Sucker Punch Aiming for GOTY

Sucker Punch broke into the next generation of gaming through the PlayStation 3 exclusive, inFamous, and the company had an instant hit and franchise on its hands. While inFamous didn’t win Game of the Year or even truly show up in the discussions, Sucker Punch has always had its eye on the prize and hope to achieve that goal with the sequel. Announced last month at E3 2010, inFamous 2 was unveiled with an explosive trailer that looked visually stunning and more than impressive.

“The space we’re playing in – the third-person action genre – is the Game of the Year space,” development director Chris Zimmerman told GameInformer.

“You look around and it’s Uncharted 2, it’s Assassin’s Creed, it’s God of War. It’s all these great games, and you have to be able to compete on all axes with them. On the axes of character and story and stuff, we’re much better set up this time so we can take a big, hard swing at it.”

It would be awesome for Sucker Punch to take home Game of the Year for all of the efforts the company has put forth over the years and it’s quite realistic that inFamous 2 has just a good a chance as any to do so.

Is inFamous 2 one of the games you’re looking forward to most and do you think it’ll have the chops to win GOTY?
