    Thanks to jph for posting these results. Normally, Nintendo Power and I don't always see eye to eye on their DS reviews, but I have to admit, grudgingly, that I can't complain too much with their award choices for 2008. I would have given Game of the Year to The World Ends With You, but Kirby would be in my top 3, so, not too bad. They were dead-on with their awards for Best Puzzle, Best Graphics, Best Rpg, Best Story/Writing and Best Rythm Game. The only other change I would make is on the Best New Character Award. Personally, you could choose any one of 3 or 4 characters from TWEWY as the winner in this category. Shade from Sonic Chronicles was ok, but not the best imo. But overall, not bad NP.

    DS:

    Kirby Super Star Ultra -> Game of the Year, Best Platformer
    Professor Layton and the Curious Village -> Best Puzzle
    The World Ends With You -> Best Graphics, Best RPG, Best Story/Writing
    Best Music/Rhythm Game -> Guitar Hero: World Tour
    Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (Shade) -> Best New Character


    Wii:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl -> Best Original Score, Best Graphics, Game of the Year, Best Multiplayer, Best Fighting Game,
    Megaman 9 -> Wiiware Game of the Year, Best Shooter/Action Game
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl -> Best Graphics
    Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People -> Best Sound/Voice Acting
    Okami -> Best Adventure Game
    Mario Super Sluggers -> Best Sports Game
    Mario Kart Wii -> Best Racing Game, Best Online Functionality
    Animal Crossing: City Folk -> Best Alternative Game
