Fact: if you don't think Far Cry 3 is GOTY, then you haven't played it!

That's not entirely true. some people will not like it because it might not fit their interests. For me personally I haven't played it because I don't have the money for it right now and I have other games on my plate that I'm working on still. So for me I can't really say that it is or that it isn't GOTY material yet. But it does look like an interesting game from what I've seen of it so far.

To be fair, I'm not at all a shooter fan and usually stick on the (J)RPG spectrum but this game is just awesome all around. It's just fun to play and despite me hating everything else Ubisoft does, I can't deny this is the best game I've played in 2012. The characters and the story are just incredible. Plus, the collectibles and skill system slightly caters to the RPG fan I am. It's just a freaking great game, period.

I was first to be skeptical of the whole "Skyrim with guns" tagline but it really is just enjoyable as hell.

Too easy
Plot sucks
Multiplayer sucks
Runs terribly on consoles
Controls are iffy and mostly non-customizable

I liked it, and gameplay-wise it was better than FC2, but if you think its GOTY then you haven't played very many good games this year. Xenoblade, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Virtue's Last Reward; all better games.

GOTY should go to Dark Souls. You might say "That was released in 2011" but I'd have to say, it's better than everything released in 2012.

I just finished it up about 10 minutes ago and it really is a fantastic game, much better than the disappointment that was Far Cry 2, but Mass Effect 3 is still my GOTY.

imo, FC2 is a better game...but since everything SUCKEDD this year, FC3 is definitely GOTY POH MY GOD, TEH OPENNESS.

..... No, having played the ever loving crap out of DS and even able to eventually 1 hour speed run the stupid thing, it wasnt GotY even when it came out :/ it was just a somewhat hard game that made combat into a monotonous *read pattern, analyze, counter* game :/

It was fun but not GotY in the slightest, it just did way too much wrong... Mainly giving you 0 feeling of getting stronger even after 100 friggen levels when the same enemy that could 2 shot you before in your level 1 gear and at level 1 can still 2 shot you 100 levels later and in end game gear >.>

You can beat dark souls in an hour? BULLS***!

FC3 is definitely fun as all hell, and I usually hate open word games.

After playing the garbage that was Far Cry 2.....I'm a little reluctant to play Far Cry 3.

I felt the same way. Far Cry 2 was horrible, but everyone said Far Cry 3 is great so I bought it. And I am not disappointed at all. Unlike FC2 the driving isn't boring, and the gameplay is great. Also, the story is awesome. Some of the best characters and voice acting I've ever seen in a game.

Definitely GOTY.
