    World of Goo and PvZ was released way back in 2009, i don't understand, is this awards for games released in 2010? or games being played by voters in 2010?

    oh wait, PvZ is released on xbox in 2010, probably the only good strategy game on the console. let's forget about Starcraft 2, SupCom 2 and Civ 5, they are PC only.

    sorry to say this, democracy failed. it's most consolfied list ever.

    What exactly is the qualification for downloadable game of the year? Surely that's pretty much every game released now?

    oh right. i see. that makes sense, will expect better strategy games to be voted next year.

    i think by downloadable game, it means xbox live arcade games, not retail games on Steam.

    Damn glad to see Mass Effect 2 do so well.

    I also had the pleasure of playing COD:MW2 recently and I have to agree it's the best FPS, it's one fun game!

    Well plants vs zombies is a really good game if you ask me.
    Civ 5 is a beautifull game and SCII an ok game (never played multiplayer as I really suck at it).

    But as posted before, 2010 was a slow year for strategy...

    But believe me, I am a HUGE Fallout Fanboy (FO 1 & 2), And I am really happy to see what obsidian did to new vegas. Still NOT FO but starting to get back to its roots. Hell, even some of the music scores are from FO 2 :D

    Anyway, FO: New Vegas or Mass Effect?... Hmmmm I think I would go with New Vegas
    Actually I don't see ME2 as a RPG anyways...

    I wonder if Bit-Tech will re-review League of Legends like they suggested they would when they reviewed it in its early form. It has changed greatly since then.

    To qualify as a game, they had to be released between May 2009 and May 2010, according to the BBC. Personally I thought World of Goo was earlier than May 2009.
