Before we start to get hit with all the news out of ATEI I figured it would be good to ‘finalize’ the results of our GOTY 2008 polls. The polls remain open but I think that we already have our winners, so in case you haven’t gone back a few pages to check the results, here they are.
For the arcades, it was not surprising who won this one – Street Fighter IV. As a runner-up came Sega Rally 3, and behind that was the fighter BlazBlue. It should be interesting to see what will be the big hit for 2009 but we’ll only know in about a year.
For pinball, the selection was far smaller but the poll still garnered a decent number of votes and the winner of that one would be Batman. The runner-up to that would be Indiana Jones (which I thought would win).
So congrats to the teams of people that put these games together, you pleased the players, which in turn pleases everyone else down the line.
