The viewers voted:
CHARACTER OF THE YEAR (MARK HAMIL)
The game ‘Batman Arkham City’ was also a contender in the following categories (other than the ones mentioned above)
GAME OF THE YEAR
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
BEST PERFORMANCE BY HUMAN MALE (MARK HAMIL)
BEST PERFORMANCE BY HUMAN FEMALE (TARA YOUNG)
GAMETRAILERS TRAILER OF THE YEAR (HUGO STRANGE TRAILER)
