    Good!!!! I loved this game, big time.

    Hopefully, it will entice the developers to be kind and give us another one. ICO 2, perhaps?

    This game seems to be one of those ones that either, really hits you deep down and you immediately love it or, you see it as a silly 3rd person adventure where you lead a goofy girl around a castle.

    The atmosphere, the graphics, the phenomenal ambient sound, the dreamy mystery of the castle, all pulled me in.

    Just wish the game were longer.

    Sorry, but these nominations REALLY puzzle me. I've seen a lot of video games over the last 25 years and these people don't seem to be nominating the right games.

    Is Final Fantasy X not here because it was released too late in the year? (Technically it WAS released on 12/21).

    Why no category for original music?
