It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.

Just one thing though: all of the staff involved in the process, both full-time and freelance, had a clean slate. They were free to pick any game that was on the consoles as their nomination. Basically, you picked Left 4 Dead 2 as a nomination in GOTY, it would also go down as your vote for GOTY. Same for all the other categories.

This could mean you may only see one game completely run away with it in one category, while it becoming very close in others.

By Will Swarbrick.

It was Niko’s walk that really got me in GTA IV. The way the immigrant swaggered, shoulders rolling, feet pumping the ground, leaning into each corner. It put so much character into something as simple as walking; you knew, right from the start, he was here to chew gum and kick ass.

So, Red Dead Redemption is leisurely strolling to our consoles, and the walk is back, albeit changed slightly. Arms slightly outstretched, large, unnatural sides, palms facing backwards, and a look that’s melt and burn butter simultaneously.
