At the beginning of May, NVIDIA opened voting for a new round of awards that would highlight some of the best TegraZone games. The TegraZone Player’s Choice Awards were decided by you, the fans, whose votes went toward entries to win one of seven ASUS Transformer Pad prize packs.

That pack includes an ASUS Transformer Pad 300, a compatible keyboard dock, a special edition NVIDIA JAMBOX, and a Logitech wireless gaming controller. Three different categories were voted on: best graphics, best gameplay, and best overall. Who came away with the wins? Read on to find out!

Best Graphics

Shadowgun THD won by a landslide for its class-defining graphics. There’s no doubt that Shadowgun THDshowcases the upper limit of what’s possible when you take advantage of Tegra 3, the world’s only 4-PLUS-1 quad-core mobile processor. Shadowgun THD offers tons of exclusive content you won’t find on any other platform: water fluid effects, damage and aging effects, and even particle effects, just to name a few.

Best Gameplay

This category saw some heated back-and-forth between GTA II and Shadowgun THD. Ultimately, GTA III, from Rockstar, came out ahead. Thanks to full-on game controller support on Tegra devices, Rockstar’s hit title was voted tops in Best Gameplay.

Best Overall

This battle was a nail-biter. GTA III and Shadowgun THD duked it out to win the Best Overall crown, but Rockstar’sGTA III squeaked past Madfinger’s third-person shooter to be voted as the Best Overall game in TegraZone. With full 3D stereo (on Tegra devices that support 3D) and game controller support, GTA III is as visually stunning (with HD-quality resolution, updated graphics, character, and vehicle models) as it is fun to play.

Congratulations to both Madfinger Games and Rockstar, who have both pushed the bar of expectations of gaming on Android! Another big thanks to the thousands who voted for these games in their respective categories. Be sure to check out what I’m sure will be five new TegraZone hits that were announced at E3 2012 here.
