Games about war. Love them or hate them, they tend to be phenomenally successful, despite the fact there’s so darn many of them.

Aside from the fact that it definitely wasn’t the “PC Game of the Year” (that honour goes to Audiosurf, in my humble opinion), the game does deserve a decent amount of recognition – it was fantastic and looked incredible. Other winners at the Golden Joysticks included GTA IV, Activision Blizzard, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and Guitar Hero III. A full list of winners is over the jump…

There’s no denying the facts or fudging the issue here – he was copying the game. It’s a 100% confirmed copycat crime. There’s going to be trouble over this. Big trouble.

“He said he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game,” chief police investigator…
