Is that better or worse voter turnout than the average presidential election?

How do you vote on which game is the "Best Selling"?

I'd guess they ask you to check which games you've bought then tally a total and list which ever game had the highest number, seems simple enough.

How is Pac-Man best Original game?

I'd agree with most of these. It would be interesting to see how EvAv differs.

Bomberman was great until the map packs came out and was tooooo expensive to keep up on the game.

Have you played Championship Edition? It's friggin awesome. While the concepts are the same, it's a brand new game from the ground up.

Dollar votes? Micro-economics, Bap! Capitalism! I know your name is red, but I didn't think you were. ;)

I always thought original meant, you know, conceptually speaking.

Okay, Konami. Time to put Dracula X Chronicles on XBLA.

Best original game, not most original game.

Wow, all the best stuff is just a pile of retreads, ay? I'd have to disagree.

Where's UNO man? F'ing the best.

The choices were pre-biased, as you had only 5 to pick from each category, unless you wanted to "write-in" your answer. Which rarely does you any good. So these awards, while not totally off base, are bunk IMHO.

Best original game, not most original game.

Ah, so semantics. Original means "remade". I'll have to remember that next time there's a bicker over sequelitis.

I took part in the voting, and the last 4 categories weren't included. They just added those as more information.

Played it a few times with ClannerDelta, it's entertaining for a little while. Hard though, very hard.

Definitely not worthy of best co-op.

It didn't come out last year, it was before that.

The new Pac-Man is excellent. And I'm glad Worms is on there... there is still hope for humanity.

They charged money for Bomberman map packs? That's low.
Edit: I see the packs also include new characters and modes.

It doesn't mean original as in "unique concept." It means "original" as in " a title that is only available on 360 Arcade," an original title.

Rez was this year.

And TMNT is such a terrible game. The game itself is bad, but this version is even worse. Lots of slow down, lag, and it even ripped me off out of achievements on at least five occasions. How the hell do you screw up programming achievements?

You want a good co-op game, spend that $5 on Contra or Streets of Rage, both of which have had a lot of improvements in the online play since their initial release. Most of the time they run pretty smooth.

Other than the TMNT picks, I agree with most of them. Castlevania is easily the best value on Live Arcade and Bomberman is the best version since the Saturn one (though far inferior to that version still). And you can always find a good game of it as it has a healthy community of regular players.
