Killzone 2 has to be game of the year, it is simply awesome, followed by LBP.

Will have a gander at the nominee’s when I get home and do some voting. No doubt I will vote for Uncharted 2 as most anticipated game as I’m itching for it even more now that I’ve had a taste with the multiplayer Beta. Can’t wait for story mode, they just better not kill off Elena!

Slightly off topic, but I find it odd how there’s no major information (reviews, previews, etc.) following Prototype which is due out Friday. Watched some trailers for it this weekend and think it looks amazing. If any one behind the blog has any scoops or info on this title I think it’s definatley worth a post, seems to have gotten lost in the E3 shuffle thus far.

MGS 4 pwns every game out there, sorry :P

If Killzone + MGS4 don’t win awards, I’m going to start cracking skulls xD
Ultimate game of the year was a tough one, toss-up between MGS4 and Killzone.
Killzone definitely has to get multiplayer shooter of the year though, no other game comes close! Especially none of the ones shortlisted.


No possibility to vote for WipEout HD, then no vote… I also enjoyed Little Big Planet and Rock Band 2 a lot

Just voted!
Hope we clean out!

If there is any good left in this world then it should be MGS4 for best game, Killzone 2 best online and Uncharted 2 one to watch!

Placed my votes a few days ago, just looking at the shortlist shows how great it has been to be a gamer for the last year and that trend seems to be continuing aswell.


@ Sketch – long gone are the days when we could waggle our joysticks in the company of others :D Kempston Competition Pro Joysticks FTW!!

and my votes.. FALLOUT3 in every category.

@ PabloAmigo – sorry, no can show, HDTV is dead, no gaming for me for at least a good couple of weeks!!

Killzone2 FTW!

Just voted.

Valkyria Chronicles gets my vote every time. Such a fantastic title.

voted; oh well, i dont consider myself a sony fanboy, sony just provides quality and i’ve been happy with sony ever since i was a little boy with his first playstation..they’ve always respected their customers (which is an important issue imo, microsoft has no respect for their customers at all..) and we’ve always respected them back, times may be hard sometimes for sony (like now with the ps3) but i’ll stick by them, till death do us part ;p:d:d I LOVE U SONY ^^


I voted, good luck to all those in the vote, be interesting to find out the winners on the 30th
