I think Batman:AC might win this year. Maybe Skyrim if it reviews well, but I still feel like Batman's got it. Nintendo's Zelda game winning would shock everyone here from both the PS3 and 360 base if that happened lol. But yeah, I don't think they'd give GOTY to a game series back to back like that anyway (UC2-UC3).

Arkham City will almost certainly win imo. Although Zelda will be in the very high 90's on average I don't think it will receive as many votes as AC. Although Uncharted is clearly a great game it won't win and as much as I'd like Skyrim to win it, it most likely won't either.

Out of all the amazing games going against each other this year I think Zelda has the least chance of winning. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to say it's sh*t, I just think with all these talks about Skyrim vs Uncharted 3 vs Batman vs Portal 2 etc, Zelda will just be left in the shadows. If it was just between Skyrim and Uncharted 3 for example like they were the only two GOTY contenderrs coming out this yeah then yeah people would then throw Zelda into the mix but the point I'm trying to get across is that there are too many games going for GOTY and with Zelda having no hype towards in like every other GOTY contender it has a slim chance in my opinion...............and I know hype dosen't get a game GOTY, I'm not saying that but trust me it helps in the long run.

Skyward Sword also has huge potential: 10/10 on Game Informer and possibly 95+ MC score at the end. And as great as Skyrim may be, I feel it may get docked for story and technical issues.

In terms of offering a tight, polished package UC3, AC, and Skyward Sword seem like the top 3 contenders to me

One game people keep forgetting about is Portal 2. Yes, it came out at the beginning, but it was such a fantastic game: gameplay was great and pacing was excellent, the story and dialogue was the most well written and acted I've ever experienced this gen.

Anyways, SPIKE sucks, I wish we could get a proper award ceremony that wasn't dumbed down to the broski gamers. I'd like to see a little class and respect put towards the ceremony. Maybe then other people will take the industry more seriously.

I was really yearning for Batman: Asylum two years ago but it turns out, Uncharted 2 won (Asylum only receive studio of the year, best action game).

At that time, we don't have Skyrim, so I guess the odds for Batman: Arkham City this year might be slim. Still, its a wonderful game and I've bought it last month!

ridiculous list of voters

Dante1122564d ago

Haha, I don't think they should let console specific magazines (OXM or PSM) or sites vote.

TheBlackMask2564d ago

Your dosen't really seem fair.

For example

Lets say OXM finds Uncharted 3 amazing but votes for Batman/Skyrim because the game is MP....even though they think U3 deserves it more

Console Specific magazines could vote out of spite not what actually deserves it

DeathAvengers2564d ago


Just because you enjoy Uncharted 3 doesn't mean it deserves GoTY. There is a possibility that Batman, based on metacritic scores 95/96, will be GoTY. Also, based on the past preview reviews for Skyrim, there is a large possibility that it'll be GoTY. What you guys really should be concerned about is all the people voting, saying that since Skyrim and Zelda aren't out, they can't vote for them? So, the votes against Uncharted really won't matter, a lot of people are going to choose Uncharted, based on the fact that they've actually PLAYED the game. Pretty much everyone who has voted for skyrim is a fanboy of the series, or is afraid that the game (in their opinion) deserves GoTY but won't get it because it released later.

Just because Skyrim and zelda arn't out doesn't mean you can't vote for them, I've been to spike's website and i've seen the voting options and you can vote for it...

DeathAvengers2564d ago


I know that. What I was saying was that a lot of people are voting for the other choices with the excuse that the games aren't out. So that could be a big factor with people choosing, say uncharted over skyrim. Then, in 6 days skyrim comes out and (Maybe) they regret their decision. Their vote has already been counted and cannot be taken back. If you're going to nominate them, at least wait until they're all released and just push back the vga's date back. OR just don't nominate the games.
