Uncharted 2 Grabs 10 AIAS Awards



Well it looks like the AIAS is reinforcing what the rest of the industry has been saying since its release as Uncharted 2 has walked away with a stellar 10 awards this year. As is the tradition around here, Jay Mohr took the stage to host the 13th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards at DICE 2010. While the results definitely favored Naughty Dog's action/adventure game, other big winners included Batman: Arkham Asylum, Scribblenauts and Modern Warfare 2. For those of you who don't know, the AIAS awards are peer voted, meaning that the developers are picking the winners. Also honored this year were David Crane with the first annual Pioneer Award. Doug Lowenstein with the Lifetime Achievement Award and Mark Cerny was inducted into the Hall of Fame. See the full list of winners below.
