GDC Awards

little big planetThe big winners at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards were Little Big Planet (Best Game Design, Best Technology, Best Debut Game, Innovation Award) and Fallout 3 (Game of the Year, Best Writing). Both deserving winners, especially Little Big Planet which has probably been my most played PS3 title so far apart from Pro Evo. World of Goo also picked up Best Downloadable Game.

The lifetime achievement award went to Hideo Kojima. Kojima is the man behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise and he pretty much created the stealth game genre. He gave a talk at the conference about how nothing is really impossible, you can always work around it if you ditch preconceptions. The things that are currently impossible will soon become possible as technology improves. He has worked at Konami since 1986 and certainly deserves the award.
