Action Game Award





Winner: Super Monkey Ball Jr.
Those who enjoy Sega's big ape brother on GameCube will surely find this multiplayer monkey of a game to be an excellent port.

Whenever Sonic appears in an new game, there's no beating his speed-demon attitude, especially in classic form.
The Runner-Up: Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

Duke was able to dominate in a challenging genre with his girls, guns, and glory attitude intact on the handheld system.

It may not be the World Series, but Sega is still a Home Run King thanks to the good, clean fun Baseball Advance boasts at bat.

Tony Hawk remains extreme 'to the max' in his fourth skate session with more great music, moves, and linking fun.

As we gear up for the third installment Driver, Sennari Interactive put us in reverse for a stunning handheld adaption of the second game.

Disappointing GOTY





Winner: Sega Smash Pack
We all looked forward to revisiting Sega's classics, but the mere lineup of games and unfortunate changes didn't stack up well in the end.
The Runner-Up: Gauntlet: Dark Legacy


Worst GOTY





Winner: Mortal Kombat Advance
It might have released in 2001, but we didn't get a chance to bash it until earlier the next year. And, we feel it can't go without receiving this award once.
