    I was hoping for Let 4 Dead 2 to win best multiplayer because of how they milked every corner of online gameplay by using the infected option. Scavenge is really really fun and is a landmark reason for me why L4D2 is not just another zombie shooter. Congrats to MW2 though, I can't wait to try out that game for myself.

    I agreed with all winners with the exception of Mario over Dragon Age. I mean really a kids game over a 60 hour RPG for shame Xplay for shame. Other then that congrats on all the other winners they really did deserve it.

    im so Glad Uncharted 2 won! such a amazing game! im also glad borderlands won for best original game im still playing it and having a blast!
    amazing games
    but the only thing is i was kinda hoping ODST won for best original sounds track the music for odst is probably one of the best soundtrack in the halo franchise.
    but i guess thats why its best "original" soundtrack but it was unique then all the other halo games. but anyways you guys did a awesome job!
    Xplay your awesome!

    Well done Naughtydog! Ever sence the origional Crash Bandicoot trilogy on the origional Play Station, you guys have been my favorie game developer. Granted, none of your games have reinvented the wheel, but sometimes it's just a matter of taking familiar likable game mechanics and polishing them to perfection. You guys have never ever EVER made a bad game, and I am so impressed with your latest installment.

    Here's to Uncharted 2, and a history of leading titles that have carried the legacy of Sony litteraly on their back.

    I'm not upset at any of these choices because they all were good games. I don't want to sound like a kindergarten teacher but i consider all of them are winners.

    Best Role-playing Game almost turned me into a forum troll. I love you guys, but I think I kind of want to engage in fisticuffs over your choice.
