Awards are somewhat moot from my perspective but the winners here seem to be the choices I would have picked if I were so inclined. Nice to see Flower get some airtime (pun intended).



Interesting to see that Xbox360's exclusive best game was Left 4 Dead 2, a rather bland sequel to a great first game. The fact it was competing with ODST for bland sequel of the year that is an Xbox exclusive best game makes it even more apparent the Microsoft will need to focus more on this in 2010.



Best Horror Game: Dead Space (didn't they have this category in prior years?)
