Two of Naughty Dog’s top people collected five Game Developers Choice Awards last week for Uncharted 2. Short on material for my backstage interviews, I asked them which awards they deserved most and least. They answered and offered Pokemon tips.
Batman: Arkham Asylum art director David Hego did better than I could, talking in a language other than his native one, about Batman winning Best Game Design at the Game Developer’s Choice Awards. Plus, he tolerated my Pokemon tips request.
Beating Zelda and Grand Theft Auto, Jeremiah Slaczka’s 5th Cell won top handheld and innovation honors at the Game Developer’s Choice Awards for Scribblenauts. After winning, he explained why the sequel isn’t “Scribblenauts 2” … and I got Pokemon tips.
