It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.

Games consoles are still generally untouched from the genre that is the MMO so far this generation, but this job application over at Cryptic Studios strongly hints at their upcoming MMO, Star Trek Online, could well be coming to the PS3.

The game was always confirmed for the PC and was said to be coming to “consoles” but which one(s) was never specified, and this job posting does strengthen the rumours that the game could well be making it’s way to the PS3.

Hey, we’ve all killed our fair share of people, wrecked our fair share of cars and basically saved/destroyed the Omniverse at one time or another. It’s what games are there for, right?
