    Interesting that while GOTY (which I agree with) Uncharted 2 didn’t actually win its own genre category, losing to AC2 (which I enjoyed but which was certainly not as good as Uncharted 2).

    Guess they wanted to really spread the results around.

    In what way is Flower an independent game? It was published by Sony.

    @p_c: heh heh!

    The results overall don’t seem too mentalist until you get down to Best Performance By A Human Female. I mean, seriously? That’s the best they could come up with? I surmise they just wanted to get Megan Fox on the show to attract the droolers?

    #5 5 years ago

    You spelt ‘worst’ wrong on the multiplayer game award.

  7. Robo_1

    Yup, I think for video game awards, the whole performance category is just fluff. What’s with the whole “human” thing too? Did they have many other species up for an award?

    #7 5 years ago
  8. Freek

    If it was a serious awards show, the best performances would have also gone to the UC2 cast.

    #8 5 years ago
  9. Blerk

    Seriously, how did Nolan North not win that? He’s been in every other game this year.

    #9 5 years ago

    It’s criminal that the Wolverine game got best cast.

    That was by in large deserved by U2.

    #10 5 years ago
  11. NiceFellow

    Uncharted 2 had probably best voice work easily – although I would have to give Male performance to Mark Hamil for the Joker.

    North did a great job, and the Joker was arguably more of a supporting role – but Hamil’s voice work was superbly nuanced and delivered, simply stellar. And a lot better than Wolverine, that’s for sure.

    #11 5 years ago
  12. Agent 47

    Plants Vs Zomies didn’t win anything? Nooooooooo

    #12 5 years ago
  13. Bulk Slash

    Megan Fox for best female performance? She didn’t deserve to be a nominee.

    I’m amazed Modern Warfare 2 didn’t sweep every category, I look forward to trying Uncharted 2 when I get my PS3 for Christmas…

    #13 5 years ago
  14. Gekidami

    Its pretty clear that the awards for voice actors and cast went to whose the most famous rather then most talented.

    as ive written in the liveblog:

    UC2 Goty but not best action adventure?!
    i mean this is not even subjective.. argue what u want, at the end of the day its logicaly false..

    didnt play transformers, but played Wolverine. Best male voice acting?
    FUCKING ROFL!! i mean, even if jackman performed well, the thing is noone can tell coz of the horrible, horrible sound mixing..
    And from the parts i could understand i can tell, nolan north performed way better, no doubt. havent played B:AA so i cant say something about hamill.

    problem about vga is, everyone and his dog can vote there (multiple times if he wants). Some only got xbox, some only PS3, some dont even have any of them..
    So its extremly biased from start..
    they should seriously reconsider their system seeing those results..

    oh and:
    Best Individual Sports Game: UFC 2009 Undisputed
    isnt spike broadcasting UFC quite massively?
    someone else smells the coincedence?

    this show is a joke. They spread everything around to keep everyone happy that’s all.

    #16 5 years ago
  17. Gekidami

    “UC2 Goty but not best action adventure?!”

    Beyoncé got video of the year at the MTV Music Awards but Taylor Swift won best female video… OMG! Kanye West was right! It makes no sense!

    #17 5 years ago
  18. The Hindle

    Yep Uncharted 2 will clear up the goty awards now. Much deserved i say.

    #18 5 years ago
  19. Digital Forge

    Surprised more people didn’t look at Mark Hamill for the best male voice.

    The only female voice I can remember distinctly was that of Harley Quinn from Batman AA, come to think of it the game had superb voice all round.

    Glad Uncharted 2 won GOTY though.

    #19 5 years ago
  20. Freek

    Mark Hamil isn’t a relevant celebrity or a hot chick, so obviously he cannot win.

    #20 5 years ago
  21. Eregol

    Nolan North or Mark Hamill didn’t win best male performance?
    What’s up with that?

    Congrats to Naughty Dog for Game of the Year though.
    Expect a Game of the Year Edition within 10 months.

  22. No_PUDding

    God of War III is most anticipted by who?

    #22 5 years ago
  23. The Hindle

    By millions of people Pud

    #23 5 years ago
  24. Blerk

    Lots of people, it would appear. But not me, I voted for Red Dead Redemption.

    #24 5 years ago
  25. dirigiblebill

    +1 Red Dead Redemption vote. Game looks awesome.

    I’d have picked Batman: AA for best action-adventure.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. bobbymington

    @22 by me!

    I’m buying a ps3 tonight, purely so come this March i can play it

    #26 5 years ago
  27. Gekidami

    You dont own a PS3, ofcourse you arent anticipating GoW3 Blerk. :D
    Cant wait myself.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. DarkElfa

    That Batman got looked over is an injustice.

    #28 5 years ago
  29. Gekidami

    What could have Batman won though? I’d say its a really good action-adventure game but theres more action and adventure in AC2.

    #29 5 years ago
  30. Psychotext

    It could have realistically won “Best Performance By A Human Male” or “Best Voice”.

    (You know what I mean, it would have been something anyway)

    #30 5 years ago
  31. Gekidami

    I guess thats true though i was thinking more about the game itself rather then the voice work. But yeah; Mark Hamil should have won best performance.

    #31 5 years ago
  32. blackdreamhunk

    i agree with dragon age as best pc game of the year. best rpg too as well.

    #32 5 years ago
  33. Hunam

    So, I finally sit down to enjoy Uncharted 2. The first level, this is cool… ok a few glitches here in animation including Nathan Flying from the bottom of the pit onto a chair, thats ok though… wow, now Alistair and Morrigan are talking to me… Shit, I mean some guy and some woman with mysteries, whats that I can’t hear you over the sound of my dad coming around to bother me. Ok, back on track FUCK IT now my brother has come in interrupting the cut scene. Fuck it. I’ll do it live.

    First 20 minutes with Uncharted 2 utterly ruined. What a fucking chore.

    Fucking Awesome! I’m sooooo glad Uncharted 2 got GOTY! Thoroughly deserved.

    #35 5 years ago
  36. Hunam

    Worse now, dad’s brother and wife have turned up, the two nosiest people on gods green earth. Maybe I’ll attempt to start it at 9. I wish to god I could afford my own place, damn recession.
