While Uncharted 2: Among Thieves got the top nod from Spike's annual Video Game Awards, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 managed to sweep a different video game ceremony just one day ahead of the VGAs.
The First Annual Inside Gaming Awards was held December 11 in Los Angeles to "specifically appeal to the vast community of global gamers and was established to provide an alternative look at the recent year in gaming."
This means that Modern Warfare 2 got the Game of the Year slot instead of Uncharted 2, and in total developer Infinity Ward walked away with six statuettes.
Here's a list of the IG winners (not to be confused with IGA — the Indie Game Awards held at the Game Developers Conference). For fun, compare the alternative winners circle to the VGA winners. Notice anything?
