The Games Convention is wrapping up. With the end of the show, comes the awards. 85 nominees in nine categories, software and hardware. Maro and Sonic at the Olympics, alongside heavy hitters Super Mario Galaxy and Wii Fit, was nominated for best Wii game, over other notable titles such as Metroid Prime 3 and Zack and Wiki (NiGHTS wasn’t playable, therefore not eligible for the award).
