And the award for "Best Sci-fi, 3rd person shooter featuring Commander Shepard" goes to Mass Effect 2. 
I why you do it. You don't want one game winning all/most awards but I still think the exclusive platform rule sucks.

I know it was only Jeff who reviewed it, but I find it awesome that the game they agreed upon as a group that deserves Xbox 360 GOTY got a 4 out of 5. I could not agree more with the decision, but now I really can't wait for the podcast to hear how this happened.

Disappointed with your best co-op and downloadable game selection, in my mind there was only 1 clear choice and it was Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It was the only meaningful co-op with characters with different abilities that had to use those unique abilities in order to progress. And it was so much fun with excellent and varied level design. An easy selection for me.

Because there's a multiplatform game of the year category...and Mass Effect 2 is on the PC and will be on the PS3....so how would it win the "only on 360" award?

Kind of a crappy year for exclusives on both 360 and PS3 whereas the Wii had some really great ones. Next year is just looking crazy for all games I think i'm just going to curl up into a ball and cry as I won't get to play them all.

And I wanted to see Jeff lose. Not that we haven't seen enough of that in Halo Reach between all of the videos for the game.

The reason why the Covenant can't speak English is they hadn't bought their copy of Rosetta Stone yet.

@GiHubb: I used to agree with your argument but not anymore. Just because both have to push seperate buttons seperately doesn't make it anymore co-op. The whole "now I can't continue further because I have to wait for you to open this door for me" just feels contrived. 
 
I'm not saying I don't agree with your point, Lara Croft might be the better co-op game. I just totally dismiss your argument :P

 I think they should have picked a better game. The problem with the Halo series is that reviewers give it 9/10 and then a year later it doesn't age well or isn't fun anymore. Halo is a bit overrated and call of duty proved that there are comparable products out there for multiplayer. I just wish they picked another game besides Halo.

I know its an incredibly petty reason to dislike reach but that cross hair being so far down the screen is still a bummer
