Kotaku's 2007 Games of the Year and Overall Game of the Year

Kotaku's Brian Crecente writes:

"Our first-ever Game of the Year awards was a pretty straight forward deal. I asked all of the writers to submit a list of three games for each category and the three that showed up most in each category made it as a finalist. Once we had the list of finalists I asked each writer to go through and order the finalists and then tallied the vote. The one with the most points was named Game of the Year, the runner-up was named Not Quite Game of the Year. The game with the most votes for Worst Game of the Year received that dubious honor."

Super Mario Galaxy won Kotaku's Overall Game of the Year award. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune came as second, it won the Not Quite Game of the Year award. (Kotaku posted the overall results as a separate post, see the link at the Alternative Sources below for more details.)

I didn't know that Odin Sphere was that great. I mean, Persona 3 was awesome, I'll have to try this one out I guess.

What idiots at Kotaku. Stop with the LAIR bashing already. Maybe a lot of people didn't like the controls but it definitely can't be considered the worst PS3 game of the year. The controls just take a brain to get used to. Maybe they aren't smart enough to play it. I see a lot of terrible PS3 games that should get that award. A bunch of lazy 360 ports.

I'll have to agree with you. Lair is not the worst. I would had picked Harry Potter...that game was HORRIBLE. I picked it up for $20 and I must say that was the worst 20 bucks spent ever.

That's pretty pleasing news. I'm sure a lot of people will be mad regarding SMG's victory, but I'm just happy to see that Uncharted is beginning to get the recognition it deserves.

Uncharted is good but I'd give Ratchet & Clank Future Game of the Year over it. They need to flip those two.

Nice find and winners. I'd add Mass Effect as 360's runner up as well as a nod for COD4 but overall, solid. I hope BioShock wins overall GOTY.

Every Extend Extra Extreme? Really?

I guess I will have to take another look at that game. I played it for about 5 minutes and it made me want to punch myself in the face.
