last of us or beyond two souls for me personally.
Agreed mate. The last of us will blow my mind as will beyond two souls.
:( No puppeteer
I completely forgot about puppeteer. When is it releasing again?
Couldn't even tell ya.. this year for sure though
No way is a Call of Duty or Battlefield game going to win GOTY, sorry. It's either going to be Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite or GTA V in my opinion. Strong consideration to the next 3D Mario game for the Wii U since they are always up for GOTY awards.
A 22 item gaming article that consists of just 1 page and not 23?? Is this the power of next gen? The future is here boys. Breathe it in! GTA V. Obviously.
I believe that TLOU & the new Bioshock will be strong contenders but GTA V is by far the most popular/anticipated game in there so I don't know.. I hope the various sites vote based on quality & not popularity.
honestly imo GTAV doesn't look that ground breaking..very ambitious..yes but offers something different is a big no,Rockstar North is just inferior to Rockstar San Diego that's a fact..just look at the previews for GTAV...gfx are corny and nothing visually special and look a lot like GTAIV...too much difference with playing the 3 characters as the major one which won't appeal all reviewers..i won't be surprised if it doesn't even get to the top 3
Could be Watch Dogs but gtaV more likely. Mario has more chance than half the games on that list but it never gets a look in at GOTY.
ha at this pathetic list... BF4,COD Ghosts,GT6,NFS Rivals,Lost Planet 3(seriously???),The Bureau,Wolfenstein(looks too generic even though fun),Splinter Cell,SRIV,Forza 5,MG Revengeance,God of War Ascension are good but not worthy. personally even a psn game(Rain) has a better change to grab GOTY than those games as Journey last year aswell as i doubt a next gen game would win it.Not a single Japanese game?what a dumbshit imo TLOU is the biggest contender so far
Sorry why are gran turismo and Forza not worthy? Because they are driving games? If any developer deserves more praise than it gets it is polyphony digital they put massive amounts of effort into their games and it shows. Also GT 6 is a Japanese game. I think what you mean by Japanese game is anime. The author isn't a 'dumbshit' because they didn't put an anime game on there they probably just weren't aware of any which they believed had the potential to be GOTY(in their view). Having said that I agree that ghosts should not be on this list. The reveal felt like a parody I mean fish that swim away from you. Is that meant to blow my mind? I was bemused after that reveal I thought I had been trolled it was that bad. Also new engine? Looks exactly the same.
I think GTA5 will win....oh boy it's been 5 years since they released GTA 4.
really tough list... so many good games.
The Last of Us is the only unique game I've seen this year. It will get GOTY
For me, this could've been a 'top 10' article.
Sites are going to give GOTY most likely to Bioshock Infinite, The Last of US, a 3D Mario, or GTA V. But Watch_Dogs and Beyond Two Souls could be surprise games for GOTY.
Half of the games there don't even deserve a mention. I mean, common: Lost Planet 3 and Wolfenstein New Order? Based on what developer track record exactly!? Not to mention, some of the games in the list are already released and we know what they're like: Tomb Raider was good but in a Year where Bioshock Infinite exists it has no chance. And don't even get me started with GOW Ascension? What's such an average game even doing in a GOTY list? Perhaps they confused it with GOW 3!? The Game tanked. Same goes for Metal Gear Rising (If MGS comes out this year it's a different story). The ONLY games with an actual chance to compete with Bioshock Infinite based on developers track record are The Last of Us and GTA V. That is pretty much it. COD and Assassins Creed and Battlefield are on-and-off games with franchise fatigue so I wouldn't count on them, GT6 and Forza 5 and NFS have no chance because racing games are never considered GOTY, and Batman might had a chance if it came from the developers of the previous amazing two games - but right now it's a big unknown. Other than that? Watch Dogs, Infamous and Killzone MIGHT have a chance if they manage to dazzle us on next-gen hardware, but GOTY chances are again slim based on developers track record. And as for Saints Row IV, Splinter Cell Conviction, XCOM and Beyond TS - they will all probably be good, but most of them suffered from troubled development and changes in direction - so once again I wouldn't bet the house on any of them.
I think Fire Emblem Awakening should be on that list instead of BF4 and CoD:Ghosts. I mean, the game is amazing. GTA V will probably win GOTY, though.
Arma 3 for me nothing else gets a look in.
Lots of FPS in the list can be kicked just keep Kill Zone because it will have the edge in graphic, Bio Shock Inf positive feedback from gamers/critics "I still need to play this game to see why everyone talks about it". You can kick Racing/Sports titles, I don't remember GOTY to go for these genres. add "Remember me" New IP-New idea, so far from what I've seen it looks impressive. Now, The GOTY contenders: 1- The Last Of Us 2- Tomb Raidor 3- Bio Shock Inf 4- Beyond 2 souls 5- Remember me I think it will go to TLOU or Beyond 2 souls.
let me fix that headline. "top 22 mainstream games this year"
I'm sure you're not however it's difficult to use the word mainstream and not sound like a hipster.
On what website? so many sites give out game of the year, the award isn't that special.
The Last of us for sure will be GOTY.
Last of Us sounds good, but I bet Watch Dogs gets it.
Watch Dogs or go home...
