Gamefly has calculated their votes and it looks like Gamefly owners really love Fallout 3 as they chose it for their game of the year.  The game also the best Xbox 360 game of the year, beating out Gears of War 2, Fable 2, and every other Microsoft first party title.  Metal Gear Solid 4 picked up best PS3 game and Super Smash Brothers picked up best Wii game.  What do you think of the selections?  Personally I would have picked Little Big Planet and Boom Blox for the best PS3 and Wii game but that's me.  Leave your thoughts in the comments.
