I may need to go change my pants now
LBP2 vs. Uncharted 3. Who wins game of the year?
That doesn't matter right now. Only the 2010 GOTY matters right now (see my thread on the MVP general board for more on that). However, let's just say that if Uncharted 3 is as good, if not better than Uncharted 2, then Uncharted 3 is likely the early nominee for next year's GOTY. Not sure about LBP2. All I know is that it, Killzone 3, and Twisted metal are early must-have games for next year.
I have GTA IV and Resident Evil 5 sitting on my shelf, only half-played because of Uncharted games.
Now I am going to have to finish my unplayed collection fast because UC3 will literally take about six months out of my gaming life, I know it. Nothing else will get played at all. Even now, the teenager always sighs when he has to constantly eject my Uncharted 2 disc to play his Fifa 11.
2011 is looking to be a killer year, though. I don't mean to compare to the other system (actually, yes, I do) but there's literally two announced exclusive games that look okay on their side. Here on the PS3, we've got tonnes of games coming. Uncharted 3 will probably take priority for me, but look at this incomplete list of titles.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Little Big Planet 2
The Last Guardian
Rachet and Clank
Heroes on the Move (better title)
Maybe Final Fantasy Vs
There's probably some good unannounced games too, and PSN titles are getting better and better.
And then on the hardware front...
A PS Phone and a PSP2??????
What are Sony trying to do to my finances!?
The games that are in bold are day one purchases for me, and I'll seriously consider buying anything else on that list if the games are good. I haven't even mentioned multiplatform titles.
If the PS Phone is good enough and has PSN chat then I'll be buying that. There's a rumour that the PSP2 will play games that look just as good as early PS3 games... so that's on my shopping list too. Not to mention the 3DTV that I want to buy for Uncharted 3.
Basically, come Christmas 2011, I will be a much poorer man than I am now. No vacation next year then Best start working overtime through Christmas
I'm really excited as is everyone else! I love that it's taking the desert theme, I think I'm going to watch Sahara today now (great Uncharted-like film set in, yeah, the Sahara)
One question though. Sony sent out that invite saying "PS3 Reveal December 12th, day after VGA." Well, now it can't be Uncharted 3 because that's already revealed. And it can't be Uncharted 3 gameplay because that's being revealed on some late night show Monday December 13th. What more does Sony have instore for us then?
