Best Graphic Adventure: Handheld - Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
Most gamers wouldn't figure that a game with more dialogue than gameplay would win any sort of award. Even Xenosaga, the game known for its massive amount of cutscenes, has its gameplay far outweigh the actual time spent with the story. Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors has none of that, with its visual novel stylings - with dialogue on the top screen and a narrator on the bottom screen - takes up the great majority of the game. Yes, there are "escape" oriented adventure segments, but most of the game is story. A doozy of a story it is, too, with six separate endings, each with more information than the last. With its gripping tale, fun puzzles, and overall fantastic localization and ambience, there really was no competition for 999 - it's easily the best adventure game this year.
