    Mass Effect 2 ofc, can't see a reason why I would even consider the others.

    I think Red Dead is a worthy alternative surely? I agree that the rest are hardly awe-inspiring though

    I'm only partly through ME2 (have assembled my team but not gone through the omega 4 relay). The amount of available game play - all of it top quality is outstanding especially when you consider the amount of voice acting which must have been done for all the possible permeations.

    If CODBLOPS wins we will no longer have to wait for the zombie apocalypse. It's already begun. Resistance was apparently futile.

    Black ops is going to win. The sheep will vote, and they will vote poorly.

    If it goes to any game other than Red Dead or ME2 we can safely say the decline in gaming culture has hit an all time low. Worst bit is, I know Cod or Halo is going to win.

    ME2.

    EA get three nominations as do MS. There really is a lack of competition these days.

    MS only got two. And one of them is half and half.

    So more like one and a half really.

    @SpAceman: Exactly! I could come up with at least a dozen titles that would be more worth of recognition. Sadly, the mainstream will only recognise box office sales from brick and morter shops, rather than look at truly innovative, yet also hugely successfuly titles.

    Xbox live Arcade. Isn't that owned by MS?

    I hope COD does not win (even though that is the only game that I have from that list), purely because it is a major rip-off and a shoddy product. By shoddy I mean it was rushed into release with problems and these problems are taking months to sort out (which is a trademark of Treyarch).

    But sadly like last year when MW2 won, black ops will probably do the same, and only reason is that it sold a ton more units than any other game and as such will have a load more people (or sheep as others have referred to them) voting for it

    Always take awards done via public voting with a lorry full pinch of salt

    Nothing there worth voting for.
    Although CODBLOPS will probably win because of the sheep factor.
