Why Batman: Arkham Knight Will Be The Frontrunner for Game Of The Year 2015

While there are plenty of potentially great games coming out this years such as Halo 5, MGS5 and The Witcher 3. ThisGenGaming believes that even with all these obstacles to overcome to win game of the year, Batman: Arkham Knight will succeed.

For the time being it seems to be the only viable contestant for Bloodborn.

that's my thinking - I don't see batman even cracking the top 3.

BG115791517d ago

My bad, complete forgot these two!

Bloodborne wont be the only viable contestant for Game of the Year....but its definitely the first.

We already pretty much know the gaming lineup throughout the entire first half of the year. Based on that, as far as retail games with ***confirmed*** release dates go, my early guess right now for potential GOTY candidates would have to be Bloodborne, Batman Arkham Knight, Metal Gear Solid V, Witcher 3 and Halo 5.

There are plenty of games slated for 2015 release that are VIABLE contestants for Bloodborne.

Witcher 3
Quantum Break
Tom Clancy's The Division
Xenoblade Chronicles X

For Witcher 3 and MGSV, you guys are right. I forgot about those.

Didn't know that Zelda and Xenoblade X came out this year?

I don't see Tom Clancy's and Quantum has viable contenders. QB, I've seen the video, but I have to play it to actually know if it's good or not. The concept is a bit weird to me. It's just an opinion, nothing more.

For Batman it's the 4th game. The game went back to the original studio that worked on the first two games, that were excellent. What I've seen so now seems premium material.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on 3DS is quite brilliant.

sorane1517d ago

Pillars of Eternity says hi :)

joab7771517d ago

Wrong. I honestly think that The Witcher 3 will shock ppl that don't know alot about it.

It's gonna be what I thought. Bloodborne, TW3, Batman, and MGS5 unless Bethesda announces and releases something.

Big fan of the Batman games, but it's not a frontrunner in my opinion.

Bloodborne, Witcher 3, and MGS 5. Those are my picks. Not saying Batman's going to be bad, I'm sure it'll be really good, just that the games I mentioned are (going to be) a class above.

mafiahajeri1517d ago

I don't care about GOTY I just want this game to be an amAzing end to an amazing franchise!

WellyUK1517d ago

I would say it is but it's up there along with MGS5, Witcher 3 and Bloodborne. There's always that sleeper hit as well, wonder what that will be this year.

KnottaTroll1517d ago

Batman has to stop getting delayed and actually release this year to even be considered for goty 2015.

JWiLL5521517d ago

What a necessary comment.

I'd rather a game is delayed and released polished to the developers vision rather than the rush jobs we see so often now.

Have a little faith in Rocksteady, they've earned it.

Jaqen_Hghar1517d ago

Let's hold off on that. Bloodborne has set the standard high and Halo and Zelda will be up there. Also Witcher 3, MGS5, and many more 3rd parties and downloadable titles will be up there (Abzu, No man's Sky, Everyone's Gone to Rapture, and Rime) as possible candidates depending on how reviews go for them.

Bought arkham alysum and arkham city on black Friday 2 years ago for only $28. Hated them. How the hell did it win game of the year or have a goty edition? Those games are repeative and terrible. The stealth and so on makes it slow and boring. I had a way better time with ryse as far as hack and slash goes. No one bought arkham origins and have no idea why all the hype over this one. Will gamefly it. Will never buy another hack and slash game for full price. Obviously halo 5 or tomb raider will be games of the year. Runner up could be the witcher,or mgs 5. Just waiting on mortal kombat now :D

Legion211517d ago

Wait, are you calling Batman hack and slash?

ilikepizza1513d ago

Yes, it's a hack and slash.
