Frozen Bubble is trouncing the competition in the Puzzle genre, currently winning in every category.

Hedgewars is sweeping the Action and Artillery genre, save for Most Innovative Gameplay, where Liquid Wars is steadily outpacing the others.

Real Time Strategy is a bit of a free for all at the moment. 0AD and Complete Annihilation are currently tied for Best Art, with Glest and Kernel Panic not far behind. Warzone2100 is in the lead in Best Story/World and Best Game of the Genre, but is tied with Kernel Panic for Most Innovative Gameplay.

Armagetron Advanced and Frets on Fire are duking it out in the Arcade genre, with a tight race in all for categories. Armagetron Advanced is currently ahead in Best Art, Story, and Game, while Frets on Fire maintains its hold on Most Innovative Gameplay.

Lastly, the Platformer category is the seat of a brawl between Yo Frankie! and SuperTux. Yo Frankie! is way in the lead for Best Art, but is tied wth SuperTux for Most Innovative Gameplay and Best Game of the Genre. SuperTux is holding fast onto the Best Story/World vote.
