it'll probably get a few GOTY awards but its a bit too early doncha think ?
GoW 3
Alan Wake
Halo Reach
GT5
FF XIII

All possible GOTY contenders.

Doubt it. If it does, I'll be amazed. It'll be the first FF to get GOTY.

Final Fantasy XII recieved quite a few Game of the Year awards. Mass Effect 2 will probably take quite a few. But there is 1 game that I know that will be my GoTY as they always are and it is FF13 :)

Overall GOTY awards? No, I don't recall any. I'll be amazed if it gets GOTY awards over Mass Effect 2.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

i am playing it on pc... on my aion free time.
not GOTY imo for me for now.

besides random sex scenes-



ME was a good RPG with only a few technical flaws. ME2 is an average TPS with no genius. Of course the game is not bad, it's nicely polished and smells high budget, but still, it's definitely lost its way from the first one. Despite the US praising the game because they love shooters, it's definitely not a GOTY contender for me.

About Heavy Rain and the 6/10 it got from Gamekult, that's really funny to read people claiming it doesn't count because it's a bad score. I'd trust a Gamekult review over any other website's review, they're the only gaming website I know that doesn't succumb to the call of money. They don't give good scores to games that doesn't deserve it, even if it's a blockbuster or if the editor threatens them (as is often the case, Sony's threat about HR is not an exception). Truth is, Heavy Rain is barely a game, so calling it a good game is quite a stretch. As GK concluded : "it's too slow paced for a movie, and too boring for a game". This sums up very well what the game is, an attempt to transform a movie into a game by only streching it over 10 hours and adding QTEs, which turned out to be a bad idea. Definitely no GOTY for this one either.

I think they said GameKult don't count because Metacritic doesn't include their reviews. No matter how hard you try to spin it with theories, Heavy Rain is technically a game. It's just a different type of game is all.

Fallout:New Vegas will destroy it.

So your saying Fallout: New Vegas will get 99 or 100 on metacritic, cause thats what it would have to do to "destroy" ME2.

 



In the end there will be chaos



If GOTY's were being awarded right now, then it would win for sure.

Later in the year though, it gets tight.

Halo : Reach, Last Guardian, God of War 3, Fable 3, etc.

And we can't forget the games that could be annouced at E3.



Who's the best Pac, Nas, and Big. Just leave it to that.

PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Slaughterhouse Is The Sh*t  .... NOW ........ B_E_L_I_E_V_E

First of all that is totally my opinion. Second of all i don't need a busted review system to tell me what game is better than the other.
