I should stop speed reading some of the headlines as I seriously thought that it said RDR was getting a BAFTA mod. :?

I would have voted for Heavy Rain, but knowing that not enough people would vote for it to win, I voted for Red Dead Redemption instead.

I'm gonna do a Michael Pachter impression and predict the outcome:

1. Call of Duty Black Ops
2. Mass Effect 2
3. Red Dead Redemption

I did exactly the same! Both fantastic games though.

I think ME2 just edges RDR for me, both were brilliant but I've completed ME2 three times so it wins by default.

On the subject of Heavy Rain I don't even think I would've had it in my GOTY shortlist. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it but the writing wasn't the greatest, the 'twist' was stupid and some of the 'gameplay' was meh. Least in my opinion anyway. It deserves praise for trying something different though

JAAAAAAAASON :wink:

I'm sorry but how is Call of Duty Black Ops even a contender against those other titles?

Yeah I've been meaning to buy a Wii again just to play it, it's on my list after I finish building a PC and find a new flat. Granted it's low on the list but it's there :)

Hmm... maybe that's why it won't win. Because we all say "Oh, it won't win! I'll vote Red Dead instead!" :lol:

Games like Limbo and Heavy Rain should win something for being a bit different and new. But we all know that the teens will vote for CoD Black Ops.

For me its between Galaxy 2 and RDR. I think RDR just shaves it for pure enjoyment all the way through the long single player and for making me go through a time when all I watched was Westerns I was that into the world!!.

BTW Not sure how Black Op's is on there though??
