Kotaku Awards: Mobile And Handheld Games

Hey guys, we're about to kick off our Kotaku Game of the Year awards, and this year we want your vote! This week we're going to be asking you guys for nominations for each award, before putting it to a vote next week.

Today it's the turn of mobile and handheld gaming.

Mobile and handheld can be anything from DS or PSP games to iPhone or iPad games. It also incorporates Android and anything else of that nature - so get to nominatin'!

So what'll it be? Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker? Angry Birds? Let us know in the comment below.


    Game Dev Story (iPhone). Tell me I'm wrong, Serrels! That game is like digital crack.

      Dudebro. You're not wrong. I missed an entire wedding because of that game, and the only reason I stopped was because my battery went dead.

        It's gotta be game dev story

          I hate you all. Picked this up today based on you three and have not stopped. Thanks. ( I love it)

    I'd hate to say it, but I'm more addicted to iJewewls than anything else :S

    If that baby ain't in contention, then Angry Birds gets my vote :)

    From what I've played of the Japanese version, Golden Sun Dark Dawn is my pick. Valkyria Chronicles 2 was a joy to play too.

    I haven't had much to do with mobile gaming so I'm a lil blank on it. I'll throw in my, more than, two cents for nominations:

    Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker
    Super Scribblenauts
    God of War: Ghost of Sparta
    Valkyria Chronicles II
    Professor Layton and the Unwound Future/Lost Future (I can't remember which is US or AUS name, and I pretty import all games from US these days anyway.)
    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
    Korg DS-10 PLUS
    Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver
    Angry Birds (I think the first chapter came out 2009 but then later ones, and Android release, were this year.)

    Monster Dash and Trainyard

    Aussie Devs FTW!!!!!!

    Wow, looking back on my DS collection it looks like 2010 was a quiet year for that too. Nothing particularly notable except for Mega Man Zero and maybe Infinite Space (still haven't played it yet). And Super Scribblenauts I suppose. And possibly Ivy the Kiwi.

    Golden Sun DS, Valkyria Chronicles II, Layton

    Apps: Cut the rope, Rage HD, Reckless Racing

    for mobile my favourite is Hector: Badge of Carnage.

    my favourite handheld game is probably pokemon: soul silver

    Handheld and phone together?

    A phone game is gonna win cos everyone has one...

    I vote for Dragon Quest IX, I just couldn't play anything else for a month solid!

    Was miles edgeworth released this year?
    because definently that, or rune factory 3, which i believe no one knows about, which i am going to write a review on!

    Great to see the love for Game Dev Story.

    I'll throw in Espgaluda2 for the iPhone as well.

    You other guys have covered the DS/PSP well enough.

    Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3 Portable, handsdown winner. I played loads of games this past year and this even pipped Dragon Quest ix as far as Im concerned. Its the best, and Im a DS fanboy.
