It wouldn't be too much of an understatement to say that Nintendo platforms had a mammoth year in 2010 with regards to excellent software.
But we play by Thunderdome rules here at Nintendo Life around award season, and we're handing over a cache of weapons to you. Which is deserving of your Wii or DS Game of the Year? Tell us!
Wii had one of its most diverse years yet with truly something for everyone, playing home to titles ranging from instant-classic platformers Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Donkey Kong Country Returns to punk slasher No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, online gigTdfiant Monster Hunter 3, stealthy GoldenEye 007 and its very own exclusive 2D fighter in the form of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. On the portable front, titles like Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky, Picross 3D and Infinite Space ensured numb legs aplenty.
And despite seeing more than their fair share of incomprehensible garbage, WiiWare and DSiWare each received a horde of gems, from the bizarre Muscle March and Tomena Sanner to a double dose of Cave Story, the return of Shantae as well as the likes of BIT.TRIP RUNNER/FATE and Aura-Aura Climber.
