How was Heavy Rain disappointing?

@FancySoapsMan:  Which ones do you disagree with? I'm always down for a civil debate :)

RDR was a great game, but it's definitely now GOTY. 
 
Unfortunately it will be whored out by 90% of all major gaming websites as GOTY as they love to ride Rockstar dick. 
 
Mass Effect 2 should more than likely take GOTY.  
 
To be honest so long as Black Ops doesn't win ANYTHING I'll be happy.

When I skimmed over this I misread "Best Indie Game" as "Most Indie Game". I think that would make a good category.

@Marcsman:  The strongest part of that game was the story, until you beat the game and realized that the story was full of holes. Also I felt like the gimmicky controls were unnecessary and at times just got in the way.

RDR should win best sound design.  
GoW 3 should win best graphics.

Alright besides Nathan making the Origamis the story was pretty tight and excellent. Playing it with Move is much better I might add. 
I did not figure out who the killer was until they showed me.

@poser:  The biggest ones are best indie game and best story. I think Super Meat Boy is not only the best indie game of the year, it's the best game of the year overall. 
 
As for story, I think that honor should go to Deadly Premonition. It was so crazy, I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it in a game before.

Or, you know, because it was goddamn fantastic. Easily my GOTY, with ME2 a close second.
