Wii games pepper nomination list for E3 awards
The Game Critics Association has released their list of nominations for the best of E3, and Nintendo is all over the place -- particularly with Super Mario Galaxy and Wii Fit. The DS may have been spurned for anything other than the handheld category, but the Wii sure seems to be holding its own against the 360 and PS3. Unfortunately, however, none of the Wii titles made it into the nominations for Best of Show.

We'll skip over multiplatform titles like Guitar Hero III, but Wii games showed up in several categories:
  • Best Social/Casual/Puzzle Game (Wii Fit, Zack & Wiki)
  • Best Fighting Game (WWE SmackDown vs RAW 2008)
  • Best Action/Adventure Game (Super Mario Galaxy)
  • Best Action Game (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
  • Best Hardware (Balance Board, Zapper)
  • Best Console Game (Super Mario Galaxy)
  • Best Original Game (Wii Fit, de Blob)
An interesting mix of games -- some expected, some surprises. The winners will be announced next Tuesday. Think a few Wii games will pull out wins?
