LittleBigPlanet 2 was robbed! LBP2 is my favorite game of this generation so far.

I think LBP2, Rayman Origins, and Outland deserved to win more than Super Mario 3D Land.

Nah I think Mario was the right pick. I haven't actually played any game on that list but from what people were saying this mario was actually the best one ever made. EVER. Even better than mario 64 (which i did play). He truly is the king of platformers.

I would choose Rayman Origins over LBP2 only because of the perfect controls and platforming. Other than that, LBP2 is better than Mario Land, but we all know Mario will always win a free pass because of its reputation.

Note: Mario Land (and Mario in general) is a great game. They have always been, but this time Rayman Originas should have taken the crown.

I loved Rayman Origins. It was my 3rd favorite game of 2011 after LBP2 and UC3. Rayman Origins is the best 2D sidescroller I've ever played but there's no online co-op or user generated content in Rayman Origins.

I love LBP2 way more because it has endless content and I've been blown away many times by the story mode and the user generated games and especially the platforming levels. I've played LBP2 for 250+ hours so far and I'm nowhere near finished.

The controls in LBP2 are good enough. There are some really talented creators in LBP2, there are alot of levels in LBP2 I find extremely fun. The new PS Move compatible levels are pretty amazing. LBP2 is my favorite PS3 game and my favorite PS Move game. I hope Media Molecule make LBP3 eventually.

I do love LBP/LBP2, but the best platformer is Rayman Origins. The better game of the two is LBP2, but that is only because it's more than just a platformer. Everything about Rayman is refined to near perfection. It's the best platformer I've played since SMW.

I totally recommend you to play mario 3d first before judging it.
its a masterpiece!

You obviously haven't played Super Mario 3D Land, while I really enjoyed LBP2 and I loved what I played of Rayman Origins, which I'll be buying for PS Vita, Super Mario 3D Land was a masterful platformer. While Little Big Planet, in my opinion, is a far more content rich and ambitious game, the platforming mechanics are left in the dust by Super Mario 3D Land as they aren't as polished.

Where the heck is Ratchet and Clank?

BTW I'm not surprised of the winner...Mario = GOTY, no matter if there are other games that deserves more... :/

Sonic Generations deserves a nod, was a real return to form. I'm just about to start into Rayman - but I suspect Mario Land is the worthy champ.
