Mario and Sonic--long time foes in the video game world--decided to, in celebration of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, bury the hatchet and appear together in a game called Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Wii and Nintendo DS.
The first game was so successful that when the Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, Canada rolled around in 2010, Mario and Sonic got together again for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, also for the Wii and DS.
And now, with the 2012 London Olympic Summer Games just around the corner, Mario and Sonic will do it one more time - and for the first time ever, they'll be competing on the Nintendo 3DS, too! Soccer, Equestrian, Canoeing, Aquatics, Table Tennis and more add up to almost 50 Olympic-themed events for you to compete in both 2D and 3D.

Whether you’re a big fan of Lightning McQueen and friends or just like racing games this is an amazing game because it is so much more than just a racing game.
Cars 2 is the newest video game installment in the Cars franchise and, obviously, ties in with the movie, Cars 2. The game takes on a whole new approach, breaking away from a strictly kids-oriented game, to creating a toned-down kids version of the popular racing game “Blur.” In all honesty, this probably was a great move, as people of all ages, not just kids anymore, will be interested in the game.

I've got a few awards I'd like to hand out. Without further adieu, here are the Sports Gamer's Awards for E3 2011.
