    The good news is I'll be able to try out most of these games while waiting for instance queues to pop! I guess DPS does have its advantages afterall

    ME2 is a very good traditional game where you pick it up and play it once. SC2 makes a good competitive game. You can't compare the two. As far as community goes SC2 will always win since ME2's community is always hopping over to the next new game where SC2 will always stay loyal.

    I can not beleive Mass Effect won GOTY really????? There are SO many better games than this game. Don't get me wrong it was a AWESOME game. FOR ME TO POOP ON. What about Assasins Creed Awesome it won nothing ah epic mickey awesome no game of the year and God Of War 3 clearly the GAME OF THE YEAR I am shocked it didn't win anything on g4 WTF!!!!! After the rating it got from adam and what's her face NOTHING. Sony Santa Monica Studios made a masterpiece with this game. Like someone else posted DID YOU PLAY the first 15 mins of that game a huge boss fight GOW 3 desrves more props than it got

    Hmm, Adam Sessler professes his love for the Mass Effect series and it magically wins multiple awards? This year and last years GOTY awards look a little rigged.

    my only real problem with this is that battlefield bad company 2 didn't even get a nomination for best multiplayer.
