DAILY MANIFESTO

Tell GR: Which Upcoming Games Will Be GR's 2012 Game Of The Year Nominees?

Posted on Friday, October 19 @ 16:06:41 Eastern by


The announcement of Game Revolution's official nominees for Game of the Year is only two months away, and we're already having a hard time trimming the list down to five titles (maybe more, maybe fewer).

On Game Revolution Radio several weeks ago, I was extremely lenient on what could be nominated, but let's be honest here. There are only a handful of prospective titles released so far that could legitimately make the list: Mass Effect 3, Journey, Dishonored, X-COM: Enemy Unknown, Borderlands 2, Darksiders II, Mark of the Ninja, UFC Undisputed 3, and Dragon's Dogma. (Plus Guild Wars 2, thanks LawnGnome!)

However, the year is hardly over.

We've still got around seven potential game-changers down the line for the holiday season: Assassin's Creed III, Need for Speed World, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Hitman: Absolution, and Far Cry 3. They are all worthy of contention, some more than others.

I haven't even mentioned any of the launch titles for the Wii U. Maybe ZombiU, Nintendo Land, or New Super Mario Bros. U will blow us away. Maybe not.

Which upcoming games will become our GotY nominees? And which of those games won't? Sound off your predictions in the comments below.
