    1) Sniff, I'm proud of the guys who made TY GBA. ;)
    2) What's with all the categories with 'no recipient'? You mean nobody was even NOMINATED? What does this say about these awards? I could have nominated myself for outstanding industry contribution and would have won. Good grief!

    the "No Recipient" can't mean nobody was nominated, as i know a few different games nominated for that award. I'd like to know why they decided to go "No Recipient?"

    "Career Achievement Award - John De Margheriti, Micro Forte"

    what the?!! the guy who owns the industry gets the awards? hehehe this is a corker.
    Somehow the Rome:Total War guys missed out - obviously too sub standard.

    #4 - C'mon, at least give reasons for your opinion, and what you thought was better and why. Just blurting out that is just trolling at best.

    Well Scotarama was voted 1st by the public and industry people attending the conference so it obviously deserved to win, you cant lie to people in the know. I was at the expo and saw all the games and I thought they ALL did a top job. Well done.
