GotY will be a battle between Halo 4 and CoD then. I know which side I am picking.

Kingdom Come2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

There have been more releases than just these two you know?

Halo 4, Walking Dead The Game, Journey, Guild Wars 2, Dishonoured, Borderlands 2, Assassins Creed 3, Mass Effect 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Forza Horizon and many more.

Don't forget about Max Payne 3, that game was badass.

Kingdom Come2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

That it was, fantastic campaign and interesting multiplayer. This has been a great year for game releases...

I'm also predicting Far Cry 3 will be a GOTY Contender.

EVILDEAD3602663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

There have definately been some great gaming experiences this year, but none of those games take away that Treyarch really derserves some kudos what what they seem to have pulled off here.

It's safe to say that treyarch have finally emerged out from under Infinity ward's shadow.

Zombies FTW..

For me an owner of all consoles and a good game pc i choose Halo 4. 343 industries have achieved a lot more with Halo 4 than treyarch with call of duty 9 in the series ( Yeah i know different stories). Call of duty 2 was the shit. I loved to play with the germans or allies. With that game you had no killstreaks or perks it was pure skill:D I miss the times

Kingdom Come2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

My vote currently goes to Halo 4 also, but The Walking Dead Game is a close candidate, I look forward to seeing how Telltale handle the closing chapter of season one. A lot of developers have taken risks this year, whether its through writing, or through taking their existing franchises in unexpected directions. I predict varying choices for GOTY Awards this year.

Sanquine902663d ago

The walking dead the game is for my #1 :) Then comes the unfinished swan 3# Halo 4

callahan092663d ago

Gosh I just realized how busy I've been this year. Life gets complicated sometimes and you just don't have the time to devote to things like you want to. It sucks.

I haven't really sat down and played a game since Journey. I've been wanting to check out Kingdoms of Amalur, Dragon's Dogma, Mass Effect 3, and Dishonored, but just haven't had time. I already own all of them except Dishonored. Bought them, and haven't even played them once yet. And sadly, of them, right now the one that I most want to play if I had time to play would be Dishonored, so when things die down a bit and I have some free time (hopefully soon!) I'm going to have to get Dishonored and try that. It's just the game right now I'm hungry for.

I'll give Halo 4 a shot as well.

Lots of good games have come and gone and I need to really catch up!

Awesome_Gamer2663d ago

There is no way in hell one of those two will one GOTY, looks like you're a delusional 12 year old CoD fanboy.

DiRtY2663d ago

LOL I am picking Halo 4 and I am 27 years old. Halo 4 has the better story, better online, better graphics, better sound. There is no way I will got with CoD over Halo. I don't dislike CoD like some people on N4G do, but Halo offers more IMO.

taquito2662d ago (Edited 2662d ago )

goty......blops 2.....halo 4......i dunno

Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2, far, far better than blops 2 and halo 4, though i am having fun with halo 4 and am considering buying blops 2, maybe......

I'm not a COD fan at all but there's going to be conspiracy theories about the score. Cool for COD fans but like always, I'm avoiding this.

gillri2663d ago

if it wasnt for the ending furore I think ME3 would get IMO

I think this year is quite a weak tbh with The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite and Tomb raider not coming outil next year all of which would have made great christmas games

when you take into account that Halo 4 and AC3 were reviewed well but not superbly we have a weak year in gaming, next year will be amazing though

omarzy2663d ago

This comment section is going to be fun.

interesting score. from my hands on with the game so far i'd have to give it a 7.5/10. it's the same formula with slightly enhanced graphics.

GuyManDude2663d ago

Enhanced graphics? Maybe I'm spoiled by BF3 and Uncharted 3 but IGN's review video of Black Ops 2 looks pretty poor in my eyes, especially when it got to the multiplayer portion of the video.

Watch this:

Then compare it to this:

first1NFANTRY2663d ago

hmm i see what you mean. i haven't really played the multiplayer portion but i agree it does look watered down compared to the single player. then again that's always been the case
