Two soccer titles and a cartoon golf game? Geez. No Madden 13? I'll go with NHL 13 all the way. Still I'm a little disappointed with the picks.

Ah, the category also known as the: What's The Point category. NBA or NHL will be the only champions ever, and it amuses me how many people buy these games year after year but then slam CoD for doing the same thing every year...when it hasn't this time. Here's an idea...stop buying these games too, maybe then we'll get more IPs and less sequels/remakes every single year.

FIFA.... The game that entertain you for a year.

This is a weird category because each person likes better a certain type of sport and therefore will vote for the game that depicts it.

NBA2k13 hands down, they finally nailed the MY PLAYER mode.

Gamestop really missed the ball here on a couple of games, unlike in the other categories where they did a great job. First of all, who the heck is playing Football Manager instead of Madden? I also felt SSX was the best sports game of the year by a wide margin and it's a crime that they didn't give it the credit it deserves.

For the same reason we watch the games of the team we support in the sport that we like the most even if they are not champions every year. It is quite different from COD. My money is on FIFA. Football rocks!

 @USAPATRIOT21 people that think american football is like drinking a puke shake and stabbing your eyeballs with forks.

 @The_Last_Ride  The idea is to pick the best game for each sport. Football, golf, hockey, basketball, and soccer were all represented. Having PES would skew it too heavily for one sport.

 @Kats_RK yup, Gamespot has been ignoring the series for years, such a huge dissapointment

 @IGFGAThrawn Still, ignoring the fact it's probably the best football game, and not even nominating it is just wrong
