So many people underestimate how many great games aren't made by the US.

"Most Surprising Game to make it past Aussie censors" And Prototype isn't violent at all... So Chinatown Wars has drugs. Big deal.

That's BS. Empire should have won best UK developed game.

This is a far more interesting and well done set of awards than the genre awards! Also a very good introduction to some games that you wouldn't have ordinarily have heard of or gone near. Well done GS.

I hope the next gta has a chainsaw and all the crazy stuff of San andreas.

@CAPMILLER8324 MW2 was so boring. The campaign is extremely short its only 3 acts long. Specops is not as good as Nazi Zombies. The campaign is STILL super linear. No bullet wounds and no gore THAT MADE THE LAST cod w@w SO FUN. I dont know why its even rated M. GTA4 is the best modern game series.

Avatar image for ElvisIsTheKing

I'm sorry maybe there's something I don't know....(probably how it is). But was there like some time limit of what games released could be voted on..because Bioshock 2 wasnt on this. Can anyone tell me why?

Avatar image for moonknght24

Infamous is a really great game:D

Avatar image for moonknght24

Killzone 2, GTA and PS3 are all overrated. At least give MW2 one award. Nevermind, half of them lost to GTA and Killzone 2. Seriously GTA, Saint's Row 1 and 2 are just as good if not better. PS3, it is obviously overrated because Sony finds a way to put out a good word like how they compared the PS2 to the 360 . Killzone 2 would have been better if they made it for all consoles. And MW2 is better than that... More people play MW2 than Killzone 2. Alot more. I'm not a Call of Duty bandwaggoner.. I've played since the original one on the PC.

Man it sucks that most of the good and wining games are only for consoles. It wuld be realy good if programers would think about it and make more games for pc as well as consoles because kill zone, 50 cent blood on the sand and for me now gears of war 2 are pretty good games and its a shame the are not made for pc.

What I was REALLY suprised at is how Dragon Age wasn't even included for nominations for best voice acting.
