Have your say!

We've had a phenomenal year for gaming, with new outings for Mario, Kirby, Link, Sonic and many, many more. As we reach the end of 2011 it's only right to celebrate the best games of the year.

We won't hoard all the voting excitement for ourselves, though — we want you, the lovely Nintendo Life readers, to speak up on what you most enjoyed playing in 2011. Did Super Mario 3D Land do it for you? Was Pushmo/Pullblox one of your stand-out experiences of the last 12 months? What about earlier titles like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective?

There are seven categories below: Game of the Year on Wii, 3DS, DS, eShop, WiiWare, DSiWare and your Overall Game of the Year. If you don't want to cast your vote in any one category — let's say you skipped WiiWare this year — that's fine, simply don't select anything from that box.

The final vote — Overall Game of the Year — is a text-based entry: type in the name of the game you want to vote for and choose it from the drop-down menu that appears. You cannot vote in this category without selecting a game from this drop-down, so pay attention!

Note that only games that had their first English language release in 2011 are eligible for this vote.

Notes: Voting closes at 23:59 GMT on 30th December 2011, but you can come back and change your vote at any time before the closing date. You must be a registered user of Nintendo Life to vote — please login or register before voting. On the rare occasion that your favourite game isn't listed please contact us so we can add it.

Tune in for the results on 31st December 2011!
