The official ECTS awards were a bit of a farce this year as the journalists who voted for them descended into a crack addled coma.
Game Of The Show went to a Playstation football game, PC Game Of The Show went to Grand Prix 3 (which looked good, but not that good), and Rainbow Six : Rogue Spear won the Multiplayer Game award, somehow beating off more promising titles like Team Fortress II and Command & Conquer : Renegade.
So to set the record straight, I've picked my own favourites for the Unofficial EuroGamer ECTS '99 Awards, with Best Hardware, Best Action Game, Best Strategy Game and Best Publisher categories.
Don't agree with my choices? Let me know!
