Pretty happy with all of those actually

The Game award was an obvious win for CoD.
:ditto: Good choices there on the whole.

Yeah but imo it doesn't deserve it at all. What factors do they even take into account when voting for these games? It's ridiculous...

Yeah as Illusionary say's the Game award is the only category open for public voting and therefore a win for CoD is almost inevitable. (it's won for the past 3 (?) years)

:facepalm:

No wonder. The Campaign is alright, Zombies is decent but Multiplayer especially when it came to the PS3 was terrible. The game basically rode on the back of how successful MW2 was.

You lot seen some of the custom gamemodes you can get in Starcraft, you can play starcraft in first person , as space battle and allsorts. Its just so scaleable.

I aint actually played Civ 5 though only Civ 4

It's a shame there aren't more strategy games, in that category it was pretty much between Civ 5 and Starcraft 2...it's probably my favourite genre of gaming but I still have to resort to Red Alert 2 for any decent action. Even now nothing comes close to a strategy game that's 11 years old....how bad is that?

Tbh I didn't think Civ stood a chance...guess I was wrong ^^

To be honest i worry about PC gaming altogether, the amount of ****ty console ports and lack of support from community that just wants to torrent everything is slowly killing it.
I guess if the money's in console gaming then that's where the developers will aim for, it's probably a matter of causality. I honestly can't say that any of my mates play games on their PC's apart from online games like WoW etc...

But before the 7th generation of consoles I played RTS and that was it, could keep me entertained for hours on end and it was more exciting than most of the games around nowadays. It's a bloody shame! I feel old for saying that too....:sigh:

I'd have liked to have seen AC Brotherhood win best multiplayer, it was so innovative and refreshing when I played it.
