Uncharted 2 Dominates Yet Another Awards Ceremony
After sweeping away the competition at the AIAS event just last month, we figured Uncharted 2: Among Thieves just had to be finished winning awards. But we forgot all about the Game Developers Choice awards.
Well, left in the hands of designers, maybe the "choices" would fall differently. Maybe Naughty Dog's awesome game doesn't resonate as strongly with other developers. ...nah. Going in with seven nominations, Uncharted 2 took home five total awards, including the coveted Game of the Year Award, which means the game now has a total of about 6,429 awards. Or something like that. It also won Best Writing, Best Technology, Best Visual Arts, and Best Audio. After 10 wins in similar categories at the AIAS awards, it has become abundantly clear to everyone that Uncharted 2 was, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the top dog in 2009. Other winners included the great Batman: Arkham Asylum, which snagged Best Game Design, and Flower, which won the Best Downloadable Game category. You can view the rest of the details over at GameSpot; they'll soon have the full event on video if you wish to watch it. But at this point, how many times can we watch Uncharted 2 dominate the competition? Doesn't it get boring after a while?
Okay, it really doesn't. The game was so good, it deserves every last accolade it receives. We still think Assassin's Creed II should've gotten a bit more love at some of these awards shows in 2010, but that's okay. We know that one rules, too.
