GamerNode — The 2013 Nodie Awards

“For 2013, we’ve scaled back the extravagance of last year’s record-breaking 44 awards categories, and have moved away from the awards-show style presentation, where we list nominees and then reveal a winner. This year, we’re highlighting our top choices in each of 24 categories, many of which combine previous award categories into larger, more encompassing ones, with a focus on the big picture for each of the games considered.”
