    Have the people that say mass effect is a generic guns plus aliens shooter even played the game? I mean honestly no human that has actually played any mass effect could say that without knowing its bull, im sure the people that say that are the people that are mad that GOW lost and are trash talking a game that they have no knowledge about.

    Some of you guys on here are pretty funny. Apparently only kids vote for Mass Effect? I'd like to see proof of that. I've been playing games since the original Nintendo when some of you were probably either still in diapers or a twinkle in your father's eyes. I can honestly say that Mass Effect has one of the most masterfully crafted stories I've ever played, seen or read over the years, and that is up against the likes of some of the games in this deathmatch as well. The Metal Gear series was my favorite, and the reason I bought a PS3, however, had it come down to MGS3 vs. ME, I would have picked ME. It would not have been an easy choice but it would have been the right one. Now, don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the GoW series. I thought they were pretty fun, but worth one playthrough each. I had no desire to play them again. Uncharted is amazing, but again good for one playthrough. None of those games have held me as much as ME has. I looks forward to seeing what else Bioware has in store for this wonderful franchise.

    P.S. Calling ME a generic shooter is like calling GoW a generic fantasy game.

    Tell me what ever you want but this isn't right, how the hell Mass effect (1) would beat GOW, if it was ME3, I would understand, it's just wrong..........

    I don`t get it, So Mass Effect won? At first I thought the whole deathmatch games chosen was stupid, some of those games I`d never even heard of. But whatever, I`ll be honest, I`m a shallow gamer. If it doesn`t look good I won`t play it most of the time, but some times I`ll fight through if the story is compelling enough such as OoT or FF7. I just don`t see how it came down to ME3 and GOW, the story didn`t end at one, how about the other two G4, you know, the rest of the story? Your gonna sit there and tell me they didn`t happen? I wish ME3 didn`t happen, those so called "endings" were crap. At least GOW gave us some what of a closer.

    Hmm, I assumed when they included Mass Effect that it included the entire series, not just the first game. I guess I was wrong!

    i would have prefered God of War but i cant fault Mass Effect even though all those fans who voted for it were probably the same fans who cant stop B*tching about the games ending.

    All the comments are hating on GoW because it either beat the games they are fanboys of? Seriously all I hear is "If GoW wins I have no faith in humanity, my favorite game is the only logical option"

    No...make that about all the games vs every other game. Seriously what's with all the butthurt?
    As for the results: NO, mass effect is nowhere near the best story, and GoW has a better, more original story. People are bashing it because the theme was about revenge? So that makes it an all-rage game with no actual story? Great reasoning guys.
    On the other hand, ME's story is as cliche as most alien games/movies. Better than most but still cliche and not very impressive. Aliens + Guns always work though...

    FF7 should've won this or at least made it to the semi-finals IMO, I mean come on.

    And so the facts surface - G4 is infested with lower class fools. How did such a subpar and weak game win more votes than so many of the others? It makes no sense unless the voters have not played games for more than a year or two. MGS is better. Zelda is better. FF is better. GoW is better. Mass Effect should have lost in the first round but no, the idiots arrived in full force and all us real gamers are disappointed in the result. Cookie cutter shooters should not be entered into contests like this...

    Hopefully those who actually voted for ME feel ashamed of themselves.

    God of War is an excellently designed game, with a decent storyline. In many ways, the original God of War beats the original Mass Effect on a gameplay level.

    However, this deathmatch was about story, and when it comes to writing, Mass Effect blows God of War out of the water. The correct game won, in my opinion.

    The final four were:
    Star Wars Kotor: "The lure of the dark-side is difficult to resist..."
    God of War: "That which he desired would ultimately consume him."
    Zelda OoT: (Link surrounded by glitter)
    and Mass Effect: "I'd rather die than live under the rule of those machines."

    Lol @ Zelda. Can't believe it got so far.

    So tired of people thinking they are cool cause they believe everything is "mainstream" or a game has "fanboys". Stop putting on negative feedback for absolute no reason and get a life. People like what they like

    Overrated game, Gow/Sotc/FF7 should've won not to mention games that weren't even on the list.
    Generic Shooters always win :/
