My personal choices from GameSpot's Editor choices.

 

However the player choice area is on now and you can vote for it (Round 1B atm) - I did my own votes and almost all of the games I voted for are winning l0l. 

The player choices options are horrid compared to the Editor's Choices and the match ups are so broken lol.



Now thats a good list for each platform.

___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

Also, I am surprised Diablo 3 did not make to the list at all nor Gravity Rush/Daze and Pokemon White 2 ;(

Why u no nice to actual GOOD portable games GS ;(

Players choice always sucks on everything.  Exclusives get chewed up by haters from both all three parties and then fanboys vote for them no matter what.  It just becomes a match between the exclusives seeing which one has the most hate at that point lol  

Editors choice is much more accurate

Yeah it was surprising about Gravity Daze. I understood Persona 4 Golden because its's a remake.  Anyways Im sure Gravity Daze will get plenty of nominations on other sites.

Gamespot does not like pokemon much because they are the same everytime. I dont know if they dont like it but they dont believe it should get high scores or get nominated because of that reason

Couldn't they just give a multiplat award, i mean come on, ps/xbox have 4 of the same titles.

To clarify, the bolded are the recently updated winners and not your personal choice out of the nominated? I'm pretty sure they're the winners but I had to ask just in case.

These are the editor choice awards, not mine.  

Personally I'm really happy to see Spelunky edge out Mario since Spelunky is new and original.

It'll be interesting to see what wins the XBLA award because that list is pretty good.  Probably the most competive list on here other than Shooter of the year
