GMA nominees announced, VG247 up for two

Thursday, 14th August 2008 12:54 GMT By Patrick Garratt

We fucking rule. We’ve been nominated for two Game Media Awards, as you can see on MCV. We’re up for Specialist Games Writer and Games Website, which is pleasant.

The awards show itself takes place on October 16 at Jongleurs Comedy Club in Camden. The double acceptance speech has been ready for months, obviously.

    Well done you! And him. And that other one.

    Is there a “commenter of the year” award? Or perhaps a “miserable bastard of the year” gong?

    Once again Stevas gets overlooked though.

    Nicely done. Practice your “I don’t hate you” look for when someone else wins. :D

    … btw: how big is the VG247 team?

    *double beam* :D:D

    Quiiick – It’s massive. It’s me, half a Mike, a bit of Nathan and tiny bits of a few others.

    PT – I can smile falsely through any occasion. And yeah, looking at those lists I think winning either of them is something of a long-shot, tbh ;)

    Nice to be nominated though, innit.

    Nominations are the cool part. If you lose you can just say that you didn’t have enough money to by the votes. ;)

    Congratulations if any site deserves to win it’s this one.
    Every time I visit it is updated.
    You must leave a picture of yourself on the sitting room table so the missus knows who you are.

    Congrats. When does the campaign to sabotage the other nominations begin?

    I’m gonna do a Jarvis Cocker.

    You rock!

    Edit: Blerk just got nominated for best videogame site comment!

    With you on the list Pat, I’m actually giving the GMAs some credibility now. My ideal ceremony would be one where RamRaider gets publicly outed and you and him have a fight. Which you win, naturally.

    you could do a michael jackson and accept your award with a black face.
    of course you might look a little silly if you didn’t actually win so it might pertinent to break out the coal dust.

    Blerk for commenter of the year! And you better bloody remember to thank your loyal band of fans, Garratt.

    If we win anything I’ll get someone to record my thank you “speech” and post it. I’ll thank everyone. In the world. Ever.
