It's a pretty cool site- been digging through the years looking at the great gaming history.  They've got genre awards broken down as well.

Here are the official rules from the website:

Rules

1. Video Game Awards Only - The Video Game includes Console games,
PC games, Handheld games, and Indie games, but not Mac games, Kids games, Free games, etc.

a. A game must be an original title but includes an expansion pack.


2. Professional Awards Only - The Media include Sites, Magazines, Newspapers, Publications, Broadcastings, but not Blogs have a staff of one.

a. Journalists that belong to the Media must be professional.

b. A web site must have it's own domain name.

c. A personal site like the one-man blog is not included.

d. A user community site that consists of bulletin boards alone, is not included.

e. Exceptions to clause 'd' are as follows;

* NeoGAF - a video game industry discussion community.

* GameFAQs - a site that helps people either defeat a game, become more skilled at it, or provides information about it.

f. A forum poll shall be regarded as GOTY Awards provided the results are officially announced on behalf of the media. But in principle at least, that is not included.

g. A student-operated newspaper is not included.


3. All-Format GOTY Awards Only - But a single GOTY pick must be a single title, except for a tie.

a. A tie is the result in competitions where there is either no winner or multiple winners, so it means multiple titles selected by agreement of all editors in the media.

b. Awards include rankings of games like best games of the year.

I'm still upset that Super Mario Galaxy didn't win in 2007. No disrespect to Bioshock.

It's still my GOTY but that doesn't mean anything lol.

It's also way too early to determine the winner but odds are, it'll end up being RDR2 or God of War. 



Well deserved for GoW, although RDR2 and SM were great as well and Detroit a very good niche.

IMO, God of War was the best choice as well.  It takes a lot to get me to invest in a plat, but there was no way I could stop playing this one until I did.

Even though I preffered the older GoW, this one was superb and I agree with you. I pushed the extra mile to plat it on GMGW
