World of Warcraft though Wii Sports is a very VERY close second. Some of the titles on that list don't need to be there, like Bioshock and Batman. They should be replaced with Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4 as both of those games are far more influential and had more of an impact on the games industry. Mass Effect 2 and Red Dead Redemption are arguable but there are many more games that I feel could also take their places.

Mario Galaxy was great but it had a terrible camera. The level designs in Galaxy 2 went a long way to fixing it but the problems were still there.

I went with Bioshock. Most fun I have ever had with a game and I have never looked at games the same way since. Most of these are fantastic choices though.

PM me to add me to WiiU, PSN, Steam, or 3DS. Always up for a Brawl matchup too!

obligatory "no mario galaxy". I'm not going to vote for windwaker since it's probably one of my least favorite 3D Zelda games (i like it, but i like the other 3D zeldas more). Overall the list is missing better games

Wind Waker hands down! (Not going to get anywhere close to the top though since it's "gay and for babies")

really? RDR? please, It looked nice, and had great presentation, but I didn't find it a great a game at all.

Also, and obviously no Mario Galaxy? They probabaly left it out to get hits, and more comments I think.

No Mario Galaxy one or two, no Xenoblade Chronicles or The Last Story, no Uncharted 2, and no Resident Evil 4.

The voting list has fail written all over it. Not even going to bother with voting.

On a side note, anybody notice how the Spike VGAs were exempt of Nintendo titles in...oh, just about every category that's relevant?

Since I'm a JRPG fan none of my personal faves are there, but out of those it's gotta be Portal or Shadow of the Colossus (both fantastic games).

If Metroid Prime were on there I'd probably vote for that. Game sitll gives me chills (the good kind) just thinking about it. Everything about it was amazing.

Shadow of the Colossus or Wind Waker out of those choices. I'd probably take Wind Waker just because I've put more hours into it.

Missing some great games, but aside from Wii Sports (and games I've never played), it's not a bad list. Just lacking.

Probably gonna go with Shadow of the Colossus.

@motherbra1n

Yes. The amount of games they could have chosen from Wii or Nintendo in place of Wii Sports is immense.

@GameCollector

While I agree it is missing a lot of games, I have to call you out on the last part.

You know why the lists are exempt of Nintendo titles?

What freaking Nintendo titles came out this year that would be worth putting on there?

Did you honestly see a GOTY Nintendo title this year? And I'm not counting Xenoblade (they didn't bring out The Last Story, XSEED did) since it's actually a 3 year old game. What games came out that you think deserve to be in all these categories you didn't name? Mario Party 9? Some ports (Kirby/Pikmin)? A few good DS/3DS games?

Nintendo didn't do a whole lot of anything this year that deserves awards aside from bringing Xenoblade over finally.

@majestik12

You kidding? I thought Red Dead was one of the greatest games in the past few years. D:

It may just be me, but I feel like none of those games really deserve to be on that list.

I said they didn't have many titles that were released on Nintendo systems in categories where they were very relevant.

Best handheld game? They put one 3DS title up against 3 Vita titles. And that title was, you guessed it, NSMB2, pitting it up against Gravity Rush, Sound Shapes, and LittleBigPlanet Vita whilst passing up everything else that was offered on the 3DS from Kid Icarus: Uprising to Resident Evil: Revelations. Best original score? Xenoblade Chronicles didn't even make the list, but CoDBLoPs2, Journey (that really overrated PSN game...wasn't even aware it had music to be honest.) and Max Payne 3 made it.

I'm just saying in general, the whole thing seems a little one-sided and just poor choices in quite a few categories. Like Mass Effect 3 for best RPG. I always thought that game was a TPS with RPG elements...like The Legend of Zelda is an action/adventure title with RPG elements. :?

As for the on-topic vote, they're passing up quite a few amazing titles that've been released in the past decade, and really need to just make the voting area...larger, ya know? Just make the list longer and add more choices. They're passing up some rather amazing titles in one area or another.

I went with Portal, but Galaxy 2, RE4, Brawl, Melee, Metroid Prime take your pick, Monster Hunter Tri and I don't know, a couple of HANDHELD games probably deserve to be on that list!
