    Judge Ballots

    This is the awards I was waiting for... I wanted to see what the awards/standings would be if all the game critics were to vote. All the votes come from all the magazines/sites/newspapers.

    Bioshock deserved it. It's been my GOTY for awhile now. With my recent purchase of Ratchet and Clank: TOD, my list has changed.

    1. Bioshock
    2. Galaxy
    3. Call of Duty 4
    4. The Orange Box
    5. Rock Band
    6. Mass Effect
    7. Ratchet and Clank: TOD
    8. Halo 3
    9. God of War 2
    10. Assassin's Creed

    Wow. Even the PS3 had 5 times as many games on the list as the Wii. Ouch.

    The Orange Box is dreadful on the PS3... I'll give the PS3 4, but in no way 5.

    Actually, the fast facts were probably more like this:

    Xbox 360: 6
    PS3: 2
    Wii: 1
    PS2: 1

    *Going by better reviewed versions of each game

    Boo, terrible list. Rock Band was a game that I extremely disliked and God of War II was way too short. Super Mario Galaxy should have been number one.

    a lot of those critics dont deserve the right to vote. yahoo games, USAtoday,TIME. PSM, games for windows and PCgamers is biased.

    EDIT: also they should award games for seperate systems. putting them together is very biased. if they did the games with a specific system im sure super mario galaxy would have been #2.

    How do you figure? It has 5 award winning games. It's not hard to figure out; just look at the list.

    Huh? First, it's only fair to compare them all together. And even if they didn't, how would SMG only get #2? Only 1 Wii game even made the list.

    @Atomheart
    the orange box, call of duty4 and rock band are all multiplatform. i think that they should have picked a sytem that the game was good on instead of counting all of them. its biased and unfair. bioshock is #1 and its on one platform so if they did the voting with single platforms then super mario galaxy would be #2. do you get what i mean?

    Bioshock is actually is on two systems (if you would call the PC one), not one.

    Not all games are the same on each platform. Some have more features than others.

    Hmmm, duno what happened to my post. Hopefully it wasnt deleted as I didn't say anything bad o_O

    Anyway thas, are you saying multiplatformers should not be counted in GOTY awards? Are you saying it should be only 1st party exclusives? For example, Mass Effect, Uncharted and SMG? Because thats kind of like a big "**** you" to developers who make games for more than one console. Every game should have a chance. Its not like a game thats multiplatform is automatically better because its on 2+ consoles. I can't see a game having an advantage from being on more than one console because its still the same game.

    im not saying multiplatform games shouldnt be on that list, but they should really pick a system which it was best on. they collected votes from all consoles for a game. in the old days of gaming this would be fine but now, each platform has its own features and some are missing them.

    The problem with these judges are they're usually men ages 20-40. So if they see a game like Mario (which looks like a cute lil cartoony character) they usually don't get into the game and give it low scores. Some of them also hate the wii period and some them likes just straight up FPS types of games. But if the judges were different ages, men and women, who likes all type of genres, which game do you think will win?
