We surpased right now the 70,000 votes mark and set a new record for the European Games Award!

We hope you enjoy beeing part of the biggest people's choice award for video games.


In the Intermediate Results you can see live how the different games compete. We will disable the live view a week before the show to not spoil the final results and keep the tension high during the show!


The following changes was made since the voting started.


A new candidate enters the competition in Best European Racing Game. Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage from Croatian developer Gamepires is a darn good looking successor of Death Rally.




Need for Speed: The Run was developed by EA Black Box in Canada and therefore does not qualify for the European Games Award, albeit it is a very good racing game!




Another news from the categories, we got a hint from EA that Syndicate is going to be indexed in Germany and therefore we have to disqualify the game.




Unfortunately we had to disqualify Dead Island because it's indexed.




Sorry guys, but because of the German youth protection law we are not allowed to make any kind of advertising for indexed games.

Great news!


We have sent everyone who voted in the last two years an invitation for this years voting and we already collected in less than 24 hours more than 30,000 votes. We also contacted all the companies involved in the voting and got great feedback.


They also pointed out some minor mistakes we corrected, mostly grammar or graphical but we also had to change one game that did not met all regulations. We changed the game The Mummy Online from Bigpoint to Pirate Storm also from Bigpoint. The change was made because The Mummy Online was not developed in Europe.
