I was sort of expecting the Best Game to be Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and, admittedly, I was a tad disappointed when Batman was announced the winner, but at least Modern Warfare 2 didn’t win…

I’d also like to note that the GAME award was based on public voting, so really it’s no surprise that Modern Warfare 2 won that to be honest.

Next up: E3!

    Very surprised by Arkham getting best game, it is very well deserved, I think Uncharted 2 has so many GOTY awards it shouldn’t count anymore.

  • Glad that MW2 didn’t win any real awards… WAY overhyped. The only award I have a real problem with is best Family and Social Game. There were TONS that were better in that category than Sports Resort. That was a great game, but there were still better. Oh, and best sports game should’ve been Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10.
