    Woah maquerel. These are amazing. Since i visited the site in only about 2006ish, I didn’t get to see too many awards

  2. adurioubmidam July 21st, 2008 3:25 PM

    Wow awesome awards. Never knew they were so rigorous

  3. adurioubmidam July 21st, 2008 3:26 PM

    Loved them. Amazing new logo. I remember the square ones from 2004. Those were the days!

  4. adurioubmidam July 21st, 2008 3:26 PM

    A lot of amazing categories. Heavy rain was playable? wtf awesome

  5. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:28 PM

    Definitely awesome awards. I always put full faith in these, but definitelyd ecide on my own

  6. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:28 PM

    I agree with most as well

  7. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:29 PM

    Loved all of these. Still reading, it’s amazing. 1,000 Nominees. I definitely know that not all of them can be from E3, but most of the analysts are thats for sure

  8. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:29 PM

    Rigorous is the right word. Crazily rigorous

  9. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:30 PM

    I doubt the names will be revealed for the committee. Lol BRIBERY!

  10. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:30 PM

    God thats awesome

  11. wiseguy272 July 21st, 2008 3:30 PM

    I agree with all of them as well. Would have liked more PC runner ups though.

  12. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:32 PM

    Without a doubt, huge news that these are up now

  13. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:32 PM

    L4D got a lot of wins, definite buy here now

  14. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:33 PM

    Love to see console best, but I’m damn sure that won’t be easy. These are quite possibly one of the BIGGEST and largest awards ever conducted through years. I remember it started with about 100 back in 2003ish before the new site structure.

  15. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:33 PM

    Sucks the database for those were wiped, but ever since 2006 and on, these are the sole awards anyone should be looking at for sure

  16. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:33 PM

    So impressive

  17. antaraa July 21st, 2008 3:33 PM

    Kudos and extreme Bravo’s to the winners and select nominees.

  18. JoshDargie July 21st, 2008 3:34 PM

    Definitely important news here. Going to start reading now

  19. JoshDargie July 21st, 2008 3:34 PM

    Killzone 2 is a given. I played it at Sony public day event. It was spectacular.

  20. JoshDargie July 21st, 2008 3:35 PM

    Overall most of these had to have been difficult to choose from. Some don’t even have runner-up’s.

  21. JoshDargie July 21st, 2008 3:35 PM

    LittleBigPlanet, so want to play that video game argh!

  22. JoshDargie July 21st, 2008 3:36 PM

    Congrats to runners-up. Not easy

  23. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:37 PM

    Def hard to get

  24. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:37 PM

    L4Dead of course

  25. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:37 PM

    I want to see the entire list for nominees. I wonder which ones didn’t make it

  26. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:37 PM

    Some probably came pretty close.

  27. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:38 PM

    Oh wow. Didn’t know C&C 3 RA was going to be that good. Awesome

  28. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:38 PM

    A lot of this would make Media Molecule happy hahah

  29. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:38 PM

    But they definitely deserve it that’s for sure

  30. PCEnthusiast July 21st, 2008 3:38 PM

    Love WhatIfGaming, and love the nomination proccess.

    Thanks guys

  31. Apollodorus July 21st, 2008 3:39 PM

    Amazing reviews/previews/and awards

  32. Apollodorus July 21st, 2008 3:39 PM

    Wonderful selections. 1,000 invitational forms isn’t too difficult considering traffic these guys get

  33. IBKING91 July 21st, 2008 3:47 PM

    Just totally amazing

  34. IBKING91 July 21st, 2008 3:47 PM

    Revolutionary in fact

  35. IBKING91 July 21st, 2008 3:47 PM

    Love the process. It’s basically the same it was about 2 years ago

  36. IBKING91 July 21st, 2008 3:47 PM

    but the designs are different and I’m loving it

  37. IBKING91 July 21st, 2008 3:49 PM

    Best awards ever in HISTORY. Thanks

  38. Memoryclocker July 21st, 2008 3:49 PM

    They’ve only been around 5-6 years. Saying history is a long stretch !

  39. Memoryclocker July 21st, 2008 3:49 PM

    Definitely agree to all the runner-ups and winners. No doubt here

  40. Memoryclocker July 21st, 2008 3:50 PM

    then again 1,000 people overall chose these. I can’t really say shit lol!

  41. Memoryclocker July 21st, 2008 3:50 PM

    Love these awards for life. Have loved them, will love them. Thanks again WhatIfGaming.

    You guys aren’t messing around

  42. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 3:56 PM

    Well dude, even though 1,000 chose these games, they aren’t all from E3 unnecessarily. Some were played MONTHS in advance. Keep that in mind!

  43. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 3:56 PM

    1,000 is great for months in advance. But in 3 days? Dobutful. Read it. they wrote its been in advance. So : )

  44. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 3:57 PM

    Looks amazing for sure. true say

  45. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 3:57 PM

    No doubt about these

  46. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 3:58 PM

    Unbelievable

  47. FreedomPhantom July 21st, 2008 4:00 PM

    WOAH! DIDN’T Even seee that category winner coming. NICE

  48. Monolith2001 July 21st, 2008 4:05 PM

    Definitely impressive once again. Didn’t know this was going on for months in advance

  49. PCTechNerd July 21st, 2008 4:07 PM

    This pretty much confirms awesomeness

  50. PCTechNerd July 21st, 2008 4:08 PM

    Amazing selections

  51. PCTechNerd July 21st, 2008 4:08 PM

    2010 for full list people!

  52. PCTechNerd July 21st, 2008 4:08 PM

    I’ll be there

  53. PCTechNerd July 21st, 2008 4:08 PM

    1,000 People Initial, then a committee

  54. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:11 PM

    That was insane! loved it

  55. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:11 PM

    Amazing stuff

  56. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:11 PM

    I was WOW-ed

  57. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:11 PM

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

  58. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:11 PM

    Totally agree to all of them

  59. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:12 PM

    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!!

  60. venkatezh July 21st, 2008 4:13 PM

    This was just so magnificent and munificent.

  61. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:04 PM

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

  62. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:04 PM

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

  63. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:05 PM

    Amazing once again. This really deserves accolades

  64. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:05 PM

    Well more so than they already have I mean

  65. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:06 PM

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

  66. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:06 PM

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

  67. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:07 PM

    Can’t wait for GOTY Awards!!!

  68. Pancakes July 21st, 2008 5:07 PM

    This was just super cool

    RadianceGraphics replied on July 21, 2008 5:11 PM:

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

  69. RadianceGraphics July 21st, 2008 5:10 PM

    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

  70. RadianceGraphics July 21st, 2008 5:11 PM

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

  71. treereet July 21st, 2008 6:30 PM

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

  72. VenomXv July 21st, 2008 8:58 PM

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

  73. VenomXv July 21st, 2008 8:58 PM

    Really loved these awards. Awesome stuff guys
