Halo, Link (The Legend of Zelda), Mario, and Sonic The Hedgehog received top votes for favorite Game/Character.
Walk of Game quickly captured the attention of the international gaming community, and garnered over 200,000 votes during the four-week voting period of October 1-31, 2004. Gamers worldwide cast their votes through paper ballots and online submissions at www.WalkOfGame.com for the top two Lifetime Achievers and top four Games/Characters. Blast Promotions, Inc., the worldwide leader in online contest validations, powered the Walk of Game voting interface and tallied results for all the nominees.
Winners will be honored with a permanent 24"x24", customized, brushed-steel star installed on the floors of Metreon, a 350,000 square foot mecca for gamers in downtown San Francisco. Official groundbreaking and ceremony is currently set for early 2005. From this year forward, Walk of Game will expand its list of honorees by annually opening voting to the gaming community for an entirely new set of nominations. The second list will be announced in September 2005.
Final results of Walk of Game voting and other media assets for 2004 can be found at www.WalkOfGame.com.
