Couple of personal notes. I’m surprised to see All Stars win best fighting game, given the mixed reaction (also the fact that the studio was closed down recently) not to mention the fact that Persona 4: Arena has been such a hit with fans. Also, as much as I like Lee Everett, how could Vaas not win best character?!

What do y’all think?
