In the recent past gaming has become a cultural institution on par of that of film and the written word. So it is only fair that such an important facet of our culture be given an award show to honor the people who work so tirelessly to bring such joy into our lives on a daily basis. Bestowing these honors this year is the Game Awards, (which replace last years VGA Awards) a ceremony to be held in Las Vegas at the Axis Theater on the 5th of December. We don’t know much about the Awards, which will air live on PSN, Xbox Live, and other platforms, but you can be sure that we’ll keep you of the loyal readers of APGNation updated as news on the event surfaces in the near future.
Geoff Knightly, the Game Award’s producer, had the following to say about the show: “Starting out on a new path is never easy, but I’m deeply humbled to have the entire game industry rally behind this new celebration. In the coming days and weeks there will be much more to tell you about what’s planned for December 5 at the AXIS Theater in Las Vegas, including information on the awards, the world premieres and much more.”
