    Uncharted 2 Takes Game of the Year at VGAs, Evan Wells Chats

    Sponsored Links
    Today Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has shared his experience from this year's VGAs, where Uncharted 2 for PS3 won Game of the Year, as follows:

    So the [Register or Login to view links] Video Game Awards were this Saturday, and in case you hadn't heard, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves walked away with [Register or Login to view links]!

    It's a huge honor and the team is still basking in the glow of that moment. While it's still fresh in my mind, I wanted to share a little behind the scenes recap of how it all went down.

    I arrived at the show with Christophe, Amy and Bruce and we walked the red carpet, which was a pretty cool way to start the evening off. There were tons of media lined up with cameras and microphones ready for interviews. We stopped for a few interviews and Christophe even played a game of Wii Resort Table Tennis against one of our interviewers (he let her win... so he says).

    Continuing down the carpet, we ran into a bunch of people arriving at the same time as us like Marty O'Donnell from [Register or Login to view links] (who walked away with the award for Best Score for Halo: ODST... congrats!), our friends from [Register or Login to view links] (Modern Warfare 2 won [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links]!) and Stig Asmussen (God of War III won [Register or Login to view links]!). It's humbling to be around the people who make your favorite games.

    Once we found our seats (VIP...thanks, [Register or Login to view links]) we sat around and waited nervously for the show to start. I had to control my inner fanboy as Mark Hamill, Samuel Jackson and Alyssa Milano sat down in front of us. The setup was amazing! The back of the stage was a huge video screen that actually wrapped around the sides to create a really cool 3D effect. [Register or Login to view links] really stepped it up this year and pulled out all the stops.

    As the show began, it was awesome to hear Claudia Black's voice as the MC for the evening. She had only found out the night before that they wanted her for the job and she jumped right in and nailed it. A consummate professional, as always.

    Unfortunately we soon found out that both she and Nolan North lost out to Jack Black for Best Voice which was the start of our losing streak, and had us worried we might walk away empty-handed. The competition was tough this year...in each of the 8 categories we were nominated in, we were going up against my favorite games of the year.

    After losing Best Studio, Best Action Adventure Game, and Best Score we were up to 0 for 5! We were definitely getting even more anxious. The show was coming to a close, and after the amazing Halo Reach world premiere they announced that it was time for the Game of the Year presentation.

    I cheated and looked at the teleprompter so I could see a split second before it was announced and there it was...UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves! It was an amazing feeling walking up on stage to accept the award. They announced we had also won [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] at the same time.

    The night belonged to the team back at [Register or Login to view links] but I couldn't imagine two people better to represent them than our Game and Creative Directors, Bruce and Amy. So they gave their heartfelt acceptance speeches and the show was over.

    From there it was off to the parties and time to celebrate with the rest of the Dogs. A bunch of coworkers who were at the community event/viewing party in Hollywood drove downtown to meet us. It was a great night and I couldn't have been more proud to have been part of such an amazing project.

    We're so glad that a bunch of us got to share the moment with the fans at the community event because in the end, that's really why we work so hard on our games. Knowing that we have an audience that appreciates the end result keeps us coming back to do better next time.

    This was only the second time in Naughty Dog's 15-year history of making PlayStation games that we had won an industry award of this caliber, and we tripled that in one night. We've definitely raised the bar for ourselves in so many ways. But everyone on the team is looking forward to the challenge and we couldn't be more excited to do it again.

    Now it's time to enjoy the holidays, but then it's time to put our noses back to the grind stone and see what happens next.

    Forget about Halo ODST

    Forget about Modern warfare 2

    because Cod4 is the best shooter game ever, Of course they derseved Awards but MW2 is just another shooter game, so nothing special about that

    Halo ODST. Halo 3 is a joke, they dont derseved any awards (im sorry guys) but first Halo is the best.

    All i want to say is THANK YOU Naughty Dog for making one the best games ever,You amaze me, also Thank you to Sony as well for making Powerfull PS3 to allowed Naughty Dog Dev to push further to making best games as possible.

    Well, actually Halo 3 is not joke, check metacritics score and sales. Halo 3 ODST its great addon. Same perfect gameplay, new way to tell the story and great OST. Of course graphin kinda outdated, but still...

    And Uncharted 2 deserved GOTY, I agree 100%.

    I already know the score of HALO 3, But in my opinion they dont deserve any awards same for HALO ODST. First Halo was big at the time, it was unlike any other games, but then releasing new Halo is same damn thing, Don't know who etiher Microsoft or Bungie screw Halo series, And yes I agreed with you that Uncharted 2 dersverd Game of the Year.
