If The Last of Us ends up being an impressive piece of software then I can imagine it standing up against the best of contenders this year. At this point however it's all merely speculation. When paired with multiplayer, the Uncharted series fared worse in the end compared to previous titles from Naughty Dog. I can only imagine a similar fate would be bestowed upon this next entry in their arsenal.
Other titles to consider this year would also consist of everything from Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch to Beyond: Two Souls. Heavy Rain certainly made an impression back in 2010. Could the same be said about Quantic Dream's upcoming 'venture?

Bioshock, Tomb Raider, GTA 5, and GOW: Ascension are big contenders, but im 100% sure that tlou would make its own mark.
God of War Ascension? I really doubt it,from what I read the gameplay is amazing and multiplayer,but the story lacked while Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider has amazing gameplay,storyline,and multiplayer (Tomb Raider).

GOTY for this year... I'm pretty confident wont be TLoU.
GTA 5 / Beyond / Tomb Raider or some downloadable like last year.
The reasons why I say that is.
GTA 5. It's GTA.. The last one was a well written masterpiece for the most part. Only let down was it's controls, we'll see how that one goes this time, if they nail the controls with a story it will be unreal.
Beyond.. It's Quantic Dream, it will be great, I have 100% faith in them. Yeah my pessimistic view goes away whenever I think of Quantic Dream or David Cage. Every game they have done has been absolute perfection.
Tomb Raider kinda shocked me with how good it was. I was expecting the whole game would be centered around multiplayer. In one way it's positive it wasn't it had a great story, in another way it kinda wasn't positive because it has zero replay value.
ND have to re-establish themselves as good developers after Uncharted 3. GOTY is asking a bit too much after that mess of a game.
But if GOW wins anything. That is it, I will quit gaming since people have no idea what a good game is. That game is without any doubt in my mind the worst video game series I've ever seen. It makes me want to play Terminator Salvation.. Which actually is vastly superior to GOW. Then again.. So was Big Rigs for the PC xD.. Okay maybe thats too far.
