AIAS Best Of 2004 Awards

AIAS Best of 2004 Awards February 1, 2005 - Tonight at the annual D.I.C.E. Summit, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences announced the winners of their annual "Best of" awards. Held at the Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas, the AIAS awards are voted upon by developers, publishers, press and other members of the game industry. Highlights of the night include comic-legend Stan Lee presenting awards for game design and character/story development, uproarious cheering when ESPN NFL 2K5 won the award for best console sports game (complete with an acceptance speech which acknowledged Sega and Visual Concepts had been fighting against a "huge gorilla" for many years and were very honored to receive the award), and Valve's Gabe Newell shambling up to the stage a total of nine times to accept awards for Half-Life 2, the darling of the night, which also won the coveted "Overall Game of 2004."
