Not to accuse any one fanbase of being entirely rigid or something, but there's Last Guardian, Twisted Metal (there's a Sony game I'm old enough to be nostalgic for), Killzone 3, and Uncharted 3 all hitting this year, so the votes might be split a little more than just that.

There's also the chance that any one of them actually underwhelms. I don't see it coming from Naughty Dog, because they've never made a bad sequel to anything, but there could be a "been there done that" feeling like what happened with SMG2.
But personally, I think Skyward Sword's gonna get reamed here and elsewhere. Even in the chance that it's really, really fantastic, the fact that it's motion controls only means some people will be predisposed to not liking it (nothing wrong with that) and the fanbase for it will probably be limited.
