Detroit is certainly a GoTY contender for me. Honestly it’s a 5/5 or whatever you want to rate it, it’s everything I expected and wanted the game to be, then some. Very impressive.

But when a GOTY competitor comes along, you just kind of know, and that's the case with God of War. It's the sort of game that's hard to find fault with, but there's more to it than just a game that does everything expected of it and does it well.
