On Feb, 8th, the blockbuster action-shooter Gears of War walked away with 8 statues, including Game of the Year, at the 10th annual Interactive Achievement Awards hosted every year by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS). This peer-based awards show, the gaming equivalent of the Academy Awards, continues to have a great impact on the future of video game companies. Other notable winners are Wii Sports, walking away with three statutes, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion walking away with two.
"Last night, we recognized the brightest and most innovative in video games in what can be considered one of the best years the video game industry has seen," said Joseph Olin, the President of AIAS. Well said Joseph…well said.
