They nominated FUCKING MARIO for game of the year.
Red Dead got way to many awards
Forge 2.0 is just a map creator i've seen that soo many times.
Best controls to black ops wtf?
STARCRAFT HAS THE BEST MULTYPLAYER.

  3. Is it me or does it seem like the Machinima staff didn’t have very many games to play? I will agree Red Dead was a great game, however, that many awards? Well, if you say so Machinima. Also, I personally would have given best indie games to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, that game shook me to the core. Another dispute of mine, Minecraft most original game? Wasn’t it based off of Dwarf Fortress and Infiniminer?

  9. I agree, Starcraft 2 has the best multiplayer. Even if Black Ops didn't lag like a mofo.

    It's good to see Minecraft getting the love it deserves though.
