Well deserved! Keep the awards rolling in for the best hand ever!!


That meant to say game


Clearly there are some good hands involved in making it though wink


lifetime aceivement award to hideo kojima, well deserved. Good to see LBP getting so many awards.


Congratz on the awards to Mm, great work on lbp and wow only half way through lbp, awesome…best game worth. ^_^


I’m sorry but LBP should have taken game of the year…HANDS DOWN!  Don’t get me wrong I think it is awesome to see that they won 4 awards, but out of all the nominees for GOTY, LBP was by far the best choice.  Sorry game developers…you got this one wrong.
