In a <a href="">press release</a>, <b>Midway</b> announced that several of their games featured at this year's <b>E3</b> have been nominated for several critics awards. <a href="">Mortal Kombat: Armageddon</a> was nominated 4 times in the category for <b>Best Fighting Game</b> at <a href=""></a>, <a href="">GameSpot</a>, <a href="">GameTrailers</a> and <a href="">IGN</a>. Unfortunately, <b>Armageddon</b> didn't take home any awards this year, losing out to <b>Street Fighter Alpha Anthology</b>, <b>Tekken: Dark Resurrection</b> and <b>Virtua Fighter 5</b>.

<a href="">Mortal Kombat: Armageddon</a> still has a chance at winning an award when the <a href="">Game Critics Awards</a>, a panel of prestigious videogame journalists, announce their selections on <b>May 31st</b>.
I agree. I can see with the Tekken because that's just popular. But Virtua Fighter and Street Fighter? I think not.
Most of the time, popularity isn't a measure of the quality of a game. MKA will most certainly sell the most out of the picked titles, but it's not going to be the best fighter. DA and MKD were fun on their own, and MKA will likely be the same with some additions.

I can see a point in objecting Anthology's pick (but I personally agree knowing the content of the package, and Alpha 3 still rocks after 7 years).I'd pick VF hands down. Love it or hate it, the VF series has been the only one that's been consistently polished to perfection, and I don't mean visuals. Though it's sold the least in North America unsurprisingly.
