While most websites and organizations have already handed out their 2006 awards, arguably the most respected awards have yet to be decided. Early next month, the Game Developer's Choice Awards will be distributed in a ceremony at GDC. Today, the nominees for last year's best of the best have been announced. The best game category is another shootout between Gears of War, Twilight Princess, and Oblivion, with Clover Studios' Okami joining the other three in the fight for the ultimate award. Each of these games did very well otherwise; Oblivion netted four nominees, Okami and Gears three each, and Zelda following up with a respectable two.
