i'm still on the first level. not because i suck at it. just because i want to do it over and over again to try harder. almost beat level 9 intensity! which, for me, is an acheivement and a half. I suck at multiplayer though. some things never change. still glad it won though..
and here's my FC 2594-9874-0768

OH! and my NNID is MartynIsAdequate. Not as hilarious as it did first time round. Contact if interested!

Uprising deserved to win. Nintendo should give Pit a bit more TLC. (No, not Terminal Lung Cancer.)

If what the games' director says is anything to go by, I'm afraid they have. :(

Justly deserved, it's by far Nintendo's best game this year. Really amazing stuff.

Sakurai was just referring to himself making a new one, not Nintendo. I don't think Nintendo are going to ignore Pit completely. He'll make a big return in Smash Bros. after all. But Kid Icarus: Uprising was like three games in one, anyway, so I don't feel like he's been forgotten.

Star Fox and F-Zero on the other hand...

Won it for me for it's hilariously cheesy and at times self-mocking dialogue. :)

Felt Kid Icarus Uprising 100% deserves it. Best 3DS game I've had the pleasure of playing, looks really good, its very funny, yes the controls are awkward, but nothings perfect. Well done everyone who voted (including me), my faith in humanity is restored

Best Nintendo game anyway. Though, thats not saying much, I feel there was a drought of good Nintendo games this year... we have a Pokemon Game for the DS launch, another New Super Mario Bros and a lackluster Paper Mario. Kid Icarus was really the only thing that offered anything fresh, and it was a joy to play.

My best game of the year would have gone to Mass Effect 3.
