The biggest shooter of the year is finally here, but how does it stand up to what's come before?
GotY will be a battle between Halo 4 and CoD then. I know which side I am picking.
They both scored very well
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.
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.
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.. Evil
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
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.
The walking dead the game is for my #1 :) Then comes the unfinished swan 3# Halo 4
Halo had a higher score
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!
There is no way in hell one of those two will one GOTY, looks like you're a delusional 12 year old CoD fanboy.
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.
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......
farming simulator is the best fps this year !!!
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.
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
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.
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: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Then compare it to this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
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
I knew IGN was going to do this. 9.3/10
shit is becoming the next duke nukem forever
Why is IGN score for Halo 4 legit, but the COD score is.. "i knew ign would do this" type of talk? And look at all the cool COD haters that are in the minority coming into a COD thread just to say they aren't buying the game. Cool story guys! And to the dude who says BF3 and Uncharted 3 are his kings of graphics... A. BF3 graphics are worse than COD graphics on console, so you must be playing the PC version. No arguments from me on the PC looking better... but the console version is on par or less than COD on console. B. Uncharted 3 has been outdone by the new console king of graphics.. and that's Halo 4. Halo 4 is the best looking console game of this generation imo.
Yeah no. Call of Duty doesn't look anywhere near as good as Battlefield 3 on consoles. 60 frames per second doesn't mean a game has better graphics. It means it runs faster. The textures in BF3 are vastly superior to MW3 and BO2, as is the lighting, smoke effects, and particle effects. It's not even close. Also, I never said BF3 and Uncharted 3 were "my kings of graphics". I said I was spoiled by Uncharted 3 because I've played the game extensively. I haven't played Halo 4 (yet) so it's kind of hard for me to be spoiled by the graphics of a game I haven't played. I wasn't claiming that Uncharted 3 is the best looking game there is, just that it's one of the best I've played for some time. Watch those links I posted and tell me with a straight face that the Call of Duty video looks better graphically than the Battlefield video.
"A. BF3 graphics are worse than COD graphics on console" lol no
