MMOs, free-to-play games, and social and mobile titles all had their time in the spotlight at last month's Game Developers Choice Online Awards
. The prestigious event has come and gone, but the GDC Vault is now inviting viewers to relive the evening with a special video archive of the show.
Hosted by Rebel Entertainment's Mike Goslin, this year's ceremony at GDC Online celebrated best-in-class online games from all over the industry, from hit mobile titles to sprawling MMO juggernauts. Winners included notable games such as Riot's League of Legends
, BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic
, Zynga and Omgpop's Draw Something
, and much more.
In addition, World of Warcraft
won its very own spot in the ceremony's Hall of Fame, and Ultima Online
and Star Wars Galaxies
pioneer Raph Koster received a special honor as an 'Online Game Legend.'
With GDC Online evolving into GDC Next and moving to Los Angeles in 2013, this show will be remembered as the final incarnation of the esteemed Austin-based event. To watch this year's award show for yourself, be sure to check out the above GDC Vault
