I love the holiday version of the bombcast theme. it's too bad that the sleighbells force it to be holiday only, otherwise I think they should use it all the time

I, too, did not enjoy flower, though I'm still in the process of finishing it.  Which ain't gonna happen anytime soon.

Well, Persona 4 was a sure one.   
 
I don't remember a memorable inFamous late title card, though. Which is weird, because I finally just got it and played it a few days ago.... 
 
Anyway, yeah, Wolverine had the best one this year, followed closely by AC2.

Is there going to be a Bombcast for every day of their GotY feature?  If so, there is only one word to describe this: FREAKING AWESOME!!!

A 2008 game winning a 2009 GOTY award? Awesome =) Persona 4 really deserves it.   
EDIT: Oops I just realized it is an award for last year games, my bad then

I did not realize Vinny had such animosity toward Flower. I'm actually quite surprised, I would have expected him to be one of the few on the Giantbomb staff to appreciate it.

That shocked me as well. Though his intense hate for it, or rather his hate for the reaction people have to it, is strangely entertaining. That whole story about bringing the flowers into the office was something I'd never expect from Vinny. 
 
Love ya' Vinster!

I have the slightest memory of a podcast when flower was just out, where Brad said it was really relaxing and Vinny said he got more angry than relaxed. But I was still surprised that he was THAT annoyed by it.
