The crème de la crème of Tegra games has risen to the top, thanks to our fans.

Three weeks after we asked Tegra fans to vote for their favorite TegraZone games in three categories — Best Graphics, Best Gameplay and Best Overall — the results are in. The lucky winners will get the new ASUS Transformer Pad (along with the keyboard dock) and an Ultimate Game Pack that includes a limited-edition NVIDIA-green Jambox Bluetooth speaker and a Logitech wireless controller.

It was natural enough for us to run this contest. NVIDIA works with developers to take full advantage of Tegra processors and deliver an unparalleled gaming experience for your Tegra devices. The results are mind-blowing games with console-quality experiences on your mobile devices – all served up on TegraZone.com or the TegraZone app.

In all, thousands of TegraZone fans voted each week. Let’s take a look at the winning games in each category:

Best Graphics

Shadowgun THD won by a landslide for its class-defining graphics. There’s no doubt that Shadowgun THD showcases 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’s GTA 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.

We’re proud of working with so many amazing developers who want to take mobile gaming to the next level. Thanks to all our fans for voting!
