    Did you see Morgan Webb gushing over the new 360 dashboard without one mention of all the problems it was having(bricked consoles etc.,)? But they were all over Sony during it's hacking problems. Don't remember them saying much about 360's 33% failure rate thanks to E71 error, aka RROD. What a bunch of biased hacks!

    They were basically saying SS only won because viewers were angry that it wasn't selected for GOTY. It couldn't possibly be because it was a better game, as chosen by the viewers. What a bunch of hacks. It's funny to watch them gush over AC when it gets released every year with animation upgrades and gameplay upgrades they don't really like(see all their AC reviews and previews), but Skyward Sword advances the Zelda franchise in a fairly new direction with excellent gameplay and beautiful art direction with superb controls, and gets a "meh, it's Zelda" 4 out of five despite most all the REPUTABLE gaming websites giving it "perfect" scores and lauding those aforementioned advances in the game? The review for SS itself was so lackluster as if it was only done because you[XPLAY] had to. But you nominate Gears 3 and Saints Row 3, two Xbox 360 exclusives mind, but not Uncharted 3 [ having no wins despite similar accolades] and you wonder why you're constantly accused of being Xbox fanboys. Own up to it, I could at least respect you for what you are then.

    Does that mean Skyrim won your game of the year because of your anger, G4? Adam clearly said "Anger always wins, in the end." That tells me that I can't even trust your very own game of the year award. You scumbags sicken me.

    Wow, you guys (G4TV) are rude, biased idiots.

    Firstly... your description of Zelda SS for the entire competition was WRONG. As "the most trusted video game site", one would think you would research a game enough to know what it's about. You stated, quite mockingly, that gamers would be "rescuing Princess Zelda once again and collecting treasure". I'm not going to go into an even bigger rant and explain EVERYTHING that is wrong with your description, but just to get my point across: ZELDA ISN'T EVEN A PRINCESS IN THIS GAME, and the premise of the game isn't to save her. She holds her own and fights her way alone through most of the game.

    Then, you match Zelda up against your GOTY nominees such as Batman and Skyrim (which, IMO, Zelda and Skyrim should've been the final round) because you clearly didn't think Zelda would or should beat them.

    Now, it finally wins, and this is what we get? A half-assed, condescending, almost fan-bashing "Zelda won?" video? Yeah, Zelda fans are angry, because you're biased and moronic. But that's not why it won. It won BECAUSE IT'S A GOOD GAME. A great game, actually. Which maybe G4TV can't' or doesn't want to admit, but no one cares about what game YOU pick for GOTY, G4. The PEOPLE and the FANS chose Zelda SS, and that means a hell of a lot more to me.

    FYI, I'm not a Zelda fanboy. I love Skyrim as well, and Skyward Sword is the first Zelda I've played since the original. I was impressed by it so much that I pretty much stopped playing Skyrim entirely, and I fell so in love with it that I'm now going back to play all the older Zelda's. It's an amazing game. Grow up and be a little more mature and respectful to Nintendo and your "fans".

    In a mockingly tone: "And ofcourse I'm sure it helped that the Nintendo fanbase was enraged that we didn't nominate Skyward Sword. Enraged!!"

    "That's..that's...that's a nice term. It was a close race but anger always win in the end."

    The more I hear it, the more I shake my head. Wow how unprofessional. Why aren't they fired yet? Or better yet why does G4 still exist?

    Come on guys, really?? Any sane gamer should be able to see the innovations in games like Skyrim, Arkham City, or Portal 2. Skyward Sword is the same tired Zelda formula re-skinned. I love Zelda, but you have to admit it's been essentially the same game over and over again. Isn't anyone craving for something fresh to be done to differentiate Zelda from past games? .... any don't use the unnecessary motion control gimmick as an example. At least Windwaker tried to be a little different.

    I hope IGN or GAMESPOT gives S.S GOTY so that all you Zelda Fanboys would just shut up. But I don't think that's gonna happened. Skyrim, Batman,Portal or AC have a better chance. Don't hate me, hate the gaming industry.
