    OK Love X-play and everything, but G4 made a bad decision on GOTY. MW2 is an incredible game. Nobody is giving the campaign or Spec Ops any credit, tons of replay ability with bith. Not even considering the fact that the multiplayer is probably the best multiplayer over the last few years. The multiplayer shouldve clinched it for GOTY. Not hating on Uncharted 2, but MW2 is incredible.
    Dont give me any crap, cuz i don't want to hear it.

    People love to be haters just to stand out and be different. No one listens to people who can't form a logical argument. Look, I'm a tried and true Xboxer who's currently addicted to MW2 on it. I also bought a PS3 a few months back for MLB09 and Blu-Ray playback. The reviews for Uncharted 2 wowed be so much that I purchased the game and was glad to see that every dollar spent was worth it.
    The rapid interweaving of cinema and gameplay is something not seen in a lot of titles. The storyline is compelling, humorous, and more action packed than most titles out there. This sequel builds a great deal on the original and feels much more fluid. It also takes the best aspects from a lot of next-gen titles, but never feels as if it's lifting as much as it is recreating and using those pieces to build a game with a great deal of depth and replayability. It feels like I'm playing a movie that I don't want to end, but can't wait to see what's waiting around the corner.
    I think this was the general consensus and why it was nominated for and WON game of the year not only on X-Play, but on the VGAs and even CNN as well.
    Not liking the title is one thing, but putting it down in the face of all its merits just because you felt your favorite game should have won is not in any way proper criticism.

    what makes Uncharted a bad series? it's apparently more than popular enough to win. maybe you might not like it, but at least give us SPECIFICS. I'm an xbox guy myself but I'm not afraid to admit that Uncharted was a quality game that deserves recognition. I only wish I could enjoy it, I mean gees guys if we could get Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to join forces they would easily be able to conquer the world. but anyways don't just hate on a game, at least give reasons so you don't come off as a troll.

    uncharted series is the biggest piece of donkey dung ever made and does not deserve to be game of the year. and Xplay im really disappointed in the nominees i really think you guys got paid boatloads of cash by sony and sold out. really Infamous a nominee thats another piece of dung to go along with uncharted. i can see borderlands being there. where was batman? batman was a million times better than infamous and uncharted and before everyone goes off and calls me a sony hater or xbox fanboy i own all three consoles and play all three i bought batman on my ps3 so fanboyisim is not the thing here i just think uncharted is unworthy of the award and infamous is unworthy of even a friggin nomination thats my 2cents
