DOTA 2 won the IGN People’s Choice Award 2011. With a total of 258, 378 cast during Gamescom, it’s the world’s largest videogame awards. Both event attendees and people sitting at home/work all over the world voted.
DOTA 2 emerged on top, above the other 24 candidates. Although five to six games were at the top at some stage, DOTA 2 ended up the ultimate IGN People’s Choice this year!
While, I don’t really place too much important or emphasis on voting awards like this, it does give me a warm and fuzzy feeling that enough people cared to bother to vote for DOTA 2… instead of just being glued to the amazing streams!
