So, the year is done. Everyone had time to vote.

Should we just crown LKS as VG Press GoTY?

^I think so, unless we elect to have a run off between the top 2 vote getters. But since me, vader, steel and homer are the only PS3ers around here, that probably wouldn't get very far.

I think LKS is it.

Foolz also has a PS3.

The problem is that most people have played either LKS or Uncharted 2, not both. I blame the  PS3 owning guys, because you had the possibility to play both. I did not.

And besides LKS is criminally absent, even in the Wii GoTY awards. Most of the time it is not even being nominated. So it is also a pity vote, but the game deserves some recognition.

^Well, at least I bought it, and I will play it in 2010.  And Foolz has a PS3?! What dumpster did he find that in?

But, yeah, I think Iga, by direct vote we can elevate LKS as our inaugural VGPress GOTY.

There are tons of PS3 guys here, how many votes did Uncharted 2 get?

So any theories as to why Little Kings Story was left off or didn't win the Wii specific GOTY lists?

I think its Mario nostalgia for NSMB. I've played nothing else on the system this year that compares to the depth, charm and polish of LKS on Wii this year. So why is it being so overlooked in the awards?

Well Mario did not win all the Wii GoTY awards either. My theory is incompetence.

What about US vs Euro reviews? I remember, because the game came out in Europe a couple of months earlier the reviews there were almost universally positive 9+ but then US reviews were more muted.

Culture difference there?

No I stand by my incompetence theory. The Europeans are just more competent than the Americans. Also it did better in sales in Europe. 

In short Europe > USA

Did Homer vote in this thread? Cause if not his choice is Uncharted 2 (as heard on the podcast).
