Submission + - Second German Game Awards a Farce, again (deutschercomputerspielpreis.de) 1

Ranma-sensei writes: "I know it's a little late to report this, but the following issue has been covered too little in the press (and not at all at Slashdot).

On April 29th, the second German Game Awards have been bestowed to games with innovative, cultural and educational value. The problem is, it' more or less a big joke (English translation). First and foremost there has to be noted that Anno 1404 and Dawn of Discovery are one and the same game. And second, and this is why Anno won in two categories: no nominated game that featured violence in more than the most abstract form really stood a chance.

And yet, even though the assembled press laughed at them, politicians nationwide proclaim this award an essential step towards acceptance of games as cultural heritage. Oh, come on, how is this gonna help us?"
