Video Game Awards 2014: The Winners

Last night the Video Game Awards took place in Las Vegas. The show lasted 3 hours and was a pretty decent mixing awards with performances related to video games and world premier trailers of already known about titles set to launch in 2015 and debuting brand new games.

Some of the awards however weren’t presented on the show, and I only found out the winners by searching for a complete winner list. It also seemed odd that some of the bigger awards such as developer of the year didn’t get a montage video or stage time yet other smaller catagories did.

There was a rather touching tribute to Ken & Roberta Williams who created Sierra game stuidos all those years back. In fact they were very humble to recieve such an honour.

Here’s the full list of winners:

And that’s the awards winners. 3 hours was a bit much considering alot of the above wasn’t handed out at the show. But still not a bad debut awards show.

Special moments being the Industry Icon Award and the Indie game of the year. The recipients looked overwhelmed and humble. Great to see.
