These Summer Award winners join the others from the year for our Family Game of the Year Award voted for by readers.


Notes about the Family Gamer Awards

Four times a year, Spring (May), Summer (August), Autumn (November) and Winter (February) we pick the best crop of the season's games. Then once a year our readers vote on these games to decide which is the overall winner for the year in each age category. Winners of the award can display the FGA Award logo on their materials.

"We really like what has been done with these Age Specific Game awards the last couple of years, and are excited to be able to both Sponsor and extend the reach of the awards. After all, what better way to tell families about the best games for their different age groups?"

Arrange for games to be submitted for nomination by contacting our Awards secretary via making the mail FAO FGA Awards.


Notes about the Association of Family Gamers

The Association of Family Gamers aims to provide support and information to families that are looking to play video games together in healthy, entertaining, imaginative and stimulating ways. It does this through its website by providing Reviews, Guides, Editorials and Recommendation Lists for all new games. It also provides a printed Family Gamer magazine for its members that contain the season's gaming highlights.

The association consists of local grass roots families with an interest in video games. Grandparents, Parents, Teenagers, Juniors and Infants all bring their own angle on video games. Local meet-ups and play-sessions are complimented by the website and magazine where members both share and discuss their experiences without jargon or assumed prior knowledge.
