im so far behind on other games that i havent opened that i dont mind waiting. Id hate to buy this version, only to have a new one come out with all the extras. all the top selling games have me paranoid of this. i also havent bought god of war 3 for that very reason.
im pretty sure god of war 3 will be a goty but im unsure of modnation, but it might piggyback off LBP's success.
what do u guys think are the chances it reaches goty status?
No. Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mass Effect 2, and God of War III are probably the front runners right now.
ModNation Racers will probably be my favorite game of this generation though. Also, based off the Metacritic rating, the game is mad under rated. With fixed load times, this definitely a 90+ caliber game, hands down. Still, an 82 is great and this shouldn't be overshadowed. Mario Kart Wii is an 82 on metacritic and that has sold 22 million anyways...
I think you r talking about the "Game of the Year" (GotY) edition game, like the Call of Duty 4 GotY, Oblivion GotY, Batman Arkaham Asylum GotY, Little Big Planet GotY, etc. I think it will probably have a GotY edition in a year or so, if not at least a Greatest Hits version with more extra content included, you can wait a year for that, or just join the fun right now, its up to you.
And for the awards giving to the games at the end of the year, I think as of today, Mario Galaxy 2 its the stronger contestant for game of the year.
