Obviously last night was a great evening for everyone in the building at the Games Media Awards 2012. But it was an exciting time on the internet, too.
Thanks to the widespread support of the UK games industry, #GMA12 was trending throughout the night in the UK. Even better news is the fact that we all did ourselves a huge credit by presenting a friendly and welcoming games industry to all onlookers.
Here’s a selection from of tweets both from the night and from the aftermath. Well done you lot:
An inspiring night at the GMA. Real passion and support in the room. Well done, all the winners. x #gma12— Russell Kane (@russell_kane) October 18, 2012
