PC Roleplaying Gamers' Choice Award --World of Warcraft

GOTY List WoWPC Roleplaying Gamers' Choice Award --World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade

Talk about your close races: The Witcher and World of Warcraft were in a statistical dead heat for the majority of the voting. We almost declared it a tie, but a last minute rally by WoW fans pushed one of the best expansion packs of the year over the top.

We already know that World of Warcraft is an amazing title: it's been on our hard drives for years and still has most of the GameSpy editorial department hooked. But the real surprise this year was The Witcher, coming on strong. Often great games like this from unknown developers get missed in the holiday rush, but it's good to see that GameSpy readers haven't let this one slide by -- without a doubt, The Witcher is the best single-player RPG experience you can get on the PC. The people have spoken!
