Select Awards 2016

Next Up: Our Awards Night

The Select Awards voting phase is over, so now we’re gearing up to reveal the winners at our annual party. To be held in a central Sydney location on February 3, the event will reveal your choices for best visual design, best audio design, best game design, best storytelling, best multiplayer, best original game and finally, the best overall game of 2016. You’ll be able to relive some of the year’s greatest games during the night, but you’ll also get the chance to play a host of unreleased titles – more on those soon – thanks to all our friends in the industry.

RSVPs are open now so click on the big, shiny RSVP button below and you’ll be able to enter for your chance to score a free double pass. It’s a competition of skill this year, as opposed to first in best dressed, but all you need to do is tell us – in 50 words or less – what YOUR favourite game of 2016 was and why. Make sure your entry is a good one and hopefully we’ll be seeing you in Sydney at the biggest night on the Australian gaming calendar!

IGN’s Select Awards are a celebration of the best gaming experiences each year, as determined by IGN’s Australian and New Zealand audience. Voting runs for a month from mid-December and the winners are announced at an event in February. The awards night is a chance for IGN’s community to come together with the industry to share a common love of gaming; to look back at the games of the previous year, and to look ahead to some of the most exciting titles on the near horizon.
