This is it. This is where it’s all been leading. We’ve got our sparkly gold envelope in hand and the two best celebrities we could afford* are about to take to the stage and announce the grand winner.
This final overall winner is the game which we thought was the absolute best, the most enjoyable or impressive, of the year. It could have been from any platform, any distribution method and any style of control. In this category Angry Birds faced off against Halo: Reach, Dance Central stared cooly into the eyes of Mass Effect 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood stabbed God of War III in the throat and disappeared into the crowd before the police cruisers from Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit could arrive.
