It seems like everyone else has already done year-end video game awards for 2009, but you know how Canada always like to be last at everything. Our neighbors to the north just held their first annual national video game awards last night, May 5th, an event that celebrated games developed in Canada. BioWare walked away the big winners with a game of the year award for Dragon Age: Origins.

If you’re interested in watching it, G4 Canada will air a 30-minute special about the Canadian Videogame Awards on May 16. The list looks fine, except for one thing: how did Prototype end up on there?
