Overall Game of the Year: Minecraft
- It's an easy choice. No game I've played in the past year, or several years in fact, has given me as much enjoyment. The £8 I paid for it is simply the best value for money I've received for something in a long, long time. Hours at a time are lost to this game and every other week it's updated and refined with new stuff. It's quite possibly going into my top 5 games of all time, it's that good.Best Action/Adventure Game: Minecraft
- See above...Best Fighter: Super Street Fighter IV
- Awesome upgrade to the already fantastic original.Best Platformer:
Not played any but I'm confident enough to say Mario Galaxy 2Best Puzzle Game: Layton - Unwound Future
- More puzzles, more plot. It's just awesome.Best Racing Game: NFS: Hot Pursuit
- The only time I've ever bought a racing game day 1. Excellent title.Best RPG:
Been a quiet year for me RPG wise but it's between Demon Souls and Pokémon Soul Silver.... Demon SoulsBest Rythym/Music Game: Rock Band 3
- From what I've seen and read it's the pinnacle of the genre. Just need to get round to buying it now.Best Shooter:
It's definitely either Reach or Bad Company 2. Both excellent games, but for sheer hours spent on it, I'm going to go for Bad Company 2.Best Sports Game:
Don't play them, but FIFA 11
was good fun from the one match I played.Best Strategy Game:
Starcraft II or Civ V. Very tough to choose from. Still playing both at a snails pace but I think Starcraft II
has to take it. Simply for the sheer polish Blizzard have bestowed upon it.The Oddball Award: Minecraft
- It's unlike anything I've ever played. It's Farmville, mixed with Left 4 Dead and a big box of Lego.Import Game of the Year: Pokémon Black/White
- A nice step up from the last generation. Nice upgrades to keep it looking reasonably fresh. Only let down is the new 'mon.
Best New Downloadable Game: Minecraft
- It's downloadable. Ergo it wins.Best Downloadable Content: Red Dead Redemption - Undead Nightmare
- Awesome update that takes a great game in a new direction.The Innovation Award: Minecraft
- See oddball. There's nothing like it.Best Visuals: Heavy Rain
- Thought it was a great looking game.Best Audio: Minecraft
- Very subtle. Sound effects that can make you gooseberry fool yourself, combined with serene incidental music that kicks in every so often. Faultless for me.Best Multiplayer:
Bad Company 2, Minecraft or NFS:Hot Pursuit I think. They're the games I've spent the most time with (Or in NFS case can see myself spending time with) and loved every second of it. I think Minecraft
might take it as well. With the addition of monsters and proper health in the multiplayer mode it's truly become fleshed out. Plus what else lets you build an awesome castle with mates, then defend it from a zombie, spider and creeper assault?
