Joysticks: Brawl smashes Galaxy in the face

Best Nintendo game goes to Super Smash Bros. Brawl

We're in a little bit of shock here as the winner of the Nintendo Game Of The Year, sponsored by Official Nintendo Magazine, was called out. We had our monies on Super Mario Galaxy, bet you did too. But we're not betting people (we lose to many times) and we're glad for that. We don't like losing.

So you voted Super Smash Bros. Brawl as the best Nintendo game of the past year.

Nintendo's first-party beat-'em-up has gone down a storm around the world and it seems you lot like it too. Super Mario Galaxy came a close second, stalked by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
