    I lol’d at ‘Retailer of the year’, not too many choices are there? I would give it to gamestation anyway, they’re cleaner, friendlier and generally have better quality goods and a better variety.

    Don’t really agree with Nintendo game of the year, as it’s not really a Nintendo game. A seperate company had to make it themselvces for it to be released on the Wii, it’s miles better on PS3 and 360 anyway. Not sure what I’d replace it with eith, to be honest. It’s been quite a poor year for games. Next years Golden Joystickswill be better with SMG2, NSMB, WiiFit+, SEGA racing and new Monkey Ball. Not to mention far more games for the PS3 and 360.

    I agree with J-Monkey. Gamestation are way better than Game and I don’t agree with the Nintendo Game either. It should either be Professer Layton and Pandoras Box or Wii Sports Resort.

    Actually, both of those games came out after the voting period, so they would be due for consideration in next year’s awards.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!
