The selection process for the first annual Game Developers Choice Online Awards has begun, and a number of games have already been identified as standing out from all the others. Indeed, the complete list of nominees was released yesterday.
In the “Best Live Game (ongoing)” category, some well-established names surfaced, with Dungeon Fighter Online, EVE Online, FarmVille, League of Legends, and World of Warcraft coming out on top.
The “Best New Online Game (new)” category necessarily brought more less-known titles into the mix, with Dungeon Fighter Online, FIFA Superstars, League of Legends, Nightclub City, and We Rule filling out the list.
Other categories then included “Best Online Game Design (new),” “Best Online Visual Arts (new),” “Best Online Audio (new),” “Best Online Technical (new),” “Best Social Network Game (new),” and “Community Relations (ongoing).”
We’ll let you just view the nominees for yourself here if you’re interested in every last detail.
These lists should definitely give developers a good idea of what the community values in a game, though, and so should prove valuable even to developers who didn’t quite make the cut.
