Geocities ran a competition in February 1997 (back in the old days when the Mimir was a fledgling Geocities site) to determine the best site in each category it offers; Game Site was one of them. It's a competition based on the number of votes each site can earn from visiting voters, and I was delighted to get into the second round (thank you very much to everyone who voted for me) -- and be in the top five game sites on Geocities.
My first ever award. Ahhhh ;-)
