    Almost two years have passed since the NFL extended the exclusive video game license with EA Sports.

    Only two categories remain in the Community Choice Awards and they are the big ones. Best Sports Game of the Year will go up later this week but attention turns now to the one award no series wants - Most Disappointing Game of the Year. The NCAA Football franchise "won" the category two straight years which set up a make-or-break release for it this year. It bounced back strong only to be cancelled due to legalities and feasibility.
