Activision Takes Home Awards
They're no denying that last year, Activision suddenly became the *it* publisher to talk about. Seemingly casting a bit of a shadow over EA, with games like Call of Duty, Tony Hawk's Project 8, and the all-out amazing Guitar Hero II. Well, Activision's achievements haven't gone unnoticed by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. The AIAS has granted Activision various awards at their 10th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards ceremony in Las Vegas last night.
The aforementioned three titles all took home awards. Guitar Hero II took the important Family Game of the Year award and Outstanding Achievement in Soundtrack. Call of Duty 3 picked up Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design, and Tony Hawk picked up Sports Game of the Year.
“We’re thrilled that Guitar Hero II, Call of Duty 3 and Tony Hawk’s Project 8 have been recognized by the Academy as three of the best games of 2006,” said Robin Kaminsky, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing. “The development teams are all dedicated to delivering top quality gaming experiences and these awards are a testament to their talent and hard work.”
Our kudos go out to Activision for a good effort in 2006.
