Best Skylander IS Drobot, and Skylander should of won best sky use.
Skyrim's environments are amazing.
GB awards need more Skylanders categories clearly.
How did "You're the Best" during the wrestling sequence of Saints Row not get mentioned? Goddamnit I loved that game so much.
Of course it's Drobot, Drobot is the illest!
Bulletstorm should of been one of the final 3 in the best debut category as it's better than at least two of the other nominated games (haven't played Bastion), and is the best single-player fps of the year.
I'll play Saints Row. Don't worry guys. =) i'll trade in skyrim for it.
Chop Chop was robbed.
Never heard the song "power" but the rest seem well reasoned.
I just got a Drobot today as a late Christmas gift! Hell yeah
I love this "crappy FMV from an old nineties PC game" thing you guys are doing with the award videos this year. This is why I give you my money.
I should really get SR3, but I'm saving for a Vita.
My favorite licensed music moment in SR3 was the 'You're the Best Around' while you fucking murder like 30 unarmed luchadores with a chainsaw
@Little_Socrates: Or they just wanted to finally nod back to the debut trailer and use a really good song... >_>They blew it though without the vocals, or really an extended play.

If you didn't find the debut trailer hilarious, I think that's an appropriate response. I find the Mad World/Gears of War connection to be a complete farce throughout the run of the trilogy by the time that first game came out. To someone who has always found it funny that Gears of War is trying to be something it so totally isn't (and probably shouldn't be,) the use of that song completely set off every funny bone in my body.
Of course, I didn't really love the previous two games like a lot of people did. I didn't finish either of them, for that matter. Gears 3 taught me I don't really like their gameplay.
Chop Chop got robbed!
I'm sure bethesda is delighted to recieve such a prestigious reward like "Best Sky Game". I don't think they've updated their blog, however...
GB's awards never disappoint. Just synonymous with the holiday season for me at this point. Happy holidays everyone!
I actually really like the use of Mad World in Gears 3. When it first came on in multiplayer I thought I was losing my mind. Glad to see it on the list.
God damn right the Power scene won. A couple friends were watching me play the game (because they wanted to see the Sublime scene), and this was the moment that convinced all of them to go buy it. So fucking well done.
Saints Row The Third really should've had a mission select.
Seriously. I'm playing trough a second time but already want to go back and play a couple of the missions a third time.
Sooo the problem about these FMV interludes? The acting is way better than in the games it's spoofing. I mean WAY better. It's a bit creepy how good it is, in fact.
STEALTH ELF GOT SCREWED!
At least WWE All Stars got some recognition from SOMEONE though, so that's cool. That game is awesome fun, even if needed more content desperately (and some more depth to it's engine in general. Though who cares when they absolutely nailed the core stuff that games like Mortal Kombat can't even nail. Glad THQ San Diego understands how animation and controls are supposed to get along, and didn't just serve up a bunch of stupid, stilted, pre-canned combos like MK)
I'd prefer if SRtT's use of "I need a Hero" had won as that was really spectacular.
Yeah, that was way better actually. I nearly laughed my ass of.
I'm imagining the only other option was the use of "I Need A Hero" in Saints Row: The Third. Game is ridiculous.
I was going to post this, but yeah, I would have given it to Bonnie Tyler.
I'm seconding the saints row .... :)
I have to respectfully disagree with the Best Use of a Licensed Song winner. Holding Out for a Hero in the penultimate level of the very same game had me laughing so hard, a small amount of urine came out. If I hadn't been wearing Tena for Men, it'd have been pretty embarrassing.
you should play saint row...
Still a bit bitter that nobody mentioned the use of "You're the Best" by Joe Esposito during Murderbrawl XXXI. Right at the appropriate moment, too!
Oh well, Power won so that's good :)
I love Jeff's appreciation of Skylanders. Then I find out it's number 5 on John Vignocchi's list. I must get this game!!
they really pulled out all the stops making these videos this year.
The Legend of Zelda got a sky rimjob if you ask me. Calling bias on Bastion. Ha, just kidding. Great awards, dicks.
Oh man, Saints Row 3 just finished downloading. Can't wait to start!
Great awards and great acting by brad! I just downloaded Power.
that part in Saints Row is GREAT!
@whistlebottom said:I'm imagining the only other option was the use of "I Need A Hero" in Saints Row: The Third.

Those were certainly my top 4, anyways.
Also, I thought the use of Mad World in Gears 3 was absolutely destructive to the moment. That was supposed to be the emotional climax of the series, and I sat there roaring like a hyena. Absolutely hysterical. It was akin to the tape stopping in the middle of that cutscene, having Cliffy B walk on screen, and yell "You see, you fuckers? We can make a shooter with emotions AND explosions! Look at it! See these explosions! They're emotional. So stop telling us that we didn't deliver on that first Mad World trailer, you little shit. We finally did it, guys. Let's go to Disney World. Roll tape."
My god these are the best awards ever.
There might have been some stiff competition if Skyoshock came out this year.
@Nightriff: Truph! Welcome to the community sir
*Reads first category.... already burst out laughing
Oh Giantbomb =)
Pretty lame awards today. Hoping for better tomorrow.
I feel that the mechanized implants give Drobot an unfair edge, and I suspect doping. Or droping.
Brad has awesome acting. Best surprise of 2011.
Bradzard it's the best Wizard in the kingdom
I love those categories :D
Totally random ...but not!
