In an age where even the most humble product or business has to be award-winning, the gaming industry is no exception. In future posts I will present some of the awards given out every year, sometimes to the usual suspects, sometimes not. As it happens with any award, the public (game players in this case) does not always agree with the juries. The aim of the posts will be to describe how the awarding process works and what kinds of games (and game players) the awards are aimed at. To keep current about which games are actually awarded, I recommend the blog listed on the sidebar.
