The 2006 Game Developers conference has been going on all week and one of today's events was the presentation of the Game Developers Choice Awards, quite possibly the only videogame-related awards worth listening to.
The winners? Four games ended up taking everything: Shadow of the Colossus, Psychonauts, Guitar Hero and Nintendogs. I don't think I could have come up with a better list.
Shadow of the Colossus came up with top honors, with the Best Game award, plus the awards for Game Design, Character Design, Visual Arts, and Innovation. The other three took two awards each, Psychonauts [and Double Fine] with the Writing and New Studio awards, Nintendogs with Technology and Innovation, and Guitar Hero with Audio and Innovation. They apparently hand out Innovation awards like candy at the GDC Awards, as they gave out three this year. Not to say they weren't all deserving.
More GDC news later today, with a wrap-up of both the Sony and Nintendo Keynotes.
