UPDATE: Voting has completed so below are the nominees and winners of the inaugural Game Anim Awards (winners in bold). The nominations were dominated by three AAA releases: God of War taking home 8 awards, Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 awards, & Red Dead Redemption 2 with 2 awards including Best Game Animation of 2018. Notably, the just-released GRIS won both categories it was nominated in, making it the late stand-out indie game of 2018.
ORIGINAL POST: It’s nearing the end of the year so I thought it time to have some fun with the inaugural Video Game Animation Awards 2018, celebrating exceptional video game animation from games released this year, and is open to everyone interested in interactive character animation.
Part 1 will be the nomination phase and will run for one week until Tuesday December 11th, while Part 2 will come towards the end of December and will form multiple-choice questions based on these responses, with the results announced in early 2019.
The categories are based on responses to the tweet above, grouped into similar sections, with a goal of avoiding one or a handful of winners sweeping up everything. Click the button below to access Part 1, the Nomination process.
