Aggie Awards

2009 Aggie Awards

It’s that time of year again... 2009 is officially in the books, which can only mean one thing. Okay, it means it’s 2010, but it can mean only one other thing at Adventure Gamers: it’s Aggie Awards time!

Following last year’s successful debut, the Aggies return for a new three-day extravaganza of shiny golden statuettes, overly long speeches (those are by us), and divisive public reactions. Of course, along with our own selections, included in the presentation are the Readers’ Choice awards, so every game had two shots at the coveted hardware.

At the risk of sounding clichéd (heaven forbid that would happen in this genre!), bear in mind that there are no losers here, only winners. Many of the competitions were extremely close, and all nominee finalists are deserving of recognition this week. But not all of them can win, and it’s time now to celebrate the very top games in their respective fields.

Without further ado, then, Adventure Gamers is pleased to present… the 2009 Aggie Awards.
