Flower has won the Best Independent Game Award at Video Game Awards in 2009. Other nominees include 'Spolsion Man, Osmos and Trials HD.
Well deserved unlike hugh jackman winning 2 awards for his lackluster acting...
Hugh Jackman's awards are disappointing. Anyways, FLOWER FTW! Well deserved indeed.
Very well deserved. I was pretty amazed that this won.
Yep, I expected Trials HD but was very pleasantly surprised by Flower's victory.
I thought it would be Trials HD too, which I did have a lot of fun with, but Flower was my favorite.
They deserve it. It was a fantastic and original game
Flower is the definition of creativity and originality.
I saw that Jackman won, but what exactly did he win for?
he won for his performance in the new wolverine game
Flower kicks @$$
and what about megan fox ?? that was a disgrace ... Anyway ...flower deserved thattitles ..and that's about the only thing done rihgt so far in the show ( i try to forget tison jokes ...or the tirade against tiger wood ... or even the STUPID joke on fps .. )
Performance? this implies he put effort into it.
I must say that I love Flower. I'm a hardcore RPGamer, but I loved it's integration with the SIXAXIS motion controls. Simple, effective, and ultimately accessible. I also love the zen effect about calmly flying about in the wind opening flowers, and progressing. Truly a great and playable game for anyone. If you have a PS3 and have not yet experienced it, spend the 10 dollars and experience the zen. It's amazing how calm and relaxed you can feel playing such an original game.
awesome for TGC, game was superbly different.
I am so happy Flower won this, I feared it might have gone to Osmos (steam game that is a clone of fl0w) or Trials HD (former free game, now in "HD" with fluerescent bloom)
Flower was definitely one step closer into the realm of "videogames as art". It was probably the most relaxing and wonderful gaming experience I've played in a long time
just when i heard nominations.. I was sure that Flower will win the award.. and They won.. Awesome..
I figured they would give it to Splosion Man, Trials HD, or some other mediocre game that shouldn't have actually won like their other awards.
Wow, I'm surprised. Another retarded post by Ninji. Wait...no, I'm not.
Flower, is therapeutic and brilliant. Well deserved.
Well deserved win! Congrats to ThatGameCompany.
Off topic, but have they shown Medal of Honor yet? It's pretty much the only reason I'm watching.
I'm growing rather tired of all these war-based shooters. However, I know that Medal of Honor was the series that really spearheaded the whole war game concept on consoles, so I do have a soft spot in my heart for it. Let's hope that EA can manage to do right with this one -- AND, I hope they bring back Micheal Giacchino for the soundtrack. He never disappointed in the least with his epic compositions!
ANYBODY SEE CRACK DOWN REACH?? THAT GAME IS GONNA BE EPIC!!....EPIC FAIL
I loled when infinity ward said ye we put alot of blood sweat and tears in mw 2 and im like it plays like a beta and has a 5 hour i think you rushed it out in 6months.
I don't see how much "blood sweat and tears" they could have put into the game when the graphics engine isn't even updated? Like you also stated, the campaign is laughably short. Not to mention all the damn bugs and glitches that the game contains. It seems with every passing day comes a new glitch or game exploit is discovered...
Congrats to Jenova and his team. Props to Sony for giving the green light on development of the game.
My gf love the game an I in joy playing it, it was a shock to see it win Vs 2 XBL games and happy to see "That Game Company" win.
Can't wait for 'That Game Company' to make more awesome games.
Flower is the opposite of every game I like...games that are intense, fast paced, action packed, & challenging. And I love Flower for being that opposite game. It is a beautiful, soothing, pleasurable thing to play. Totally relaxing & hypnotic.
I'm stunned! Quality & creativity being acknowledged & rewarded instead of being sneered at and diminished... What has the world come to?
