Mario & Link Honored at New York VGAs

It’s no surprise to anyone who played either Super Mario 3D World or The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds that these two games were within the category of “best games of 2013,” regardless of systems. So, it’s a bit affirming and reassuring to see the outside gaming world recognize this too, not just everyone in the little Nintendo bubble.

Yesterday was the 3rd Annual New York Video Game Critics Circle Awards, held at New York University’s Pfizer Auditorium, hosted by Daniel Radosh, an Emmy Award-winning writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Super Mario 3D World was voted by the panel as the Best Kids Game of 2013, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds received Best Handheld Console Game. The panel consisted of some fairly well-known names, including Mike Futter (Game Informer), Harold Goldberg (New York Times, NPR), Chelsea Stark (Mashable), Evan Narcisse (Kotaku), and several others.
