The mammoth 48-hour judging session took place on the 26th and 27th of January, with a star-studded panel comprising of journalists, publishers, developers and other industry experts.

This year saw over 1,000 entrants from all continents. The panel reduced the entrants down to 93 nominees, making this the biggest year yet! The ten categories aim to celebrate the best games of the year, those with technical excellence, moving storylines, beautiful design and even guilty pleasures.

Nominees are invited to the 11th IMGA ceremony held on March 3 in San Francisco, where 2014's best games will be awarded. The winner of the People's Choice Award will be decided by the public. Voting will open today: you can vote for your favorite games among the nominees.
