I just completed my voting.

I tried not to give a game more than one vote per catagory unless I really had to.

I hope Metal Gear Solid 3 does well, it was clearly game of the year. Even though GTA will probably win that. :(

Pro Evolution Soccer 4 was clearly the PS2 Game of the year. I must have atleast 200 hours of gameplay on it. Probably quite a bit more.

I cant see much beating GTA in the catorgries its in. In all honesty even though they dont have too much imagination between versions these days (re-occuring characters, similair gameplay etc) the production values, the cost, the voice acting, sheer size of it all is too immense for it not to win.
Its one of the only games i can remember that i want to put back in my PS2, (i brought Pro Evo on the Xbox :D)

Sean thats you, and your in the UK, I doubt it was that big in the US, maybe only in Eastern Asia. Where as MGS3 was played world over and was a truly great game.

I've clocked up over 200 hours on Socom II but I still think Metal Gear Solid 3 is better than it.

In my opinion MGS3 is the best game ever! Stunning Graphics, great storyline, likeable characters, good voice acting, excellent gameplay, and the list goes on. :D

MGS3 is good, but the storyline still has nothing on the first MGS.

The awards are for the UK. But obviously anyone can vote if they get onto the site.

HL2 was awsome, best FPS i've played along side Halo, wouldn't be my game of the year but it surely isn't gay, CS on the other hand...gay.
