Wii Runs the Show, Best Video Games, 2006

So G4 – the “video game” channel, which aside from also showing loads of Star Trek: TNG, is reportedly the lowest rated channel on cable television (yes, after Cornerstone and all of the crappy home shopping network shows) – has released their Best of 2006 Video Game List… think of it as the Emmy’s of button pushing…

I was all smiles to see games for Nintendo (mostly the Wii, but also some DS action) getting 6 out of 11 awards, particularly considering it’s only been out for about a month and a half now…

  • Action/Adventure: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
  • Fighting: Dragonball Z
  • Racing: Flatout 2 (XBox)
  • RPG: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (XBox)
