Great list, some of them I haven't played (the handhelds), but for the most part I agree. Funny how CoD WaW took it for Nintendo when that was a gimped out version compared to the other consoles.

The Nintendo award for CoD is just hilarious but the rest of the list isn't bad. Fallout 3 was amazing and I really enjoyed Gears 2 and GTA Chinatown Wars (actually I'm playing this right now but it's easily the best handheld game I've played in a while)
I didn't care much for Killzone 2 despite the awesome graphics, LBP would have been a better choice but apparently they wanted to spread out the awards.

Oh and MGS Touch is ridiculously bad like most big name iPhone games. There are some gems on the platform but certainly not this.

This list makes no sense... KZ2 came out in 2009, everything else came out in 2008.

As well as the 360 and PS3 both having Fallout 3 and both had a different game for GoTY.

It's probably similar to the other one, where I think the cut off was March.

Personally, Fallout 3 is a better game than Uncharted 2. It offers more, and is certainly "smarter". However, Fallout 3 didn't come out this year, so Uncharted 2 is pretty much the shoe in.

IF Demon's Souls didnt come out in 2009 I'd agree. Nothing is gonna take GOTY away from Sony this year though, that's for sure.

I'm confused, the year isn't even over yet.
