A year in prizes around the world: Some odd ones, some expected ones, some unknowns and some blasts from the past.


The list includes categories "Game of The Year"; "Adult/Expert Game of the Year", "Family Game of the Year" and the likes, it considers awards given in 2008 even if the awards would by name be 2007/2009 (or the latest edition of awards).
