    I'm not saying you have to LIKE the story, but you can't ignore how well the story is built and constructed.

    Also, lets be honest again, Uncharted is on iteration #3, not iteration #18... And actually has had alot of depth in the narrative. Putting LoZ's criticisms on the same footing as those of UC, again, is ignorant. LoZ has had as many copy-past titles as UC has had games, and this is ignoring the fact that UC's canon has legit characters whereas I would say LoZ has archetypes and exposition only.

    Resistance's problems are completely different, I (personally) believe Insomniac never had a clear vision of where that universe was going. Thats why ever game has had a completely different tone and story.

    Please maintain some perspective here...

    As for the rest of the games on the list, I think Portal 2 qualifies to be considered. I'm still undecided on B:AC, I'm not a huge Batman fan and actually found that game too 'meh' to finish. Skyrim and TSS aren't out, so its difficult for me to formulate an opinion on either... And by difficult I mean impossible.

    Please note: This is coming from somebody who is not saying UC3 should be GOTY. Its #3 on my list of the games that are currently out at best, by the end of the year it could easily be #4-6 on my list after I've sat down and reflect on the whole year.

    I loved that game, but GOTY is a big deal to me and I don't rush to give it out. I also think UC3 is (at the moment) clearly behind Human Revolution and Portal 2 as well.
    Did you quote the wrong guy or did you not read all of my responses in this thread? You seem to be agreeing with me almost 100% then making a notion that I'm comparing Uncharted to Zelda and Resistance.... Maybe I didn't make myself clear on that part? If so I can explain but anyways. I agree with you 100% and on that note I'll end this lol.

    You do make a great point. A lot of the games weren't even out during the release of this article, but that just goes to show you the fanboyism of these kind of articles. And as Rubicant said. There's no IP's in that mix. All Mainstream games. They are all sequels and games that are "expected" to do great. But yet there's no MW3. So like you said. How can anyone take it seriously? I don't. GOTY isn't a big deal to me, but playing games for 20+ years, we all know the real gems and great games never get the credit they deserve. It's a fact of life and nothing we can really do about it.

    Its not pushing it, it is a new IP...

    Keep in mind this is Spike too. After thinking about it I'm pretty sure that has a big part of it.

    I wouldn't be too distraught about the lack of a new IP, atleast there are a few innovative titles and MW3 is not on the list.

    Yeah, I did quote the wrong person.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    Zelda? A GOTY? But MW3 and BF3 aren't? I don't get it..

    Uncharted 3 will probably win it. From what I've played, it's very well done.

    Even though it wouldn't stand a snowballs chance of winning I wish Catherine would have made the list. I know the difficulty of it turned a lot people off and there weren't many (if any) huge midnight release parties for it but seeing something as different and risky as Catherine or up for top honors would have been nice.

    So is all the praise for Skyrim just people's assumptions or am I missing something? If we're doing the talking based on assumptions then I'm gonna say it should be held back because of how buggy it is.

    In my opinion, it should go to Batman: Arkham City. It's just awesome. I think Uncharted 3 would be second. It may be reversed with UC3 winning, but I wouldn't mind. Those should be top 2.

    I bet Bioshock Infinite will win most anticipated.

    I'm awaiting the day so I can hear some info on ME3. (If any). Also, I do not like any of the contenders for GOTY. Half of those games just released opposed to games like Dead Space II.

    An FPS game like Battlefield will never have the requirements to win Game of the Year.

    It's almost certain to win at least one GOTY, actually it is certain to win one.... You guys know Spike aren't the only people who do GOTY awards, right?
