The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

GR's Best of 2005 Awards

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
We are, by nature, complainers. When it comes to disliking things and telling the world, we are determined, fearless and proud. We're more prone to slandering a game than applauding it, mostly due to a combination of our own insecurities and a widespread drinking problem. And by problem, we mean skill.

But we're also big nerds with a passion for geeking out in front of a glowing screen, and despite our general humbuggery, we do like this racket quite a bit. In some cases, we absolutely, positively love it.

And now, we'd like to name those cases and give them shiny trophies.

Welcome to GR's Best Games of 2005.

Ye Olde Rules

Since last year's awards only resulted in a couple MBs worth of hate mail, we made few tweaks to our rewards policy, most of which involved minor changes to bribery limits. Otherwise, we still give out awards as we see fit. Rather than plod through both platform and genre awards, we're sticking with genres. It makes more sense, somehow.

Awards are based on a complex formula involving a tuning fork, a keg of Miller High Life, a mysterious green substance and a dreidel. If no worthy recipients could be identified in a certain category, no awards were given. Editor's Choice awards were given to games that did not win in a particular category, but caught the eye of the GR editorial staff and just had to get something.

From soup to nuts, these games exemplify the upper echelon of video and computer gaming over the past year. Only games released during the 2005 year were eligible. Our hats off to the winners!

Travel through time, McFly, and
