Wow, these awards are terrible. I guess a buggy, crash prone game that got worse with patches it what constitutes game of the year these days.

If you look at the nominees its pretty obvious these are BS. They just nominated Fallout 3, GTA IV, Little Big Planet, and a few others for every category.

Pro tip #2: Opinions vary; we're not all alike so don't act like this is the first time a bad decision has been made. It's both hilarious yet confusing to see you guys get your panties in a knot

This isn't a regular bad decision. These are mind bogglingly bad.
