Yeah, we are way
too early in the year to say.

My big issue with Elder Scrolls game isn't even the game itself, but the ridiculous overhyping that Bethesda always gives their games. They announced Skyrim a whole damn year before releasing it. Now they'll keep teasing their fans until their cocks fall off with excitement, and once Skyrim does get released in November (Assuming it doesn't get delayed anyway), everyone will be disappointed. This isn't because the game is bad, but because it isn't as "OMGWTFBBQHOLYSHIT" epic as they end up hyping it to be.
Sure, Bethesda isn't the one hyping it to that degree, and in a way it isn't their fault, but thats what happened to Oblivion and they still
announced a year in advance again.
Arkham City is a shoe-in for game of the year, but I'm not sure it'll get it. My actual bet rests on Mass Effect 3. My hopeful
winner is The Last Guardian.
