    That’s a hard enough selection to make guesses about.

    Infamous 2nd?

    Don’t get me wrong Sucker Punch are great, and the gameplay looks good, but it’s nothing special. The animations look ‘Sucker Punch’ingly good, obviously.

    But I would have put some other before it.

    I am anticipating LBP… not that I’m wondering why I can’t vote for it…………………………………………

    Odd that Heavy Rain’s on there but not LBP.

    Glad someone else agrees. I’ve looked at the rules and can’t figure out why it would be missing… surely it stood a great chance of winning. Can anyone from Future Publishing explain why it isn’t there? Did it not make it in the short lists?

    Concerning LBP, maybe it’s a matter of release date or so?

    Strange enough, RE5 is both in “One to watch” and “Most Wanted” categories, whereas LBP is only in the former.

    I think it won enough last year, that’s all.

    Maybe the “one to watch” award doesnt mean it is wanted…. maybe you have to watch it out the corner of your eye, perhaps with mild disinterest, pity or perhaps even a hint of disdain…..

    Why else would you have a One to watch award and a Most Wanted award?

    It seems like a really odd award to give imo. It’s more of a pat on the back for the marketing teams than actually about the game surely?

    “And the award for Something I’ve Only Seen at Several Removes goes to…”
