The National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers Corp. (aka NAViGaTR) revealed on the 3rd November the results of its first Best of the Decade award, an award celebrating the video games of 2001-2009. After a long series of elimination rounds and nominations, the final awards were determined by a combination of superdelagates and public vote. Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee, released in 2001, made it to the final nomination for the Character Design of the Decade award, but ultimately lost to Shadow of the Colossus (which won the title with 70% of the superdelagate vote). This is not the first time Colossus has beaten out an Oddworld title for a NAViGaTR award: the 5th annual awards (held in 2005) had Team ICO best Stranger’s Wrath, once again for the Character Design award.
