gma -

The VideoGamer.com Podcast emerged victorious at last night's Games Media Awards, taking the prize in the Games Radio and Podcast category.

I think it's safe to say we're all fairly surprised by the win. Martin, who won VG's first GMA last year, initiated our celebration by lifting me into the air with a bear hug that would have done Zangief proud. Matt and Dave then joined us as we took to the stage, where I spluttered though a brief and rather bewildered thank you speech.

I'd be lying if I said I was at my articulate best last night, so here in the cold (hungover) light of day, I'd like to express my gratitude properly, on behalf of all of us here.

Thank you for voting for us this year, and thank you for all the support you've given us over the past four years. Thank you for the comments, the jokes, the jingles, the insanely long stories, the brilliantly odd questions, and the carefully-constructed posters for Backstroker: The Movie. Thank you for listening to our show. Know that we are hugely grateful, now and always.

Speaking personally, it still spins my head that I get paid to sit in a room with my friends, talking utter b*llocks and interacting with you lot. For us to get an award for doing that... well, it's just wonderful.

And hey, if you've yet to hear our show: here's a link.

Also, congratulations to all of last night's other winners. Eurogamer picked up Best Website for a super-impressive sixth year in a row, while Christian Donlan, Simon Parkin, and Matthew Reynolds were among the winning writers.

I posted this in another thread, but if you want a blast from the past, listen to the special show we did after the first year of the show. It's probably one of the fumiest things I've ever heard. I'm biased, but it's classic stuff.

(Repost) I concur. That episode is the best episode of any podcast I've ever listened to. Probably re-listened to that particular episode about 6 times all the way through now. That special soundmix Seb made of all the buzz ins always cracks me up so much ^_^. Damn good old podcast... Not that the current ones bad! Just have a certain fondness for the old show.

Anyone who thinks VG shouldn't have won that GMA doesn't know the meaning of entertainment.

I have too many favourite moments, from Seb singing my song to the Tom Orry minute, podcast punishments, Martin's first chairing in 2010 and Dave's arrival bringing a new type of kinetic chaos to the show.

But the best thing about the podcast is that it evolves and stays fresh and remains entertaining.

Episode 52 is my 'go to' listen on the long drive to see family down in England. It never gets old.

I also still enjoy the episode that featured James as a mascot: 'anyone for coffee?' 'Yippee!' :D

We've all been listening to that today. I texted Wez about it earlier, and he was already listening to it!

Oh just a bit of banter from the evening I spewed over my Twitter feed this morning.

The topic will probably come up, yes :)

Also, will Martin be spilling what was said to him on why VG shouldn't have won, on the podcast?

... what was that?

Congrats! Long overdue! Did they play the bit from Grand Theft Auto Gypsy? Also, will Martin be spilling what was said to him on why VG shouldn't have won, on the podcast?
