Default GOTY a console game?!

I played Bioshock, Orange Box, COD4, and Crysis. The PC had it's best year ever. I had already crowned Crysis GOTY but then I reluctantly popped Mass Effect into my 360 and everything changed.

This is the first game that has ever made me feel like I was really in a movie. What an amazing blend of FPS and RPG. I love the combat. It's not just point and shoot (unless you play as soldier).

Oh, and it's not a short 8 hour game like almost every other game this year.

Anyway, I'm quite giddy. I'm gushing. This just may be the best game I've ever played.

I'm surprised too but IMHO GOTY is a console game.

I don't like the games women play. I do like the games umm, video games play.

Also The Witcher is much much better than Mass Effect. That is saying a lot as Mass Effect is an amazing game.

Mass Effect = Streamlined(Jade Empire) < Old Bioware days

Also, I cannot stand the industry push to make all genres look similar. Mass Effect is a semi decent RPG with a dumb FPS-like combat system and a terrible AI.
Sold my copy after completing it once. Went back playing the Witcher.

CoD4 or Orange Box should win both CGOTY and PCGOTY.

I think CoD4 is the game of the year on PC & 360.

QFT. Mass Effect is an awesome game, but its not even in the same league as The Witcher.
