I would have to say this is high up for me for GOTY contender.
There is dragons dogma, but that game is a flawed gem. Excellent game play but the graphics are so-so, dialogue so bad it's "good," story is weird and lacks substance. Still I've sunk easily over 80 hours into it.
And mass effect 3, which of course, had a pretty lackluster ending to say the least.
I haven't beat far cry 3 yet but so far this game looks to be one of the best to come out this year. --- --- Your opinion is a valid and respectable expression of your own personal thoughts. You are a winner. Way to go.
This game and Dragons Dogma both are in my top 5 favorite ever games. In a direct contest I would choose this due to more content and much more replayability IMO. Plus this is beautiful, DD was only good with effects and animations...not graphics so much. --- An amazing business opportunity for anyone! Work from home, no experience, background checks, no boss!
