NovusTerminus2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

GotY is a hard thing to pick.
So far it is looking something like this for me.
Dead Space 2
Dark Souls
(Off the top of my head. Missing a few I am sure.)

Uncharted is going to be great. But all in all we know what to expect from it. I look for games that are different then the normal. Which is why I am not psyched for any of the 11 FPS games this year.

Sizzon2508d ago

I don't think so, I think Skyrim will get it. But can't wait for U3!
