It's not unfair to say at all. Of course Nintendo EPD should be here, and I could see why Naughty Dog is here (even though I'm not a fan of most of their games)
But there is very little reason why Monolith and Guerilla are here other than Nintendo/Sony fans pushed each along.
The same thing I said before can be applied here. Looking back at that round, I would have voted Monolith Soft, simply because I liked them the most from the list, and that could be the same for others who picked them as well. I certainly didn't do it simply for the sake they make games for Nintendo.
