Japan’s leading videogame magazine, target="blank" title="Famitsu">Famitsu, finally announced the winners of its 2008 awards, and in a display of differences between Japanese and American videogame tastes, Capcom’s Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G took home the Game of the Year prize, with publisher Capcom being named Company of the Year.

Nintendo also fared well, with Wii Music, Mario Kart, and Super Smash Bros Brawl all winning awards.

1UP.com translated the entire list of winners, chosen via popular vote by Famitsu’s readers:

The Monster Hunter series is extremely popular in Japan due to its networking capabilities and communal experience. Thus far, American Monster Hunter releases have received lukewarm reception and mediocre reviews.

Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, and LittleBigPlanet were some the big winners in America’s multiple videogame awards.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
