  1. poor Batman A.A. lol, got shut out

  2. @ Rich

    At least Rocksteady Studios won for Studio of the Year. In the end, that’s the award they probably deserved the most – Batman: Arkham Asylum was a success because of the way the studio approached the idea, as well as their dedication to making it authentic and immersive.

  3. I’m disappointed by a lot of these awards.

  4. WOW, what a sham, MW2 beat out Left 4 Dead 2 for best multiplayer??? PLEASE… I got sick of Modern Warfare’s multiplayer in the matter of like 2 weeks!!

    And how can they award Rocksteady the studio of the year then not give Arkham Asylum any awards. How does that make any sense? They are such a great studio but the game they made isn’t worthy of an award? Great logic there idiots.

    Arkham Asylum at the very least should have won best action adventure game, but I thought it should have won game of the year, but whatever.

    And how Mark Hamill didn’t win for best voice… Come on, those judges are on crack…

    Most likely Rocksteady didn’t pay them off to pick their game like the other studios obviously did…

    Award shows are such crap.

  5. ‘Spolsion Man should have won Best Independent Game, Scribblenauts should have won Best Handheld Game, and Best Cast should have gone to Ghost Busters… I love me some Bill Murray.

  6. Batman: Arkham Asylum won nothing? These awards mean absolutely nothing.

  7. Yep, you said it…

  8. 3rd person, and no, it totally sucks! lol

  9. These are my awards (Only about half of the awards)
