GOTY weak this year?

#1oasisbeyondPosted 11/22/2012 7:13:11 PM
It seems this fall, there's been very good games, but nothing amazing like we see every year.
So far I think...

Borderlands 2
Halo 4
Blops 2
Hitman Absolution
Far Cry 3
Assassins Creed 3
Journey
Max Payne 3
Mas Effect 3
Dishonored
NSMB2
Forza Horizon
are the contenders.

Me3 is probably gonna get the most votes overall, but the rest seem very good but nothing amazing.
This seems like the end of a gen, like they are saving amazing stuff for launch of the next systems or something. I can't talk much about ME3 because I rented the ps3 version and that game had so much issues that I couldn't play / watch it for more then 5 minutes.

So far for me Journey will win arcade / psn goty.
But for big game... I have no clue, but so far I'm going with ME3 cuz the rest seems very good but not GOTY material.

We all know GOTY doesn't really exist, but there's always a few games that stand out from the rest... What your favorite games this year?
TOP 3...

None of those strike you as amazing?

Have you ever had a turkeyburger? Is that a fried turkey leg wrapped inside a burger? Because if so, then yes. Delicious.

Nope, none of those are amazing for me.
Skyrim, Dark Souls... Last year... Now those were must buys. Very good games though.
They just don't seem like AAA games, but AA+ :)

Although I have a feeling Halo 4 will get a lot of GOTY considering people seem to love the single player too. I have yet to play it... It's been a fall of a lot of soldi games, but nothing stands out as a 60$ must buy. imo of course. But, I'm picky.

The Walking Dead
Halo 4
Borderlands 2
Assassins Creed 3

those 4 alone make this year incredible. All easily worth 60.

Mass Effect 3, Assassins Creed 3 or The Walking Dead.

My personal choice is Mass Effect 3 and I also see it getting many awards from various sites.

The Walking Dead deserves every commendation. It was truly an experience that shouldn't be missed. The last episode had me bawling, I've never played a game that made me feel so connected to the characters
