how is it even possible that Mass Effect 2 didnt even get recognized? The Arrival should have won best DLC over all the shitty map packs that got voted for. FOR SHAME!

Sorry to do this but, Skyrim= piece of shit. I thought there were far more deserving titles for Game of the year.

Also, interesting wins in all catergories. Happy that RF: Battlegrounds got runner up.

Sorry to do what? Spit out your opinion of which MANY people disagree with, obviously?

There were better games, sure. However, I most certainly enjoyed the HELL out of it.

A very worthy winner. While I admit I don't own it, I have watched several playthroughs on YouTube, as well as played it at a friend's house. It's definitely a game that I'm going to get to play over the long summer after uni!!

On another note, loving the new rosettes on the game pages!!
Feel free to PM me about the GTA IV walkthrough, or any problems you're having with the game.

Great games! I'm very pleased to see Gears of War 3 was well voted for, many "Game of the Year" awards around the web didn't even have Gears 3 nominated.

My top 3 this year were Arkham City, Gears 3 and Deus Ex - nice to see all 3 titles up there (even as runners up)!

I'm really surprised gears of war 3 won best shooter. even more surprised MW3 didn't win or get runner up. Not that i'm upset about it. I just would have flipped the results of the shooter catagory

Nice to see Mortal Kombat make the list even though it's in the action category. I see people really like angry birds. It's practically on every mobile device type
