Man, dis gon' be gud! 4Chan is apparently in the midst of creating its very own Game of the Year awards, and I'm actually really looking forward to it. If anything, you can truly count on 4Chan to be completely and brutally honest. Also -- they have the best categories.
Called the Vidya Gaem Awards, or the /v/GAs for short, the categories are as follows...
- Least Hated Game of the Year the game /v/ hated the least - Most Hated Game of the Year the game /v/ hated the most - Sort of OK Dev Award for developer of the year - Karl Marx Award for most capitalistic publisher - Alright Publisher Award for publisher of the year - "My Eyes are Bleeding" Award for worst graphics - Stylish Aesthetics Award for best aesthetics / art style - Grafics Cat Award for best technical graphics - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Some of the categories are brilliant: Origin, Ubisoft's DRM and Sony's hacking, among others, are all up for the Activision Award for crimes against gaming. Whilst Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Mario Kart 7, and Monster Girl Quest are all up for the 'coveted' 'Least Hated Game of the Year Award'.
Good luck everyone. You'll need it. The awards will be announced on February 11.
