Electronic Arts Wins 13 AIAS Awards


The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences presented Interactive Achievement Awards in 30 craft, console, and online categories, at a star-studded event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Electronic Arts was the big winner with a record 13 awards.

Battlefield 1942, published by Electronic Arts and developed by Digital Illusions, took home the most awards, a total of four, including Game of the Year, Computer Game of the Year, Innovation in Computer Gaming, and Online Gameplay of the Year. Animal Crossing, published by Nintendo of America and developed by Nintendo Co. Ltd., received the next highest number of awards, a total of three, including Innovation in Console Gaming, Console Role-Playing Game of the Year, and Outstanding Achievement in Game Design. Overall, Nintendo received a very impressive seven awards.

“These awards are important because they represent the industry’s picks of the top video games from an amazing field of innovation and creativity,” said Paul Provenzano, President of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. “This year’s winners represent a bold and diverse group of games that illustrate how our industry continues to be a pre-eminent force in entertainment.”

SEGA’s Yu Suzuki, known as a forefather of console video gaming, won the Academy’s coveted Hall of Fame Award.
