BioShock wins again!

Gaming Nintendo PlayStation 3 RPGs Sci-Fi & Fantasy Xbox 360


I swear I’m going to stop writing about how great BioShock is…soon. First I have to tell you how it and other video games did on X-Play’s annual video game awards last night. As a new viewer, I fell in love with G4 this year mainly because of Attack of The Show and X-Play. They are great shows for people just like me, and if you’re reading this blog, probably you too. It was a fantastic year for video games, especially if you’re an Xbox 360 owner. No offense to folks with other consoles, but there is just no comparison to the wealth of really good games offered on the 360 this year, and this is proven by all of the video game awards those titles are getting. Here’s a link to watch videos of all the winners, and here they are in textual form:
