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.

I'm glad it's getting all the credit it deserves. It truly is an amazing, beautiful game.
I am sad that virtue's last reward didn't win best narrative :(
Journey was such a wonderful game.
Impressive results. Some good games on this list too.
Wow, Journey had one hell of a year.
