- Person of the Year -- Hideo Kojima
This is a man that not only has time to pen the complex and convoluted script behind Metal Gear Solid 4, but will star in weird videos meant solely for fanboys. That's a man you can respect.
- Rookie Title Prize -- The Last Remnant
Perhaps "rookie" is a good word to use for Square Enix's RPG that almost played at a respectable framerate on a system that almost sold well in Japan.
- Innovation Prize -- Wii Music
This game innovated by being the first Nintendo-developed Wii game that didn't sell billions of copies.
- Game of the Year & Best Seller Prize -- Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G
We love it when "best selling" means simply "the best." In America, the best game of 2008 is Wii Play.
