Uncharted 2 Leads Elite Group Into The 2010 GDCAs
Looks like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is in line for a few more prestigious awards.
After dominating several award shows late last year and walking away with Game of the Year honors from multiple sources (including here at PSXE), Naughty Dog's masterpiece is primed to nab even more hardware at the 10th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards. According to GameSpot, we already know that Valve co-founder Gabe Newell will be receiving the Pioneer Award (for fairly obvious reasons), but the other categories remain up in the air. Uncharted 2 landed the most nominations, including one for Game of the Year, Flower received an impressive five nominations and the excellent Assassin's Creed II got four well-deserved nominations. The other Game of the Year contenders are BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins, Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Asylum, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II and From Software's Demon's Souls.
Wanna check it out? The GDCAs will be held in conjunction with the 2010 Game Developers Conference, which will run between March 9th and 13th in San Francisco. The award ceremony will take place at 6:30 p.m. on March 11 at the Moscone Convention Center. They don't have a host just yet, but Double Fine's Tim Schafer has handled these duties for the past couple of years so maybe he'll return. So what do you think of the nominations? Hard to argue, we think.
