    -INfamous doesnt deserve the GOTY award, i played it the day it came out, and beat in it a little over 6 1/2 hours..Its very challenging but the fact that it doesnt allow you to obtain the "call down lightning" power until the very last minute of the game is a bit of a let-down. Although it was Fun, Challenging, and gave gamers a new look on gaming. EX: the fact you could choose to be a Power Hungry Badass(Evil) or Be flourescent with everyone, but still keep a firm hand on your peoples (good).-
    --Now, CoD:MW2 Its new and unexplored, we ALL no that basically everyone just wants it for its online play, and besides the fact its just Modern...Warfaring, so yea anyways I'm unsure about it myself.--
    ---Lets look at Uncharted 2..Hmm i didnt like the first at all.. just the game-play just seemed a bit forward, no extra allowment to it or anything..so in my own common opinion GOTY isnt a charity.---
    ----Assassin's Creed 2 Just looks simply amazing, Its a MAJOR improvement from the first one, the first one was just do this this and this, no? this one adds a little bit more of a chance and adeptness to the environment. Plus i mean its based on Venice, a place of beauty and wonderfulness...igleast not until now =D
    This game seems to be one of the main competetors within this GOTY Award.----
    -----And Last but Not least Borderlands, I havent had much of a time to play it but, i can say it is very exciting that someone can actually mix together an FPS with a RPG,(next we need a RTS with RPG XD) This game on the fact is actually quite different than i had been imagining, its just got the little more of an edge since its a new combination of two styles of gaming, lets see, monsters look kinda wonderful, and have that unrealistic/"new-realistic" look to them, which is good in my books, since you dont see very many games with that, the weapons...87 gazillion?!??!!!?!?!....I doubt that, my thinking is anywere from 100K to 1M weapons. So its a top competetor in my books.-----

    Your Fellow Sociopath,

    ODST for GOTY? You mean Halo 3 part 2? COD blows that away. Even so, FPS are overrated. Uncharted 2 is a good pick. Infamous is deserving of a nomination but not winning GOTY. And where are Batman and DAO? AC2 seems much better but not worth a nomination. Batman and U2 are the 2 best of the year in my book.

    Modern Warfare 2 should NOT game of the year!

    I have played Uncharted 2, Borderlands and MW2 but not AC2. There is no way COD:MW 2 deserves GOTY....

    Why does every game review Magazine and/or Online Site have a stiffy for Modern Warfare?

    I just don't get it......

    Uncharted 2 hands down imo. inFAMOUS was AWESOME, but still not quite as good as U2. Played MW2 and...meh. Want to play Borderlands, looks sweet but don't think it will come even close to U2. And AC2 just isn't my type of game. UNCHARTED 2 BABY!!!!!!!

    I don't really agree (don't own a ps3) with it, but I'm sure they'll pick Uncharted 2 as game of the year

    MW2 does not deserve game of the year. (I'm gonna get a lot of thumbs down for this I just know it hah)
    Borderlands all the way. Maybe Uncharted 2 too, cause it looked awesome, I just never played it. I wished list had L4D2 though.

    hmmmm.. I wonder why Uncharted 2 was mentioned last..maybe because it's going to win!?? Lol, go Uncharted!!

    Where's L4D2? I think a truly great game is one that you can play the same level over and over again and never get tired of. And with the release (soon!) of the SDK, the game has almost infinite replayability...

    Oh right, PC gaming doesn't matter, nvmd. It sucks on the 360 :P

    Of course I agree with the list, but it's so tough to pick a favorite.

    All around game of the year has to go to Uncharted. It's single player and it's online are amazing. MW2 is great online but lost it with it's lacking single player.

    I have to say these are good choices. With the many games made this year it is good to see more than a handful of good games that make me want to go back and think about the great experiences I had with those games. Good Job X-play and an excellent year for gaming.

    I respect the nominations, however I'd like to know why Batman: Arkham Asylum was overlooked. It's been touted as the best superhero game ever made and right now it is the measuring stick for future superhero action adventure games. I personally would have given it the nod before Infamous - as enjoyable as that game is.

    Um... how about some variety shoot shoot shoot 3/5 of those games TBH i think Dragon Age should be on there im still playing that and im on my 5th time through..... Assassins Creed 2 i agree with waffleman that has no business being on there it was really good but not anything spectacular. And im not gonna lie i love that Halo ODST isnt on there that tickles me. Next years WINNER IS!!!! God of War III

    I dont see this year as exciting as next in the GOTY category. I mean next year you have Halo Reach, Mass Effect 2, FFXIII, God of War 3, MAG (maybe)and a possible Doom 4. Oh and Crackdown 2 and more Xbox games. Im sorry but im excited next year. Im not upset at not getting a Ps3 because alot of exclusives are coming out for Xbox and are out.
