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.

Now we all know that the only awards in gaming that actually matter, are the ones from Lazygamer. It’s the home of the prestigious Best Racing Game award, which Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 won last year. That being said, we think those kids at the Spike VGX awards are doing pretty swell with their event. Here’s a list of nominations from that upcoming show.

We got back from Gamescom yesterday, our heads all fuzzy from the travel and all that beer. We’ve played and seen a ton of games. We’re still busy trying to decide which ones tickled out fancies most – but the official Gamescom site has already picked its winners. I have to say, some of them make very little sense to me.

We loved The Witcher 3 at E3 2013, so much so that it ended up winning our game of the show. The Witcher guys loved that and placed us on their honour wall in their not-so-brand new trailer that was released to the public  today.
