I voted for MK.

Aside from the MK nomination, I'm also tuning in because Konami JPN said that they would give us more info on Metal Gear Solid Rising. :-D

Even though I hate guest characters in this game, I voted for Freddy because I want MK to get as many awards as possible.

Voted all for MK. Disappointed in the GOTY choices. Where was Rage? I voted for Portal 2, even though MK is my GOTY, still playing every other day since release. Love it.
Freddy Krueger will NOT get my vote for best DLC for 2 reasons.

1) He's a pedophile
2) He was once beaten by a 1980s hair band by the name of Dokken
