This Friday, we’re going to be clocking off for a few days to recharge our batteries and prepare ourselves for day one patches. As usual however, we’ll be closing out the year with the only awards that matter, the Lazygamer Game Of The Year awards show. Glitz! Glamour! A terrible budget that means that I’ll have to host from my kitchen! Here’s how we make such an event possible.

Red carpets, paparazzi, screaming fans… wait, this isn’t The Oscars, is it? Nope, it’s better than that actually, accolades you actually care about! Did you watch The Game Awards this year? Of course you didn’t. You probably had no power for days on end (thanks Eskom, YOU DA REAL MVP!). If you’ve missed the results, we have them right here.

Negotiations are currently underway for our in-house voting for awards this year. 2014 wasn't the most impressive year for games, but we did have some gems. We know that you all think we're idiots when we release our awards for the year, so we're letting you be the idiots in your own category this time. I mean, um, we're letting you have a "reader's choice" award.

EA has been doing all kinds of things to make themselves seem more appealing. From giving away free games to releasing a beloved Bioware title, people are finding fewer reasons to hate EA. Now there is another one.

Geoff Keighley has branched out on his own, distancing himself from the atrocity that the VGX has become. His Video Game Awards look pretty cool, and the nominees line up with some of the names we've been throwing around for our awards, too.

There are so many opportunities for games to nab awards. Beyond the typical E3 and Gamescom nominations, plenty of other award ceremonies also honor those games that have done something rather well. Now there will be another one, and it will probably be pretty cool.

Nine million votes, or at least one Reddit thread full of opinions. That’s how many people cast their nominees for the best of the best when it came to the gaming period of 2013-2014. One of the oldest gaming award ceremonies, the Golden Joysticks took place over the weekend with a wide variety of titles getting some love and recognition. Here’s the full list of winners.

Valve kicked off the very first edition of the Saxxy Awards a few years ago. What is it exactly? Well, fans are encouraged to make their very own machinima utilising the Source Filmmaker – the same (and free) tool that Valve use to make animated videos for several of their games. Fans then enter their animation into one of 4 categories; short, action, comedy, drama. Oscars be damned, here are your winners for the Saxxy Awards 2014!

Friday! Weekend! So ends another week at the Lazygamer office. It's tough being an intern. Swimming with sharks, dodging laser beams, diving through flaming hoops, all while keeping coffee cups filled to the brim? Dang, I’m totally submitting an entry to that TV series - I shouldn’t be alive!

A week or so back we told you about the nominees in the Game Critics Awards; the best games from E3 as chosen by North America’s premier video game critics. Today, we tell you who won, and which games have ultimately been selected to partake in the great big annual PR circle jerk. They’re also the game you probably want most over the next year.

I enjoy the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards. They're like the Oscars, but with a stiff upper lip and way more wit (and a better quaffed gold man). Also, they actually honor games in their awards, something the American Academy really should start doing. This year's nominations heavily feature some expected games, including some much loved indies.
