So before the heavy hitters, Infamous Second Son, Dark Souls 2 and Titanfall drop, what is your game of the year so far?

Here is my top 3.

1 OlliOlli

2 South Park The Stick of Truth

3 Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

I pretty much expect my #1 and #2 to be in my top 10 come the end of the year. This looks to be yet another great year for gaming.

Obviously Dark Souls II.

I haven't played it yet but I can sense it's greatness approaching. Like an imposing army marching upon the horizon towards my location, and I stand solitary, awaiting the challenge ahead.

So far, either Danganronpa or Toukiden.

Hell...I'd even put the Left Behind dlc in there.

Lightning Returns, loving every minute of it (70 hours on day 9 first playthrough) and I can't think of anything that will replace it this year.

@Zidaneski: it's nice to hear from someone enjoying the game. I plan on picking it up once I have a 30-60 hour window without something higher on my must play lost. I also need to play through XIII-2 first....... This year is gonna be crazy.

@GoldenElementXL: FFXIII-2 I enjoyed tons as well thanks in large part to the new characters, they are some of my favorite in all of FF. I didn't get through the extra side quests though because I got frustrated trying beat insanely tough opponents in the battle arena. One of my gripes with LR is that the battle arena in the game is really lame or maybe I just haven't gotten to the true battle arena or something.

@Zidaneski: Too bad for the time limit though. I was paranoid throughout the whole playthrough because of it. Amazing battle system, but some of the worst X360/PS3 graphics i have seen in my life....

@alcapello: Exactly. We are almost a quarter through the year and some real heavy hitters are about to release. I was just curious about what other gamers thought about the games released so far. My number 1 is a Vita game. Number 2 is a PC/last gen game and number 3 is only available on Xbox One right now. And Dark Souls 2 could win some awards. The PS4 could very well run away with things by then end of the year but I was curious as to what people thought right now.

@Acez626: Forza came out last year though. Might be tough for a 2013 game to win GOTY 2014.

Toss up between Thief and Men of War: Assault Squad 2 (been playing the beta, releases March 20). Not much to write home about so far, but there are some great games coming up soon.

@GuitarSmash: Honestly, I had zero trouble managing the clock as is evident by my 70 hours and only on day 9. I guess I could understand about being paranoid but I liked the challenge it provided to be quick but efficient. I failed one of the beginning side quests horribly because I was also worried about time but it taught me to pay attention to what I was doing. I had to adapt to the gameplay design but so far its been amazing. I tried on a separate save to beat the game quickly but I died which was also a relief because now it makes the actions on my other save feel more meaningful and have purpose (if I can actually beat the final boss for real this time).

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze by far. I highly doubt anything this year's going to live up to it. It's absolute platforming perfection. It seriously nails every single aspect it can. It's as flawless as a game has ever been and should be recognized as the pinnacle of the genre. I simply cannot sing the praises of this game enough. The expert level design, the stiff challenge, the insane amount of content, and the incredible attention to detail is outstanding. It's easily one of the very best games I have ever played in my life.

I couldn't possibly give this game any lower than a 10/10 as rare as that score is with me. This might be the game that merits it the most.

Edit: Actually Batman Arkham Knight has a chance later this year. Arkham City was my game of last gen.

Titanfall, based solely on the beta. I haven't played a multiplayer FPS that's that much fun since... Reach? It's been a while.

There will be. It's called Arkham Knight.

So far, I haven't played any good games this year.

I have not bought a single game this year excluding KZ:SF which sucked HARD. DkS2 will obviously destroy the competition and the only games that stand a chance is Destiny, Dragon Age 3 and TW3.

As there really haven't been many great games released so far this year, I'd say Stick of Truth by a landslide, but it might struggle to finish top 10 for the year *shrug* who knows.

Who cares, Arkham Knight will easily take it down at the end of the year anyway.

None. Terrible year so far with nothing interesting for months. Dark Souls is over-rated, and most of the games people are listing are just niche japanese games that aren't GOTY caliber, excluding Donkey Kong.

South Park wins by default
