The nominees for Best Driving Game of 2010 are...


And the winner is...


Most of our 2010 Game Awards were the result of seemingly endless arguments, in which the staff finally coalesced out of sheer necessity. Not so with this award. In a unanimous internal vote, Gran Turismo 5 took pole position as the Best Driving Game of 2010. Polyphony Digital's latest driving simulator is absolutely massive in scope, with more than 70 tracks and 1000 cars — yes, that's right, one zero zero zero — in total. The driving physics are absolutely spot-on — drive your own car with a quality racing wheel and you'll truly appreciate Polyphony's addiction to perfection. Visually stunning, technically proficient, and packed to the absolute brim with content, Gran Turismo 5 is the best driving sim we've ever played.

And the Community Award goes to...


Gran Turismo 5 raced its way to the top of the community vote for Best Driving Game of 2010, accumulating a stunning 70.7% of overall votes in the category. Criterion Games' superb arcade racer Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit screeched into the number #2 spot with 19.2%, leaving F1 2010, Split/Second, and ModNation Racers to squabble over the final 10%. If you're curious, ModNation made the podium with 6.1%, while F1 2010 and Split/Second each snagged 2.0% of the votes.
