I'm really looking forward to Fallout 3, Dead Space, and Left 4 Dead. I'm probably going to be broke by the end of the year with so many games coming out.

I am still waiting for my lightsaber game with the new wii motion plus remotes. You have to come out with something now for it since the technology is there. I guess for now I will have to be use to the joystick controls from the star wars arcade. Dueling Fett and Vader is awesome in it. But it would be better if you can swing it aroundlike a light saber.

Yeah I'm surprised there aren't more Nintendo magazines out there. If you love Nintendo, you have to love Nintendo Power though!

I think it's cool that it is votes from multiple review places. Guess I didn't translate "PSM" into Sony, oh, well. Still sorta sad that Nintendo's not in it.

PSM magazine gets a vote. Nintendo Power probably doesn't meet certain qualifications or didn't want a part in it. The other judges certainly look well rounded out.

Did you see last year's vote for game-of-the-year? The guy from Playstation Magazine gave a lot of vote points to Bioshock (Xbox 360 at the time).

Judging by the game-of-the-year award for '07 (Bioshock), I would say their voting is consistent with the rest of the gaming community. If anything, I would say they are more respectable than just a magazine giving out an award by themselves. This looks to be a good blend.

Nintendo did OK last year...Mario Galaxy got the number 5 spot overall. If their voting means anything, it means Nintendo better think about what they want to do before year end. As the sang goes, "dance with the one that brung ya".

ok, doing some more exploring, and I have another complaint--Official Xbox Magazine and PC Gamer both have votes, but there's nothing from Nintendo (Nintendo Power) or from Sony Playstation (whatever their magazine is called).

I'm not opposed to them winning something (Fallout 3 and littlebigplanet), but the link that Ryan gave had them for everything--I think it'd be more fun to have the awards a little more spread out.

Well, I was definitely confused by it, I was looking at the "tell us what we did wrong" part and going "okay, is this the results, and if so where's your guesses and if this is your guesses where's the results?" I've never really heard of the Game Critics Awards before (I guess that makes me backwards, oh, well), so I wasn't sure if it was just one game review site's thing or not. So, I think it's cool that I was able to find the main site and see that they've been at this for a while.

Nintendo targetting a crowd that was happily excluded from the gaming audience at E3, it wouldn't be surprising if they didn't win anything (WAIT! What about Animal Crossing!?).

Fallout 3, and LittleBigPlanet were my favorites seen there this year. Lips vs. MotionPlus? I want the motion plus!

Wow, that is confusing. I guess we'll see today how it goes. There's still hope for Nintendo then. I would especially hope that their Motion Plus accessory beats out the Lips Microphone.

Says it'll be announced Tues. Aug. 5th:

I was wondering about the link you gave cuz they said:
"Kotaku's Picks"
"Today, I turned in Kotaku's official ballot for who we think the winners should be."
"Hit up the jump for our official ballot and then chime in to explain how we got it all wrong."

It was the "explain how we got it all wrong" part that really confuse me.

Those are the actual awards. About a week ago they posted the nominations. Nintendo got a few nods, but not too much. I think the E3 really hit them. I've seen lots of talk from the CEO and President how they are sorry for not catering to the "core gamers". Even the Final Fantasy folks at Square have mentioned how they are trying to think of something for the core gamers on the Wii.

Is that the awards or who they THINK should get the awards?

Well, the awards have been given. Looks like Fallout 3 is going to be the bomb...pun intended. Poor Nintendo though, looks like they didn't win any awards at all. At least they were nominated in a couple categories though.
