Gamespot's Best and Worst of 2005 Nominees

Charlize TheronGamespot has kicked off their Best and Worst of 2005 awards extravaganza by announcing a list of all the nominees and the awards they are eligible for. Of course, the DS wormed its way into several of the categories, only getting truly snubbed in the "Best Use of Sweat" section. Come on developers, get your act together! We want sweat!

DS Nominations:

Funniest Game -
Animal Crossing: Wild World (What? No Mario & Luigi?)
Best Multiplayer Game - Mario Kart DS (duh)
Most Innovative Game - Trauma Center: Under the Knife, Trace Memory
Flat-Out Worst Game - Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects, Peter Jackson's King Kong (note how both of these games lack realistic sweat)
Best Action Adventure Game - Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Best Platformer - Kirby Canvas Curse, Sonic Rush
Best Adventure Game - Trace Memory, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Best Driving Game - Mario Kart DS
Best Puzzle/Rhythm Game - Meteos
Best Strategy Game - Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Best Nintendo DS Game - Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Mario Kart DS, Nintendogs

There you have it. What are your predictions? Is there a DS game you feel got left out or didn't deserve a nomination?

1. Mario Kart DS just should freaking win everything, and Charlize Theron should win an award for her portrayal of Peach in the Made-For-TV (G4) movie.

I laughed, I cried. It moved me, Bob.

But honestly. Mario Kart DS = love, to a slightly less extent than We Love Katamari. I do think Mario Kart should get the sweat nomination, though.

2. Mario & Luigi should be on the funniest, or at least in the action/adventure/platformer game nominations (why no RPG nominations?)

Overall it looks good.

3. No Oeundan??

4. What I find interesting is the fact that all the games there are exclusive to the DS, except for the two "Flat-Out Worst" games.
