-> Great, no other nominations eh? What about Tap Studio, World of Tunes, Beatrider, Rock Band, etc?

Racing
->Fast & Furious got nominated while NFSU didn't? Seriously?

Sports
->No FIFA 10? Backbreaker football?

RPG
->Dungeon Hunter, Ravensword, The Quest, Inotia 2?

Strategy
-> No Civilization? Romance of the Three Kingdoms? Samurai Puzzle Battle?

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Star Defense? A game with no depth at all, which only shines with the 3d graphics, wins Strategy? Must be a joke. Civlization FTW!

Seems to me...

But IGN made their choices on GOTY way before the year ended; I guess that's how the big boys roll...

Gamespot and IGN have no clue what they're doing when it comes to i-games anyway. IGN only reviews about 5 a month, when there's at least 5 good games released every week sometimes everyday that are worth reviewing. They just miss way too many games.

I disagree with almost everything on that list.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten
