The SuperPhillip Central Best of 2011 Awards - Aftermath

The curtains have shut, the awards have been handed out, and the tuxedo is going back to the rental shop with the dry cleaning slip. All-in-all, it was a terrific awards ceremony-- possibly my favorite yet. With this the final blog entry of 2011, I would like to recap the awards, showing what won what, count which games won the most awards, and showcase games that were left out of the ceremony because I didn't get the opportunity to play them.
