    Game of the year right here. By a country mile.

    • xMCXx

      Year’s still young.
      Let’s not count our chickens before they hatch. ;)

      • Dean Winchester

        Youre right. Beyond Two Souls, God of War Ascension, Bioshock infinate, and Tomb Raider havent come out yet ;)

        • Let’s not forget the already-released Ni no Kuni and the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V!

          GOTY all depends on your personal tastes, really. (I actually haven’t played NnK yet [massive backlog], but I’ve heard it’s something of an amazement.)

          • Dean Winchester

            Ni No Kuni IS my personal GotY Sal.
            Wonderful game.
            It shouldnt be missed!

          • xMCXx

            Ni No Kuni is a great game if you’re into JRPGs.
            Still prefer Dragon Quest 8 over it, though.

            • shogunknight

              From the games mentioned here, it seems GTAV will be the clear winner. For now my option would be Last of Us, Ni no kuni or Beyond

              • Dean Winchester

                I have never understood the draw of GTA games or pretty much any game R* has ever produced honestly.
                They’re like the tarintino of gaming and from me that is not a compliment.
                Overrated hacks of their industries.

          • Ni No Kuni is a spectacle that needs to be at the VGA’s

            • Dean Winchester

              Sadly not enough pew pew pew for that.

      While I hate to count my chickens before they hatch, my hype for this game…it’s over 9000. I really love the game play elements and what it took for them to make it. I feel like this is an example of using modern techniques and such.

      • Dean Winchester

        No one is better at developing amazing gaming experiences than Naughty Dog.
        Cant wait to play this masterpiece.

        • Kurisu Makise

          Agreed! I also like that Naughty Dog clearly got BETTER over time. I mean the Crash games were wonderful but I felt them getting better with each game and then CTR was just…beautiful, let me just throw it out there I liked it more than Mario Kart 64. Then along came Jak with even better narrative and Uncharted in this gen, I can’t praise Naughty Dog more.

          • Dean Winchester

            CTR is the best cart racer ever made. I felt that way before I even knew who ND was!

            • Kurisu Makise

              So true. I loved the plaza element (where you could drive to the different races) competing for Platinums and stuff, good times. Oh and best of all, I liked that the heavy racers were actually useful. In Mario Kart it always feels detrimental to use the heavy racers, well except for Rosaline, she’s perfect ;D

              • Dean Winchester

                I’m pretty much sold on any game with “fun” boss fights and I have Mega Man 2 to thank for that.
                I will fall in love with any game that has great bosses.
                CTR was the first time a kart racer did bosses at least in my experience, and they were an absolute blast. All the secret hidden paths and trophys to collect fueled my addiction to that game and I have yet to play another kart racer that is on par.
                I think the two Sonic and Allstar Racing gamescome close to capturing some of that magic but theyll never be able to top CTR.
                Speaking of fun bosses….Castlevania Lords of Shadow is kickin my arse but I am really diggin it.
                The new GoW:A is gonna be unbelievable based on the two different single player demo’s I have.

                How did Sony Santa Monica top GoW3? No clue but they absolutely have outdone themselves.

                Anyhoo….I know Im all over the place on thiscomment as I am up way too late off a 4 hour binge of Lords of Shadow.
                Need sleep. Need zzzzzzzzzz

                • Kurisu Makise

                  Totally wasting my + membership, haven’t even played the Single Player Betas @[email protected] I did play the Multiplayer Beta for Ascension. If they managed to surpass GoW3 then that’s pretty amazing. I also love a good boss fight and when the game is dedicated to them like Shadow of the Colossus, that just makes it even better.

                  • Dean Winchester

                    Ahhhhh yes. Shadow……a true masterpiece.
                    That game is amazeballs.

                    • Kurisu Makise

                      Dying to play the HD version on PS3 alas, backlog.
