TA Forum Poster's Choice Awards of the Year (multi-category) - the preliminary post!

Let's collectively decide the top games of 2010, based on a poll of the forum posters!

Since it's rather late in the year we'll have to do it quick (and a bit sloppy). Let's take about 1 day to decide on all the categories, and then maybe another day to nominate. Let's shoot to present the results a week from today (Monday Jan 3, 2011)

Suggested categories:

Best Game (Overall)
Best Racing
Best RPG
Best Retrogame
Best Puzzler
Best FPS
Most Controversial
Best Developer
Best Tiny Dev
Best/Most Promising New Developer (appeared in 2010)
Best New Genre
Best Publisher
Best Graphics
Best Sound
Best Use of iPhone tech
Best Innovation
Surprise of the Year (game)
Disappointment of the Year
Best Non-iOS mobile Game of the Year
Best Console Game of the Year
Biggest Anticipation for 2011

Let's keep it kinda simple and concise, but with a couple curveballs in there to keep in interesting.

Feel free to spout out ideas in here, for categories/nominees. I'll turn the results into a poll.

IMPORTANT: If someone else is really gung-ho to do this, feel free to mention to me if you'd like to take over the reigns as I am awfully busy with "real work" - otherwise I will be happy to collate things and spit them out into a properly-presented poll.

I'll abstain from voting/suggesting any nominations, personally.

EDIT: As I notice a sticky right above this "TA's post for game of the year!" Anyway it's still fun/interesting to do the other categories, so again, shout out in here if interested.

Guys, Guys. He just tried to put a new spin on it. I know its old to see more GOTY stuff, but give him some slack, he wanted to put up the effort in making one, it still is a good concept. If you don't like it don't post.

Lol!

Seriously what's up with the hating people? And why are y'all posting about off topic stuff?

I think Most controversial is probably aralon
Best puzzler cut the rope/trainyard/aqueduct/helising's but if I had to choose one I'd say aqueduct!
Surprise of the year game might be lego Harry potter! (seriously wasn't expecting WB to give the iOS a chance)
