Game of your life

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Best Game Direction

Hard to quantify this. I guess Portal could be a good contender.

Best Art Direction

Paper Mario: TTYD (again), Okami, Cuphead, Yoshi's Island, Zelda: Wind Waker

Best Narrative

Mother 3, Phoenix Wright 1, Persona 4, Undertale,

Best Score

Chrono Trigger, Paper Mario: TTYD, Diddy Kong Racing, Smash Bros franchise, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Chibi-Robo, Ace Attorney 1 & 3, several Zelda games, Okami, several Pokemon games, Undertale, Terranigma Donkey Kon Country 1 & 2,

Best Audio design

Super Metroid, Silent Hill 2,

Best Indie

This is not a genre, and the definition for 'Indie' has gotten to the point were it's just a small development team.

Best Action

Platinum and Treasure owns this category

Best Action/Adventure

Several Zelda games, Okami, Resident Evil 4, Terranigma (Action RPG, but still counts), Shadow of the Colossus

Best Role Playing Game

Paper Mario: TTYD, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Mother 3, Pokemon B/W 1&2, HG/SS, Platinum, Persona 4,

Best Sports/Racing

F-Zero GX, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart 8,

Best Fighting

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Best Multiplayer

Melee, Mario Kart 8 (30fps though in 4 player...), Tetris Attack, Pokemon Stadium 2 minigames

Best sim/strategy

Not my cup of tea

Best family game

People have a family who enjoy games to this level? I'm jealous



2D/3D platformer category is also missing here. Why? That is probably the biggest genre in gaming.
