    GTAIV

    What. A. Joke.

    I don't care if MGS4, LBP, Gears 2, Far Cry 2 won it, GTAIV should not have won anything but over-rated Game of the Year.

    I think Im one of few people that honestly enjoyed GTAIV, but then again, I dont have time to constantly play video games....so when I play one its something worth my time......and I also enjoyed Assassins Creed last year...so I guess they just match my taste.

    To me GTAIV was a beautiful masterpiece...even though there will never be the perfect game.

    GTA4 was fun, but it definitely wasn't the best game of the year.

    It's a fine game and I'll play it again eventually (with trophy support), but heck not much has changed from GTA3 to GTAIV. It is very repetitive.

    It's a safe pick because everyone likes it but at the same time most will admit it's not the best.

    Fallout 3 is easily better.

    I think MGS4 is GOTY, but I would have also accepted GROW2, LBP, Fable 2, Fallout 3, etc etc. There was nothing remarkable in GTAIV, except perhaps its own hype.

    Just a guess but I'm sure Madden won sports game of the year. Even though NHL 09 is far superior.

    The way fanboys are these days they probably wanted to pick one that would appease both PS3 and 360 fanboys.

    Dont get me wrong, I understand why GTA wasnt as good as the hype to most....but I dont go by a games hype. I take in the small things, which GTA had a boatload of in this installment.

    Playing in an open world, almost exact replica of NY is just amazing to me...and I felt that GTA4 did for this generation what GTA3 did for the last...took the genre to the next level.

    But if anything I would of said Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare should of been GOTY...I dont have one friend that didnt have that game and and didnt rave about it.
