I've always wondered, are games that get game of the year versions self-proclaimed? If so, then it basically means nothing as any game developers could make a game of the year version of their game.

I wonder also. I suspect Microsoft have a role in the selection of such games. I think they are games they see as worthy contenders for GOTY in the years that they were released.

Game of the Year in retail speak doesn't mean its won any awards, it just means that its the complete version with DLC. Its confusing, yes, but its the term that has come to be used.

Thanks for clearing that up. Intentionally misleading more so than confusing. They could have easily called it something far more appropriate, but they choose to call it this in the hope that it will attract more sales.

I'm not too sure whether I should wait to get this as a replacement for my mangled copy of Fable II or just get a cheap original...

@Linkyshinks: I'm several months late to this party, but Joystiq gave Fable II Game of the Year
 
Anyway, to give my post a bit more substance, Amazon now says that they can ship the Platinum Hits edition (the North American equivalent to Europe's GotY edition). Does anyone know if the DLC is included in that?
