Destructoid would like to congratulate Super Meat Boy as our official PAX 10 Game Of The Show, an honor only second to waking up alone at Sizzler during the lunch buffet. I had a chance to check the game out personally on a pair of headsets and the meaty sound effects alone are worth the ticket of admission. Congratulations to Team Meat! Some of our community members also named it their game of the show: check our Ryan's impressions.
We'd also like to recognize our nominees: our editors are some of the toughest to please in the industry, so if even a few of them can agree on a title's worth, it must be damn good. Here's our PAX Best of Show winners in no particular order:
Congratulations, everyone! As Jordan eloquently put it, PAX 10 was a big win for the small guys. It was no surprise to me when so many of our editor's votes came back with a few titles that rarely see the spotlight. The next Destructoid awards will be handed out soon as we gear up for the Tokyo Game Show, followed by our Game of the Year during the holidays while you're drunk with grandmother. I'm debating hosting that one at a boxing ring.
What was your game of the show?
