It's a tough question, to be sure. What will win our coveted Game of the Year Award when all is said and done in 2010?
Well, although Gran Turismo 5 put up a good fight, the majority believe we'll give our highest honor to the unbelievable God of War III . It's not a bad pick, either, as it certainly holds the highest review score for the year thus far, and only GT5 has a realistic shot of equaling or surpassing that number, right? Well, we have high hopes for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood , too, don't forget… Behind GT5 was Red Dead Redemption , Rockstar's awesome GTA-in-the-Wild-West blockbuster that we just loved. Lagging behind in fourth but still making a solid showing was Quantic Dream's evolutionary Heavy Rain , which, at the very least, deserves to be nominated. Of course, we haven't made up our minds yet, especially with several huge titles on the immediate horizon. As for Call of Duty: Black Ops …well, who knows?
Speaking of the Treyarch/Activision mega-blockbuster, it comes out this week and we'd like you to make another prediction- what are we gonna give it? Let's just rule out anything below a 6 right now; while we never count our chickens before they've hatched, we just refuse to believe Black Ops is a poor product from an objective standpoint. That being said, we do try to be as accurate and as in-depth as possible, as all our loyal readers well know by now. You can trust us not to be blinded by the CoD lovefest but you can also trust that we'll give quality its just due. So…what say you?
