Want to play a part in the outcome of the GMAs? Now’s your chance. Public voting has opened for one of our special awards.
Gamers’ Choice is a chance for a single piece of outstanding games media work – whether that’s a written piece, video or podcast – named as one of the top pieces of games media work from the last year.
There are 12 excellent pieces up for consideration. The full list is below (including links to where you can read the originals) and you can vote for them here via a simple survey.
If you’re nominated, feel free to point your readers towards the long list and the voting survey. Award sponsor Playfire and MCV will be promoting the vote over the next two weeks. Voting closes at midday on October 15th – the day of the awards ceremony itself.
