The only major fault I found with the GOTY's was the exclusion of World of Goo, it's possibly better than Braid yet it wasn't even nominated. It's also not even been made clear if the GB crew played it, which I doubt they have.

Is someone jealous?  LOL  Vinchenzo, it's okay...because your gamerscore still rapes mine, you sly sonuvabitch!
Besides, Jeff hates me.  lol  I even remember him pseudo-insulting me.

Crackdown was crazy fun... apart from the music

I can't really comment on the Wii games since I've never played a single one, but I will say that I find it a very odd choice as well that Wii-Fit was chosen as the best Wii only game. As for World of Goo, I don't know, I've never played it nor have I seen any gameplay clips of it. But from all the good I've read about it, I'd say it deserved to at least be nominated.

But to say Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a multiplayer game worthy of being nominated? No, I can't say I agree with that. I really don't see the appeal of this game, and I doubt I ever will. But don't hate me just yet! Because I do agree with you that Rock Band 2 should've been in the list of nominees. In fact I think it should've been one of the biggest contenders for multiplayer game of the year. I would've probably still voted for Left 4 Dead, but still, I think Rock Band 2 would've been a very good second choice.

As for the rest? Well Crysis was one of my favorite games for 07, but I haven't played any of the other games you mentioned. Although I do have to say that I find the lack of an Uncharted nomination to be kinda weird. I do not, however, agree with you that Banjo Kazooie being nominated for 2008 Game of the Year is an odd choice.

And I can't comment on Megaman 9 because I've not played it. In fact I've never played any Megaman game in my entire life, so I can't agree nor disagree with you on that.

you can't take this stuff too seriously.  Opinions are opinions and four dudes "working" in a basement can't possibly represent those of everyone else.  Look, I love Jeff, Vinny, Ryan, and Brad (in that order), but I could not disagree with their taste in games more.  Sure there's the obvious stuff you would have to be insane to go against like "gears of war 2 is awesome", or so is Braid", or "Grand Theft Auto is cool", and "Rock Revolution is shit" but on the other hand, Soul Calibur 4 rocks, as does Brawl, and MK vs DCU is terrible.  I mean the star wars stuff is stupid, but it's the same game without it, just minus a few characters and stages.  Mortal Kombat changed LITERALLY half their game for the worse just to accomidate the DC license.  I mean it would be a crappy fighting game even if that wasn't true.  MK was already a shell of a game being held up by extreme violence, but without it, it's just a shell of it's former shell...and I don't even know what that would look like.  I'll just keep going with this, Ninja Gaiden 2 was awesome, Megaman 9 was terrible (even in concept), Bionic Commando Rearmed sucks, advertising is cool, Fable 2 Pub games is fun, Gamestop is the best place to buy games, Home can be fun if you let it, I killed Dwayne and kept it that way, Tokyo Drift is mediocre, Final Fantasy games rock, Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts was strictly okay, Energy Drinks taste terrible across the board, Diet Pepsi Max is good.  I could do this all day.  Do you get the point yet?  Huh?  HUH?

Wait wait wait...page two and its already a Staff photoshop thread?...

anyhoo, I agree quite a bit on the world of goo thing. The production quality for that game was wicked and I thought bionic command rearmed was horrible. As a classic revival sure.

Theres only one staff challenge im interested in.

I'll have to call up Bootsy Collins on this one.  He owns Kraft, noise, and funk if you can believe it... he makes a shitload in royalties.

C'mon, Biff.  You should know this.  Velveeta is slang for bringing the funk, not the noise.  Two completely different things.

Unless your staff challenge is for drunk Snider (in other words, Snider) to wrestle that Clerks guy then don't even bother bringing it to the table, because otherwise it isn't a real challenge.

It's definitely in the top 3 on the Wii.

And... Nintendo has taken Jeff's advice, but whoever did it has little experience with Photoshop.

Yeah, that was vintage Gerstmann right there.  Although, I never sucked shit out of any pipes, but I have drank liquid shit out of the shit fountain.

You can make this shit up, apparently.

I was hoping for somebody from the staff to set me straight.  Jeff does it better than anyone.

I love how people are taking this seriously.  It's an overblown fanboyish rant for crying out loud!  My goal was to be owned and hated and for the most part, it's working!  Bwahahaha!

Excellent!

The Nintendo baaaaaaaaaaw'ing in the OP makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

Especially combined with an obvious misunderstanding of the greatest action game of 2007- Crackdown.

"Oh, you so crazy!

Really don't understand all the World of Goo love out there. It's neat and all, but... yeah. Not one of my favorite games of the year. Obviously, same goes for Brawl, though I guess I'd rather play World of Goo than Brawl. Heck, I'd rather "play" Wii Fit than Brawl. Also, we didn't review Blast Works. Not sure where you're getting this "full star higher" nonsense. Blast Works certainly has some neat ideas. Wish they were in a better game.

And if I may respond in kind, if you don't like WarioWare: Smooth Moves you suck shit out of a lead pipe marked "shit delivery system."

Aaaaand lastly, I really like Mega Man 9 right up to the point where they make you start playing it. That's not a classic revival, that's a hate factory.

The whole megaman situation is tough because as much as I love vintage megaman, I had WAY more fun with other downloadable games in the classic revival form. Bionic Commando Rearmed was definitely at the top of that list, too.
