The first category is "Best of Year", which includes "Game of the Year" awards for the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Scandinavia that are voted for by readers or the editorial teams of a media outlet from that country. The award for "Game of the Year UK" went to Pro Evolution Soccer 2 by Konami.

There are also "Best of Show" awards voted for by a press panel on the first day of ECTS. From this section Nintendo was presented with "Best Handheld Game of the Show" for Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising.
