The VG247 Community and Game Awards 2009 – the results

Monday, 14 December 2009 09:56 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Now we’re on the verge of wrapping up 2009, it’s time to reflect on what’s been and gone this year. The good times. The bad times. The community. The tears. The pain. The typing in pants at 4.00am. The megatons. The games. The companies. The faces. The CMS telling people to stop posting so quickly. The glory times.

For VG247, 2009 has been exceptional, mainly for the strength of its ever-growing community. We’re nothing without you, so these awards are our way of saying thank you. We hope you had fun. If you’ve won a prize, mail patrick [at] with your address, and I’ll make sure you get it before Christmas.

To the game-makers and publishers included this year, we want to say a massive congratulations for everything you’ve achieved in the past 12 months. These awards are purely based on reader votes. Your tiny plastic trophy, straight from the heart of the VG247 community, is on its way.

Big up. Here’s to 2010!

Even though BDH attracted the most votes for this by far, the majority abstained, specifically because they felt no one should be banned. I’m not going to ban anyone.
