I have never even heard of it. Is it a console only game?

It's a PS3 only game. I'm quite surprised it's GOTY.

Same, I think there is a demo out for the PS3, but I might be mistaken.

It's surprising that a major site picked it as GotY, but it doesn't surprise me at all. I've been saying it's GotY for a while now, and even having played through the holiday titles I still believe it's not only the best game released this year, but the best action role-player of all time.

I'm glad Gamespot stepped up and gave this game the recognition it deserves instead of going with the typical meme picks that every other site will choose.

Yea,eventhough i haven't played it i think Gamespot showed some balls picking it as goty,my hat's of to them for not going the easy route and picking something more mainstream/high profile.

Wow... never expected it to get this much praise... I love the game and can't wait for a sequel... expected it to be either Uncharted 2 or MW2... definitely not Demon's Souls lol.

I like the conversation they have about the game

I am almost intrigued to buy this bastard, except I already have so many other games to play

Heh...I've never played Demon's Soul so I cannot criticize their decision for GOTY....just as long as COD MW 2 didnt' pick that up

and I'm glad to see that L4D2 didnt make the list as it was nominated for GOTY at the VGA's even before its release
