Developed and Published by Ubisoft

Why it won: I'll give you three good reasons: Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Splinter Cell Double Agent and Rainbow Six Vegas. Sure, the PC ports could use a little love, but over time Ubisoft eventually patches them up to the state they should be in. You do need a shader 3.0 capable video card and load of ram to even play, but a high-end PC with a DX10 video card makes them look even better and run smoother than even their 360 counterparts.
Not sure what IP exactly means here , but you get the idea.

Yep, that was a good list.

I'm glad Oblivion is getting the attention and awards it deserves. There are some people who don't like it, sure, but where a lot of people were introduced to Morrowind as their first RPG, Oblivion really took it to the next level. Tons of people love it. It has a huge amount of replayability. Beautiful graphics. Its available for X360 and PC. The modding community is immense and extremely active. Its accessible yet deep (even more so for people who take the time to install some plugins).

Seems like an easy choice this year.

User voted list isn't it? At least that's what it says when RO won best MP. Don't agree with all of the list but that doesn't mean it's a bad list, most choices are pretty reasonable.

oblivion has no replayablity. Once you seen something why do i want to see it again? I couldn't even finish the first time, damn oblivion gates got sooooo boring and all yuou have to do is invis through the game.

This is true. When I played through my second time I used mods to disappear all but the quest Oblivion gates and I ignored all but the quest dungeons thanks to BT mod. It found I was able to get more into the main quest without distractions and it was pretty fun. It's also pretty cool to see how the general population react if you do the Main Quest and Kot9 Quest, then do the Dark Brotherhood Quest. They refer to you as a fallen Knight, fits my character (Ninja Vampire) pretty well. There is a fair bit of Role Playing to do. You just have to know how to.
