Special: The best of the best and worst of the worst for the big black box this year.


Adventure Game Award





Winner: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
This Tom Clancy title turned out to be the stealth experience that shouldn't sneak past anyone with an Xbox.
The Runner-Up: Shenmue II


Action Game Award





Winner: MechAssault
Microsoft marched online for a Mech battle that sounds good whether or not you have any interest in mech games at all.
The Runner-Up: Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Platform Game Award





Winner: Jet Set Radio Future
Dreamcast didn't Sell, so Sega Shaded its Cel-Shading experience onto the Xbox with more unique music and gameplay.
The Runner-Up: Blinx: Time Sweeper


First-Person Shooter Award





Winner: Unreal Championship
Unreal Tournament marked its territory online with the PC and now Xbox owners focus their sites on a Live Champsionship.
The Runner-Up: Timeplitters 2


Role-Playing Game Award





Winner: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
There has been very little competition for Morrowoind, however Bethesda Soft would be a tough RPG to match regardless.
The Runner-Up: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance


Sports Award





Winner: NFL 2K3
Sega Sports and its football franchise didn't fumble the chance to play online and rival the likes of Madden on Xbox this year.
The Runner-Up: World Series Baseball


Extreme Sports Award





Winner: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4
Tony Hawk remains extreme 'to the max' in his fourth skate session with more great music, moves, and multiplayer fun.
The Runner-Up: Aggressive Inline

Digital Illusions revved up their racer for release onto the Xbox where it rivals any rally game on this system any almost every other.
The Runner-Up: Sega GT 2002

Disappointing GOTY

As Arnold would say, this game is the ultimate 'party pooper.' Let's hope that T3 won't be a similar letdown in theatres.

Bruce Lee is still a legend to many, and yet his legacy doesn't live on when games like Quest of the Dragon feel marred beyond play.
