they got payed probably...
IMO, too much for fable II to compete with. much rather play oblivion.
w00t MGS4 won most of the slots out there. it should've won GOTY too.

GOTY must have been exempt from winning any other awards... or that doesn't make any sense.

excuse my language, but that's a ****ing joke. There's so many less hyped games that crap all over fable 2 its not even funny. Hell, a lot of OVERRATED games are better. Dead space would have been my choice if you had to pick something mainstream. But no review site/show is credible it seems.

NFL? Seriously? NHL 09!

Seriously? Fable II was an "okay" game, but its definitely not "Game of the Year" material. Hell, the original Fable was more enjoyable than Fable II. :\\ Something like Fallout 3 would've been a better choice.

Bleh, G4 is fail anyway.

I can buy it. If you approached Fable 2 as being Microsofts Zelda then yeh it was a mega flop. If you approach Fable 2 as the Sims set in a fictional pre-industrial European world with magic and monsters then its GOTY award is more than deserved.
