How did your votes stack up? I know that some feel the VGA’s hold no bearing on real video game awards because of VGA’s in the past, but this year I would have to say it is a pretty good assessment of this years games. I am still a little sore Marcus didn’t win, or Gears itself, but it was still a fair showing.

Congratulations to all the winners!
