Origins Awards

Who doesn't like getting an award? You put time, hard work, and money into a project, it's nice to get some recognition for it. Well, The Origins Awards are the oldest and only peer-based awards for hobby gaming. And they've posted up their nominees for this year's awards.
The Origins Awards, given out every year at Origins Game Fair (duh) are quite a badge of honor for those games that win. Getting the notice of The Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design and getting recognized for it is something many game developers hope for. Well, the categories are changing a little for this year. They're also bringing back the Game of the Year award.
