    Not sure i agree with some of these decisions but i suppose no one ever will. LA Noire is definitely NOT game of the year material. I think the Idea and the atmosphere of the game is very strong, but the fact is the game has a tendency to become bland and has several issues, and has ABSOLUTELY no replay value. The world is boring and the gameplay does not appeal to a wide enough audience for it to be GOTY, also it had significant performance issues. Zelda definitely should have been on there, and I think Uncharted 3 should be on there as well. (sounds to me like this list was made by mostly adam sessler, he was drooling all over LA Noire because it was nostalgia porn and for some reason hated Uncharted 3). Also, the Witcher 2 should definitely been added to way more categories: Best Animation, Art DIrection, and Writing (most importantly) for sure. Also, where the hell was Little Big Planet 2? That should have been up for Multiplayer Co-Op and Art Design. And for the record, I know Killzone 3 is a hit or miss for some, but it deserves much more recognition than it has gotten. I can go on and on but I wont

    It really both me that because none of the g4 staff is good at shooters like battlefield they never get on the nominees list. How come the games that blow the doors off of the other games in sales are never up for game of the year. its to the point where im starting not to care about the xplay pick I only care about the user pick. I mean how the hell does Mario get on the board before BF3 or MW3 ???? even rage. They completely kicked rage out the running only because of the ending

    No Uncharted or Skyward Sword and we are supposed to take you seriously?!?! And then you add Super Mario 3D Land to mock the Nintendo fans, as if it would ever have a snow balls chance in hell at beating any of those console games. And you wonder why people call you Xbox fanboys. You haven't had any credibility for a long time. "Most trusted video game website." Take a page from the FOX News playbook I see. "Fair and Balanced." I see how you did that...

    I don't have a single problem with the list. They even expanded it to include more than the usual 5 game nomination. As for the Deathmatch, it really is just a fanboy contest.

    It's funny that Zelda and Assassin's Creed are finalists in the Deathmatch yet there not nominated for GOTY.

    I'm honestly more shocked Uncharted 3 didn't make the cut seriously at least Spikes VGA"s got the nominees right

    Sure X-Play, nominate Saints Row and pretend Uncharted 3 and Zelda don't even exist. Your opinions are biased (remember what Morgan Webb said about Mario Galaxy 2), you cant go and call Skyrim the greatest console game ever its incomparable to an action adventure like Uncharted 2 or a shooter like Halo. You guys tick me off so much that after 8 years of viewership I've had it. You're not worth my time. But hey what do you expect from someone who gave GOTY 2008 to Fable 2.

    To anyone who is saying "oh zelda's not even in the GOTY nominations" due to the deathmatch, think of it as if we are electing a new president (US), there is the popular vote (deathmatch) and the electoral vote (GOTY), if one wins the popular vote and loses the electoral, they are not president. This was present in the 2000 election between bush and gore. It appears to be happening with this now (at the time, SS has a 51%-49% lead). So unless Florida screws up again, SS won't be the official GOTY, but will have (if the previously mentioned statistics stayed true) won the popular. Im not trying to bash any game, im stating my opinion on the process

    Hilarious Zelda is only nominated once. Not that it's a bad game or anything, its far from it. It just find it really fun it was only nominated once.

    Lol @ Nintendo fan boys... You guys praise any game they release that's a part of one of their major franchises even if they are just the same game with some new features. They might still be great games, but at this point they aren't nearly as groundbreaking or gamechanging as they use to be... Kind of reminds me of call of duty.. They release the same game over and over and just adds new futures
