As reported at gamesindustry.biz this morning, Eidos-Montreal made a haul at the 2012 Canadian Video Game Awards with “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”, including Best Console Game, Best Audio, Best Game Design, Best Writing and Best New Character, although it lost out to “FIFA Soccer 12” from EA for Game of the Year.
The Canadian Video Game Awards recognize Canadian game designers, and there was some serious competition in there this year. Deus Ex beat out “Assassin’s Creed: Revelations” for all of its awards except Best New Character. AC:R won in the Best Visual Arts category. I’m thankful that I didn’t have to do the judging. Both are very strong games, as were many of the other nominees.
Kudos all around to the Eidos-Montreal and Ubisoft teams.
