And The Winners Are…

Readers Choice AwardsThank you to everyone who took the time to nominate and vote in our first annual Village Gamer Readers’ Choice Canadian Video Game Awards. The running in many categories was very tight, often with only a vote or two separating the top three choices. We saw some great titles, studios and characters nominated, and we’re already looking forward to next year when we can do it all again. We extend our congratulations to all of the nominees and winners.
