The results are in for NVIDIA‘s first annual Players Choice Awards. NVIDIA tallied fan votes for games in the following categories: Best Graphics, Best Gameplay and Best Overall. Many great games were available to choose from, including Dark Meadow, Shadowgun THD, Grand Theft Auto III, Riptide GP, Soulcraft THD and more.
Some tough choices, but the fans have spoken. It was almost a clean sweep by Rockstar.
Best Graphics - Shadowgun THD
With its water, damage, aging, and particle effects, Shadowgun THD had little competition in the Best Graphics category.
Best Gameplay - Grand Theft Auto III
GTA III and Shadowgun THD were battling it out in this category, but thanks to full-on game controller support, Rockstar’s game came out ahead.
Best Overall - Grand Theft Auto III
Again, GTA III and Shadowgun THD came to blows for Best Overall. With full 3D stereo on Tegra devices that support 3D, plus the previously mentioned game controller support, GTA III took the crown as Best Overall Game.
Congrats to all two winners!
