Dragon Age: Origins Wins Canadian GOTY Award

Bioware’s Dragon Age: Origins has been named  Game of the Year in the first Canadian Videogame Awards.

The utterly splendid RPG title took the most prestigious award at the ceremony while Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II also performed well, picking up three awards.

“This first event was an excellent showcase of the amazing talent of our videogame developers in Canada,” said Michael Bidu, president of DigiBC.

“Interactive entertainment is one of our country’s leading industries where we are clearly world-renowned, and this world-class event was a fitting way to showcase to the globe the great work done in Canadian studios coast to coast.”

“The awards punctuated what many of us already know; that Canada is home to some of the biggest and most amazing games on the planet,” said Electric Playground’s Victor Lucas, one of the award event organizers.

“We look forward to a bigger and even better show next year to celebrate the kick-ass work of our industry.”
