I bought the game a while back (on Steam) and finally started playing it last week. So far, I'm really impressed with this game. It looks great, runs well on my PC, has lots of nice little touches (hiding UI, pause during cutscenes, pausing shows whatever frame you stopped on).
I'll admit I'm not very far into the game and can't judge it as a whole. But I was wondering if we'll see Tomb Raider show up as part of Game of the Year discussions, and in what potential categories. With all the other games released this year, I'm not expecting it'll be a competitor for, say, the top 5 spots in overall GOTY. But it seems like a really solid title from Q1 that might get brought up like "Oh yeah, I forgot about Tomb Raider, did that release this year?"
(And on a GOTY side note, I'd like to see all the GOTY nominees/winners in the various categories organized into a list, sometime after all the videos are out and winners decided. I know the fun of it is listening to the guys argue the merits of various games on the podcast, and watching the bits recorded for the videos. But it'd be useful to be able to refer back to GOTY lists without having to actually watch the videos. I know there's been a few times I was curious what games were on the staff Top 10 lists from previous years, but didn't have time to dig into the videos again.)
