Happy to see Forza 3 won as it’s great to see Turn 10 bring innovation to the gerne and help expand it to new players as well.

Fifa 10 beating out Madden was kinda surprising and it seems like FiFa 10 actually sold pretty well in the US.

UNCHARTED!!! TWO`11111!!1!111111!!!

Scribblenauts winning is a crime, 5th Cell rode a hype train all the way to the bank… they are the real thieves at this awards show. >_>

Who’s AIAS and why should I care?

It’s the Annual Interactive Achievement Awards which consits of votes from the developer community. It happens at the end of the DICE Summit every year. It’s a good representation of what games developers, the most critical part of the games process, think deserve to be awarded in excellence.

I was gonna ad that to the OP but I assumed most people knew this…

Well I knew what DICE was but I assumed that’s what they called their awards. You know, logic and whatnot…

Yep. I watched every bit of the 2 and half hours.

Still say this year was kinda crummy for gaming.
