Game of the Year

22 replies 204 views Edited Jan 30, 2013

I know it's early, but I'm already holding Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch to this honor. This is simply the best game I have played in years. While Journey was great, it was short. Other PS3 games including Uncharted 2, Valkyria Chronicles, and Heavenly Sword have been held in high regard, but this is the one game that I can really say "I'm happy I have a PS3". Not since Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King have I been able to have this much fun exploring in an RPG.

 

Now before I get the "well we still have Insert on of the following (Bioshock: Infinite, Tomb Raider, Sly Cooper, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, etc)". I know, and out of those I'm pretty pumped for The Last of Us. I even preordered that $160 Post Pandemic Edition. Though when I play Ni No Kuni, it's like a flash back to some of my favorite RPG's. It also doesn't drag behind like some other attempts have in today's genre. It's advanced the RPG series and I hope we see more of this from Level-5 in the future!

 

Thanks for reading,

-Tim

Anything but this new DmC.

 

My opinion, you can't change it.

So far, for 2013, my game of the year has been either FarCry3 or CCP's Dust Beta.

The Last of Us or Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

 

also, DmC should get BotC, Blunder of the Century.

 Pretty strong statement when you factor in Lair, Socom 4, Haze and Genji Days Of The Blade from this generation and Azurik from the original Xbox.

those were bad, but they arent DmC bad.
DmC is in a catagory of its own, its even above Superman 64.

If this is the threshold it passes, then you KNOW it's terribad.

 

I haven't played it or seen gameplay footage of it, but if it's THIS bad, then it's pretty bad. D:

theres a reason why the user review on Metacritic is a 3.9/10; and out of 800 reviews.
