    Why all these substandard console games? Real Gamers play PC games.

    ME2 was the first good choice the XPlay staff has made since advertisers owned the network...

    At least its better than Cops or Cheaters reruns...

    How did God of War loose. Mass Effect as game of the year, that is the dumbest game ever I know nobody who likes that game. Game of the year should have been Assassins Creed Brotherhood. Why wasn't the move nominated for anything when it is better than the Kinect any day. The Kinect lags way too much and is not accurate at all unlike the move witch is clear and precise. The move does everything the Kinect does except voice commands. I have both and the Kinect does nothing but collect dust because the move has way better graphics and gameplay than Kinect. If you like the cheesy graphics of the wii then get the Kinect.

    Glad to see Limbo get the accolades it deserves. It is definitely a quality game that sticks in your mind long after you finish the game.

    Kinect beat out Minecraft for best innovation? Didn't the eye toy do the same thing several years ago? (this coming from 360 fanboy)

    and the Bad Company haters continue. The game that better than both MW2 and BO still gets no love? Where's FIFA 11 in all this too. Damn these dick riders

    I am so tired of you dumbass picking retard games as winners for different categories. First of all for best handheld, Why wasn't god or war ghost of sparta or kingdom hearts birth by sleep one of the nominees. Second, your going to say that Red Dead Redemption should win BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE GAME over God of War 3. I believe that you idiots value Xbox 360 games on a different level to that of the Playstation 3 and Wii. I hope your show gets cancelled in the near future. I don't know why you are still on tv if every game that other videogame websites or shows give perfect scores, for good reason, and you take them and give them low scores. GO TO HELL

    I agree that ME 2 was one of the best games I've ever played and deserved a spot on the list but GOTY? IDK. There were so many kick ass games to come out this year like GoW 3, Fallout New Vegas, CoD Black Ops, and so many others it would be very difficult to create a list that woundn't piss off half of the gamers out here. We all have diferent tastes in games and everybody is not going to agree with any list.

    I could care less if it won, but that fact that Super Mario Galaxy got NO nominations is ridiculous. It should of gotten a few plus GOTY. Seriously, it is one of if not the best Wii game ever and it doesn't even get a nomination.
