IYO is there any chance Resistance 3 pulls a stunner and wins consensus GOTY

IGN seems to be just gushing over it and I think Resistance 3 might manage to get 90+ in metacratic because it doesn't seem to be one of those overhyped games, and Resistance 2 seems to be considered a disappointment (though I enjoyed it). Games like Uncharted 3 would have to do a lot more than a game like Resistance 3 to blow everybody away because the bar was set really high in the 2nd one. Same goes for Arkham City.

Anyway, I think it might be a darkhorse candidate for the GOTY consideration. You'd probably want to take that with a grain of salt though because I also predicted Force Unleashed 2 would win last year after seeing some footage earlier in the year.

Not at all, unless Deus Ex sets the world on fire than Skyrim will win the majority of GOTY awards. With the abundance of GOTY awards these past few years, every game can win one

The game would have to be touched by God to destroy the Fall lineup in GOTY

No sir, not a chance. Don't get me wrong, it certainly seems to be an improvement over 2, but from what I can tell from the demo it isn't GOTY caliber.

True, I might not have the right to do it, but you definitely don't have the power to stop me.

No. Not possible with uncharted 3 skyrim or gears of war 3 coming

To be fair the demo is an old build and they're not just saying that, it really is. From what I've seen of other gameplay footage it seems to be that way.

and that's great for cheap basterds like me that always wait for the goty versions to come out.

It's definitely looking good so far, but their is a pretty strong lineup it competes with:

Uncharted 3
Dark Souls
Skyrim
Deus Ex
MW3
Battlefield 3
etc...
