Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Wins Big at GDC

For many the 2014’s Game of the Year Awards linger as a mere memory of the past, the debate raged on at this year’s Game Developers Conference. While many games were handed an award, Monolith’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was crowned game of the year.There was a lot of competition this year, with the indie-sweetheart, Monument Valley, nabbing three of its own awards.

For our take on GDC’s game of the year, check out our review of Shadow of Mordor where we celebrated how Monolith was able to “make a good game in an established universe.”

My Opinion:

There is no bigger honor as a developer to be named Game of the Year at GDC — this is the best and brightest of the industry rallying around one game as the pinnacle of achievement. Congrats everyone at Monolith! This is a well-earned accomplishment.
