ME3 and AC3 are the most mainstream outta those so it'd probably be one of them

Using logic the answer is Mass Effect 3.

Probably The Walking Dead. None of the other games have as much praise universally than that series. Im still waiting on the disc version in Dec before i pick it up though.

Why not? It's a fantastic game with a disappointing ending, like most of the games this year.

Either ME3 or TWD, only games that actually deserve it.

The fact Assassin's Creed III is considered just hurts me inside.

Of those listed, I'd go with Journey or The Walking Dead, the only games to pursue mechanics or attributes that differentiate themselves from all other games in the industry. I wouldn't mind much if Dishonored won.

Technically, the popular one is Journey, with 37% of the votes, followed by The Walking Dead with 26% of the votes..

Journey comes the closest though for being original.

Admittedly the only one I've played is The Walking Dead. I'd vote for that, though. It's a wholly engaging game, and a shining example of a story in a video game that isn't terrible.

It's good for 2 or 3 really short playthroughs, but other than that it quickly looses its replay value.

Dang, for once I thought I agreed with him, but your right, he wouldn't agree with laughing at the VGAs if Halo 4 was up for GotY.

If Journey wins I'll be very disappointed. Spike TV will then actually have some credibility if that happens, and they're a much better laughing stock when they choose the most predictable, unworthy games on the shelves.

Do you think Journey actually deserves it? or just deserves it based on the other 4 games being its competition?

I think Journey deserves it above all the others.

I think Journey deserves it above all the others.

Hmmm, personally out of that group the only game I'd pick over it is Dishonored as that's more my cup of tea, and I haven't played The Walking Dead adventure game(which now I would want to given that the 3rd season of that show is actually not hot garbage like the first 2 seasons). Can't comment on Xcom yet as far as the rest of the years lineup goes.

But as it stands I thought Journey was cool. It's one of the few times I've ever cared about the visual side of the game, and it understand the concept of using its visuals and scenery to set a tone of an emotional response. Which sure is a lot of basic stuff(and nowhere near some of the hyperbole gamertwits throw at it sometimes like "it's like controlling a poem") but it was certainly a far more interesting game than

-More f*cking Assassins Creed
-More f*cking Halo
-Mass Effect 3

for my money.

Plus the online stuff was unique, and kind of fun. I was totally surprised how buddy/buddy you could get with the other person without communicating all that much, and was really shocked when I found out it wasn't the same person. Game is very minimalistic, but I like that it messes with the idea of what a game is.

You would think as obsessed as some of the people on this forum are about "gaming is art", "games need to try new things", or "games need to be compelling on an emotional level" and all that jazz that a game like Journey would get some props for what it attempts instead of the countless action games that half ass it.
