Bomberman Ultra shouldn't have won any award. Waited ages for it and it just felt like a lazy port. DS and Wii versions feel more polished. Oh and I like competitive gaming, so I find it just a little annoying when I get a game to play online on leaderboards only to find my region uses the same leaderboards as those of regions that have had the game a year already, and the boards only list up to 1000 people. Classic games needs more attention and respect than this.
