    It's still better than giving Innovation award to Halo 3, as they did in Edge :roll:

    MotB isn't getting the recognition it deserves it seems. The good thing is that at least no emo jRPG will win this unlike on gamespot. The awards are heavily biased towards nonjapanese developers when I look at the past winners list.

    They innovated the dumbing down of action games. I think that counts for something.

    I think ME is more likely to win than TW, though.

    I also think that ME will most likely win since they also seem to be preferring shooters. ME is the "shootiest" (to quote DOW flash gitz) out of the RPG nominees.
