Okami Nominated for Best Game 2006

Second posting today, I know, but the GDC nominations are out! Yay! I am SO excited about this nomination for Okami. Although I embarassingly haven't had a chance to play it yet, it looks and sounds absolutely amazing, as you can tell from the WomenGamers review. But most importantly, it's a stark departure from the usual testosterone-fueled war and/or sports games that usually get all the props. In fact, the Game Developer Choice Awards nominees are fairly well-rounded this year, with Gears of War, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Wii Sports rounding out the list for best game, Bully getting a nom for writing, and Viva Pinata earning itself 3 design-related noms (character design, game design and visual arts).
