      1. Well, it’s pretty normal. For me it was a little surprising. And everyone automatically hates you if you acknowledge it. By the way it was me that posted the original, but i’ve made an account since then.

  1. Skyward Sword really deserves it as I couldn’t put it down for three days, just after completing OoT3D while I got bored of Skyrim cause it’s so similar to Oblivion.
    I’m more happy for Nintendo though because they’ve spent the last few years with people insulting the company, telling them to give up and even losing the trillion yen, but they still pull off multiple awards and Edge’s developer of the year!

  2. Heheh, Modern Warfare 3 was beat by Portal 2 on Best Online experience! Anyways, I think Skyrim should have beaten Dark Souls for third for Best Audio Design.

  3. Lost all legitimacy at “best online experience: dark souls”

    Are you joking? Most people play that piece of crap offline because 99% of the time you play online and get invaded by someone 50 levels higher than you and they kill you and you lose all your souls…..

    Oops, dark souls is a good game, online is the piece of crap.

    1. I’m sorry Winscar, but the last time I checked, the acclaimed EDGE Magazine had just a liiittle more validity than your own personal opinions based on the fact that you just suck at playing online.

    2. TF2 should have been 1st
      reasons:
      it came first on screw attack’s best PC game
      People literally spend THOUSANDS of dollars on virtual goods
      e.g: unusual Team Captain goes for around 2,300 dollar
      Its also a great game

  4. Legend of Zelda SUCKS!
    It’s the most useless & stupid (shit) videogame created (& their ugly & needless loser-elfish boy).
    Zelda are scum, dumb morons & gangster assholes.(Their brainless fans, characters, etc are weak-minded, sore losers with low IQ)
    All of their games, cartoons, etc are all shit, crap, garbage, rubbish & suck-ass.
    They must be removed from this face of this planet.
