Game Critics Award Winners announced

The annual Game Critics Award winners have finally been released, much to the elation and delight of the winners and the certain soul-crushing dismay of those who didn't quite take home the trophy. We would mention how surprised we are that Excite Truck managed to pull in best racing game honors or that Wii Sports has trumped publisher Electronic Arts' sports dynasties Madden and NCAA Football, as well as the NBA 2K series from 2K Sports - but given that Wii managed to pull in best of show, it all makes sense somehow. Clearly, Wii wowed a lot of people.



Anyhow, the awards in total shook down as follows (sorry, BioShock - you deserved something ):
