Someone needs to make a game with the acronym GOTY, just to screw with people's heads...

Bioshock was a great game. It got a bit repetitive at times, but everything else was perfect. Length, art, graphics, gameplay, story. Crysis looked better, but played worse thanks to the second part, CoD4 was Space Invaders in 3d and Medal of Honor Airborne was a steaming pile of cr*p. The Witcher is also great, the one fault I find is the combat system, they should have thought of something better than the clicking thing.

We also had games like COH: Opposing Fronts and SC: Forged Alliance but both were weaker than their original counterparts. The Orange Box was also a decent package. Overall, I think Bioshock won it fair and square. It was definitely the best game for me on my 360, and I couldn't find something else on the PC I enjoyed more.

Tony.

The Witchers combat is great. It's in between a Diablo click fest and a turn based watch and wait...fest.

It does need tweaking though, but it is really satisfying killing 5 guys at once with a few clicks in a small room. So much blood ::

Bioshock had some flaws, but all games do, so what? I think that it deserved the win just because it was different enough from everything else this year and the story was great. Plus, I love art deco and this game was like being in a candy store for me.

My runners up: Crysis, COD4, Portal.

I actually think this game could of worked better as an Oblivion type where some people are still normal and you have to talk to them to reveal the plot.

Why are critics on this game's nuts so much? It's not THAT great

True, Bioshock is not THAT great, but it's the best thing that came out this year. Hence GOTY.
