Hey everybody! We're going to have a two-part awards special on our fledgling Internet television show. We put together the nominees pretty quickly, and have encouraged the Destructoid staff (our voting pool) to use write-ins as often as often as they like. Just because you don't see a game listed here doesn't mean it might not win as a write in.

So please, check out our categories and nominees below. I can't wait to hear what you think of them. There is also a reader's choice nominee for you to get on.
