I'm making my way through Uncharted 4 as we speak, and have yet to play Ratchet and Clank. This has been a good year for gaming and, much like last year, I think competition will be tough for GOTY.

stupidusername1803d ago

I have played all the games mentioned in the article but I feel like 2015 was a stronger year so far. Right now I feel like Uncharted 4 is the frontrunner. The other games are very good but I don't quite feel like they are GOTY material imho.
I had hope for Mirror's Edge Catalyst to be a contender but the reviews have been a littile disappointing. Luckily we have Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last Guardian, FF XV, Deus Ex and No Man's Sky to look forward to. (As long as none of them get delays)

I think Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be game of the year this year. That's my prediction anyway.

basilboxer1803d ago

Can't wait for that game! Will be tough to persuade people against UC4 though, right?

SamPao1803d ago

cant wait for deus ex! But it will be tough against Uncharted

I do think it will be tough to beat uncharted 4 (or overwatch, which will win from sites that favor that type of game.) But I do also think many sites tend to go with what's 'new.' Uncharted 4 is great, but of something unexpected pops up and comes close, I think it will win.

I can't recall a multiplayer only title ever winning goty....I haven't played Overwatch, but I loved Uncharted. Naughty Dog can do no wrong.

P.S. Any chance for No Man's Sky or The Last Guardian?

gamerpop1803d ago

DOOM shouldnt be on this list.

game4funz1803d ago

And you shouldn't comment. See? We all have opinions.

BrettAwesome1803d ago

Except it totally should. Shooter of the year? Why not?? It's awesome!

Kleptic1803d ago

totally agree. Doom's single player is incredible. Snapmap has potential if bethesda uncorks it from console restrictions...and the multiplayer is functional enough for a bit of fun...

It likely won't win any 'real' goty awards, but I'm almost positive it'll show up on 'best surprise' lists everywhere.

joedom1803d ago

I hope it's Overwatch or The Witness. It would be nice to see something that isn't part of a franchise/remake win; I'm sure Overwatch is just the beginning of a franchise, but for now it's an original IP and that should be celebrated.

kraenk121803d ago

Both will probably win their respective genre but not GOTY.

The 10th Rider1803d ago

I think it depends on the website. To a PC focused site or a site that's into those types of games, I think overwatch will win. Especially if it gets free content updates between now and the end of the year.

Rai1803d ago

I like overwatch been playing whenever I have the chance but I don't see an online only game winning goty.

Deadlead1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

I hear ya, a new ip is always exciting, but quality should always take priority. Best game should win game of the year, not the newest. Personal GOTY atm has to be UC4. Or The Witcher 3 but I was a little late to the party on that masterpiece.

I am a simple man, I see Overwatch, I press Dislike - Someone who has fatigue of it everywhere
