PS3 Game Of The Year: The Winner
  • The Winner

  • Dishonored

    Dishonored

    "The incredible variety of ways you can engage or evade your enemies makes Dishonored impressively flexible and utterly captivating." - Chris Watters

    Winner
  • The Nominees

  • Far Cry 3

    Far Cry 3

    "Stretches of unpredictable exploration and free-form hunting alternate with challenging pirate confrontations. This is an ambitious and finely tuned adventure that gets better and better as you play." - Kevin VanOrd

  • Mass Effect 3

    Mass Effect 3

    "Mass Effect 3 fearlessly manipulates previously established personal bonds, forcing you to make difficult choices and consider the greater good--even when the greater good isn't always clear." - Kevin VanOrd

    Watch the Review »
  • Max Payne 3

    Max Payne 3

    "With savage gunplay and an absorbing personal story, Max Payne 3 is an exhilarating shooter that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go." - Carolyn Petit

  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    "Enemy Unknown isn't a simple remake of the original X-COM, but like that game, it cannily instills a sense of fear. Earth is under attack by aliens, and the game makes no attempts to humanize the attackers." - Kevin VanOrd

The saddest thing is that Dishonored looks and plays muuuuch worse on PS3 than on PC, and on PC it's not even the GOTY.�

If Journey won award for GOTY and if it is a PS3 exclusive then why would ps3 game of the year be something so different?

Because Gamespot put Journey under Best PSN Game which it ended up winning as well.

Why does a multi-platform game win GOTY on a specific console? This category should only be populated by exclusives,�

If Dishonored is so awesome (haven't played it), make a Multi-Platform Game of the Year category.

@astr0creep Honestly I love Dishonored. And if it were PC Exclusive I might be able to get behind this. But I actually play it with a controller cause it seems easier. Should not even be in this category. Exclusives only. Same with the other platforms.

A playstation 3 exclusive wins the game of the year, but is not even nominated for the platform's awards? It doesn't make sense to me anymore, so which does Gamespot think is better Dishonored or Journey? O_o

@RAMUHAS�I believe it was IGN that gave Journey GotY, right? �Or did Gamespot do it too?

Oh, PS3 and PSN games are in different categories... my bad.

Dishonored is a beautiful game in every aspect of my point of view, it totally deserves this recognition.

Um how is this PS3's goty when PS3 is not the pathetic 360 that can't come up with a new franchise they rely on halo PS3 rely's on more new games so why not pick a PS3 exclusive cause most of them are better than the third party games.

Sigil-otaku

@constantterror�Oh yeah sony relies on new games, how's that working out for the Vita? Smashing.

Sure it is good if you want new games (and I do too) but if you like what MS is delivering at least you know you will get it, with Sony I can either get a marvelous system like the PS2 or a crap one like the Vita and it's just a gamble which I get. I am not wanting to dive into next gen right away with Sony or MS because Sony has little to offer in the way of good stable franchises (since I'm not a fan of uncharted or Killzone etc.) �and MS isn't delivering enough fresh and good franchises to compensate despite having a big hitter like Halo.

I half-figured when I saw you ranting on the shooter page you wasn't actually a halo fan though lol, probably just a fanboy calling the 360 pathetic and praising the PS3 lol. I even prefer the PS3 but be honest or stop presenting your false and poor fanboy opinions as informed ones.

@flyingzebra20�probably because GS is stupid.... they give the GOTY for Journey and the PS3 winner is another game.... maybe they forgot that Journey is exclusive for PS3, i think they dont even know it!

anyway this makes no sense...

dishonored deserves this, especially since it's an original ip. it's very very rare to see a new ip succeed so much! if you think it was boring and repetitive, it's because YOU are boring and not creative. any game such as this or far cry 3 where you choose how to approach any situation is only as fun as you make it to be. they give you the tools, and you have the freedom to do as you wish! it's a great concept and i wish games used it more. if you're so retarded that you need your video game to be a linear rollercoaster ride for it to be fun, then go back to COD but know that it those games don't deserve GOTY. the innovative and new ip's should win because it promotes evolution in video games, more developers will look to be innovative themselves if they know it can succeed like Dishonored did. so stop acting like the republicans of the gaming community and get used to change...�

PS3 game of the year should be a PS3 exclusive,Dishonored better than far cry 3 i don't think so.The award should go to Starhawk considering it's a PS3 exclusive.

When I think of the PlayStation exclusives that I've actually bought this year and enjoyed the most then Starhawk would easily steal this category..� Don't be fooled by my biased 'Warhawk' username and Emmett avatar.. haha.. but the game was actually damn good.� Platform-specific categories should focus on titles only present on that console.� There's no need for a general Game of the Year if all sub-categories vote for the same thing anyway :/

Change it for next year GameSpot.. Yeah?

Dealio.

@warhawk-geeby I think Starhawk got less votes because it promotes violence. Not great for our school kids.

Tough call. �All great titles. �Dishonored certainly deserves it. �Mass Effect 3 is right there though. �Hell, I would have even chosen ME3 but Dishonored got it so I ain't mad bro.

max payne 3 was a candidate??? That game was sooo repetitive and had more flash then substance. Max payne 1 & 2 where done much better.

Interesting choice, but certainly not undeserved. I thought it could do a little better with its game elements (stealth vs action), but it is magically charming.
