I personally picked UC3 but all the games on the list are deserving of being nominated and I wouldn't be mad if any of them won it. This has been one amazing year for gamers.

WhiteLightning3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Me aswell

and for the studio I picked ND since with all the mo cap stuff it must be harder for them and the fact they picked sand for U3 since it was the hardest thing to do...least then I know their pushing themselfs.

Oh and can we please get Nolan North an award for voicing and acting out Nathan Drake, he lost last tikme to Jack Black ¬¬ <sigh>. We all love the character so much and yet I don't think he's ever won an award for it, lets not forget Emily Rose aswell.....even though she was hardly in it sadly

DasBunker3671d ago

U3 and skyrim id say deserve it equally... but theyll choose skyrim just to be impartial..

WhiteLightning3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

I think people will pick Skyrim more because of hype to be honest

slayorofgods3671d ago


Have you played Skyrim yet? Have you played any Elder Scroll game?

1. Skyrim lives up to it's hype
2. The Elder Scroll series gets hype for a reason

Personally i really think Skyrim is GOTY contender for the sheer exploration the game allows. Gamers just like to explore and find new stuff in the game that they from previous playthroughs had not experienced yet. With that said, the game is technically flawed because of all the glitches and freezes.

Uncharted 3 is the opposite; allows for zero freedom but the story is implemented in such a good way that it's a non-issue. We don't think about exploration as much in Uncharted 3 because the story is just too good. The game is technically a masterpiece and therefore it's really up to taste of genre and game style that will be the winning factor.

If you like exploration and crafting your own experience, finding items and interacting with everything in the world through your own conditions then it's really Skyrim that is better.

But if you like a technical showcase with movie like experience beyond anything else in the gaming industry and a story worthy of many more sequels, with characters that are truly lovable and set pieces that even Michael Bay couldn't think of then it's really Uncharted 3 that is better.

Personally, i can't choose between the two. Both should get an award for what they accomplish. The graphic whore inside of me screams a GOTY vote for Uncharted 3 but the explorer inside me at the same time shouts Skyrim.

Arghh! This year has been to great for me! Arghhh!!

Skyrim no doubt. GOTY if its not its pretty much a joke.

hqgamez3671d ago

Yeah, I like Skyrim, but you need to understand that everyone doesn't have the same taste in games.

StraightPath3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Everyone has different tastes and their view on game of year according to their personal view. But no one can doubt Skyrim is the most impressing game this year. Like it or not this game deserves all awards for the developers making this game . This game is absolutely on a different scale no game can match.

slayorofgods3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

U3 and Skyrim are a tough match up. Game of the year will be one of the two for sure.

Uncharted has good story telling and graphical design, no doubt Naughty Dog is one of the top game makers in this respect. Props to them.

Skyrim makes so much improvements over oblivion as far as scripting for a open world. Making a open world of this size and scope takes a lot of dedication. You may not like rpg's but no game, rock star included, has made a more dedicated open world that feels alive.

Personally, my nod for game of the year goes to Skyrim as well. But U3 does bring a challenge because Naughty Dog is a very talented game developer.

killerhog3671d ago

the favoritism in that show for views is effing ridiculous! everything was gears 3, bf3, and codmw3?? really? wheres killzone 3, resistance 3?

best shooter:
gears 3
*rage* effing really?

best online multiplayer:
gears 3
*portal* are you effing serious?

best driving game:
forza 4? i thought there was a deadline? wasnt that the reason gt5 wasnt including last year?

wow another shit vga show. this is why no one is taking the video game industry seriously. if you are going to play favoritism and unfairly exclude/include games.

Deputydon3671d ago

I'm sorry, but if anybody picks any one over Stephen Merchant from Portal 2 as best performance by a human male, they are insane.

He did a flawless performance and hit every single word perfectly. I don't think Portal 2 is goty or anything, but that man deserves an award for that spectacular performance.

My pick for GOTY is Skyrim.
And, umm, i think Red Orchestra 2 should be on the best PC game list. Its one of the best PC games released this year to be honest...

@gamer234. Yeah, those games should definitely be in there!
They're missing a lot of good games xP

slayorofgods3671d ago

Witcher 2 is the best pc game either way.

gamer2343671d ago

i couldn't see battlefield 3, kill-zone 3 and crysis 2 for best graphic category

pandehz3671d ago

Exactly mate, where are those 3.

The best have been left out.

killerhog3671d ago

at least they got: best shooter, best online, which unfairly killzone 3 and resistance 3 was excluded

I'm surprised Aaron Staton(Mad Men) didn't get nominated for his role as Cole Phelps in LA Noire.

Disagree? Kindly reply with how you would've voted differently.

(Some were tough choices; Rocksteady, and ND both worthy of SOTY)

SignifiedSix3671d ago

I agree with your list. Almost looks like mine lol.
And those who disagree don't know how to post replies.
Most likely Sony fanboys that are mad that you didn't vote for UC3 as GOTY.
Sad, sad people. :)

ExCest3671d ago
