ELSPA has honoured a number of top-selling games with its Gold and Silver ELSPA Awards. During weeks 9-13 of calendar year 2002 (that's March, basically), long-awaited PlayStation 2 release Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, along with FIFA 2002 on the same console and Mario Kart: Super Circuit on the GameBoy Advance, all topped 200,000 sales in Europe and receive Gold Awards. The Silver Awards go to titles which top 100,000 sales but fall short of the Gold Award. Winners in this category include the frankly awful PSone title Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes, and the very nearly awful PlayStation 2 game Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. The third title to take the Silver was Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, and isn't it nice to see a good PC title receiving recognition for once?
