Of all the video game events that happen every year, the Game Developers Choice Awards might be the ones that resonate most with game-makers. That's because they're determined by the masses of folks who make video games vote to nominate the best examples of the form from the preceding months.
BioWare's Mass Effect 2 is nominated for five of ten awards at the 11th annual Game Developers Choice Awards. Rockstar's western epic Red Dead Redemption is up for six. Playdead's downloadable Xbox Live Arcade game Limbo has them both beat.
