By Andrew Yoon, Mar 27, 2013 8:26pm PDT

The Game Developers Choice Awards are probably the most important in games, as the people that make games vote on their favorites of the year. Unsurprisingly, thatgamecompany's Journey takes home the big award--and most every other award this year. In fact, it took home six awards, in every category it was nominated in. Impressively, it even won "Best Visual Arts," beating technical powerhouses Halo 4 and Far Cry 3.
