San Andreas Nominated for Game Developers Choice Awards

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:40 PM MDT | By Neil
The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has today announced the nominees for its 5th annual Game Developers Choice Awards, with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas reckognised in 4 categories. Best Game, Best Audio, Best Game Design and Best Writing are all categories for which San Andreas was nominated, alongside other instant hits such as Half-Life 2 and Halo 2.
These awards differ in that it is developers rating other studios' work, and each award is greatly honoured for this reason.
"Thousands of developers voiced their picks during the Choice Awards' open
nominations process. The high prestige of these honors comes from the fact that fellow developers recognize each other's best work."
-- Jason Della Rocca, Executive Director, IGDA

The winners of the awards will be announced on March 9th at a special ceremony during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

YES!!! Katamari Damacy is up there to!!!! It won't win best game, but that just goes to show you that graphics and all the fancy shit don't matter in terms of the overall game.

I'm so stoked about that.

w00t. But I'm positive it wont get best game, unless its only PS2. GTAs great and all but Half-Life 2 has got that spot owned.

It is bloody insane man. It's really addictive too. The simplistic controls make it ridiculously fun. I just want it to win just one....just one category. It would be a huge statement to the rest of the video game world that massive levels and amazing graphics aren't the most important thing.

i hope it wins cause that game is fantastic i took sometime off (cause i'm busy making mods for the june pc relaease.) and when i got back into the game it was even more fun then we i first started palying it. i'm deep into las ventruas and i'm working my way to finsihing the game and loving almost every moment of it (game can get a bit cheap wit the enemy a.i. but still a solid game.)

also i want it to win cause halo 2 is nominated.....the game is more flawed then san andreas and yet it gets more awards.
but my friend and i found out why 2 reasons 1. multiplayer...what people talk about more then the single player and 2. cause it's halo 2...no ryhme no reason needed it's halo 2.

for any wondering how i came to this conclusion ask youself this ...looking back at the reviews of any other game with as many obvious flaws as halo 2 and the rush job cut ending, why were these games panned and killed the series yet this game is awarded and is getting a sequel sometime in the distant future? so the treory is sound "because it's halo 2. "

i jsut for once want halo 2 to loose so badly and gta is the game to do it there is so much more i loved and did with easy in gta that was so badly fouled up in halo 2 (yes i did play halo 2 myself so i knwo what i am talking about.) so go gta:san andreas go.

Halo 2 is less flawed that GTA, and the endings a cliffhanger.
