Aggie Awards

2010 Aggie Awards

I’s time to put on your finest designer sweats and custom-made slippers (aren’t you glad this isn’t televised?), as we roll out the red carpet once again for the one, the only... Aggie Awards presentation from Adventure Gamers!

In this, our third annual awards ceremony, we recognize the best and brightest adventure offerings from 2010. Sure, the list may not include many “AAA” titles, but everyone likes an underdog. Will Telltale reclaim its top honours for the third year running? Can a strong field of handheld and console games pry the PC’s grip off the golden statuette? Will the strongest indie candidates show up the publishers that backed other titles instead? What is the meaning of life? All these questions (okay, except the last one) will be answered soon.

For double the Aggie pleasure, we have tallied up the votes from our recent Readers’ Choice poll as well, and will be announcing the public winners along with our own. You may just be surprised at how the results played out: sometimes you even agreed with us! But certainly not always, including a difference of opinion on the biggest prize of all.

As always, there are really no losers here, only runners-up. There was plenty of competition for each and every award, including more than a few tiebreaks to settle before reaching a verdict. But like the Highlander, in the end there can be only one to claim the coveted hardware.

Read on, then, and find out which games claimed the Aggie Awards for 2010.
