Taking everything from Oblivion IV and turning it into something even more focused, Fallout 3 brings together a much more focused story and adds the integration with a personal character system that lets you experience the world in all it is simplicity. With a great combat system like the VATS and moreover a vast landscape that is still similarly unparalleled to Bethesda Softworks’ previous titles, Fallout 3 might be the first post-apocalyptic world that everyone wants to surprisingly be some part.

  1. 2010 for full list people!

  2. I’ll be there

  3. 1,000 People Initial, then a committee

  4. That was insane! loved it

  5. Amazing stuff

  6. I was WOW-ed

  7. Speechless actually. Wasn’t here until a couple of good months ago. Thanks

  8. Totally agree to all of them

  9. Best awards ever. No doubt. So it’s not just 4 or 5 dudes in a small office picking all of them? It’s 1 THOUSAND before E3 AND finally at E3…NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

  10. This was just so magnificent and munificent.

  11. Fallout 3 Action rocks. I love it when you go into the school, and you have to run with a timer.

  12. All the selections make sense. Not too sure about The Conduit (Wii) as runner-up!

  13. Amazing once again. This really deserves accolades

  14. Well more so than they already have I mean

  15. Agreed: Won’t spoil it here…but GAME OF SHOW = ABSOLUTELY true. Was Gears 2 playable ?

  16. Gears 2 would have won best 3rd person shooter no doubt had it been playable

  17. Can’t wait for GOTY Awards!!!

  18. This was just super cool

    Without any doubt in my mind. These are always the best awards I see every year

  19. I agree with MOST of these. Some I want to disagree with. Like LEFT 4 dead over fallout 3, but seeing both…it’s definitely hard. And I can see why 1,000 people partake in these WhatIfGaming Prizes every year

  20. Killzone 2 by far has the right tech. No doubt.

  21. Pretty good choices I think. Lots of great games coming out in the next year.

  22. 1,000 for preliminaries. No doubt a great choice.

  23. Really loved these awards. Awesome stuff guys
