Keep in mind Reviewers who voted have played all the games this year(including zelda/assassins/skyrim/Mw3 etc..)

- Skyrim
- Batman
- Portal 2
- Uncharted 3
- Zelda SS

Seems about right.

Games that aren't even out yet shouldn't be on the list.

And where's Deus Ex HR?
#3XShadowStrike99Posted 11/3/2011 1:38:06 PM
Wow, I'm actually surprised that BF3/MW3 aren't on the list.

Also, no Deus Ex Forza 4, or Dark Souls? Joke list.

The list is fine. Giving the general public the ability to vote on games that aren't even out is not.

Dues Ex? people can't be serious. This was an average at best game overrated for giving life back to near dead genre. Has no place on this list. MW3 and BF3 have no place on any GOTY list for simply doing NOTHING new

No Xenoblade and Dark Souls. And the lackluster Portal 2... I knew they were a joke, but they didn't have to make it so obvious -__-

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Deus Ex is the only notable exception. But it looks like a good list. I haven't played some of the games but I imagine they're pretty great.

Xenoblade only came out in 1 region it wasn't eligible. Spike is NOrth American based.

DS is fantastic but obviously isn't for everyone. It's has Polarized views.

I think those 5 are respectable candidates. Of course your'e personal GOTY would be different but generally it has the big games. BF3/MW3? Too MP focused and getting stale. All the above games deliver great SP experiences.

Xenoblade will be easily the most overlooked GOTY worthy game this year. Most people don't even know what it is and it's entirely NOA's fault

Also keep in mind that reviewers rarely actually play the game for more than a few hours.

Portal 2 is not a respectable candidate. It's a good game, but that's where it ends. It's rather short and doesn't have much replay value either. And Skyward Sword, while most certainly GotY material, isn't out yet.
