    That's a pretty impressive list. I think I've played half of the games listed.

    Witcher 2. Best. RPG. Ever.

      Thought the inclusion of Witcher would make you happy.

        It does. I think its a legit GotY and not just the best RPG. The innovative category is the only head scratcher for me. Excluding Zelda but including Skyrim?Sent from my iPhone 4

    Is that the patched or unpatched version of Uncharted 3 they're voting on? Cause the gunplay is crap without the patch,
