    I'm think LittleBigPlanet because of the cute factor, and the pure fun of gameplay!

    Double post?

    I can imagine something with history getting this year's 2008, something like Fallout 3.

    Personally I'd give it to Smash Bros Brawl. I've still to play any game that's pulled me away from that for more than a day, on any system.

    MGS4 or GTA4 will get it, they both got a lot of perfect scores from most respectable review places rather than just the "offical" magazines. But GOTY choices are picked by people with amnesia, so if the game didnt come out in the fall then they wont remember it, so their summer releases will really hurt their chances.

    Well if Gears 2 isn't as repetitive, maybe that. I probably think LBP though. Just cuz.

    WOW!!, really? I found that after the initial 10-15 hours of play the game gets boring and repetitive, maybe it was just me?

    That's ok I find it very hard to play most modern games. I normally give up after a few hours let alone 10-15 :D Brawl is probably the only console game that I've stuck to so far this gen. Last gen I was glued to Burnout 3, GTA 3:VC and SA, Metroid Prime 1 and Melee. Barring Brawl I've been unimpressed with all their sequels on current gen systems.

    Well, either LBP or Mirror's Edge will win for innovation. Overall GOTY? Not sure.

    LBP for me, of the games I've played. It was SOO different from anything else. The community focus is great!


    I can see GeOW2 getting some love. MGS4 could see love, and Fallout 3(but I've yet to play any of those, so take thats for what its worth)

    Whoever spent the MOST on advertising ALWAYS wins.

    No kidding...
    I would recommend LBP, but by now i'm probably starting to sound like a broken record.

    MGS4. Not only is it a great game, but the "last hurrah" for Snake. LBP definitely gets most innovative game and GOTY runner up.

    *Edit - Haven't played GOW2 yet, I need a cortisone shot in my left hand. :(

    I have a few games of the year, i'd struggle to pick just one.

    The creative streak in me loves...

    LittleBigPlanet
    Banjo Kazooie : Nuts & Bolts
    Viva Pinata (DS)
    Viva Pinata : Trouble in Paradise (360)


    The child in me (not in a Micheal Jackson way) loves...

    Lego Batman & Lego Indiana Jones


    The boy racer in me loves...

    Wipeout HD
    GRID
    PURE


    The video game killer in me loves...

    MGS4
    Fallout 3
    Far Cry 2




    ...........
    and I still have plenty of games yet to play before the years out
    including Mirrors Edge (great demo), Prince of Persia, Resistance 2 etc...

    Good year for gaming overall I think.

    Heres the table:

    MGS4
    LBP
    Gears 2
    Fallout 3
    GTA4


    I guarantee they won't pick an exclusive(even if it deserves it like MGS4) because all it will do is piss off fanboys from each side.

    My opinion is Dead Space.

    If GoW2 wins then we all know its rigged. It will be nominated but it doesnt have a chance against LBP/GTA4/MGS4.

    Yea, be damned if they don't agree with what you think constitutes as GotY!


    But I honestly believe GTA4 will have it hook(er) line and sinker. Granted I hate the game and hope the next GTA's will have a little more humour and be fun again.

    I think you've got a point here, although (like already stated) that a single platform idea would be bad (I'm not too sure about that though, because most of the superb games this year are only for 1 platform)

    Having now grown utterly addicted to LBP's create mode, i'm going have to say it's probably one of the greatest games I've ever had the privilege of playing.

    Stephen Fry Rocks.... just wish he could comment on my levels :D

    This is almost exactly what I came into this thread to write. Dead Space was mind blowing. I just started FO3 and GOW2. GTA 4 was nothing special, but will get a lot of acclaim because of the big name and advertising. I don't have a PS3, so I can't comment on MGS4 and LBP, but they both look really good.

    I'm gunna say GTA wins GOTY, but not because it deserves it...

    I think that you're right, there's going to be a lot of choked games out there at the announce of that.
