Special: I love you... You hate me...


Adventure Game Award





Winner: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Rockstar once again steals the awards, but this year, the series comes dressed in the style of the 80s before to get the job done.
The Runner-Up: Onimusha 2


Action Game Award





Winner: Contra: Shattered Soldier
It's admireable to see Contra is still confined to 2D and even more extrodinary that it can compete any action game to date.
The Runner-Up: SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs


Platform Game Award





Winner: Ratchet & Clank
Spyro may be spinning out of control while in the hands of Universal, but Insomniac Games has has a tight grip this dynamic looking duo.
The Runner-Up: Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus


First-Person Shooter Award





Winner: TimeSplitters 2
Free Radical can't seem to shake that GoldenEye 007 connection with another fast-paced FPS that has everything except online play.
The Runner-Up: Medal of Honor: Frontline


Role-Playing Game Award





Winner: Kingdom Hearts
Square and Disney may be an odd match on paper, but playing the end result once will keep you hooked until it's been beat.
The Runner-Up: Suikoden III


Sports Award





Winner: Madden NFL 2003
EA Sports doesn't seem to be loosing a step on the field and online match-ups make this football game first string in our playbook.
The Runner-Up: High Heat Baseball 2003


Extreme Sports Award





Winner: Aggressive Inline
Acclaim made a big impact when Aggressive Inline took off earlier this year. In fact, it was enough to knock off Tony Hawk for one year at least.
The Runner-Up: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4


Racing Award





Winner: Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
In addition to speeding away with our prize for racing, Hot Pursuit 2 might have also taken first if we had an award for best commerical.

Surprise GOTY





Winner: Rez
Sega took a unique approach by combining both shooter and music apsects into one. Out of nowhere and unfortunately out of print.
The Runner-Up: Suikoden III


Disappointing GOTY

Just months after Rockstar released GTA3, everyone looked down the release list to see this game. However, no one really saw all that much.
The Runner-Up: BMX XXX


Worst GOTY

My. God. Worst. Game. This. Year. This awful game with an irritating name shouldn't be in stores for fear of contamination to other quality products.
