Going up against:
- Bioshock Infinite
- Fire Emblem: Awakening
- Ni No Kuni
I really doubt it. I have yet to play it, but this year had some killer releases.
Ni No Kuni is nothing but an archaic JRPG with nice art. :/
Son, that is the biggest lie I have seen on Gamespot. Ni No Kuni is easily the best JRPG this gen 9/10 for good reason.
It was rated an 8.0, AA. And other titles have been rated 9.0 AAA in the same year. They won't put it in the running because it will make them look uncredible as a review source and incompetent as professional reviewers.
If GS was to allow TLOU become the GOTY they would become a laughing stock as a review source because it would mean they have no clear or logical method of how they validate scores.
8.0 < 9.0 but still 8.0 GOTY > 9.0?
I don't think GS will do that to themselves even if they believe TLOU deserves it.

@casharmy: Why would it make them look less credible when they believe it was a great game? Game of the year is debated by the collection of GS editors; not just the reviewer. Was GS unprofessional when SMG2 didn't win GOTY even though it scored a prime 10?
I actually think it's the only way GS could bring themselves back to a creditable status.
Right now they look like shock-reviewers for extra traffic.
Except they've given GOTY to games scoring lower than 9.5 and 10 in years where other games did so I don't see how this is any different. It's pretty common knowledge that GOTY is based on a sites overall opinion so of course it can differ to a single persons review.
I think TLOU will win. Although I was playing Beyond 2 souls with a friend, it is pretty intense so far. I have been playing as Aiden and I think I'm getting more out of it than my friend playing as Jodie. I feel scared at parts that my friend isn't since I worry about Jodie more since I can't directly control her.
"So far" Its between GTAV, TLOU and Beyond.
I'd give it to TLOU "now" but since GTAV and Beyond are 9.0 on GS, I think they will give it to GTAV cuz it's hard to disagree with GTAV when it comes to discussions about GOTY, on the other hand, Beyond would have a hard time to convince everyone in GS since it has mixed opinions.
But Im gonna wait to play the next-gen games to decide the GOTY for this year.

Im 95% sure a PS3 exclusive will win GOTY on GS but the main question is which game? PS3 had a lot of Quality releases this year ( lulz nogames360 nothing as always )
PS3 this year:
- Beyond Two Souls AAAE
- Puppeteer AAAE
- Ni No Kuni AAAE
- Last of Us AAE
- Disgaea D2 AAE
There is still Ratchet and Clank Into Nexus and GT6

I just love Quantic Dream's games. I just finished Beyond: Two Souls, and I can safely say that I like it even more than The Last of Us. That's just me though. I hope Sony buys Quantic Dream.
I hope MS does just to see you change your stance. I liked IP and Heavy Rain, but I have never and will never pay full retail for one their games. Not enough replay value for $60 imo.
