Don’t Like The Winners From The 2012 VGAs? Get A Second Opinion From Machinima’s IGAs.

Don’t Like The Winners From The 2012 VGAs? Get A Second Opinion From Machinima’s IGAs.

The gang from 343 Industries, BioWare and Telltale Games stuck around in Los Angeles a second night to take home more honours, as Machinima’s fourth Inside Gaming Awards handed out its hardware on Saturday, a day after the Video Game Awards.

Halo 4 was a more traditional game-of-the-year pick, though The Walking Dead did cop Best Downloadable and Best Character Design. Hotline Miami was honored as the Most Original Game, some well deserved recognition for that game.

All of the winners are below.

  • One day I hope there is an article going “Don’t Like The Winners From The 2012 VGAs? That’s okay because no one actually cares about the awards part of the VGAs.”

    • you have a point, the previews they show are great, and the stuff they do, also GOTY means they can charge us again for the same game with all the dlc we just brought for a slightly cheaper price

  • I cannot believe anything outscored Journey for best original score! That’s the only one I seriously disagree with. The others are more or less a matter of personal taste I think.

  • The only game i would put in there is jurney… I know, i know, but seriously, its one of the most emotional games ive ever played, it shairs so much with you even though there is no dialoug, and the multiplayer is seriously the best multiplayer ive ever played cos its that origional and bonding.
