Its the end of the year, no really we couldnt have held it any later

It’s been a big year for gaming and for Nintendo, we’ve seen the ups and downs of the Nintendo 3DS, the Wii enter old age (in console years) and the DS hovering around the background doing something. We’ve seen remakes of old games, new entries in the Mario, Mario Kart and Zelda series. It’s been spectacular.

And now it’s time to distill all that hard work into a vote.

We’ve got a couple of new categories this year thanks to the 3DS and we’ve retired a couple others. But voting is simple, pick from the lists below for each category (or submit your own submission with other) and the one with the most votes wins.
