Here's the problem, you guys are picking for Game of the year game that have been out for a while. UT2k3 came out last year, didn't it?

I know Quake 3 has been out for a while.

This is kind of off subject but....

Why is everybody nominating UT2003?

I've played it and it ... SUCKS!

Which kind of pi$$ed me of!
I love Unreal and Unreal tournament but UT2003 was dissapointing.
