[QUOTE="sts106mat"][QUOTE="TheEroica"][QUOTE="sts106mat"] that would account for some time then lol

Skyrim came out at a time for me where there was so much to play... i put 40 hours in and shelved it in the hopes to pick it back up this summer when things are dry. I never stopped playing a game i was that invested in but i couldnt put off the other games i had... doubt ill end up doing the dlc's but that game has some mighty long legs.

i want to get back into it again, as its winter here i am looking forward to playing it even more, i'll wither get it again soon or wait a few months for the inevitable "GOTY edition"

A Goty edition of that game will be beast.

Halo 4 or Far Cry 3- Borderlands 2 also coming close.

Borderlands 2, but fun doesn't win GOTY.

For games this year? Either "Legend of Grimrock", or "Guild Wars 2". I would go for Mass Effect 3, too, but the ending spoiled most of the game for me.

For someone to dislike something so much, you sure spend alot of time worrying about it and the people who play these types of games. :o

We recently found out he's 12, so go easy on him. There's hope for him yet to grow up... ;)

Max Payne 3.

#60 Posted by yokofox33 (30023 posts) -

Persona 4 Golden.

I loved Mass Effect 3, but the original Persona 4 is my favorite game ever, so Golden has to be at the top.

Yep, in the previous Lounge someone found his Steam account and everything. Would link you, but the Lounge is huge, too many pages to go on a search... :(

#62 Posted by RoccoHout (999 posts) -

The Walking Dead is the only game that makes 2012 matter at all. I'm suprised it got so little votes, have people even played the game?

Guild Wars 2 is also one of my favorites this year

#63 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16843 posts) -

Xenoblade, undoubtedly.

yes, it was a fantastic game, but TSWCE is a better visual novel/point and click edit: I take it you haven't played the sea will claim everything?
#68 Posted by Mrcod11 (3059 posts) -

Planetside 2 for me.

#69 Posted by jbisco25 (973 posts) -

*throws head back and laughs heartily* 1. I could have told anyone this a while ago when he stated posting more prolifically. His grammar and thought processes indicated severe immaturity. 2. The required age for someone to have access to a Gamespot account is 13. So bye bye Sniper. *waves goodbye*
#71 Posted by Crazyguy105 (9513 posts) -

yes

goty.

#72 Posted by ShadowMoses900 (17081 posts) -

It's between Mass Effect 3 and Black Ops 2.

#73 Posted by NoirLamia777 (2166 posts) -

Mass Effect 3, it's like the only game I've played from this year so far.

#74 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3098 posts) -
Just started playing Far Cry 3, about 3 hours in, and its probably gonna be my GOTY. It's so good.

World of Warcraft?

#76 Posted by TrapJak (3487 posts) -

I haven't played FC3, but out of all the main games I have played this year, TWD has my vote.

#77 Posted by darkspineslayer (19993 posts) -
Assassin's Creed 3 and Kid Icarus Uprising.
#78 Posted by The_Game21x (26342 posts) -

So far, Mass Effect 3.

F**k the haters, aside from the terrible ending (which was a bit better after the extended cut DLC), I loved that damn game.

Haven't played Far Cry 3 yet, and that's the only game left that could dethrone ME3 at this point.

I loved the first game. I came close to loving the second game (the majority of the build up was uneventful and too drawn out, also, chest-high-walls gameplay, but was fun enough). I absolutely adored the third game (especially the gameplay) until the ending. I tried SO VERY HARD to accept it when I saw it (first time was with EC DLC btw) and try not to think about how it utterly destroyed any reason for me to have made any choice throughout the series and essentially killed all shred of interest I ever had in the series and franchise. Had I not continued into the final assault on Cerberus (where I stopped playing 3 to go back and replay 2) I probably would be naming it my GOTY. I don't know why the ending upset me so much, but it did, and I find it so saddening to have happened. I loved what potential the first game opened up back in 2007 (played it summer 2008). I guess I was just expecting too much. Shame on me.

For some, yes. but not all. I like the games and love the first one, but it's also not as great as everyone makes it out to be either. It has glaring faults that some people seem to not notice

#86 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

Far Cry 3, maybe. Depends on how well it ends, and I'm hearing good things.

So far the contenders for me are Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, Borderlands 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Mass Effect 3, Journey and Spec Ops: The Line.

Black Ops II, Halo 4, Assassin's Creed III, The Walking Dead, Hotline Miami and Prototype 2 are all also damn good games, but not GOTY stuff for me (though definitely top ten I'm thinking). Plus I still need to play Dishonored and finish half of those to really make a pick.

No shiit... if me deserves hate for "bad writing" lets see some venom shot at the 99% of games that released this gen with worse writing than ME. Its not bad writing, its hating whats popular... its not a perfect game, but ive never played one that is.... for every line that you may chuckle at, there are 10 that make me love these games to my core.... if anyone wants to discuss the issues in narrative with the meriad of games that are not up to mass effect standards lets go, but if someones goal is to singlw out a franchise that hits way more than it misses, narrative wise, im not gonna entertain it.
#88 Posted by crimsonman1245 (4253 posts) -

Final Fantasy 13-2 pretty easily, i just loved the game. I would play it for 5-8 hours at a time because i couldnt put it down, whenever i had to stop playing all i could think about was getting back onto it.

That being said, i think Sleeping Dogs deserves to win GOTY.

#89 Posted by with_teeth26 (6227 posts) -

Either Max Payne 3 or Far Cry 3, need to finish the latter before I decide.

Mass Effect 3 and Dishonored were also great.

Yeah, that's really the only problem I have with the game (besides the ending)

After a bit of a slow start, I'm having more fun with this game than I've had in a long time. I didn't expect the naval battles to be so much fun. ATM I just want to raise funds to pimp out my ship and the story is quite good.

Mass Effect 3... too much right to ignore.TheEroica
Yeah agreed. An epic game!
#96 Posted by Sushiglutton (5355 posts) -
I have mostly played older gamesthis year. From this year I have completed AC3, ME3, Max Payne 3, Borderlands 2, Journey, Twisted Metal. Out of those I liked MP3 the most with AC3 second. All six were fine though.
#98 Posted by R3FURBISHED (10654 posts) -

Mass Effect 3 by a considerable margin

#99 Posted by brimmul777 (1274 posts) -

I have to go with Halo 4 or Trials:Evolution.Good Luck Microsoft.:)

It's because people say the writing is so good and the story is so good that generates the hate towards that. If no one over exaggerated the story or cliamed it was teh ebst written game (I've seen that) then it wouldn't matter. Most games have sh!tty stories, I agree with that. But it's because ME is considered great by some that it generates that type of talk. Same with the choice system, peopel keep insisting that it's great when in fact it's not.

In comparison to most games ME is actually pretty good because it keeps a consistent narrative over 3 games. But being good by default cos everything else is bad/worse does not mean it's good. it just means it's better than others. Though I guess a lot of hate some people throw at it is definitely hating what's popular. or ahting what they don't like themselves *cough*sniper*cough*, but I don't hate cos it's popular, I hate because people exaggerate some claims about the game.
