Honestly, I just put it on for Best Wii Game and Best Platformer...neither of which are very exciting categories this year (they both have pretty much one great game and some other ok stuff). "
It's probably GOTY for me... what can I say, I'm a sucker for the Mario.

@nintendoeats: As a big fan of SMT: Strange Journey and can say that it doesn't belong on the list. WAY to niche, and, like I said, Etrian Odyssey III would be ahead of it anyway. 
 
But ya, BFBCII was significant enough to be considered Best FPS of 2010

" @marrec:  Again, whats wrong with flash games? I have spent sixty hours at least playing Gemcraft: Chapter 0 and a well designed Flash title is no different than a Xbox live game. The only difference between a flash game, an IOS game, and a 360 game is the medium and price. In the end they are all games. Some might be hardcore, some casual, some might be made by industry vets, some might be made by a fifth grader who downloaded a copy of Flash CS5 off of Isohunt. If they are all games then the successful ones deserve to be recognised. If not then the title should be re-labelled as "Console Games that Mattered in 2010." "
I totally agree with you, that's why I have no problem with a 'Best IOS Game' but I would also want a 'Best Flash Game' because Gemcraft: Chapter 0 was one of my top 10 games last year. Trouble is, Flash games get no love here or otherwise. 
 
I don't equate IOS with a portable game platform because I get so much play out of the PSP\DS, so I am totally biased... but you can't seriously consider any IOS game for Portable GOTY right?

" @nintendoeats: 
What is wrong with a best IOS category? My belief is that a game is a game. It doesn't matter what device it is on, or what genre it falls into, they are all games.  Then I thought this was a list of games that mattered. How many games have broken a million sales on that list? Not only did those three sell gangbusters, they also innovated the mobile space by offering titles that are as polished as anything, and have as many hours of content  as almost any games out there.

" @MonetaryDread: I don't think the number of games sold speaks to any kind of weight when you are talking about IOS games, I might've bought Angry Birds an not even known it it's so inexpensive. 
You still thought is was worth spending your money on it. Even if it is only a dollar. "
I have, on and off, also thought that a McDouble is worth spending money on, but that doesn't mean it actually is. 
 
Don't get me wrong, Angry Birds et all is an addictive little time waster, but if we are letting those guys in, then I think we should also have 'Best Flash Game' Category ;P

Best RPG? is anybody really going to call it best RPG? I don't think that there is a "most difficult game" category. "
Ya I think a lot of people will call it best RPG, or at least nominate it. There was stiff competition for Best-RPG this year but it should defiantly be nominated. 
 
In fact, it's in my top five PS3 games now that I think about it. 
 
Edit: But if no one else mentions it, then I am obviously crazy. ;P

And Deadly Premonition isn't?  Doesn't that kind of make it seem like games you think should win awards are given some sort of preferential treatment on this list of yours? "
Nobody is perfect, try as I might some bias is going to make its way in. But again, what is the award that Nier gets? DP has potential for best narrative (not the top spot, but definite nomination potential), what does Nier do that makes it special? "
Best Farming Minigame? *lols* 
 
Ya there was some bias in the original list, but you'd be hard pressed to come up with every significant game of 2010 in one go. Jolly good effort though.

I'm not beyond voting on a Best IOS game category, but none of those games would even make the Best Portable Games category.

Also you'll probably have to add Cataclysm when it comes out. No matter where you stand on the WoW front it's probably going to be the best selling PC game this year.
