    personaly i loved zelda and the twilight princess but then i started to like AC (Ac is an awesome game probably one of my favorite) but what i'm trying to say is that Zelda is a kids game so its more appropriate. And for skyrim, zelda wouldin't stand a chance against skyrim

    I really hate you guys now. I joined this site because i wanted to vote my favourite games of the year. I voted two of my favourites to the very end, with the end result of Skyward Sword being king of games in my goals. It has finally won. You allowed the users to vote. You did not pick who won what round. If you had, Skyward Sword would have lost to Uncharted 3 in a landslide in the first round. Why? Because you guys can't stand the sight of a company that is dominating in terms of this generation sales, has innovated their technology (N64 first analog stick, Motion Controls), and raised the gaming industry back up from the rubble it was left in back in the 1980s. If anything you should be thanking Nintendo. But no, you people, you biased, biased people, refuse to say even the slightest good thing about their products. You hid the counter, you could have tinkered the votes and none of us would have known. We would have suspected of course, but not have 100% known. But you didn't. You watched as a game you despised climbed it's way up to the top, and watched as it became king. When it became king you didn't blame yourselves for missing the opportunity, or congratulate the new winner of the Video Game Deathmatch. Instead, you complained. You complained for no reason other than spite and maybe some jealousy. If you had cheated, you would have finished this off with a shred of dignity left, as some would have been none the wiser. But you chose not too, and only hurt yourselves. You feebly attempted to disgrace us, yet you only disgraced yourselves. You call yourselves not only a gaming website, but the most trusted gaming website. You lie to yourselves only. We see through this facade that you try to use to keep us from seeing the truth about your disgraceful website. We see through the banner at the top of the page, attempting to trick us into believing every word you say. But you cannot trick us. Us... a word i have said several times now. Us does not refer to everyone on this site. US refers to the users who know the truth about you. US has been growing by the minute ever since you created this "deathmatch." And US are those people who cannot stand another second of this mockery you call the most trusted gaming website. Now, I am no fanboy of The Legend of Zelda who will make multiple accounts to make it succeed. I enjoy Assassin's Creed. But what would you have said if it had won? Both games were not nominated for Game of the Year. What does that show about your skills in reviewing and choosing what will be crowned Game of the Year. Face it, you love Skyrim. As do I. But you will go out of your way to make sure it has very little competition, but you made one mistake. Putting it in the same bracket as Skyward Sword. It was inevitable they would meet before the final round now. And thus, Skyward Sword beat Skyrim in an epic battle, fought to the very end. Now why was Skyward Sword not nominated? Was it out of pure malice and hate for the game, or immature jealousy that the game of the Peoples (Peoples is capitalized out of respect) beat your game, and you couldn't stand to see it be near your game again, lest it defeat it once again? Now, you control who wins and who goes into Game of the Year. But not even nominating a game for game of the Year, completely throwing to the wind the game that the most people evidently want to see?! It sickens me. Your lousy commentary of this video is embarrassing to yourselves. It was unnecessary, rude, and plain stupid. You were mad that you missed an opportunity, so you attempted to defile the game now held most high by the Peoples. Become less biased, or change your motto.

    *As a side note, thank you to all who read this long narrative comment akin to the writings of Shakespeare or Homer, just written about video games. Thank you for sticking with Zelda or Assassin's Creed throughout. You truly deserve my respect. To G4tv, i give you no respect, and i speak for many of the Peoples when i say this: stop what you are doing. Please. Your dignity is dangling over a vat of fire, but we can only help you up if we see some changes. If not, so be it.

    Thank you.

    Of course Zelda won because of biased fanboys. The masses could not possibly have your refined gaming palettes. You guys at G4 are the pinnacle of excellence in your field, and if you disagree with 500,000 fans, clearly the 500,000 fans must be wrong. How dare we disagree with your exquisite tastes. How could we possibly prefer Zelda Skyward Sword to such amazing experiences like L.A. Noire and Super Mario 3D Land? In the future, we will be sure not to voice our own opinions. We will allow our lords and masters at G4 TV tell us what games to like and which games to hate.

    Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword won Best Soundtrack and Deathmatch Winner of 2011.
    Awesome series, great game. But according to the video, the staff seems to think otherwise. G4TV has always had some sort of problem with the series because on the Skyward Sword videos, the staff is constantly complaining and making fun of the series. Apparently, Skyward Sword won because of the "fans massing together to take Revenge" and "Anger always wins." What the....? How stupid.
    Skyward Sword won because it was an amazing game, and many people think so. So is Assassin's Creed Revelations! I wouldn't have minded either games winning but it bothers me how the G4TV staff makes Legend of Zelda less than it is. I'm sure with any other game NOT from Nintendo, the match would have been "won fair and praised". And given it's credit.

    "G4TV: MOST TRUSTED VIDEOGAME WEBSITE" Isn't that the website's motto or something? BLEH. Lies. All of them.
    If G4TV was really the serious videogame - reviewing website/channel it claims to be... then it's not making a good show about it. I've watched a few different videos, the voice actors sometimes seem tired, indignant, disgusted. Then they give opinions as if they were completely and utterly correct. They think too highly of themselves I suppose.

    Alright, I'm done complaining. But I don't just speak for myself, I speak for a lot of people who were disappointed at the way G4TV reviews some games. Other websites give better reviews, with less personal opinions and more fact and gameplay. How disappointing G4TV.

    ___ you G4, ___ you! You couldn't even be remotely mature about the fact that THE FANS, NOT YOU think Zelda is the best this year. And you call yourself the most trusted gaming site... You think fanboys are to blame for Zelda winning? No, it won because it is a fresh, innovative game with amazing art style. You just can't stand the fact that a "non hd, kiddy game" beat out your precious Skyrim. You guys suck!

    Oh G4, can you at least tell us what is wrong with Nintendo? Why do you always put Nintendo down? Skyward Sword is legit, and you guys say it won because of a larger fanbase? No, Skyward Sword won simply because it was the best there is. And we cheated no less than other games FYI, otherwise why the hell is AC:R here? Treat Skyward Sword with some respect. TLoZ is a series that shall remain for generations.

    Here's a question: Why was the "Nintendo fanbase" enraged that Skyward Sword wasn't nominated? Are you implying that Assassin's Creed doesn't have a fanbase? NEITHER game in the final round of Deathmatch was nominated for Game of the Year. So either the people at G4 are still bitter that Skyrim lost to Skyward Sword or they're out of touch enough to suggest that Skyward Sword is a bad game that won purely on the loyalty of the Zelda fanbase.

    I voted because I loved it. And quite a few posts on the page would hint at people voting because they loved it as well. But no... I wonder what they would say if AC or Skyrim had one? Probably something more respectable, I mean come on....
