Uncharted 2 Wins Just About Everything At The 13th AIAS Awards

The last of the backs have been patted and the last of the glasses "chinged" over at the 13th annual Interactive Achievement Awards, otherwise known as the "serious awards" for the video game industry.

As you're about to see, next year will be known as the 2nd annual Uncharted 2 awards. Other games to do well on the night include Scribblenauts, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Brutal Legend, while surprises include Modern Warfare 2 "only" picking up two awards, a general snub for Nintendo products and Assassin's Creed II - which had the misfortune of going up against Uncharted in around half of those categories - won nothing.
