Yesterday, hosted their third annual Inside Gaming Awards. This year has been a ridiculous year for gaming, full of back-to-back marquee titles making the race for Game of the Year (and all the other awards to boot) all the more intense.

While we’re still debating our year-end awards, we will say that Machinima picked some solid winners in each of their categories. It’s also pretty shocking (yet awesome, mind you) that Xbox Live Arcade indie gem Bastion took home the most honors with three awards. However, The fifth title in The Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim, got the vote of the fans with Machinima’s “Gamer’s Choice” award. But honestly, who didn't see that coming?
