    I'm kinda shocked Split Second won the best racing game title. It reminds me way too much like burnout and was nothing new to me. I was pretty sure it was either going to be gt5 or NFS. Gt5 for its awesome real drive sim vs NFS fun street racing or Cop villain chasing lol

    Limbo IS pretty awesome, its a creepy gloomy game with something new although very similar to other titles. I can't choose between SC2 and MS2 but i am glad MS2 won and SC2 won the deathmatch. Own both games and love both. Go rpg/rts!

    I just want them to bring back the story line. I mean did anyone notice that ME2 was really about nothing but collecting crew and only had 2 or 3 main missions. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love the game play but the story is what was so awe inspiring in ME1. Please Bioware bring back the compiling story with the jaw dripping twist.

    How did God Of War 3 not win best action game?

    It always feels like my thumb is more on the pulse of G4 than SPIKE when it comes to these award shows. Good work!

    So I noticed Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep wasn't even nominated for anything. I find that there is a problem here. Anyone else agree?

    Black Ops was terrible! name one thing they improved since MW2 (all the glitches and hacks dont count because they weren't intended to actually be part of the game). Notice how almost no shooter has nearly as many campers, thats because BO forces you to camp to get killstreaks.

    Some of these awards just make me sick. Forza had some of the best graphics of any game and no awards. And don't even get me started on Assasin's Creed not winning anything.

    I only see 2 Xbox exclusives:
    Reach and LIMBO.

    When over the last few years did X-play get bought by Microsoft? I own and enjoy all the consoles, but I can't even watch X-play anymore it is so biased.

    Yay! A PSP game won something! XD But, seriously nice winners. And sadly all I would be able to play is Split/Second and Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker.

    Mass Effect 2 was the best game I played this year. I did really like RDR as well. Starcraft 2 was okay, but felt like it was missing something for me. After looking at the awards, I may give Limbo a try. I had not heard much about that game before.

    I know all of the PS3 fanboys are going to be upset once I say this, but without question you can't deny how awesome the games are on the Xbox360. They practically swept the Best of 2010 with all exclusive titles and arcade games, with the exception of SC2(pc game) and RDR(multiplatform). I know a lot are saying that 2011 will be the year for Playstation, but I could've sworn PS3 fans were saying that last year too.
