Since probably everyone reading this right know is probably super pumped for this game, this game might get to be one of the best games of 2011. This game seems really great and i got a feeling 2011 will be a great year. 
 
 
So do you think Battlefield 3 will be a GOTY contender? Discuss.

Every game is a contender, until it come out and disappoints us. We know nothing about this game right now. We'll see.

#3 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

Yeah, I don't think so.
#4 Posted by NoCookiesForYou (761 posts) -

I'd really like to see Battlefield 3 succeed and blow us away, but the competition for GOTY 2011 is going to be very tight. Contender? I'd say so. Winner? Impossible to speculate at this point.

I don't think i can answer your question honestly seeing as you work for EA and have a vested interest on the publics feedback

#6 Posted by NoCookiesForYou (761 posts) -
 Oh yeah.. Uncharted 3 says hi.

Howdy.

Sorry OP. Until it is released there is no way to know if Battlefield is going to be a goty. The Witcher  is my prediction for GOTY.
Edit: I am looking forward to Battlefield 3 though. I am interested in seeing what the destruction looks like on DX 11 hardware.

Exactly.
#11 Posted by Khann (2852 posts) -

GOTY? Dunno. That really depends on what they do with the single player campaign. If I had to guess, I'd say it will be right up there for multiplayer of the year, but even that is pure speculation. 
 
I'd say it's pretty much guaranteed it will be on anybody that is in to multiplayer shooters Top-10 lists.

#12 Edited by Wuddel (2092 posts) -

A shooter and/or multiplayer top spot is quite likely. But GOTY? No way! Mass Effect 3, Batman and Uncharted 3 will duke it out I guess. Maybe Dead Space 2 is also up to the task, and LA Noire might also surprise us. I think story driven games have it much easier, but often they deserve it. Some really touch us. Thats quite a feat. 
 
Also: 2011. Fuck yeah!

#13 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

I'm not too certain it will take GOTY. But if it's an improvement from BF2, I would be outraged if it didn't grab best multiplayer at least.

Damn this year is going to be awesome. So pumped.

#16 Posted by DystopiaX (5310 posts) -

Come back when the game is out or we at least have seen some gameplay. Talk about jumping the gun.

#17 Posted by BetonneTom (113 posts) -

This makes no sense. the game is not even close to being released. i do not even think there is any gameplay footage  
 
why would you even think of game of the year?  
meaningless right?

Enjoy your low tier games. 
 
EDIT: I know this is a 2012 game. This is me giving a shit.
#20 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

Well, at least this thread shows that everyone has a different opinion.

#21 Posted by EuanDewar (4936 posts) -

Ask again in 10 - 11 months when this is actually relevant in anyway.

Who knows, it could be broke as fuck or revolutionize our society. 

#24 Posted by MikkaQ (10290 posts) -

Can't exactly make that call now, can you? There's not even gameplay footage out. 

#25 Posted by Icemael (6321 posts) -

Probably, yeah.

Fuck Mass Effect 3.
#27 Posted by Jimbo (9814 posts) -

It's a possibility, sure, which is more than can be said of most games.

#28 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5828 posts) -

Or it might suck.

#29 Posted by Vinny_Says (5709 posts) -

This thread is full of idiots, as of now the only contender is Dead Space 2 because it's the only one out.

#30 Posted by mikeeegeee (1562 posts) -

This thread reminds me of how many games are sure to be great this year. The real question for me is: what's going to come out and surprise us? Super Meat Boy and Limbo surprised the hell out of me last year.

Woah, just realized, Skyrim and ME3 come out this year, AWESOME, Im going to be indoors alot.  
 
And Im still thinking we're gonna be disappointed over BF3. No doubt it'll be at least ok, but Medal Of Honor was ok.

Either this, Batman or Uncharted for sure. 
#33 Posted by captain_clayman (3321 posts) -

most likely, i have tons of faith in DICE but...there sure are a LOT of amazing games coming out this year.

#34 Posted by FiestaUnicorn (1576 posts) -

Maybe this thread is a little early 
#35 Posted by FirePrince (1763 posts) -

You haven't even seen 1 gameplay video. 
That, and Mass Effect 3.And Dragon Age 2. 
Nope.

Now was that really necessary? Ain't it better to back up your statements before you reach extremes, bud?
#38 Posted by Geno (6477 posts) -

Dunno, probably will be a good game but I'm rooting for C2, ME3, Portal 2 and Guild Wars 2.

I literally couldn't care less about any of those games. They could never be cancelled and the franchises announced as dead and I would be just as happy as I am now. 
 
ES:V and BF3 are the games for me this year. 
 
And I'd love ES or BF3 to get GOTY, but, apparently video game reviewers hate swords and multiplayer games.
#40 Posted by Harbinger_Of_Hippos (224 posts) -

I think it definitely will be a contender. It's a big game, and looks damn good, so it probably has as good of a chance as any other. But there a shit-ton of great-looking (I don't mean graphics, when I say "___-looking", but that too, I guess) games coming out this year, so it will be a tough fight indeed.

I don't have to back up anything, these game franchises are all amazing and speak for them selves.

Well maybe you didn't understand me. I meant that it's cool everyone enjoys all these different amazing games in the first place. I just don't understand why you had to go cussing about.
#45 Posted by Wuddel (2092 posts) -

Also, just reading the Killzone 3-review, I have suspicion that the single player part will drag BF3 down. It's just something DICE is mot very good at. I bet it will end up as a Frostbite 2 technology showcase, that takes itself way to serious. Thats what happened to BF:BC2 here on GB as well.

 *AHEM*
Just joining in on the whole post-a-logo-from-another-game-coming-out-this-year action :3
#47 Edited by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

I'd say not a a chance.  There's so many amazing looking games this year that I don't believe another generic shooter deserves to even be a contender. 
 
I also think considering a hack & slash/loot grinding game like Diablo better than everything else is pretty laughable as well..  and I'm actually looking forward to that.  Come on, the gameplay isn't that deep and it certainly isn't going to have a story to rival the likes of the Witcher or ME3.  It would be a contender, if it were going to be released this year, but it doesn't instantly eliminate everything else.

#48 Posted by Zapbrader (174 posts) -

I remember when Mass Effect 2 came out last year and everyone started listing off 20 or so games that could be it for GOTY. You go back to those threads now, and maybe only 2 games at the most turned out to be legitimate contenders. 
 
Most of the games posted here could definitely turn out to be great, but maybe not GOTY material. We really have no idea how anything will turn out so lets give it some time.

I don't see the funny. Unless you didn't play the fist Witcher and don' t like awesome sequels to awesome games.
