What game in your opinion deserves GOTY?

Post by Ceeg » Sun Nov 20, 2005 8:39 pm

I think Star Wars Battlefront 2 does, no game this whole year has hooked me as much as SWBF2, there so much to do, the levels look awesome, the characters look awesome, and the space battle owns on so many levels. And online is awesome to theres never any lag.

IMO SWBF2 deserves GOTY more than any game.

Resident Evil 4
splinter Cell Chaos Theory
Lumines
Burnout Revenge
Indigo Prophecy

I can't pick one, so theres my list of contenders. I'd also like to see how some of my anticipated Xbox 360 games turn out. Here's hoping PDZ blows me away

Nothing this year, really. I guess if I had to pick one, I'd go for Resident Evil 4 (I thought it came out in late 2004 though...).

I really liked Indigo Prophecy (if not for a few control quirks) so right now thats probably my GOTY

The problem is that the year isn't over yet so I have to play some more games first before I can truly decide.

Games I need to play by years end:

Resident Evil 4
God of War
Call of Duty 2
Psychonauts
Mario Kart DS
Animal Crossing DS
Advance Wars DS
Perfect Dark Zero (in the off chance its actually good)
Half Life 2
Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time
Shadow of the Collosus**
Condemned
Soul Calibur 3
Tekken 5
Dragon Quest VIII*

This list of games makes me mad that I wasted my whole summer playing WOW for 12 hours a day.

*Bought it last week played through the Final Fantasy demo and havent touched it since (because its 100 hours long so Im waiting till after I beat my 360 games)

**just rented friday and haven't touched yet and wont till after I beat the 360 games...

the only console game from this year i got and played is jade empire, which deserves it imho, great game, but that pretty much all i can nominate on the console front

on the PC front, id say BF2 deserves it, sure it could have been done better, but its a great game none the less, id also like to say Quake 4, but it just isnt that good

I think RE4 is good enough for the title, but how has no one mentioned Civ4 yet?

I would have to say Shadow of the Colossus.

Not only is it a good game, a beautiful game, but it challenges you to think on wholly new moral levels for a game.

Nothing really. I think this has been a really bland year for gaming. The only game I was truly looking forward to was RE4, and I was left dissapointed with it.

Because this topic is a month too early to have any real merit.

Resident Evil 4
Half Life 2 for xbox is the best game I have played this year, but its not really a *new* game now is it.

but then again there is always "Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge"

I dunno. I thought it was a pretty weak year...but of the games that I played that came out this year...I probably enjoyed God of War the most. I dunno if GoW deserves the "GOTY" label...but...it's easy to be a winner when there's little to no competition. I wish I had a DS, because if I'd played the new Castlevania on DS, I might say that would be my choice. Oh well.

A few people in the gaming media gave the nod for GOTY to RE4 waaay back in January when it launched on the Cube. I wasnt skeptical in the least, odd thing considering the year just began :lol: But to this day I still have to go with RE4 on the GC, It was and still is one of the most polished games I have played on a console in terms of visuals, audio, and controls. I cant get over how snappy and responsive the controls are, especially considering this is an RE game with a GC controller. Brilliant work Capcom.
