Vice City Leads G4TV’s Glow Awards

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City led the winners of G4TV’s first annual Glow Awards, presented last night in Hollywood.
Vice City took home awards for Best Soundtrack, Best Live Action Performance (both Male and Female), EB Gamers Choice, and Game of the Year. Other games given a nod in G4’s vast array of 24 categories that recognize achievements in previously under-regarded areas such as “Hottest Character,” “Most Annoying Character,” and “Best Brawl,” included Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers for Best Adaptation, Battlefield 1942 for Best Online Game, and Animal Crossing for Most Innovative Game. Mario, Nintendo’s ubiquitous mascot, received the Jeep Legend Lifetime Achievement Award, acceptance speech and all, while his latest major title, Super Mario Sunshine, received the “Most Underrated Game” Award. The full list of award categories and recipients (including platform and publisher) follows: BEST ADAPTATION The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Multi Electronic Arts BEST BRAWL Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Multi Midway BEST CINEMATIC Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos PC Blizzard Entertainment BEST GRAPHICS Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Multi Ubi Soft Entertainment BEST HANDHELD/MOBILE GAME The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past / Four Swords Game Boy Advance Nintendo BEST LIVE ACTION/VOICE PERFORMANCE - FEMALE Jenna Jameson / Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PlayStation 2 Rockstar Games BEST LIVE ACTION/VOICE PERFORMANCE - MALE Ray Liotta / Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PlayStation 2 Rockstar Games BEST ONLINE GAME Battlefield 1942 PC Electronic Arts BEST REVIVAL The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker GameCube Nintendo BEST ROOKIE GAME Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Multi Ubi Soft Entertainment BEST SOUNDTRACK Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PlayStation 2 Rockstar Games BEST SPORTS GAME Madden NFL 2003 Multi Electronic Arts BEST STORY Kingdom Hearts PlayStation 2 Square Electronic Arts BEST VILLIAN Ganon / The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker GameCube Nintendo BEST WEAPON Light Saber / Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast Multi LucasArts CHARACTER YOU'D MOST LIKE TO BE Dante / Devil May Cry 2 PlayStation 2 Capcom COOLEST CHEAT/EASTER EGG Unlock original game / Panzer Dragoon Orta Xbox Sega EB GAMERS CHOICE AWARD Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PlayStation 2 Rockstar Games GAME OF THE YEAR Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PlayStation 2 Rockstar Games GUILTIEST PLEASURE Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball Xbox Tecmo HOTTEST CHARACTER Tina / Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball Xbox Tecmo MOST ANNOYING CHARACTER Zill, the snot-nosed kid / The Legend of Zelda : The Wind Waker GameCube Nintendo MOST INNOVATIVE GAME Animal Crossing GameCube Nintendo MOST UNDERRATED GAME Super Mario Sunshine GameCube Nintendo
