    Can anybody tell me what is wrong with some of the nominees?
    They all suck?

    The only ones i agree with are:

    SSX 3 (EA Big) Game of the Year---its a really good game... but not game of the year.... B's pic... Raven Shield

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 (EA Sports) Best Sports Game this i agree with.

    SSX3 (EA Big) Best Music


    Command & Conquer: Generals Zero Hour (EA)Best PC Game Also a great game... but not the best

    Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield (Ubisoft) Best First-Person Action Game


    Half-Life 2 Most Anticipated Game... this goes without saying.

    all in all i dont like this list... I saw the ad for it alot while watching Joe Schmo....which was a great show.... but this is just sad
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Mudshark got it right, a lot of the games on the list havent even been released yet, and the ones that have, havent been out for that long. I can name 5 titles on the list right off the top of my head that havent even been out for 3 months, yet they get nominated for awards? XIII got a nod for "best Animation".. its not even out yet!!! Its not going to be released until the 27th of this month.

    Now dont get me started on the "Best game based on a movie" because half of the nominee's arent even movies.


    I gotta see this now, I really do. I want to laugh when a game that hasnt even been released yet wins.

    I disagree B;

    Game of the Year should be Vice City. Its a great game and would still be a great game if it didnt have all the voilence in it (but the voilence does make the game).

    Most Addictive Game...? WTF kind of catagory is that? And why isnt Counter Strike in it? Or Battlefield? Or every game ever created?

    Best Sports: Madden, hands down.

    Best Action: I dont agree with any of the nominees, my pick is Vice City.

    Best Animation: Sly Cooper and the Thievious Racoonous.

    Best Driving: I dont like driving games, so I will have to pick the game that I know and that I like which is going to be Simpsons Hit and Run.

    Best Game Based on a Movie: I'm gonna have to "Enter the Matrix" (even though it was bug filled and wasnt all that great) or Tron 2.0. I cant judge the Harry Potter game since it isnt even out yet (and its not based off of a movie), the LOTRs game isnt even out yet, Hulk sucked, Rebel Strike and KOTOR arent based off of movies but books, Nightfire isnt a movie, Emperor's Tomb isnt a movie, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sucked.

    Best Music: Tony Hawk's Underground, hands down the best music. A big nod goes to Vice City though. The reason why I picked THUG is because the music goes with the game.

    Best Performance by a Human: ... huh?

    Best PC: Think you can try to pick a game that has been out longer then a month? Come on, these games just got released for christ's sake.

    Best Online Game: Probably Battlefield.. I guess... why not.. Anarchy is good.. I guess.. even though I dont know anybody who plays it, EOA sucks, FF11 was just released Weds., NWN is ok, but its not my kind of game, the Sims is just plain evil and everybody who likes it should be burned at the stake, and Galaxies is too new to really judge if its any good.

    Best Handheld: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow hands down then best GBA game ever.

    Best Fighting: SC2 with out a doubt.

    Best FPS: GR: Island Thunder... now before you jump down my throat for selling out to a GR game. I am only picking it because its the only game on the damn list thats been out longer then 2 months.

    Best Fantasy: Zelda

    Most Anticipated: Half Life 2.. dur.

    Thats my story, and I'm sticking to it.
