Game of the Year: The Results

December 9, 2007

So after a month of voting the results are in and the winner is a not a total surprise considering it’s following. Can you guess what it is yet? (yes I know I’ve given it away with the picture!)

And the winner is………………… Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5!

Following up closely in joint second are Global VR’s Alien Extermination and Sega’s Outrun 2 SP Super Deluxe. Finally in third place is Sega’s 2 Spicy. So a pretty good result for Sega, although as one of the big forces in the coin-op biz you would expect this.

With Global VR coming in joint second, I think it may show that Sega will have some competition for the next Arcade Heroes’ GOTY. I think with games like NASCAR and America’s Army coming out and with games like Blazing Angels in the pipeline, VR has a very strong line up. Of course that’s not to say Sega or any of the other companies don’t either! We will just have to wait and see!

Special mentions have to go out to the following games that game came very close to getting in to the top three. Those games are; F&F: Tokyo Drift, Let’s Go Jungle, Mario Kart GP 2, Maximum Tune 3, Silent Hill Arcade and last, and by no means least, The Act.

So seeing as we are coming up to our first birthday and as we creep closer and closer to have achieved 100,000 hits we thought what better way to celebrate than to hold a poll on your game of the year (released in the UK and/or North America).

Granted it’s not the most original idea in the world, although saying that there is still a general lack of arcade websites out there and we may even by the only one that’s doing anything like this.

So check out the list of games below (if there’s any games you think we’ve missed let us know via the comments), and then hit……..
