Mario Kart 8 has already secured itself as GOTY. Seriously considering anything else is just wishful thinking.

An 8.0 game doesn't secure anything.

Yes, everything.

Yeah.. pretty much. i doubt very much it will get GOTY. There are still better games coming out this year. I'd take Witcher 3 to be in the Top 5 at least.

Witcher 3 isn't coming out till next year.

If by the end of Beta They...

- Take off the 30fps lock for PS4 and maybe Xone (if it can handle it)

- Improve AI

- Tweak Multiplayer so it's not so repetitive and boring

- get rid of static environments

- fix exploration

and than maybe...

I can see it got for Smash or Kart. Also, Divinity is a strong contestant

Probably, especially if you're talking about GS GOTY. I mean everyone thought TLOU was going to get it with GTA V a close second, and it went to Zelda

Yes since there are better games coming out this year. Destiny doesn't look remotely interesting or fun.

Probably DS2 or some indie game.

GOTY? Nah.

Depending on how things change from Beta to the Final Release it may go from a "Good" to a "Very Good" game, but not much more than that. I think FC4 and Smash (perhaps MK8 too) are the strongest contenders for GOTY, at least from your list TC.

I think Far Cry 4 is the most likely contender for now unless Gamespot (I'm assuming we're talking about GS's GOTY) pulls another "lol look at this indie/nintendo game it's gud". It's pretty amazing that Far Cry 3 didn't already win GOTY so it increases the chances of Far Cry 4 to get it (because they don't give GotY to a franchise that has already gotten it).

LOL. I think DS2 is a front runner for GOTY atm. Divinity OS is getting amazing reviews, so I wouldn't be surprised. Also, there are more games to come we haven't played yet, such as Evolve.

The best Hack N Slash of last gen, coupled with the best Hack N slash of this Gen thus far.

Bayonetta 2.

Seriously, I would love Bayo 2 to win but its within a niche genre. Never an HnS ever won GOTY.

Dark Souls 2 is the most probable but I guess most sheep websites will give it to TitanFall

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze SHOULD take GOTY this year. A game of that caliber comes out once every decade or more. It's definitely the best platformer I've ever played in my 20+ years of gaming and platformers are my favourite genre.

A masterpiece through and through. Perfection... no if, ands, or buts.

The Hype for Destiny get's smaller every time they show it off.

No way it gets GoTY here.

Most hyped game must be GotY! Am I right?

The fact that it's a mediocre game might just hold it back a tad. I was so hyped when Destiny's gameplay was first revealed but after spending time with the Beta I can safely say my hype level is at rock bottom for the final product. Plus AC: Unity could turn out to be a fantastic game. And also Evolve, so, yeah.

You know, that demo is pretty much what the game is going to be. I found it ok but it really does lack the funny that BL2 had. It won't be wining GOTY this year thats for sure.

Nothing "sure" about that. I can see it winning multiple GOTY's

Probably not. Despite the hate it gets, if the SP campaign is half as good as I think it will be, plus all the multiplayer content, it'll be very hard to beat this year.

I have a feeling that Destiny is going to score an 8/10 here.

GS's pick could literally be anything this year.

I hope Bayonetta 2 takes everyone by surprise though. As a package it could be a 10. Would also be awesome if Divinity: Original Sin would take it as well, be a huge boost for crowd-funded games. Though, it's accessibility might be an issue.

Well, another new game could come along and turn out to be even better than Destiny and possibly win GOTY.

Yeah Halo Reach is by far the weakest Halo and Destiny looks just like Reach...bet it has that nasty blur too.

@Vatusus: You would think it would be different to being a niche title with so much violence but I suppose mass audience wants men protagoniss, Fps and guns with slow and clunky gameplay followed with QTE. Ah well, its the only title I will be buying jn Octoberand it will look quite nice between w101 and Njnja Gaiden 3.

I'm actually more up on destiny than I was before the beta.... I think they nailed the social (mmo) aspect of the game, the controls are razor sharp and there will be more than enough upgrades, planets and scenarios to keep the game fun well past the 60 dollar mark.

Civilization Beyond Earth, Mario Kart 8, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Super Smash Bros. could all potentially give it a run for its money. I think the media will just buy into the hype and give it GotY like they do with so many other games though.

I'm curious to see what Gamespot's Game of the Year will be. They've made some very curious (and in my mind, commendable) decisions for GotY the last five years or so, so it will be interesting to see what game they decide to go with this year.

THEY MADE YOU A MOD?!

Why would it be GotY? What's so great and amazing about it? It's just another shooter in a never-ending sea of shooters.

To add on to this. Activision is already planning on milking Destiny by working on Sequels instead of supporting the base game.

I wouldn't say the controls are that good. The movement system needs to be far more fluid than it is, right now it feels sluggish

@seanmcloughlin: admittedly I did up the right toggle sensitivity because I felt the default was as you said, too sluggish... once adjusted though It feels as fluid of a fps as I've played on a console. I personally can't complain.

It seems like a lesser version of PC mmos, or a gutted PVE Planetside2. Whats so revolutionary about it?
