RPGCodex has an interesting take on the GameSpy awards here, noting:
As per its regrettable yearly habit, GameSpy has posted its 2006 Game of the Year lineup for PC. Apologies in advance for the length of this newspost, but 2006's GOTY account features delectable surprises for RPG aficionados:
And they go on to point out some 'interesting' stuff, most notably the cognitive dissonance of simultaneously giving Oblivion RPGotY and #2 overall, while also giving Mod of the Year to something that reworks many of the games flaws …
So, to recap: Oblivion is RPG of the Year and #2 on the list of best PC games of 2006, but it lacks "a feeling of progression", "satisfying" victories, and apparently even logic - all of which OOO introduces, thereby winning Mod of the Year.
