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

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

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

Sega took a unique approach by combining both shooter and music apsects into one. Out of nowhere and unfortunately out of print.

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.
