Well, the final Game of the Year candidate drops this week. At least, that's what most believe.

Early reviews are very positive for the highly anticipated Far Cry 4 , so do you think it has a legitimate shot at earning the overall 2014 crown?

Some might say that given the huge amount of critical praised heaped upon Dragon Age: Inquisition , it's the front-runner for Game of the Year, and Assassin's Creed Unity disqualified itself by being a technical muddle. Then there's the dark horse that is the surprising Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare , which really went over well with reviewers and gamers alike. The question is, can the new Far Cry hold its own against such competition?

What do you expect from the latest FC entry? Do you think it'll be an award-winner?

What about GTA 5? Can it win 2 years in a row?

No it's a re release. It only counts in the original year it came out. It's the same as last of us and tomb raider.

As stated, a re-release shouldn't count. But I wouldn't be surprised if I don't like Far Cry 4 (which seems great by the way) quite as much as I like GTA V (played the crap out of it on PS3 and am looking forward to playing it again on PS4).

I know there's no chance of it but right now my personal GotY would be wolfenstein, it had an engaging story and super fun gameplay and I absolutely love it.

I've put 12+ hours into the game and I must say Far Cry 4 is my game of the year. Runner up being The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

Why do you say new guy is better than vos? Is he crazier?

He's crazier, more interesting, more menacing and his interactions (thus far) with the main character are well developed. Vaas was just insane. Min has purpose.

I heard that the new bad guy only shows up for ten minutes in the game max.

I am really on the edge with this game.
I didn't play FC3 but I played FC2 and remember that free-roaming and clearing enemy outposts got boring after awhile. The story was weak also to keep me in the game. Has this one got better story and mission varity?

i know i might get a crap load of thumb downs for this but truthfully i think NO games year deserve to be named Game of the Year this year. But thats just my opinion. Most games this year rereleases or released a buggy mess or where hyped but failed to deliver.

Well, the game I've put the most hours into this year has been Destiny.

So, unless Dragon Age or Far Cry pull me away, then Destiny would probably be my GoTY.

So the year isn't over and one of the biggest titles in a well received series is about to release but you're already deciding no game deserves GOTY.

You're right, it is your opinion and it's retarded.

You are absolutely right.None of these games are GOTY because everyone has different tastes.I personally could careless for Destiny,COD,Shadow of Mordor, AC or any other game besides Dragon Age and LBP3.Though I will be getting FC4 because there is nothing else coming that i remotely interesting. The best game I played all year is TLoU Remaster and it's still the best game out since it's release with nothing coming close in the near future except maybe the Witcher or Bloodborne.

FC4 will probably be universally pleasing, but I think Inquisition has this year wrapped up with a neat little bow.

…and amazingly it has shipped today from GameFly to me!

Let's not forget that Far Cry 3 was the highest rated first person shooter in 2013 (based on metacritic).
