Batman Arkham City: Review is perfect 10, but G.O.T.Y material is questionable

Product-Reviews writes: As good as Arkham City inevitably is, do you think it is worthy of an early G.O.T.Y tagline already? Are critics starting to get a bit carried away with the whole ‘G.O.T.Y’ moniker, as the title is seen as one of the most prestigious out there, yet nobody has had a chance to play it yet.

Questionable because the GOTY title will be s head to head fight with Skyrim and Zelda Skyward Sword.

Skyrim I can agree with, but Zelda will be more difficult being on just the one platform.. be interesting to see what happens though.. my bet is on Skyrim.

Uncharted and LittleBigPlanet have won Game of the Year so being on one platform means nothing.

It's weird but I'm going to play the big games this holiday first and then see which ones I like the best. Portal 2 is my favorite game so far this year but that'll probably change with all the games coming out.

Batman only has two reviews and they're saying GOTY contender is questionable. That makes no sense since it's only two reviews and both are perfect anyway.

Psychonaughty2653d ago

It's not because Skyward Sword isn't multiplat that it will struggle to get GOTY but because it's on that console that no one plays, what's it called.... oh yeah the wii!

Gave mine away years ago but as much as I love Zelda games I won't re-buy one just for one game (as most won't) and for that reason it will receive much less build up and buzz in the industry.

I think it will be between Skyrim and Uncharted 3

Even though it looks good, Zelda hasn't had the hype around it compared to the other GOTY contenders............I know I know it's not about "hype" it's about the game but when people are voting for there GOTY they'll pick the one that's been amazing and eye catching...Zelda unfortunately hasn't had any really BIG eye catching moments, the most I see of Zelda is when I read my ONM or the few articles that pop up here and there on this site.

why do people always want to chose between 2 games? there usually are at least 4 nominees, and every game we have been talking about deserve of spot as nominee.

TrevorPhillips2653d ago

There are a lot of good games that can win GOTY.

- Batman AC
- Skyrim
- Uncharted 3
- BF3

and more

milohighclub2653d ago

lol, who'd of thought a game based on a comic license would ever be a contender. well done rocksteady!!! now hit me with a brilliant superman game n im happy.

omi25p2652d ago

Batman works because of its Dark theme and humor and the fact batman can die.

In a superman game either everyone will have to have cryptonight or he would be invincible. Which would suck imo

grailly2653d ago

I'm impressed I see nobody talking about gears, it is one the games this year that has the most perfect/very high scores if not the most. I personally thought those scores weren't deserved (still a very good game) and kept it for myself, but I'm starting to think it's the general consensus?

elshadi2653d ago

no it's not
Portal 2 is 95% Metascore
LBP2 has the same metascore of gears 3
and there is darksouls too

grailly2653d ago

is the second line onwards of your reply directed to me? I don't get it

omi25p2652d ago

Batman AC
Uncharted 3
Gears of War 3
Portal 2

Who cares if its considered "GOTY" by some website or magazine, its still an awesome game.

Micro_Sony2653d ago (Edited 2653d ago )

Dude can I borrow your time machine? Cause you know I want to plat Batman AC like you did and see if its really awesome.

Finger-Eater2653d ago

Oh dont be a smart ass now, its not going to be bad.

milohighclub2653d ago

its gonna be pretty awesome and we all know it, got to play five mins of it and it feels the same as batman:aa. i know 5 mins aint long but its enough to get a feel for the gameplay and the mechanics are solid.

camel_toad2653d ago

I think Batman, Uncharted, Zelda and Skyrim are most likely all contenders for GOTY but Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3? No way.

cr33ping_death2653d ago

not game of the year??? so.... give me my copy.
