Tell me I'm not the only one who sees a pattern;

Left 4 Dead - Valve - Valve hates the PS3
Fallout 3 - Bethesda Softworks - Decided to only make DLC for 360
Gears of War 2 - Epic Games - 360 Exclusive

Not saying these games are undeserving of praise, but some of them I disagree with.
Game of the Year, Left 4 Dead? Yes, it's quite fun, but it does get quite boring quite fast, seeing as there is little depth to it.

Best Mobile/Handheld Game, Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force? REALLY? This game beat out a game like The World Ends With You, which has a metacritic score of 89, and Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force only has a... Wait a minute... It doesn't even HAVE a metacritic score. But on IGN (I know, not a good source, but at least it's got a review), it's only got a 7, while TWEWY has a 9 there.

Outstanding Technical Innovation, Gabe Newell for Left 4 Dead? Was is really that innovative? It was just Source Engine after all.

Come on ELAN. Come. ON.

I thought the awards were too concentrated, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3 and Left 4 Dead swept the awards. There were many other excellent titles completely ignored by the ELAN Awards.
