PlayStation Awards 2011: and the Winners Are…

The PlayStation awards for this year’s top games have been announced. There are, to be honest, little to no surprises for me as an avid fan of various media genres, including the gaming industry. The ceremony, held by one of the greatest companies around the world – SONY, happened yesterday evening and presented us with the full list of the top selling games from the past year. Yes, do keep in mind that the only way for some games to get in this winners’ list is through a fan’s vote.

This year’s nominates included all games released between November 1, 2010 and October 31, 2011.
