I know the year isn't done yet and there are still some important games that have yet to come out. But, with 2013 looming, so are GOTY discussions. So when you look back on the year, what game(s) do you expect to be overlooked for GOTY considerations? I don't necessarily mean the games that should win top honors but more games that should at least be considered for a top 10 nomination. I also don't necessarily mean Giantbomb's top 10 but any top 10 GOTY list in general.
The one that I even forgot when I was thinking about my own list was Dear Esther. I totally get why someone would not put this game on their list. People who get all worked up about semantics and labels might even argue that it isn't a 'game' because it could be argued that it is only slightly more interactive then turning the pages of a book. BUT, I think the game's story and the way the story is delivered makes Dear Esther one of the most unique games I've ever played let alone the most unique game I've played all year. BUT, it is really short, barely interactive, came out in February making it easy to forget, and I imagine is only really liked by certain people who are intrigued by the story. BUT, I think it is an important enough game that it should be, at the very least, considered for a top 10 GOTY list.
