GJ07: Zelda is Nintendo game of the year

"What? Not Wii Sports?!" we hear you cry

It was surely a close call, but Link's latest Hylian quest, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, has piped Wii Sports to the Nintendo Game of the Year 2007 - sponsored by Official Nintendo Magazine.

The stunning adventure, which was released on both Wii and GameCube, may not have shown off the Wii Remote's capabilities as well as Wii Sports, but its huge, rich world, amazing exploration and mounds of typical Zelda charm earns it the kudos it deserves.

Link and Co. also beat Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, Call of Duty 3 and Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition to the gong.
