GOTY 2010 – Toughest Yet?

This year could potentially be the toughest choice for Game of the Year, with the line-up being exceptional. This of course is excellent news for us, the gamers, but what do you have your money on?

I don't really like trying to pick a GOTY I love a lot of games and its hard to pick the greatest game of the year.

Venatus-Deus3071d ago (Edited 3071d ago )

Contenders so far:

Mass Effect 2
GoW III
Mario Galaxy 2
RDR

Possible remaining unreleased contenders:

StarCraft 2
The Last Guardian
Halo Reach
GT5
LA Noire
LBP2

In all likelihood the awards from various publications/sites will be spread across a mixture of the above games.

There’s going to be no obvious winner this year unless something special happens in the next 6 months.

Best. Gaming. Year. Ever.

I doubt Star Craft 2 will get GOTY mainly because people who've played the first will feel like they all ready played the second. Nothing wrong with keeping it the same but at the same time, it's not like those next gen RTS games that made everything so much better.

I'd pick ME2 if there's not a PS3 game i can remember on top of my head. I'm not really a big fan of GOW since it's a hack and slash no skill type of game. DMC fanatic here.

If we're lucky, maybe Dead Space 2 would be a GOTY type of game.

RDR in my opinion should not be game of the year...The game is good but the graphics are nothing to shout about especially when the game is plagued with glitches....ATM it should be GOW 3 but Black ops, GT5, Medal of Honour or even Killzone(if the rumours of naughty dog leading a hand are true)

BeaArthur3071d ago

I don't like GOTY year because a lot of times the games are so different. How am I supposed to compare ME2, GoW3 and RDR (not to mention all the games that haven't been released yet, Halo: Reach and GT5) when they are all totally different games.

Trey_4_life3071d ago

GOTY is already secured for god of war 3 with heavy rain in second and mass effect 2 a distant 3rd.

BeaArthur3071d ago

Your bubbles say it all.

booni33071d ago

Bayonetta is a contender for GOTY. sorry, i know some will be offended but quality is quality, whether the lead is male or female.

tavo11173071d ago

I think the games that will be fighting for such title are: Mass Effect2, God of War3, Heavy Rain, Bayoneta, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy 2. Expecting to see Metroid Other M, Gran Turismo5, Halo Reach, Little Big Planet 2, maybe if it comes out this year The Last Guardian.

This really is the greatest year in gaming history.

Wow, you've just reminded me what an eventful and game-packed year it has been... and the year's only half over! You really couldn't ask for a better start to the year, and I'm willing to bet that the end will be just as amazing, if not more so.

Of course, with all these great games, it will be nigh impossible for any single GOTY candidate to be considered. I mean, just the fact that so many great games have released early in the year pretty much dooms them from GOTY perspective. Many gamers have short memories, and trust me, when they are caught up in the hype for all the newer releases later this year, they will forget games such as Mass Effect 2 and Heavy Rain and God of War 3. It's an unfortunate circumstance that repeatedly proves itself true year after year, and this article is an indicator of this, focusing on the future rather than what we have now.

In the end though, all that matters is that we've had an excellent start to the year, and no less.

Dont think GOW3 - its not got as much a universal appeal as other titles.

kenpachi3071d ago

funny the first 2 GOW war games got GOTY why wouldn't the third

waltercross3071d ago

one can argue because of all the other cool games coming out :P

uplank3071d ago

Yeah that was my point. Its not as universal as some of the other titles.
