I know it sounds silly - but so far (only been playing for 5-6 hours) Borderlands 2 is a very good candidate for my game of the year!
Good god this game is fun!
Budhi my friend, it does not sound silly at all.
I haven't started playing Borderlands 2 yet but I think it will be GOTY, early ratings are very, very high. only problem is Watchdogs, Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3 are going to be very highly rated also.
I know i'm going to love it either way though, I did 2 playthroughs on Borderlands 1 with Mordecai, aswesome game. One of my favourites ever. The art style is completely reenergised, it looks awesome. I'm so excited, DL is almost done
