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.

And not just the band either. With the Dice summit underway in fabulous Las Vegas, we’ve seen a few exciting conferences from industry professionals, floating around new ideas, games and Hollywood partnerships. Screw all that though, because the event is better known for its awards that reward the best of the best in the industry. Except this year, some of the choices in various fields are just downright baffling.

And with another year of gaming over and done with, we’ve celebrated the best of the best, in that digital domain. If you missed out on any of those awards though, or just feel like posting more comments about how Call of Duty Black Ops 2 should have won Best Game not about shooting people in the face, then here’s a list of all the posts which featured a shiny awards banner.

So here we are, this is the end, my beautiful friends…Ignoring that bit of reference from The Doors, this is the final award that we have to give out this year. It’s for the game that blew us away, that stole hours upon hours from our life, and gave back phenomenal gameplay and fun in return. And the Lazygamer game of the year 2012 award goes to…
