Last month we told you about the second annual Xbox Live Arcade Awards and encouraged you to go support your favorite independent games… and support you did. Over 185,000 of our loyal readers (Like there’s any better place to get your information.) downloaded the application from the Marketplace and cast their votes.
You guys love some Castle Crashers, giving it three awards including Game of the Year. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix took home three also, most notably Best Remake. Sadly, Braid, one of our favorites here at TVGB Manor, came away with only Best Original Game. Check the full list below but do not cry for the losers, it was just an honor to be nominated, right? Right?!?!
