  • The Last of Us (PS3)
  • Bioshock Infinite (X60/PS3/PC)
  • Grand Theft Auto V (X360/PS3)
  • Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)
  • Tomb Raider (X360/PS3/PC)

Interesting mix, actually. Also, pretty hilarious that no Xbox One or PS4 games were nominated.

I expect GTA V to take it, honestly, though VGAs did surprise us last year.

My moneys on GTA.

#4 Posted by freedomfreak (41503 posts) -

God Raider.

#5 Posted by Suppaman100 (4027 posts) -

TLOU or GTA V.

Would be surprised if another game would win GOTY.

That list is nice though, much better than last year.

How is it at all hilarious that no XBO or PS4 games were nominated?

#8 Edited by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

Surprising that they put Mario up. 2010 they didn't put Galaxy 2 up because it wasn't apart of their audience or whatever. VGAs suck and are only exciting for the reveals. Just don't watch the show.

#9 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21991 posts) -

Last Of Us and GTA V will win most awards of course.

#10 Posted by stereointegrity (10742 posts) -

#12 Posted by Eddie-Vedder (7800 posts) -

1st. The Last of Us

2nd. Bioshock Infinite

3rd. Gran Theft Auto 5

3 of the best games this gen imo.

#13 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (14715 posts) -

What The Hell ! :o

Wheres Batman and Splintercell ?

Is this Spike's VGA's ?

BAFTA wouldn't do this in November.

#14 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (14715 posts) -

and I hope Mario wins. Its the only game in that list I have not played.

#15 Edited by lostrib (39271 posts) -

I suspect the "next gen" games came out too late to be considered

#21 Posted by bobbetybob (19296 posts) -

3D World is where it's at, you ready for that 10/10 at Gamespot, I can feel it in my bonesssrss.

#22 Edited by madsnakehhh (14627 posts) -

Super Mario 3D Worlds? why? i mean i have no doubt it will be amazing and one of the best games this year, but how can it be nominated when it hasn't been released?

Oh well, VGA's...lol.

#23 Edited by Clock-w0rk (3238 posts) -

The Last of Us GOTY awarded by Antonio Banderas.

Also why the fuck is Tomb Raider there?

@charizard1605: Link?

#25 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (14715 posts) -

@ lostrib

Oh okay. I'm not upset anymore, :D.

If Mario got considered, then every single PS4 and Xbox One game is also eligible. That excuse doesn't work.

Oh yeah, totally forgot about it lol.

Here.

#27 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11962 posts) -

I think TLOU has got this for sure.

Such a GOAT of all time

#28 Posted by ghostwarrior786 (5533 posts) -

@charizard1605: but all x1 and ps4 games are sh%t, you dont even have to play them to know that. the right games got nominated.

That is what I was implying, yes.

Hi, I'm stupid and run into brick walls everyday. The VGA's are legit.

#31 Edited by ni6htmare01 (1030 posts) -

Is between GTA or TLOU

#32 Posted by treedoor (7648 posts) -

VGAs

#33 Posted by SakusEnvoy (4334 posts) -

Ehhh, no one expects a new console to deliver a world-class game at launch. The last time that happened was with the Wii and Zelda Twilight Princess, which was only because Nintendo delayed it to cross-release it on Wii and then Gamecube a month later.

It's at the end of the year *after* that we expect a GOTY nominee to emerge. A "Gears of War", if you will, a game that highlights what next-gen gaming is all about.

Obviously, if such a game hasn't emerged by November of next year for either the One or PS4 that would be cause for disappointment.

I put more stock in the Vidya Gaem Awards than the Video Game Awards, which I think is a pretty reasonable gauge for how much I value this cancerous abomination that Spike is still growing.

#35 Edited by Telekill (4814 posts) -

The Last of Us got my GOTY vote but Tomb Raider took a couple more for than I would have guessed. It's been a great year for gamers.

#36 Posted by g0ddyX (3914 posts) -

How can anyone expect PS4 and X1 games to be considered, the consoles are not even out yet properly?
GTA5 and TLOU and Bioshock have this in the bag as they have done in other Game of the Year awards.

Golden Joystick Awards: GTA 5 gets Game of The Year, The Last of Us wins three awards

#37 Edited by Krelian-co (11729 posts) -

to be expected, agree with the list

#38 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9992 posts) -

Where do i vote?

I normally dont care, but this time around the is a gem in there that deserves to shine, even at a stupid event like the VGAs.

Im obviously talking about TLoU

#40 Edited by seanmcloughlin (38217 posts) -

The Last of Us got my vote.

#43 Edited by juarbles (801 posts) -

And like usual no Xbox game since the thing is not even a proper gaming console.

#45 Posted by Slashkice (13343 posts) -

The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V deserve to do a clean sweep of the awards. I'm rooting for the former to take GOTY.

Bingo!

Also Troy Baker better win as Joel. Dude knocked that out of the park, in fact this is probably his best year in gaming

#47 Posted by Zassimick (6791 posts) -

Played all of them except Super Mario 3D World. I'd vote The Last of Us, but Super Mario 3D World has an opportunity to take it I'd wager.

#48 Edited by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

I haven't played Mario but I'll still vote Last of Us. I won't play Mario till around Christmas time, most likely, so there is no point waiting.

#49 Posted by Big_Pecks (5431 posts) -

Nearly every category is GTAV vs BioShock Infinite vs The Last of Us.
