Gamers think they've already worked out 2024's GOTY

Gamers think they've already worked out 2024's GOTY

Do you agree with this prediction?

It may be early in 2024, we’ve barely gotten started really, but some gamers believe they already know 2024’s ‘game of the year’.

There are some top quality titles coming this year and there are surely still a few we aren’t even aware of, yet this hotly anticipated sequel has those over on Reddit thinking the winner is coming soon. The game in question is Dragon’s Dogma 2, so will it be another RPG taking the game of the year crown?

Can Dragon's Dogma 2 steal the 'game of the year' crown?

Admittedly, the post was made in part, to poke some fun at Horizon Zero Dawn. It seems that whenever a Horizon game comes out, it shares the date with another big hitter that ends up stealing the end of year accolades. In the past it has shared a date with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Elden Ring, both of which claimed a lot of awards. Now it seems the PC release of Horizon Forbidden West is sharing its spotlight with Dragon’s Dogma 2.

To be fair, the prediction may not be far off. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a highly anticipated title and is shaping up to be an amazing experience. The original has a lot of fans and is often cited as an underrated game. With the development and progression we’ve seen in trailers thus far, it’s looking like another 2024 banger.

Game’s that garner a lot of awards do tend to be RPGs, so perhaps Reddit is right on this one. Another big RPG that will transport gamers away from, well, everything, could end up being this year’s Baldur’s Gate 3. Poor Aloy, overshadowed once again, but at least PC players can play Horizon Forbidden West finally.

Either way, gamers are eating well in 2024 and we could still have some killer titles in the pipeline.
