Hey guys i just got the results from the Art os video game results from today.

http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/archive/2012/games/winninggames.pdf

All i got to say is WOW i can't believe Okami beat KH2 and FFX.
I got the email too. I'm only slightly disappointed that neither KHII nor FFX was picked.

I'm happy that some of my other favorites made it (Sonic Adventure, Wind Waker, FFVII, FF Tactics, Twilight Princess, etc).

I'm VERY upset that FFXIII didn't make the cut though.

I knew that Zelda Wind Waker was going to win but i voted Paper mario 2 because it was the best GC game i played even though i play Wind waker.

I'm disappointed that Fire Emblem got beat out by Pikmin 2.

Also, I still don't understand their nomination process. Sure, Metroid Prime 2 was released more recently than 1, and it had better graphics, but I'm pretty sure most people would agree that 1 was far superior. Also, I'm kinda sad that Metroid Prime Trilogy didn't get anything, since it has absolutely stunning art direction. Then again, it was competing against Mario, so I suppose it never realistically stood a chance.

...how was KHII even nominated? I mean, it's not profound or innovative in any way whatsoever. I'd sooner say the original, because it pulled off a crossover so well and ended up evolving into its own series.

I got this too. The results were exactly what I expected. So I had no reason to be disappointed or surprised.

So going to see this exhibit. *awaits March 16, 2012*

Me too, that's exactly what I thought when I read the mail
I can believe it. I would play Okami over the two any day, Okami left a bigger impression on me personally.

I'm glad Zelda is in every Nintendo category, which was expected. Also notice that it comes in as number 2 every time.

All I needed to know. Clearly there are still people who know what they are talking about.
Yup I agree... Okami was a revolutionary style of game... it was the closest thing to a Legend of Zelda game for the PS2
except with a japanese twist which made it a fresh new way to present a overused format of game.

how is this surprising in any way?
It isn't at all... I wasn't surprised that Shadow of the collosus beat even God of War... But I was surprised when they naminated Tony Hawk's underground 2
