    What do you guys think will be revealed? And what game do you think will win the GOTY? (I think Zelda will win)

    I think the GOTY will go to either Skyrim or Arkham City.

    No idea on what new reveals will be, aside from that new Bioware title.

    Arkham City won over Uncharted 3? Guess that should propel it to GOTY now.

    "We want in on the zombie shooter genre too" it looked like.

    Knowing Naughty Dog, I bet The Last of Us will be sex with a controller.

    I AM SO DAMN EXCITE FOR GENERALS 2 YOUR MERE HUMAN WORDS CANT EXPRESS IT

    Really though, I was hoping it was Generals 2 from the brief clip, but Generals touched on some preeeetty touchy stereotypes. I hope they don't lose the edge, but it looks damn awesome, and a studio like Bioware is exactly what the failing C&C licence needs.

    I am ok that i'm probably the only person that Generals 2 is a huge thing for :lol 

    Oh yeah, that Mass effect whatever game looked pretty awesome too. Wrex <3

    The Last of Us looked like Uncharted: Shadow of Chernobyl... Only not quite as good as either game individually. Well, it should turn out good. Naughty Dog is a great developer. I just wonder what the release date for that game is going to be. Seems like it would be far off since they just finished Uncharted 3.

    Also, on a side note: I think I am over with the Mass Effect series at this point. Looks so generic by now. What happened Mass Effect? You used to be cool. :(

    EA has no idea how to market something. While most fans love the side of Mass Effect that is about a galaxy wide threat filled with political intrigue, interesting characters, and an incredible back story and history, the marketers just want to try to appeal the 13 year old call of duty playing fan. I'm sure all the stuff we love is all still there if you liked ME1 and 2, and it will be a worthy sequel depsite the ridiculous addition of multiplayer. (it might not be ridiculous in itself, but the idea of needing to add multiplayer to ME3 is just ridiculous)

    Bought Mass Effect 2 for PS3. Christmas, mang. I'll be ready for 3.

    Also, I want Joker to win COTY. I mean, it's Mark Hamill!

    I think they're just showing the nominees throughout the show, the actual award isn't till later. Poor format on their part though,

    Well, the thing is that I absolutely loved ME1. ME2 was good, but I felt it going into a more actiony direction than I would like. It just felt like it was missing a whole lot of what made the first game special. Based off of everything they have shown of ME3 so far, it feels like it might be going full-******.

    Mass Effect 2, IMO, played the same combat wise as part 1 if not a little better, so the shooting part of it is fine with me. That's what the trailers have shown mostly for part 3. To be honest though, what matters to me is the story, and 2 had as much if not more dialogue and story and depth to the characters. The only thing 2 lacked was the planet exploring, and while I did miss that, after taking over 40 hours to beat ME2, it ultimately didn't detract from ME2 being an incredible experience. So, I just don't see how it was being dumbed down. (ok, maybe the level gaining being so automatic, so I would like to see that changed back) I'm just sure Bioware isn't going to skimp out on the story or anything.

    Like it or not, EA's marketing isn't going to show you what the game is about. As far as I knew from their trailers, both Dragon Ages were about large breasted women rubbing blood down their cleavage.
