Gametrailers: Which five games have made the cut? Who will win the biggest prize of all? Check out the nominees for Game of the Year in Spike's Video Game Awards 2010!
I can honestly say I will not be disapointed if any one of these win, they all deserve it.

where's starcraft 2? WTF?? It defo beats halo reach imo.
I agree all are worthy. COD is the only one I would consider changing to either Assassin's Creed, Heavy Rain, or Super Mario Galaxy 2. But looking back at 2010 there really isn't much to choose from. Out of those games I liked God of War 3 the best, but I don't think it's going win game of the year. Halo Reach was really good, and all the content put it up to GOTY status. But I don't think it should win GOTY. Red Dead Redemption is going to be the runner up. It 's multiplat, and it was an all around great game. I think it's going to be Mass Effect 2. Especially now that it's multiplatform, and coming out next month for PS3 gamers. My guess is Bioware is hoping that winning GOTY will help sales of the PS3 version.
All deserve it? I'd like to know how you concluded Black Ops and Halo: Reach are significantly higher quality games than Super Mario Galaxy 2, Star Craft II, Gran Turismo 5, and Heavy Rain. I'd also rate those nominees below BC2, Civ V, and other great games released in 2010. I'd say RDR, ME2, and GoW III clearly deserve to be nominated, but the others are quite suspicious choices.
I'd just like to clarify that the two games I called out are good games but are "suspicious" because it seems popularity and $$$ are given preference over superior games. No disrespect to Reach in particular; it's a very good game that I've enjoyed playing. I just think there were better games, and I listed some of them.
Either Red dead or GoW 3 -> runner up is Halo!.... but all are awesome!
God of War 3 or Mass Effect 2, both awesome games.
Red Dead or ME2
Uncharted 3 trailer is GOTY!!!!!!!!!!! Lol, on topic, in my opinion, it should be RDR, ME2 or GOW3.
RDR GOWIII for me, only 2 I played out of this, ME2 also a good contender I guess
RDR!!! The best bang for your buck and the best overall experience this year!!!
I think Rdr should win it based on how the story became to be unique and creative. Plus the sandbox free-roam era continues to allow gameplay to never get old because u can find new events and things to occur.
God Of War 3 Hands Down
GOW3 the best game of 2010.
Meh. Heavy Rain will be my GoTY, if not Game of the Generation.
heavy rain of assassins creed brotherhood for miiiii
god of war 3 gr8 graphics lots of action epic battles
Didn't play Red Dead but my winner is ME2....I love Halo, I really do but it just can't beat the epicness that ME2 had. GOW3 was epic but it was a one playthrough thing while I played ME2 3 times and I never do that with single player games
How did Black ops make on to GOTY?
$$$ should answer you question.
And because it's fun to play.
I would of put Alan Wake there instead of Black Ops. But out of those most definatly GOW 3 or Red Dead should win.
Where's Gran Turismo 5?
My vote goes to either Red Dead Redemption, or Halo Reach, I really really liked GOW3 but I didn't LOVE it, and ME2 I haven't played yet (getting this holiday, loved the first one,) Black Ops is fun, and I really enjoy it, but it's not GOTY caliber.
