Just saying.

Beyond, The Last of Us, Puppeteer, Gucamelee, GT6 coming, God of War Ascension, Ni No Kuni, Thieves in time, Dust 514,

I think one of those just might land the spot and make for a happy ending to this gen, and some seriously pissed off lemmings : ) What do you guys think?

I literally LMAO...no actually figuratively

GTA 5 is multiplat.

And that one is a HUGE contender.

So no, its not safe to make such statements.

@Giancar: hmmm idk. but we'll see. When does the GOTY get picked again?

#8 Posted by lostrib (33036 posts) -

No. Not at all. Especially when it's up against GTA V, bioshock infinite, and then upcoming next gen games Watchdogs, BF4

#9 Posted by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

Wow. What a dumb question. GTAV has this in the bank. Its a foregone conclusion at this point. There might be a few Last of Us wins since it is a new IP but the majority will be GTAV.

#10 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42578 posts) -

Exclusive? No, but a PS3 game? Yep. GTA5.

#11 Posted by chessmaster1989 (29065 posts) -

TLOU deserves the win, unfortunately GTAV will probably win.

#12 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (5747 posts) -

I think TLOU will win it

#13 Posted by John_Matherson (2031 posts) -

GTAV will only win due to popularity and scale. Reality is TLOU, Beyond, and other unique titles deserve. If GTAV wins I'll take a 2 day break from system wars. Someone quote me on that.

well that's just your opinion. I'm sure there's plenty of people who think GTA V deserving of GOTY over Beyond or TLOU, or find none of them deserving

Last of Us got an 8 so it won't win here. Guacamelee is multiplat. Thieves in Time, Dust 514 and God of War stand no chance.

Realistically, on GS at least, Beyond and Ni No Kuni are the two PS3 exclusives that could do it.

But we also have Gone Home, Grand Theft Auto 5, BioShock Infinite (although McShea's 4 likely lowers that one's chances to win it all), Metro: Last Light and others still set to release that could very easily win.

It's safer to say GOTY will not be a 360 exclusive ;)

#18 Posted by Basinboy (10976 posts) -

Depends on which reviewer you're relying on

TLOU is deserving

I can live with this :)

#21 Edited by nervmeister (15170 posts) -

@John_Matherson: Totally NOT safe to say since Bioshock Infinite and GTAV came out this year. However it does stand a reasonable chance with TLOU. And some of the others you mentioned are possible sleeper contenders.

#22 Posted by finalstar2007 (24882 posts) -

I am 95% sure a PS3 exclusive will win.. GTA5 will most likely be GOTY on a lot of other gaming website but NOT GameSpto, GamEspot GOTY's always end up going to a totally different game than most sites out there so in my opinion i can see either Puppeteer or Ni No Kuni winning on GS ( bot are PS3 exclusives ) while i think The Last of Us winning is like 90% chance while GTA5 has a 80% chance winning.

Gone Home while its a game i havent played i hear its a two hour interactive experience that has little gameplay ( surprised a lot of people want it to win because i thought everyone hated games with little gameplay and just interactive story lulz )

#23 Edited by anab0lic (271 posts) -

Super Mario 3d World could easily steal the show...lets not forget that games coming from the studio that gave us the galaxy games, which are regarded as some of the best games of all time.

Right now for me at least its between TLOU, Fire Emblem, Dota 2 and if it turns out to be as good as what we have seen so far the new Mario game will be in contention.

#24 Posted by chocolate1325 (32422 posts) -

The Last of Us will get reviewed again hopefully and that will take it.

GTA V for the win

#27 Posted by SNIPER4321 (10142 posts) -

Anything that is popular, have big amount of hype can win GOTY.

#28 Posted by casharmy (6821 posts) -

John_Matherson marked this as the best answer

I agree with this.

It was a good year that if you didn't own a PS3 you couldn't play the most high quality games of the year. If TLOU gets re-reviewed that will be a huge factor.

#29 Posted by adamosmaki (9432 posts) -

Hardly. There are a few AAA multiplats ( i would be surprised if GTA dont win goty ) also some more are coming and other systems ( except 360 ) also have AAA exclusives ( though i dont see europa universallis getting goty despite been great and getting AAA )

#30 Posted by Lumpy311 (673 posts) -

GTA V is gonna sweep the GOTY awards.

Lmao @ TLOU, shitty gameplay, good story. Deserved it's 8.

#31 Edited by Nengo_Flow (9376 posts) -

@chessmaster1989: What are you talking about? Everyone knows Beyond is the only GOTY contender, nothing else comes close.

Beyond Two Souls has GOTY on lock down.

#32 Posted by Lumpy311 (673 posts) -

@Nengo_Flow: Oh please, Gone Home probably has a better chance at winning GOTY.

#33 Posted by Giancar (19045 posts) -

Lol, you can chose the best answer just like in Yahoo.

Neat thing GS. xD

#34 Edited by foxhound_fox (87332 posts) -

I find it very amusing people still include The Last of Us in their "GOTY considerations" lists. It scored 8.0/10, no game in the history of the single-game GOTY on Gamespot ever scored below 9.0.

#35 Edited by dreamdude (4611 posts) -

GTA V came out this year, so....

"It's never happened therefore it can't happen" is a moronic argument. Not that I think it will win here, but to say it's not even a contender is silly.

except people will choose answers over fanboyish reasons on system wars.

They would have to admit that Tom McShea's reviews are irrelevant for TLOU to even be considered, tough.

Yeah, but Tom McShea isn't the only person picking the GOTY.

If the rest of the staff liked TLOU the most then it'll be GOTY

Contenders are given an "Editor's Choice" award. TLOU doesn't have one. It might win for PS3 GOTY, but it won't even be included in overall. I'd guarantee it.

Sad to say,it will be no Xbox exclusive for game of the year.There's alway's next year for the Xbox One.

Neither do I think it will win here.

But last year some people said the same about Journey. "Never in GS history a $15 2h downloadable game won GOTY" And we all know what happened.

I think you forgot CoD: Ghosts was coming out later this year.

When has a call of duty game ever won GOTY? In fact when has any FPS won a GOTY this gen?

So because it hasn't happened, it could never happen?

#48 Posted by John_Matherson (2031 posts) -

@Michael0134567: Either way it's a good point. GOTY usually goes to niche and less mainstream titles.

Modern warfare 2 won numerious GOTY awards. gametrailers give it best PC, xbox, ps3 game and GOTY for 2009. so it happened before.

GOTY always or mostly give to crap games.

GTA V isn't PS3 exclusive.
