How Were Winners Selected?

For those who are interested, all winners earned this honor based on overall customer purchases. The following factors were used to determine the winners:

  1. First month sales
  2. A game can only win one award (i.e. if a game wins "game of the year", it cannot qualify for "Best Hidden Object Game", etc.)
  3. How games are classified is determined by the site editor. Many games cross several genres and award categories.

The primary factor of the three bullets shown above was the first 30 days sales.
