The game that proves 2D is not dead

Winner: LittleBigPlanet
OK, yes, we know it's got 3D graphics. But stripped of its visuals, LittleBigPlanet is a pure 2D platformer; you can't move from the foreground to the background at will. And with its creative, free-form building and YouTube-inspired model for enabling users to upload and download levels, LittleBigPlanet is nothing less than a revolution for 2D games. That it's also one of the most hotly anticipated things on the PS3 right now should tell you something.

Runner-up: Contra 4
Side-scrollers haven't been in vogue for over a decade, but you wouldn't know it by the number of excited geeks whispering feverishly about the bullet-soaked return of Contra.
