    Best PS3 full Game- I have to go with PlayStation Allstars because I just got Borderlands 2 this past Sunday and haven’t played it yet. I’m sure my choice will change when I play it though.

    Best PSN game- I heard Journey is awesome but haven’t bought/played it yet. Walking Dead is my choice until I try Journey. I hope they have a demo of it.

    Best PSN exclusive- I can’t vote didn’t play any of them, but I’m sure Journey will win.

    Best Vita game- Gravity Rush

    Best PSP game- N/A my PSP is officially retired collecting dust (until I want to play SNES/SEGA games on the run) ;)

    Best PS Classic- Duh San Andreas!

    Best PlayStation mini- Ha! who plays those crappy things?

    Best Move Game- Ummm come on guys where’s Sorcery?

    Best Competitive MP- N/A KillZone 3 for me. Love Operations

    Best PlayStation indie- Gotta say Sound Shapes. He deserves it most. That Game Company is already well known.

    @1: There is no demo for Journey. One of the rare cases where a demo would spoil the fun. The game is short, but it’s worth every cent.
