Best Visuals: Liberation Maiden
Best Sound: Cave Story
Best 3D: Mutant Mudds
Best Overall Presentation: Liberation Maiden
Best Gameplay: Cave Story
Best Longevity: The Denpa Men: They Came by Wave
Best Overall: The Denpa Men: They Came by Wave

Worst Visuals: Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D
Worst Sound: Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D
Worst 3D: Family Tennis 3D
Worst Overall Presentation: Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D
Worst Gameplay: Mutant Mudds
Worst Longevity: NightSky
Worst Overall: Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D

A couple things to take note of
1). I'll only nominate games I actually have.

2). Don't read too much into my "worst of" list. I only buy games I know I'm going to enjoy, so even the "worst" of the games I mentioned (Outdoors Unleashed) gets a solid 7/10 from me, and I love Family Tennis 3D, Mutant Mudds, & NightSky, they just slightly let me down in those particular areas.

3). I'd like to give out a few extra honors:

Best Overlooked Gem: Family Tennis 3D
Best Fresh Idea: NightSky
Best New Character: Shoko (Liberation Maiden)
Best Story: Cave Story

Are we accepting VC and Dsiware? Because imo there haven't been thaaaat many releases in the 3dsware category to warrant an award show. Anyway-

Best Visuals: Hana Samurai: Art of the Sword (not sure if this was released for NA in 2011, it was certainly 2012 for PAL)
Best Sound: Liberation Maiden (and all those catchy boss themes)
Best 3d: Mutant Mudds
Best overall presentation: Fallblox
Best Gameplay: Speedthru: Potzol's Puzzle (I guess you probably know it as Ketzal's Corridors)
Best Longevity: Dillon's Rolling Western
Best overall game: Speedthru: Potzol's Puzzle

Worst Visuals: SpeedX 3D
Worst Sound: Picross E (not that it was bad, except a single music track for ~10 hours game time is pretty meh)
Worst 3D: Bird Mania 3D
Worst Overall Presentation: Planet Crashers
Worst Gameplay: Planet Crashers
Worst Longevity: Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH!
Worst Overall: SpeedX 3D

Took me a while to even remember which games came out this year...
(Also worth noting that this is a PAL list, and only consisting of games that I've downloaded)

Best Visuals: Liberation Maiden
Best Sound: VVVVVV
Best 3D: N/A - I usually play with 3D turned off so can't really judge
Best overall presentation: Fallblox
Best Gameplay: Fallblox
Best Longevity: Marvel Pinball 3D
Best overall game: Fallblox

Worst Visuals: SpeedX 3D
Worst Sound: Too tough to remember one specific game
Worst 3D: N/A
Worst overall presentation: Planet Crashers
Worst Gameplay: Planet Crashers
Worst Longevity: Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH (or maybe Samurai Sword Destiny)
Worst overall game: Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH (Planet Crashers was pretty crap and ridiculously overpriced, but nothing can compete with Fun! Fun!)

Still waiting on Denpa Men which I imagine will be right up there with the best ones, and Mighty Switch Force! only missed out on best overall by being ten days early.

@Rainbow Crasher, shouldn't "Least Underrated" be reworded as "Most Overrated", as that's the opposite of "Most Underrated"? Anywho, I'll add those to my list.
