In what appears to be an enormous upset, Journey beat out worthy competitors like Dishonored, Halo 4, Borderlands 2, and FTL to seize IGN’s game of the year award. Given the mainstream demographic the site works with, seeing Journey win this award brings me hope and joy. Its a good time to enter games.

Congratulations to Austin Wintory, Jenova Chen, and Matt Nava, as well as the entire staff of thatgamecompany, funomena, and the USC Interactive Media Division for breaking industry trends and doing groundbreaking work in the medium!
