  1. How are L4D2, AC2, and MW2 nominated, they just came out.

  2. If MW2 beats Batman in ANY category they are both nominated in, then this award show means squat…

  3. Same with studio, Rocksteady better win over Infinity Ward…

  4. How is Borderlands not up for best 360 game? I liked L4D2 and all, but it was not better than Borderlands.

  5. things i feel strongly about.
    Best Game Based on a Movie/TV Show:
    should be chronicles of riddick. multiplayer was bad but single player had to have been my second fav. campain for any game behing only escape from butcher bay.also
    Best Performance by a Human Male:
    no question Vin diesel his performance was amazing agian. nailed it better then in the movies.
    another thing i was surprised when i saw luke skywalker voiced joker. i new he did the cartoon joker but it never ocured to me he was in AA

  6. Well Hudson, Batman was the same voice actor from the cartoon, Harley Quinn was the same voice actor from the cartoon, and so was The Joker… Don’t be surprised if in the sequel, if Two-Face is in it, they have the same voice actor for him too. What I don’t understand is why they didn’t use the same voice actor for Commissioner Gordon… I guess he was too friendly sounding, they wanted a rougher sounding guy, lol.

  7. ken j
    maybe he didnt want to do it
