Last month some Microsoft folks contacted me to see if I would vote on which Xbox Live Arcade games should make the final cut for the first-ever Xbox Live Arcade Awards. It looks like they've had a chance to tabulate the votes of all of their "panel of industry experts" to come up with their short list for the public vote.

The award winners in six categories will be announced at the Game Developers Conference next month. Hit the jump to see the finalists and the link to vote.
