Fifa is a strange choice. I mean, it's one of only two games I play regularly (the other being NHL), but I appreciate most people have longer attention spans for games than me:) I'd have thought Deus Ex or AC would have been more likely choices.

I'm really happy to see a heap of the really meaningful awards going to the same company that are making Thief 4!

I'm super excited about Thief 4. Go Eidos Montreal!
