    Writing GOTY without actually telling what the abbreviation means in an article isn't very good English. It took me a bit to figure out what it meant. Not everyone here knows all the gamer lingo.

    BL2 is only good when played with friends... Whichever company gave them the Game Of The Year title... has a narrow field of view...
    Especially when considering there are titles like "The Walking Dead", "Dishonored" and "Far Cry 3"...

    The majority of people here are PC gamers and enthusiasts. Very few of them will not know what GoTY means as it has been used for over 20 years to describe when a game is pretty much the best of its genre.

    But to help people out, GoTY = Game of the Year.

    That's all opinion. BL2 is not only good when playing with friends. It is better since its more monsters that are harder and better loot.

    As for the titles you listed, since GoTY has pretty much been more genre based these days, only FC3 would be able to compete and even then BL2 is a ARPGFPS. Its like Diablo 3 but with actual good loot and replay ability and a FPS. FC3 is not a AFPS but rather a open world RPG/FPS minus the loot.

    Its a good game but BL2 is as well.
