For the brief few months I had a handheld system this year the game I enjoyed the most was Tomodachi Life so I'll nominate it. A Link Between Worlds was pretty amazing as well.

It just came to my attention that A Link Between Worlds won this award last year as it released in November of 2013 so it would be ineligible this year. For those who nominated it (even I gave it a nod as I nominated Tomodachi Life) you might just want to give another game some love. :yeah:

Good grief, it's been a year since A Link Between Worlds? Holy cow.

I suppose I'll nominate Super Smash Brothers 3DS.

Whew! Now this is a much tougher choice. While I only have two games to choose from, both have taken up a great amount of my free time. The two games I've talking about are Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokemon Omega Ruby. I've been waiting for SSB since it was announced and, when I got the game in my hands, it was every bit as awesome as I imagined it. Unexpected new characters (whoever though Duck Hunt would make it?), fun new stages and one of the most addicting single player modes in the series (Smash Run). At the same time, though, Pokemon Omega Ruby has to be one of the best Pokemon remakes I've ever played. The way they retold the Hoenn region story and mixed it with the new features of Pokemon Y was almost perfect. It's almost impossible to decide...

...but I am a much bigger fan of fighting games than I am of...well, actually, I don't even like turn-based RPGs. Pokemon is the exception, but it's not enough to get my vote this year. I'm going with Super Smash Bros. for 3DS!
