GameSpot Game of the Year schtuff

GameSpot has announced their RPG of the Year, and it's none other than Neverwinter Nights! The other contenders were Morrowind, Arx Fatalis, Divine Divinity, and some icky MMO thingy.
Of course, if you happen to be a more-serious fan of role-playing games, you can use the game's complicated but powerful editing tools to create your own adventures and even host them online. Neverwinter Nights' online play seemed a bit lacking at launch, since it could be difficult to coordinate party members' actions, but a very strong player base has developed around the game and its editing tools--more than 1,000 different fan-made modules have already been released for public consumption. Despite its technical issues, and despite the fact that there were so many other worthy contenders for the title of PC RPG of the year, Neverwinter Nights ended up being the role-playing game for just about anyone, and it ends up with our vote for best computer role-playing game of 2002.
It probably doesn't hurt that GameSpot gets a lot of exclusives from Infogrames either.
Thanks to Spazmo for the heads up!
