The "I Hear You" Award – Blizzard Entertainment

GamerNode's You Win!

Welcome to You Win! This GN column has been put together to honor not only the best and the brightest in the videogame industry, but also the most useless, incompetent, and just plain foolish.

GN will be looking at industry news, announcements, game releases, retail, politics, marketing, corporate shake-ups, critics, and anything else that could possibly inspire us to create and bestow a brand new (and extra shiny) custom award as often as possible. The frequency of new "winners" is entirely up to how consistently awesome or despicable everyone chooses to be.

The inaugural You Win! award goes to our old friends at Blizzard Entertainment for finally announcing the long-awaited and intensely pined-for Diablo III. The announcement was made this past Saturday at the 2008 Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Paris, France. This was only after playing a weeklong game of detective with the collective PC gaming community, based solely on the company website’s splash page.

The important part, though, is that the folks at Blizzard have clearly changed the batteries in those volume-enhancing earpieces, and somewhere along the way figured out that eight years has been a long enough wait for Diablo fans to see a sequel to their online dungeon creep of choice. 

For this, Blizzard Entertainment is the proud recipient of the GN "I Hear You" Award.
