Nominees Named for Game Developers Choice Awards; Recipients to be Announced at CMP Media's Game Developers Conference is the press release announcing the IGDA's annual nominees, including the following group that's up for game of the year: Black & White (Lionhead Studios), Grand Theft Auto III (DMA Design/Rockstar Games), Halo: Combat Evolved (Bungie Studios), ICO (Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc.), and Max Payne (Remedy Entertainment). The inclusion of that last nominee, Max Payne, offers a segue to point out GameSpot's AIAS award nominees story about the recently announced Interactive Achievement Awards Finalists (story) quotes 3D Realms' Scott Miller on the subject of the exclusion of Max Payne from any AIAS nominations as saying: "I've been told confidentially by one of the voters for the nominees that this is because neither 3D Realms, nor Remedy, is a member of AIAS," while quoting an AIAS rep as saying: "The integrity of the system, coupled with a broad-based voting population of Academy members, make the Interactive Achievement Awards the most credible, respected, and recognized awards for interactive entertainment software." This whole situation is the inspiration for an editorial called No Room for Integrity in AIAS Awards? on The Adrenaline Vault.
