Editor’s Notes

I could not in all logic post best the Best Magazine winner, because the guy who runs that site is a jerk, and one of the best site I know wasn’t even nominated and no it’s not mine. But you got to be kidding Best Game Major / Minor? I have seen some call that game bloatware, and no better than any 16 bit title. That choice I do not understand. Like Best Website, can any of you look at their choice of winner with a straight face. Yeah I know a lot of people use it, but the site crashes every couple of days.
