Many will say that there is more to a game's graphics then how realistic they can be. Seeing as how we agree with these people we created a second award for graphics. This award is all about style, and how a game does not need ultra-realism to succeed, just great flair. The nominees are:
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Little Big Planet 2
The winner of the category is Bastion. Between the colorful world and the way the land appears as you walk this was an easy choice to make. While it had a relatively low budget they made a really beautiful game. Here is to seeing more games like this in the coming years.
