The lights are on
Tim Schafer delightfully hosted this year's Game Developers Choice Awards with his trademark humor intact. No topic was off limits. Sorry SimCity, you're still in the hot seat. But the real thrill was seeing who won this year. Journey swept the show, garnering more awards than any other nominee. One thing is clear: the games we play are evolving more and more into emotional experiences, and it's great to see that awarded.

Journey is so fantastic, it deserves every reward it got. Glad to see Subset getting Best Debut, FTL is a lot of fun.
That is awesome that Journey won most of the awards. It is interesting to see that only two awards were given to AAA games. I also agree 100% with the Best Narrative Award for The Walking Dead
Playing this was like playing a work of art. It was very different. So much so that anyone that I know who wanted to play it I asked them to do one thing before they set down with it for the first time. The one thing is simply this: Go into the game with no expectations. It follows no certain path any other game you have played before it. Not much of a story, explanation of whats going on and why your doing the things you are, where's all the enemies to shoot? lol, ect. you get my point. Empty your mind and just play. Then you will see exactly why this game has such a buzz. Game of the year? I'm not even sure about that. A game worth every ounce of my gaming time and a memory that will last a life time, true to that. Yes. Thanks to all who took the time to create such a art piece that is this game.
Journey deserves it. It's one of the best games I have ever played.
Journey deserves it. Love this game. It's a totally different and unique experience.
great job to journey n its dev. honestly while i liked the game i found it to be pretty overhyped
it's so nice to see this game get the recognition it deserves
Journey deserves all those awards.
Journey reminds me of that one guy in school who got tons of praise for making the game winning touchdown. I luv Journey alot but SHEESH. Can we give some other games love?
Dishonored won an award, I'm glad the game deserves it, my personal GOTY. Sure the story has flaws, and a few bugs, but it felt so much like Thief I played it until platinum.
